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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:


    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. 

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

    Dismiss Notice
    You are breaking the forum rules if there is no comment on a sales or wanted thread by either the buyer or seller. 
    Or regarding to members manufacturing things stating something is going to be discussed and initiated through pm.
    A buyer in manufactured section hi I’m interested in some work by you pm incoming.
    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.
    Dismiss Notice
  5. 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.
    Hotmail addresses include.

    Dismiss Notice
  6. 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.

    Do not make any username that has a swear word, racist or would be considered rude and offensive. You will be automatically banned if you do this.

    Multiple Accounts.
    You may not make multiple accounts, if you do all your accounts may be banned.

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, slander or deliberate insults/name-calling, or 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.

    Do not Post the same topic in multiple forums.
    If you are unsure of which forum a thread should go under, just state that in your post, and a moderator will move the thread to the correct forum.
    Multiple posts are unnecessary and will be deleted.

    Stay On Topic
    Topics and discussions shall be placed in the most appropriate forum and shall be relevant to the purpose of this forum. Threads started in the wrong forum will be moved (with or without notice) and off-topic threads or otherwise useless threads will be deleted or moved.
    Posts in the Airgun section must remain on topic, any off topic post will be removed without warning.

    Mobile sms type text: Do not type your posts in text speak, please use English words we can all understand.

    Quoting Images/Videos: Do not quote people with images or videos in their post. Edit them out of your quote.

    Quoting Long Posts: Quoting a whole guide or extremely long posts in your post and then commenting on it is just pointless and a waste of space. If there is a certain part of the quote you would like to refer to while comment, quote the original quote and then delete the parts that are not important that you are not referring to.

    Short Posts: Try to avoid one or two word posts.

    Do not post the same question multiple times in multiple threads in the same forum.
    If no one responds to your question or request, just post a reply to the same message thread again to bring the message to the top of the list so that other forum users notice it.
    Even though this is an international forum, please make sure that your posts are written in English.

    Only posts pictures of dead animals in the hunting section, then those who don't wish to see them won't have to while reading general airgun topics.

    You must update your thread on a regular basis, if it's still for sale please keep other members informed by adding a post to your thread. Once sold make a post stating that your item is now sold then admin will update your thread to include (SOLD) in the title.

    (Deleting/Editing threads)
