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.

    Firstly, it is polite to see what topics are being discussed already before just diving in and starting your own and secondly; who cares about the 'other' forum?

    No comments necessary - just fed up with opening topics to find it's the same subject - AGAIN! :yawn:

    I do have an account on the other forum and I was posting about a stock I was doing for a member there for him to see and because the post implied I do stock work for a living it was classed as advertising and deleted, I questioned it with a mod who simply said it was against the rules so I accepted it but have since seen similar topics with the same implications and they are left running ahh well one of them things

    Not that I've ever been there, but I assume that *** is a commercial forum? A verticalscope type affair? Seen a fair few forums very much like this one ruined with corporate takeover.

    I care. I'm subscribed to all 3 airgun forums, 3 diecast model aircraft forums, 4 aquarium forums & a reptile keeper's forum- & I care about all of them. In fact, when the only second option for a reptile forum crashed permanently last year after more than 10 years success because of a mistake during a server move, I cared about that too.

    *** has moved onto the same server as this one. But it's moving back to its old server.

    Yep seen many new names with low post counts and long membership of the AGF coming out of the woodwork to post about the other place...

    This isn't the other place, this is a separate forum and essentially the competition of the other place so why the hell do they make topics about it?
    or is it because if they complain over they they get kicked out???

    I totally agree. Don't know what forum people keep bleating about and I don't care. This is the only forum I need

    Many are members of other forums, I am a member of the other forum, I only post sales up there tbh. On there I am still Surrey shooter and have a good reputation for sales, 8 years worth using that name. Newbies on here think I only joined last year and with zero feed back on here its just easier to post over there and people know who I am.

    I'm a member of the other forum and don't see an issue about either reading or mentioning it on here and as for your comment of "No comments necessary - just fed up with opening topics to find it's the same subject - AGAIN!" ......SIMPLE - DON'T OPEN ANYTHING WITH THE OTHER FORUM IN THE TITLE!

    There's another Airgun forum? Surely not. As the Highlander said, "there can be only one".
