I agree that the avatars should only be about lincolns. This forum is about the cars we love, not our pretty faces. :grin:

Here are the original rules for avatars:

There are some RULES for avatars. Maximum height and width is 140 wide by 100 tall. Maximum size is 10kB. The width is already the width of the name column. The height is just something reasonable.

You can upload a personal avatar by accessing your Profile and scrolling to the bottom to the avatar configuration area or you can choose from a wide variety of Lincoln pics I have uploaded.

I would prefer that one's avatar content meet the following:

* Pics of LINCOLNS, Lincoln parts, Lincoln Logos, etc.
* Pics of YOURSELF and your family (with or without a Lincoln)
* General car-related parts that are not recognizable as being non-Lincoln.
* Avatars must be single pics and cannot be animated gifs.
* Pics that are directly related to your Username.


However, since I consider those who use this forum to be more civilized, respectful of others, and more mature than the "typical" forum-user on the internet due to the owners being older and focused on restoring and preserving their Lincolns, I will allow users to chose avatars that do not meet the above content requirements.

Of course, all pics must be tasteful and non-offensive. Anything outside of this may get deleted, without warning. Abuse of avatars may result in penalties such as deletion of the avatar, or deletion of the user.

DO NOT COMPLAIN about the avatar rules. They are strict to maintain the dignity of this forum. Much like signature rules, they are critical to the forum not looking like crap.

There are a bunch in the gallery. Otherwise, you are free to make your own avatar.

Enjoy this feature.
In view of recent threads in the Lounge, maybe some of this should be re-worded. :stick:
