Do you think that mylot should enforce soem sort of regulations monitoring some members avatars? Are lingerie wearing shots of girls sprawled across a bed appropriate for a community forum? For that matter, is a picture of someone kissing another person appropriate? What sorts of photos do you consider to be appropriate/inappropriate?

Yes this would be ok to do. Your showing people that nasty picture. Why can't others do the same. Out of all the pictures on mylot. I truely feel yours is the worst. Kissing is nasty and you promote nastiness. Your free to list it if mylot allows. But shoot your sapose to be a proud mother would your baby not do?

Nasty? I saw no tongue. No one was playing tonsil-hockey in that pic. If they were, I couldn't see it. No one was grabbing anything inappropriate. It was just a simple kiss. I honestly don't see how a simple kiss could be more offensive than a picture of a girl with only an inch strip of cloth covering her "vitals".

I really haven't seen any Avatars that are too inappropriate. I think that some people have personalities that are a bit more risque than others, and this is portrayed in their choice of Avatar. The Avatar is supposed to provide a hint of your personality, after-all.

Well it varies from country to country, In our country the picture of kissing another person will also be inappropriate but it is ok where it is a very normal thing.

I didnt realise that kissing was that inappropriate or offensive... If it is upsetting to some cultures I am more than happy to change it...

i dont have a problem with avatars...as long as it's not of some other movie stars...i find it funny that some men love to put up some pretty women up as an avatar, hoping to get good response!!

Yes because some of the members of mylot are young.

Well, I really think it's up to mylot to decide what's appropriate and what's not. Since they enforce rules on guidelines, I can't believe they're not as strict to the avatars as well.

I don't have a problem with them so far.I have not seen any bad ones(some are very silly) and I pay more attentin to the discussions and not the avatars.

I believe that more stringent control of overtly suggestive avatars would be appropriate for mylot. They are an unfortunate distraction in my opinion, which diminishes the dignity of the forum. The owners of such might consider that they are an expression of some aspect of their personality, but even so, it would be inappropriate to have a particular "statement" of such distracting nature inserted into every discussion that the member chooses to become involved in.
