(Forum mod.. before you send me that warning email about my post  please tell me what you do about HIM.)

SO the whiniest poster on this forum has stolen my Avatar ( Exactly copy).

Is this a first?   Is this what the kids call Majorly triggered?

I must have really hit his button yesterday : )

Cyber crush?

This is why having admirers is not always a good thing. :Smile_veryhappy:

I don't think that there's anything that would prevent anyone from using any forum avatar they want. Most of the avatars here in the forums contain  copyrighted material that's being technically illegally used.

+1.    It's tacky to use an avatar you know is already being used by another member.  

But, every member here could opt for the exact same one...wouldn't that be an odd sight.

We could have forum clans, all with the same clan avatar.

Aloha,

So there is no rule or TM on avatar pictures, so I am unsure what you wish us to do. The best way to stop someone from bugging you? Ignore them, move along, stop replying to posts by them or anything, if there is an actual personal attack, report it, if it's in game, put a ticket in and submit the replay, if its in chat, take a screen shot and send it to ME.

As for discussing moderation we NEVER do that and never will, that is our policy and it probably will not change.

Also, if someone is bugging you or there is beef (mmmm beef), it's best to just move along. No need to let a petty digital brawl effect your day to day life. Not saying it is necessarily but ya.

Mahalo,

-Hapa

Unless you own the rights to that avatar, you got nothing to complain about. 

Yeah, I kinda like Ducky's avatar but I am not good at ducking.

I thought having admirers was a good thing. I mean is it admiration if a player is called 50ShadesofSteel? 🤔

It is good to be admired by ordinary people, about whom there is nothing special.

If, however, one were admired predominantly or exclusively by the likes of pirates, murderers, slavers and child molesters, that might be a different matter. :Smile_trollface:

Then you've got self-centered people like me with their avatar being their name :Smile_hiding:.

So funny thing about my avatar: it was created using a my little pony creation engine to create your own pony. That said, the pony is an OC, so I think that's okay, or at least very common, but the problem starts with the cutie mark. The cutie mark is a Yellow all-seeing eye. Fans of Gravity Falls would immediately jump to thinking I used Bill Cipher. While I do appreciate that show, and that character as a very good villain, I actually originally created this avatar about a year before Gravity Falls started airing, and what's worse is I designed it offering to shake hooves, something that is very Bill Cipher in nature. That said, I don't know how legal my avatar is, but I still love it, especially since it has come to mean so much more than I originally intended by sheer accident.

Well, all I know is that your avatar is safe from me. I won't be stealing it. One of my little nieces might but they are too young to play WOWS.

Ah, I see your point. I'm certain it's not all of those, but good to know.

Unlike the OP, I do own that avatar, but if you use it, I'd just consider it advertising for free.
