    Default Turd Alerts



    Due to an increase in rifle wanking, pimping, carnival barking, and turd mongering as of late, this is the index thread for turds. Ongoing auction Turd Alerts are fine, but if you call out a turd and it isn't one, you lose your Turd Alert posting privileges and get an unflattering avatar for 30 days. This is not for auction advertising disguised as discussion and for personal vetting, but for K98k public service to protect our new guys and the hobby.
    Notice to All: Calling out Humping - http://www.k98kforum.com/showthread....ng-out-Humping
    Requirements:
    (Note: these are REQUIREMENTS, not suggestions.)

    1) Do not post links to things we cannot control. Your link to an auction that may be gone in 30 days and clickbait pic hosting is a waste of time. Upload here please.
    2) DOCUMENT IT with pictures, screenshots, serial numbers, etc. Otherwise you've wasted your time and everyone commenting is pissing up a rope.
    3) Heading and body should include a description, e.g. "Humped Gew. 98 SS conv. 8311"(see below)
    4) Keep it business, no personal attacks, you're responsible for your words. As patterns build people can figure it out. If they aren't smart enough to figure things out like that then they can't be helped or don't want help.
    5) THIS NEEDS TO BE A GROUP EFFORT, PLEASE POST IN THE FORMAT YOU SEE AND I AND OTHER MODS WILL UPDATE THIS THREAD.

    This first Turd Alert is a good example to see how it started out well-intentioned but was rendered useless with the loss of the link, but saved by the posting of screen shots and pics.

    That's great MD, thanks. Putting together a Turd Index here, like the pic sticky.

    I thought this might be good for some of the newer members to run through. There's SO much wrong here you could be writing for a while. Some of the humps are a little better than the others. Some are awful.

    If you've been keeping up with recent Brokegunner actions and overpriced DOTs did you notice who won the helmet?

    Be interesting to see if it comes up for sale out of a 40 year old collection.

    This is just too weird. They had gone kind of cold and then went on a spending spree buying (IMHO way overpriced stuff every couple days) including 5 in a row from GunsRC. KungFlu madness?
