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.

    Well All , Got a request from Gantongunner to have a little meet up for his birthday . Also discussed by the fire at all the meets that i attended you lot heading for the lakes . Well its been hard work . mainly due to the weather :mad: and its lambing time up here . However due to the extremely kind land owner i have secured the camp site for our sole use :up: So flushing toilets and cold showers . the camp site is on the shore off lake ullswater at the Glenridding end and nice and out off the way . We can have a camp fire ( in a brazier ) on the shore in the woods :up::up::up: not normally allowed Tents must be on the main camp ground but if you have a bivy bag no harm in kippin by the fire . At the moment its a non shooting no guns weekend but il discuss a plinking range with the landowner but no formal competitions as this is a unwind weekend and to save certain people stressing about setting everything up but Milek will be doing the cooking :up: although i not asked him yet :D il provide the brazier and BBQ dont worry about not shooting because we are slap bang in the middle of the lakes hiking steam boats , il sort some sort off boat hire deal if anyone fancies pottering on the lake or a bit off fishing . Please take note it will be Dam cold probably well below freezzing at night so lets have no repeats off last springs meet that whole 6 guys in one tent was not funny :eek: Sorry no junior members nowt Grumps can do about that and hey they just keep catching fire anyway :rolleyes: Cost to be arranged but panic not it will be no more than normal camp site fees numbers are limited and the forum meet vets have taken a lot off the spaces , il update as i sort things out sorry about short notice but im sure everyone understands the trouble the winter weather has caused . One last thing i secured this land on my good name and reputation so a level off common sense and respect for the surroundings is expected :up: Discuss :D

    In preparation for the meet (call it excitement) I am after a good bush-craft knife. Got my eye on a Fallkniven F1 but interested to hear what others have. Will probably only use it to cut me sarnies up with but you never know. No Mora stuff, will go to a ton for a decent one.
