I didn't get a mail either......but I got a pm.....

Dear HANNAH!,

I am politely requesting for you to remove your signature.

The e-mail that was sent aroud to all members clearly stated that signatures need to somehow be Bones related. As yours is not, I am asking you to please remove it.

If you choose not to, the Administrators of the forum will have no choice but to take further action. Please note that you have already received an itial warning, and refusal of two requests may constitute in another warning.

Please note that the decision to disallow all signatures not related directly to Bones was not one taken lightly.

Thank You

Administrator

still don't get it why I can have violence-glorifying things up just as long as it is Bones-related......but since this time I even got reminded that I'm already on the bad-kids-list, I guess I'll go look for something bones-related.....

Yes, which is how I found out about this 'rule'. I am just really confused...I could unintentionally annoy a lot more people with a Hannah/Booth sig than I could with a nice inspirational quote, so I'm just at a loss as to how that rule will avoid any problems. *shrugs*

Let me get this straight - ONE person had a problem with ONE person's SIG and now there is a "rule" that only BONES SIG's are allowed at TFF? huh
"For the record" I am in complete disagreement with this rule. Address the person with the SIG in question and move on (which seems to have happened). If the person removed the SIG there shouldn't be a need to address the rest of the forum and tell THEM they can't have non BONES related SIG's.
Note: This is a form of censorship, one of the main the reasons The ABY was started.

It is not ONE person having a problem with ONE person's sig. If it were as simple as that we would be handling things differently.

As long as the smiley is included in something 'Bones' related it is absolutely fine.

OK. I still feel that making a "rule" of BONES only SIGS is censorship. This is the internet where hundreds of millions of people come -- SOMEONE is ALWAYS going to be offended by something. Don't like it? Don't look at it or read it is my philosophy. I will follow the rules because I do like this site, but it doesn't mean that I agree with this type of censorship.

Yes, but it's not nice to use a quotation without citing where you got it from.

If my quote offends you, I will take it down. I'm a civil person and I have no problems with that. However, I was refraining from switching to an all Bones sig until I got an answer to my question from an admin.

Not about you. You asked about the burn notice quote on my sig. Just answering your question. Smile

Well then, I will ask another one. Why is a Burn Notice quote allowed on your sig if they all have to be Bones related? I realize you're trying to use it as a way to show that you'd like to kill Hannah, but I don't feel that's justification. The quote is not directly related to Bones. However, I suppose that's open to interpretation...

The quote is used within a cartoon statement about a character on Bones. And, actually, if you read my sig... it's not about wanting to kill anyone. :lol:

Oh good grief! People don't get banned for disliking or liking a character. If we could do that I would be banning everyone who does not like Brennan.
