    Its not clever, smart, or cool to use an avatar that.....

    1. Makes you look like a doner where you are not
    2. Makes you look like you have a higher post count than you do
    3. Attempts to make to make you look like something you are not by mimicking the BHW forum layout, rep, thanks, or any other feature.


    If you are caught doing this, you will get a ban. Don't do it.

    That thread was funny, and obviously satirical, I have to wonder about people who set their avatar that way and left it - what did they think would happen.

    Fail.

    Lol I remember that thread, funny thread was funny.


    Then...


    IT GOT WAY OUT OF HAND


    everyone was doing it, and it wasn't to long before the internet was full of these imposters...

    but luckily, there was action taken to put an end to it all.

    I noticed some explicit pornographic avatar last few days. We should keep in mind, we have lots of 13-17 years old members here.

    That was a truly funny thread! I wasn't sure if that guy was taking the piss with us by pretending... but LOL.

    Makes you understand how so many shitty WSO's are sold!

    Exactly. I am 17, but leave that, I dont mind those avatars. But what happens is, when I keep my laptop on, or when I am browsing through BHW, and my Mom/Dad/Sister pass through, I dont want them see Nude girls sitting, stick figures fucking each other, Supermario fapping for 1 up or even, bouncing boobs and all pf those shit lol. Seriously that makes me feel bad.

    Atleast give us an option to turn off avatars. So that you people can still enjoy using/seeing those avatars and I can make it OFF just for myself. :D
