    Posters should be required to at least state there general location. ie State, City

    Baby steps I guess...

    We FINALLY have someone tell us where the bike for sale is at! NOW... does anybody know what EQUIPMENT PACKAGE came on their bike?
    Really POOR adds mostly across the board on bike listings... seldom anything on dealer service comments; I see all kinds of things in the pic's
    that are not mentioned for example. And if you have aftermarket seats, windscreens...ect... do you still have the OEM stuff that goes along?
    And as unbelievable as it may sound... I've called and many don't know if there's ASC, TPM on their 12RT??? You'll keep your bike if you can't
    load the dealer invoice/spec sheet for many of us to see....cause I can't see a security system on your photo's. Get with the program....
    your attempting to sell a $16,000 - 20,000 motorcycle to a member! OR...I say OR... if this lousy IT Update the MOA PAID FOR is causing this
    much difficulty for our members to use correctly and is dropping info... lets go back to the last tried & true program; get our money back & file
    for dam-damages!!! You'll believe me if you try to "sort" while looking to buy a bike!

    Thumbs down Can this be fixed???

    WHY are the adds NOT showing the CITY & STATE of the listing????? I KNOW the items are IN the United States unless the the person

    selling tells me otherwise... So an add that tells me "Crestwood" United States, is little help to me when I expect to arrive at their driveway

    to take a delivery of the motorcycle! Am I driving 3 miles or 3,000 miles to do this!?! Is "Crestwood" in NJ or CA ???

    I wish....

    .....I had your good luck to have a city & state listed either place! I don't understand it Kurt; but all the motorcycle for sale listings on my "upgrade"
    simply show a "city" if lucky...many say "private", and then "United States". As I go in to the listing, many if not all show nothing on location
    data ; so if they don't mention anything in the text/description... I have no clue unless I contact them or if a phone # search by area code in
    general...which is a hassle. Thanks Kurt for responding above. John


    Just noticed a parts post on page 1 that says " Newfoundland United States".... can't tell me its easy for folks wanting to sell either.

    Make sure you're actually logged in to the Flea Market. The first picture shows the first three listings when I'm logged in...while it just says Detroit on the first one, when I click on the ad, it says Detroit, Michigan in the ad. Even as a guest, most of this information appears.

    There is another thread where a member can get to the FM, but there are no links for him to add a listing...just not there, but he's clearly logged in. Since the FM is separate from the forum, there are no forum controls on who sees what. I plan on calling the office...I think I'll ask about this, too.

    The interface of the Flea Market is being updated in quasi-realtime. Depending on your membership status, you might not be able to see much. It was clear, though, that some ads didn't show the state, etc. As things get updated, the posting of an ad should (hopefully) require all of that pertinent information.

    I'm logged in and accounted for, though don't know my "membership status" per se... I have recently become a "number", NOT membership,
    possibly of multiple "something" from 2010 & now again April 2013. There's a lot not right in my profile/status.... on the forum anyhow, well..
    wife say's in reality also...another problem/concern. I regress... I checked what I know how to do here... those bike add's confound me, mostly
    because I'm trying to "find" me a RT from another member who post's a listing that allows me to know where its at. Should I call HQ???
    Thanks again...John

    You may have hit the nail on the head...you're both a number and your "regular" username. And you're not the only one, unfortunately. So, you may be in a limbo status because of it. There is a method to merge users, but I'm reluctant to try it on real members. So, if it's all the same to you, please call the office tomorrow and explain this FM situation to Jeff. I actually used you as an example of the mixed up member status. Mention that as well and ask him to check it out. It's important this gets resolved.

    This might be our test case Kurt Maybe he wants to make merge history What's the worst that could happen

    Smile Seeking....

    ....legal council before "merge user" action; fear of adverse action like removal of my sweepstakes ticket from the hopper!
    My heart rate is soaring now thinking about the phone call and the repercussion's. Could this even lead to class-action
    litigation against our new MOA Executive Director? Geez... I like Bob!!!

    Reckon if my voting ballot for MOA B.o.d. is returned I'll know it's trouble time!

    I am 179219 since forum upgrade
    FlyHi2cFar in past forum history
    aka: "travelin" john in the states & "three bowl" north of the border; long story.

    Hmmm, kinda interesting. Kurt and I have been watching the goings on pretty hard and had noticed the discrepancy and "dual" usernames. I see you as FlyHi2cFar now. Have you noticed yourself as 179219 lately?
    I'm also wondering if after the last forum down-time you logged back in or sorta re-registered- if you can remember.

    Thumbs up

    have a look at MY post #3 above in this thread.... that is/was me "during" the upgrade; when it came back on line with me as a number?

    I then modified my profile to flyhi2cfar.. and "lost" my majority data...including my sub title; "travel'in" john

    My action resulted in what/how i am now. I do know of a time when i was informed there were TWO of me, or something in forum/moa
    speak like that; believe that was in 2010.

    Thank you caring & sorry for the trouble...
