I put a post in the 'Angry Thread' on 1st May about the lawn mower I had ordered. Anyways, it arrived yesterday afternoon. I got it all connected up - did not have much choice, the box would not fit through the door! So this morning, in goes the oil and petrol and I pressed the button - it is electric start. Boy oh boy, what a mower  :goggleeyes:. It normally takes me about 4 or 5 hours, (allowing for coffee/cigarette/email breaks), to get the front lawn* cut. Today it took me about two and a half hours and that included 3 breaks.  :o. What a lovely machine, as I said, electric start, self moving, (I have to run to keep up with it - okay, a slight exaggeration  ;)). It even has two cup holders (!) although I think I would spill more lager than I could drink.

*For lawn, read, tamed area of grass in middle of field.

You're still being vague (illusive?) about what sort of mower it is.

Oops!  :-[ As regards PM's, my whelm is well and truly overed.  :) . Do you want me to still list as you suggest @Tank, I am just thinking that I may well be disposing of 100+ items - would it better to do a few smaller lists and if so, how many per list would you suggest, bearing in mind each item would be accompanied by a photograph? I would hate to break something on the forum!  ;)

In my last gargantuan sale end of last year I grouped things into ads with one pic of them all e.g. MK1 coaches, LMS wagons, LNER wagons etc and when anything was bought from that ad I just edited the list, opened the photo with 'Paint', marked the item as SOLD and then replaced the original pic with the new one. If there's anything I can help you with just let me know

I imagine most people PMing you know the sort of thing youíre selling, but I genuinely would at least give that guidance. Iíve no idea if you model British, Continental or Uzbekistani.

Just saying ďIíve got loads of stuff to sellĒ is likely to engender people saying ďhave you got x, y or z?Ē.

If you list items individually then youíll be there for months. I remember NNís lists as that worked well.

If people want photos they can ask for them, again, Iíd personally not upload photos of 100 items individually, but perhaps a single photo of the items in that grouped listing. The coaches. The locos. Whatever it might be.

I'm interested but, without knowing what you have to sell, I don't see any point in asking if you have "X" or "Y".
