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.

    Somewhere in the settings I once came across a table of sizes one can use for photos posted in the forum. At the moment everything I post comes up as a thumbnail. How do i alter the size or where do I find that elusive section?

    The easiest way is to upload pictures to Picasa web or Google cloud etc and just copy and paste the photo into your post.

    Simples...;)

    If you are uploading a picture using the quick reply. Once you have uploaded the picture double click the top left corner of the picture, then an options box pops up, click on full size. Then submit your post.

    That's what I do - you get links to full-size or thumbnail versions of your image that you can copy/paste into the thread.

    Thanks fellas, your answers appreciated. I'll have a look at Photobucket as I haven't used that before whereas I used Picasa extensively until a year or so ago. At first look I decided to follow Andy's procedure as that seemed the simplest however as I scrolled back up the full size picture suddenly reduced back down to thumbnail size. How did that happen?
    Anyway, I now have three different methods to follow, thanks.

    Handy to know. I found that sometimes using external images I'm told the image size is too big and end up just uploading to from the computer to the forum.
    Odd cos a large proportion of jpg files are only a few Kb big.

    The advantage of using your email provider in this case Gmail is you don't need to sign in to any other account as you are already signed in when online, i used Photobucket for years and wasn't happy myself with it. Now my phone pictures are auto uploaded. I simply right clicked on the thumbnail and copied then double tapped to give a full picture and copied. approx five seconds posting two pictures already auto signed into my email account and I can delete them easily if required....:) no messing with URL's and I can edit the picture if I choose months later.
