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.

    On Wednesday.

    I’m kind of glad actually, nice to get back into a routine.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got loads done over the isolation period, but I’ve had enough now...

    ...anyway, I need to loose this little belly that’s formed over the months:thumb:

    The place looks terrible!

    The boss has been cutting the large grass area’s, but it looks like I’ll be strimming and raking up for the next week at least!

    Not fussed, as long as the sun is shining:)

    my first day back was yesterday since the 6th of march as I had 3 weeks holiday in before it all kicked off.
    they've been after me coming back for the last 6 weeks but I told them they'd got absolutely no chance.
    I have a few issues,plus the fact that I've not held my grandson since the 13th of march and if I can't do that there's no way I'm mixing with a couple of hundred geezers that I don't really know.
    to be fair I enjoyed it though.

    This is my fourth week back, I was glad for a change if scene but nothings changed.
    Cnc are still taking the work out & not checking it, then when you ask them about it they stare at the computer for 10mins wondering what went wrong!
    Same old idiots.

    I’ve been back for two weeks and hate it . How can you social distance in a submarine?
    The only thing I missed was my mates and the banter .
    Having all that time off makes you take a long hard look at what’s really important which for me is family. I have missed too many family things because of working shifts .
    I’m hoping that my work offers redundancy as I’ve had enough.

    I’m inclined to agree with @Wild Bill.
    Sorry, but griping about your 4 month fully, or mostly paid holiday coming to an end is a bit rich.
    Lots and lots of people weren’t given that opportunity, and without them your holiday wouldn’t have been quite as enjoyable.

    Mild ‘rant’ over :)

    Like a lot of others I never stopped,still driving all over the country to work,roads are getting stupid again. Under normal conditions if I interact with 2 people a day in work, that's a social day for me.:)

    I rather envy those of you who carried on working, I wish I had been able to.
    I have spent most of the last 3 months stuck in a 9'x9' room, isolating to look after my elderly father.
    I haven't seen my baby neice, haven't seen my girlfriend or our dogs.
    And I still don't know if I have a job to go back to when the furlough scheme ends.
    Some holiday.
