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.

    What do you mean it closes down (do you mean your browser closes down) and at what point does this happen.
    Does it happen when you load the form or when you submit the form.

    A simple question can you change my user name or not Andy, no more smart remarks off people, this is a serious request if it can't be done just say so , I've told you every time I click on what you have said it closes my computer down, I'm not bothered what it does for other people I'm telling you what it does to me , I leave it in your hands you're a moderator you're supposed to be able to help people aren't you , I thank you

    I did try to help you, but if you cannot give me the answer to my question above then how can I help you. When someone says something is not working then I need to find out why it's not working to be able to fix it. without the user giving me detailed information on the problem leaves me with no idea what to do to fix it.:confused:
    I have tested the form in Firefox, IE, & Chrome using registered user test accounts and I can not duplicate your error. Many users have used the same type of form to list guns for sale in the sales section, I have not had anyone report it as not working so far. Have you tried using another browser to load the form to see if it's a browser problem. ?
    If it's closing your computer down then you have a problem with your computer or software. All name changes must now be done via the form, so we have a record of who was who.

    Christ James! who nicked the jam out'a your dougnut? chill out fella it was just a bit of banter! Changing your name is not really worth spitting the dummy over is it?
    I think Andy does more than enough to help people me included and don't really think he deserved that!.

    For one thing I never spit my dummy out at any time, I had a bad night last night and had to give some one a slap for his cheek, that put me in a bad mood to have to do that , I shouldn't have come on the forum last night when feelings were running high and I wouldn't have acted in the manner I did , as for taking the jam out of my doughnut, I wish I could have a doughnut to have the jam taking out of, firstly I will say sorry to Andy for not describing the problem properly, then I will say sorry to anyone on here that I may have upset , there is no excuse for my behaviour and I will not do it again thanks

    No need to apologise to me James...we all know you're going through a stressful time at the moment with the diet. If you can't vent a bit of frustration on here then where can you?
    Stick with the diet - it will get easier as time goes by I'm sure. :up:
