First of all, a warm welcome to AirGunForum.

Unfortunately, in the past, registrations were accepted with anonymous email addresses and we found that almost all problems with malicious postings came from members having anonymous email addresses. We decided to take positive action to stop these people spoiling the genuine members' enjoyment of AirGunForum.

We are no longer permitting automatic registrations. All new membership applications will be examined by the administrators before full access to the forum is granted.

Registrations from those using free anonymous email services such as Hotmail or Yahoo will generally no longer be accepted. To register you will require a valid normal email address such as that supplied by your ISP.
If, however, you have only an anonymous email address, all is not lost; send an email to Admin. who will assist you.

These actions have not been taken lightly. Enforcement will, unfortunately, involve a lot more work on behalf of the volunteer board staff, but we are convinced it is the only way forward.

Presently, there are no plans to apply the anonymous email service restriction to existing members, but that is subject to constant review.

Furthermore, we now ask that a location be entered. This is only to ensure as far as possible that comment and exchange of information is as appropriate as possible to the varied laws applicable across the world. Also, due to changes in UK law, a date of birth is also requested, but can only be seen by the member and administration.

Anyone attempting to register with an anonymous email address or invalid location will not be accepted and their registration application will be deleted.

I hope you all support our determination to keep AirGunForum a friendly, troll-free and interesting place to visit.

Hi guys. The major UK BBSs have also adopted this policy because of events suffered by all.

There are no plans to eject already registered anonymous email users at present. If this ever comes to pass, the reasons for it, together with fair warning will be posted on here.

Hi Guys. I'm new to your forum but use several others witch we have had loads of probs with trolls, detrimental posts and that sort of thing. I am 100% behind your plan and hope that the other boards follow suit.
We have had loads of probs with public access boards like Potshots and Live On Air.
Some of the posts are giving massive amounts of ammunition too those who would seek to ban our sport.
Hopefully thay too will sonn adopt a registration policy.
Sibear.

Having just started up the Airgun Shooter BBS I will be keeping a careful eye on all your points about anonymous emails, especially during the silly seasons (holidays) when most of the trouble seems to start.

At the moment my BBS is not visible to the main search engines so unless they know the URL I feel safe. (probably not for long)unsure.gif

Hello everyone,
Just joined the forum, I don't know much about todays airguns, if I tell you my present guns are a BSA Scorpion & a Sharp Innova, you'll see what I mean! ( I am however in the throws of buying a new one for vermin control and target shooting in my garden.
Like the rules I have seen and find the posts interesting and helpful.

Hello, I've, (being a bit slow!) just discoveredBBS information and would hate to be banned by the forum because I've got to use Hotmail because I share with my wife whose computer it is, so if you require any more info. about me, just ask. I have nothing to hide! Thankyou and I wish you a happy new year.Mick.

Hello to all! As a Newbie on this fine site i feel i need to ask this question!
Although i have joined with my assigned email address from my isp (Which i have'nt used for 6 years now)

Can i now revert and change my contact email address to my normal one?
which is my user name @gmail.com?

Would the BBS on this site allow this? And More to the Point Would the Admins allow this?
Thanks Nev..

I run an IT based forum and know where you are coming from. I found that using the manual registration checking process for a few weeks got rid of the anon sign-ups (for a while). I was then able to switch back to automatic for while, it was about 6 weeks before the anon sign-ups started again. Manual reg gets rid of the bots that just sign up and post spam.

A word of caution though, more and more people are using the @gmail.com or @googlemail as their primary accounts, in fact many IT magazines are recommending it, by banning these addresses you may be losing out on worthy new members. I also see that @orange.net is on the list, Orange now provide broadband access in the UK so the @orange.net may be a primary account for people.

Hello All! I'm Mel, a 24 years old chemistry student from Germany. Have been shooting 10m offhand air rifle since I was 11. Currently, I just have access to a 7 metres "shooting range" that is frequently used with a Slavia 631. Other than that, I'm shooting catapults a lot - check out my webpage www.melchiormenzel.de in case you're interested.

Hi folks, I've just joined up and it looks like a great site you have, thanks for allowing me in.
I have just taken up shooting again after a long lay off, I started a field target club in 1982 with a friend. Test Valley Airgun Club in hampshire. I think an off shoot of it is still running in Romsey/ Southampton area. Hasn't everything changed since those early days..bit of a shock. well i'm off for a look round, see what i can learn. Mike
