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.

    Bit of fun now....
    Since its been raining and I have not been able to get outside I have had to take more 'interest' :confused: in the Tv. Some of the adverts they show are so badly made and unrepresentative of the benefits/uses of the product it reaches to point where I either turn it off or change to another channel. That is until they appear there and away we go again.....thank Big G for DVDs and the fast forward of the smart tv.
    Examples?
    That squealing woman on the Natures Essences shampoo advert (any need for the squealing/), Michael Parkinson and his over 50 plan (Boring wrinkly face and no sincerity) and that robot Brian for car insurance (It was funny the first few times but now boring when its on every advert break).
    Anyone else got ones they cannot stand to see repeatedly?

    YouTube....got to have looky at that now if they raise a laugh instead of the just sheer mindblowing annoyance those on so regularly cause. What's the matter with them....are their sales so poor they think they will force us into submission and buy them? As for 'Parky', on it he looks like he's ready for his own box! Parker pens....shove them where the sun don't shine :p

    Those puppets make me feel nauseous, seriously - I feel queasy when I see their waxy old skin :(

    Cillit Bang ("Barry Scott" gets on my wick!) & Lelli Kelly - my daughter hates these ad's too: "Daaaaddy! Barry Scott's on again!" or "Daaaaaaddy! It's Lelli Kelly again!"

    Also, Accident Lawyers 4U -"Hello, I'm a jobbing actor picked for my vaguely authoritarian looks and I'm here to impersonate an ambulance chasing lawyer. Have you had an accident that may well have been avoided had you paid due care & attention to your surrounding environment?". Grrrrrrrr-aaaargh!

    Not an exhaustive list but they're the main culprits.

    All of them!
    Has anyone ever been seriously influenced enough by an advert to go out and buy the product?

    Any of the 1654 bingo adverts on telly . Makes me laugh if a bloke lost his wage at bookies on horses he'd be called a mug but we have all these bubbly bingo bonus bonanza ads every 2 min and it's still gambling and addictive but for some reason it's acceptable and fun ?

    :up: Thats the way I do it now too. Pity it can only retain an hours worth of viewing though. Can that time of playback time be extended? Anyone know?

    Oh. and what about that latest bingo one with the crapping pigeon....wouldn't it be great to see it shot down :rolleyes:

    I can't say any advert in the past has ever made me realise such a wonderful product was now available and I just must have it..! Absolutely none. Since twin tuner recorders were available, we just tape everything we find interesting enough to watch throughout the week on non BBC channels and skip every ad. Our recorder remote has a 2 min and a 30 sec jump button which is marvellous. Sadly we have to keep catching those 118 muppets just before the programme starts again though.

    I'm a tennis fan and they're having adverts every change of ends during the French open now, again we tape it and use the magic button throughout the matches, it makes our TV life just worth living...:up:

    Ref: The Herbal Essences shampoo advert. I haven't seen it in ages but it references "that scene in When Harry Met Sally" and she basically fakes an orgasm in public to embarrass some guy who's trying to hit on her. They've done it with various of the moment celebrity females, the latest being that Kardasian woman who got famous for doing a :tongue2:sex video:handjob: a-la Paris Hilton. :rolleyes:Not sure what else she's done to warrant being famous to be honest.:rolleyes:

    Just seen another that is truly nonsensical however you view it....
    Cillit Bang and that twerp who states Hi, I'm Barry Scot......:confused: who the hell is that??????????????

    From posts it looks like the vast majority of ads are nothing other than a lying or grossly exagerated nuiscance and should never be believed. pity there is not a button to turn them off! Good old BBC has none....but the majority of progs are rubbish.
