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.

Why do these jerk advertisers come on and hijack the forum for free and there is never anyone to get rid of them?  It's all over the NCAAF this morning. Come on. It's Sat. friggin morning when everyone is logging on. You know this happens all the time. By the way, I like your new clean up and make money campaign, about time on that but about time your have staff got around to paying attention to these fools raiding the forum and clogging it up. What about that???

GL,    Doc

Is there a way to utilize only the babe pics covers uses?  Seems like that would satisfy both sides.

As Covers knows, I have been trying to bring decency to this site ever since they merged with Wagerline, so I welcome this new standard.

Amen ?

If your going to do away with the custom avatars at least get some decent looking ones in your gallery.

This is pathetic, I didn't have a Nude avatar and most people didn't, yet we all get punished for the ones who did...makes no sense at all. And, if nude is offending some advertiser, get rid of them, not the avatars, if we all weren't here, then who the darn would they advertise to?? Tell them to darn off, not us!! I say we all give this 2 more days and if the avatars aren't restored, we leave. I think that's fair.

I have been on here for 5 years now and my avitar was a picture of squaw valley ski resort showing the ski runs of the mountain! REALY your advertisers will not fund you or find it offensive if we show pictures of a mountian resort in neveda/california. Repectfully i would love to have a response please thank you and have a great capping day.

I agree with those that say this is bs. This is a sports forum made up of 99% male viewers posters. Males like tits and behind.

Is this becoming a PG family site?

These ads blow anyway, they aren't even sports related. You signed up with a banner rotator, get paid x per view, per hit, per showing and say to your loyal members that money is more important to you than your loyal member base.

I guess it's time to go back to freaksforum and be able to have my tit picture and while it may not be as busy as here, at least there are service plays and newsletters as well.

Appreciate the time here but until I get my avatar back which wasn't tits or behind, I am out.

I'll make sure my Avatar is a half naked guy just for you Don Juan.

Amen right Don Juan?

Covers you are out of your mind for doing this. I didn't even know you guys advertised. But, I did know there were some nice Avatar's to look at when I was doing my research. I know you all think we are like DonIDon'tLikeGirls but we are not.

There are those who point out that without the Visitors your Advertisers have no audience. They have a point. Given the nature of the subject matter at hand, setting clear but liberal standards seems appropriate.

In the recent election the tight behind conservatives got their head handed to them by a majority of voters. It wasn't because their candidate was so bad as much as it was their POLICIES were bad. 

Learn that lesson.
