Attention Mods

Mods...I don't want to be a prude, but the ss here is inappropriate for a family site as it depicts a minor in a suggestive position. It should be removed.

I'm confused. Was the screenshot pulled by admins/frogboy, or was it pulled by the author? In either case - does anyone know why?

It was pulled for not meeting the requirement that the background be suffeciently obscured by windows to prevent it from being reused elsewhere.  There is an updated version that addresses this issue in the moderation queue.

It was pulled by admins because the wallpaper wasn't obscured enough as stated in the rules, not because of content.

suffeciently obscured

Okay, I'll go out on a limb. I'm not trying to be a smart a**, but since it wasn't answered previously, how does this apply when using transparent widgets, objects, media skins and other transparent items or transparent effects?

That is how the author had his desktop set-up..customized to his liking.

Going WAY out here on this limb, but still NOT trying to be an a**.... To me, the literal translation would then be that we have to customize the desktops to your liking and/or guidelines. Which means we may not be uploading a desktop that is customized truly the way we use it or like it, which I thought was the point of SS. To show off our desktop set-ups and often inspire others looking for ways to set up or even clue people in on what is available in the skinning community to customize with.

Now I am on the tippy tip of the limb...but I have to wonder if this is why the SS was pulled or the best 'diplomatic' solution.

I think a lot of us may have been in err in our response to the SS. I would like to think that no doors have been 'permanantly' closed on anyone's part and that there is room for one and all to make amends and forgive and forget.

All you have to do is open notepad and have it cover enough of the desktop to make cutting the wall out.

But having said that . . would the people who left be happy if the lady in question's rear or face was obscured?  Probably not.

It's a sad time for me when I return here after ten days to find that three artists, people I had grown to admire and whose latest work I'd always been eager to see, have left and taken their work with them. I'm shocked and amazed that an unknown contributor who posted a wall, of little quality, could have created this amount of mayhem, anger, sadness and upheaval. The chain of emotional events that followed here have led me to examine and question my own behaviors and involvement in online virtual communities and forums. I'm still working through the event that led me to be absent from here for those ten days, the passing of my father, May he rest in Peace. Life's all about changes, and the choice whether or not to grow stronger with them. Cheers to everyone who stood up on their hind legs for what they believe in.

I'm deeply moved. Your thoughts mean more than you may know.
He was 92, I'm 65. Feels like that little pac-man's gobbling along right behind me, now. Makes you kind of think and take stock of just where you are on the timeline. In all recorded history, we just get a blink here and we're gone again. "life's but a poor player...who struts and frets his hour upon the stage...and then is heard no more". Kinda bleak-sounding, but it has occurred to me lately. My son's Cub Scout Motto, "Do Your Best", sounds good. So does kickin' ass and takin' names!
"Plus la change", eh? Ride the wave when it comes. (note to surf-rats: "Outside!!)
