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 own a seat Leon Cupra 1.8 turbo. I bought it from a garage for £2,500 and it was immaculate. I took it to a hand car wash after 2 days and the chap spraying my car with the washer had to stop because the paint and lacquer was coming off! Straight on the phone to the garage who denied all liability. Took it to small claims after getting professional opinions from 3 car paint specialists who all said it had seen a cheap part body spray that wasn't done correctly. They also informed me that I'd need to get it fixed before rust set in, so I had to get it resprayed. Fortunately I knew someone who did a full car spray for £400 but it would have cost me £2k+ if not. I also got statements and 3 quotes for resprays which I included in my small claims case. I went to 3 seperate Seat garages before I had the work done and got them to give me quotes and statements on what they thought the resale value was in the condition it was in, £500, £200 and not sellable. This all went in to the case which took a year to sort out but the court was on my side and said that the garage had to pay for the full respray value and a small amount for the time and effort I had put in getting all the quotes. In the end it cost the garage more than I paid for the car after fees etc.

    Neil do not take it else where because if someone else touches it the garage you originally bought it from will not take responsibility as someone else has messed with it take it back tell them the problem and tell them you want another car in the meantime because of work and commitments but mate you need to insist this not ask iv worked in a big car sales garage and have come across this plenty of times if they say no take the car to the garage take the keys to the main office leave them there and say your going to seek legal advice !!!! (Expect a call in the next few hours ) atb josh and good luck ps you are in the right mate always (;
