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.

    Call it what you like, Intuition, Instinct or Gut feelings,

    Do you trust and follow what you think is right at a given moment in time, just by your gut feelings,

    Or allow yourself to be swayed by others thoughts and feelings of a situation ?

    Ive got to say I'm very analytical, I don't make decisions lightly, nor do I let others cloud my judgment, I think on the light of it, no, I'm not very compulsive.

    Why do you ask?

    All depends on the situation, sometimes i see, i want, i get. Sometimes i will listen to advice and take it, sometimes i won't. As i say. all depends on what its about etc.

    Good point, that's why I asked what situation were talking about, I've had to make some split second desicions, In life and work (like us all), but I'm not entirely comfortable with them. Sometimes I am, I can't tolerate stupidity, bigots or rudeness, I have a uncanny gut feeling for these, I have a inbuilt '**** filter'.

    I trust my instinct,but don't always act fully upon it but sometimes analyse it and see if a 50/50 approach is possible.
    yes I've too been swayed ,rightly or wrongly lead too.
    It's no exact science but a gut feeling isn't always a million miles of true mostly.

    I've been offered work in London, but it could mean moving back up there from Dorset.

    From beauty to beast, be like me moving back to the ex.

    I thinks some analytical thinking is needed, put it among us if you feel it's appropriate.

    Look at your reasons for moving back to London.If they are purely financial and you are comfortable with the way you live at the moment,it's a quality of life question.If you give up what you have now and it doesn't work out for you,how much will you have lost,not money wise,but life wise.I don't know how old you are mate,I am in my fifties and had cancer five years ago,that changed my outlook on my life.I stoped drinking as I was alcoholic,never touched it since,I rented my house out and bought a static and I live there now with my wife and grandson.I have just started a job doing night trunking up to carlisle,I don't need a lot of money thankfully,so can choose what I do.What I am trying to say is,basically life's too short,live to your means,enjoy your family,quality of life comes before money,so long as you are happy where you are why change the situation.It's human nature to aspire to get the most we can in life,but sometimes more equals less.
    If you are young and single however,ignore this as a total silly old twonk rambling on and go to London get what you can,make a fortune,then sit back and enjoy when you are also a rambling old git.

    hi john, I don't think I can offer you an answer to you question, I think there's only one person that can(you) its a big decision to make, the only thing I can say is if there is no work were you are and you need one then its the only option I wish you all the best in your choice and for the future :up:

    No, cos my gut feeling is usually wrong and/or based on paranoia. I've slowly learned that analytical thinking is the way to go when making decisions.
