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.

  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.

    As some of you know, I've started a small business making affordable drop-in tuning kits available for next day delivery. Despite knowing next to nothing about t'interweb and all that elektrickery stuff, with a little help from my friends I've got a website up and running.

    Its by no means complete, I can't figure how to put pictures on the slider and there's not much content yet. But if you could take a peak and come back with any thoughts or ideas I'd really appreciate it.:)

    www.airrifletuning.com

    btw, don't buy a kit from there. I do special rates for forum members and donate £1 for every sale done here!;)

    Hope you don't mind some constructive criticism . The animated gif or JPEG or whatever of the ( think its a hw97) when viewed on my iPad as it moves it makes the page jump and as a result the text jumps and is distracting to the point that you're waiting for the jump as you read the page. A bit like waiting for a little shock. Also it would be nice to see a pic of the kit on the front page. I think Steve popes venom site gives a good example of this. Apart from that it's looking good mate.

    Nice one mate! My TX200 MKIII hasn't been touched inside since it left the factory in about 2003 and I've always been happy with it....but I'm tempted by your kit!

    As for your web site - more of the same - keep it clean and simple and only add stuff that NEEDS adding - less really is more.

    Most importantly - all the very best of luck with your new business :up:

    Well done !

    I was fooling with one of your kits :up: earlier this evening but kept getting interrupted by clients calling :(

    Using Wordpress as a CMS for a plain website brings its own challenges - it's a wonderful example of Open Source programming but you are basically asking it to be a website CMS instead of a blogging tool.

    There are a few excellent plugins that help you along with this.

    Putting my day job hat on (thanks for that :rolleyes: ) I would suggest you lose the top bar and search field until you have some site navigation and enough content to search. It's a pet hate of mine putting usability functions in front of people with nothing for them to key onto, but I'm being picky.

    Your image slider degrades very well on (proper ;) ) mobile devices - it collapses the content area when no image rotates, which desktop browsers don't do.

    Going back to the various Wordpress plugins, these basically force Wordpress to be a page editor rather than a post editor and to further distance yourself from the whole blog theme you might want to disable user comments on your page content, unless you want to receive feedback of course.

    One small step for man...

    Well done for getting it off the ground. Now it's down to keeping the momentum going.

    It looks like you have plenty of help on hand but you know where I am...

    :D

    I think the old meteors would benefit from one of these kits. Any plans?

    Yes, with the right info, or preferably the actual piston in my hand, I can make them for any spring gun. Have a Hatsan piston in for testing after Easter, but I'd welcome any others too!

    @JD. When you're making parts for tuning air rifles, there's only so many combinations of those words available for a domain name.
