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.

    No James, you're not on your own I get them occasionally and Jenny gets them frequently. We've been prescribed a tablet that seem to work great...I think it's called "metaclopromide" without actually going to look. In itself it doesn't cure the migrane, you have to take asprin 15 to 30 minutes after and then things start to improve. Jenny gets the sparkles and the upset gut..comlete bag o' mashings, I usually just get a thumping head ache, painful eyes and the day after a head that feels like it was kicked round the playground all dinner time.

    A few years ago the doctor gave Jenny some new tablets. She came home from work in the middle of the day because she had a migraine coming on. She took one of the new tablets and after about 15 minutes started feeling quite peculiar. She lost the use of her legs but luckily she had the phone at the side of her on the sofa. She phoned me at work and by the time I got home...about 20 minutes...she was completely blind. I called an ambulance which arrived in very short order and they gave her an injection to counteract the tablet. They said it happened frequently with that particular drug. Some people are OK with it, but it affects some very badly.
    Are yours the one where you have to take one colour before you get the migrain and the other colour when you've got it, 'cos they really are crap.

    Just checked with Jenny...the dodgy one was Immigran...your one maybe is Migraleve ??

    I get the jagged lights and patterns and stuff but no headache and no sickness. Mine is caused purely by milk chocolate. Dark chocolate is OK, white chocolate is OK but milk chocolate is out. It's a b****r if yer driving cozz you can't see a bloody thing.

    You get a kind of tunnel vision with all of these jagged lights around the edges and it's really difficult to drive whilst it's happening. After a while it goes onto the other eye and then it disappears just as quick as when it started. The worst thing for me is Chunky KitKat. I don't know what it's got in it but there is something nasty lurking in there. Shame really cozz I love them...!
