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.

    I have sent a PM to stevemandm for advice on this subject.
    It has become apparent that a great many people don't have any means to check the power of their rifle/pistol and may unintentionally be breaking the law.
    I have a chrono that I am willing for people to come and use if they want to come and test their rifle.
    All I ask in return is you bring something like an Argos catalogue/phone books etc that can be used as a backstop to save my walls from getting holes in as it is set up indoors.
    I am located in Worcester WR5 1EN.
    I work nights from 8pm-12am but am available during the day from about 12pm onwards and most weekends although it would need to be a mutually agreed time.
    If anyone else wants to do the same then please post here and maybe we can get a list of people willing to help and hopefully this thread can be stickied for all to see.

    This is an excellent idea, and much-needed. I was in the same boat not long ago, and one of the members of the forum (SteveO_R10) kindly put an afternoon aside to help.

    hi mods, can this thread be stickied, and moved to the best section, if not already.
    i think its a great idea and contribution by larryking28, and should be of value to many members

    I live in Garswood near Wigan.

    If anyone is stuck and needs to crono their gun then they can drop me a PM and we can sort it out when mutually convenient, just bring the gun and a few different pellets in your calibre if you can.

    Some nice gestures from people but, in reality every air gun owner should have their own chrono, and at around £45-£50 there's no excuse not too really?

    I was in Woody's a while back, a guy came in asking for a couple of guns to be checked, somebody asked him if he was interested in a Combro, he said no i can't afford it at the moment, and went on to spend £350 on a scope and bipod???

    :rolleyes:

    Now that's interesting; the one thing that has prevented me from getting a bottle is that there's nowhere near here to fill one. It's at least an hour and a quarter from where we are to Telford but that's better than two hours to Neath, for example. Are you a member of a diving club or something?

    I also have a chronoscope and a kettle, and an 800-acre permission on my doorstep if people need tests and then a shoot.
