Welcome to Cambodia Expats Online!

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Flynn has nailed it.

CEO is SFW.

Check it out, can be done. (disabled that is). :good:

Gotta throw you some Karma for that, Flynn.

Ha! Me neither. my vote was for keeping the avatars SFW, but simply disabling seems easy enough.

Yeah, I had to use it on that other forum for awhile. It is useful but it is either all or none. I wish there was an option to pick and choose whose avatars to block.

That's why I'm in favour of keeping them half decent.

I'd hate to see NO avatars, and I'd hate to have to be changing my settings every time I wanted to revert back.

GMack,

I agree that avatars should be decent but "the Original Sin" that got OD booted and hence this site started WAS the avatar.

My complaint was the movement not the subject. Yes other petty stuff was flying around, so petty I can't remember what.

Now i'm confused, should we stand on principle and allow (even mandate) lewd avatars (although there are better,

cleverer choices) or "fight for freedom".

What am I missing here?

ps: SFW= Work or Woman, I think the site should be woman friendly too.

My original suggestion was a JOKE, there is currently no real restriction on the avatar on the old forum (recently an women in string doing hula hoop was display without any sanction) , certainly none on this one. The user on both forum usually auto restrict themselves.

I think I will add NTBTS at the end of most of my statement "NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY"

Just use a wink. ;)

What other reason than OD's avatar then.

I think the crucial part you're forgetting about is that he was singled out. There was at least one or two other avatars that were just as sexy, but they only deleted his.

Whatever guidelines we set for avatars will be applied to everyone, including the admin/mod team.

My vote is to keep them somewhat work friendly, but not G-rated.
