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.

    Why?

    Because they can play cricket.
    Peculiar wildlife, lousy beer, too hot but they can play cricket, oh and rugby.

    they're rubbish at football and boxing though, when their cricket team lose all they left have is the ruggers and the kiwis turn them over there - must get lonely then

    you'd also have to have some surgery done before you go - sense of humour bypass, most of your skin layers removed and chips transplanted on to both shoulders

    don't know if they still insist on the criminal record though

    I don't know how you can say that Trevor. Watching paint dry is so much more rewarding that watching that shower sh?t walking off to the pavilion after yet another embarrassing innings.

    Well that's boogered me then.

    Why is it we invented all the sports (including what the boys across the pond call baseball) but can only win at snooker and tiddlywinks?

    A? were they giving you that funny baccy stuff Ray? I had a bull & cow with three Aussies back in the 70's. Their sense of humour amounted to "drop 'em Sheila" and about that awful beer Fosters, uh, it should have been fostered out.........to Russia.

    Pommies. Now, those that were sent to Australsia for nicking a pheasant had POHM (Prisoner of His Majesty) sewn into their prison clothes.............................So they are the real Pommies.

    What do you call an Aussie that says he has a Degree? An effing liar.:D No offence Aussies, you're still our cousins....... only with a suspect history.:D

    The most insular and racist place I've ever been. It's isn't banter of hi japes, it's downright offensive. I'm not at all concerned that they're country will all be dessert within 200 years.

    Do it Mikey ... I've worked out there in the past and love the place and the people who are mostly a refreshing change from some of the tossers I have to deal with in Blighty who all have hidden agendas and slag you off behind your back. An Aussie will tell you to your face and it's not a place for 'snowflakes' or people who are easily offended.

    You can go there, but face even stricter control of your guns, no semi auto .22RF, no mods, etc. etc. most Aussies support strict gun control.

    300,000 semi auto C/F rifles in circulation in NZ and only 700 handed in since the ban, go figure where you should live as a shooter.

    Sadly, for me, four of my grandchildren -- the four who virtually live at my house during any school holiday -- ARE going to Australia.
    Naturally I am overjoyed for them, but I am going to miss them like crazy.
    They go in October. :( ..... I shall also be losing a shooting buddy. :( . . We are looking for a shooting club there for him.
