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.

    Actually it really does make a difference. I had a M22 a while ago that loved AA field pellets in 4.51 so I decided to see if they liked the same pellet in 4.52.. it didn't. To say it shotgunned would be an insult to the accuracy of shotguns.

    Back on topic, I don't really have any peeves to be honest but my god do we have some grumpy sods on this forum! ;)

    I find it amusing/strange that there are some members on here who have been members for a number of years and yet have only posted about half a dozen times,was it worth joining if that's the case.Then you get the member,often a new one, who'll ask a number of questions to which he gets a plethora of answers,advice or opinions and then you'll hear nothing from them.

    I guess some of these new members may find that this is not the hobby for them or like me, they have had a lot on for a few weeks and this turns into months.
    Shooting gets put on the back burner for a month or two, or in my case three. However this forum is very accommodating and even though I returned with a question, I received many very helpful replies.

    I am looking forward to getting 'hands on' with my Scorpion again very soon.

    I'm afraid I probably fall into that camp. Several weeks can go by before I get the time to devote to a certain pass time. It doesn't help when you have several time (and also money) consuming interests! ;-) I'm on a couple (actually three now I remember) of other forums... I try to to spend more time participating but there can often be periods (hopefully no more than a few weeks) where I can't. It also depends upon whether I feel knowledgeable enough to actually contribute anything sensible. Concerning airguns, although I'm someone that's owned and dabbled in them for something like 40+ years I would in no way consider my self an expert on the subject and I admit to minimal knowledge and what I do know is decades out of date! As such my posts might well have long periods of inactivity between them. Meanwhile I'm reading the various threads and trying to build up my knowledge without making a wally of myself :)

    Yep perfectly true but I was really referring to those whose posts average about one possibly two a year.

    Dunno about things on the forum i don't think i could offer anything new to what has already been posted..
    Various facebook groups however... i am shocked daily at some of the things posted on them.

    currently having a jolly old debate over someone dropping a KIT i do not think it was clean and i said as much also that i would have taken a follow up shot. nothing wrong with 70% or so of the comments both agreeing and disagreeing with myself.
    The amount saying it does not matter its just a rabbit and things though.. also the general name calling. they get on my nerves.

    so my two things would be... keyboard warriors.. and people lacking basic respect for the things they are shooting can i sneak a 3rd one relating to facebook? people posting shooting at things they really shouldn't... from out of season game to things like cats and foxes...

    guess i could reduce mine to one thing... Interweb idiots...

    I'm afraid Facebook seems to attract the undesirable element of the shooting community and if we end up with further restrictions it'll be thanks to these knobs heads and morons.

    That winds me right up and not just on here,
    I read a lot of car restoration forums and morons who quote a 10 picture post just to say nice work or some other trivial sh*te should have their keyboard taken away...

    - Keyboard warriors (although, it is nice and quiet now the latest one has gone)
    - Members who push their limitations as 'rules for shooting' "you shouldn't shoot quarry over 40yrds, it's inhuman"
    - When you ask a question and you get the "I don't know, but..." reply
    - Oiks who slag off ex members who actually brought some fun to this forum (pathetic)
    - People who want to sell a second hand gun for a new price, because he's polished the internals and stuck a £20 scope on it
    - People who 'know' the law better than lawyers
    - BMW drivers with white sports sunglasses and good hair (not a forum one, but I f***ing hate them)
