Default Unanswered: Profile Pictures?

Ok, I've heard people say things like,"No, pics of yourself, especially on your profile." Well, what does this mean?

Profile pictures are small pictures of yourself, which are displayed within your user profile.
I am not AT ALL calling anyone a lier or any other name! I just want to know which one is right!

Default Re: Profile Pictures?

Webkinz Insider rules are no personal pics. - This goes for profiles, avatars and forums.

It probably came like that with the program they use to power the forums. I am not sure it is interchangeable at all, but it wouldn't hurt asking them. - If they can, I'm sure they will look into it!

EDIT:

Here is the information directly from the forum rules:

WELCOME TO WEBKINZINSIDER.COM! We're glad to have you here!

We feel these guidelines will be useful for the Mods in terms of managing the forums, but just as importantly, we hope they provide users a point of reference with which to understand the basic nature of WI and also to gauge why a post may have been moderated. The ultimate aim of it all though is to enable you to ENJOY contributing to WI and for others to ENJOY your contributions.

What is set out below is not an absolute set of rules and regulations. It will be necessary at times to moderate posts for reasons that are not outlined below.

Absolutely NOT: Things deemed to be totally unacceptable:

* Posting Personal Information (last name, age, city, school, phone number, etc)
* Posting Personal Pictures (or pictures of friends, family, etc, anyone who is not a celebrity)
* Attempting to discuss trades outside of the Gift Exchange area (see note below)
* Pornographic material
* Racism
* Overt personal abuse or threats to other posters or staff
* Swearing (There are kidz here for Heaven's Sake!)
* Harassment of other users or posting anything which would invade their privacy
* Spam (including Chain Letters)
* Commercial advertising
* Registering and using duplicate accounts after being banned or for any reason.
* Creating fake news or doctoring of images.
* All other breaches of the basic Forum Terms & Conditions in place at your time of registration or at any time during your membership of WI.

I know how much WebkinzInsider feels like a *family*but please remember,
we're on the internet and your Online-Safety is our number one concern.
Thank you all so much.

Default Re: Profile Pictures?

That is really wierd.

---------- supermina added 2 Minutes and 10 Seconds later ----------

I know someone who has a picture of there self, but I am not goiing to tell the username because everyone is going to go to her profile and start commenting her and she will get confused. So I think both.

Default Re: Profile Pictures?

I beleive the conflict is that the term "Profile" is generically used on many forums. It usually is info and possibly a picture of ones self. As stated, WI does not allow Personal Info or Pics for safety reasons. I think it is great that we can add some of our favorite things by way of decorating our profiles and share a bit of ourselves without needing a picture.

Default Re: Profile Pictures?

We're not allowed to post ANY personal pictures. Pets, and our webkinz are fine... just no family members. Including yourself. The FAQ definently needs to be changed lol!

Default Re: Profile Pictures?

I noticed that when I first signed up but figured it was either a slight mistake or the whole reason why they told us no profile pictures of our selves was because that said we could and maybe they can't change it.
