Message 628771 - Posted: 29 Aug 2007, 11:03:48 UTC

Hi everyone.

Recently, I came across a terrific picture which I thought would match my nickname perfectly (Sirius Black - the half dark wizard) & would love to use it.

However, even though I find it very hilarious, some people mind find it offensive & that is not my wish.

So, can you guys give me permission to try it & if found offensive, I'll remove it instantly.

I know that this is the NC threads, but could not find anywhere to mention topics such as this.

Description of proposed avatar - The Grim Reaper with a laughing ghostly skull to his left & on his right, giving the "bird"

If given the go ahead to try, would like comments on it please.

PLEASE NOTE - NO OFFENSE IS INTENDED!

Might be a good idea to let people see it and comment on it if you're that worried.

There's usually a thread in the Cafe called 'Testing for signatures and BBCode', or something like that - that might be an appropriate place for a toe in the water.

But post it as an inline image first, not a signature or avatar - as I'm sure you're aware, if you change those, it chages all your existing posts too.

I move it to the cafe.

So you can change it if you like.

We moderators can tell you if it is offensive or not.

Thanks Mike, please see my thread "Disappearing Posts" in NC & accept my apologies for being stupid in not checking.

That would be inappropriate as an avatar.

You could e-mail it to the setimods e-mail address at Berkeley and ask if it would be appropriate as an avatar. Alternatively, you could ask one of "The 30," poster advocate group!

And a sensible conclusion we got, just shows you how it can be done. 10/10 to all concerned.


Yes, I quite agree. I was always taught by my late parents that If you are unsure of something, rather than just going ahead & doing it, Ask.

I am totally useless at drawing & editing drawings etc.

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to take out the wagging finger?

Hi Mike

I've managed to edit it, please let me know if this is acceptable & please accept my apologies. I totally forgot about being kid friendly.

I let you know.

Thanks Champ.

I'll wait for a while just to be on the safe side.

I must admit that I have a wicked sense of humour which during my lorry driving days (especially on April fool's Day) got me into a lot of trouble.

Unfortunately for me, I forgot myself & did not stop to think of minors.
