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.

    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.

    hello, so far elliot has had 3 pages on the above thread saying how good his write ups and photos are becoming from forum members including myself. even with a camera phone he has a good eye and ability to show in frame that pigeon shooting foray, it is not for me to question his personel circumstance but from what he says would like to try and become a country sports writer/ photographer and i am sure many of us oldies had our dreams like me becoming a jack hargreaves !!!!. so i hope elliot will take this the right way when i feel a good camera kit is required. THEREFORE I AM PROPOSING US FELLOW FORUM MEMBERS FELLOW SHOOTERS/HUNTERS give this young man a helping hand by donating towards a camera kit fund but only if he finds acceptable. if this is the case i will be the first to donate £10 payed by cheque or paypal. thankyou. mods if in the wrong section please move

    engraver you do have a knack at doing good writeups,like i said to you on one of your previous threads the way you write them and the pictures draws you in from the first to last word and there as good if not better than any off the writeups in the glossy magazines ect
    ive not managed to get out in the field for quite a while now but everytime i read one of your writeups im itching to get my rifles finished and get out :up:

    I read your posts Elliot, even if I have not got an interest in that particular subject, if I see your name I'll open it and have a look - that is praise;).

    I think I respect your experience and approachability more than anything else though, you genuinely have been there, seen it, done it, bought the T shirt, and most people have not, but claim they have:rolleyes:.

    Good on you whatever you decide to do.
