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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    After having struggled with Internet Explorer , then updating to Mozilla Firefox for the last 4 years, I decided to download Google Chrome despite my inner self saying that the 'Ultimate BIG BROTHER ' is watching my every move .

    I have to say , my Laptop has breathed a sigh of relief from the slow , processor sapping Mozilla Firefox.
    Feels like i've bought a new Laptop :)

    Adblock Plus just downloaded .... Happy Days.




    What are your thoughts ? ....
    Have I finally given in to Google's world wide web browser 'skynet' takeover ? ?

    I use Safari on my Mac, which I think is brilliant, it's bloody awful on PC though.

    I used Chrome on my old PC, and use IE on my (windows 7) laptop... I can't really see what the difference is (is that bad of me?! :confused:) What am I missing out on by not using one of these other browsers then? and if I were to swap would I have other problems instead?

    I use firefox,but it's been playing up a bit and I have had to go into settings and reset it.Then it messes about with my bookmarks.I can live with it though,the options are being spied on,not that ff doesn't I suppose.I like all the add ons with ff,and recommend "better privacy",it removes all the cookies that usually hibernate when you colse down.After the Angry Birds government spying case on the smart phones,I don't think any of us are immune to big brother,I have an old sony ericsson and don't even go on the net with it.I use a small independant email service as I really don't trust the big boys,I don't get any spam or associated crap,if on the offchance I have ended up with any i can block it easily and don't get 20 of it's mates tagging along.

    I've been using Firefox since it was released. An update late last year did cause me some problems but that was resolved with the next update a couple of weeks later. During that time I used Chrome which I don't much like although it doesn't now suffer the problems that I had with the first releases which would crash my computer every time.
    I just find Firefox is more user friendly than the alternatives but it does depend on what you've got used to, nowadyas I don't think there's much to choose between them in terms of security etc.
