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.

  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.

  4. Hotmail block emails from us entering your inbox. Unless you can setup a safe sender you will not get activation emails from the forum. Please use an alternative provider or complain to Hotmail.
    Hotmail addresses include.

  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,m back thanks for all the good wishes they must have worked because we've had a cracking day.
    I don't know how to put the pics on in the right order. I,ll try last first. Didn't work.
    That's better.
    I started walking at 8.15am the sun was barely up and for Newquay we had a hard frost. Its not often you see Porth Beach like this. I live about 5 mins walk from here and Fly has been swimming in this river twice this week.
    The footpath proper starts to the right just 2 mins up Whipsiderry Hill.
    On the second pic we have been on the path for 5 mins and that's Porth Island in the foreground with the sun on it.
    Everything is rock hard and frozen solid and the ground is very good walking. As the sun got higher it all turned to serious mud. At this point I realised that the approach shoes that I grabbed this morning had no tread on the outside edge.
    As the day wore on and the mud got softer it turned into a battle just to stay on my feet.
    The Day was glorious. Blue Sky Blue Sea.
    Everywhere there was a little shelter the gorse was peeping out in fact when i used to run i used to see if i could see any gorse in flower and even on the coldest day i always ran past at least one Flower.
    The pic before is Mawgan Porth beach looking lovely in the sunshine. The next two as i,m sure many of you will know is the famous Bedruthan Steps.
    The last pic is where we turned for home just before Porcothan. If i had known how close we were i would have carried on.
    I didnt realise until I checked the walking app on my phone.
    When we got back to Porth I dumped Fly in the river to clean her up and up the hill home. When I came into the lounge after my shower it was the correct time and Fly was tapping me up to take her out.
    Sod that. We clocked up just over 15 miles. Lovely Day. Ps didnt bother with Lunch. upload_2019-12-2_16-24-48.jpeg

    When I served in Northern Ireland,

    I used to take off for the day with my dog to the Mourn Mountains, I would park up in a Police station near Newcastle, then, a silva compass and an ordnance survey map, rucksack on my back and a 9mm Browning on my hip and I would disappear all day in the mountains, returning to my car just before last light.

    My how I miss those days!

    Regards.
    Les.

    Beautiful area, fantastic pics = envy. :up: You are lucky to live in such a place Pete. Lovely dog too.

    Oh and I bet Les (redcap) carried his Browning due to fear of Dissident IRA attack/kidnapping in the hills of Northern Ireland. :thumb: I used to carry one too.
