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.

  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.

    That's a good idea. My garden is quite long & at the end of the road. All the fences are my responsibility & I always seem to be needing to do something with a fence :facepalm:

    Do you mean this type of thing?

    Good luck with yours @Tricky13 have you tried searching for a local gardener/odd job man?
    My brother has recently started doing this type of work & I think his customers are getting a great deal.
    You might be able to find someone that could work for a day rate with you? You source the panels /posts & get the hired help to do the heavy bits?
    It'll hopefully be cheaper & you can mind your knee.

    @Tricky13, I forgot to mention that my brother only advertises on Facebook & Instagram.
    I'm assuming this is the way it happens? Free & a big audience.
    Also, you'll hopefully be able to see a portfolio of their work :thumb:

    I have seen this kind of thing on gumtree as well. HTH.

    Well with a lot of help from a friend and a bit of assistance from me the fence is now replaced, new posts and panels which will with the addition of some slats end up about 8' tall which should stop the neighbors kids kicking ball over all the time....couldn't believe it when the morons wife came and asked if the fence was going back on the original boundary...err hello would i go to the trouble of digging out the old posts otherwise...and then later when my friend arrive she only had the cheek to ask him when i had already told her...that's the mentality of them...the moron himself came back home and said to my friend that if he needed any hardcore he had some on the truck and if any was left over he could just dump it on the truck all nice and smiley like he hadn't been a complete **** to us in the past.....shame i am a nice guy other wise i would have replied to her inquiry the same way that her husband to my wife a couple of years ago....

    But my thoughts are the he was trying to play games and wouldn't want to upset my friend who is a 6 foot brick outhouse and would likely take his head off...which i just whish he had...but karma will get him in the end...if not i will save up and hire some serious retribution.

    Anyway i am off to crawl into the bath in the hope that i the heat will calm down the raging sciatica and badly aching knees as i have done way too much had to cancel my dentists appointment tomorrow as i simply wont be able to drive...so some more heavy duty pain killers and off to bed early i think.
