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.

    '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.

    I own two XML-T6 variants and highly rate them and just wondered if anyone else has the same issue as me:

    my model has 5 settings, brightness 1,2,3 then a flashing/strobe mode and a morse code setting.

    Every time I come to use it on the highest power setting,I have to cycle through every other mode to get back to the highest power,say if I have it on high power mode,switch it off,when I turn it back on it will now be on the second mode so i have to cycle through third,flashing and the morse code to get back to high power mode,are they all like this?

    Matty,

    All my Cree torches all come back onto the same mode when I switch them back on unless I cycle it fast through the different modes, I would hazard a guess you have a faulty one.

    Depends on who makes the torches, Cree is just the make of the LED of course.

    I have some by Olight and Fenix, each are different. Some come back onto the setting you last had it on.

    This is a torch specific setting. I've had a couple form different manufacturers and they were set up differently. The CREE is the type of LED used, nothing to do with the way it works.

    The settings are all in the driver and the 5 mode low/med/high/strobe/SOS is the 'standard' fitting. You can replace the driver with one that suits your requirements, the types that I normally use are single mode (full power) or 3 mode (high/med/low) - these are for the ir/red/green leds which run at a lower current.
    The white light torches which use either the Cree XML T6 or XML U2 led draw higher currents and can run at up to 3 amps on full power. The spec sheet for the manufacturer states that the output at this current is a little over 1000 lumens so the sellers claims for 1600/1800/2000 are a long way out. I have modified a few white torches and always fit a pill which has improved heat dissipation as at 3 amps there is a lot of heat produced. The drivers available as a sensible replacement can often be programmed to suit the user's requirements and they do often have 'last mode memory' so that they come back on in the mode you were last using.
    It is useful to have some power adjustment as you often don't need the full power which will eat up the batteries quite quickly but the various flashing modes are really only useful if you intend to get lost.

    I had an ultrafire that worked exactly like this, it was a full press of the button to switch on/off, and a half press to change modes. The problem being that the full press to switch off also counted as a half press that advances the mode by one. I just binned it and got a sunwayman which is perfect, simple on/off, fully variable power and no silly flashing modes at all.
