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.

  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.

    Have all our drivers registered here ??

    http://www.petrolprices.com/

    Find the cheapest fuel nearby or enroute. If not, it would be a good idea. Try always to buy from the cheapest station near you, even if it's not the nearest, as this will force the dearer stations to lower their prices or loose trade. Obviously don't make special trips to stations further away, but by knowing where the cheap ones are helps plan refuelling.

    Yes Andy, most (but certainly not all) people know their cheapest locally, but this site gives you the chance of finding the cheapest away from home too and it might be cheaper to fill up enroute than to do it at home. I've done it many times and saved 2p a litre at least, not a fortune I know, but it rewards the stations that try.

    if you want to squese the extra pennies you can lift the hose after filling as theres a few drips in the Uof the hose so lift that up and you get a little more fuel and you leave the hose dry:D

    Fuel prices aren't as bad as they were, around here supermarkets are cheapest so I usually go there unless it's out of the way. I only need to put £20 every week or so anyway so I'm not one who needs to squeeze every penny :up:

    Its funny how people go on about how expensive fuel is. To put into perspective, Litre of Diesel on average is around the £1.20 mark but you buy a Litre of Lager in the pub and that will cost £5 or more.
    I know there is canned Lager but still would be more expensive than fuel.
    Think of how long and costly it is to refine that gloopy black liquid gold until you get petrol/diesel compared to a brewery's quick/er process.

    Just a thought

    The problem is the price of lager only affects those that drink it, the cost of fuel affects everyone..just some more than others and when it jumps 40% in a year that's a hell of a price hike on everything.

    Ours is finally coming down, it's 106.9 at Tesco and they have been giving 5p a litre off coupons as well, about time. I get my email every week Buzz and have stuck to the cheapest all the time. Esso now the same as the supermarkets where we live :moo:

    Yes MOO Esso and Shell are doing quite well keeping down to supermarket prices. Watch out for ASDA in the near future, they've said they are going to force fuel prices down...let's wait and see.

    We only need one company to put their prices down, then everyone else will have to follow or they won't be able to compete. Simple as.

    That's what you would think Cog, but unfortunately it's not the case. Even with such sites as I posted there are still people in the more expensive petrol stations buying fuel, it's crazy and while ever that's happening fuel across the board will not drop in price. Close to me there are stations charging as much as 5p per litre more than another station only a mile away and they are still selling a lot. While ever they can, they will, it's up to the public to buoycott them, but they aren't doing it.
