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.

    Sounds good, i used to keep the ferrets together in a court but find it much easier to keep them clean in individual hutches, they're cleaned out every day one scoop out of poo one handful of shavings back in, easy:)

    i use to keep al my ferrets together in a shed measuring 12x8 with a few pipes running to other runs around the garden as for toileting i had 2 plastic pet carriers in the corners before i put the ferrets in i put some mess in each carrier and just had them to lift tip in bin fresh sawdust and away they went as ferrets always use the same area biggest problem i had was selling kits off they was so much fun to play with and add 10 ping pong balls and watch the lot charge about attacking them as though they where eggs

    I got an aviary in my garden there is a few finches and cockatiels in there at the mo but I might get shut of them and convert it to my new ferret house instead of keeping them in the rabbit hutch

    Lol sounds ideal, my 2 gills are prolific chewers so don't know if it will be a good idea if they manage to escape could be disastrous as we have chickens and rabbits in the garden too

    ive got about 300 mile of water piping at the allotment but its diameter is to small,

    just trying to plan this run, its 8ft long in an L shape 4 ft high, so im thinking of chopping it down to 2 ft.

    on the plus side the butcher gave me 3 stone of chicken giblets, beef and lamb bone and hearts so theyre eating like royalty.

    just got in to find the hutch lid open and both ferrets gone, had a look and seems there is also a perfect square cut out of the mesh.

    im foaming me and the little one were playing with them 10 hours ago. seen a cat limping aswell so dont know what has happened or where they are, but they cant lift a hinged 30mm felted 4/5ft long lid by themselves.

    police are coming round later on today

    i feel sick, they could have been dumped or out

    right we may have a positive, been to see my local shopkeeper for cctv and he told me of all the commotion in the street at about 12 45am.

    seems someone has let them out, possibly tried to steal them, possibly been bitten and the ferrets have done a bunk. they were nearly run over and seem to have been rescued so im waiting on a phone call.

    hooray, the shop keeper knows who had them just hope they still have:up:
