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.

    When he realises just how expensive it is to start living away from your parents he'll be back with his tail between his legs...

    Just be supportive, unless he's 8 years old, then you may want to intervene.

    Flying the nest is usual.

    Make the most of it, took me years to get rid of my lad, saved me a fortune on food, petrol (the car always came back nearly empty) electricity (never turned any lights off) and the washing machine had a good break from being on all the time! He'll soon be back, as Barcelona says when he realizes what the real world costs.

    My lad was on about doing the same a few months ago, I knew I shouldn't have told him how much it was going to cost him and his mates, the price of electric, gas, council tax, food, phone line and internet, washing, by this time he had second thoughts and said "screw that" they don't know when they are better off but they get together with a couple of mates and think it will be great to do what they want when they want and see it as a good time to be had.

    They really don't have a clue!

    Ah, that makes sense now, it's a bid for freedom, and his mate needs a mate to help him.

    Look at the nice side of it.

    Hunger will bring him home Pete. I did the same as Nath and I went home rapid even though my mom was the worst cook in the world. If child-line had been about in them days I would have called them whenever she called us in for dinner. It's a novelty and who can blame one so young for such freedom.

    As a mum just let him give it ago ...I love my daughter who is now back home but when she did move out for a while it didn't take myself and my husband long to get used to the freedom and less mess around the house ..in fact was very hard to get used to her being back ..... kids only think of one thing and that's their self .

    16? Blimey that's a bit young but hey, you can't really hold him back. By all means provide emotional support but I would certainly not bankroll him. To use a phrase oft used by my dear old dad "It's your bed. You lye in it!" :D
