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.

  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 won't swear but I'd like to.

    Royal mail prices go up and up, but we don't get a better service, all we now do is line the share holders pockets.

    And parcel force, not part of the royal mail group, I think your find, if you look closely enough, they indeed are.

    When I try to sell something and the sale postage price is 15% or over, I'm not surprised no one buys the bits.

    You ******* ***** royal mail, now look what you made me do, and I said I wouldn't swear. *******

    I posted something just the other week and was told the prices had just gone up. It cost me £55 to send a parcel without insurance to Switzerland.

    Royal Mail cost me money a few years ago. I absolutely had to get some paperwork to HMRC by the end of the month and had left it to the last minute because I'd been busy, but I posted it on the Thursday, Royal Mail Special Delivery guaranteed next day by 1pm. Alright, I thought, so long as it gets there by Monday.

    Ho-ho-ho. It eventually turns up on the Wednesday, 2 days after the deadline, and I get an automatic fine of £100, thank you very much indeed.

    Royal mail couldn't explain where it had been languishing and very magnanimously refunded me the £3.46 is had cost to send it. That made me feel a whole lot better......

    As a long standing employee of Royal Mail, I feel the need to defend their reputation. 'WE' need to charge high prices for a poorer service to finance my 6 weeks paid leave and generous pension benefits (accessible at 55 of course). I've got time to reply as I finished at 11.25am this morning after five gruelling hours work (with a half hour break naturally). The last thing we need is more moaning Minnie's!!!

    I had some dealings with a postie several years ago, he was contracted to work 8 he's a day,his round took him 3 to 4 hrs max then he went home, if they wanted him to do another round due to another postie being on leave or sick he got paid overtime even though it was still within his 8hr shift, wtf is that all about, no wonder stamps are expensive.
