I hope this isn't inappropriate to post this here. I've got my first FAL coming in next week and I'm very excited about it. It's an 18" DSA Para. I'm looking to buy some miscellaneous accessories for it. I registered on falfiles.com over a week ago with the same user name as here. I still can't respond to a post in their market place or IM any users. Does anybody have a contact for a moderator over there? I've sent two messages through the contact button, but I've received no response.

Don't waste your time I am in the same boat over six months for me now and still can't post or reply. I sent messages to the moderator and all who I thought could help and still nothing. I stopped going there since .

Been a member there for quite a few years, that seems really odd. Any chance their site response went to your junk mail? Most over there are really good people including staff. Give them another try. I'll see if I can get staff to contact you by sending them this thread.

I appreciate it. I'm certain nothing went to my junk mail. I used my work email address. It's my company and if the number of erectile dysfunction ads I get in my inbox is any indicator on how my spam settings are, I should be able to get an email from falfiles.

I even tried to register again about a week after the initial try with my home email address and a different user name. It didn't work either. I'm hoping to get signed up to buy some things off the marketplace and ask a few questions. I've got a FAL coming that's supposed to be at my FFL tomorrow. I don't know much about the platform, I've never even held one.

Message sent off to one person I know is on there a lot. Hope he can help you both out.

Thanks Jason for your help...I hope they square me away there, I have missed a bunch of great marketplace deals.

FAL Files remains the best place on the web for knowledge about the FAL, hands down. Hope you guys get squared away.

Did you get an email to activate your account, or was it just activated for you. I haven't gotten anything yet.
Link Posted: 2/20/2015 8:47:56 PM EST
I provided my email to Jason who in turn gave it to the contact person he knows over there. All I did was test my access by posting a reply to one of the posts to see if it would work and it. So now everything functions for me.

I tried to register today, and all i get is a database error message.
I tried to send an email to the (contact them) link at jen@falfiles.com and it comes back as--- A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

jen@falfiles.com---
What gives?

Admin of the files happens slowly. Be very patient and/or ask somebody you know for help pushing your application through.

I still haven't been able to fully register yet. It's been about a month.
Link Posted: 3/6/2015 2:59:17 AM EST
Jen doesn't really answer any more...if anyone wants, I can forward a heads up request to the big cheez there. I think he runs the new member OK's about once ever week or two....

I would certainly appreciate it. I just got my first FAL a couple of weeks ago. I'd like to buy some stuff off the market place there but I can't post or message any users. The user name I signed up with over there is my username here.
Link Posted: 3/6/2015 5:48:38 PM EST
Done. You'll probably receive a message direct, but if not I'll let you know via pm.
Link Posted: 3/7/2015 12:05:17 AM EST
I forgotten my password but no way to change it with the database error.

Hey gents I am in the same boat. I registered about a month ago and still cant get in. Any help?

Put your time in. The FAL files is pretty good about screening out bots and trouble makers. If you have a meaningfull post to offer yours may get posted but otherwise, search tools may find you a good answer to your questions.

I get that you really need to wait to get approved on there, but you can't post anything until you are approved.

ETA: waiting myself.

I suppose, but how many years was DABTL allowed to troll and make trouble. he was a big part of the reason I stopped going over there, he was allowed to lie and get away with things that a small poster like me would have been banned for. I lost track of how many times he was either banned or said he was going and not coming back. not sure what his status is now, but he ruined that site for me. well that and I sold off my L1A1

I believe it is a prerequisite that you must a be a cranky old bastard to join.

I bailed on that forum a while ago.

I just checked mine as well... it has been a few years since I last logged in:

since your last visit February 06, 2009


I remember back in the day, it also took me a while to get the account activated. Great place (at least back then) and welcome to the new members

It's still a great resource, and the best place to find any sort of uncommon FAL part. Unfortunately, some of the older (and highly informational) threads don't exist anymore and of those that do, many lack the pictures that helped make them informational.

that dumbass was finally permabanned a couple of years ago, from what I remember. He's never appeared again. No frickin' loss, either.

Him being allowed to be an asshole by managment is the main reason the site went to shit like it did.
