Just to prove my previous point, putting the Flea market in the "new posts" search will exponentially grow it, IMHO. I buy sell and trade stuff all the time, I have 4 in the family that ride, so always wearing out stuff or looking for upgrades.
I frequent ADV rider, and ebay (over 500 transactions) perusing the offerings, but in the years I have been here I have never listed, on only a couple times looked here.....................Until Yesterday, I hit new posts and low and behold someone was selling a set of BMW Goretex inserts, in my size!! I have been looking for a year for a set to go with my BMW Atlantis pants, I bought last year off the Pelican R1100S forum, and the Santiago Jacket I picked up a few months ago on ADV rider.
So my vote is to leave it as it is now, I will bet a piece of pie to any detractor, that in 6 months, the volume and speed of sales will be up a minimum 25%, and listings will increase due to the exposure. I win, you buy the pie!
Proof is in the pudding!
...is it possible to add a radial button in the "Miscellaneous Options" section below stating "Vendor" or "Member".
What that button "broadcasts" is up to the folks behind the screen. Perhaps a different "icon" in list view stating vendor.
Yes, vendors should have access to the Flea Market if they are in fact buying ad space OR if they are of course a Dues Paying Member in good standing.
This way we know with whom we are dealing.
This is just an alternate idea to a whole new additional section.
IÔÇÖm not a rally rat so I find very few threads worth opening on the forum. However, having the flea market listings in the regular ÔÇ£new postsÔÇØ listing makes the site much more interesting for me.

I like it the way it is, as it comes up with new posts.
Very easy to skim by if it's not of interest, but I've noticed myself looking at much more posts about parts and gear. Before, I would cruize through the flea market once in a couple of weeks - just didn't think to go there......
I'll bet posters to the flea market will have much better luck with their sales too!
