joining the AKfiles forum

16 days and counting and I still can't post anything and worst yet buy anything in the marketplace. They need to change the header that says joining can take up to 7 days.

Seem to recall some deal that Jen personally approves the applicants over there now and does it in blocks when she has the time to do so.

The AK side of the Files is ran a bit differently than here
Different rules, things that will get you an immediate time out there are largely tolerated to an extant there
Tons of Bans are handed out, large numbers of the banned just re register, Jen is likely just attempting to trim down a bit on that or maybe is just busy with her real life.

Just be patient, it will happen

There is also the AKforum however that can get seriously anal

multiple emails sent, 7 more days and STILL NOTHING.
Maybe it's supposed to say 7 weeks, 7 months, 7 years or 7 decades. It most certainly isn't 7 days.

I registered on the 11th and I finally have been approved, so it takes a while.

Be careful over there. You might get some weird disease from the Left Arm of the Commie World forum

Never mind fake news, took for ever to log on, posted 1 post, then nothing. Can't log on today. Does that forum really run this way, I mean it seems to be a joke. I'm wondering if it's worth all this trouble. The fold stock I wanted to buy when I first tried joining, well the guy had a crap load of them and now he's down to 2 and those will most likely sell today.

I try to limit my visits there to the Marketplace. A lot more stuff posted for sale there than here.

It's a good way to stay out of trouble.

Well after much screwing around, when I go to the forum and sign in I have to click FAQ and my profile comes up.

I've been on there a while & didn't have a problem when I joined or ever. There is almost always folding stocks on there so I wouldn't sweat that part.

On a side note I didn't know that Jen ran this site too, but I'm not a keyboard warrior either...I'd rather be hunting or plinking

Never bothered to join, enough AK knowledge here for me as I mostly leave them in their original cosmoline and store the boxes somewhere dry. Much rather shoot SKS's than AK's. Wife is same way. We generally roll with 'Merican Made but lobbing cast from our SKS's is cheap and fun. AK's are mostly investment rifles for me and been good for that since was buying when new were $129 and used $99.

Same here. I, however tried to joint the AK Files once - I wanted to buy some AK parts - but failed at the captcha step. I never could get the captcha right. I gave it up after that.

I like AK Files. It's a good forum with a slightly different set of geezers camping it.

I tried to be on Reddit, but it's too confusing and I can't find anything.

AKfiles does not allow photos hosted from Postimg. When you try to post images hosted there, the URLs get zapped. I don't go to AKfiles any longer.
