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.

    Ever started the task of cleaning your car out... For the first time since owning it over a year!? Haha. I wish I'd kept on top of it since having it. It took me approx 2 hours just to clear the massive amounts of rubbish and toys the kids have accumulated in the back and Hoover the damn thing. Transporting the dog in the boot didn't help. Hairs everywhere! After a total of roughly 3 hours it is now acceptably clean and tidy. And that's just the inside... Lol. Lesson learnt here I think.

    I keep my car pretty much immaculate inside so never have to clean it out. Most of my mates though are dirty sods and their cars are like tips.

    I don't really use mine much so didn't really have to look at the mess for a long period of time. 'Polishing a turd' was a phrase that came to mind whilst I was cleaning it. I give it 2 weeks before its a complete mess again anyways lol. Should have paid my mate to valet it, would have been much easier.

    There's not enough daylight hours to clean the inside of my wife's car. The outside has been cleaned, I think, 4 times since 2000. It always smell nice inside though. Has a nice selection of air fresheners, has my missis. :)
    I keep my estate reasonably clean, inside and out, because it gets seen and used regularly by clients, and has company details in the rear side windows.
    It's not spotless but it is presentable.
    I don't do the engine bay though :eek:

    I gave up washing mine through the winter. I do 80 miles a day 3 days a week. 10 miles are through country lanes which have been waterlogged for three months. Took me three hours to clean it a couple of weeks ago. I used to do mine weekly but can't be arsed anymore.

    like Barcelona and Welshweeks I am a compulsive car cleaner both inside and out.

    I find it quite a relaxing thing to do, get the radio on and off you go mind wandering while you work and at the end you have a gleaming car.

    I am convinced a freshly cleaned car both runs sweeter and is quicker than when you started !:D

    Mind you I dont think I could ever get into the full blown car detailing scene, well not unless the premium bonds come up and I can get Lambo and pay some one to do it.

    It has been worked out most people have about another person in bodyweight in rubbish in their car, removing that will mean your car does accelerate quicker and is more fuel economic too!

    So not only are half the blokes on this forum afraid to stand up to their better halves and tell them that they are going hunting or have brought a new gun but they also can't get her to clean the inside of the car!

    Nice, how did you manage that? Looks like a fair dent in that front panel. Slightly tow bar shaped.
