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.

    I’d stay right where I am now. Any earlier there wouldn’t be the miracles of modern cardiac surgery and neither my wife or myself would be here today.

    If I could bring my 20 year old self to now that would be my wish.
    Life is good but would be better without the arthritis and failing eyesight.

    My best years were my twenties.
    Would I like to live them again?
    Not if it means reliving all of lifes disappointments that came after.
    I'll stick with the memories. :)

    I wasn't living in Cuba or UK, I was in Singapore. You could have let rip and I would probably have survived.

    Mid 90s I'd have paid attention and gone to school like I should have. As the saying goes there the best days of your lives. You only find out that saying is true once you've left ;)

    September 3rd 1989. I'd tap my young self on the shoulder and tell him to run. Do not accept the attentions of that female and definately do not undertake any form of relationship with her. Your life and dreams will come to a crashing end.

    Not sure I'd want to go back, if it plays out the same way.
    It was pretty s hit for me through school up until 16, then I went to collage & started a fresh, I had a short good bit mid 90's followed by a crap bit.
    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

    Never think it was better in the past. Rose coloured spectacles and all that. The best times in your life unfortunately go by un noticed at the time until hindsight gives you the appreciation. I always think the best times are the ones yet to come. Life is full of uncertainty, the unexpected, the unbelievable, the unobtainable and the joyful all at the same time. Embrace the present. You can't re live the past and you may not see the future

    Early nineties.
    To be able to play footy for my village team at full pelt, after a hard night down the pub. Showing off in front of the mother of my oldest boy, trying to convince her I'm the man of her dreams.
    Photos from that period would suggest I was just another gangly youth, but I loved it all the same. All the people important to me were alive and life was all about Saturday afternoon football and the pub afterwards. I thought that as long as I played every weekend I could never get old.
    Learned some hard lessons since.

    If my heyday taught me anything it's just to go for things there & then, if nostalgia gets you down its because of regret, you regret the things you don't do more than the things you did.
