Hello, I am posting here because I don't know where to post this.

One of the this guy's GIFs in his signature is a ridiculous 1.5 mb, and the signature itself is huge.

I hope I do not need to comment on the fetish nature of the avatar.

https://mugenguild.com/forum/profile/ryou-75836

This signature is over 300 kb and arguably not safe for work:

https://mugenguild.com/forum/profile/arcbeast-92153

This signature is over 400 kb and the entire profile is something I would not categorize as safe for work either (he speaks about sex without a condom, really):

https://mugenguild.com/forum/profile/dead-or-alive-fan-5995

This one is safe for work, but the signature is HUGE and a ridiculous 600 kb:

If the forum rules are no longer having a profile with a total data load under 250 kb, can the rules be updated to reflect this?

I am also not sure what the policy is on what type of content is allowed on profiles, but recently there have been profiles using avatars /  signatures with content which frankly makes me uncomfortable (see above).

I fully understand the desire of people wanting to share cool stuff they like in their profiles, but I am afraid we are hitting a moment in time where rules have to be made clear in what is okay to put, and what isn't. It makes the forum unnecessarily heavy to load because of an animated GIF of anime.

Loading one page of Guild (with all of the signatures above) far exceeds the size of one well optimized MUGEN character.

I think the rules should just be updated to reflect larger data load but I also don't have a problem with some of those avatars/signatures being disallowed

We were just having a discussion about this the other day; I think it's far past time to allow a slightly bigger total profile size (maybe something around 500KB to 1MB?) Average speeds are much faster these days, so keeping it at 250KB just feels overly restrictive. But we also don't want to allow giant ass avatar/sig combinations that lag pages for anyone.

For the profiles in question (ignoring the size stuff for now), I'm not sure if they cross the line or not; no actual nudity, just... very poor taste for a profile, I'd say. Not quite sure whether they go far enough, what does everyone else think?

Skevy yes, but if they're otherwise allowed and have been that way for a while I personally don't see an issue. That said it's not my call, it's y'all's.

As long as there's no nudity or pantomiming of sexual acts or anything like that I don't really have a problem with it

You want your entire personality to be boiled down to "guy that likes feet" then that's your business
Too deep in yearning we need
something to hold, and something to keep
Innocent eyes could not realize
the meaning of "destiny"
But someday I promise that
you’ll start to notice what’s there on your shoulders someday -
Wings that are strong,
they will guide you along to the future that holds your fate!
Let me tell you a cruel angel’s thesis -
Flying high from the window, finding egress
There is something betraying all my memories,
burning pathos, emotion overwhelming!
