Hello,
I have used an avatar that was WWII nose art/pinup. Ubi warns that if the avatar is offensive you will be banned. Well, in the Uru forum I was asked to change my avatar. I am not sure who the person asking was (moderator type or not) but wondered if they're complaint could cause a ban. Have we come to the point that girls in bikinis are too lude for forum use? Mine were not naked. This is sad, I work for Uncle Sugar and live in terror of a female acusing me of having a scantily clad girl poster in my office or on my computer. I had hoped that was a federal government sickness.

The standards in the IL2 forums are considerably looser than in the Uru forums. Uru is family game, with players from preschool age on up and a large number of female players. They tend to be very strict on anything that might be perceived as sexual stereotyping or exploitation, even quite mild stuff. If you're going to post over there, remove all hints of ribald comment and semi-nudity from your sigs and avatars. Bans are now universal on this new software, if the mods there ban you, you wont be able to post here either.

Most of the game forums on the Ubi boards have a game specific "Rules of Conduct" thread stickied at the top of their main forum. I recommend that you read them in each forum before posting, as rules do differ a little from one game forum to another.

I did a search and found an example of the pic you refer to. It would pass on this forum, but I can see why Uru asked you to take it down. If you wish to create a different logon to use there, you could put it back in the sig you use here if you want.

Thx for the reply, I'll just find another avatar, I hope a growling Gnome won't offend them. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If I were in your shoes - I simply would not be able to help myself. I would have to find a picture of a Gnome in a bikini and use that!
