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.

    My missus is Welsh, and I've just had 8 weeks of her sister living with us during lockdown. I could not afford to drink enough to cope :shrug:

    Well over 2 bottles tonight Norm and doing well :) My Cousin and her daughter ( what relation is that to me???) have both had the sultana and plum. SOOOOOOOOOOoo by my reckoning YOU, THEM, (need to get some to my doctor!) and it must be ok for me to drink!:D

    Had a few thoughts about the sultana and plum and I reckon Sultana (or raisin ) would be ok on its own so long as you catch it early enough to so it is sweet and you can freeze it to make "Norm's Pims" (Aka loony juice). I can work out a recipe if you are interested?

    Webley Tempest and home brew? Is Dan turning to the light side of "the force"? :D

    Its a bit like "I would BUT" Dan -----ie Catherine Zeta Jones --BUT --I'd hide the bread knife (Mad welsh bint!) . OR Charlotte Church(same) ------- Jeez Dan--any bloody woman!
    If you have a Webley tempest and some (GOOD!) homebrew then life is not so bad.

    I've only ever made wine using cartons of fruit juice, works reasonable, but I've branched out a bit..
    The safe one is a carton of red grape mixed with one of apple and rasperry
    Next up I used a carton of red grape and a bag of raisins.
    Then a load if carrots mixed with a bit of the apple n raspberry.
    And the grand finale a bunch if bananas with a bag if sultanas.. Its going like a rocket lol.
    Haven't been able to find a tempest yet, that scorpion hopefully is still waiting in the wings, but this furlough lark had played havoc with me finances. Hopefully got some work from him e starting Monday for 3 months, then probably no job, never mind, the wine should just be coming along nicely by then, well the carton stuff

    Oh . Dan--just go out and buy a pcp! :(

    With the organic apple or the Sultana and plum wine ( or pear:rolleyes:), Norm has not had a hangover (SO FAR!) Embrace the light side of the force! Nothing to stop fermentation, nothing to clear the wine ---all natural . Hang on--a Tempest will come---otherwise £80 should sort one --but Id prefer cheaper for leeway,

    Roughly 2 1/2 - 3lb of apples per gallon + 2lb 8oz ---2lb 10z of sugar per gallon (from drunken memory) should give 13.58% to 15i%sh ! :saywhat:
    Norm ----Back me up :)

    Just for info, after you boil the carrots and take the sugar and most of the taste out, blend the carrots up with a little corriander to make soup.
    It's still pretty bland, but with a dash of salt, a dollop if black pepper and a good dose of curry powder it's quite er stimulating on the palate...
