[ELAPSED] Political Avatars are Right Out!

Postby Reichu » Thu Nov 10, 2016 12:23 pm

For the same reasons that the 2016 Election thread has been, for the time being, put in lock-down mode, there will now be a ban on avatars of a political nature. Since "political" is terribly broad, this can be more specifically understood to mean avatars politically motivated in any way by the events of the 2016 U.S. election cycle and its aftermath. This policy is equal opportunity, so avatars celebrating Trump's victory are permitted no more than avatars degrading Trump and his supporters.

This policy will remain in effect until such time as the staff decides the air has sufficiently cleared. Willful attempts to circumvent this policy with borderline examples will not be tolerated. If you honestly think your avatar choice has the potential to be volatile, ask one of us privately before you use it.

The staff has decided that the air has sufficiently cleared. Potential cases of "trolling by avatar" will still be considered and handled individually, but the blanket ban has been lifted.
