    are there any rules or guidelines on what people can post as an avatar? i have seen some that could be seen as inappropriate especially as there are children using the site.

    I imagine that 'inappropriate-ness' is in the eyes of the administrators.

    I'd say if it gets removed, then it's inappropriate. If it doesn't, then it's not, regardless of your feelings on the matter.

    If you think they're not doing their job, feel free to alert them to those you think are not appropriate. Just be aware that it's their decision, not yours.

    If someone is using \ displaying a fondness for such avatars, then surely they won;t mind a link to their profile here...It would be interesting to see what other people 'make' of them, perhaps they're not so 'inappropriate' to many here ?

    Well 'inappropriate-ness' is obviously in the original posters eyes also that's why he raised the subject to begin with Suzianne.
    He has obviously seen avatars that would be inappropriate for a website such as this, I don't know which ones he is talking about, but if he say's he has seen inappropriate avatars I find no reason to doubt him.
    So just because the administrators of this site don't see the avatars he is talking about and therefore haven't remove them doesn't make it any more appropriate.

    in fact Suzianne your reply doesn't make sense, let me give you an example. An axe murder finds his behaviour appropriate but everyone else knows he is out of his mind and his behaviour is inappropriate (its not a matter of debate, his behaviour is either right or wrong even though he gets away with it). and people should stop trying to distort right from wrong.
    He continues to do what is wrong, so your agreeing with the axe murderer when he says to you, "In my eyes murdering people with an axe is appropriate regardless of your feelings on the matter Suzianne."

    i don't imagine for one minute that moderators here will be checking avatars given the previous debates regarding forum moderation.

    So just b ...[text shortened]... eople with an axe is appropriate regardless of your feelings on the matter Suzianne."
    What does make sense is that the administrators of this site have the final say on what is appropriate and what is not. Individual users opinions don't mean much unless they complain, and even then, they may not mean much. So you can have your own opinion on what is or is not appropriate all day long, but nothing will be done unless the administrators also feel it's inappropriate. Period.

    My, time flies.

    I doubt you show as much precision in your own life.

    3 years, 5 years, geeeeez, what an absolutely huge difference.

    They have time to look at EVERY profile on this site? That's over 20000!
