  1. Khrut27Gg, 4.6MB is too large of an image to upload, and the system will automatically reject it. It's many times larger than is necessary to nicely display a photo on a computer screen, and it would serve up very slowly. You know, like when you see the top of an image begin to download, but you give up wanting to wait to see it, because it takes much too long to download? The system is trying to prevent that. Please keep in mind that your audience has limited cellular or wifi bandwidth. If your photo were 100KB, instead of 4.6MB (about 46 times smaller), it would serve up very quickly, and almost no one would notice the difference in size or quality. You should at least reduce the size of the image you are attempting to upload by 50% or more. Resizing can be performed in Photoshop, or by using an app like iResize on a MAC. That's the app that I use. They can also be reduced if you have a phone, and forward the images to your own e-mail address. Depending upon your e-mail program, most of them automatically ask you how large of an image you want to send, usually presenting 3 or 4 size choices to enable more speedy and efficient processing.

  3. Hi Steve, You realize that we transitioned to a pay site, correct? You were provided a free year of posting ads when we transitioned to the new format in 2016, because you were an existing member on Machinegunboards.com. Your current rank of Corporal indicates you transitioned from Machinegunboards.com, but didn't purchase a rank subscription with market ad posting privileges when the free year was up. If you have attempted to post ads here, they were not rejected because of a ban...You just haven't subscribed. David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com
  4. Personal (Non-Commercial) Site Subscriptions

    The flag is based on your IP address when you first registered on the site, and is not user configurable, since it is a security feature. It's also not easily changed through the admin interface. I have to get my brother to update it through SQL when he has a chance. David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com
  5. Personal (Non-Commercial) Site Subscriptions

    Bob, They all expire at different times, and a renewal invoice is automatically sent about 2 to 3 weeks ahead of expiration. Yours expires 5/26/18. Thanks! David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com
  6. picture upload fail

    doctor_evil, We would need more information to troubleshoot. The most likely reason could be that you are attempting to upload gigantic images, greater that 4MB in size. David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com
  7. David,

               I am Rodney Stutes of Rodney's Distributors and it is time for one renewal. Will you be emailing renewal reminders out to to members or we just send payment to Sturmgewehr for our rank now.

    Thank you,

    Rodney Stutes

      Hi Rodney,

      The renewal for your account is in April...The system will automatically generate a renewal invoice to you...I believe it goes out 2-3 weeks ahead of the expiration.

      Thanks!

  9. m2 carbine kits ?s

    Here's an M2 summary that I wrote and posted on Machinegunboards, and the Carbine Club forum: There are many different M2 issues and types of NFA registered items. Here are the different iterations of M2 NFA variations/issues that contribute to the overall confusion on the subject: · "XD" serial numbered Inland M2 receivers that were never assembled as MG's (Contraband, unless registered during 1968 Amnesty) (There are also some other "X" prefixed M2's) · Originally marked M2's from Inland, and a potential few from Winchester (C&R) · M1 Receivers that were over-stamped "M2" at the factory, such as Winchester M2's (Should be C&R, but "muddy") · Various non-original M2 manufacturer M1's that have been overstamped "M2" as part of their non-original conversion (IBM, Rock-Ola, Saginaw, etc.) (Transferable, non-C&R) · Original manufacturer M1's (Inland and Winchester) that were overstamped "M2" as part of their non-original conversion (Circa1986 conversions in prep for Hughes Amendment) (Transferable, non-C&R) · 7-piece M2 parts sets, with serial numbers on various of the seven parts (Transferable, non-C&R) (Any one of the 7 parts has to be marked) · Registered trigger packs (Transferable, non-C&R) · Registered M2 slides (Transferable, non-C&R) · Universal, Plainfield, and Iver Johnson manufactured, commercial M2 Carbines (Transferable, Some will soon be C&R) · Other commercial manufacturer M1 Carbines that were converted, some of which were overstamped "M2," and some that were not (Transferable, non-C&R) · Pre-May 1986 Dealer Samples (Not transferable, not C&R) · Post-May 1986 Dealer Samples (Not transferable, not C&R) Thanks!

  11. Good Afternoon Mr. Albert:

               My Name is Randolph A. Crawford. Due to financial issues, I am trying to list a class III Weapon for sale. I read the post concerning commercial posts. What will it cost for one individual to post one gun. In addition what format do you wish that I use?

               If need be, you can e-mail me at: rcrawford12@cox.net. Thank-you,

                                  Randolph A. Crawford

     

  12. Hey David,

    I just signed up to sell online.  I didn't realize that I should have signed up as a commercial user and signed up as an individual.  Can I sign up as commercial and get credited for my individual payment?  I just did this today.  Thanks Andy

  14. MY for sale payment

    Ron, My apologies. I thought I had already updated your account. I'm doing it now. Again, my apologies. You should be able to post in a few minutes. David Albert
  15. HOW TO SELL?

    DFT, We converted from the free site to a pay site after almost 17 years of maintaining it for free. You will need to choose a membership to post ads in the market boards. Here are the details: You will need to go the site store to purchase the appropriate subscription for the types of ads you wish to place over the next 12 months. For personal subscriptions, there are 2 options, and for commercial subscriptions, there are many options. You should also read through the rules, which contain all the details associated with each rank. Here are the links: Rules: http://www.sturmgewehr.com/forums/index.php?/guidelines/ Personal: http://www.sturmgewehr.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/1-personal-site-subscriptions/ Commercial: http://www.sturmgewehr.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/2-commercial-site-subscriptions/ Just let us know if you have any questions. Thanks! David Albert
