Teamwork,

I don't make the rules, I just attempt to follow them.

It clearly states in the rules not to ask for an avatar. There are reasons the mods took this approach and they have to do with Commport (the sister forum).

I reliaze the rules seem stupid - and I seriously doubt you would get banned for asking, but in the LL you would likely get flamed (which you are not getting here).

You are obviously trust worthy enough to have one, but consider there are 14 year olds around this forum who

    A) Can't resist at times putting up an inappropriate avatar
    B) should not be exposed to such from other members.

Now what might make it hard to understand is that you can post nasty pics anyways using BB code. Be thankful you have BB code around here. The commport had so much trouble that

    there is no BB code
    There is no html
    there are no sigs
    there are no avatars
    there is no way to post images directly in text
    there are no smilies


In short, its a text only board now.

Some of those rules got held over when this forum was made.

Also consider - if you BB in a bad pic its in one post. If you have a bad avatar it shows up in every post you have ever made.

As far as it being a bit overblown of an issue - yer right there. This forum has its strange quirks - this is just one of them.

Anyways - did you check your profile? You may have one and not know it.

If not, I am sure one will show up in a bit (or the ability to post your own).

Heh - easy for manta to say "no big deal" when he has one right? SOrry.

Manta

PS - you totally earned one - so maybe a [PC] member might mention it to the mods incase they just haven't seen you. They don't frequent this folder so often me thinks 'cuz we don't make trouble (as far as they know :twisted: ) - (Actually we BUILD trouble!!!!)

And oh yeah - I think the rules say to not ask the mods. I don't think they say you can't ask us. Not sure - I haven't read them in a while.

Manta and Insane do that sometimes. they know how to write, and they do it well. I love it because they explain everything perfectly.

(ok, that sounded like a suck up post, but I swear it wasn't...)

Yea, except you CAN post images directly in the messages, as long as you have delphi advanced or whatever. Pretty sad considering the whole reason for such restrictions was tp prevent fuckups of the past, yet it would be extremely easy to fuck up the board as is anyways. :roll:

Its your MHz rateing based on post count. You are new, so its "10". As you make (hopefully useful :) ) posts, you will gain MHz. Its kinda like rank but not really.

My site is www.infinity-customs.com but I also hang out on www.casemodgod.com and www.pheaton.com both of which have much more active forums than I do. My forums are basically non-existant, they're there but no posts.

Ok, I have a suggestion and I'm even willing to volunteer for the job if it's approved. What about an avatar moderator? That is, if a person wants to use an avatar they have to...

1. Host it themselves.
2. Have it approved by the moderator who handles that.
3. Then have it installed by that mod to their account.
4. Can't change it for at least a set of time say, 6 months.
5. It has to be within certain size restraints.
6. Has to be G Rated or at least mildly R Rated at the worst
7. Can't be insulting or offensive.
8. Has to be under a certain filesize for low bandwidth visitors.

A person then just post a request to have an avatar in a special "Avatar Requests Forum" and gives a link to where that avatar is located. It has to be their own space and offsite linkable, no linking to someone else's web space and it has to stay there, if it "disappears" for a week at a time or what not, that users loses the privilage.

I'd be willing to verify all the requested avatars and insert them into the respective accounts if ya need someone to do it. This way this debate, discussion or whatever NEVER has to happen again.

Oh, signatures, I think I'd agree with having them disallowed, have you seen some of the things people use for sigs? 9 times out of 10 if not more often the sigs are much much larger than the posts they make. That's just bad. Avatars, no biggie, you can restrict their size and all that but, sigs? Ack!
