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. 

    To close this message box, click on the 'X' in the top-right-hand corner.

  4. Hotmail block emails from us entering your inbox. Unless you can setup a safe sender you will not get activation emails from the forum. Please use an alternative provider or complain to Hotmail.
    Hotmail addresses include.

  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.

    This is probably for us old fogies, do you have a favourite old tv programme that doesn't come on any more you really miss. I'm a bit of a saddo I suppose, I used to love Spender with Jimmy Nail, you can't even buy it on DVD, i've tried. :(

    Even more sad when I was young I never watched Ironside first time round, now i'm watching them on ITV3 and loving it. :D:D

    I'm a bit of an old film buff too. My favourite film is Goodbye Mr Chips with Robert Donat and Greer Garson. Would love to know what you like and miss :up:

    Even more sad just realised how much I miss The Onedin Line

    I can think of a few boys programmes I really liked but don't see anymore,
    The Virginian, starring james Dury and Doug McClure
    Alias Smith & Jones, can't remember who starred in that, both cowboy type series,
    Kung Fu with David Carradine,
    these used to be essential viewing for me as a kid,

    I do remember Van der Valk but not really one I was into.
    Just to show my age I loved Bill & Ben, then there's Andy Pandy, The Herbs, Magic Roundabout, Chigley and Trumpton definitely essential viewing, top of my list, The Clangers !

    One I'm surprised is not on your list Moo is Poldark, wsn't that about the same time as Onedin Line ?

    Oliver Postage, top filmaker cartoon maker what a CV he must have, don't make them like that anymore, all you get is crap like tellytossers, hoobs and The Tweenies, (I really hate the tweenies with a vengeance, so much so if I was muslim I'd have to have a jihad on them:violent4:) and rest of the junk kids programmes they put on today.
    I do so like Thomas The Tank Engine though :D

    Warning CONTROVERSIAL BIT in post may cause divided opinion and a jihad on me!

    I've never heard of it mate sorry, but then I really don't like musicals,
    CONTROVERSIAL BIT
    I totally dislike Grease, Saturday Night Fever and the such like, load of crap, and before you ask have I seen them, Yes I Have, my wife loves them and I've endured them so many times I could tear my hair out (what's left). I just hate musicals in general, the only one I can watch is Paint Your Wagon.
    Don't really even know why I don't like musicals, weird 'ol me.
    My wife loves all of them her favourites being Doris Day ones, I don't mind her watching them at all she really enjoys them, for me though it's torture. ;)

    Waiting to be :flame:

    Oliver Postage Rules OK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'd forgot Ivor The Engine, now that's childrens tv as it should be

    Thanks for reminding me off Oliver Postage Moo, his name at the end of the credits was like a seal of quality, I've also been trying to think of a signiature, think I'll use

    Oliver Postage Rules, others just suck !

    What do you think, it will only make sense to people with exquisite taste in tv

    That was good, futuristic where people only lived to about 40 before going through a ceremony called "Carousel". No one over 40 cos Carousel was death sentence, Logan worked that out and went on the run with Jessica pursued by "police". Cant remember what the term was for them, but escapees were "Runners".
    Great series, now and again you can see the film on something like TCM on Sky, worth a watch.

    Forgot Planet of the Apes, but I don't remember Robinson Crusoe in b&w though.
