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.

    I suspect it’s going to be obvious when told but in the sale posts what does bump mean.

    Confused of Shropshire!

    It moves the post back to the top.

    In theory more people will read it then as opposed to a post on page two or later.

    Thanks for that, it makes sense. I guess it only happens with sales post?

    Cheers, enlightened of Shropshire.

    Nope it can happen to any post that is deemed important enough to keep at the top for a certain amount of time. Any post that important enough to be kept at the top for a long time will be a "Sticky" instead.

    It's an old English word which means "I've priced my airgun too high & it's not selling".
    Which moves it back to the top so it can slide down into obscurity again.

    I think it must come from pinball terminology and I think it became an acronym afterwards........

    Bump is an airgunner mating call. You'll see it on all sorts of forums where shooters are looking for a partner.

    Found in the Sales rules but often forgotten by sellers.......including me!:facepalm:

    Updating

    1. You must check/update your thread every 24 hours. If it's still for sale please keep other members informed by adding a post to your thread. Once sold; make a post stating that your item is now sold then admin will update your thread and move it to the Sales Graveyard.

    2. If you click on ‘Watch Thread’ this will alert you of any posts in your thread – this can even be set to alert you by email if you wish.

    3. Do not 'bump' more than once in 24 hours.

    Every time an advertisement is bumped to the top of the list by the seller all other advertisements drops down the page.

    A seller who bumps an advertisement more than once in 24 hours will find that it disappears, continued aggressive bumps could result in restricted forum access.

    4. Threads not bumped or updated for a period of two weeks or more will be sent to the Sales Graveyard.

    It's something people do in the sales section almost every day when there is no need for it more than once a week. :frusty:
