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.

  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.

    Ok I love my gadgets

    I have watched the gadget show from the start and thought it was one of the best programs on TV...until the last few years and the revamp.

    I recorded it last night and have just watched what I can only call the most dire piece of TV I have watched in a longtime, in parts its like a poor mans Blue Peter and other parts just a waste of time. (I have not watched "Secrets of the Living Dolls" yet so this may beat it...)

    Why change the format to something that is utterly dire.

    Does anyone know if there any other programs that I can watch that will replace this very poor excuse of a TV program which will be the last time I watch it due to the poor presenting and format.

    Rant over

    It went downhill after the soppy screaming blond bint joined up...........at least she's only a small part of it now.
    Also 10 minutes of each show is taken up by the competition

    Hold on there.......I agree the programme's gone down hill lately but at least Pollyanna and Rachel are better to look at than that's muppet Jason who's one of the most irritating and annoying people on TV! He reminds me of that other muppet Timmy Mallet but its a big shame they don't give Jon a lot more airtime.

    I'm 100% with you about Jason, and the asthestics of the female presenters, but only Jon I feel really has any idea about gadgets and actually seems to be interested and to be fair if I really want to look at the female presenters I have the internet for that type of thing....;)

    Suzi was both easy on the eye and came across that she knew what she was talking about.

    I used to watch it all the time and even went to the NEC last year to see it live but since the massive decline in my disposable income I would rather not bother watching it. In the last few I watched everything seemed to be well out of my price range and therefore unappealing. Plus it was shed loads better on CH4.

    Never watched them but did catch the back end of one before another programme I wanted to watch came on, To compare performance of 3 VERY expensive desktops they decided the best test was to upload a large file to cloud storage , Have a PC Game running and also Watch a DVD which ever completed the upload first was deemed the winner :facepalm:

    It has become more about dare devil antics like water-skiing and less about good tech reviews. Jon is more interesting to watch and listen to than the party girls and Jason. Suzi was a nondescript brunette who sounded like a school teacher. I could just about put up with her because at least like Jon she did fairly honest unbiased reviews.

    Yep. These blasted revamps are a pain. I seem to think that some new boy is put in charge of the production and typically they behave like a dog and a lamp post. They have to make their mark. They have to show that they've done something. They have to prove themselves whizz kid. They have to justify their existance in effect.

    Why the hell did Radio 7 have to be renamed Radio 4 extra? Why meddle with things just for the sake of it?. One of the best "new" bosses I had joined us and did virtually nothing . He could see that there were no need for "efficiencies" and he was also wise enough to realise that meddling would have been just inflating his own ego.

    I have a massive crush on Rachel Riley -- but used to really fancy Suzi Perry as well.
