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.

    Does anyone know how I get hold of T20 please - so I can find out about this event...do not redirect me to "The Dark Side" *** because I have been banned fo ryears - for putting up some pretty pictures of my lads shooting that I lit properly with gelled flashes and everything. A photographer on the moderation team took offence to them and deleted the lot and banned me there and then. They were just portraits, nothing dead in the pictures!

    Anyway, I have ot get hold of T20 and have no idea who he is or how to get hold of him.
    Thanks.

    I suppose it could be possible to be banned for pictures. With correct lighting and focus ect, some people may not be shown at their best and could possibly take offence, it just could be they would have liked the focus ring to be adjusted "slightly off" so to speak.:D:D

    Oh no I can't - it is rigged so I get a message that says: "you do not have permission to view this page" Even answers to google questions that are listed as being on *** - if I click the google list, I don't get through.

    I upset one of the Archant photographers by asking why airgun photography was so boring, then posted my pictures where I set up the lighting etc.....the photographer was part of the heirarchy, took great exception to my pictures and said he took the best airgun photography. My post lasted about 30 minutes and then I was banned for good!

    Not this one, but this kind of thing, with my lads hiding in bushes, that sort of picture:

    [​IMG]

    T20 - I have not got your number. I am stupid with technology...I was riding my motorbike back from London....just warmed through and dried out now! 200 miles through that filth. I was virtually hypothermic when I got home and I have managed to delete all the calls and texts on the phone....shivering, numb fingers. Sorry - I can't work these modern contraptions properly.

    Bleddy ell...you must have upset one of the "big knobs"...even I can view the basic stuff/pages & I've been given a lifetime cull...i'm sure T20 will communicate & might even explain why you can't view the forum..using his moderator's button.

    I was having a browse on there the other night and noticed quite a few of our members banned, they are very temperamental over there, or am I being to polite.

    You are being polite..I've lost count of guys I know personally that have been banned from there...no doubt some deserved it but others certainly didn't...I think most guys realise it's funded by the trade & "policed" by some people involved with the trade...forums like this one are independent & allow full debate of all subjects as long as we keep things civil..:up:

    That video shows all but one time I've managed to knock it over when I've aimed at it Steve :(

    And the other time I managed to hit it was with Snooper's gun he won the Springer Champs with. :)
