Why is it ?

Why is it when someone starts a post about a "problem" or "quality issue" they NEVER have

pictures to back it up ? Show us the problem or stop complaining.

1. There not techno savy 2. It's a conspiracy of one 3. they don't feel like taking a picture 4. there deep undercover trolls who's only mission is to denigrate Invicta and start a fight 5. They simply feel that explaining the issue has more merit than providing empirical evidence

Welcome to watchgeeks a part from that who knows Jon

Pictures are not required to post a complaint or a gripe nor does lack of a picture or failure to post one mean that the complaint is unfounded or invalid. Either believe the complainant or not and reply or not as you see fit. Capisce? __________________

I actually have seen pics posted of the problem expressed, though rare. Never thought the "complaint" was an invalid one though! Actually, many WGs back up the problem with the same watch they own, or similar movement, with same problem, etc. Uploading pics is time consuming and rarely would add to finding a solution! IMO! __________________

Good question. Sounds like the perfect job for this guy: "Did you ever wonder....."


btw, it took me about 20 seconds to find the photo of Mr. Grumpy, upload it & then post it here. So once you become familiar it's pretty straight forward. And, most geeks are happy to help those who need assistance. __________________

Copy the link formated with [IMG] tags. 3. Paste the link or links into new thread or comment box. 4. Submit the thread or comment and you're done.

Posting pictures is not complicated at all ,as a matter of fact it is very simple . Photo Bucket is FREE and when you take the pictures from your camera you have to download them to your computer anyway so just put them on photo bucket. After they are there each pic comes with 4 links you choose the bottom one that starts with IMG and post that link in the thread .This is DIFFICULT !!!! . Telling others it is complicated when it is basically a 3 step process is not a fair assessment

Why post a complaint to begin with? Why not just make a decision to either get it fixed, throw it in the trash or send it back? Most people like to complain, Biatch, or snivel about how their whole life is turned upside down because of a problem with a watch. It is a joke actually and I find it amusing that a grown man has to come to a watch forum and complain about a simple situation...but then again I shouldnt be surprised. __________________ Hmmmmmmm.

Discussions surrounding quality, performance and defects are not only fair game, they're expected. How they're expressed and responded to is a wholly different matter.

Well, and diplomatically put, Brad... __________________

Follow your own advice and just suck it up. __________________

Gee, let me see here. If I buy an automatic, and find that it loses 5 minutes every hour, how do I photograph that? I know, just show two pictures, one at 2 PM and one at 3 PM showing the........, naw, that won't work either. unless I post two more pictures of a 2nd watch that keep perfect time, next to the one........., naw, that won't either.

If its done the right way its not whining at all. What should we do let the next guy get a fked up watch because someone doesnt want to hear about their problem then it happens to them.That is the purpose of a watch forum to discuss the good and the bad not to hide the problems under a rug and put our pom poms on and cheer every watch.Who is anyone to judge what is whining and what is a legit problem? __________________

Got it! That means that when a geek needs to post a thread with a WATCH problem he should go post on the AMATEUR GARDENING FORUM... just because the OP doesn't like reading them!!! BTW my camera doesn't work, need any pictures?? __________________ Reinier reinierramirez View Public Profile

Misery loves company. I have seen lots of posts on WGs from sports fans that are frustrated with their teams performance. They pretty much tear the team apart. When we feel let down we want others to join us in beating up the target. Like Brad said, why have a forum of people going rah!! rah !! only ? Constructive honest critiques make everything better. I am sure Michael and Eyal actually appreciate it when it is honest and thought out, it helps them make a better product. __________________ "Let the Free Market rule"

Maybe if I................... see the problem? You dont post a picture, you send it in for repair, you throw it in the trash or you send it back. Pretty simple dont you think? I received two brand new watches last year thatone was off by 5 minutes a day and another that would stop for no reason. I didnt come on here and complain, whine or just inform the GREAT members of this forum LOL. Why well first of all it wasnt a ongoing problem it was a isolated instance, and both of those companies fixed the watches and they run smooth as silk. I didnt go to the Breitling forum and snivel about my $5000 watch having a problem either or my Omega Seamaster bracelet prloblem. I handled my business and moved on, Like I said I dont need a shoulder to cry on when things dont go my way, If there is a ongoing problem like poor plating, Hands falling off things of this nature and i run into will I express my situation........SURE I WILL, but I dont feel any clear headed person should complain about every situation that comes up. __________________ Hmmmmmmm.

Show us the problem or stop complaining. You know, I figure its a thing called being human... humans are either nice, thoughtless, mean, happy, forgetful, silly, over achievers, under achievers, radical, wimpy, goofy, whiny, crazy, psychotic,


procrastinating, normal (how boring) or maybe even supercilious... whoops, I almost forgot the best one... lazy. But that is my best guess as to your post's original query... __________________

I understand the sentiments of the OP. There have been times, especially a first poster when a picture would more convince me. That said, it is a pain to post pictures here. The only way to reliably do it that I know of is to post a link to somewhere you have uploaded the pic. Not everyone has pics uploaded anywhere. Even then you have to know how to correctly link to them. Add to that, If you post from your alblum, the picture does not always show up. so I have given up doing that.


I think there is one other consideration. Any product will have a given problem from time to time, some defect. If it is actually a problem overall, more than one person will post about it. __________________ You mean what time is it now? tampa8 View Public Profile Send a private message to tampa8 Find all posts by tampa8 Add tampa8 to Your Contacts #75 Today, 09:35 AM Join Date: Apr 2009 Location: chicago Posts: 2,794
