      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.

Occasionally, I receive emails from members asking for help and I ALWAYS respond.

 

Unfortunately, some of you use email addresses that won't accept incoming mail and I can't get my reply to forward to you.

 

Also, despite a warning being shown in bold and RED during registration, some still persist in trying to sign up with anonymous email addresses. They used to receive a polite email explaining why anon. email addresses aren't acceptable. Most don't reply, probably due to the "oops!" factor, so now I just delete 'em.

 

Finally, there are always a few who enter an invalid email address when registering, so don't receive the account confirmation details and that's why they can never log on. If a validation email isn't received within 24 hours of registration, then a typo, either deliberate or accidental, will almost certainly be the cause.

 

So come on chaps, you want the information or access but you aren't doing anything to help yourselves. Please sort yourself out or email me with details so I can sort it out for you, but please don't think your requests are falling on deaf ears! I'm doing all I can; the rest is up to you.

 

If you DON'T sort it out and rejected messages continue, my only course of action to stop the nuisance is to delete your registration.

It looks like the email I sent to you has been delivered, Sniper, so I've taken your name from the RED list LOL. Thanks for getting in touch. I try to keep things current on the box, but can only do so if folks communicate, like you did wink.gifwink.gif.

I do not understand that as the email i am using for this is my student address am i have been recieving until very resently, the uni system has gone wrong so that may be the reason, as it is the only "valid" email address i have at the min however. If anyone needs to contact me you can use my hotmail address mercenarymh@hotmail.com

Your Uni email addy failed several weeks ago, Merc. It showed up because you had subscribed to a topic.

 

Have a word with the Uni IT Dept. and when they say it's fixed, test it by sending mails to yourself from hotmail.

 

Let me know when it works but meanwhile if anyone emails you using the email button in any of your posts, it ends up bouncing into my lap, so don't misbehave LOL biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

 

Gawd! You've just subscribed to something on the box and now it is indeed bouncing into my lap. Please turn it off ASAP and use the suggested means of testing, where only YOU get the hassle. withstupid.gifwithstupid.gif

Thanks Merc,

 

If your email probs at the Uni are half those we have with our BBS host, then you'll keep a department busy well into the night, EVERY night LOL wow.gifwow.gifwow.gif

 

I have received email from AGF this morning, no problems, but outgoing email is broken yet again. It's like trying to sprint over a course covered with 12" of treacle!

 

Keep at 'em m8, and if you need to run any tests, just rattle my cage. thumb.gifthumb.gif

Matt, I just sent you an email from an AirGunForum account and it hasn't bounced back in 10 minutes, so it looks like the problem has been resolved.

 

Some times I get to thinking that email accounts are like women - unpredictable biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

 

The only exception is our host's email services which are predictable. They WILL break down at least three times a week mad.gifmad.gifmad.gif

 

Thanks for digging around m8 and let's hope the account continues to work as I don't want to receive copies of your (or anyone else's) subscription topics rolleyes2.gifrolleyes2.gif

Hmmmm... Thanks to Merc (Matt) I just noticed that my name is on that list for the 16th of January. As far as I'm aware I had some difficulty registering back in December. My registration e-mail is freserve/ fsmail and they have been experiencing servers problems since the 16th of January due to a change of servers or something like that. It's all a tad confusing unsure.gif

 

Ah well, I have recently just got access to my NTL e-mail (ian.paul3@ntlworld.com) and I'll attempt to change the details now aconfused.gif

 

*Edit: Sorted. Cheers for the heads up Merc thumb.gif

 

- Greg
