i don't understand it either... personally i'm too lazy to deal with all that sort of nonsense.. but a bikini is only a bikini... unless there's some sort of crude caption next to it, i don't see why we should have to be policed like 12 year olds in middle school PE.

Signatures and Avatars
Added: February 1, 2004 - Avatars and signatures should not have any type of nudity or be too risqué. Basically, nothing sexually explicit. However we also ask that you refrain from using bathing suit-type photos altogether for the purpose of promoting on-topic conversation. We believe this is fair as avatars and signatures are in every forum. In some forums these pictures may or may not be allowed. Thus, there should be no pictures, as stated above, in one's avatar or signature. However, images such as stated in the above may be posted in The Ladies Lounge.

Added: January 15, 2005 - You are permitted one photo per signature. Please keep the dimensions within the 400x300 pixel range and below 40k in size. Exceptions can be made if a signature is wider than 400 pixels, but much shorter than 300 pixels in height (a banner for example). Not only does this make for a sleeker, less congested forum, but it also helps visitors who are limited to 56K dialup connections.

Why don't you post this in the proper forum. When people post things in the wrong forum on purpose (especially complaints), it really irks us. Not the best way to start things off. Anyway.......

TOS (or Terms Of Service) is right there at the top of every page underneath the header. There's a section devoted specifically to sigs.

Anyway, it's a great picture. I'd especially love to know which young lady's bottom is filling it. But we went thru this last year and implemented a policy. Shots of females (namely bikini, etc) are not permitted as sigs, as it promotes off topic conversation. If you want to look at ladies, there's a whole forum for that. :)

First and foremost in this case, the photo was removed because it fell outside the allowed dimensions.

no... not porn.
You can post/view pics of scantily clad ladies there though.

Just read the rules before you post, so we don't have to go through this again. please.

Nobody's wife... but my 13yr old daughter is a member.
What does it matter who is running it anyway? READ THE TOS (http://www.finheaven.com/boardvb2/showthread.php?t=1655), and you won't have a problem.

It still doesn't make sense. children go to the pools and beaches and see bathing suits all day long. also it doesnt really go off topic in these threads if someone says nice sig by the way, really not a big deal. im starting to question the masculinity of some the mods here.

I wouldn't doubt that you're confused about a great many things. As evidenced in this thread alone, you've failed to comprehend:

that a limit on the size of sig pics is stated in the rules,
that allowing one bikini picture in the main would mean allowing them all,
that the people who run the site have come to the collective conclusion that bikini-style pics in the "Talk Dolphins Football" forums generate excessive off-topic posting and other problems,
that you can't post here without seeing (and apparently, in your case, ignoring) the request that you review the TOS before posting, and
that the rules apply to you.
Another thing you've evidently missed is that you are here as the guest of the site's owner, who has worked out the rules with the members and the staff (you know, -- the moderators you just attempted to slur).

Your very weak attempt at questioning the "masculinity" of the moderators fails on several levels, not the least of which is your implication that it would be appropriate -- or your place at all -- to judge anyone here negatively on the basis of orientation. I know of at least one mod who isn't attracted to women at all. Her name is Mary, and she's happily married to a man. And whether any man personally finds cheerleaders (or women in general) attractive doesn't speak to masculinity, -- just orientation. (Unless you're willing to acknowledge that you're less masculine than many gay men of your size who could kick your ***. Yeah, -- I didn't think so.:shakeno: )

Anyway, even though your attempt at impugning the moderators missed by a country mile, I will give you credit for trying to make a sexist comment. And since that violates the TOS, I'll give you a couple days off from posting so you can study the house rules and avoid trouble down the road.

In the future, please be aware of and follow the rules, even if you disagree. When you do disagree, feel free to state your concerns here in the questions/complaints/suggestions forum. But be advised that firing off ignorant, homophobic shots at your hosts won't be received well.

Since we do, it's a non-issue.

Case in point. This thread is about signature violations. You acknowledged that you just read the sig TOS. And yet your sig is (was) a whopping 640x480. That's the biggest sig we've seen all week.

I mean, I couldn't make this stuff up. :lol:

This thread is fun.

Just one thing that hasn't been said that I think needs to be pointed out...A great many people surf this site while at work, which means they can't have a big ***-shot coming up on their computer screen because it may get them in trouble somehow.

I see many sites that lable links as NSFW(not safe for work) or SFW(safe for work)...and I see many people getting mad at other people for NOT labeling their links or for posting picks that are NSFW without a warning.

I'm sure we have many people here that would appreciate being able to surf this site without worrying about NSFW photos poppping up out of their control.

Also, IMO, people who constantly question other's sexual orientation are most likely struggling with the same questions within themselves because, people point out what they think they see in others that which is most evident in themselves.

Thanks to the other folks who added info to the thread to help explain why it was decided -- after much discussion and consideration -- that this policy was necessary and appropriate.

Had one member not made the mistake of directing a dumb comment at the very people who provide him and everyone else this enjoyable forum, these points would have been made without anyone facing criticism or sanction.

The point's been made. I'll take my foot off ercin's neck now.:)

You're back in good standing, ercin. If you want to discuss this further, you're welcome to without fear of sanction, -- as is usually the case in this forum. Just do so without dopey comments, okay?:)

Your friend,

Isn't there an option to make avatars and sigs invisible? Just use that. It's like banning certain pay per view events. If you don't want to see it, don't pay for it and watch it!
