Board Rank and Membership Levels

Various membership levels are represented by ranks.

Non-Commercial

  • Seaman – Can post to the discussion boards, and respond to ads, but cannot create new ads, have storage for only 50 IMs, and no image hosting. During the board introduction, Seaman will be allowed to post ads for a limited period, after which they will need to upgrade their account to a Sergeant level or higher.
     
  • Corporal – Members who came to this site from our sister site, machinegunboards.com; have the benefits of the Seaman level, plus they can post non-commercial ads to the Buy/Sell forums. Corporals have storage for 100 IMs, but have no image hosting abilities as part of the sturmgewehr.com galleries. After the first year, the Corporal rank will lose it’s ability to post ads, and will need to upgrade to a Sergeant level to do so.
     
  • Sergeant –  have the benefits of the Seaman level, plus they can post non-commercial ads to the Buy/Sell forums. Sergeants have storage for 223 IMs, but have no image hosting abilities as part of the sturmgewehr.com galleries. 
     
  • Lieutenant – Adds the ability to have a custom Avatar, 556 IMs, and the ability to host images at time of posting and in the sturmgewehr.com galleries, to aid in the posting of ads.

     

Commercial

 

  • Captain – Allows for commercial level posting of up to 5 ads a year, plus 5 gallery images. Users have the same privileges that have Sergeants in other respects. This is the equivalent of a National Guard commission, and is designed for the dealer who only needs a few ads a year.
     
  • Major - Allows for commercial level posting of up to 10 ads a year, and attaching images to their ads. Users have the same privileges that Sergeants have in other respects.

Posting on Buy/Sell Boards

 

  • Sturmgewehr.com allows individuals and commercial entities alike to post to the Buy/Sell boards.  We ask that all commercial users (those who sell the same item in large quantities, operate under a business name, selling for profit, or possessing an FFL, etc) upgrade their accounts to a commercial account. This can be done by emailing site@sturmgewehr.com or by going to the Sturmgewehr.com Store .  During the transition period to the new board format, we will offer a grace period for commercial and non-commercial users to become familiar with the new format, after which users will be encouraged to upgrade to the account level that suits their needs.
     
  • Post as many items as you wish within your designated ranks abilities, but please limit non-commercial posts to 4 on the 1st page of each section at any given time, and for commercial users 8 ads on the 1st page (4 Star Generals and Admirals are asked to use their best judgment as officers, and not carpet bomb the boards, but they have operational authority to post as many ads as necessary).
     
  • There are no limitations to the number of images that you post per ad, or the size, but please be realistic in the abilities of the audience you are trying to reach in terms of bandwidth and screen size.
     
  • Feel free to consolidate multiple items into one ad (especially for commercial members – it will conserve your post count).
     
  • All posts should contain very accurate description(s) of the item(s) for sale, what city and state the item is located in, as well as the terms of the sale.
     
  • All posts should contain the price of the item being sold within the ad text – placing the price in the title is optional.
     
  • Do not post the same item in multiple market forums.
     
  • The use of tags in the subject of an ad is reserved for Captain and above.
     
  • When posting items, if you are not prepared to ship or deliver the item in a timely fashion, please do not post that item here. If you are unable to respond to emails, please also do not post here. The same applies to buyers; if you are unable to arrange for payment with a seller in a timely fashion, please do not begin a purchase you might not be able to complete.  Do not list items for sale that you do not have in your immediate possession, and/or to which you do not legally own title. 

  • Please do not flame or comment on pricing... If the price is too high, then don't buy it.
     
  • Do not delete text within the ad; this information is valuable to others in helping gauge the market, instead update your ad with sold or strike through your price in addition to sold.
     
  • Please do not link ads to auction sites.  Ads that are posted in parallel to, or are used to promote, drive traffic to, or result in a buyer conducting transactions on an auction site for items advertised on Sturmgewehr.com are not allowed.  
     
  • Sturmgewehr.com administrators reserve the right to remove any post that they see as inappropriate, suspect, or illegal or otherwise not in the best interest of the boards.
     
  • Sturmgewehr.com administrators reserve the right to ban, cancel, or otherwise restrict user accounts based on their actions, as deemed necessary for the good of the community.
