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 was in airgunbb’s yesterday and i noticed a guy got the banned before he knew what hit him.
    I followed the post and nothing was said that was bad...eg bad language.
    All the guy said that he had a bad experience with MTC optics that he bought and all hell broke lose.I couldn’t believe . The minute the AKSS(the guy that go banned) posted there was another 2-3 guys answering with a minute of his posts.
    His posts were all removed unfortunately right after he got banned. It is obvious that there is a lot of business going on in there and it is well protected by the moderators and salesmen that hang around in there.
    I have been a member there for 3 years and post about 20 posts.
    There is another couple of post about banning in there which means there is a lot of guys getting the banned, especially when you say something that they do not like.
    What a bunch of A-HOLES

    From what I've heard about that lot, they'll ban anyone who disagrees with them. Wether they have a valid point or not.

    Eg, the mods like .177" and someone comes on preaching about .22", as soon as he puts his argument forward... banned.

    To the first post: I was banned there about a year ago, can't remember the exact reason but it was as pathetic as what you told us about, you say one thing outta-line and they ban you and delete your posts. Waste of time, I never tried going back easy as it is (sometimes, depending on whether they banned your ip address)

    This forum is much more user friendly :up:

    By the way Leeman, I'm banning you for having an opinion ok? :D

    If you read the stickys in their sales section, you will see that posting anything that may harm a sale results in a ban, with zero tolerance!

    Pretty stiff I know, and it catches a lot of people out, but I can see why... Maybe it would be less drastic to give a yellow card for a first offence!

    I hate it when you point out you can get the same item brand new for the price stated & you still get an infringement for interfering with the sale.
