    You can PM any MOD or VET. We all have the ability to verify sources. Here are some things to keep in mind when asking for a source check:

    1. It's a good idea to PM more than one MOD or VET (2 or 3) to ensure that you get more than one pair of eyes on the check. A while ago we had a terrible situation with someone who abused his power to scam people, so stay safe by asking more than one. You don't need to go overboard by asking more than 3 MODs or VETs...2 or 3 will be enough.

    2. A legit source will be in the form of a secure email address: xxx@xxx.com. Secure addresses are from places like ziplip or cyber-rights. A good source will generally not use public addresses like Yahoo, AOL or Hotmail.

    3. You need to supply the full email address of the person you wish to check. Why? Because let's say there's a legit source nick named "Mickey." Let's say his real email address is Mickey245@xxx.xxx (this is not a real source). A smart scammer will use the name Mickey235@xxx.xxx and still be called "Mickey." So if you want a source check, send the FULL email address.

    4. If someone gives you a source then tells you not to check with anyone else or tells you only to check with people they tell you to contact, then beware--that source might be a scammer. ALWAYS chceck your sources with MODs and/or VETs. You choose what MODs and VETs to use. Pick MODs and VETs who you have gotten to know or who you feel comfortable approaching.

    If you decide to contact me for a source check please find and send email addresses, not websites. I do not give out names of sources, but I will verify them for you (as described above).

    That don't mean that he wasn't on here for 2 years doing nothing but reading and learning up. Don't matter if you have 1post or 2000posts. That should not have anything to do with it.

    Jstanz like Bask8kace said make sure you check a couple of mods.

    Good luck.

    I agree, It seems like there is always one who semi-flames a newbie for stuff like this. What in the fck is this forum for! No one on here has the slightest clue how much another knows about gear or anything else for that matter. All we see is typed letters on a computer screen, we have nothing else to base our judgement of a persons knowledge about gear and there is always one who wants to take the holyier-than-thou attitude. When in fact his first post was probably an open-post source request! If this does not apply forget about it, if it does then f--king change.

    I had exactly 7 posts here when I became a mod....

    (No...I'm not kidding)

    I think Billy Bathgate had roughly the same as me when he became a mod, also.

    Post count isn't a good indicator of knowledge. In fact...quite often...it seems that there's an inverse relationship between the two...

    Have I mentioned Rickson? You may want to PM him ....



    (Honestly, I only know a limited # of sources, and I deal with 2 or 3...so I'm the worst mod to ask questions about them...or do source checks with)
