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.

    My youngest (23 months old) had an op yesterday and they made 5 incisions in total; 4 smallish ones and one larger. He was in theatre for a couple of hours but we were allowed to bring him home, arriving back around 21:30 last night. Since just after lunch this afternoon, you would hardly have known, he has been pretty much back to normal. We have been told to keep him from climbing and running round etc for 4 weeks, it has been hard enough to stop him today so it will be a difficult task!
    Anyway, for the non squeamish, here's a pick of 4 of his wounds (one is covered in a swab in his belly button to keep pressure on and the fifth is not pictured as it's somewhere I would not be taking/posting pics of!)

    He had an undescended testicle. The three smaller cuts were to put a camera and other surgical instruments in to find it and the the larger cut so they could move it down. The unshown cut was to sew it into place!

    good luck with his recovery mate

    Kids are incredibly resilient my middle one has broken both arms now, the last time in October. A real bad s type fracture of the left radius and ulna. His arm was 90 degree's out of alignment. Didn't cry once either time and was more bothered by the cannula he had in whilst in surgery. I'm sure part of it is down to them having no fear of death like us adults, as its not something that even figures in their thinking when they do stuff.

    grandson is waiting to go back in for further heart surgery, should have been today but an emergency came in so got to wait for the phone call now. last year he had major op to make a new valve to replace a missing one and all went wrong 12% of surviving, life support for a week but bounced back after that in no time, dreading this one again and now we all waiting
    hope your son recovers really quick and doesn't drive you mad in the meantime

    I can't imagine the stress of having a child go through heart surgery, best wishes for it all to go well next time and a quick recovery for you grandson.

    Thanks to to everyone for your well wishes. He is doing fine, the hardest part is preventing him from throwing himself about as usual.
