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 (?)<br><br>
Please fill me in, what is the current trading post, and how do I get to it?<br><br>
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?

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?

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.
