I have made a For Sale listing. Have received "PMs" but no "Reply".

There is no Reply, Quote or Quick Quote buttons on my post.

Did I screw up somehow?

I'm trying to create a listing for a handgun for sale. Your instructions say: "go to the appropriate section (handguns, ammo, etc). If you are selling a handgun go to the FOR SALE HANDGUNS section". I can't even find a list of the appropriate sections to go to. Where's the list?

Thanks.

If you use pic editing software (I use Picasa) you can click on the "Export" button (down at the bottom when in edit mode) and reduce the file size. If you right click and highlight the pics you can export them all at once. Picasa defaults to 800 pixels, which is small enough to upload and retains the quality of the image. The exported folder can be found in mypictures/picasa/export....or something like that.
