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.

    hello, just thought to ask as above if any forum member has had the same experience or am i the only one to purchase from the internet/ebay shooting or other items from reputable companies, payed and told it has been posted but it never arrives. with ebay you have redress to get a refund after a time limit but for me i want what i purchased, there is no excuse for not having all posting details and myself if it is sent royal mail i can visit the sort office if the company wishes. my recent purchase a jack pike item off ebay from a glasgow shooting store, free post 2nd class up to 5 days to recieve, after 2 weeks nothing 3 weeks same declared lost and refunded. but this has happened 4 times in as many months so what is going on??????????????

    I have had a few like that off the bay recently. Not everything but some stuff! I am worried that eBay would think I am making it up and wouldn't look good opening a case for 1in3 items bought. Never happened to me before but has happened a few times recently.

    Sellers have issued a refund but reluctant to buy from 'individuals' off there just in case.

    I check ratings are above 98% for sellers on ebay and have only ever had issues with an item ordered from the USA. That eventually turned up after a couple of back and forths between me and the seller. Just a long time in transit I assume.

    I had a similar experience for a number of months last year, speaking to someone from the inside I was old that postmen have had their hours cut to part time - 26 hours a week at most, their mail and round are sorted by agency staff to cut down on their hours, they are constantly scratching for overtime to make ends meet and are becoming desperate, after all who can survive on a part time wage in a job with hours that would make taking a second job almost impossible!

    Not the only reason mail goes missing but I'm told it's a huge contributing factor.

    My mail delivery has consistently been good since we have had a regular postie after the bad spell last year, before it was a different face everyday - go figure!

    Another huge contributing factor is crap online sellers, eBay in particular have some terrible culprits - I received an aerosol yesterday as part of a two pack midge treatment set and one of the cans was almost totally empty, cost me £6 for the two cans and the sellers reply was 'I'll only refund you a pound', knowing full well that I will have to return the empty offending can and the second one at my expense (under eBay T&C's) for a refund - what other recourse do I have except for negative feedback - which eBay often remove for some unknown reason!

    The site hasn't just gone to the dogs, it's been totally consumed by them and what is left is coming from it's rear end.
