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.

    thats the trouble especially in holdiay areas, if they can pin you into the resort and place it far away from anywhere else they charge you loads.

    the bar in the sailing holiday place charged you £4 for a beer:mad:
    and even more for a tin of cola:eek:

    We had a cracking day Thursday, we went to a wildlife park for £6.50 each and then to a carvery with all you can eat choice of 3 meats and 10 veg with all the trimmings for £7.00 quid each, real cheap day out, but you are right as Steve said our local zoo wanted £15.00 per head and some of the theme parks are really mega expensive. We went to the old Wembly once to see Colchester in a lower league cup final, it was £8.50 for a hotdog and a can of coke, scandalous. Heaven knows what it will cost to go to the 2012 olympics

    Silly little things seem to cost you massive amounts of money. Yesterday, my friend came round to my house on his bike (Honda CB900). He was showing me around it, & it had a strange rod-type thing linking the handle-bars to the body. It was to stop it rocking when it goes over bumps, but he said it was £250 :eek:. It just looked like one of those hydraulic things you have holding your car-boot up.

    Pellets cost a bomb now, this time last-year, in Euroguns AA Fields were £6.50 for 500. A couple of weeks back, I got charged £9.50 in Mooredges :eek:.

    Airfix kits which I like doing have gone up about £1 each, quite a lot when they used to be £3.95. In my local model shop, I used to buy a model & a paint for £5. You can't now or it means scrounging through your wallet for coins. I just get them from the internet now, the postage saves you bus-fare & dinner.

    We went to Flamingo Land on thursday- £82 for a family of four. It was so packed it was at least a 25 minute wait for each ride, so we only went on 3. The animals were crap aswell, so that's a lot of money wasted for just waiting in queues.

    I wanted to go to Eden Camp again. I love war & things, but last time my mum just raced through every hut with my little brother because he was moaning. £8 an Adult, £5 a kid, can't really go wrong. That was packed aswell becuase it was a rainy day- If it was sunny everyone would have went Flamingo Land.
