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.

  4. Hotmail block emails from us entering your inbox. Unless you can setup a safe sender you will not get activation emails from the forum. Please use an alternative provider or complain to Hotmail.
    Hotmail addresses include.

  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.

    Is it possible to find a member who has registered but not yet posted anything?

    A friend has registered on the on the forum but was having some trouble with its use. My plan was to find his profile page, have a nose at it, send a friend request and a PM.

    Is there a complete list of users anywhere? The member in question joined on Tuesday 11th January in the evening and registered as something like Smarty Pants 24 (or 25).

    Obviously not that much of a smarty pants as he was struggling with the forum's use.

    Click advanced search and then start typing in the User name box. His name will appear as one of the options. Although there is no one called smarty pants anything.

    I tried that, but struggled.

    Will a user not show up until they have posted something?

    I wouldn't think having to post was a restriction.
    You sure he's not got the address wrong and has registered on the .net version rather than this .co.uk one?

    No I have just messaged him on WhatsApp. Apparently he can't complete his registration as a new member because his email address is a hotmail one but he doesn't have another. Does that mean he can't join?

    Its a pity as as he is interested in DIY NV and I said this forum would be a good place for info.

    Which one is easy that the forum will accept?

    The forum doesn't accept hotmail and it will be hassle if he registers another email and they still say no.

    I presume the email address thing is to stop fraudsters logging on too easy?

    I just had a quick look and the only thing it says about email address is you mush use an ISP one if you want to sell anything. Nothing I can see about registering.
    My email address is a gmail one so that worked in the past at least.

    I have spoken to him today (my friend not .) and he said he is having trouble registering. It is this forum but he can't register with his hotmail account so I want to find what he should do to next.

    I couldn't register with my hotmail account when I joined & one of the mods sent me a message about it. Maybe when they see this thread they'll get in touch with your mate by PM ?
