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.

    Some of my 11 YO’s art, the first 2 he probably did when he was 10. The car was a present for his oldest brother and the last is one of his most recent ones.
    He loves art and has a fantastic teacher he goes to lessons with once a week.

    he's very skilled for his age some great work there.regards to job relating theres a cafe at climax fishing tackle in dronfield where we sometimes call off for a breakfast,on the wall in there is a lovely painting (actually hand painted on the wall) about 4ftx4ft of 2 mirror carp feeding under the water among the lillies,absolutly brilliant to look at and the detail and depth is spot on just like your lads and i can imagine they payed a fair bit to have it done,if i think on next time im over there ill take a picture for you,can imagine a lot of night clubs or shops ect would pay good money to have something different on the walls too inside or out :up:

    Hes getting some great detail/perspective and really talented for sure... is he just doing paintings at the moment? Try him on some pastels too or something he may enjoy but some 3d art too that way getting into every aspect really opens up other choices along the artist path....

    My partner is an art teacher at a specialist arts college and always good idea to get well rounded in all aspects. Its surprising how many jobs are available following art qualifications

    Youre boy is doing some very advanced techniques for his age

    Great work. That iron man is amazing. You should think about putting some on eBay and selling his work to see what people will pay.

    Thanks for all the kinds comments, he really enjoys going and can't wait for the next lesson. The teacher is great and is really into fantasy landscape type of pictures and the classes are a good size, 3-4 normally.

    Brilliant stuff. Great potential indeed. My favourite is the dragon.

    The thing with games consoles is the need to lead a balanced life. Computer games may help provide them with a common theme for conversation at school. Without it they could end up socially outcast (not always a bad thing, depending on what it is you're being cast out of!!)

    I think it is too easy to judge that today's kids do nothing but play games, but I'm constantly surprised by the high level of endeavour and achievement of some of them. Credit where it's due.
