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.

    Helping a member.

    In an effort to support one of our members we are arranging an on the day raffle at the AGF meet where all proceeds will go to helping tinbum with his daughters wheelchair project. More details here (http://www.airgunforum.co.uk/forums/showthread.php/183659-Get-well-soon-to-Tinbum-s-daughter).
    To enable us to provide a small donation we are looking for anything shooting related that you have of lowish value that you wouldn’t mind donating to the cause. Due to recent rule changes we are unable to offer raffle tickets for sale on the forum so we are limited to those people who will be in attendance.

    If you have anything that you can get to us please PM me so we can build up a list. If you can get it to us in time for the event that would be fantastic. Short notice we know but if we can get anything together that would surely help show what a wonderful bunch of people we have on this forum. Anything not won will be sold via the forum at a later date unless the member wants it returned to them.

    many thanks gantongunner and milek

    Its a shame the rules couldn't be changed for this, would raise a lot more money if all the members had the chance to win instead of just the few.

    I don't know what to say guys?! Thankyou obviously, but its pretty humbling to have people I've (mostly) never met going out of their way to help our daughter. The mrs is having a little cry (in a good way) after reading this and I'm pretty choked too. Obviously, I will put some iou's for either tuning kits and shrouds into the raffle. After all, the TbT Tuning brand came about as I had to change to working from home to care for our daughter as she's now of an age and size that it takes two of us to attend her day to day needs. Every cloud and all that.........

    Again. A big Thankyou to all of you!

    Mick I've just donated the £18 I made from the sale of that tank rucksack to Nick's wheel fund, I'll be bringing some items with me to the meet also (I need to sort the stuff out so can't be more specific at the moment), If by any chance I can't make the meet I'll drop the stuff off at your house before hand if that's okay?

    All the very best to Nick, Karen and the little 'un. :thumb:

    Steve.
