Dude calm down i see your point for being mad...honestly i dont even know what your avy was. Please dont scream at the mods they do a 100% great job of officiating these boards. I see your a donated and a finheaven vip member so you do care but what was your avy anyway there must of been a reason they banned it

So for right now just calm down :D

Well some things have to be against tos man...They might have let it slide for a year but now there clamping down. Remember finheaven doesnt want any sexual harrassment charges. Im not a mod or anything but i thought I should stick up for them on this one. Please dont directly address one mod it might of been wildbill who did ban your thing but it wasnt his fault. It was yours for having it in your avatar. Now i've had my sig the one skape made me deleted cause it was a lil bit over 40k but still none the less over 40k. Like i said chill :D

Dude, just resize it or fix w/e was wrong. If you had it over a year, i'm sure you could email AJ or Muck to see if they would let you use it.

No need to get all dramatic.... :lol:

you would think after being here a year, a good positive poster a vip and a donator that there would be a courtesy pm before the ax happened.

edit; there was a courtesy pm, my bad

Can I get a PM also? I didn't have my avatar near as long as Fin Fan in Cali but, I have had the same type of Avatar since I joined Finheaven. I have gone over the TOS since my avatar was removed. I agree that my latest was wrong on my part. But how can you call a cheerleader outfit a bikini? There are arms and a skirt, are there not?

I assume they changed the rules on signatures as well, because mine had fit ALL of the rules perfectly, then all of a sudden I log on and my signature is gone. A PM would have been nice, seeing as I had not stored it on my PC...

It did not fit all the rules perfectly. I'm the mod who zapped your sig. It was bigger than 40.0 kb.

Yep, that is my gripe. I have no way to respond to or get approval on another avatar. Since I have no clue on who to petition or get my new avatar approved.

I read the TOS... mine was in violation... I can't argue that now. But Fin Fan in Cali's is NOT a bikini picture. It was just a cheerleader in her uniform.

My next one was going to be of Lauren D. from the waist up in our new uniforms. They have sleeves etc. I would just like to get a PM so I know where to send an avatar picture before I waste my time postin it. So to speak.

We've spoken/speaking via PM. But I wasn't aware that there were multiple threads started in multiple forums (none of which were the Complaints forum).

That's not really the best way to handle it.

I apologize. I haven't checked my mail in the last few hours.

But you have to at least cut us some slack. You sent your email during the game (5:10 PM). Most people aren't checking their email during the game. Remember, we're fans too. We live and die with every play. :) And you created these threads just after the game ended, when we're typically cleaning up and monitoring and/or posting on the site.

Basically, you gave us a 2.5 hours period to respond during a Phins-Jets game!! :tongue: Then you started making a private matter public. Really, if you have a complaint about a staff member....all you have to do is email or PM us (the admins). If it's busy time, PM works better. Because doing what you did (in public, in several forums) really makes it look like you're trying to smear the site, which obviously would be really out of character for you.

As I said to you privately, the mod was only doing what he thought was right. There was no malice. And you didn't seem to interperate it that way in your email.

Now lets all hug this out. :)

There was no harm intended, guys, to either of you (blit too). Can we put this behind us and not lose any valued members to what amounts to an escalated misunderstanding?

I love you guys...

Hey Cali, it was against the TOS, it wasn't a sudden change of heart by the MODS. I have always wondered why some of the avatars have been allowed. I had mine taken away about 15 months ago due to fact that they want the pics in the main forum, be they Avatars or sigs, to be clean and football related. Cheerleaders were allowed for awhile but the people started to get the cheerleaders in really suggestive poses and passed them off as having Dolphins' ties, so Cheerleaders, unfortunately, are off limits too. I hope you reconsider your absence as you do provide good commentary here.

bro - i hope you don't go - i understand you though - i think the mods sometimes forget that there are actual human beings behind the posts - i'm sure it gets easy for them to dehumanize us posters here at times since there are so many of us on this mb - i just hope they take the time to work it out with you fin fan - good posters like you are needed here and should be worth the extra effort

woah. i just realized how much i missed your avator already!!!


im not questioning anything, cause i dont run the site. but i just ask whats the deal with banning dolphin cheerleaders when during the game they show them upclose all the time....i dont get that...

Oboy
09-19-2005, 10:58 AM
I am not sure I even remember Cali's avatar, but if it was just a Cheerleader that does not sound like a violation of TOS. I just reread the TOS to make sure and that does not sound like a violation. I understand if it was suggestive or "sexually explicit".

Mods, can I just have some clarification? I would just like to know what the policy is.

Thanks.

I think that many times, the posters forget that there are actual human beings who are volunteering their time to be mods - I'm sure it gets easy for the members to dehumanize the staff at times.....

This is assenine.

Fin Fan In Cali and BlitPhinFan are two of my favorite posters. If we lose them because of this crap, I'm going to be pi$$ed.

What is the harm of having a pic of cheerleaders anyway? What can someone do to the site?

If they filed sexual harrasment, then they'd have to file it against the NFL too and all the publications that make cheerleading video, calendars, posters, etc...

I don't get it. This is stupid.

I am here manning up for the second time this week. The first time was posting to Smizzy on Jetnation. I am posting this thread after talking to brother d-day, and wildbill3. This is to say let's put the problem with my avatar behind us. Willbill3 didn't know that it was an unwritten rule that you could have them as your avatar, until talking to other mods. I have learned not to make the situation worse in public, to channel your response to the mod, or admin, and be patient for a response. Muck, and d-day you were correct. My avatar is back.

To all my brotherin here at Finheaven I appreciate your support, and PM's as well. I was overwhelmed by the support, and along with bro Blitphinfan.:beerbang:

I ask that the brotherin to take it easy, and let's enjoy Finheaven together. Willbill3 and I have patched this matter up, so let's move on.

How can you not like a guy that pays homage to SRV?

Anyway, after experiencing what it must feel like to touch a stripper (in this case Phins cheerleader in outfit) during a lapdance, and being taken out back by the bouncer (Muck).... :eek: I can say YOU DO NOT TOUCH the Cheerleaders, at least when they are in proper uniform...:lol:

Anyway, we are all winners in this, we keep a valued member, and we get to see the phins cheerleaders as avatars! :D (as I understand it though, they have to be in thier phins outfits, not swimming suits, sorry blitphinpfan:cry: )

Anyway all is good, and we can continue on continuing on!:cooldude:

Hey.. no hard feelings on my part. I understand completely. It was my fault that I never read the avatar section of the TOS, until after my avatar was removed. I am however glad to know that I can use my new one that I have been working on. Thanks Wildbill3. It's great to have Cali back! Now lets do this thing! GO FINS!

Thanks for the support DD28. Cali's was okay. But after I reviewed the TOS for avatars.. mine was in violation. No worries though. I am working on a TOS friendly version and I will be back, now that Cali is all straightened out. I look forward to game day this coming weekend! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I was a little pissed at the mods taking my avatar away because it had the word ******ed in it. Then they explained a poster had a child with developemental issues and it brought him down to see the word. It was a funny avatar but not worth somebody getting depressed over.
