MMA Web Forum:
Our web forum has been experiencing problems for the past few months. The forum provider has not been responsive to our issues so I have created a new forum with a different provider. There are a number of improvements in functionality and I hope stability.
Unfortunately I am not able to save and bring across the existing posts and user ids. You will need to register and create a new userid to be able to post messages. You do not need to be a MMA member to register.
The New MMA Forums have four forum categories:
- Lounge - Posts discussing topics of interest to the Manitoba Mopar Community
- Events - Posts relevant to events of interest to the Manitoba Mopar Community
- For Sale - Car/Parts/Services for sale
- Wanted - Car/Parts/Services wanted
Note: There is no private forum category for MMA members only. It was not used much on the old forum and administering user privileges became a significant effort.
