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.

  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.

    As far as I know, only one actually is registered and partakes regulary and that's MOO. My wife Jenny often surfs the forum, but under my login as it's nearly always connected. Don't know of any others but there may be.
    As regards to getting an earful, I would guess it's not for spending to much time, but too much money. Fortunately I don't have that problem because Jenny loves guns anyway so WE spend, not just ME.

    Reason I ask is my wife has been reading some of the general chit chat threads. My wife had a major brain haemorrhage some 5 years ago and has had it really tough and has had to relearn reading writing etc.
    Would it be ok for her to join and take part in the forum even though she has no interest in air guns. The bigger thought is for more wives girlfriends to take part in the forum making it even more family oriented. Just a random thought on developing the forum really maybe a section for long suffering partners to chat and maybe a kids section.

    Andy, I would say she would be more than welcome, as long as she's relatively broad minded. Just keep her away from A1's posts or she'll learn some very interesting ways of spelling !!(and a few things she might not know about sheep) :eek:

    Thanks Buzz, she may well have had a rough time and i have had to spend a lot of time re-educating her, reading and all that. I think that somethimg like this forum would be really good for her, I ask no special favours for her cos she can stand on her own 2 feet, it's just that Tracey has expressed an interest in joining a forum and I think this forum has plenty for her to enjoy.
    never mind about a1, Tracey has 2 boys who she keeps inline,;) and me :eek:
    Many thanks
