    FYI:
    I accidently found this site through askjeeves. This seems like an
    interesting way to get people to a site. The site owner used a model
    (near-nude) to display auction items. Very creative. Looks like
    painters plastic was used as a backdrop!

  5. Not much of a geek or a photographer. FWI jpegs work much better than
    gifs. As for your photography skills, you may want to work on that. As
    for your model, make up does wonders. or find a hottie that is a bit
    younger. Buy a high end digital like a Fuji Finepix S7000. Watch for
    hot spots. Better yet find a competent photog in your area and pay
    them.

    I would say your pathetic auction site will last about two weeks, as
    hundreds of angry people flood it with fake ids and bids so you end up
    selling none of the crap. I think I'll sign up and make a few killer bids
    right now.

    Why diminish the quality of the item with a picture of a woman? The woman
    isn't for sale. Or is she? Pardon me, but I think any of us can do better
    than that IRL.

  8. The "no bids" across the board says it all.

    The model has MILF potential!

    Some people claim that there's a woman to blame, but I think it's all...

    Richard's fault!

  10. Cheap digital camera + web access + site-building tools + Jr. high
    schooler + woman with questionable judgement = DISASTER

  11. I was thinking the same thing but didn't want to be that mean.

    The model is not unattractive, but she is not doing herself any favors
    by appearing here!

    If you took out that aspect, there is really nothing wrong with the
    site.

    The site has a message board. Perhaps we should all post some
    constructive criticism. No flames or meanness just in case it is an
    honest newbie mistake.

  12. The message board requires registration. I sent this e-mail:

    Subject: Constructive criticism

    This site was promoted in several photography newsgroups, and it has
    not been received in the matter that you may have hoped.

    The way in wish you use a female model to accent merchandise is in
    poor taste. The female form has effectively been used many times for
    marketing, but that is best left to the pros. My suggestion would be
    to avoid using this tactic at all.

    Otherwise, it looks like a well laid-out site that is a needed
    alternative to Ebay. It will be an uphill battle competing with them.

    I wish your venture the best of luck, and hope you will accept my
    constructive criticism.

    Geessh! It's not that bigga deal. Of course it's not in very good
    taste. So what! We're not the Victorian morals or esthetics police,
    are we? Have a chuckle & get over it. John
