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.'

  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.

    Hmm £shops track record for battery's is terrible... They usually last seconds to a few mins Grrr now Aldi on the other hand sell Duracell's packs of 6 for under £2 and they work as intended.

    Also pack of 4 rechargables are £3.99

    p.S. enjoy the fishy hat :D

    From what I have read here, there are both "positive" and "Negative" views on this subject :roflmao:


    To be serious though, £3.99 for the rechargable batteries is pretty good, providing they last and hold their charge properly as stated previously.

    People are trying too hard to be funny ... many more spurious attempts at humour and the thread is likely to go 'flat' ;)

    We may be "poles" apart on this topic and I am losing my "capacity" to make any more gags about it, but most of the jokes get a "triple AAA" rating from me anyway :D.

    You've got to try and stay 'positive' Andy as a 'negative' outlook on life leads to a downward spiral ... had to really search the 'volts' for these two !

    And last, but not least ...How much does a dead battery cost ?

    Be very aware of cheap Duracells. They are counterfeited to hell, and many counterfeits have made it to large retail outlets. I prefer Maplins own brand. They are equally long lasting good performers. I have had a couple of fairly expensive items ruined by leaking counterfeit Duracells.
