It sounds like they may want for you to register a gun for warranty using a serial number.

Some product manufacturers run their own websites and its only opened to their verified customers.

It could also be by invitation only from another member.

That is my humble guess. I haven't tried to join. I too have been a member of many forums and have lost count!

Yeah, I tried to get on there also, no one asked for serial #s or anything. I registered, tried to post, "insufficient privileges" or something like that, tried for about 2 weeks, gave up.

The Groucho Marx quote about clubs and their membership may be appropriate here......

Looks like a lame low traffic forum. Or am I missing something?

Lol... Same happened to me. Exact same response too! It made me chuckle. With just a little over 2000 members, and a crappy member screening, I dont anticipate they'll be around much longer.

I had no problem signing up just now.
Not a lot there, other than the off-topic threads.

Three or four heavy posters running the shows.

I joined and had no posting privileges. Several days later, I got an email saying I didn't meet their requirements. There seems to have been about ten posts in the last four months on the site.

The rejection letter (I haven't seen one yet) may be an automated feature
if no one manually approves the application.

Only one moderator? and he's not taking care of business?
