    Flea Market

    When I tried to sign on the other day, I got a message that there were repairs/upgrades to the web site being done. Since then, I have no trouble getting the web site to come up, but when I click on the Flea Market, I get a error message. I am logged in OK, any thoughts to what I seem to be doing wrong?

    It is my understanding that the Flea Market is still being worked on and will be back shortly...let's hang in there, the mechanics are hard at work behind the scenes...

    I'm going thru flea market withdrawal...when is it going to be back up ?
    In the end, you will regret much more those things you didn't do, than those which you did.

    For now, go here: http://forums.forums.bmwmoa.orgdispl...85-Flea-Market


    It's at the very bottom of the main forum page.


    This is just a bandaid to get by until the main forum gets sorted out, but at least it's something.

    Folks, Lee's link is to a section of the forum where we're testing a possible replacement of the Flea Market. If anyone besides a moderator tries to click on that link, it will indicate you don't have permissions to view that. So, don't waste your time...and don't report that it isn't working...it's pretty obvious.

    All I can say is that it would be possible to create some semblance of the old Flea Market so that at least people could track down ads they remember seeing. It would be nothing like the old Flea Market, but it would give us a place to start. I understand there's some Flea Market withdrawl going on, but doing what I just suggested would take some time...the holiday season is probably not the best time to try and do this. Alternatively, all of the old stuff could be scrapped and we would start over. I'm strongly considering the first option for the time being...which means it will be a little more time before anything was up and running.

    That's my position at this point...but will continue to think about things.
