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.

    For those of us that can drive or are learning to drive doesn't it make you bloody annoyed when other drivers forget or just plain don't signal with the indicators that I'm sure are equipped and hopefully working on their vehicles !

    I cannot read your bloody mind so I really don't know where you are going !

    Sorry ...... Rant over :)

    Unfortunately the electronics on new cars only seem to recognise male dna. And on the indicators and fog lamp switches this prevents the magic happening .

    At junctions/islands I always have my window wound down so I can hurl abuse at those idiots who don't bother with indicators.

    Try driving one of the new Peugeots, in their infinite wisdom they have installed indicators that when you tap them once (even accidentally) will stay on for around 7 flashes, trying to cancel them by switching back and forth just confuses and pi55es off other motorists... bloody pointless and dangerous modification if you ask me.

    Seems to becoming common around here.
    Going to go straight on at an island.
    So left indicator because yes we have to swing to the left as we enter island.
    Right indicator because we are now swinging to the right.
    Now a left indicator because we are leaving the island to our left.
    Yes this does happen and often.

    Must be my calm demeanor (not). I just shrug my shoulders and get on with it. It certainly is a traffic calming measure on roundabouts because you are not sure where the 'non indicator' is going. I said traffic calming (not driver calming). 1 in 3 drivers is an idiot. Fact of life so just smile at them.
    I shout at the TV too.

    Drive in London, once you realise its about survival rather than the highway code you just shrug off stupidity and incompetence with ease and no stress to boot.

    Too much arrogance and over confidence on the roads now. It's a real pleasure to leave my SE corner of the UK and go north at times, the further away from the SE I get, the better the driving standards it seems. No one hardly ever gives way to parked cars/obsticles on their side of the road any more down here, they just keep coming, forcing the other person into the edge and sometimes even off the tarmac. Say anything and you just get obscene aggresive abuse from male or females. You either wimp out and hold back saving inevitable eventual damage or get more and more wound up over it until you wish for some prat to actually get out and then get into trouble for following it up. What a delight.
