Years ago, the trading post looked like a regular forum, then came the new-ebay-looking thing with photos, sections and ... very confusing. Now that seems to be gone (?)

Please fill me in, what is the current trading post, and how do I get to it?

Sorry, I know this is likely obvious to everyone but me.

Ah, okay, so the "New Trading Post" that was set up a couple of years ago with the pictures and everything isn't there anymore, and we're back to the old system now?

Yes we had a lot of complaints about the new one so we changed the system again

OK, I'm confused. Are only certain members allowed to go there? I clicked on the link and was told I was unauthorized. what the heck is that about?

One has to have at least 50 posts and 60 days of membership to have access to certain forums, Parents as Partners, Talk Amongst Ourselves and the Trading Post.

Do you get some sort of access if you have a paid subscription to the snail mail version of the magazine? Or a reduced fee?

I tried to post in the ISO area....I'm not looking to sell, and I was told I wasn't authorized either. I definitely have the other requirements.
