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.

  4. Hotmail block emails from us entering your inbox. Unless you can setup a safe sender you will not get activation emails from the forum. Please use an alternative provider or complain to Hotmail.

  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 bought an item off a fellow forum member not so long ago,2 weeks went by and no item,chased the item up and the seller tracked it where it was at my local office after a failed delivery,i never got a card through the door and apparently it was attempted to be delivered at something like 6.30 am
    strange when in the 11 years ive lived here weve NEVER had our mail delivered before 11.30am and upto 8.30am my missus and lad are at home :confused:
    i would like to think it was just a 1 off but unfortunatly weve had a few things like this happen as of late!

    Two years ago our postman left a note through the door saying that he'd left packages in the wheelie bin, on bin day, before the bin men had been.

    He knew this as he is a villager of many years.

    Thy were mostly christmas presents from amazon.

    In the past few days alone my household has suffered 3 thefts from post delivered by RM, packages were opened and items had been removed, One parcel had been opened and the item hurriedly stuffed back after the thief discovered it was a personalised phone cover and not the phone they probably expected it to be, We also received someone else's mail today (was intended for a recipient in Kent) and last week received a parcel from the USA that had not been ordered, no paperwork or return address, the delivery address was mine except for one digit different on the postcode.... no idea who to return it to apart from RM.

    Because of these thefts/tampering I contacted the senders one of whom has insinuated that I have been dishonest! :mad:

    The odd item here and there has failed to appear over the months of the last year but this coming Christmas theft from mail appears to have reached epidemic proportions.

    I won't lose out as it's the senders responsibility under distance selling regulations to replace or refund but I'm still going to make a formal written complaint to RM shortly as I'm disgusted with them... We feel violated! :mad:

    just found this and thought i'd add it here ;)
    I went for a job at the Royal Mail sorting office yesterday. After the interview I was given a tour of the depot.

    I asked the guy taking the tour "What's that machine?"

    "That's the Acme 3000 Auto Sorter System. It can sort 150,000 letters an hour and it's 99.5% accurate. It's controlled by 12 supercomputers, each of which is 5000 times more powerful than an average desktop PC. It has over 15,000 state-of-the-art optical location identification sensors, contains enough circuit boards to entirely cover the pitch at the new Wembley stadium and it has 200 miles of fibre-optic cable. It cost over £100 million to develop," he boasted proudly.

    "What happens to the letters after it's finished sorting them?" I asked.

    "We give them to a bloke on a push bike."
