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.

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

    Following a very successful forum meet earlier this month many of us have had thoughts about another gathering later in the year where we don’t have temperatures of minus 5 to deal with. Talking to the organisers at Worcester Air Rifles today they are keen to help us get over the disappointment of losing their previous offer of hosting the meeting as planned.

    Johnny Smith has agreed to let us hold a meet at WAR where we will have full use of the clubs facilities as previously planned. This consists of some of the best HFT shooting grounds in the land. A full HFT course (our own design), on site portaloo and some incredible views of the Malvern Hills and surrounding countryside with local shops & café’s. We expect the costs for the camping is £6 per night with £5 for the HFT shoot on the Saturday. Those wishing to stay for the WAR club shoot on the Sunday are welcome to do so. Expect some will arrive on the Friday, camp through to Sunday morning and shoot off (no pun intended).

    A couple of points to note. No hunting, No dogs. Anyone shooting HFT will need to sign in first so as to be covered by the club’s insurance.

    So there we have it; if there’s enough interest we can put something together which will be low-key. Guys around the camp-fire with beer and burgers enjoying the crack. All we need now is some suggestions for dates but I think August provides us the best chance of some fine weather. Let me know what you think and we'll see if we can get this off the ground.

    Any time in late june, not mid july (away with the other 1/2) any time after that is fine with me.
    Would love to come to this much more affordable one :up:
    Once again if there is enough northeners interested in going we could look into a minibus hire instead of 6 different cars.

    I'm definitely up for it. By the time I arrived at the last one, almost everyone else had gone home.
    It will be great to meet some more people [faces to names etc]

    Ok, things are looking good then. At the risk of being tagged as the Brokeback Mountain man I am happy to provide lodgings for one other member if it means cutting down on baggage or for someone who has little camping gear. It's a 4 man tent that you can stand up in so a bit more comfortable than the low profile ones. And yes, it has seperate sleeping quarters. Come on then Barc, apt picture time?
