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.

    '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.

    More column- inches and airtime crap is produced by the playing of football than just about anything else, bar politics. Women's football can only double it. :D

    I have tried to watch it, but to be honest the standard of the football is not great, but has improved greatly. But since they don't swap shirts at the end of the game, I have never got passed half time.

    I hate American football simply because I can't understand it, and it takes to bloody long with all the interruptions.
    I think after watching some of the above, I think I need to watch more of this to get a better understanding of the game.

    Can't fault the women on their technical ability, but they're far too slow for my liking, and the standard of goalkeeping is at best rather comical. I don't know whether it's a lack of strength, poor positioning, or just a fear of landing on their tits when they dive.

    Women's world cup does not really do it for me I'm afraid.

    Having said that neither does the men's world cup.

    Big Bunch of fairies on both counts.

    Kind of where I am with it really.

    Watched a bit of Gemany China game, the goalkeeping wasn't much.
    The kind of Sunday morning local football standard I used to play.

    We would be lucky if we had one man and a dog turn up to watch us. :D

    It bores me stupid, people go on and on about how great women football is.
    I'm sorry but I must be watching a different game, a good mens amateur side would beat them !!

    The standard of the football sucks. I certainly understand that many women simply have no access to the game whilst children so never learn and practise. Under such a scenario it's no surprise the football is poor. Instead of pushing women's football from the top via a world cup they'd be far better pushing it from the bottom at school age girls.

    Same as any footie - not remotely interested doesn't come close. Turn off TV at the mere thought of footie being screened...

    I think they'd get more respect if they didn't have to stop a game because of rain, not just any game but a World Cup Game.

    Sweden v Chile - The fans and stewards stayed out in the rain and the players went off for over 20 minutes, possibly to fix runny make-up (but officially to hide from the possible lightning - sorry fans/stewards, you are expendable).

    Just to p1$$ on most people's bonfire...
    Seems to be a lot of comments in this thread from folks who are comparing it to men's footie, or folks who don't like football anyway. So, why comment? :shrug:

    Mrs TinCan and I do appreciate the women's game, and we're actually quite enjoying it - especially when England and Scotland are playing.

    Just watching England vs Argentina at the moment.

    So there. :mao:
