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.

  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.

    Evening all,

    Anyone have ceiling fans in their house??

    Love the summer time, but not the heat at night. I have a couple of desk fans, but they are a bit loud.

    Cheers

    We have a nice big remote control air conditioning unit that cools the whole house down, I bought it back in 2001 when we had a really hot summer and my Mrs was pregnant, it's still going strong, cost a bit at £360 though! It's an all in one jobbie though so can also use it as a dehumidifier when I do some plastering or painting. Dries it out in no time!

    I have two, on the side of my house that gets the sun, they work fine and are quite unobtrusive, just a hum when they are on. They weigh a fair bit so check your ceiling can support them. Mine are made by westinghouse (the same company that made my mosin nagant :D) and were both bought used. They can spin in either direction, so they can suck as well as blow. They are quite powerful when fully on, they have three speeds, we often get temperatures as high as the upper 20's in summer.

    I put one up in my old house - it was great. It was reversible so in winter it would push the warm air down off the ceiling back into the room... toasty!

    I have them in every room in the house, except the kitchen and we did have one there until we had the conservatory done, the kitchen fan moved a few feet to the conservatory....

    For me they are from heaven above and the best invention ever. I struggle in the summer to sleep and since fitting these things are much better... All of ours are the remote control type and were bought from B&Q when they were on sale, I think we paid £50.00 each for them.

    I've always been a fan of ceilings, as has my wife.

    I have both ceiling fans and air conditioning fitted throughout the house here in Cyprus, but it does get a bit warm in the summer.
    Did this thread really appear on an air gun website or is this a dream?

    Most fans require an earth but many lighting systems are wired in twin only. Worth checking. You can make it work just fine without that earth but you loose the safety factor.
