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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

Advice needed, not airgun related sorry.

    Guys it’s a very long story but I will endeavour to miss the unimportant stuff out.

    4 years ago the brother in law turns up at my house with a motorbike and asks if he can put it in my garden. I didn't have a problem as he had no rear access to his and his was very small. Over the course of two years I had a further 4 motorbikes turn up to a point he purchased a shed to put in my garden to store them in. I'm ok with this so far. I had an argument with my sister (can't get into that, but I was not at fault) she demanded that the brother in law remove the bikes, I think she thought that I was getting some sort of riding pleasure from them (They were Harleys and Ducati's, I'm a Suzuki rider). In Feb last year they moved into a house with a similar sized garden to mine, so I asked him to remove his shed when he had time as I no longer want it in my garden, along with the stuff he has in there... I have asked him now many times to move it but he will not do anything about it...

    OK, here’s where I could do with some advice, How do I stand if I take the shed down and pile its contents and the shed in my garden, the contents will no longer be secure (contents includes a scooter and many replacement parts for it). I have given him 2 weeks to collect then I will call a scrap man in to remove it all... I have told him this already by text many times as he will not answer his phone to me... Am I wrong???? Will I be liable for its contents etc?

    I may not be able to respond to this thread straight away as I'm in work but I promise to "pop in" as often as possible.

    Awkward one but you could tell him he can pay storage at your house for the time they remain there and you will sell the items to recover the amount and give him the balance. Then even go as far as advertising them in free ads and show him the advert if he doesn't move them.

    Forgive my cynicism, but are they actually his? That`s a lot of money tied up in those bikes. It seems as if he`s lost interest in them now. Seems odd.

    As above but I believe you need to warn him twice!

    Once of your intention to remove the items and then again directly before you do it (giving him plenty of opportunity to act upon your request) send the letters recorded delivery and inform him he will liable for any clear up charges!

    Why not stop wasting time on forum advice. Drive round to the house, knock on the door and ask him directly.
    Quick way to get an answer. If this fails then load them up and drop them off.
    Its very easy to ignore texts and phone calls.

    Why should OP go to the hassle of handling heavy motorcycles and parts, using his fuel, time and energy? warn him and dump the crap in the street like I did with my ex-lodger... He soon collected his crap and I kept the Mondeo ST24 for my storage fees and inconvenience!

    I suggest putting all further correspondence in writing and keeping a copy, so you have a paper trail to back you up if it all goes breasts upwards.

    Thanks for everyones time responding to my dilemma, but this one I need to clear up.... I cannot and will not knock at my sisters door, if I did I would be arrested as we really do hate each other, and I would end up doing time. My brother in law on the other hand is an ok bloke, and although he is with my sister I do get on with him, I do feel however that this is the last straw. I am his only friend in Bristol as he is from Sutton Coalfield and I have shown him every kindness.... I do however wish I could hire a van, but seeing as I'm close to losing my house and keeping 3 lazy don't want to work kids, I can't stretch to the van hire... which is another reason I need him to pick his rubbish up.

    I suppose I was better not to ask on a forum... My apologies :eek::(

    I don't think you need to apologize for anything....if you can't ask for general advice about stuff in an off topic section then that would be pretty poor.

    Lots of people ask for non-airgun advice on this forum and get good instruction from doing so (apart from the odd comment).

    I hope the info/advice offered has helped you find a way forward and hope it all goes well.

    Yep, all good comments and all very reasonable advice and all what I feel like doing... Even Elk Hunters was good, I felt I just needed to explain my problem is bigger than just a shed. Again thanks all, good to have someone to bounce things off. A couple of friends who know about it offered to "send the boys round", I really don't want that, as much as I hate my sister, I would never do something like that.

    Sell them all as one job lot on ebay and then tell your brother in law that they were nicked.
