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 saw that. Some of the P1$$ takes were really funny but I reckon they have a secret plan to grow trees in space.

    whilst its funny, note that "space force" dont actually deploy into space but to protect ground based space assets like satellite relay stations etc where this camo pattern may be appropriate. Though i still think that should have gone for the Boba Fett look

    The thing is it would only be the Americans who would be be both dumb and arrogant enough to rename an existing service branch (yet again) as the "Space Force". :facepalm:.

    It used to the Military Police, the the Air Police, then the Security Police before becoming the USAF Security Forces.

    Normally I don't do 'somebody is wrong on the internet' but is that right?

    I thought all they had done is hive off Air Force Space Command into a separate branch within the Department of the Air Force?

    The same way as the USMC is a different service to the USN within the Department of the Navy.

    According to the DoD they will be responsible for base security of existing Air Force bases which will also be re-named as "Space Bases" all within the department of the Air Force.

    So basically it's a rebranding exercise to appeal to those that think Buzz Lightyear & Space Command were cool.:facepalm:

    The Marines can expect to be rebranded as Colonial Troopers next no doubt.

    Ooohhh

    Have the yanks found big-ass asteroids covered in flesh eating insect creatures that are capable of launching burning plasma balls across the void of space to destroy planets... all controlled by big squishy brain-bugs that get their intelligence by drinking the brains of alien life forms??

    The USAFSF is still the USAFSF. And Space Force is Space Force. Not the same.

    The USAF and Space Force are separate services within the Department of the Air Force. The Department of the Air Force isn't the United States Air Force. Just as here the MoD isn't the Army. Or the The Department of Health and Social Care isn't the NHS.

    The idea of hiving off the Air Force Space Command into a separate service predates [Politics are banned - read the Forum Rules]'s time in office by a couple of decades.

    It's the USN who run all the real space ships that fly through stargates. Everything else is cover. ;)

    This forum's software must be really smart. Is it not allowed to mention political figures names in non political threads?
    Test ..... President [Politics are banned - read the Forum Rules].
