1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    I have seen a few rifles sell on a couple of forums where the adverts are basically two lines of description and half of that is a brief description of the rifle and a phone number.
    Maybe some of us are trying to hard to get a sale and instead of fancy pictures etc we just need a line or two of text with a brief description and we would be guaranteed a sale!

    Cloverleafs adverts are top notch, I would buy a gun from him anytime based on the honest and accurate information he imparts and the close up pictures he utilizes!

    No doubt one day I will buy from him and without hesitation or uncertainty! :up:

    Agree with the above.. if you have somthing to sell (especially somthing of high value) what you want someone to part with there hard earned for, you have got to "sell it" so to speak.. and I don't just mean the good points.. give us an honest opinion on condition as well as ALL relevant information to the item for sale.. This way your ensuring that the buyer will have no come backs and be happy with there purchase and you get yourself a +1 for being a good honest seller. :up:

    There are so many muppets who try and sell without photo's or good descriptions. There are equally as many turds who think they can buy your pristene, cared for example for the price of a chinese junk tat gun. Absolute muppets.

    I always try to give a detailed honest description but some folk just don't seem to be able to.
    Just bought a gun off another forum. Seller said "it's in good condition and shoots well"
    As I was buying FTF I thought I would give it a go. Damn things absolutely mint, not a mark and the trigger has been professionally fettled.

    Owned the rifle for 10 months, no leeks, accurate and in exerlent condition. Not getting used so time to move it on. Face 2 face or post at buyers cost.

    You have been given the option to see the item before you buy, plus even the smartest ad (no disrespect to cloverleaf) can be a con.
