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.

  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.

    Sunday is drag the kids out day, normally a National Trust place as there's loads near me in SE london/NW Kent.
    So we're at this place called Ightham Mote, an old house off the A25 near Sevenoaks, there's a few tents set up as a market type thing in the grounds selling wooden stuff, jams, homemade cards etc, you know the s**t.
    CAKE STALL!!! So I'm off, the kids had a doughnut & some red velvet cake, the wife had nothing as its bad for her, and i opted for the the bread pudding.
    Haven't had any for ages, OMG, I'd forgotten how good it was, cold wet solid bread & sugar, food of the gods.

    Is it even classed as cake? Who cares, its the best, there is no better cake/pudding.

    Yup, cake is good. And there are many types to choose from.
    Whenever any of my grandchildren come round, I usually brew up a batch of cakes for them. The kids don't even let them get cold before they have scoffed the lot. :D

    It is also good fun teaching them how to make cakes. . Smiles and laughter all the way. :)

    Bread pudding; oh yes. Crunchy with demerara sugar and fragrant with nutmeg; heaven!

    Oh yes!

    I really do have to agree with you on bread pudding, my wife makes it and I make a pig of myself. Yummy.

    Regards.

    As a kid, I used to drive my mum mad. She'd always bake and yet I preferred tea at nan's. Shop cake was the draw.

    These days, not really bothered with the sweet stuff but show me a cheese scone or home made sausage roll with shortcrust pastry and I'm there.

    We always used to have bread pudding as kids. As for cake, I think @PumpnGun may be an expert on that. He loves to THROW a cake party for the Mrs ;)

    Haha. I know Ightham Mote well enough, but I'd forgotten about bread pudding. My granny used to make it. With a few raisins and sultanas thrown in ..

    Oh, man ...
