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.

    When I fell behind with a court fine once upon a time I had to go back to court to explain why I defaulted. I explained that I was very very sorry and had just honestly forgot.. I offered to pay the fine in full right there and was let off.

    I hope you sort it out quickly.. Phone up the Fines Department in your Magistrates Court and explain your predicament to them.

    NEVER forget your court fines, they would take your balls if they could, for payment,

    Whatever money you have, go to the court and pay it ASAP, then any spare cash keep paying, even if you end up using a food bank to see you by.

    If they call on you

    Never invite them into your house to discuss the matter.....once invited in they can return and gain entry without your permission

    Never leave any doors or windows open .....if they are open its not breaking and entering

    Always ask to see paperwork from the courts.......they do tell lies

    If in doubt call the police.....you will have the same rights to protection even if you owe money

    Mate , first off you should of contacted them if you were struggling to meet payments , now that's past call them asap and make an offer of payment which they should accept if you explain your circumstances . Then make an appointment with the C.A.B and they should help you get the payments reduced to something you can afford. Well that's how I did it a few years ago. Hth

    If it is a bailiff you have far more wiggle room than if it is a high court sheriff. Get advice asap and don't let them in unless it's a sheriff who you can't stop. Did you know about it before hand? if not ask for proof of the debt.

    bailiffs cannot force entry into non commercial poperty not even a high court sheriff, the police will only be there to prevent a breach of the peace or if you assult the bailiff, as said above do not let them in and don't fall for the 'can I use your loo' point him to the grid lol,

    If he has defaulted on a Court fine he will be in the shyte unless he gets in contact with the court.

    So long as you make an offer and stick to it you will be fine, they won't lock you up if you do this!

    Does this still happen? I know it did about 20 years ago as a few of my mates used to do it, hand them selves in on a Thursday and get sent from Chesterfield to Leicester for one night, Friday morning they would get a rail pass to get home but do some sightseeing first before getting a later train. Day out and no fine to pay, win win.
