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.

    '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.

  4. Hotmail block emails from us entering your inbox. Unless you can setup a safe sender you will not get activation emails from the forum. Please use an alternative provider or complain to Hotmail.

  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.

    That's strange Ron i wouldn't have thought changing your isp would affect your email passwords.Originally i only had Vodafone broadband until about three & half years ago but the service deteriorated to the point it was virtually unusable so i ditched it and joined BT but it never affected my email account password when i changed isp.BT do have a broadband helpline which is
    0800 111 4567 if that's any help or you could pm 177(Barry) on here he's bit of a IT whizz kid.it seems strange that it's affected your email and ebay passwords but not your password for this forum.

    Swapping ISP's will not change passwords on the internet ( only email programs like windows live\ mail etc, pop3 \ smtp setting. but if you have not heard of them don't worry about them ).
    Hence like said click on the I have 'forgot password' button. Also check caps lock is not on & check numlock etc etc is on.

    As above "forgot password" and" forgot username" if you lost that as well
    they will then ask for the email you signed up with and send you a reset link

    hope you get it sorted

    Can you please double check that you are typing things in right, like I've said check upper or lower case letters are the right way around, if you use them that is.
    Also if are using any numbers check the numbers are being entered right on the screen, along with any special characters \ symbols are right too.
    I don't mean to sound like its your fault... far from it, but I am thinking some letters or numbers are not being typed or entered right.

    Worse case I could always remote in your computer & have a quick look.

    'Silly question'. As it should not be a saved password issue.
    When you type a word in a web site password box does a few dots or the rest of the word auto show up ? If so can you delete any letters etc in the box & type it back in yourself.
    If you know all your web site passwords you can delete the old ones CLICK HERE for a help guide.

    What's the last bit of your email address? Just wondering if you are trying to access an email address from the company you just left (virginmedia).
    Wouldn't cause a problem with your EBay account though.

    Good idea, but don't you have access still to your Virgin Media Mail account for around 3 months ? or it used to be. last time one of my clients used them some time back.
