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.

    Rite, where is it then buddy, not that it makes any odds to me as I don't have a springer anymore "but" others may appreciate being able to actually find it...

    Why have they hidden it ?... :shrug:

    We got assimilated by Crapatalk, but that was a while ago. I've just posted the link - and it's always been in my signature... :facepalm:

    Who is it that put the myth around that springers are hard to shoot, there not, they only take as long as any new fifle does to get used to the trigger.

    Ok, I was brought up on springers but that was a long time ago, until last year I hadn't shot anything seriously since the late 80s.

    Does this imply that shooting a springer has to be learned over a long time and once learned never forgotten.

    are there shooters out there who were brought up on pcps and then switched , and if so, it would be interesting to find out why.

    or is it just an old git thing, which I would be perfectly happy about.

    Because of the subject matter, you have to join to view the whole content (and some excellent content there is too) - we wouldn't want a Daystate owner viewing by mistake and suffering any emotional trauma. (By the way, we don't change the 'G' to a 'D' when we write Daystate)... :D

    A requested donation in dollars to a forum you're unable to preview in advance is a deterrent for me.

    I understand you coming out recently but....i'm sure 99.99% of all shooters first came into this sport shooting a springer...some choose to get better springers with less recoil to aid accuracy and some choose to go pcp to eliminate recoil and aid accuracy even further....especially hunters....why the hate for wanting to move on?

    I joined the springer lounge a few years ago. I didn’t stick around as it had a weird atmosphere about it. Like a cult where the mention of pcp’s is strictly frowned upon and you get told if you do.

    I got my knuckles rasped for having pcps in my avatar and one person private messaged me saying that he secretly admired my pcps but would not dare mention it on the forum.

    Very weird people, I haven’t bothered with it since, apart from following a link to a thread on there.

    WTF? That's the first I've heard of that - thieving Crapatalk unspeakables, please DO NOT donate, I'd rather see the forum fold than give them money. It's supposed to be a free forum, but they're constantly after donations... :mad:

    I understand completely this thread is essentially about having a springer section, which frankly I don't really give a tinkers cuss about, It's all( initially ) In the title of the thread.

    How ever to be pedantic about it, the title of this thread is, Anything Springer Related :mao:

    Someone called me a "cult" once, at least that Is what i think they said.

    No I'm not in favour of a springer only section, I like the "virtual Pub" atmosphere of the forum as it is, preaching to the converted is no fun.

    I can imagine they meet at a stone altar after dark and cut up old Parker Hales as a sacrifice to the springer gods.

    The whole point of TSL is that it's springer-only. If you want to talk pfffttt-guns and gassers, there's all the other forums. And yes, we might be a bit weird/alternative - we even have a jukebox - but I'm proud of that... :D:cool::p

    A short time ago I suggested to them that 'perhaps' all the Springer Lounge members could emigrate to here and I suppose if we had a dedicated springer subsection they may just join us and cock a snook at CrapaTalk.

    Now where is me hard hat?

    Oh, and if we have a subsection for springer, can we have a big sticky for HW99s owners? :facepalm:

    There isn’t any hate, there’s not even mild disapproval, there is ,however, a lot of p1ss taking and banter, and that makes the world go around a tad smoother than it would otherwise.:thumb:
