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'm the team mercenary wicketkeeper (I stump for a few teams), & it's time for some new gear. My current gloves are miles too small, although being in size mens, being that I have massive hands for my age.
    On a school trip to York, after I got into a bit of a tussel, I took advantage of a bit of spare time, & went into the JJB to look for some new gloves. when I found the cricket section, I found some ideal gloves, being them perfect size. I snapped them up for £25 (Gunn & Moore 606's if anyone want's to know).
    In a game they acted Censored, most balls bobbling out & nobbling, even though I had rhythmetically worn them in for the previous few days. I couldn't stand them anymore, so at drinks break I swapped them for my old, too small pair of Kookaburras. From then on every take & catch was fine, none even bobbling out. Argh, Pi**ed off.
    What a waste of £25, but I have a fiendish plan...

    Anyhow, my old Kooks are now bloodstained due to an unprovoked nosebleed today, but now I have learnt to invest in quality, not price, that being why I am investing about £55 on some state of the art Pumas.

    May that be a warning- avoid GM 606 stumping gloves...:rolleyes:

    As long as it's not damp or dull, then it's placement of ale and cucumber sandwiches.:eek:

    I like one day cricket very much, I find test matches a little tedious but I was a member of Essex cricket club for years and used to go all the time. Take a leaf out of Jack Russell (ex Gloucester) and wear the same hat, gloves and pads forever and a day no matter how tatty they get, he was always comfy :)

    People who are not that keen on cricket should try watching a Twenty 20 game on tv, it's good fun and is trying to encourage everyone to watch :)

    Well, there's a difference between worn & too small. Worn is not so bad, but small means they dangle off your hands & raise hell. Believe me, it's time for new gear.:rolleyes:

    Cheers...
