CA Forum and Marketplace?

Why has the CA Forum been overrun with people selling shit? Move it to the Marketplace yo.

There's stuff that's just too big or expensive to ship. In that situation, it makes more sense to post here.

Well, some people tend to overlook some stuff. Sometimes, it tends to sell quicker locally.

Agreed.

That's reality and not a big deal. Much easier to sell locally, thus posting here. I see no problem with it and would recommend it over the normal selling board.

It's just a natural progression as the car goes out of production. Another forum that I'm on, over half the posts on the entire forum are for sale ads.

Makes sense but the California thread should have an attached market place. Periodically when I want see whats up with all my friends and half the posts are "FS bla bla bla bla" I lose interest.

I get ya. That's why I created a Facebook group for NorCal/SF Bay Area just so my fiends and I can keep in touch and updated with social activities. Maybe someone should do the same. The group started with 10 people last summer and has spawned to over 180 members. We have drives, C/C, photoshoots, track days, dinners, karting, shooting range, dinners, and anything else we can use as an excuse to meet up. Maybe someone in SoCal should start one up? I know that Bimmerpost is much more active in SoCal than NorCal.

I agree with you. The S2000 forums did this and it worked great.

Cool I'll see what I can do. The San Diego M3 guys on here don't do much. I've tried to set up a roster but no dice. That's why I involve myself with the OC/LA guys. Much more fun.
