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.

Been thinking for a while now We should build a rifle :up: Hows about raising funds to buy a Daystate Wolverine C type action . With the skill set knowledge and crafts men we have amongst us sure the ultimate British rifle could be built . :up: Then a fundraiser or auction with the rifle as a prize . Profits to a democratically elected charity We have all the resources , Could this be the 2014 project ? Start off something exciting , rifle build a year :up: Unfortunately Grumps has retired from PR work :rolleyes: What do we all think ? Just off to eat the last crumbs off the rabbit pie Grumps made last night

    Get one of the stock makers to make a new stock and pass it to one of the tuners then raffle it off?

    I always liked the idea of having a rifle raffle for all the forum members.

    The GTA forum in the states do this regularly and it raises a lot of cash to keep the forum going.

    putting money together and different parts from different member to customise something like say a s200, s400, would be pretty cool. dunno about buying a daystate though :down:

    I think it would be good so long as many members chip in as possible so that all the financial pressure is not placed on a small number doing all the work!

    It's got to be a joint effort, I don't have much in the way of skills but would be willing to chip in financially.

    you could always say £5 each, then once a total is reached buy whatever can be afforded with that total and then raffle it off to the chipper in ers ;)

    so if only a few do it, we tune a b2, if 50 do it, we tune a hatsan or hw99 etc....

    i think springer and co2 is the way forward as its universal really

    I think it's the idea of new people not just coming in and simply entering for the prize, also if the donation funds are used, then really the price should go to those who contributed to the forum regularly or donate them selves....

    The forum doesn't wish to be involved in raffles of any kind in the future, if an organisation hosts a raffle via its own website, then links can be posted on the forum.

    I think its really about what the forum is about, the rules and regulations governing raffles are quite complicated, and we are really an air gun forum first and foremost.
