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 just put a post up and it got deleted within a minute

    I told Baz i was sorry to see him go, asked it it was the owners or had someone had a word with the owners and asked who will be replacing him.

    Finished off by pointing out the irony in the statement at the bottom of their web pages which prattles on about view expressed by members are not the same as the b.b.s blah blah blah and suggested they have a word and get the wording changed

    Then hey presto the post has vanished

    You guess right.

    Just been told that Doe did indeed use Ramsbottom to sack Baz for not towing the archant /amta line.

    It seems that the trade did not like their premier forum asking difficult questions.;)

    My sides are hurting with laughter at the downfall of Baz.

    What goes around comes around. He who lives by the sword etc etc. Perhaps he's seen the light and will atone for his time there by arguing against industry control elsewhere. Should that occur I may change my tune but his actions there over many years will need a great deal of effort elsewhere. He's been personally responsible for vast numbers of experienced shooters leaving that board, myself included.

    Why anyone would patronise a system that gave us 12 ft/lb and AT is beyond me.

    I don't understand why the thread is still there though? Why get rid of Baz but leave the offending thread there?

    Agreed. But he had the guts, finally, to stand up against Doh not realizing just how much power archant/amta can wave about. Yes he got his cummupance, he banned me on Doh's say so so I guess what comes around goes around. I just wish that someone would ban Doh, as he must be the single biggest embarrassment to the airgunning community.:D

    I'll bet it won't be for long.;)

    But seriously, Baz was looking for the facts to come out about the words 'capable' and Anti Tamper. The thread started with regard to Darrens problem with the slightly overpowered pcp's but it was getting too close to the reasons that AMTA don't want anyone to know about regarding the introduction of AT a few years ago. But in my opinion, the facts are as such: All pre-charged air rifles were and are technically section 1 firearms and require a licence but look how many there are in circulation now. Perhaps the industry panicked a bit and introduced AT as a measure to stem Home Office intervention? Just guessing really because AMTA have never explained why.

    I don't know how he's managed it but Terry has managed to lower my opinion of him even further. I didn't know it could go lower.
