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. 

    To close this message box, click on the 'X' in the top-right-hand corner.

  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.

    Mechanical engineer, then guest house owner (licensee, gardener, bed maker, cook, cleaner, listener of life stories and general dogs body), then started a picture framing and art sales business.

    All the time we were self employed we were investing in property.

    Now mostly retired, but we still do the property stuff. Given up on UK residential landlording, now focusing on holiday rentals in Spain.

    It's fair to say that I get easily bored.

    But pronounced 'crack', which is appropriate given the post in which it was used.

    I'm a surface engineer specifying specialist coatings for everything from F1 cars through to digger buckets and spacecraft. Every day is a school day!

    Retired mechanical engineer. Worked for 37 years in the Petro-chemical industry for the same company, one of the biggest in the world. All the planet's aligned just at the right time so I jumped ship. Leaving was the best thing I ever did in life.

    Engineering Manager at a large flour mill, I used to enjoy it and felt like I was making a difference.
    But the huge American firm we are part of just makes it an utter chore to get anything done.
    About to start interviewing for some one to take over my role and then in about 14 months I'm out of there.
    I'm not planning on retiring just do something a lot less stressful as I'm financially quite well sorted.

    I mean, if were starting from the top its was paperboy, bouncer, soldier (infantryman too), copper, career break following divorce in which I went to the states and did some personal security, back to UK coppering again. I'm now a self employed Guinness taster and dirty old lecher.

    Along the way did Planetary studies at undergrad and Celestial Mechanics at Masters with the OU. I did it because it interested me, but the latter in particular could find me good employ with one of the many aerospace firms that do satellite work, but I'm fed up working now. I get up when I want, do what I want when I want to, be where I want to be when I want to be. A couple of years before retiring I'd paid off the mortgage and that was very liberating - once you own your own roof you answer to no one.
