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.

    I haven't got one, i'd really like one but my poor old ma thinks either I would get electrocuted in bed or burn the house down and I have to humour the poor old girl so I huddle in bed with bedsocks and a hot water bottle and sometimes the cat if she is cold as well ;):D

    It doesn't matter with the new ones james..all the ones made in the last few years have to be waterproof by law and I believe they have Earth Leakage Circuit breakers fitted.. That used to be a big fear for a lot of people..what if I spill tea in bed ??...what if I p**s myself whilst drunk??....what if I throw up??

    OK... no laughs, or sniggers,.... as for jokes and comments, I have heard them all,.. BUT,.. me and the missus have a water bed!!!

    Now you have stopped giggling,.... let me tell you, a bed you get a good nights sleep on is worth its weight in gold,... me and my gal both have suffered with 'dodgy' backs,... and the support we get from the water bed is superb!!! It has a small, electric heater element under the mattress which warms the water,.. (runs about 60-80 watts on average, I am told...) We have NEVER woke up with back trouble in the 15 years we have had the bed,.... where as one of us often woke with a 'twinge' in the morning,....

    OK it is a good quality one, (Cost almost a grand 15 years ago,...:eek::eek:) but, touch wood, apart from a bottle of conditioner tipped in it every couple of years, aint cost us a penny since!!!
    I had it checked over by the supplier a couple of years ago,.. {nice gal, blonde, and very helpful...:eek:} and she said she cant see any reason it shouldnt be perfect for another 10-15 years, or so!! so, at something like a £40 - £50 a year average cost, I think it was money well spent!!!! And the feeling of getting into it when it is cold, like this time of year, has to be tried to be believed!!! (any ladies wishing to give it a try, please forward photo,....)
    Seriously, only snag we have found is, my missus likes the temperature warmer than me, and the bed cant be adjusted to independant settings,..{so guess who looses out??}, but if you wake up with a bad back in the morning, see if you cant give one a try, in the long run, it worked out very cost effective for us,... even a medium quality normal bed is £400-£500, and if it lasts 10 years, its done well,..:)o:eek:) only snag is, neither of us wants to get up to make the tea in the morning!!!!!

    Cheers,.. (off to bed,) Fred

    Think if I was you, James, I would want to know why (or how she knows!!) she hates them!!!
    bet you can get them in singles, and, no, you dont need to get the floor re-enforced,... ( the weight is evenly spread, afore anyone asks,,,,!) any normal room/floor is fine,.... just a bit of a pain to move, if you decide to 'flit',......
    If you wanted to really tax me, ask which if these three I would give up last?,... the missus, the water bed, the HW100,.....
    tough call,..... { I can rely on the bed and the gun, EVERY day,......}

    (I just KNOW I am going to be sorry for posting that!!):D:D

    Cheers, Fred
