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. 

    To close this message box, click on the 'X' in the top-right-hand corner.

  4. Hotmail block emails from us entering your inbox. Unless you can setup a safe sender you will not get activation emails from the forum. Please use an alternative provider or complain to Hotmail.
    Hotmail addresses include.

  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.

    Right' get a load of this.

    21 steps taken as in the 21 gun salute to signify the highest honour!.

    Hesitation after about turn for 21 seconds for same reason.

    Guards change every 30 mins.

    The requirements for the guard are to be between 5' 10" and 6' 2" tall and a waist cannot exceed 30".

    They have to commit 2 years of there lives to the guard of the Tomb and live in Barracks underneath the tomb!

    They cannot drink alcohol or swear for the rest of there lives so as not to disgrace.

    First six months of duty they are not allowed to speak to anyone or watch tv, all off duty time must be spent studying the 175 notable names laid to rest at Arlington national cemetary.

    It takes these soldiers 5 hours a day to get ready for a 30 min guard.

    They are given a wreath pin to be worn for the rest of there lives as long as no rules are broken and there are currently 400 pins.

    All that sacrifice just to be able to mince around like a bloody clockwork faggot for 4 mins 25 secs! Only in America.......
    What's with the shades? And the hats being too small?
    I've a feeling if some real soldiers came by, they'd have all Censored themselves:D
    Still, very unusually for an American manoeuvre, they did get through it without shooting each other:D
    F*cking w*nkers:down:

    I feel an American drill chant coming on.....

    Well I don't know, but I've been told
    That G.I. Joes are gay not bold
    I'm sure I feel that I did hear
    U.S. Guards like it up the rear
    SOUND OFF! SOUND OFF!

    For many years now, it's been said
    That Green Berets like giving head
    When badly hurt they don't wear splints
    But on parade they love to mince
    SOUND OFF! SOUND OFF!

    When they're on leave, they get their fill
    Of pushing lots of Censored uphill
    And back on duty how they train
    At learning how to daisychain.....

    Careful Davy- Thats terrorist talk, before you know it the Feds will be at your door. Ive seen it on TV. If I was you I would join the Obama fan club and start listening to country and western. That way when they do come knocking they will be convinced you are a true American and leave you alone. Thick f*&kers!!!!:D:D
