On the issue of stealing Avatars....

I havent seen it much but i noticed that someone took Chromekillas avatar... Thats stupid because whenever i see his avatar and see his post i think its him and it ends up being a lame post.

i think there should be a rule like if you have had your avatar (one that no one has) for 12 months or over 1000 posts it should be yours and only yours otherwise i (and im sure others) will get confused or in the least annoyed when someone with under 100 posts and spams almost gives a bad name to the avatar.

I thought it would be a good idea. I don't know how it would it would work, but it would be nice.

I mean, it wouldnt be that hard to ad a rule saying that you cant add a custom avatar that someone else already has. Eh... Who knows....

Thumbs up

This question/argument has been brought up before, guys.

The fact is that we can't restrict avatar use as much as you guys think we can. Don't get me wrong- I agree, it's nothing but annoying to see someone use an avatar already in use by a PBF vet and give them a bad name, but as staff we just can't do anything about it.

Why, you may ask?

Those pictures can be from anywhere around the internet and unless it was made by you specifically or you own the rights of that pictures (even more unlikely), we can't restrict its use. Make/customize your avatar if you so desire, but remember that this is the internet and people usually don't care for respecting the reputation or property of others.

Like I said, I wish we could restrict avatars but it'd be ridiculously difficult to police. If you so desire, think about it this way: because they're posing you/someone else's avatar, that just means that they're trying to capitalize on your rep. After all, you've got a "cool" avatar, so be comfortable knowing that someone thinks well enough to copy you.


As for Pawner-

You got banned three times. I don't see what you're trying to prove to everyone by saying you were reckless and immature enough to get banned not once, not twice, but THREE times. Whether you were here or not, it doesn't matter. You got banned, and that's a message from the staff that we didn't want you back due to your actions.

You need to grow up. It doesn't make sense that you came back purely for selling and commented on how "all the cool people got banned"- that tells everyone you came back because you don't know how to move on from your cool internet buddies.

Quit the flaming or I'll warn/ban you again. Everyone else, keep your cool...this discussion isn't worth getting a warning over.

Well if you made it you can put a copyright on it. Other than that like DSG said you can't do much about it. Ussaully I place a person with there sig, not there avi because people are always stealing them.

Just wondering on some sites i go to(not por*) the pictures or text i'll try to right click on it and it will say copy righted or unauthorized. Could it be possible to do that only when someone try's to right click on someone's avatar?

No, I'm pretty sure that if you code that, it's for the whole page.
