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.

    I wouldn't of thought it would be along the lines of previous years if there was one.
    Mick no longer gets involved with the forum, I believe Pete is going abroad to shoot the world's (probably both rifle and camera wise), I think the Nomads lads aswell as running their normal club shoots, are doing the course for the world's again on top of holding the recoil national championship and a round of the UKAHFT in August so I imagine their hands will be full.
    Just my ten pence worth and I'm not in any way trying to speak for others, I just don't want people to get their hopes up.
    Maybe time for others to step up if they want a meet?

    I think the South coast would of put a few off which is a shame as I remember you made the effort to drive all the way up to York one year!

    Hi guys.
    Just a quick word on the meet situation. With Mick away for the unforseeable future and the changes and demands on our calendar commitments for this year we can’t find a way to make this happen.
    For the last 6 or so years it’s been an honour as a club ,and a pleasure to work alongside Mick, Pete,Carl and the many other members to make these weekends a success and to raise a little something for worthy causes.
    On a personal note I’ve only missed a small meet since 2013 and they’ve all been brilliant and I’ve met some fantastic people.
    Cheers, Stu.

    Maybe Chris at Blackbrook can step in. One course for the serious HFT guys, one for those who go around with sticks, and a great plinking range should result in something for all members.

    I think a "venue" could be found...my interpretation is that you need some guys from the Forum to organise it on here...then at the venue...& that can be a thankless task....they would be spending most of their time "organising" & all the responsibility that comes with that & not have much time for themselves...not always appreciated....in an ideal world you would just pay for the services of someone to do everything for you at a venue..or have a member who has enough land to host it for you & generosity to share it...:shrug:
