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.

    Never watched it, just think all programs like this are hype and stretch an hours program over multiple series, if they ever find anything it would be leaked long before program got to air.

    First read about this story over 30 years ago, and have watched all the series so far.... still amazed that with all the tech today, they still cant find out what the heck is down there.

    Was talking to a mate about this last night who's an archaeologist and he was laughing like a drain ... although interesting, the amount of damage the bunch of treasure hunters has done means that nowt they find will prove anything. His opinion is that the only 'money pit' is the island itself that the brothers are sinking needless millions into, whilst spoiling a beautiful place. If he ran a dig the way this is being done, he would've been out of the job almost immediately !

    This is on our "History Channel". I never watched Oak Island because #1. I don't understand what they are trying to do. #2. It looks boooooring. They do have a show called "Pickers", which I do watch. They also show a lot of WWII shows...in fact, when they started, many years ago, it was known as the "Hitler Channel".

    Love it, haven't got sky tv but been watching it on blaze or what ever it is called now (can't keep up with all the channel name changes).

    I get annoyed with the idiot who narrates it and repeats himself a lot and the muppets who edit the show but I do love a good treasure hunt.

    I enjoy the show, but I really don't think there is a treasure. I think the old ex-slave found and spent that loot way back.

    The latest series is just starting.... I've watched over the past 2 years and find it very interesting.
    There's obviously something going on but what.... The brothers will have to spend a few more million to find out

    It's all very very intriguing, flood channels in smiths cove with all the other wooden structures .....

    Looking forward to seeing what they find in the swamp and the extension of the coffer dam.

    I have yet to see any sign of a flood tunnel. I think the place is just a pile of fractured rock and the water flows in on it's own. I think I'd actually like the show to have a lot more of the guy with the metal detector.
