It seems like at least 25% of bst ads have just links to pictures and aren't actually embedded. I nkow with how much time the mods here have to spend browsing through ads it would save you guys, the mods, and other members searching through ads a lot of time by not having to go to a whole other website. So my suggestion is to make a rule where all pictures must be embedded.

We have enough work making sure people have proper pictures in the first place, I personally don't care if they are links.

Embedded is better, no doubt. Better for the mods and buyers. It's poor selling technique to do it any other way. However, some people don't know how to and we aren't going to warn them for being new here.

Also warning people is more work then just going to the link. And as etek said ... There's enough rules.

If the seller doesn't want to learn or bother embedding, it's their loss.

Many won't bother clicking on their links.

Maybe a sticky could be added telling people that it's beneficial to their ad to embed their pictures?

Sounds like you want us to force people to accommodate you. It's their sale thread.

It's no different then saying "sig". That's passť since 40% of the browsing is done by mobile and sigs don't show up. If somebody is a good BSTer they will get the better results.
