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.

    Is petrol as expensive where you live as it is in Colchester, It seems to be going up by the day. Tonight on my way home it was £1.08 per litre for unleaded and £1.17 for diesel. I think its really grim at the moment.:mad:

    I'd like to know what it costs where you live


    You picked a bad time to get a car Cog, i've never known it so dear!!!

    I THINK I saw diesel going for £1.14 in Henley (of all places) but I've seen it at £1.17 most other places.

    I'm not sure about petrol, I think it's about £1.08 here (might be a few pennies out)

    the think that upsets me is that they put for example the price up 50p and then they say the price will go down by 5p......what a joke.:mad:

    I'm paying 113.9 for diesel and Jenny pays 104.9 for unleaded up here in South Yorkshire.

    The problem isn't the cost of fuel...it's the fuel tax and damned VAT.

    If the price of a litre of petrol was tripled (or worse) we'd still have to pay it and the government knows it. We'd use less of it,of course,but won't that save the planet?

    Doubt it,every morning at 07.30 330million chineese start their cars!.
    The government like to put a green tax on anything that produces co2 but isnt it curious why they wont back wind and wave power production??.
    simple answer really,they cant clawback any revenue from it!.

    Bottom line is,everything comes down to money and how much can we sting the british public for?, as you say mate,the problem is that we need fuel and we will pay for it BUT I think the time is coming when the public need to take a stand and say enough is enough!.
    Its the stockmarkets which is pushing prices up not scarcety of oil, the oil sheiks must be laughing their heads off at us (as well as ordering their new Aston Martens!).:mad:
