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.

    My father loved kids but he told me many times when he was alive that this is a changing world and not such a nice place to bring children into. I have never wanted children and will never have any. I'm afraid when I am gone there will be no more Ralphs on my side of the family (I can hear Steve heaving a sigh of relief as I type this) :D;)

    Too late for me now James, One reason is i'm too old and the other is i've been sterilised, definately wasn't meant to have kids. As for the world lets hope it does get better, not much prospects for young kids at the moment.

    :) Its not for everyone We always wanted children but after losing our first child (a boy) at 5 months to high blood pressure we said perhaps it wasn't to be but after a few years we was blessed with our daughter who means the world to us but even though we wouldn't want to be without her if parents was honest children can bring as much worry and heartache as they bring love.

    good on her margaret thats what mums are for,i always thought my mum would be around for years i loved her so much,but she died of cancer when i was nineteen it killed me for the first 2 years i went out drinking and getting in to all kinds of scrapes,then i met my wife who i had new since i was a kid she come from a good back ground me from a half decent one she learned me how to talk,and not use my fists it took some time ,i think of my mother every day and always talk to my kids about her,i think if she was still alive today id still be single and living at home as we had a special retationship but my wife took my mothers place and she has been good to me as a wife and mother to my children,and i know my mum would be happy if she seen uss together ,its so easy to take the wrong path in life ,thats why i always try to see the good in people even though they havnt had all the breaks in life that some of uss have
