Partners, Family Members and Friends of MS Survivors,

We have had an inconsistently enforced policy in the past concerning the use of current photographs as avatars. We do understand that for some of you your avatars are important personal statements, but for various good reasons our Board of Directors would like us to avoid those bearing adult photos of ourselves. So we would like to ask all of you who are using such avatars to please change these. There's no need to rush. We'll check around in a week or so and PM those of you who haven't found something else you like yet.

You will notice that our President, Curtis St. John, retains his avatar with his current photo. This is because Curtis is the public face of MaleSurvivor; he makes appearances as our official representative and gives interviews and speaks to the press on our behalf.

May I ask what the various good reasons are? if a person feels comfortable and safe enough to have their current picture up, why cant they? Im certainly not trying to cause any negative problems here, I'm just curious.
