I do more house cleaning in the Mosin forum then the other four forum sections I run here at SRF. :doh:
So this post is to help you post you topics in the correct section and what happens when you don't.

First off this is a Collector's forum for collector topics. We have a few sections on the forum for non collector topics.
The Mosin forum has 7 sections.

#1 Rifles
This is where you post about rifles (collector topics)
#2 Carbines
This is where you post about Carbines (collector topics)
#3 Accurizing the Mosin Nagant
This is where you talk about the things you do to your rifle to make it shoot better. These topics can go outside the collector scope, but not too far.
#4 Snipers & Restoring Ex-Snipers
This is where you post about your snipers, original or repros (must stay within collector topics)
#5 Finnish Rifles/Carbines all Models
This is where you post anything Finn. This can even cover rifles other then Mosins.
#6 Russian/Finnish Reference Stickies
This it where Reference Stickies go. It is not for new topics, only the ones that are stickies. If you wish to put together a topic for this section, contact me.
#7 New Topics
This section is listed below the other topics. This is where all general questions go.
If you want to post about sporters or making a sporter we have a section on the forum for that. Don't post them in the Mosin forum. They will be moved.
viewforum.php?f=82

If you do post in the wrong section, it will be moved to the correction section. When I do move a topic, I try to send a PM to the OP to let him know that the topic has been moved.
Be polite in your posting.

But what if I have a carbine that used to be a rifle like a 91/59 or a cut-down M38!!!!???

I think we need clearer sections :^o

Actually, Candyman, the labels are pretty clear. I don't know what's so difficult about it.

What about my 9130 in a M38 stock, with finnish marks and a hungarian butt plate? Refurbed 1989? You should see the scope!

The scope is supposed to go on _top_ of the gun.

You would post it here.
viewforum.php?f=82
I move 5 to 10 post a week so, it seems that some members do get a little confused as to where to post.
I'm glad that y'all are having a little fun with this post. I didn't make it to come down on anyone, just to help those that have a little trouble or, are just new to Mosins.

While you're housecleaning- can you PLEASE move the "Some Finnish M91 History" sticky out of the carbine section :D :thumb:

That distracts me every time I see it! :lol:

Done.
This also helps. If you see a Mosin topic in the wrong section, send me a PM with a link to the post and I will move it to the proper section.

Personally, I believe they should all be combined in the parent forum. The fact that you are doing more house cleaning here than any other forum supports this.

Reference stickies, Accurizing and Snipers may be the best exceptions.

Just my 2¢
