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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

There probably scared of their boss and tneir wife so when they come on here they feel like real men and its probably the only time they feel like that ..... but how have people talked down to you if you have only made one post

    don't be so hasty! there are some plonkers on all sites. There are a lot of members who are more than helpful about various things,EG tuning , accuracy etc. So pleases don't judge everyone the same . Give it another try and honestly there are some great guys only willing to help you, for shame on the numpties who think they are better than anyone else , surely we should be welcoming new members not making them leave!!!!

    are you confusing this forum with the darkside as i know you are a member on there too and with only one post my friend i fail to understand how you have been talked doen too unless it was done so privately.
    you will always have keyboard warriors and know it alls who think they are better than everyone else but that is true of all forums, you just have to take no notice of them .

    This is your first post. How is it possible that any one has talked down to you on here? And no need to de-activate your account because you, yes you are in control. This is how you do it: you don't log on here and you remove the forum web page from your favourites. See how easy that is. This is a great forum and really useful with plenty of reviews and some great help and info. So please do recommend it to others.

    No offence to banksy if this is a genuine post, but it reminds me very much of one on a land rover forum a couple of years back. First post was a delete account request which was followed by hundreds of pages of bile from irate forum members who had a go at him. All entirely what he intended I'm sure.

    Banksy - if you are genuine, my apologies, but stick around as this has always been a very friendly and helpful forum. Im also a member of the 'other forum', which used to be really nasty, but in fairness that's calmed way down over the last couple of years and is fine now (or I'm as bad as the rest of them!)

    I wasn't talking down to him like a 2 year old. I was thinking maybe a 4 yr old? For throwing his teddies out of the cot. :rolleyes:
