    This policy has been in place and shown on the avatar page where you upload, but there are several users not following the policy. Including sponsors (Martin!) and long time users (Maranello Man). :) If your avatar is not following the policy, please remove or replace it.

    Custom Avatars - Please! Only avatars of your car(s), yourself, or other acceptable images. No animated gifs either. Violation of this may result in removal from community.

    Thanks everyone, please don't make my job harder than it needs to be.

    Dang! Does this mean the animated Monster Maranello, which has been temporarily replaced by a picture of a cow, has to go for good?

    let me guess - you weren't in the honors classes in high school?

    :)

    sorry - you basically begged for some abuse.

    basically this is just a test. I wanted to see my new, non-moving, rather non-descript, ferrari-related avatar. sniff....snort.....weep.

    the pass was soooooo cool.

    Ummmm..... no, but that's an entirely different issue. :) Since my name wasn't on the hit list (Martin & Maranelloman) and I hadn't recieved an email or PM I was tempted to just wait and see if Rob would let it slide.

    On the subject of avatars it's about time you got a new one:

    Y'all are pretty funny. I've been really easy going, but someone said something in the other thread about once I let a few do something then it kinda multiplies. It was questionable if we should of done avatars in the first place, but I thought if everyone kept it related to them and/or Ferrari enthusiasm it would be OK. Animated avatars just take attention away from what's important, shouldn't be distractions as you're concentrating on reading hundreds of DESirable posts each day. :)

    Love the new Avatar Martin! :) Now Doody's... I dunno about that one. What on Earth is that green thing on the left? It's long, cylindrical, and has a bulbous thing on the end with white stuff coming out of it. And Howdy's giving it a big grin............ HMMM...

    Do I need to make the policy clearer on the avatars page? It's a little hidden in the heading.

    Yeah, I was thinking about how far out we could go toward making sexually suggestive avatars. We're up to PG rating now, I think. I had something irreverent, but appropriate in mind for the cavalino, if you get my drift.
