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.

  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.

    Bought a lovely sofa just before Xmas spent £1500 on it. Last night we had one of ghandis specials. Got up this morning to find the cat had enjoyed a Saturday night take away, finding some curry we hadn't eaten dragging the curried chicken onto the sofa filling its greedy face and staining the sofa all over with curry! Any tips on how to get this out greatly accepted before the cat gets the needle.

    Accidental damage contents claim, at least it will get replaced if they can't clean it out. Always assuming you have cover from the thieving insurance companies. The turmeric used acts like a dye and makes things yellow, it can be got out but usually you have to catch it before it dries and bonds to the fabric. You are not the only one, our kitten likes having a go out our 2k leather sofa.

    Contact your insurance company, it's what you pay them for. If it can be gotten out then they will do this as an option rather than replace. Just make sure you don't get battered by the excess.

    Cover the whole thing in turmeric and be delighted with the new colour sofa, it will remind you of curry and your lovely cat for many years

    Contact the insurer's. They'll try and do it on the cheap by sending a professional upholstery cleaner and if after that the stain's still there then it's hello new sofa - sell the old one on Gumtree if the insurer's let you keep it.

    Wife spilt full glass of red wine on our beige fabric sofa when she fell asleep ! Luckily I had a carpet cleaner in the van with hand tool attachment . Sprayed some HG stain/spot spray on first then hit it with the cleaner. It took two go's but all is good :)

    I wouldn't try that if you're fond of your skin. It would be the angriest knife clawed sponge in history!

    Out of interest what curry did the cat eat? Just wondering if there was a high turmeric content or if it was more red/artificial like some of those nasty tikka masala's some curry houses put out.

    dont mention the cat if you call the insurance company, a lot of policies have exclusion clauses in respect of damage caused by pets. I found this out the hard way.

    Thanks for the tips and also the one about not telling about the cat. I think it was my wife's lame rogan josh if not it was my madras but surely that would be too much for a cat
