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.

    Hi guys, I'm new here and looks like a good website :)

    i have a quick question, it says you shouldn't sell anything on here that's advertised elsewhere due to people saying they want it and then it not being available, I take it that this is more aimed at advertised on other forums? What if its on gun trader where replies are only done by email etc? Is it still not allowed to put it on here also?

    Anything sold on this forum - with the exception of multiple items - has to be exclusively advertised on Airgunforum. Selling the same item here and other locations at the same time (this includes Freeads, Facebook, eBay, etc) is, as you've already read, a violation of forum rules.

    Our members are pretty good at spotting items for sale here and elsewhere at the same time and they're not slow at alerting the mod team about their discoveries :D

    Another rule that we absolutely insist on is that any items being sold over the value of £30 must be accompanied by a photo of the item taken alongside a piece of paper with the seller's username and that date the picture was taken written (or printed) on the paper. After one too many chancers taking money for goods that didn't exist we felt that this was probably the most effective method of safeguarding people's money.

    Amen to that bud!

    Stuff sells fairly quickly on here if it's priced right and have decent background!

    Nothing worse than saying 'I'll take it' and it's been sold to someone else!

    Maybe eBay sellers could take a leaf of AGF's rule book and site etiquette and not claim the item has been sold elsewhere when you win it for 99p!

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    its forum rules, as well as good form, manners and etiquette. what other source lets you sell for free and puts you directly in front of likeminded folk and potential buyers ?
    taking all this into account, it wouldnt be fair for a forum member to say 'i'll take it', only to be told 'you cant, cos its been sold elswhere'.
    welcome to the forum, abide by the v few rules, and you will love it on here mate

    I agree with the rules and think they do make it harder for people not to be let down......but it does happen, even with the rules in place. I also agree that ebay should do something similar.

    cheers

    Thanks for the replys and info and I'm inclined to agree with you that it's a great idea!
    I will either wait till the adverts end and put it on here or I might keep it lol. I'm still undecided, I'm kinda attached to my BSA and day state, they do look good sitting next to each other haha :)
