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.

    I saw this over on another website. Tinbum's daughter has had a fairly major operation and wanted to wish her a speedy recovery.

    Tinbum is also saving for some special wheels for her wheelchair. So for the foreseeable future all the donations from my paracord sling sales will go to this fund and through August I will add another £1 to each donation.

    I have started off with sending a few extra £'s from some recent sales.



    Tinbum, I hope you don't mind me posting this.

    Mod's I know we had some issues with charitable type threads before and was wondering if it is OK for members to PM me directly for details if they would like to make a donation.

    Top man! Nice thought Leaky5.

    I would also like to step up and donate a quid from every HFT cushion MiY KIT sells during August.

    Tinbum, I hope you don't see this as charity mate. It's a genuine gesture of a bit of solidarity for a like-minded shooter. I hope your little girl is feeling better very very soon. Hope you ain't offended.

    Neil.

    Wow! Just found out about this thread, and it's really to got me!!:eek:
    Thankyou very much for all the support and good wishes.

    Just to let you know, she's doing very well and has come off the epidural today, and its possible she could be going home tomorrow!:D

    Its her 13th birthday next Sunday, which is all the more special as we were told she wouldn't see her second! I am taking some inspiration from The A Team and am converting her off road wheelchair to a monster truck, beach buggy type thing to get her across the sand to the sea. She loves splashing around in the sea!
    I really appreciate your help with this, and if anyone has any ideas relating to it, please shout out. My current plan is to make a second, removable rear axle to hold the PU wheels at the back. The front is a single wheel in a fork type arrangement. I was thnkng short axle with spacer to fit in that with a smaller PU wheel either side.

    Thanks again from myself, my wife and most of all from Kerrinanne.
