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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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've never really went hunting for rabbits, so could you enlighten me on what mixy is and what it does? I have heard of it before but don't know exactly what it is.

    mixy = a man made form of a sexually transmitted disease for rabbits, also passed on by a flea biting an infected rabbit and then biting another rabbit.
    it has a high mortality rate and as such whole areas can become completly devoid of all rabbits.

    first used in the fifties in austraila and now used widely in northen Europe by unscrupulous people who need to control rabbit numbers.

    problem is once it is out, there is no control over it or how it will spread:mad:

    all the more reason to be an airgunner or small game hunter. I hope it never comes to the U.S., if it hasn't already.

    Mixy is a bad thing for the rabbits but at the same time its a good thing for us airgunners, because the harder the mixy hits them the harder they hit back sometimes the population will double so we will have more to shoot!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i went cycling down to the sand quarry, cycling up sand dunes...not as easy as it looks, going down them is fun though...anyway my point is i saw a rabbit so that means numbers are on the rise again.

    :D

    about 8 years ago, when i was on holiday in ireland for 6 weeks there was a huge rabbit problem near the beach. every night i could see someone lamping but apparently there were way to many for just one man to handle. this is no lie but the rabbit population was in the thousands, no matter how hard they were lamped it hardly touched them. until mixy got 'em. i remember one day i was going down the beach and to get there i had to walk across where all the rabbit warrens were, i tell you, i have .never seen so many dead rabbits in my life, it was unbelieveable.

    since mixy hit them you are lucky to see one rabbit at all.
