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.

    Boat fishing, that takes me back to 1987. We were demolishing part of a school and living on sight in a caravan in Fleetwood. My mate Russ and I booked to go out early one morning and yep, we went out and got absolutley
    leathered the night before and then filled our bellies with take out... Not a wise move... We turned up at the dock still half cut and stinking, boarded and away we went. I recall it was a nice day and the swell wasn't that big, but it was noticeable. On boarding Russ and I noticed a very large and tall gentleman who sported a thick mop of tightly curled black hair, we had a saying, if he says it's wednesday, it flippin well is wednesday, a big bloke whom we aptly named.... Geoff Capes. Everything was Hunky till we till we stopped to fish, then the rot set in..... Now from that that trip I learned two things... The first, there are 3 types of (spewers honkers hughies or ralphs ). No 1. The Phlat phlat phlat, then silence...... No 2. The Phlat phlat phlat then a deep moan.... Then the ultimate No 3. The Warrior Roar The Phlat phlat phlat and a massive massive deep moan. So we casted out and sat down having a laugh and a smoke. Glancing over to Geoff Capes who was stood up like a man mountain, aggressively devouring a large pork pie and laughing loudly like a Viking, while chewing with his mouth open and head tilted back.
    That was it, there was a No 2 phlat at the stern and the stench drifted over to Russ and I, both doing a No 1 Phlat. For us it was over we must have looked like two nodding dogs, 1 up and 1 down and all the time. Everytime I came up and looked round there was Geoff Capes stuffing his face and laughing. The rest is a blurr, for the next few hours, No. 2 phlats and No. 1 phlats were all I heard. Untill there was an almighty Roar a Phlat phlat phlat phlat and a death moan, A grande No 3 PHLAT .... Geoff Capes over the side feeding the fishes..YES..GET IN. The second thing I learned that day was that THERE IS A ..
    On getting off the boat, after catching nowt, I'm sure Russ and I kissed dry land and vowed no boat fishing ever again, then headed off to the nearest Lusher (pub ).


    Best of luck to you and I hope you catch enough to get you in the top 3.

    ATB Lee.
