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.

  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.

    My mum kicked me out yesterday lol, im 24 so i think fair doos!... so i found somewhere to live on short notice. Staying in a caravan up on a farm in the blackdown hills, theres some obvious downsides to that but on the upside i have shooting rights to the rabbits n stuff on the land & very cheap rent. My 3 theobens came with me and are i've even got a nice little lockable cupboard for them! I need to get myself a camera as i would love to show you guys the view of the land i have up here... its stunning & theres bunnies everywhere. Pouring, Pouring, Pouring with rain at the moment so havent had chance to get out. My interent access is a bit hit and miss so im not sure if i will be able to get on the forum as much but will try my best so long as the wireless has got good signal.Cheers Rob

    24 and still at home, no wonder she threw you out ;) i was shown the door at 7 years old and forced to work down the mine as a pit pony, i was then forced into marriage at 10 and divorced at 12........i`m now 44 years old and although i still like the odd nibble on a nice bit of straw (old habits you know)i can safely say i`m knackered....

    Well my mum has wanted me to move out for a while, not had the money to get a place of my own so i just pay'd my way at home. Relations with my mum's new bloke got pretty bad and that why i had to go.. Luckily my dear old nan lives up on the farm here and owns the caravan so she did me a big favour in renting it out to me. I have got transport in the form of a moped lol & its around 8 miles from where my mates and my jobs are so its not to bad. Hopefully can use the caravan as a stepping stone to a place of my own or a house share or sumin.. will see how it goes. For now though i am looking forward to getting back to my roots with a gas ram rifle and some camo gear :D

    i lived in a caravan for 6months one summer at a farm on the banks of the Tyne

    bliss - nobody except friends knew where i was - no poll tax, no phone, no elect bills - free as a bird

    and free trout for dinner

    dont be in a rush to burden yourself down with rent and bills

    although i suppose winter may be a bitch.................:eek:

    Lucky sod. I lived on a boat for a year (with my then girlfriend/now wife) so I can harken back to that cosy, self-contained vibe.

    Photos when you get a chance :)

    hello that happens quite often but i can say by what you tell maybe a good thing to be your own boss, and hear your nan by there too:up: , not far to job and see friends and your shooting, you will be a happy man. then maybe your future will be even more.

    so true ...some people realise and appreciate that less is more

    I really dont need a 5bedroom house with a garage full of discarded crap from my spoilt sprogs...HAHA

    so live a single recluse life in a small stone cottage on a farm ... not for everyone but sure is for me..!!

    ps dream has always been to live on a boat [an Alberg 38] back in my adopted country of Canada

    sobs in beer...........

    John, I'd go back to living on a boat at the drop of a hat, no question. However I think the reality's getting a decent Transit, doing a camper conversion on it and hoping it floats.
