Buick Buy / Sell Forum


Recommended Posts

Have I lost my way in the forum maze . . . or has the Buick Buy / Sell Forum vanished?

 

Edit note:  Okay, I've found it.  The Buick Buy / Sell Forum has become part of a new section of the AACA forums that covers Buy / Sell.  It no longer shows up under the Buick forums section, but can be accessed directly from the BCA home page.

After Peter Gariepy made the changes to the Buy/Sell Forum there was a link to the Buick Buy/Sell Forum in the Buick Forum. Apparently he has recently removed that link. You may want to ask him about it in the Forum Questions Forum.

Thank you.  Yes, I had grown accustomed to using that link in the Buick forums, but it is now missing.

But it was a CONVENIENT forwarding link for when one is in the Buick section to just click and go to the Buick Buy/Sell and not have to scroll up and find it in the Buy and Sell - General Motors Buy and Sell.  I'm wondering what was the problem with that convenience and if none, would you please consider placing it back

Ben, don't disparage yourself!  No one at any age

should need to relearn common things just because

someone randomly changed them.  Software revisions

are notorious for such change:  After you become

fluent in one version, you have to figure out where

the commands are in a newer version.

 

I speak generally, not on the merits of our forum's menus.

 

Suppose a pianist had to relearn the keyboard, because

every few years, some piano keys were rearranged,

and new music came out to adjust to the random change.

No!  The science of music is constant, and a pianist can

play the same piece that Mozart wrote a few hundred

years ago!

The buy/sell section is not a mystery.

 

I'm not adding the courtesy link anymore. It's not necessary.

 

I removed 6 similar links and have had no other complaints.

 

Please... just scroll to the buy/sell. Its not that big an inconvenience.

Then I guess we are left to wonder why Oldsmobile, CCCA and Reatta weren't included in those that were removed. I'm simply not understanding why for the sake of convenience each marque can't have the simple and sweet Buy/Sell courtesy forwarding link that with one click takes them to their respective section.

First the AACA gave up hosting the forum as the Buick Club of America Forum (while retaining CCCA) and while I never knew the why of that, I got over it. Then the Buick Buy and Sell Forum was removed from the Buick section and I understood the logistics of that. But why a simple courtesy link to Buick Buy Sell can't be had, well, I'm having a real hard time understanding that one, especially when others get to retain theirs. But I see you have dug your heels in and said it ain't gonna happen so so be it. Thanks for all you do elsewhere and otherwise here though.

Well that didn't end like I had hoped. Standing by for the hate mail.  Peter you and I have worked together on resolving many concerns here on the forum and I've generally been able to see your points and I think you most often saw mine but I'll just have to go on record as saying I'm just not seeing yours this time. But I respect your position and opinion and won't question this one anymore. In other words I'll shut up about it, looks as if I've done more harm than good.  

Sorry Olds, CCCA and Riatta guys.

LOL... yea... I can be an opinionated and yes... I can make mistakes. In this case I think its the right move.

Given time and feedback I'll reconsider.

But at the moment the buy/sell is getting a boatload of usage. Arguably more than before.  So I think I made the right changes.

OK but could you please restore a link to whatever the buy/sell forum is now back in the Reatta (and other) forums. Please, Pretty Please with sugar.

Is one of your rare opportunities to tell us where to go.

I bet they'd get even more if you'd make it easier to get to them by putting the links back. I know, I said I'd shut up...I lied.

Merging the Reatta Buy/Sell posts with all the other Buick Buy/Sell posts was like scattering a handful of sand onto a sandy beach.  We know where they went but they quickly disappeared from view. Like grains of sand through an hourglass, so are the days of our Reatta forum. :)

not arguing with that, the new Buy/Sell  format is awesome and the two Not Mine guys are doing a fantastic job of helping to keep the numbers way up and interesting. Now if only there was an easier way for readers to jump right to it from their favorite marquee forum, well that would just be the cats meow.

Facebook is easier...many more crazy people that I have to block but I can find things all in one place.  😁

I am new to this Forum and am looking to buy a Buick, but it took me a very long time to find this buy sell forum, why can't there be a link that is easy to find.  I finally used the search command and found it.

All the buy/sell is in one place. Now that you've found it, it should not be an issue to find it again.

When you are 82 and have short term memory issues it is a big problem.  On paper I can visualize where something is, not so on a computer screen.
