A word about access to the boards here at SKS-Files. 85% of the boards here are accessible either as an unregistered guest, or as a Newber. The remaining portions of the boards are based on member groups:
The Buy/Sell/Trade forum with Firearms For Sale, Gun Parts & Accessories For Sale, Miscellaneous For Sale, and Want To Buy sub-boards is viewable to all users. The Want to Buy sub-board is post-able at any level. Users may post in any of the the other Buy/Sell/Trade sub-boards at attaining member group Cadet.
The Clubhouse forum, with the Members Lounge, Good Deals, Free Items, Militaria, and Humor sub-boards opens at attaining member group Rifleman to everyone.
All Serial Data Forums (there is some type of serial data board for each SKS flavor) are open for both viewing and posting at attaining member group Rifleman.
Board Contributor status is a special title given to supporters of SKS-Files via donation/subscription regardless of member group. This opens the entire Clubhouse board with some neat topics that are not available to the general public.
This access also includes the Politics and Religion (P&R) section of SKS-Files. The P&R section will have additional rules/guidelines and all related topics MUST stay in this section. If you wish to opt-out of the P&R section at any time, simply contact an administrator and we will take it off without loss of access to the Clubhouse.
