    It is in the production pipe-line for completion by the end of the first quarter of 2006.

    I think you will see an on-line flea market by the end of the first quarter of 2006.

    Rob: when you get classifieds here, it's gonna do wonders for your web traffic counts.

    Yep. We see it as a vital member benefit. Finally, you'd have an online place to sell your stuff that was free of scammers and the like. You'll be able to put a photo of your stuff up as well.

    If you think about Cycle Trader, they charge $60 or so to provide a ten day ad with similar functionality.

    When you add in that these ads will go only to MOA members, it might be the safest bet in online BMW sales on the 'net.

    Best,

    are we in the first quarter now?

    I'm not sure if the moa is in some crazy tax calender where the first quarter starts in december of the following year or something. I heard soon 2 years ago so I wonder.

    Depends on how good you are at convincing her.

    We are.

    The plan is to have a presentation for the board meeting in three weeks, then some tweaks and tuning followed by go live. The actual go live day may be determined with consideration of the print publication schedule.

    This translates to after the middle of the month, either Feb or March, depending on how things go over the next few weeks.

    Does anyone else think that the policy that requires chosing on-line or ON will result in the ON ads only being stuff that is overpriced or won't sell? I think most members will try to sell on-line first because there is no delay. Only the stuff that won't sell on-line will end up in the ON.

    MAYBE, for ads placed through the web site. But, a lot of folks will still want to use the ON because a) *they* don't use web sites to buy things themselves, and b) for some time yet, there will be a lot more readers of the ON than viewers of the web classifieds. Most of the ads submitted for the Flea Market now are sent via email, but I don't think that necessarely implies that "most" people view web listing sites. Virtually everyone has email at work.

    The point of requiring the choice, as I see it, is to help cut down on the number of items that get sold off the web before the print ad sees the light of day. This can sure be adjusted based on our experiences.

    I would prefer:

    ON ads are different that the online (or as I like to call it "ON online") ads

    No questions, bumps, comments etc. (use PMs for that) only original poster can add to the thread or edit.

    ads automatically deleted after a set time.
