Hello Mods and admins, today it seems I am having a bit of a problem.

Back in November/December I used this avatar (except 80x90, I wasn't asm then)


If you think I'm lying, or say, maybe a mod never saw it... Check out the posts from this thread.

(The one that is showing now.)

Kolder decided to change it without giving me a warning. I changed it back, regardless of what the rule said, because I thought he was just trying to be funny... I didn't know he really wanted it gone. There is absolutely nothing in the rules that says you can't have something like that.

I've used that avatar for over a month, PbNation has an avatar like that, and I've seen one flashing saying "Do you have epilepsy?" and that userr I believe has been using it for a long time.

Please tell me why this is not allowed on PbNation! Nobody ever said anything about before.

Occasionally we have to make a executive decision about an avatar that is just too annoying. We want you to be able to express your personal identity in your avatar, but we don't want it to be so over the top that it actually gets in the way of other user's positively experiencing the site. It's a difficult balance at times.

I have to say though, I wouldn't recognize you without your traditional Scrubs avatar.

I just don't understand why it was once okay but now isn't...

If you know who changed it, why don't you ask him?

It was Kolder, he did not explain why I couldn't have it.

He obviously saw it before, as I pointed out.

EDIT: My computer is in plain view of anyone in the house. My mom works down here most of the time, so she can see the computer. Do you really think I want her or my grandmother to see the half naked avatars some people have? No. In the FAQ it says if you have a problem with that you can just turn avatars off. That's what others can do if they don't like mine.

I found it very annoying along with other users so I changed it. You can PM me if you have a question for me.

I would rather get some other opinions, but thanks for the offer.

Why did you never take it off before koldy? You obviously thought it was annoying then, as the quote shows

EDIT: You werent a mega, but you could've gotten it done.
