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.

    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.

  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.

    Ok just got back from the pub quiz ..... it wasnt pretty lol

    We left the house around 7.30pm and i had a positive mental attitude. I thought " yeah this will be ok " ... except i forgot to engage the brain :)

    Got to the pub ..... table quiz while you wait for everyone to turn up ....... yep know that one and that one ... hmm not sure... no ... no ..... no ..... never heard of that !

    Anyway luckily i was teamed up with the wife , daughter and her boyfriend ..... and so it begins Round 1 General Knowledge .....

    Well talk about either brain freeze or just plain thickness ! i reckon i answered about 2 out of 10 !

    Fast forward to the final Round 10 ..... yes it was a blur like that for me too !

    It just surprises me that i left school some 30 ish years ago and have seen such a lot in life and thought that i had taken onboard some information but it just would not click. Things that i should of remembered just were not in there . Maybe the humdrum of my past 30 odd years of work where i just need to pay the bills and look after the family etc so not worried about the things out of my world and that they dont matter !

    Lesson learnt ...... and training the brain for September Quiz :)

    We play every Wed at our local and you've either got one of those 'recall' brains or your haven't. Deductive reasoning is rarely employed. I was delighted one night to be joined by an old friend, an Oxford graduate with more degrees than a thermometer, and he was useless. If it wasnt about theology or Rugby Union he didn't have a Scooby.

    I do the one at the Broomfield and some weeks your 'guesses' with be correct and you may even win and some days they're miles off the mark. Mrs gets most answers as she has a head for remembering useless (unless for a quiz) stuff.

    There is a solution! At the Holyhead (for tis there!) on a Wednesday the 'Fun' quiz employs snakes and ladders boards, each one is different, where your correct answers equate to move on that board. So for example, we have answered all 30 questions correctly, and not won. Some people win after answering only a few questions correctly. People can Google all they want, it doesn't mean they'll win.
    On Monday night however, it's regular quiz. But you won't win there either, even with Google, as they same team has won every week for 3 years! They're brilliant, we played against them once and came 2nd but they doubled our score.
