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 missus suggested we watch a Xmas movie tonight. Not wanting to be a grump I said go on then.
    So, the 3 of us (includes 20 year old daughter) sit down to watch the "Xmas movie" as suggested.
    It is right up everyone else's street, definetly not my cup of tea.
    It's on Netflix and called "Jingle Jangle".
    A musical that is trying to tug at heart strings.
    More vino plonko needed.
    Only thing keeping me sane is diving into the forums.
    Oh the agony.

    The songs are pre-recorded and the lip sync makes it look like a Chinese film with English dubbed over the top.
    Bah humbug, come back only fools and horses

    My wife has the decency to pause whatever crap she’s watching in the living room when I enter. Gives me the chance to exit gracefully as we both know I’ll hate it, comment on it, and unintentionally ruin it for her.

    Ahh so it is a wife thing! I’ve never understood how my Mrs can watch the most awful films and tv programs. I see it as wasting my life so she doesn’t put it on around me

    My Mrs took a liking to Korean and Chinese soap type stuff about a year ago - and unfortunately, Netflix has hundreds of them - she presently has it in her head that I have agreed to watch the Korean Oscar winning film, Parasite, with her - subtitles are just too much like hard work imho. The things we do for love - or is that a quiet life and feeding!

    I think it’s a woman thing, Mrs Jaisalmere watches the most dreadful dross , the dinner party carp, the b&b carp, and the worst carp of all Strictly, it seems the more patronising and vom inducing a program is, the better they like them, this is why men have sheds

    Mrs I has control of the remote every weekday between 1900&2000 so she can indulge in East Coronation Farm or some such nonsense, small price to pay for domestic harmony and I get to watch rugby this afternoon instead of Bargain Hunt - bargain!

    Mrs Owl loves a fair few Christmas films but luckily her favourite, and the one she insists I watch with her, is Die Hard. There is a .!

    Our lass has been watching Christmas films for a few weeks now! Her fave - and I must confess I'm not averse to sitting and watching - is Polar Express.
    It also ticks the 'being in the same room' box...
