Staff,

I know this has been discussed before, but I really think we need our own forum over here on the Dark Side.

Keep it simple with no sub-forums....Posts should begin with either:

WTS (Want to Sell) "Item to be listed"
or
WTB (Want to Buy) "Item to be listed"

How about it????

I agree. An AK & related area in the EE would be a great alternative also.

I just came back from Equipment Exchange and didn't see the first category clearly labeled "AK" related items.....

I don't think we need subcategories....just one category called "AK" Items........

Okay then, under the Equipment Exchange, one category called:

"AK Rifles, Parts, and Accessories"

When I shop I don't necessarily look for any one particular item....I look for anything AK related.

I agree with Krinkfreak, we need something specifically for AKs.

I always thought this was a good idea. Thanks for bringing it up again!

We have asked for this before. I would like to see it HERE on a trial basis. There are several other places to post things if I really need to sell something. I would probably put it on both. There are some things I would like to give our fellow AK guys first shot at. If that dosen't work I could then move it to the AR side.

We could all go over to the other web site which is nearly exclusively AK. I'm a member there, too. I really have no interest in renewing that membership, I like it here, better. AKers just don't get the respect.
Link Posted: 10/17/2003 2:57:08 PM EDT
Agreed......we represent the "other side" of evil weapons. We have our own share of mags, accesoires etc etc.

And AK related E.E. is definitely wanted..

I'd also like to see it here with a listing on the AK Board.Remember the old saying;If you build it,they will come.
Link Posted: 10/17/2003 3:23:46 PM EDT
An AK related field in the EE might work now, since we actually have an AK dedicated forum.

"Back in the day", there was an AK section on the EE and there was very little traffic.

Last time I bitched about this subject, I got an ass chewing! Screw em, I got more ass than they have teeth!

I want an AK ONLY for sale forum!

I'm for it. As it is I tire of picking through AR uppers for sale for ten minutes to to find the occasional AK item.
Link Posted: 10/17/2003 10:34:09 PM EDT
I think that krinkfreak has a great idea! I also think that there should be a dealer forum on the EE. That would make it easier for the dealers and us.
Link Posted: 10/17/2003 10:47:53 PM EDT
Yes.

I need to do some AK buying right now!

I am on an AK capade!

That sounds pretty damn good to me.

Staff,

Let us know when the new "AK" Rifles, Parts, and Accessories forum is ready for business.....

I think the majority of us here on the Dark Side would prefer it be on the AK side of AR15.COM

If you need a moderator, let me know.

I believe this is another example of our commitment to AR15.COM to stay here instead of migrating to other gunboards. Long live the Dark Side.....

Thanks,

KF

Very well said!

I'm all for it. AK's don't belong in "rifles and shotguns", they belong in "AK rifles, AK parts, AK magazines, and AK related".
My 2cents.
Link Posted: 10/18/2003 6:14:53 PM EDT
I am dead against an AK only sale forum!!
I was broke enough when I just had an AR to accessorize, now that i own 2 AK variants, i cant afford any more stuff!!
just kidding, i thin it would be a great idea.

Im all for an ak marketplace. I get tired of wading thru posts and posts about poodle shooter stuff.
Link Posted: 10/18/2003 8:47:56 PM EDT
AK!...AK!...AK!...AK!...AK! (must be chanted while holding an AK in one hand over your head)
Link Posted: 10/18/2003 8:59:59 PM EDT
I'm all for it too.

We can call it The Red Square.
Link Posted: 10/19/2003 1:13:22 AM EDT
I volunteer to moderate it......together with Krinkfreak I think there's a good team for it then.
Link Posted: 10/19/2003 3:57:10 AM EDT
As a new member of the "Dark Side" I agree we need an AK, and AK Items for Sale area.
Link Posted: 10/19/2003 4:24:34 AM EDT
Right under the Rifle's n Shotgun section...

"AK's R US"

or

"Kalishnikov Korner"

or

"Atvomat's Auction"

There should also be a BOTD forum dedicated exclusively to idolatory worship of the lovely and talented Miss RSA.
Link Posted: 10/19/2003 6:18:51 AM EDT
We should keep the name simple and understandable for what it is. The original idea of "AK rifles, mags, parts, and accessories" says it all. Also people who are newbies from any other part of the web, who just stumble across it and are interested in an AK item will have no trouble knwing what it is. Not that I don't like the name "Red Square", but we want the largest exposure possible.

Finally, I now know where to look for the AK stuff. I hate going to the AK specific boards as I am not impressed with most and there seems to be more people on them that have less than desireable reputations.

I'm up for this. I just recently got bit by the AK bug, so It would be fun to have another place to go drool and blow money on stuff.
