C'mon guys!
 
It's a new year so I went and cleared my ignore list. Some people were on it for being rude or just simply dumb but most people were there because they had obscene or "not workplace appropriate" avatars or pictures attached to their posts. It's embarassing when someone comes into my office and I appear to be scrolling down a porn site while viewing posts. Anyone who knows me or has seen my own pictures knows I'm not some puritan trying to force my morality on other people, but c'mon guys, this is a sports board; please be reasonable.

poydras i went through this a few years back as a mod here and thought it outlined. but i have been gone for over a year so i am not updated as to what the guide lines are now. i agree with u. i had my job block the site a after it was seen by fellow employees back then. which was silly because it was a sports site.

I know i will get the "Let Freedom Ring" speech from members but it would be nice to a certain level of understanding on this topic and accept the fact that pushing this issue so close to limits only hurts a group of people here from being on at work and other places.

i understand your point of view. I view this site like a family. i have missed it while i was gone

Last year my 10 year old daughter walked up, looked over my shoulder, and said "Daddy, who's that girl?" ... what girl? I don't see any girl..."You think mommy knows who she is?"

LOL, well as a female board member, I have to say that "some" of the pictures are offensive to me.....I just try to ignore, and absorb what the thread I'm reading is all about. I dunno....just for me, glad my half-nude pic is not being displayed for all to see.....seems "just a tad" disrespectful, but that is JMO! ;) With that said, let the season begin!!!!!!!

To everyone:

We're moving to a new format for avatars and trying to fix this issue. In the mean time, please see this thread in the Support forum on how to block avatars, signatures and/or images while at work.

Link here


We plan on having an avatar/image policy in place before the season starts.

Thanks,

Halo

I totally agree with the sentiments posted on here. It is not that these people, myself included, are prudish but pictures of Saintsations are ok, but women with there butts in the air covered in oil... well, you get where I am going with this. I am all for freedom of speech and so on but does sexual imagery have to permeate every part of society. Can we not just be talking football and Black and Gold stuff. Haven't been on here for a while and have missed it. Just one more thing... GAME ON PEOPLE!!!!

You're not going to ban Zooey are you? She is quite pure and low-key you know. :mrgreen:

Sorry if I have offended anyone. I certainly see yall's point, and would hate for people to hide me just because my avatar was offensive.

I haven't had my avatars turned on for well over a year. I work in a doctor's office with patients and doctors coming in an out of my room. It got to much for me also(pornographic really) so guidelines were changed, people banned, and now there's an option to just turn it off. I miss seeing some of the cool looking avatars...but it is what it is. It's everywhere on every board... learn to deal with it as many other have and just turn it off.

I do miss looking at my cool little penguin though.
