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 haven't been here for a while as i haven't been very well of late.
    Since my brother died last year i have had trouble trying to keep my head together.
    A few days ago it finally got the better of me and i had a bit of a breakdown.
    I have been to the doctors and am now on some tablets to try and keep my head together and be able to sleep and function on a day to day basis.
    The only problem is they have made me feel really ill in the time it will take me to get used to them.
    I will be back in a few weeks when i feel more upto facing the world and in the mean time please dont send me anymore PMs about the rifle i had for sale,at this moment in time that is the least of my worries.
    Thanks and see you soon hopefully.
    Mark.

    Hope you get well soon Mark!

    If I can offer some advice regarding the medication (if they are antidepressants SSRI's) with your doctors approval of course, try and come off it after a period when you feel you can cope, I was trapped on antidepressants for 11 years and when I finally stopped taking them I realised I had become better and that they had been masking the fact!.

    Who knows, I might have had some quality of life sooner if I had become aware!

    Anyway, take care and know we're here to talk! :up:

    I don't know you but my thoughts are with you.
    Only the passing of time helps to to fix the despair that comes from the loss of a brother.
    In time you will feel happy with your memories of him.

    Even though I'm fairly new on here and don't know you , I can certainly sympathize with you as I too lost my twin sister suddenly last year, and have been on antidepressants ever since . All I can say is all the best too you !

    Good advice there from a man I know has all types of crap thrown at him in life. Your experiences make every bit of advice you post on this forum well worth listening to.
