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.

    I see both sides. During lockdown wouldn't expect to get a anything in the post or expect someone to go out unnecessarily to post an item.

    That said there are going be many people financially affected by this and hobby stuff will sadly be first thing sold if guys need the cash.

    Tricky one needs people be sensible about it i guess.

    Also with respect mate but in the current situation there are going to be a lot of people running short of cash, selling a rifle may be the only way they can afford to buy essentials.

    Ditto - and theres always a small queue in a small room. My wife told me I wasnt to go posting ebay sales - which I agree with. If people really want some old Corgi cars desperately they can ask for collection and I'll leave them outside!

    The economic situation for some is dire, no doubt. I appreciate that. However, (and I am not being flippant) death is worse than transient hardship.

    I made a deal on another forum,it was a trade of fishing tackle.The rods are to long to post so I was going to collect in Sussex.Sadly that’s now out of the question.We have both agreed that we will honour the trade as soon as possible.
    Best we can do for now.

    We do not unfortunately know just how transient this hardship is going to be, some people work for minimum wage and have little or no savings, if those people are now not allowed to work where is the money coming from? The government say they will pay 'up to' 80% of the average weekly wage but when will this happen? I'm sure landlords will still want their rent money, gas/electricity etc still have to be bought. This week I have sold a couple of items on ebay for a friend in this situation and sent them via courier drop off shop, the money means that she is able to buy groceries for the next couple of weeks, apart of course for those items which are not available due to stockpiling by people with the wherewithal to do so.

    The government financial assistance was being discussed in the house of commons today. Boj and JC actually agreed on all and haste is being made.
    I know my sister in law has had her rent reduced.
    I am awaiting news from my agent ref our tenant about rent reduction. I have no problem with reduction. Whether the arrears is made up by the government I don't know. I would rather our tenant could afford to buy food rather than worry about a rent bill.

    Nail on head, enjoyed reading some posts on here today from people who are in clear breach of the lockdown rules. :facepalm:

    My opinion of those posters has changed.

    Oh dear, here we go again :facepalm:

    The virus can only live for a couple of hours outside the host and this is on hard surfaces such as stainless steel & hard plastics.

    It won't still be alive on the cardboard having travelled through the delivery system.

    Biggest risk is immediately after being handled so leave the parcel on your door step for 3 hours after its been dropped. If you live in Louth it might be a good idea to stand over the parcel during this time :)

    And there is also research suggesting 24 hours to 9 days on certain surfaces.

    The advice on virus life has not changed or bee disproved at any time that I'm aware of.
    Do you have evidence that this is recognised research from a recognised source?
