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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Hi,
    I know I need to click the provided link to change my username but when it's changed, do I keep all the posts I have made under my old username? E.G. my avatar, pictures, account settings etc? I chose HatsanMan as I had just bought a Hatsan and now I realise it was a little dumb as I will probably get different rifle(s) in future. I'm sure you know what I mean. Thanks!

    P.S. Will other members realise it's still me and my previous posts etc :D and is there a complete member listing so I don't accidentaly choose a name already in existence and have to go through the whole procedure again? :rolleyes: As my name is "Andrew" but I prefer to be known as "Andy", it will be something with ANDY in the new name.

    Andy :)

    Yep, I have got an old nickname from school, but it wouldn't be appropriate here in the forum :censored: :tongue2: and I'm sure there would be much :protest: about it :D. Nah, mate, it's just got to have Andy in it somewhere but I'll make sure it's unique :susp: and this time I will choose VERY carefully as I don't want to have a :facepalm: moment again!

    P.S. Lookout, I've just discovered all these extra funny smiley thingys :heh:. I wondered where some of the guys were getting them from. I love the "facepalm" one. Just looks so funny lol

    If the 76 refers to your age, you should change your avatar, as you should not be getting too excited. :D. Atb. From young Bob. Oops, that's buggered up my user name, AGAIN.

    Hmm, "WelshAndy". Not a bad suggestion. Trouble is I'll be leaving myself open to a bashing from all you "English" folks on here probably :p.

    It's ok, I'm not an English basher, my girlfriend is English (Hampshire orginally) and as I often tell her, well I guess some folks have to be :D. I then get it back about being Welsh in return lol. We have always teased each other, but together for 5 years now and it's all in light hearted fun :). Besides, my old man is a Scotsman lol ;).

    Andy :)

    OP, yes, you'd keep all your posts, avatar etc. The only difference that other users will see is that your new username will appear in the posts that you make.
