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.

    Andy, so sorry to hear your news, and what a shame it couldn't have been sorted earlier - I'm keeping everything crossed for you. In the meantime, keep shooting us silly b*****s down in flames - it's almost as good as the real thing:up:

    I think it's all been said Andy, but good luck with any treatment you have.
    I really do hope you can continue with your shooting, but just to give you hope I'll tell you this. A couple of weekends ago Jenny and I shot a Charity Shoot and one of the highest scores was shot by a guy who only had one arm, one was amputated after a car smash. It was amazing how he handled a shotgun at all but his aim was tremendous. It just shows how, with the right determination, it possible to overcome almost anything. The main thing is for your constant pain to be removed or at least drastically reduced, that alone will no doubt make your quality of life much better. We all have our fingers crossed.

    A few of you have asked, so......I go under the knife 10th October, there operating on my left arm first and my right arm at a later date, to release the nerve that's giving me so much pain and cramps.:)

    Up date

    A member asked me in the Aigun section, I replied befor realising I had gone off topic :eek:...so I have pasted onto here:D

    I have carpal tunnel in both arms, had a hop, on my left arm, but no marked improvement yet, went to see a nerve specialist last Friday, only got that appointment cos the misses kicked off (about me being messed about) has I had, had 4 canceled appointments since my hop..He reckons it takes a quarter of an inch each week, (from the site of the hop, the elbow)for the nerve to reach the hand and recover, if at all...Ive had to put wrist braces on both hands.....

    :eek:PS Andy sorry about going off topic, but a question was asked and I replied, I will move the post when, the above member replies.:up::D

    I am not expert but i have heard that carpal tunnel syntrome it apears when a concrete moovment is made . Ιs common in athletes and pc users ! I am sure that the nerve spesialist will tell you what must make to avoid further comblications. My advice shoot only airguns and leave the shotguns:) ! Sorry for off topic writing . Xristos.
