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.

    '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.'

  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.

    Like most of us I am very concerned about the proposed ban in Scotland. I intend firing off a few letters to various people and perhaps try to get something aired on the BBC Farming program.

    Before I do this i would like to get my facts right.

    Can someone let me have details as to who is introducing it.

    Why? Most importantly. Is it for a legitimate reason or just some politico making a name for himself.

    What is the basis of the ban?

    I'd appreciate your input before I jump in feet first without any facts

    Thanks Pav.

    Ok there is no ban but Alex Salmond the First Minister is making airgun a licenceable firearm after a young boy was shot and killed by a junky in Glasgow. So to the layman this sounds like a fair moove but if you dig deeper the story gets a bit more intaresting. the famely of the boy are convicted drug dealers ok so far now it starts to get interesting on the morning of the shooting they sold the shooter drugs this sounds like a self forfilling prophace to me. Enter MR Salmond who invited the mother of the boy to the Scotish parleament to parade in front of the media. Now MR Salmond anounced that he would bring in a licance for airguns. So if you need the First Minister to do somthing for you it helps if you are a dole scrounging drug dealer but screw the law abiding hard working tax payin voters. hope this helps

    Not going to troll through it. Does it mention a ban on something we don't know about?
    WHAT ARE WE BANNING?

    Yep I bet it will but is that what we are talking about? I have not seen anything about "a ban" If the OP is as influential as he sounds surely he knows the difference between licencing and banning.
    Lets not even think about a ban on airguns if that's what he's on about.

    Well you could think like that, and I guess you do, but politicians can be defeated by people power as has been proven by 38 degrees on more than one occasion. Still if you would sooner just roll over without a fight that's up to you.

    This has been brewing for years mate, and the Scottish government normally get what they want, no amount of fighting will do any good. it,s not a matter of rolling over. they just seem to get what they want:rolleyes:, i suppose this goes for all goverments, just look at the smoking ban, and what this has done to the licence trade.:rolleyes:

    cheers
