Thanks.
I'll bump this just for the new page.

Sorry kids, looks like you'll have to find a new theme.

I understand it is technically a family site or whatever, it just pisses me off that people can whine to get what they want, and everyone else has to suffer for it.

I actually find Ailurophile's avy to be more offensive than the other ones.

Damn that sucks. The hilarity and humor on here was almost taking my mind away from the Rangers sucking.

Kittens are adorable. Not a fan of cats, however. Still haven't found a solution to this problem.

Legitimate question: We just can't show the act of inflicting pain or violence right? Blood is apparently acceptable as there are many with avatars

of players/actors/themselves covered with blood from a wound or what-not. Again, this is a serious question, I'm just trying to understand this.

Blood is ok but it's the "act of stabbing" that was offensive?

It's the act of bodily trauma, cartoon or not, that is against site rules.

I'm certainly not arguing. But there are avatars out there that are just as bad if that's the case. I'm fine with whatever, I like this avatar better anyway, but surfing through the main boards for the last 5 minutes I saw avatars that I could apply the same rule towards.

And we are constantly removing avatars that break said rules. This one was a bit more obvious as a sizable demographic of this board was using it.

Would the same picture, but with the sword not having gone through the eye yet (obviously no blood as well), be acceptable?

Well like I said I like this one better anyway I'm just trying to get a better understanding of this rule.

Wow, we're such a society of pansies. There's thousands of children kidnapped everyday, never to be returned to their parents, and yet people are upset over HFBoards avatars. That's just wonderful.

If you're talking about something similar to this:
