    First idea....spell avatar correctly.
    I officially retract my vote for DDS as Prime Minister. He's clearly incompetent.

    First option solves the problem, then if someone wants to see the avatars it's on them. Simple tweak I hope.

    Changing the default makes the most sense to me.

    I said the 2nd option. You should have to be a full memeber to view everything and have the options to turn things off once inside. Kind of like added perks for signing up instead of just being a lurker.

    Agreed. I also checked the 1st option so that those who are offended by Santa's naughty daughter don't have to see it by default. Kind of like having to turn on the TV set before you see anything.
    I thought I wanted a career; turns out I just wanted paychecks.

    Setting it to off would be my option, that way people could use the site at work, around children etc...... That way it makes everyone happy.

    Re: The Edm Sun make work project poll

    Maybe change up the registration script to say that there may be some "objectionable" material and use discretion, explain options for avatars, etc?

    I would think that it would be good for Phil to try and set up a meeting with the powers at be at the Esks and have a heart-to-heart. Couldn't hurt.

    Re: The Edm Sun make work project poll

    I think the best option would be to set avatar viewing to off, and alert the user when he first signs up that it's off and give the option/warning right there to turn it off or on.

    Maybe the addition of a hack that allows users to pick and choose avatars at a later time would be helpful as well?

    They don't directly have anything to do with this site, and that's what makes it fun. Too much corportate influence means less excitement. It's grass-roots...let's keep it that way.

    BTW Calf.....what does Ted Hellard think of Red's (?) avy? The one with two chicks groping each other....ever got a comment from him?

    Hey I know
    Lets change the name to EskSaints.com, and not say anything dirty, show any pics at all, and have all of our posts copied from what media the Sun is putting out!

    That would be swell, huh chaps?
    Oh, well just my thoughts, Pip Pip cheerio good mates!

    Re: The Edm Sun make work project poll

    Well with the whopping mandate of the 3.4% of the membership who have voted thusfar along with the ongoing discussions on this general issue that goes back to the fall we are making a few changes that reflect towards options 1 & 2

    Content will be discussed at a later time.

    yeah... as much as I preferred 4 over 1, 1 makes more sense. Less work for us mods as well!

    Don't let the Esks push you around. Don't be cowed by public sentiment.

    They have no right over an independent / unaffiliated board.

    It may come as a suprise to the Eskimos organization, but some football fans, and some Eskimo fans like T&A.

    I sure hope the Eskimos themselves aren't mad about this whole situation. I'd like to hear from one of them if possible to see if the Sun is spinning their story too.

    Re: The Edm Sun make work project poll

    We have spoken to the Esks about the Avatar situation. They understand that this is an independent site and will not (and can not) make us change it.

    Also, as Diez and I have pointed out in various threads, the Avy changes (and some other site changes) have been discussed since after the GC (well, since after recuperating from GC hangovers). The Sun has not forced us to make these changes as they would have been made before TC anyways... we've just had to accelerate our timetable.

    Over and out.

    That said we will be making a few changes on our own. It wasn't our desire to ruffle feathers, just to have a laid back site with good dialogue.
