Can changing avatar to "banned" get you banned?

I was going to change my image to that of the "banned" stamp just for shits and giggles but I don't want to make it look like I'm taunting or looking for trouble.

    Why would you want yours to say banned?

    Yep its against site rules but i see people do it quite often and get away with it. Someone on the site I know has had a banned avatar for over 8 months without being caught lol

    It's not against the rules. It just means if we see you with one, the staff will lock you up in p1ng's basement.

    I put my avatar to the "Banned" image and a staff member deleted it on me over a year ago. I bickered with the person saying that it is not written in the site rules but I was told that I could not have it as that anyways. I forget whom the staff member was, but I gave up on it. I like my evil DeadlyFoez image more anyways.

    I did that over a year or two ago. I was warned to change it or get actual banned.

    It's frowned upon and might earn you a warning (either verbal or a forum one) but it won't get you banned.

    What about if you flip it upside-down and/or rotate it?
  • Chary
    Sep 13, 2018
    Then you get an upsidedown warning
  • kikongokiller

    Now we need more information on upsidedown warnings. Do they count as 2 regular warnings? Or maybe more...
  • DinohScene
    Sep 14, 2018
    They count double that of a regular warning.

    What if it's upside-down and mirrored? Is that a negative two points?

    I remember at some point it was a trend to use the BANNED avatars. I've had one too for a bit, though I think I put a hat on it or something. That was several years ago though - maybe not too long after the BANNED images were introduced in the first place.

    Hmm, perhaps I should ask shaun to cook up a 'dnepsuS' button for users that have that : D

    Upside down warning, aka Australia warning

    You'll get that warning with a boot!

    Had the banned avatar and it got removed. I've also got a warning (with no points) which has been removed before a few months.
