Whose decision was this? Was it a former elementary school teacher or principal? Oh my God little Billy saud he's going to kill Johnny, we better do something before he becomes a serial killer and not let him come to school for a week. I'm tired of all these rules. I can't keep up with them for the three minutes I'm on five times a week.

So for a limited time only, my avatar has been changed.
$;o)



I actually like your new avatar. Very distinctive.

There is a rule of comic art - the less detail that a character is drawn with, the more likely that the reader will identify with the character. That's one of the reasons why many comic strips and comic books do not have characters whose faces are drawn with realistic detail.

So, I claim that other people are more likely to see themselves in your avatar and identify with you.
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.

LOL. I take it you didn't see it before I changed it to what it is now.
Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

I don't think I've ever heard of that movie, is it any good by today's standards?



IMO it's a very good movie. Saw it back then, though, so can't give more than a general impression.

Is all this part of a vast conspiracy just so Trump isn't re-elected?

If you would quit missing the meetings you would know. 3rd Tuesday of the month at the Meadows Casino. The center bar near the sports book.

Non mod warning

It would probably be best just to go back to no avatar at all. It seems like there are endless controversies about avatars.

I changed mine before this rules because I grew weary of hearing about it. I changed it to a geographical location that I enjoy.

But, the reason I changed it instead of just deleting it, is because once you add an avatar, you cannot have none (there is no option to remove it), the only option is to upload a different photo.

This on a related technical complaint also applies to profiles, once you add information to a profile text block you cannot delete it (it does not allow black space to be saved).

Even if there never comes to be a rule for deleting/banning all avatars, there should at least be be an option to not have one or restore to default (the generic blank pic).

In an odd coincidence, another member is asking to change to no stored avatar, and I've already made the inquiry. I'll update the forum on what I find out.
