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.

  4. Hotmail block emails from us entering your inbox. Unless you can setup a safe sender you will not get activation emails from the forum. Please use an alternative provider or complain to Hotmail.

  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.

    There is no doubting the support from the rest of the mods, the feedback is superb. I wish more of them could come along, that'd be great for the members.

    I know one mod has actively campaigned against us promoting the raffles for instance.
    'A few years ago' that was then, what has it to do with this or even last years event.
    Seems to me you some sort of chip on your shoulder that has taken me buy complete surprise.

    Wouldn't say chip Terry, mild surprise at the complete lack of support from the Admin. Events like these keep the community together so in the end the forum benefits as does the donations.

    I’m completely non-plussed by this thread chaps. Mick wants to have a meet just for forum members but doesn’t want to use the AGF name.
    What is a collection of AGF forum members then? What is this forum if not a collection of members with a common interest?
    This raffle that was opposed by one moderator went ahead I take it?
    So one moderator, who, by the way, is also a member as we all are, expressed an opinion which wasn’t adhered to. Big whoop.
    I don’t get this ‘them and us’ attitude Mick. We’re all members.

    I am not over the moon promoting the AGF name where the owners contribute zero to the event and never have, not even a thanks or a well done and not even a lane sponsorship in the last few years.

    No, the raffle (online) didn't go ahead as he kicked up a stink. It was adhered to Chris, some time before you became a mod. You refer to the them & us Chris which as you can see, I single out one mod so please don't throw that at me.

    OK, I didn’t know that but as you say, it’s a while ago.
    I would argue that the owners, far from contributing nothing, make the whole thing possible by keeping the forum up and running. Most of us wouldn’t even know each other if we weren’t on here.
    @john79 , mods, like other members, have lives away from this forum and it’s meets. If we can’t go, for whatever reason, we can’t go. As for lane sponsoring by the mods, what about lane sponsoring by any of the members?

    The members make it possible Chris through donations. It isn't done out of the love for the community.

    Well done us guy's...:thumb:

    I guess the point i'm trying to make is there always seems to be an excess of money donated to fund the forum (every month)...i'd like to think it goes to serve some purpose...charity...or could go to the forum meet..?

    Exactly Mick. The members of the forum pay for the maintenance. But the owner puts in the work. Us mods do our best to keep it running smooth.
    We are a community and I struggle to see why a community who gladly uses the forum and donates to it’s upkeep would want to dissociate itself from the name of it’s community.
    @norman, as far as I’m aware the donations are used for the upkeep and maintenance of the forum. I have no knowledge of the details or the cost.
