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.

  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.

    If people need these vehicles for their jobs, then I believe there should be not extra taxation on them as their fuel consumption makes them pay through the nose in fuel duty. But, the ones they are trying to stop running the "gas guzzlers" are the Chelsea Tractor brigade, the school run mamma's who just try to out do there friends with bigger vehicles. I think the tax shouldn't just be a one off showroom tax, I think it ought to be £1000 EVERY year in road tax.

    That might be what they quote in the blurb, but you try getting it on the road...especialy around town on the school run in heavy traffic. Theory's one thing, practice is totally different. BTW...I've worked in the motor trade for years !!

    it will end when we run out of money

    personaly i sugest we stock up on rifles and ammo and get a good tent and a pack mule genetically modified to last a life time

    then when eveyone runs out of money go with the pack mule and sell rabbit meat to starving people.

    then sllep sound in your nice big (tax free) tent:D

    The problem is that there were never enough of these 'Chelsea tractors' around to make it worthwhile collecting the extra tax.It's backfired (no pun intended) on the 'ordinary' man.-Just check what a moderately engined Ford Focus will be taxed in it's first year.
    The increase in tax on higher performance vehicles was always the intention which is why band G crept in a while back.These bands will,of course,be extended to ensure a significant tax take as technology improves (i.e. the CO2 decrease expected as vehicles 'improve').
    Meanwhile,there won't be a SIGNIFICANT reduction in the GLOBAL CO2 levels ,of course ,but that's another story.....or is it?

    I think you might find your 'registered' firearm will be removed from your possession,by the powers that be, before the breakdown of society occurs.

    This is only, a easy excuse, for us to pay more taxes, by the MP's that have been ripping us of for year, and have been proved to have done so...l have said it, before and l dare say l will again...we do not produce enough, to keep the economy going..So there (them being, MP's) have decided that, through your hard work, and the little wealth, that you have accumulated, we want some of it back...so if you have got the money for a big car, more tax...no double glazing, more tax...more than one shed in ya garden, more tax the list go's on...Range Rover has been saved from closer...or has it, l believe, the new owner are after the blue prints, l hope l'm wrong..how many companies have taken it over..then brought out there own 4x4's...and you think Labour is bad, wait until the Tory's get in...Major moan over:(
