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.

    So as you all know how bad that thread about logun ator turned into the usual.
    Just a quick one for you all in case you haven't noticed. He's been given a second chance and it seems just a temp ban now.
    Which is a good do I'm sure you'll all agree:up:. Please folks don't turn this into a he said she said slagging match.:thumb:

    If it’s true that’s great news for Mick and even better news for the forum.

    That is brilliant to hear.....I'd honestly felt a bit flat on here after knowing Mick was gone. Thank you Mods for doing what is a very positive thing for the forum and it's membership :up::up::up::up:

    I'm always surprised when long standing members get the chop

    Not because I feel their above the law . If ppl step out of line must be told ...

    But being a member for 10 years and contributing so much must add a few credits to the naughty bank...

    Nice to see Mick on the way back

    Well done mods for being big enough to revisit and take alternative action. Takes a big person to challenge themselves.

    Always sad to read that a long standing member has been banned, When that ban is permanent one accepts that behaviour was so egregious that the mods had no option.
    The use of an extended ban, one month or three months may be alternative for any member whose contribution to the forum has been mostly positive and whose offence does not involve use of forum for dishonest activity.

    VAR called into play maybe? :D

    I was as surprised as anyone else by his ban but not being privy to the PM's I refrained from commenting. I'm glad his sentence has been reduced. :)

    Well done the Mods!

    Anyone can stick to their guns come Hell or high water.
    It takes a lot more courage and wisdom to reconsider your decisions.

    Obviously, we don't know all the details but FWIW, I am glad to see this second chance.

    Tiz a fecking awful job ...moderating....sometimes the written word can be interpreted in different ways by different people...this proves that our Mod's are willing to consider/change things with afterthought....i'm sure Mick will come back on after his "holiday" & echo what i've said & move on.

    The Mod's do a splendid job....without them we wouldn't exist...:claping:

    Welcome back Mick when you touch down....your knowledge is appreciated....:tea:


    Everyone's a winner...:up:

    I messaged him the other day and he said it may get changed to a temp ban.
    It's great news for everyone.

    The sales section on here seems to cause nothing but trouble (and cost me money :facepalm:) given it's a free sales platform I just don't get it?
