To all Covers users,

As we mentioned in the past, a big part of our ability to operate, update and moderate this forum at Covers.com comes from the relationship with our advertisers. To continue to provide you with the best forum experience through support from our advertisers, we are going to be enforcing our community guidelines in all areas of content and images. 

With many users still not adhering to the guidelines surrounding nude and inappropriate images in customized user avatars, we are forced to enact a stricter policy and temporarily disable all custom avatars. We say temporary as many of you who were following the guidelines will be able to gain your avatar back through our Avatar Approval Process which we will be enabling in the “edit profile” section of your spaces page as soon as possible. Until we have that approval process complete or if you don’t feel like going through the process, we will continue to offer the option of choosing from our existing avatar gallery which we will be updating frequently moving forward.  Changes to custom avatars will take place Monday, November 5th.

Covers would simply not exist without our advertisers so we will adhere to the standards they put in place. We do apologize for the inconvenience but want to ensure you that your experience on our site is our top priority.

Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

I am just stunned by this revelation.

This is the gambling industry, these are people to bet on sports.

What kind of clientele or people or avatars were organizations who advertise on this site expecting !?

LOL at advertisers that sell gambling but are opposed to nudity. presumably for moral reasons, or is it because they want to protect children? (huge LOL)

Advertisers don't like boobies in avs. So they get disabled

Imagine what happens in a dispute with a book?

This has got to be one of the funniest things i have hear in a long time.  Covers doesnt realize they are breaking the firt rule of business and that is to make the customer happy and instead doing what their advertisers tell them.  They should tell the advertisers who are against a little nudity to go take their business some place else, because am sure there will be other advertisers willing to advertise here.  It appears covers is just taking the easy way out to put cashola in their pockets.  What they fail to realize is without the posters, they wont have the advertisers.  One of these days another big site is gonna knock this site off its perch and then covers can look back at 11/05/2012 as the start of their fall, just like the roman empire.

Wowwwwww, I just logged on, my avi is gone. It was a pic of a car, that I had up since I joined, CT should do more of a detailed job and take the avis down that are nude. Corporate america at it again, I guess Covers is becoming like the U S, everything is for sale.

The advertising on Covers is now out of hand and totally obnoxious.  Banner adds in the middle of the threads?  This is becoming an ad site which happens to include Covers.

Most young people won't put up with this much advertising, FYI.  You're going to push away new young users.

Covers resembles a three-ring circus more and more everyday.

GIVE US A PAY AREA

Make it advertising free (other than a few tasteful, small ads)
Let us have whatever avatar we want
Have it an 18+ zone (this is a gambling site for God sakes)
And open up the rules a bit in there.

Revenue stream - check
Appease angry members - check
A place without the newbie children and spammers - priceless

I doubt they have the manpower to go through every single account an evaluate their avatar.

But this solution sucks.  I'm assuming it's only temporary.  I got that impression from what they wrote above.  They're just purging the system for a period of time (I hope!).

I hate advertising and this is why.  Great example of why there's not a "liberal media."
