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.

  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 used to go to the Midland game fair a lot in the past. But it was all about the Dogs back then and If I’m honest I got quite bored of them. In my opinion they became very expensive and
    commercialised. However with my new interest in Airguns, I’m quite looking forward to this years event. Will any of you be going, what can I expect airgun wise?
    All the Best. Dougie

    It's not the best for airgunning and you will be severely disappointed if you do and think otherwise.
    It's a decent day out though with loads of field sports and field craft stuff.
    I'm going this year and getting the missus to drive and I'm gonna get hammered on the free alcohol that seems to be at every other stall :D

    I’ll give it a whirl, if it’s crap I’ll swerve it for another 10 or 15 years.

    Free alcohol? You mean that whiskey in Honey with the ice stuff? Eww! That’s enough to keep any man at bay.

    Went there 15 years on the trot camping at first then caravan.
    It’s now the best part of £300 to stay on site, entry for 2 days x 2 plus diesel for the truck, so about £375 for me and wife before anything to eat, and I’m bug—-red if ill pay £5 for a hot dog.
    Countryman fairs have ruined the once fantastic game fair

    I'll be there as I'm shooting, my other half might be coming (I hope so as the sodding hotel hotel is paid for!) but I'm looking forward to it. I've never been to a game fair before, never shot anything as big as this before, so it should be good!

    Yeah..anybody staying overnight for the Game Fair and wants to come and have a shoot at an awesome range on the Saturday, then Blackbrook is about 30 minutes down 1 road, near enough, and is a great place to have a plink.
