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.

    This morning i woke up to find my kitchen flooded and a big hole in the ceiling where a pipe had burst so i called out a plumber to come out and take a look at it. He needed to replace some pipe to fix it so he pulls up the floorboards to get to the pipe and it turns out the pipe he needs to replace runs nder the wall into the next room and the joint is right under my gun cabinet. So i've had to take most of my guns over to my gunsmiths and take the cabinet off the wall so he can do the work. Then he discovers some other problems and it looks lke who ever did the plumbing before we moved in was a bit of a cowboy and more work needs doing and it's going to take a few days so now the plumbing costs are going up and i'm having to pay to store my guns at the gunsmiths.
    I'm going to sit in the corner and sulk now. :(

    That's a right b****r m8, :eek:
    I'm a lucky bloke really,my 2 brothers both work in the building trade (Not saying most plumbers are cowboys but if there were Indians about they'd be fighting them!) and both are capable of sorting out repairs. It's a real pain in the ass that you can't do F A about it when your unable to do it yourself. JJ you have my sympathy mate, just hope the plumber don't stitch you up which is a big worry when you have to have someone in to help you.
    My bro's done our bathroom 2 years ago and put in a bloody great big spa bath for me to help with my back problems. I couldn't have afforded to pay real plumber like corgi but my younger bro is qualified just not done corgi.
    Hope your plumber is a good one JJ and hope you get straight asap.
    Done sit in the corner to long m8, you gotta get that Beeman and teach your nipper properly, :up:

    The worst thing is my dads a plumber and if it wasn't urgent he'd have come down and done it for free but the work can't wait the plumber showed me where the problems were and i know enough about plumbing that could see he wasn't messing me about.

    And with a 5 year old and her friends running around plus the plumber and his mate i can't afford to keep all the guns lying around i've got my trusty hw97k and s200 stashed in my wardrobe if i want to get out and shoot but the rest needed to be somewhere safe.
