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.

  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 have a pretty bad back, probably not helped by my sedentary life-style. I've been researching posh office chairs, the sort that are meant to last you at least 10 years.

    Here's a top 5 in no particular order. Just from my research so far: Zody task, Aeron chair, Humanscale freedom, hyken (from staples) and the teknion.

    Does anybody own anything that helps their bad back if they surf all day or play games a lot?

    We have aerons in the office, and I snagged one when I started working from home. Which was good, 'cos while they're great chairs, they're not cheap.

    I can get you some idea of the best for you if you are interested. It just so happens that part of the business I work for is the Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA) and a guy there, Lev, is possible the european if not world expert on chair ergonomics. They designed the tests which use a british standard bottom to sit down on them thousands of times, like you see at IKEA. If you are interested I could drop him a line on Monday and see what he might suggest to look for.

    That would be much appreciated if you would Ozzy J. So far having posted this on a couple of forums and reddit searching it's old posts the Aaron is often coming out on top followed by the humanscale. Where I might go to buy these things is anyone's guess. Although IKEA and leekes are on my list as I'd like to try before I buy.

    The best advice is go and try them - your an individual, and so is the rest of you, no one can say which is best for you but you.

    One bit of general advice - think what you are going to use it for? An "operators" chair is designed to use a PC or work from, so it's better for you and more comfortable sitting forward. But a "managers/executive" chair is more designed to sit back in, and there is little in the way of back support when you sit forward. The biggest mistake people make is sitting in a chair, leaning back, and thinking - "this is comfortable", because they then get it home and go on the computer :eek:.

    Try before you by, mail order is a mistake for chairs.
