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.

    Well done Mark, his reply speaks volumes for the type if boss he is. Too many bosses have been in the habit of treating their workers badly while things have been slow especially in the trades and now it's picking up again they can't understand why they can't keep taking the p**s and why people are leaving,often to go to forward thinking company's who are bringing in the quality workers and outing the dead wood while they can. Anyway,good on ya mate hope it all works out

    It will tell you the notice period you have to give on your contract of employment.
    If you haven't got one he can't make you stay.

    Thanks guys, means a lot to me thanks,
    with me I hate people who don't do as they say, like telling some one they will get this and that to get them to do something and then they don't carry out their bit, bloody makes my blood boil.
    if I say I'm goner do something a blinking we'll do it,
    so not blowing my own horn here, but I know I'm the top bloke and have the most experience on the whole firm,
    some weeks I'm just going round sorting out other people's cock ups and it drives me mad, we have this one guy that British gas tried for 5 years to get rid of, that's how bad he was even BG didn't want him!!!!
    he once was drilling a core hole for a boiler flue and he managed to drill the wrong wall,,
    he drilled in to the customers front room while he was sitting their watching tv :eek:
    and this guy is working out all the quotes :facepalm:
    no ball honest, this is what I've put up with for the last year so working for a REAL plumbing and heating firm will be great :D

    Even with a contract you can still walk out immediately without consequences.
    Stating that you have a family emergency !!
    And in part , this is true . As if you damage
    Your reputation then you damage your ability to
    Provide for them !
    I left my last job for this very reason and no action could be taken against me .
    And they thought their contract was water tight
    Best of luck ,
    look after yourself because not many bosses will look after you !!
