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.

    my exam went absolutly crap! (excuse my french i failed that too!)

    there were 6 sections. i guessed 5 of them:(

    the one i could do was a gun question:up:

    it asked to work out the change in momentum after traveling through a target.

    it asked the force that the target put on the bullet

    it asked me to work out the recoil in jules

    and it asked why smaller projectiles fo the furthest.

    this is the only maths i can doo.
    working out bullet speed and its momentum and the affect of the target on the bullet.

    on all other 5 sections it was just very hard maths.
    i'm in middle set for maths and i still find it very hard!
    this was more like higher level maths so when i see big numbers and odd equations and i have to find out the missing info i get lost:(

    i even knew that the gun they were using in the picture was a webly longbow thumbhole.

    so i'm in a really crappy mood:(

    no chance:D
    the physics teacher is a shooter too so thats all we would talk about.
    we also disgused neutons law when it applies to semi autos as the muzle velocity decreases because the recoil is absorbed by the auto loading system meaning that a bolt action single shots is more accurate

    Dont worry about it mate, i sure you will do alright in the end!

    i will never forget my maths GCSE's i got ungraded!!

    i was out BMXings the day before my exam and i had a nasty crash when some little kid was riding up the landing i was about to land into, i smashed my face and had a MASSIVE lip, cuts everywhere, the lot!

    during my exams (the calculator test) the pain of my crusty lip was too much so i put my head down for 5 minutes, i fell asleep and then woke up once the exam was over!

    i re-took a maths test when i was at college which got me a C grade equivalent to GCSE maths. so at least i have that and it doesn't look like im a dunce!

    Why am I not surprised you know you got your shooting question right. Just hope the person marking it has the right answer ! Don't worry about it, just like all the others have said, you done your best and that's all anyone can ask of you. ;) That's all I ask of my boys and I would bet that that's the way most parents think. Come August you'll get your results and I hope you've done well. Anyway you can always retake exams so it's not the end of all hope by any stretch.:up:

    By the way a1 did you notice I spell checked your original post just to help you out with your English, that being your 2nd language :D
