Ok, I was in the process of making an avatar, and before I
could put it in as my avatar, I noticed something that I was'nt
sure would be acceptable or not.

Basically the avatar is of BIllie Piper in a black dress.
The part I'm not sure of would be iniappropriate is that theres
wind blowing up a section of her dress exposing half of one of
her butt cheeks and her undergarments.

Now I know it does'nt constitute pornography in most sense,
but I wanted to play it safe and ask rather than getting a reprimand.


Thanks for taking the time to Read & Respond.

Dude, an avatar of mine many moons ago was deemed inappropriate because a cartoon woman wrapped in a flag was exposing a little cleavage.
So I'm not sure about your case but I'm interested to see the answer, though I have a feeling it's just going to be a post with a link to the T&C.

Nope, just doesn't cut it. Not a bad image, how ever I can tell that some would find an issue with it, even though swim suits are more reveiling. Good job playing it safe.

You know what, lets get a second opinion here...

From Avatar and Signature Guidelines.




Erotic, Suggestive, Violent or Illegal Content

ATS and BTS is a diverse community with a mission to help people understand important issues from current events and history. Due to an evolution from women in bathing suits to women wearing less while in suggestive poses that often detracts from the mission, the following content guidelines apply to the content of both avatars and signatures:
1) No photos of persons wearing less than shirt-and-shorts.
2) No artwork (non-photo) of persons wearing less than bathing attire.
3) No persons, or lnks to persons in a sexually suggestive pose.
5) No persons engaged in what would be considered an obscene gesture.
6) No persons pointing weapons at the viewer of the image.
7) No images or links to images containing blood or gore.
8) No images or links to content containing people involved in an illegal act.
9) No images or links to images containing illegal objects.
10) No images that are taunting in nature toward any person or group of persons.
11) Other content, which at the discretion of forum staff, is designed to be vulgar, obscene, or offensive to the majority of ATS and BTS visitors and members.

It,s funny you should say that because I was about to change my avatar to Kylie Minogue eating strawberries out of Angelina Jolie,s naval..

Very tastefully prtrayed and I feel it conveys a very politically correct Pro vegetarian belief..

Would this be OK with you guys?

Great Moderators here. Their fair and resolute from what I see they post in respect to this board and it's members in a potentially problematic argument.

Is this a bad time to mention Billie Piper is from Swindon and I may have seen her on more than a couple occasions?

LOL, Majic. But who is that guy in the suit at the far right? No robe? Heretic!!!

BTW, iori_komei, her boobs are 3x as big as her butt. Not a good sign, imho.


And what the @#$% is "The United Commonwealth"?

I had one of Jessica Alba wearing a bikini and was asked to remove it. Yet i've seen others later wearing the same thing.
I think it depends on who the mods are and if they're hungry or not.

I don't understand why so many members use avatars that are so revealing. There seems to be an accent on the provocative.
