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.

  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.

    :rolleyes: Really?

    Just to clarify - I am trying to get a definitive answer to see if it is within Parcelforce's rules to carry PCP's

    If it is - great.
    If it isn't then any insurance against damage or loss will be null and void. Also there is the anecdotal issue of seizure with possible destruction.

    Some may be happy to take the risk - I'm personally not willing to take the hit of a lost or damaged rifle.

    Quite why you think I'd actively go looking for a problem is beyond me, just trying to get to the bottom of the situation for the reasons outlined above.

    If you feel my posts have indicated otherwise then please feel free to air your concerns here so I may be able to address them. If you have no such concerns then all is good.

    You stated you got a definitive answer when you started this thread, if thats the answer you expected ? all well and good.

    But and its a big BUT ( not unlike some of the girl friends I've had, lol ) you've carryed on trying to convince us all, we shouldn't send by PF.

    yet nowhere in the PF rules, does it state, you can not send un-pressurized cylinders, i.e pcp's.

    By continuing with this thread, you are forcing an issue, which could well get acted upon, time to give it a rest BC.

    I didn't state I had the definitive answer when I started this thread, I was after advice. I have since had the position clarified by 2 parcelforce managers that they will not carry any pressurised cylinders either full or empty.

    I posted section of parcelforces' regulations regarding pressurised cylinders indicating they would not carry them. The 2 managers also confirmed they would not carry them.

    The issue with the cylinders being empty is that is is impossible for parcelforce to tell whether a cylinder is full or empty. Not all cylinders / buddy bottles have a gauge and even those that do would require unpacking, inspection, then re-packaging. The costs of such inspections being so high that a blanket ban on pressurised cylinders, be they full, empty or open without a valve on the end, is current policy.

    I severely doubt that this individual thread will have a direct influence upon parcelforce policy or the enforcement thereof, but from what I have determined over recent weeks is that any potential insurance claim against lost / damaged PCP's will be declined on account of them being ineligible for carriage according to current policy along with the potential risk of seizure.

    As for the big buttedness of past girlfriends, I can only commend you on your choice as it is indeed a well known fact that I love big butts and I can not lie, you other brothers can't deny.......

    Those X ray machines are non operational in the national hub, only operate in the International hub. Now what does that tell you?

    In case you are wondering YES it is me on the other board.

    And that is the problem... you are speaking to Royal Mail and asking them about Parcelforce. Go figure why they give you incorrect info

    Siezed by who? how would they know to check it? Damage happens if you do dot pack it properly, they process over 300,000 parcels a night with less than .001% damage and that is almost always down to poor packing. Lost in tansit, yes it happens as it does in all walks of life.... A risk, yes but minimal..
