Question: Deleted avatar??

Uhhh yeah, was my avatar was deleted?

If so, why is that?

I searched around and it appears I'm well within the rules...so what's the deal? We don't like women or guns? Both?

Well, it's going back up since I didn't break any rules.

It was a totally 100% work-safe pic of a beautiful woman in a black two-piece bathing suit posing with a gun.

She wasn't even wearing a thong....so no buttholes, nipples or anything showing.

Now, I have to ask, how is this not acceptable? It's not like it was sexist toward women or even somewhat promited violence of any kind.

I mean, I just saw an avatar with a hairy-chested clown.....that's okay but a work-safe pic of a female is not?

Either someone would rather pics of hairy-chested dude-clowns or someone doesn't like tasteful pics of the female form....you tell me...I'm kinda new here still.

So you mean to tell me there isn't a single picture of a gun anywhere on this forum?

I don't believe that for a second.

If that is the case then hit the link below to see where I went wrong.

PIC IS TOTALLY WORK SAFE> GIRL IN BATHING SUIT WITH GUN>

WTH?

I attatched that avvy the same way I did my last one and never had an issue.

I'm going to assume that my avatar was okay and put it back up.

If a mod does, in fact, have an issue, please let me know so I don't look like a complete douche when I keep putting it back up.



Thanks for the suggestions dudes.

I doubt it had anything to do with guns since most of us including C is an avid gun owner. I would PM one of the Mods and see if they know anything. It could have just been a glitch.

i know why it was deleted...

1) this is a FAMILY site.. as in.. you can open it in front of your mom kinda site...

thats why you dont see "post a hot chick thread" i will bet $ it will be deleted again and the mods/admin wont like this thread in general and you should have just PM'ed one of them about it in the first place...

Dude, chill out. I imagine the mods can speak for themselves if there's an issue.

I'm pretty sure it's all set and you don't even know for sure if it was deleted...hell, I don't even know if it was deleted.

Last I checked, families wore bathing suits and Americans still had the right to bear arms....this encompasses both of those freedoms.

Maybe I should stop taking my mom to the beach then, eh...seeing how it's not family-safe....that is, going by your standards?

FWIW; I'm a big boy and I used my own discretion before posting. Of all other forums I'm on, the mods would rather not be bothered about something as retarded as "is this avatar okay?"...unless of course it was unquestionably NSFW.

While I have no issues with the one I see at the moment, from what I read, this wasn't the same one as before? I'll let the mod who removed it confirm that or not.

That said, this is Christian's site. While I don't have a problem with the current avatar, it's ultimately up to him. However, if he does decide it needs to go, we may need to update the rules to reflect (or at least clarify) the policy.

In the meantime, this thread is locked for now.

EDIT: This isn't the same one. There was another one that had a reported post on it. However, my thoughts still stand.
