ASRA - Australian Skateboard Racing Association

Due to popular demand, the marketplace forum has been replaced with a new marketplace that is not a forum but a purpose-built place for buying and selling.

The old marketplace forum is still there, and people can still respond to the old discussions there, but new ads should be placed on the new marketplace

There's a "Marketplace" link in the horizontal menu at the top of the page, and a box in the right-most column showing the last 10 ads.

The new marketplace has a few bugs, but we hope to iron them out over the coming weeks. Let us know what you think.

I mean like people have email accounts that they sign everything up to and never check then use a different email for personal stuff. I guess you could just change it so the emails from here goes to the one you read... Haha nah but over all its a great idea... I used to always be in the marketplace now i almost never open it. Was that the whole point of making a new one? To keep annoying smelly grommets out haha

The new marketplace is less "social" than the old one. That doesn't suit some people, but in my opinion it's already greatly improved the site. It's actually possible to talk about skateboarding again without your thread disappearing off the end of the Latest Activity in minutes due to a tsunami of WTS and WTB.

Cents, I don't think sellers will have to answer the same questions over again, and if they do it'll only be because they didn't include necessary information in their ad.

Connor, as for email being inconvenient because people's inboxes are swamped...stop subscribing to millions of emails from ASRA/Facebook etc., and if you want all those emails, use email filters to organise your inbox.

Jordan, so far a couple of people say they haven't been able to receive emails from the marketplace - I have no idea why at this stage.

Also to everyone who didnt get the emails check in the junk folder... Thats where mine came to

If you want to be really smart just make a new email specifically for dealing with ASRA stuff.
Point of it was to keep the forums free of trades so they could be used for actual discussion again without WTS and WTB ads being bumped and pushing down any real topics of discussion to the bottom of the page.

yeah it wont send me an email either :( 

ive done it a few times on different emails to no avail 

please help i need to sell my avenger 

Love the new market place bugs, So organsied, Like a skating ebay.

 Its most likely your email client or account junking it. Pat was trying to list 3 different items yesterday and could not get an email. He then changed the email on the listing to my email address and presto they arrive immediately. I confirmed the items for him than he just edited his email back in to the listing. He was using a Hotmail account where as mine is a paid fastmail account.

It works fine on the iphone. Like a lot of features of the website to use them on an iphone or any other mobile device for that matter you need to view the normal website rather than the moblie version. You can do this by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page that says "view regular version of this page". The default moblie version only allows you the access the Latest activity, My page, Members, and Forum. To access everything else you need to view the page as the normal version, not the mobile version.
