I recently received a message from a site moderator suggesting that I change my avatar. That it does not fall into the "family friendly" guidelines of the site. I have had this avatar since I became a member and it has never been an issue with anyone. I have not heard one word from an administrator, or anyone else who can actually make the call. I thought I would let the site members tell me what they think. Do you think my avatar is inappropriate or not?

To be honest, there are a few avatars, membernames, and other images that are pushing the lines.

 

I understand your frustration, as you have had the avatar a long time (and other have also), and the request has come out of the blue.

 

However I do back the decision that it should be changed. The moderation team will be posting an announcement regarding these items.

Along with whatever the moderation team decides. There should be changes made to the forum guidelines that aren't quite so vague.

 

Rule #2 of the forum guidelines states:

2. No profanity or explicit submissions. Do not attach inappropriate photos to any posts or profiles. This will result in warning and possible banning from site. There is a bad word filter in place that will take care of most inappropriate words.

 

Inappropriate by the standards of? What one person finds inappropriate may be perfectly appropriate to another. Depending on what he/she believes, or how liberal or conservative they are.

 

Some things like blatant Nudity, or pornographic images are self explanatory. But for the gray areas, there needs to be a more definitive guideline.

 

That is why I started this pole. To get feedback from other members about their feelings of what inappropriate is.

Sh!t, I clicked no when I meant to click yes. Yours is fine. As is saving the tatas and fukinitupagain. It adds to the personality of the site. We are all mature people, there is nothing pornographic, lets act like adults here.

 

*searches for Scott's southpark pic of pezzy* Let's see how appropriately Pezzy dresses,,,

Honestly I don't think there are that many 8 year old kids trolling the forum. But of course people here do have kids who may see the forum while mom or dad are online. Though in my opinion there are A LOT worse things on the web than a few slightly suggestive images. And you wonder why unccpathfinder doesn't post here much anymore.

Honestly the "bouncy" gif avatars kind of annoy me, yours doesn't bother me at all. BUT I have no right to complain as I started the whole mess with my "underboob" and "nissan bounce" avatar a couple of years ago.

 

You do have the option to hide avatars if they really bother you. You can do so in your Control Panel under Board Settings.

If Morningwould's avatar is questionable then I would have to say that Pezzy's is as well. Maybe all avatars should be voted on by the board before they are approved for use. I'm sure some short people would be offended by my avatar.

Yes, it is his fault. Lets ban him!!! :D

 

Good point Andrew, but that shouldn't be necessary to do...

 

Where I draw the line is if it is NSFW or not. I log on from work (on my lunch or breaks only of course) and I don't need to wind up in trouble if my boss walks in, sees something and thinks it is out of line. I think that is pretty easy to determine for everyone. No nudity or remarkably suggestive stuff...

 

Logins don't bother me personally, but I don't have kids to explain things to and I understand the principle. MW's avatar? Non issue IMHO, I looked at it several times before I even realized that it was a silhouette of 2 women (insert old age/blind jokes here). :shrug:

 

Things are being discussed and will be hashed out soon, as Pezzy said earlier.

Mine promotes drinking and cleavage (look real closely) so perhaps I should change it also??

 

Sorry, I really shouldn't be posting this... :D

To be honest I don't fully pay atention to most avatars. Of course I'm not the best judge at whats offencive, I'm called all kinds of things on a daily basis to my face. Yes blunt nudity is a no-no, and I agree things should be watched due to the fact some people here have familys and someone who shouldn't look may see something they shouldn't. That and some people check in while at work, some employers may not aprove of certian things popping up on a computer screen. As stated, this is a good example of why unccpathfinder don't show up as often as he used to. That avatar offends, but the screen name 'Mourningwould' is not taken wrong by anyone? (no offence, I personally think its funny and don't mind). I'm sure my avatar offends silhouette warning people then...

 

(and don't feel bad B, I thought there was three of them until you said something, shows how much I truely pay atention to them)

There's a lot worse out there, half naked women, women's asses in bikinis saying "I <3 bacon", save the tatas, the boob bounce one, etc. This one isn't that bad at all and I think that if he's had it for that long then it should stay. If it was offensive and nothing was said about it earlier, then "tough." It is not fair to just now say something about it.

So if I have an avatar of a silhouette of two guys touching eachother, none of you would take offense??

Yeah that was one of the couple of avatars that I've had taken down by the mods. Its whatever for me. I seems to always come back to my diversity one. If you want to see a nasty one check out my avatar over on NOAS. Nice, right?...

The only way I'll go along with this is if their c*cks are touching, other than that its just softcore cinemax porn & you've just wasted my time Pezzy. LOL... BTW never watch a movie called Short Bus... ughh, flashbacks. Don't back out on us now Pezzy, we're all excited now.

I do seem to recall a avitar that redpath88 had a bit back, that was a whole bunch more risky then your avitar. Way to challange the so called "law" mourningwould, I salute you for that one! Atleast this thread hasnt been locked down............yet

I think MW's avitar is relatively artistic.

Yes they are siloettes of 2 women but rather than drawing out NAKED or Girl on Girl action I see something as purely artistic and the subjects both happen to be women.

I think the line should be drawn @ nudity and Obsene gestures or actions. Maybe there will be a little grey allong that line but lets face it, for those family people, anywhere where there is warm weather and sun you kid is eventually gonna see a bikini or scantly clad person but not straight up nudity. and thats pretty much the category I see met here.

I think if we discuss this in a respectful fasion there should be no need to Dictate, lock, sut down or delete this tread.

I'm sure we can find some even ground or understanting or @ least a more acceptable point of view (art)

I like this comunity and I want it to stay nice but I also fear trying to hard to protect it combined with a common reaction to the ovesized effort can send things down hill.

Its the common "utopia flaw" too much contol to maintain utopia only leads to more chaos or a degedation of utopia. (ex brave new world, 1984, appleseed, time machine, logans run etc...)

Maybe we should ditch all avatars and signatures.....pictures too.

Lets get rid of the text too :rolleyes:

 

I remember a couple of years ago someone commenting about RedPath88's avatar, before he was even a Mod. Both of our female members didn't mind it, so it stayed.

Now someone grizzled about it and he changed it.... NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL huh?

 

As for rule clarification, where would we draw the line?

 

Is this the biggest thing in peoples lives right now? DAMN SURE AIN'T IN MINE.

 

Scott, we need more crayons.
