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.

    Nah someone else ..I got a reply and he said I can send it back ....I said are you going to pay for return postage and he said yes £3.90 for 2nc class recorded so I told him to send me the money first ...I am quite happy to keep the knife but I don't appreciate being sent 2nd hand / ex demo goods without being asked first :mad: and to send me scope mounts as a "goodwill" gesture that I have no need for whatsoever ...he would have been better off knocking off a couple of quid instead

    Absolutely agree, £3.90 doesn't begin to cover your time & annoyance levels.

    Sadly it's good customer service that stands out these days, rather than this kind of experience.
    This sort of p**s take is becoming the norm.

    Keep on at them & good luck. Maybe name & shame if they don't make it right?

    I have already purchased the same bipod from them and its was good so I ordered another one ..they were showing 4 in stock online ..he said this was the last one and its has a few marks so could be an ex demo one ..only very minor marks but that is not the point ..they send a hand written note of apology with a pair of scope mounts that I have no use for :facepalm:

    They sent me £3.90 for postage to return the goods for a full refund but I said I want the bipod and blade I bought so I will just wanted to return the mounts as they are no good to me ... they said keep them for a rainy day and keep the £3.90 so that’s the end of it

    So long as your happy everyone's a winner. You did let them off lightly over the bipod though.

    Well they were cheeky doing what they did but I got a 12% discount when i bought it and they were already cheaper than anywhere else and they don’t have anymore in stock so if I sent it back I’d have to stump up more £££ but I am happy with the outcome
