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.

    College, sixth form et al.

    To Cog and A1 and others of your age group, I realise I'm the first one to take the p*ss out of either of you, given half the chance:D. Truth is, I really feel for your age group, partly because the Media keeps insisting there's been a 'dumbing down' in standards, partly because there's precious little work around, and partly because the system almost forces you into staying on:mad:. My parents couldn't afford for me to go to University, so over the years I've spent seven years at College just to do the tin-pot little job I do:eek:. Good luck to both of you in whatever you end up doing, I wish my age group would get off your backs.:up:

    davy, you wont live that down:D

    i need 180 ucas points and if i drop physics it means i need a B and a C in 2 A-Levels.

    and thats to either:
    get into UNI and do an enviromental health course
    or officer in the Royal Navy (+ the fitness test)

    so far i know i can do the treadmill test. 12kph run for 12 mins= 1.5 miles

    its quite easy but i think the hardest is treading water in heavy overalls then climbing out of the pool unatended

    also shuttle rund pushups and that kind of thing

    My dad couldn't afford for me to go to college or university, I wish I had, I wanted to be qualified as an accountant so I could work for myself. I didn't get into accounts until I was 21, I took my book keeping exams first then went to college at night to do the accounting exams. I got a teacher who spoke poor english, I struggled to understand what he said so I gave up and complained to the college who refunded my fees. I wish things had been different, i'm too old and too short tempered to get qualified now.

    Believe me Cog, you will know when you find the right thing, if you are not happy then you have done the right thing.

    Well then Taff,
    Keep up on the fitness tests but bear in mind its a minimum fitness standard for selection and if you go in as an officer they expect you to be able to lead by example;). The more points and faster times then the further up the pecking order you will be as competition is quite fierce.
    Good luck anyway and watch out for that golden rivet!

    Greg, I should warn you that A1 has been warned all about the myth of the golden rivet, but has still volunteered to go looking for it. Soppy as a box of frogs, or a closet Village People fan? - your call!:D:D:D
