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.

    Can't believe that people bicker over a bloody hedge, what a waist of life,

    is the argument about who's cutting it, or who's not!!

    My neighbour is hardly there as he spends most of his time at his girlfriends house. He has a very large tree that blocks some of our splendid view and also wrecks our lawn.
    He has never cut it back in all the years he has been there.
    2 years ago the tree fairies came and cut it right back, he wasn't particularly happy. They are due for another visit soon i think..

    Oh , I could do pages on this ! Mine are noisey, lazy , cruel to their dog and allow their kids to sceam and shout at 5.30 am ! I have had to phone loan companies to tell them they live next door and it took some sorting to get my credit rating back ! I've had debt collectors visit over a loan for her sister that doesn't even live with them !:mad:

    I just have this small amout of hope that they move one day , I moved to the middle of nowhere for a reason !

    Legally you can cut any branches that over hang your border, as said above you can also deposit them back on the land they belong to, as long as you don't throw them over and do any damage. Don't ask me how i know :D

    When we moved into our current place a few years back (its a cul de sac of 4 houses) we had a brief experience of the local politics. I arrived home from work one evening to find my wife being "talked too" by the woman from the end house. She was literally lecturing her on all the problem neighbours. I kept interjecting that we both had to go out but she just wouldn't shut up.

    Well eventually she left and the impression we got was that there was indeed a problem with the neighbours and she was it.

    The main problem was with the parking space (on our land) which was a visitors spot. She told us about the problems they'd had and that it was "our" space. Then her husband parked there every night until they moved. In a moment of beautiful poetry some vandals broke into his car whilst parked there and stole his laptop. Shame. Not had any troubles since.

    Since they left we've been blessed with brilliant neighbours. We even held a party for a new lawn!

    I have great neighbours, Pakistani family one side who are more like my own family to us than my real family, teachers renting the other side who are wonderful (I did pee Matt off a little last night, lost track of time doing some DIY after 10pm but he's okay after an apology), The other neighbours come around and cut their own bushes and trees back so they don't overhang!

    For a rough inner city area I don't think life is too bad living here at the moment!

    Unless there's a tree preservation order on them in which case you can't touch them even if they do overhang...

    I wish I could stop my neighbours young "20s" daughter from sunbathing in the nude where I can see her if I stand on a chair in my bedroom and stretch. I am old and it's not doing my legs any good at all.
