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.

    In my prime I was 6’3”

    My son who is slightly taller than me is 6’3”. I measured myself at just under 6’2”,

    I’ve shrunk just over an inch in 20 years. Just thought I’d share this completely irrelevant information.

    :)

    Youll find, as you age, your loss of height is directly proportional to your lengthening nadsack. Ever wondered why elderly gentlemen fall over a lot? Its because they keep tripping over their ballbag.
    Thats true, that is.

    An affliction not helped by conflicting advice we are given:
    "use it or lose it"
    or
    "keep doing that and you'll wear it out!"

    I mean who should we listen to?
    Dad or Mum?

    :confused: Rob.

    You should try measuring your height first thing in the morning Stevie. You get shorter through the day.
    I’m 6ft in the morning and at night I’m only 5ft 12.

    It is unfair, your winky gets smaller whilst your nose and ears get bigger.

    Even more unfair if you start life with a small winky and big nose and ears ....

    The unfortunate facts of getting old i'm afraid, your hight decreases due to wear and tear in the joints, your d### is supposed to get bigger, but you loose the will and opportunity to use it, your waist increases while your ass decreases causing your trousers to fall down, and your brain still thinks its 30-40 years younger so you fall over a lot cos you still think you can vault that gate.

    6 ft 2? you're right that's practically being a midget. I reckon in the future all the kids will drag their parents over to you and say "Look daddy! It's the worlds tallest midget!" and the fathers will just say "there there son.. he wasn't always a midget you know.. he was a perfectly respectable 6 ft 3 man once, now rub his head for good luck and leave him be".
