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.

    My weeks isolation ends this Saturday and i can think of no better way of celebrating than diving head first into a banging ruby . Obviously the take away option is out of the question for the time being & i don't fancy spending 6 hours cooking one myself so i've sort of set my mind on the supermarket/ brand name " best ever " cook at home meal. Within driving distance i have Sainsbury, Tesco, Marks & Sparks & Waitrose. Can someone recommend the best quality meal for 2 please.

    I hate to break it to you but isolation is currently 3 weeks!

    The M&S stuff isn't bad I suppose!

    Takeaways are still operating, and I'd have thought this the perfect solution if your symptoms are gone and you have done the isolation in full?

    Sorry, forgot to mention it'll be me & the wife on Sat with the possibility of my daughters coming for food. I think the risk of someone else getting infected from take away food is just too high atm.

    I was about to suggest M+S but noticed the separate households, which mean you or they cannot visit each other during the lockdown

    Self isolation being you "cant go out at all" 3 week isolation meaning you just "cant go out"

    Big difference then LOL!

    Not sure what your point is. I've been in self isolation for a week. There is no 3 week isolation?

    the current lockdown which is to be reviewed after 3 weeks means we cannot leave home except to do one of the following - an essential shop, go to work, get medicine or medical care or one exercise like walking or running that does not involve driving - nothing else

    the 7 day self isolation is what we should all do if we have symptoms like a cough and means not leaving home under any circumstance

    also, those in the vulnerable category should not leave home for any reason for 12 weeks

    Sorry Telbert, you do need to get up to speed with what’s happening, it is quite important.

    Everyone now stays put, no visiting, not even family for 3 weeks.

    As above, get a takeaway for yourself and the Mrs, the kids should not be visiting if they live elsewhere, it's all about slowing down the infection which is transmitted person to person - hence isolation and not mixing or meeting households.

    Go for a walk if you want, just stay 1.5m back from other people where possible, but meeting for dinner is a definite error :oops:

    Sorry all for the confusion. I've had a very long day doing not very much. In my mind there was still the possibility of one or both daughters coming down :facepalm:.
    Anyway, any curry recommendations please for just me & the missus?
    Apologies again, I'm not used to having all this spare time.:D

    telbert, I used to do a weekly shop in a M+S SimplyFood and they had a very good indian ready meal selection of starters, mains and sides which could be mixed and matched into meal deals, which means you can get different courses/sides for you and the missus and neither of you have to cook - they were also good quality and tasted good

    they were in the chilled food bit, with a bottle of vino you can't go wrong

    I think self isolation is 2 weeks if you live with your wife.
