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.'

    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.

    Was it a Hiatus Hernia?

    I had an epigastric hernia repair. Took the weekend off of work for it despite being given a sick note for 2 months!!!
    I sat at my desk and did as little as possible (like normal haha) after all, it was easier than sitting at home with 2 kids jumping all over me.

    1 week after my sick note ran out it popped again!!!

    Had mine done in 2006, then 2 months off work. Being self employed I lost a lot of money, but the heavy nature of my job as a carpet fitter meant I couldn't rush it. I still felt tightness in the scar for a couple of years afterwards.
    I was in and out in half a day, but looked a bit of a tw4t when I fell over after the op on my way out. My left leg was still numb and I went down like a sack of spuds.

    Nah its inguinal.. So when ever I took a step it was sore, now the wound is sore when I sit up or walk or just move in general! My doctor signed me off until the 11th July as I work in a livestock mart so it's physically demanding.. I don't plan on doing much just sitting on the xbox one :D
    I've been in since 7 this morning and still sat in the ward they want me to go to the toilet but everything is swollen so I cant but they don't seem to understand that... -_-

    Shouldn't have read this as I'm due to go in for a hernia op in the next few weeks. Can't say I'm looking forward to it but have to say a month off in the summer wth full pay will be nice.

    Had mine done just before Xmas and was off work for a couple of months but I'm a landscaper so had to take it easy. But it really depends on where it is and how you are with it atb

    I wasn't looking forward to it and I've not slept for days stressing over it.. Honestly I had nothing to worry about.. You get painkillers before the opp and loads after its not agonising it's uncomfortable... Hope yours goes well
