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.

  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.

    Those who know me know I'm the proud (and very protective) father of 2 girls, my eldest daughter was born 2 weeks after my mum died after suffering horrifically for around 12 years. For this reason I've always been very close to my eldest daughter as I found that such a helpless little bundle of wrinkly skin subdued and numbed the feelings of hate and resentment in my head!
    As my daughters grown she has the look of my mum, maybe it's just me that sees it, and we've had a wonderful time doing lots of daft things together, shooting, driving trucks at my work and bulldozers and loading shovels at my dad's work plus lots of girly things with me looking like a barbie doll!!!!
    My other little girl is equally loved and we've also had some magical times but for the moment she isn't relevant to this as she's not old enough just yet!!
    Anyway I thought I'd give a little background before I say what happened today......

    I read the little one a story as usual at bedtime and then kisses and snuggles all tucked in, then went upstairs to tuck my eldest in, she was watching a DVD in bed so I jumped into bed with her as we used to do and to my utter shock she said the fateful words that I've been assured I would one day hear her say.... I don't need you to sleep with me anymore, she's too old and it's a bit babyish and she felt embarrassed!!!!!!
    I honestly felt like I'd been kicked in the stomach, really knocked the wind out of my sails.....

    She will always be your little girl mine is 16 now and always blows me a kiss and tells me she loves me tells me about her day shows me all her new clothes talks guns knifes and war with me. You will find she turns away from things you did and talked about together. But it will be to move onto the next thing you do together. Enjoy every stage of you daughters life's no matter what they do they will always be daddy's little princess.

    she's still your girl jay, and she'll still love you as much, just that she'll show it differently as she matures. in fact, she'll love you even more, because as she gets older, she will see and appreciate all you do as a parent.
