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.

    A brand new 30 target course tested us all today and without any wind to speak of I thought it was going to get cleared. Matt Hipkiss did his best and went 21 without missing, and then it all went the shape of the pear. Four of us finished on 57 with only Tony Male to take his last shot to get a 58; he fluffed it. Count-back didn’t sweeten the deal as it pushed him down a bit further. Darrin took top honours on count-back so well done again that man.

    A really nice course and not a single stoppage, well done again to all those who helped set this up. Great job.

    All scores on count-back.

    cheers folks for a cracking comp as its been a while since I have done a comp, so many thanks for setting up a great course. because it was very well thought & put out.
    but I have to say the knockdown on peg 3 ? the monkey \ gorilla shape one made me laugh sort of high up in the tree line.
    also peg 25 was very good even if I plated it, oh well I will just try again asap :D.

    roll on the next one........

    Great course guys, lots of thought and effort went into this.

    Many thanks for all the guys who designed and implemented the layout.

    I take responsibility for the rain stopping as soon as Jody and I arrived :).

    Really enjoyed the morning, beat Jody on the last target, last shot;).

    Thanks again

    Very nice of you to say so, if you get chance it's worth a visit on a Sunday when we have a club comp and as you can see there's a load of members of AGF at FM it's like an AGF meet every Sunday. Theres another six or seven missing today due to bank holiday commitments etc.

    Watch out later for news around a summer AGF meet in August; a full weekend of HFT and comps might be on the cards :)

    Really Great course today really enjoyed, it full marks to course the setters.
    well thought out range traps, loved the high angled close targets and the numerous mini kills some at steep angles they really test you. Apart from my donut on the stander, it was those mini kills that killed me. Great shoot even the heavy rain stopped on Q for the whole shoot. can't wait to get back up there and shoot that course again

    Dave
