    Yes I must admit I have been checking constantly when today I discovered this:

    If you go here: http://www.bmwmoa.org you still get the "down for maintenance" message.

    But if you here: http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/forum.php the new site is slowly coming back to life!

    No Flea Market yet but much other interesting functionality. Like links that are auto recognized finally!

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    Is there some kind of BMW conspiracy going on? I cannot log on to the Yankee Beemers either.Can't seem to contact them to try and figure it out.

    Smile

    Up and running as of last night.

    And yes - missed it.

    I use it for information and opinions, reference my monthly ON column at times.

    Right now - trying to ID whomever goes by "BenDiem?'


    Thanks to efforts at MOA HQ - my understanding is Jeff is now in the Witness Protection Program!

    I am not sure, whether the downtime was worth it. It may be a matter of getting used to it, but so far, I absolutely hate the buttons. Red and blue envelopes. Both open or closed. Takes me a while to figure out where new posts are.....

    It's good to have it back up. Now I just have to figure out what these blue and red envelopes mean.

    The site being unavailable...

    disrupted my daily routine. I am a creature of habbit I am happy that the forum has been restored with what appears to be a good upgrade...likely the one talked about over the last few months.

    Aloha.

    Not correct! There are red ones (which are hot threads) which have no replies!
    The "reply or not" is only marked with the envelope being open or closed. And THAT is really difficult to see. Especially for the Airhead crowd, where the average age is 65!

    The New Posts button is at the upper left of the page.
    Yesterday Greg Feeler mentioned in another post that the new site will not be up for a couple weeks.

    This looks like a temporary setup. Greg Feeler said it would be a couple weeks before the new site is up and running.

    Edit: In the same thread I mentioned, Omega Man said this is the new setup.
    Here's the thread. http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthre...-Forum-Blocked
