about NWS avatars and images...etc

yeh so my avatar was removed a couple months ago because some members complained that it was NWS...
it was a ganja leaf walking down the street minding his business..lol..my avatar that is...

and obviously it bothered people...and thats kool...

i was just wondering what about the sponsor banners we have at the top of the site? i guess a ganja leaf is NWS but girls in thongs and bikinis are appropriate for the work environment???

just wondering if any1 thought they should be removed as well..as much as we might like looking at them..they are definitely NWS as well...

so yeh..

AGREED! Not only thats its NWS but NGFS (Not Girl Friend Safe) When they pop up my girl gets pissed and says "so thats why you go to this fourm" i cant stand when she says that and hate when the banners are like that. It's bad enought that my girl dosen't like me all about my car all the time but then she has to worry about me looking at half naked asian girls. ( My girl thinks I have a thing for Asians)

sort of agree on the NWS aspect of the banner. i think the ganja leave is criminal though, thats why they removed it.

I don't agree with that.
Why would it be criminal to show leaf of the plant?
Nobody drags National Geographic (or Discover Channel) to court then they show field of poppy flowers or any other plant that could used to make illegal drags.

Itís criminal what people do with those plants.

lol criminal...lol...


it was a ganja leaf with 2 eyes walking down the street....real criminal...
anyways a mod hasn;t chimed in yet so i guess we will have to see...

i mean i can already see them saying that NO those banners wont be removed because well they pay v6p to have those banners up...and it helps with the bills etc...
wheras v6p could care less if i or any1 of u were a member here or not lol...

i was jus wondering is all...

girls in thongs and bikinis and people looking at them from work is hell of a lot more offensive than a leaf walking around...which btw was 100x100 pixel gif if even that big lol...whereas the banners are 500x100 and so...

drug related avatars and sigs are not appropriate here. the banners are a different story. I don't like the girly ones either, but they do help pay for the site. an admin would have to comment further on that since i have no control over that.

how bout we do have a process in which the removal of any material is explained. and not just kept to PMs, so that other members are also aware of what is and not allowed.

why dont some of the admins address this point then? its extremely annoying to have to turn off "show pics" to keep this website worksafe.

How about not surfing the net while at work? I'm sure your boss will appreciate that.

Not trying to be an ass or anything, but if the admins say its fine then it will remain on the website. I'm sure this has been discussed amongst them before the ads were initially put on the site.

lol. nice one.

i actually use this site for work, it gives me great insight on the auto industry trend. i would say a lot of my Value added research does indeed come from here.

all i wanted was an admins view on this. so far i dont think we have recieved that.

damn, steve you really cracked me up with that comment.

The left two probably not. The one on the right with the deep shadowing is probably ok.

Hate to step on your party fellas, but this topic really isn't up for discussion at all. Our avatar/sig policy stands in it's current form was NWS and will continue to be as such. The banners are an exception and don't fall under the immediate shadow of the "Avatar/Sig Policy"

Cheers
