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.

  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.

    My day's going really great.. first the expansion tank started leaking..so out with the triple ladder placed on top of six pallets to give the extra 4ft needed to reach the 27 ft height of the tank inlet.. had some good sealing tape so it should have been easy.. except for cutting my finger on the knife as I cut the tape :mad:
    Now...with a good head of water on the heating system it looks like the storm is just about hitting Denmark...Hope it doesn't take my chimney down...:facepalm:
    May be some gun cleaning this afternoon to take my mind off the old place.....be safe all:thumb:

    Yesterday we had a gazebo in the garden, covering stuff that currently has nowhere to live in the new abode.
    Today I have a pile of canvas and broken box section aluminium (almost) covering my possessions.

    We've lost a fence panel so the dogs can't go in the garden unsupervised.

    And this ain't the worst of it.....

    I looked out of my windows this morning and saw I had lost two fence panels. :(
    A little while later there was a big bang. . . My neighbour's fence has come down and crashed into another section of my fence, and has destroyed it. :(
    The upright posts, which are 6 inches square and supported the fence panels, have been snapped like they were twigs. :confused:

    We now have lashing rain mixed with the wind. This particular storm is turning savage.

    Various fence panels down here as well as my shed roofing felt has been destroyed. Going to try and temporarily tape it up if there's a chance.

    Heard the distinct tines of hammering earlier, guess my neighbour is out saving his fence.

    It all went a bit calm and quiet earlier so, I thought I'd go out and record the intro for my next video. Got the camera's and sound equipment ready and all set up.

    Went outside to make a start. Then, this happened...



    Will have to wait until next weekend now. :rolleyes:

    Very windy last night and heard a slate slip while in bed. Just caught a break in the rain and managed to put it back in before it all starts again! :facepalm:

    Rain on its own fair enough.

    Wind on its own fair enough.

    Both together - there should be a law against it! Maybe now we are out of the EU we can ban all foreign viruses and storms? :D:D:D

    Well we just had a mega storm here. High wind pushing rain into every crevice. Looked like a mini tornado. Then calmed down but still gusty as hell.

    The Ribble has gone over its banks up here. I can see water moving steadily across fields---fortunately from up a hill.
