    Why is the flea market gone? VERY useful and integral $ benefit to membership. I use cash from selling cycle stuff to pay for membership dues.
    Magazine is top notch but bring back flea market.

    Syl, you're probably doing what I was doing: Clicking Flea Market Icon on the Home Page, but it takes you to NOWHERESVILLE! Instead, click this Syl:

    http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/forumdis...85-Flea-Market Probably most of us are still clicking the Home Page Flea Market Icon, should be removed!

    I discussed this issue with the St. Louis office staff today. They plan on changing the Home Page link to the Flea Market to point to the new in-forum Flea Market. Once that is done, all roads will lead to the Market!!!

    Ok,

    So the bulliten board needed to be upgraded.
    The old Flea Market was a home brew, but why is it gone?

    I like the old format MUCH better.

    And it seems any negative comments are nipped in the bud (Thread locked in the flea market about the format change)
    And the update page also does not allow comments.

    Where do we go to ask for updates (or downgrades) we as members may want??

    The old Flea Market had to be built separately since it was not a supplied part of VBulletin. The resources for rebuilding the Flea Market are not avaiable to do that. So, the interim solution was to create an in-forum Flea Market. When the new forum comes along in the next few months, the older style Flea Market will likely be back. I showed what the initial look was like in this link...notice the the Flea Market tab is located across the top:

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean. The upper level of the Flea Market is closed for posting as there is no reason to post there...the idea is to go to one of the areas within the Flea Market to post an ad. There are other places that you can, and people already have, discussed the new forum. Some of those places are:

    http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthre...ew-Flea-Market
    http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthre...orum-is-Doomed
    http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthre...s-it-should-be

    So, if you have some comments about the current state of the Flea Market, there's plenty of places to read what others are saying and voice your opinion. If you see it differently, please let me know.
