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.

    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.

    Thanks for all of the MERO V1.0.7 comments and suggestions.
    Please keep 'em coming.

    The new MERO version (V1.0.8) includes many of those suggestions to include a selection of popular Mil-dot/MoA/BCD reticles, a custom table mechanism, more graphs, an improved scope-cap scheme and many other incidental odds and sods.
    Available from *** here ***, there are versions available for Windows, MacOS and 32/64-bit Linux as usual.

    MERO V1.0.8 also includes a new/updated version of the GA drag law (predictably named as GA₂) derived from Ballisticboy's work. Many thanks to him for that. :up:

    I've also included the GA₂ drag law in those of my applicable Android apps (MERO, EasyBC, MaxRange, Trajic, KECalc, Validate and WindCalc) and incremented their version descriptors accordingly.
    These are available from my web-space *** here *** or my DropBox *** here ***

    On a related topic, I've enhanced the EasyBC app to operate with elapsed time-to-target (∆T) measurement while retaining the existing ∆V and ∆POI methods. I didn't include the ∆T method originally because I thought it unlikely that at the average shooter/experimenter would have access to recording equipment accurate enough but it seems that I was mistaken. Audacity is available for free on all of the Win/MacOS/Linux platforms and, although it only resolves to 1 millisecond, is well up to the job if set up carefully ... giving very similar results to the ∆V method. A lot less chance of shooting the down-range chronograph too. :(

    Constructive criticism and suggestions are as welcome as ever.

    George

    A very nice piece of work, I've got to say it does pretty much everything I need, well may be... :)

    Nice to hear, I'll be downloading the updated version on my Linux laptop tomorrow when I escape spending valentines with the Mrs :facepalm:

    I'm thoroughly impressed you did this cross platform by the way, Linux users are always left out in the cold with stuff.

    Cheers Joe. :)
    If anything else springs to mind ... well, there's always V1.0.9. ;)

    I'm something of a Linux noob and consequently the Linux version is a teeny weeny bit different to the Windoze and MacOS versions. Nothing major but the Linux user isn't given the choice of background colours ... I've tried and tried (and tried some more) but I just can't make it work consistently across the various Linux distros. Maybe (hopefully) the feature will surface in V1.0.9. :up:

    I've been using Linux in some form on and off for about 24 years now.. Still learning it's not as easy to use as some other OS' for sure.. My favourites were DOS and NT4 they were solid.
