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.

    snap - and mash it in the pan with a fork leaving lumps in it, finely chopped onions stirred in too - you can make it and freeze portions if you're short on time

    Try deglazing the liver and onion pan with a dry sherry or a glass of port and use the juices to make a gravy, if you like a really rich gravy try stirring in a bit of cream.

    It’s funny. I can eat boiled, roast, baked, chips, sliced with cheese on. But I couldn’t eat mash to save my life

    Used to when I was a kid but I really couldn’t eat mash without being sick:shrug:

    Don’t know what happened

    I like both proper mash and instant but if instant it has to be sainsburys potato powder sold in boxes as I can't stand the granules or flakes .

    I steam my spuds(a large pan size full),add some salt,butter and milk then grate 3/4 block of cathedral city mature into it and whisk it in till its melted into the mash,transfer to a large pyrex baking dish then grate the other 1/4 of cheese on top n stick it in oven for 20/30 mins till the cheese on tops just turned crusty and serve with either a bunch of salad or sausage and beans......
    Must also admit to putting mash on a sandwich like @snipperuk when having stew n mash and dipping said sandwich in the stew.

    Chopped up and crispy smoked streaky bacon, and melt a big knob of proper butter in a pan with a teaspoon of curry powder in it before you mash it all together. :)

    Frozen mash is bland & tasteless, you can cheer them up with salt, butter, salt, wholegrain mustard, salt, sweet potato, salt, onion, salt................You get the idea.
    I remember Cadbury's Smash being launched, and it should have been. Speaking of launch................
