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 7 year old daughter and I are going to be doing a bike ride in aid of Cancer Care, the event is on 19/4/14 and is 5 miles along Morecambe promenade. If our small target of £50 is reached, I have agreed to join in with the dressing up (at minimum bunny ears and a fluffy tail, more if I can get hold of a good rabbit costume). If anyone wishes to read more about the event please visit www.thebigbunnybikeride.org.uk

    As the title suggests, I am also after your money in the way of a donation to the charity via my just giving page at http://www.justgiving.com/Jonathan-...ntent=Jonathan-White13&utm_campaign=pfp-tweet

    Thanks in advance :D

    Well done to here. Jas1975 asked me to make a charity payment from his sling purchase, so I have just sent you £2.

    Regards

    Well the bike ride is fast approaching, my wife is on with trying to crochet some bunny ears to go over my bike helmet and make me a bunny tail. Anyone else feeling generous? The ride is this weekend, sat 19th April!

    I lost my dad last night after a 3 year fight against this illness... Thanks again Jonathan for doing this as your generosity may help others in the future to avoid the pain and misery he went through in his final days and their families avoid the loss and grief that we are currently suffering!

    Very sorry to hear your news SteveO. It is my pleasure to do something to raise money to fight cancer, I have not lost anyone as close as a father but have had other relatives affected.

    We we have been out and cycled the route this morning and it is easily manageable for my daughter (and me too thankfully). Next time I will have to look out for airgunners looking to bag a rabbit for the lot!

    One last request for sponsorship and a great big THANKYOUto everyone that has donated so far. We are up to a round £100 on just giving with another £28 in cash donations so we have far exceeded our target. I have bunny ears at the ready and there is meant to be face painting before the event so I should look suitably silly! The camera is charged and ready so pics to follow!
