    Which mod/admin decided it was OK to delete my avatar without telling me?

    My avi was fine until a few hours ago. Dont tell me my avi was 'corrupted' and to re-up another one because there is no evidence of the one i uploaded before - there is no 'delete' avatar option, All i get is the option to set a new pic as avatar.

    So lets hear it. Which one of you deleted my avatar without messaging me that had removed it or that you were going to remove it??? Because that Avatar was not breaching ANY forum rules.


    @sneekypeet if this is your doing this is beyond disrespectful - I know we havent seen eye to eye recently but you are taking the piss.

    Hell, ive had troubles with erocker in the past about avatars but at least he's got enough respect & common decency to message me first and ask me to change it rather then straight out delete it and not say a word.


    So lets hear it,

    I removed it, because it contained suggestive material and was too lazy to write you a PM. Mods can't remove avatars.

    Suggestive??? Shes fully clothed and doing a 'selfie' Just because you can see her face doesnt make it 'suggestive' compared to the boobs and beer

    I'm not one for free speech and expression as it's abused like a nun in a basketball match. If the owner of the site wants to take a picture down, hell, it's up to them. I do agree there have been other avi's out there (Qubit's last one - not his present one) with suggestive and soft pseudo porny imagery that lasted a while. But tbh, it's a techy site fully of boring bastards and old men and a handful of dynamic forward thinking ladies. Perhaps using avatars that titillate a male audience aren't really welcome in this sort of place?

    Also, it's an avatar - it should be a symbol of you, a digital, online representation. Now, if it's your gurl, then a nicer, less 'titty' pic would be acceptable. I know for sure one of my ex-gf's would take a flaky at that sort of image as she was insecure about her own physique. Arguments could also be made that people using such avatars will garner less respect as use of the female form to entertain is 'low brow'.

    I'm not having a go at you mate - you're a decent bloke by all accounts but it's just as simple as Wizzard's site, his rules.

    We recently had an internal discussion on avatars getting too suggestive and slightly adjusted the rules. So we are now cracking down a bit harder on those avatars. Just crop your avatar a bit more and it should be fine.

    and yes, I should have sent a PM first and again after removing, I am sorry for that. Just a bit busy with upcoming GPU launches

    In which case W1zzard should amend the rules regarding avatars. THERE IS NO NUDITY OR ANYTHING RATED 18+ about my avatar.

    No disrespect W1zzard but at least message me or get a admin/mod to message me about avatar removal.

    I know its your forum and all and you can do what you want with it but a little respect for a long time member would go a long way.

    even if you just messaged me say "avatar too suggestive = deleted" I would have accepted that, but its the fact that you did it and said nothing which pisses me off.

    It doesnt take even 2 seconds for you to message me,

    Well, tbf, it looks like she's lying on her back looking suggestively at camera with a faux coy hand up to her face to deliver maximum cleavage by means of lateral pressure on her breasts. Any more flesh and we'd get nips out. It's very suggestive, don't be naive. :p

    Hell, get her using a wrench on a car engine wearing daisy dukes and a fully checked shirt on. Less boobs, more 'science'.

    ok return to the title, i think its nice to tell someone to change his/her avatar before deleting it since its kinda make you mad when you have no message or warning then you just have it gone

    Very interesting avatars.

    My stance is that if they are fully clothed then its OK. It's like TV as long as the girls are wearing clothes it can be shown. Even on TV they can show bikinis and bras and panties at any hour of the day.

    Saying that I'm sort of with W1zz with the picture of the beer bottle, because the bottle can be misconstrued as a penis. But the other picture I feel is 100% fine.


    Edit:

    Very true. I'm talking TV from most Western European Countries, United States and Canada. Which covers most of the posters here.

    Really depends on which country you hail from. And the definition of fully clothed. Some countries have exceptionally 'liberal' approaches to female nudity, others are very strict.

    No response to my comment W1zzard or is it am i honestly not worth your time?

    You even agreed that its nice to tell someone to remove their avi or at least let them know you deleted it so why didnt you message me?

    Too lazy to message me? then why bother deleting my avi at all and just fire off a quick pm to a mod/admin about my avi and have them deal with it instead - You had time to delete my avi, im sure you had time to write me a quick pm about it.

    He already said he should have messaged you and apologized. What else do you want? Time travel?

    They cant, but i can - at least when it comes to my own avi/sig

    Erocker has done it quite a few times. He messaged me because my avi or sig might be breaching forum rules and I changed or edited them because he asked me to.

    Its all common courtesy at the end of the day and im not out there to stand above everyone else or flaunt and abuse the rules.

    There was no apology - He only said he was too lazy to pm me.

    That doesnt count as an apology to me



    :EDIT:

    Im reading things through too quickly - I still stand by what i said though.

    Common Courtesy/Respect towards forum members.
