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.

    Don't understand what the insurance has to do with the DVLA, it's a requirement for use on a public road to protect third parties.

    Mikey,

    Is it something to do with not declaring a medical condition or something and invalidating insurance?

    I sold a motorbike last august and some 4-6 weeks later I received the slip of paper to say I was no longer the owner of the bike.a few week later I though I don't need it and binned it.anout two months ago I received a letter from Swansea saying that there records still showed I was the registered keeper of the bike and that on the 12/2/15 and that I didn't have it insured and that they wanted £100 or if payed by the 8th of April it would be reduced to £50.i sent a letter of to them to state I was no longer the owner regardless of what there records showed and that under no circumstances would I pay the £100 or £50.i received a letter back saying they would update there records and that I would still have to pay.they updated there records and in between them doing so I sent another letter to them sating I was not going to pay has I was not the owner and actually told them if they were not happy to take me to court in which they are doing

    If you'd care to share more info we might be able to offer some better insight, if it's sensitive send a PM mate.

    I have the latest edition of the drivers survival handbook which is written by police so may be able to offer some advice.

    Get all your details written down and collate all your evidence, go to court - they are going to look foolish, counter-sue for loss of earnings, stress and inconvenience.

    Shame you binned that letter mate. :(

    Have you got a dated receipt of sale with details of the new keeper?

    If you read the weblink that Milek posted, so long as you plead not guilty you should be okay, they have to prove you didn't send the document to them.

    Their incompetence knows no bounds!

    I think he's admitted in writing Steve that he didn't inform them according to the reply letter

    I think that is their stance but he has informed them and received a letter informing him that he was no longer responsible for the vehicle - sadly he binned it not realising that it was important in instances such as this, I always keep correspondence for 13 months in case a problem crops up.

    I know how stupid the DVLA and DVLC can be, I was arrested by the vehicle crime unit some years ago for applying for the logbook of a car that I'd bought without one, it was reported stolen and a huge mix up with the DVLC resulted in me being arrested..

    i think that there is a new rule that if you havn't SORNed a vehicle registered to you,the dvla consider it to be on the road and therefore has to be insured,the mot,tax,insurance are all linked.i dont know wether you get penalty points though.
