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.

  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.

  4. Hotmail block emails from us entering your inbox. Unless you can setup a safe sender you will not get activation emails from the forum. Please use an alternative provider or complain to Hotmail.
    Hotmail addresses include.

  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.

    Only started last 24 hours but its happening frequently enough to do my tits in and I just wondered if anybody else was having the same issue - I have tried all the heavy technical stuff like turning my phone off & on again/restart etc but it's still happening - any ideas, thanks :thumb:

    I'll hedge a bet and say this only occurs when you're using mobile internet as opposed to connecting to your wireless.

    I've rarely ever been able to access AGF via mobile internet.

    You are actually using 4G because your wifi is not available. The phone has wifi turned off or the wifi / router / line is faulty
    Or
    You are at work using wifi and the settings have been altered to reduce traffic?

    I believe the parental control default is now ON
    You need to contact your phone network people and request that it be turned fully OFF.

    It works fine on H+, but never 4G. It is not a parental control issue.

    Wont be needing this then?


    Age-restricted content bar
    What is our ‘age-restricted content bar’?
    It’s a setting we provide as standard on our network to protect customers under the age of 18 from age-inappropriate content – such as pornography, violence, discrimination, drugs or crime – on mobile devices.

    This content bar works on the Vodafone mobile network only. So if your device is connected to the internet over Wi-Fi, adult content may still be available – you can manage this through your broadband provider.

    How to manage the bar?
    You can manage the bar through My Vodafoneon our website. If you’re a Pay monthly customer, you can also manage it in the My Vodafone app.

    If you have Vodafone Secure Net you can also manage the bar in your content settings in the Vodafone Secure Net App or the Vodafone Secure Net Portal

    For Vodafone Home Broadband, you need to manage your content settings through broadband content controls

    You can find out more about content control settings in our FAQs.

    Nope. I'm not on vodafone, and AGF is not age-restricted by my carrier.
