Re: Avatars

Reasonable and common mean open to interpretation, and allow for conflicting interpretations, this protecting the Mod inner sanctum from chaos and turmoil. This is hardened by the code of honour which prevents one mod from overruling another. It's vital to the equilibrium of the Mod continuum and beyond the comprehension of us linear time based mortal members.

How do we make a common consensus in a way to avoid illegalities in decisions and make sure the same rule is applied to everyone, without exception?

It should be already something established in the forum rules, no?

No, it takes the fun out.

I just believe that some avatars should be left aside, just in respect for some members of the forum. Not much for myself, depending of what, obviously, but in general.

We have people from all kind of culture, religions, and background. A little respect for our fellow EFers goes a lond way.

Yes I do, but it is irrelevant to the topic! I want to know what as if me, if someone else is offended today, tomorrow, one day.

And yes I do have an avatar in mind which I find disrespectful for many people of this forum. But it isn't my war.

Why not share? I think it would help us contextualise your point....

Also - if many other people find it offensive, they may join in when somebody of your rep and gravitas raises it

Exactly. And the same goes for the members.

Not likely. We only want rules which the EF members have to adhere to. We Mods make most of them up as we go along and change them every three days to keep everyone on the hop. Ah, that reminds me, time for the next change in Avatar acceptance... off I go.

No, my personal opinion and the answers about an avatar will just contribute to bring the whole thread off-topic.

But if you need an exemple: I once put an avatar from Benetton showing a black woman horlding a white baby in a breastfeeding position and it was removed.


Now bow and lick my shoes servant!

Re: Avatars

nah, we just changed the rules again. All are equal and some are more equal than others. Moving avatars can be quite funny I suppose. I don't know anyone who has a custom title though - SEARCH here I come.

Seek and you shall find…..
I don't mind the titles or special rules, what I sort of have a problem with is not stepping up to say that there are, and go around the issues on the thread, instead of answering straight on.

Now can I have my cock stroked by a pussy as an avatar?

OK....fair enough, maybe I'm missing the point. I just think if you find something offensive, either report it as offensive and get the "official" view, or share with us to get an opinion about whether many others do....


But I respect your right to silence too

Re: Avatars

Ok serious answer from one Mod.
If a Mod saw an Avatar that is obviously very offensive, maybe he/she would take it out. Can't remember it ever happening though. As far as I can remember, it is either a member who sees one and complains or a Mod who sees it and asks the others. We have a look, if the consensus is that it is disagreeable, we ask the Member to change it.

Mind you, I have a lousy memory and it doesn't happen very often, so maybe I've got it all wrong anyway.

I don't think 'rules' will help. I dislike any form of swearing but there is no way I can get that enforced as people's idea as to what constitutes 'swearing' varies too.

Calling other Mods...

Commercial avatars aren't allowed. Avatars which offend common decency probably aren't allowed either. Moving avatars shouldn't be allowed, but apparently are.

Do you have a particular avatar in mind?
I can't think Nil's avatar could be in any way offensive, hoping I am wrong
