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.

    '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 just renewed my contract with o2, I was due for an upgrade phone too. They let me had have my upgrade but they said I could not have my 12 month contract renewed, I had to sign up for 18 months because of the credit crunch they can't afford to upgrade phones every year. I went ahead and did it because I love my phone so much I got another one the same as my upgrade (nokia 6500 slide) so if my current one breaks I now have a spare but it's hard to get anyone to give you a phone and a 12 month contract now

    I believe this is called a christmas bonus. What they are doing is differring your upgrade for 3 months, they are saying we will knock £10 a month off for 3 months without putting you back in contract then when christmas is out of the way they will look at removing the £10 discount and offering you a phone instead. If you really do need a phone right now (check my profile, I train staff for T-mobile) call back and speak to a differant advisor, if you get the same info again, chances are they really cant offer you a phone at this point. some advisors (the ones i trained ! lol) will offer you all the options without any bias. Make sure you stress you urgently need a phone rather than a discount (or both if possible) Be nice! (unless the person you are speaking to is genuinley obnoxious, a bit of kindness will go a huge way towards them bending over backwards to give you the moon!, it isnt there fault and a polite nice customer is who they will try to help the most.

    I have a contract because I text a lot, the cheapest I have found is o2, I get unlimited texts and now as well as 600 minutes a month, I never use all the minutes

    With the amount of mobile phones spuriously reported 'lost' to our Enquiry Desks every day, all seem to be newly acquired, I'm amazed that phone companies still offer decent deals.
