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.

    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.

    So there are draw backs to living in the Sticks not many and i wouldnt change them Much ! Grumps relay relay would like the wood pecker to STOP hammering away at the galvanised shroud on the telegraph post every spring at dawn . Pick a tree bird we are surrounded by them :rolleyes: Blue tits are irritating because my cave has wooden lat boards so the birds tap against the thin walls picking out bugs and waking me up . I sort of need these little irritations they keep me happily Grumpy . What i dont need is the mohamed Ali im ard bruce Lee of the bird world taking over my patch . Meet the Bird whos name must not be mentioned !!!!! AKA .YFHFBFB . WDYJFO .or John as Grumps affectionately refers to him. Turned up a few weeks ago and i was rather chuffed , cleaned up around the bird table :up: and was cool to watch . What is not cool is being perused down the garden by a bloody big cock pheasant making a weird cooing sound until fed !!!!!!!!!! time of year they get aggressive . So if the squatter is not gone by the time i get back from my weekend camping by the lake John will be on the receiving end of a landing net , placed in a card board box and released in the woods , I dont even shoot pheasants i just never wanted too , same as Hares , but i am not getting battered by a pheasant every time i open my door , even if it is kind off funny and i am kind of fond of him :rolleyes:

    I expect this kind of behaviour from Barce not from you :eek::D On a slightly serious side its got to the point of having to throw a handfull of peanuts one way and heading for the gate the other every morning going out to work , then trying to avoid the dam thing when i get home . However John has figured out i have to feed my goldfish in the pond when i get home so waits for me :mad: next couple of months he will become more and more agressive . Landing net card board box run free in the woods time .

    Pheasants do taste nice, especially with only one additional hole in a part of the anatomy you do not eat.

    Mole would not tolerate such wanton behaviour, John would be had for dinner by now!
