I'm not sure there is an easy solution to this.
Fair play for volunteering to be the valuations photos person, but I suspect there is going to be a shit load of work involved in that and all you will get is grief. "Why aren't my pictures up, I emailed you 2 hours ago" when the email arrived at ten pm on a Sat night or the poster is from the States/Oz. etc etc. We are mainly a UK based forum but we have plenty of overseas members so this could well complicate things, and there are a lot of listings on there.
Our current system isn't perfect, I sympathise with Rich, but I'm not sure any of the suggested improvements don't also come with large drawbacks that would end up being exploited as well. I'm not trying to shoot down this thread, quite the opposite, I just don't know that there is an option that will solve the problem, not create others AND not involve massive amounts of work for someone. Happy to hear what people think though.
And just to confirm what Edd said, we can't read your PM's. Hell us mods don't even know who is PM'ing who. Your PM's are totally private.
