      VCR Bill

      Since the introduction of the "latest" VCR bill on 1st October 2007, sales of AIRGUNS (including replicas) AND MAJOR COMPONENTS (barrels, cylinders etc.) by DEALERS is restricted to a face-to-face transaction.   Please ensure you are familiar with the changes brought about due to the VCR act, which may be viewed on the BASC website.   BASC and ACPO have produced a guide to the VCR act in PDF format, which avoids legalese and is very understandable. See HERE.   AirGunForum members must ensure their transactions conform with current legislation before posting.   An inter-dealer network to facilitate the continuation of mail order business is being established by Portland Jon. Details are HERE or direct to his website HERE.

      Editing your posts

      The forum's EDIT function has been changed. After making your post, you will have 30 minutes to review and edit it. After that, only Admin will be able to make edits.   Should a post NEED to be edited afterwards, email to admin@airgunforum.net the change details, the URL of the thread it applies to and if appropriate, the reason for the change. Don't forget to identify yourself and do use your registered email address to make contact. All this is necessary, as admin must be able to identify who you are and that it is your post that you wish to edit.   Admin. will make the edit if it appears necessary. Note, if you want to change something that could easily be achieved by adding a further post to the thread, you will be expected to do it.   Forum staff generally view new posts added to threads since their last visit. If a "for sale" item has been sold or a wanted item has been obtained, just add a post to the thread and it will usually be noted and the thread title will be edited appropriately. This saves members' time wading through posts that are effectively "dead".   DaveL

      Upgrade   01/16/2018

      Well it took me longer than expected and it was a bumpy road, but the forum is now upgraded to the latest version. The previous skin will no longer work with this new version, but I will check to see if there is a similar one for this version. Enjoy and if you encounter any problem just report it.

Apologies + poss downtime notification

Apologies to all users. We've been hacked by a spammer who has generated loads of rubbish emails.

 

We're just waiting for our techie to scrape together enough time to upgrade the board's software, which will prevent this happening.

 

The board's administrators would NEVER willingly or knowingly permit users to be spammed.

 

Once again, sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused.

I'll have to leave that to Dan (Geordie), who's our techie. I've emailed him and I'm sure he'll get to it as soon as he possibly can.

OK - update time.

 

I've removed all malicious code from the forum, so you shouldn't get any more virus alerts when you log in.

 

Currently waiting for the IPB guys to send me the latest version of the software so I can start the upgrade - this will take the board offline for a short while I'm doing it, so please be patient wink.gif

 

Cheers,

 

Dan

Well done, though I liked the other version.

 

Can we get rid of that ugly symbol and logo in the top left corner and get a nice airgun there instead?

Some posts havn't imported to the new system properly. There's a lot of -e-mail signs about instead of the original content of the post. These seem to be where a quotation is used. This only affects Firefox as IE seems ok.

Strange - I'm unable to do a quick fix on that either, so we'll have to endure it for a bit I'm afraid!

 

Everything esle should be sorted now - I've increased font size a tad, fettled the smilies, redone the logo etc, but if you see anything that's broken let me know! :)

Update on the forums "not looking like there's any new posts" problem.

 

From the main forum view, click each of the dark blue icons to the left of each subforum - this will manually mark all posts in the forum as "read" and make them start turning dark blue again when new stuff is posted.

 

Alternately you can use the "mark all posts as read" link at the bottom right of the main forum page ;)

 

The individual threads should be displaying properly already :)
