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 have always been strait with everyone and in all my deals on this our great forum. Tonight I got a smack in the face not literally just metaphorically I agreed to buy something I said on the forum in plain sight I would take this item. I spoke by pm to the seller saying I would have this and when can I pick this up agreed a time well it was after this time I don't get home before then. Ok send me your address I will see you then got the address I put my name on the pm's so no mistake. Got the address and that was it.
    now . forbid I was late traffic and I don't use my phone when driving I get to the address park up just checking the price and the address I see 2 more messages from the seller sent after the time I agreed to be there after I was just reading these when a car pulls up in front of me bloke gets out and goes to a house.
    reading the messages it's are you still coming for the item then. Next message was O SORRY I MADE A MISTAKE IVE SOLD IT TO SOMEONE ELSE. Both the messages were sent after the time set for me to come to pick it up after it wasn't a time set in stone it was can you come after this time it was less than 30 mins after.
    The bloke who had parked in front of me was the other forum member picking up the item. How's that for a smack in the chops. 80 minute round trip for nowt waste of fuel waste of time now in great pain leg is bloody screaming at me now. I am not a happy bunny

    I would have paid your petrol at least if I had caused another member that inconvenience.

    Yes I see who it was now, I'll make a note to steer clear of that member and anything he sells in future!

    That's just not on and not a genuine easily made mistake. :rolleyes:

    In fairness I have also confused two members when conducting a sale as usernames differ to email addresses/names but where that occurred I made good my error and sorted the loser out with an alternative. Not on here by the way.

    It's not eBay you know where you can just tell a high bidder that the item is no longer for sale! You've really inconvenienced a popular and respected member of the forum who has difficulty making long driving journeys due to a disability.

    I don't think you realise what you've done wrong! :(

    Come on lads mistakes do happen and it appears to me that the seller is genuinely sorry.

    He's apologised so why no let him and the buyer sort this out offline without any input from the rest of us, either for or against?

    I applaud your sentiment I really do but if the seller had wanted to sort this out he would not have allowed the OP to feel the way he does.
