I concur with the ideas of limiting the avvy's
And as far as what constitutes "offensive," this is a privately owned website, offensive is defined as whatever the owner of the site deems offensive. It is no different than the "no shirt no shoes no service signs in stores," You may not agree with it, but it doesnt matter because that private business has chosen to do that, and you can follow thier rules and stay, or go somewhere else.

Although, a thought does occur. My teammate has his GF scantily clad as his Avvy, and i know if someone just came along and told him he couldn't have her as his Avvy anymore he wouldn't be happy. Now its not like the PB world hasnt seen her scantily clad before, anyone at Cup would have seen Alex (the Empire girl) in almost the same kinda exposure as she is in his Avvy at the Kee tent. So i dont quite know how something like that would be handled. And I KNOW plenty of the underage saw her at cup.

they could always take away the users option of uploading their own pic and make everyone use pics from a list of pre-made ones.then there would be no chance of "offensive" avys.

The problem would solve itself, so long as the administration here clearly defines what is borderline offensive and what isn't so there is no gray area to argue over.

If someone uploads an iffy avatar and says that it is clean, they should be subject to punishment for dishonesty. That will be a natural preventative for people planning on uploading sketchy avatars without selecting the 18+ option.

man, pbn is my main porn site

I dont think there is a problem with avatars on here, if you dont like them, turn them off, simple as that, if its inappropriate than you get that nice black and white flashy one that says "IMPROPER AVATAR REMOVED"

The system is fine and the only thing that's wrong is you're easily offended.

Put up with it or shut off the avatars in cpanel.

You dont get the whole idea do you?
The whole point is not the WE would be offended, but that the parents of the younger subscribers would be offended by the borderline phonographic images that are present in the threads.
And once parents get into their minds something is bad for thier children you will NEVER change thier mind

Exactly. One of the people I mow for (I mow commercial) have kids. One of them is 12-13 ish, and was asking me if I could get him more cheap paintball stuff (I got him some deals through PBN). I said sure. So his mother asked how I got such good deals, and I told her through PBN. She then tells me how her and some other women she knows dont allow their kids on PBN because of the "vulgar buddy icons" people have. Hence why I made this post.
