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.

  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.

    Most of our recycling has been shipped abroad to countries like Malaysia, so not only is it polluting another Country it’s also creating a pollution trial while being shipped. Absolutely disgusting, I take zero notice of anything my local council puts out about recycling now.

    Too bloody right. They only collect the steel and aluminium cans to sell for scrap. And the big question is...
    How can an employee of mine tell me what to do and fine me? Don't I pay their salaries?
    It makes my blood boil. They try to convince us that they're there for the greater good, then take back handers on land deals, look up Cheshire East for scandals galore.

    Not only UK.

    I am on holiday in Crete at the moment. Refuse collectors came on Tuesday and everything went into same wagon, irrespective of bin colour.

    I'm thinking Wall-E was more an accurate depiction of a future planet Earth than people want to admit.

    Our bin collection is every week, alternate weeks for household waste and recyclable wast so one week it's only household rubbish goes in the bin truck the next week only recyclables, Maybe you need to contact your council and let them know what is happening.

    Regards

    should just be 2 bins, total, 1 for recyclable materials 1 for landfill, central sorting depots, job done, trouble is half the staff involved would lose their jobs once it was set up so that's a no/no, the number of people now employed by every authority using a vast number of vehicles burning huge amounts of fuel to collect our waste is bloody stupid but unlikely to change

    There’s no recycling out in the sticks near Liskeard...
    Still bung everything into black bags.

    The council has a humongous sorting depot with a monster hamster wheel that smashes everything up and separates everything

    Clever stuff

    It’s CRAWLING with rats in daylight !!!

    See what your council authority has to say about it. If they're not helpful, your local newspaper might be.

    I have an open fire. 99% of my waste goes on that. I've had my bins out three times this year!

    You could find yourself falling foul of air pollution laws soon which are changing what you can actually burn.
