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.

    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.

    why is it on the bigger forums ive been looking at ive no wish to join another forum bye the way,that so many people send for stuff and the other person keeps the money and doesnt send the stuff,it was not the odd case but quite a few on one of the bigger forums,is it because we are a smaller forum and all get on so well that it doesnt happen here,ive got to say i wouldnt take it lying down if i sent some one a load of cash and they didnt send my gear,i think some people just join some forums build a bit of a rep up and then do it ,its a sad thing when a mans word is not his bond isnt it.

    James, I can't tell you why some people feel they have the right to do this, but like you I do know it happens. Unless there has been some late breaking news I don't know about, I only know of one such instance here and I still hope I can get to the bottom of it, though I'm certainly not holding my breathe. On another forum I follow, for model aircraft anf helis, members frequently send things out for free, members frequently have goods and payment pass in the post, even internationally, such is the trust there and I have to say with the vast majority of members here I would feel safe doing the same.

    i had it happen to me on bbs a few months back bought a lamp sent him a postal order special delivery. he claimed he never recived it tho it was tracked and had a signiture. he done it to a few people. i aint ever ripped no one off and i dint like it done to me. i got my money back after a lot of hassel and got the police involved. left the forum and will never go back on it again. its the fact that every one is all into the same hobbie and the fact that a fellow lover of the hobbie rips another off is out of order. should all be named and shamed

    Hey up guy's

    just would like to say that, james seems to pretty much hit the nail on the head, and that last line in your sentence is absolute true, but it's more then a pity when "A mans word is not his his bond" it really is a sad place
