It's funny how most users ask to check avatars that are obviously okay :ROFLMAO:. I think they just want to know what people think of their avatars, and honestly I want too, how does it look? :).

But seriously, I'm really here to ask about this image. I will not use it now but I would like to do it later, but I thought that for the bottom part it could be considered inappropriate.

Yeah, it's fine. There's nothing actually there so there's not really anything to be a problem.

In regards to how the guidelines largely involve potentially sexual content; I've inquired on whether certain images are allowed based on blood. And... though this image below doesn't incorporate blood, it involves decapitation and at least framing that heavily implies headlessness.

Would such imagery be allowed in these forums? Does this apply to other severed body parts in general despite a lack of blood?

Talked it over with a few staff and consensus seems to be no. =( It's a little too graphic/gruesome even if there's no blood.

Nothing too graphic/detailed and it's more silly than anything. Seems fine to me!

Think you changed it since you last posted but current one is fine, feel free to post again if you're unsure about other ones down the line (y) Sorry for missing it
