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.
