I'm probably the person who posts more to classifieds than anyone else. And I'll be honest, it's so difficult to use this part of the site - starting with the insistence that dollars are the only form of currency that exists, which is not helpful for a seller in the UK - that I'm thinking about giving up on it.

 

The latest thing is the need to add an image to every ad, which will soon get through the space made available for uploads. I assume that this has been done to deter spammers, and that there's some way to delete images from it. but if so it doesn't seem to be obvious. For example, a couple of weeks ago I tried to sell a couple of F55 bodies and uploaded an image. They didn't sell on eBay, so I want to rewrite the listing. But will it let me re-edit the listing after two weeks, or reuse that image (accessed via "my media") as the compulsory image in another ad? Of course not. So the only way to do it will be to copy the thing and upload it again, eating another 350k of storage space. Except that I'm going to start making images much smaller to eke out the remaining space, which probably wasn't the intention.

 

So my immediate question - is there a way to delete images from "my media"? And in the longer haul, can something be done to make classifieds little less complicated and fix some of the problems?
