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.'

  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.

Competition - seasonally relevant, sort of...

    ** Competition Time ** - seasonally relevant, sort of...

    OK, there has been some good news and some bad news on the threads recently, so, to try and lighten the mood, answer this question:

    How many apples have my daughter and I picked (including windfalls) from our biggest apple tree in the back garden over the last 2 weeks ?

    Here is one of this afternoon's 'gatherings' to give you a taster of the scale we are talking about here :rolleyes:

    View attachment 103632

    The prize will be...






    ... drum roll please...



    ... the 3-9x50 mil dot IR Nikko Mountmaster scope that came on my FAC Rapid that I bought a few days ago. It has the odd mark on it but appears functionally sound - it holds zero on a 30+ FPE Rapid so it should be OK on a 'normal' air rifle :rolleyes: ;)

    This would make a great starter scope for someone but I appreciate it might not be everyone's cup of favourite beverage.

    Rules:

    Competition runs until next Sunday evening (21st).

    If you don't want the scope I shan't be in the least bit offended (it will take more than you lot to hurt my dirty rotten feelings ;) ) but you can guess anyway :)

    Winning guesser gets the scope posted out to them or to a nominated UK recipient, or they can choose not to take the scope if they have no use for it, and simply wallow in the infamy of winning :cool: :D

    If you choose not to take the scope I will make a donation to HFH in your name or on your behalf :up:

    Over to you :D

    Another hint or two...

    The plastic dish Charlotte is pictured with on the opening post take just under 30 apples to be brim full and it was one of this afternoon's collections.

    A sneaky peaky at one small part of the offending tree:
