    Exclamation New Site Rule - No "Babe" Sig Or Avatar Pics

    Rule:

    Due to the increasing trend of having half-naked ladies in signatures and avatars, I have made the executive decision to make a new rule prohibiting provocative pictures in signatures or in avatars (this includes both women and men).

    Reasoning:

    As much as I love the ladies, the site needs to remain as work and family friendly as possible. While the pictures are not indecent, they are not exactly work friendly for certain places of business.

    I apologize for the hard-line taken on this rule, it's just a very slippery slope and if I can't feel comfortable having the pics show up while I'm at work, that's not a good thing.

    And obviously pics of ISU cheerleaders, Mitinka, etc are all ok - it's just the obvious "babe" pics that are in question.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    re: New Site Rule - No "Babe" Sig Or Avatar Pics

    I have a love/hate relationship with this rule, but in the end I have to agree.

    How about a SFW version of the website which strips avatars and signature pictures from posts? I have seen it done before (a SFW and NSFW version of a message board), although I am not sure how much work it involves.

    She's a beauty. I mean, I can imagine she might be, but then, I don't really see her. But if you can......it's cool. Yep, she's there. Carry on, and remember to take those meds

    Probably not a bad idea.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
