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 all the changeover was happening with the server, it went through my mind (and probably yours too) that the forum was gone for good.:(
    Even though I'd only been a member a couple of weeks, I was gutted - and since then it's made me think about what it is I get out of it.:confused:
    So tell me - what is it to you?

    Me and Steve have made lots of friends, having Andyhawkx3 phone me when I was in hospital cheered me up no end. I also like to test my competetive streak in the games and like a good laugh and winding people up. Some of you on here have a wicked sense of humour. Having hit 40 this year also I am trying to relive my youth by picking A1 up as my toyboy. I even know a little about what Steve is talking about when he raves about his guns now. All in all I get a lot from this site :moo:

    This forum is only the second one I've actually felt part of, the other was a model helicopter forum featuring what used to be my number one hobby. This one gives me the same enjoyment and fulfillment, people I am genuinely proud to call friends, people who I will go to great lengths to help if I can and people I know I can count on to help me if the need ever arose.
    Like the helicopter forum, I knew a little before I came, I've learned a lot since I've been here and I try my best to plough some of that back.


    All in all it's a place I feel comfortable and it's certainly a place Andy should be proud to have started.

    Just goes to show how friendships can build up without people meeting in the flesh.:)
    Since I started this thread and asked the question, I'll tell you what I get from this forum.
    It's a place where I can get really good, knowledgeable and honest advice for free.:up:
    It's a place where I can while away a couple of hours and feel like I'm amongst friends.:up:
    It's somewhere I can have a rant and not do any harm.:mad:
    And top of the tree for me is I can have a bloody good laugh at people and their native wit, take the p*ss out of them and have them do the same to me without, hopefully, any ill feelings.:up:
    Cheers guys and gals:D
    Cheers Andy:D
