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.

  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.

    Actually if every car van etc,then where do they get the electricity from to charge it...it has to be produced somehow.... how will the lost revenue be supplemented? where do you recycle the batteries? etc.
    It's still all too early to see what benifit and losses will be gained by this all, an infrastructure has yet to be built in all senses of the word, the one thing you can be sure of is that it WILL cost you... (what happened to LPG adjusted vehicles?) It will some time before before the mist of rhetoric clears and we see what lies ahead.

    I'm certainly considering getting back into home brewing but unfortunately I can't cycle to work as this involves multiple sites spread all over the North East and my short fat hairy legs are simply not up to that amount of peddling! :D

    I tend to think it maybe a Gamestop type situation, forcing up wages. More power to their elbow if it is. I don't believe there is a real shortage, but a contructed one, like much of what is happening.

    People don't consider the cost in CO2 of making ethanol. It is a lot more than the CO2 that it replaces in petrol!

    The answer the website above gives for my car is "No information available"
    As MG Rover no longer exists I guess there is nobody to ask.
    Running it of super because I don't want to risk it.

    Based on the price at our local BP forecourt I assume they have all ran out due to evaporation :D

    Is E-10 a fuel that contains 10% ethanol? If so, we've been using it for many years and I drive a 1991 truck that works just fine on it. Many people complain about water and gumming of carbs on boat motors and lawn mower engines, but my mower has been fine for 21 years. I even leave it with fuel in and no additive over our 4-5 month off season.

    Anyone got any idea of the mileage if I wear my 55 year old Warwick flyer rollerskates and get towed by a self propelled Suffolk Punch?
    8 mile round trip but with shopping on the way back.

    Driver shortage apparently not a fuel shortage in some areas.

    Have you considered the CO2 output of the Farriers forge in your calculations?....

    And if we all had electric cars, I wonder what the excuse would be for lack of e-power: shortage of electrons?
