What about the Profile Pictures of banned users?

Postby DerEric » Sun Apr 05, 2020 5:51 pm

This is something I always found strange, so I decided to ask.
Why are there some banned users, like Eri7, who still have their profile pictures while other ones, like Raster, only show the "dead Mario" graphic?
Just wait and see.

To be totally honest with you, I think it's a bug... I don't know

When a user gets permanently banned, they normally have their profile pic changed. This is something manually done by admins.

I suppose that's why Eri7 kept his. He has been unbanned as of recently.

I think the profile pic is a game over mario right?

I mean I think it makes sense. No reason to have a profile pic if ur banned lol

EDIT: Woah, speaking of profile pics, what the heck happened to mine....

The maximum dimensions were decreased while you were off the site, that's most likely why

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

I'm now curious, because there are many members who have gotten banned (some who started threads still popular in the Sandbox) who have the dying Mario, despite appearing to have contributed reasonably well. However, there are accounts unlikely to be unbanned who retain their profile pictures, including a Redigit imposter from 2 years ago.

I'd say it's a pretty random thing as to who actually keeps their avatar and who doesn't.

Is there any reason as to why the avatars are getting changed as opposed to, say, the rank?
Now taking graphics requests:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1urWpFq ... #responses

My graphics pack:
http://www.supermariobrosx.org/forums/v ... t=1960/url

Really tempted to just make a general graphics thread for all of my graphics instead of just making individual threads for each of them.

A group can have a set avatar and rank. The Banned Users group has the Mario avatar and the "Banned" rank.

Going into a related topic here, but what if a normal user wanted to use the SMB3 Gameover sprite for their profile picture? Would they not be allowed or will they be able to have that, even though it could cause confusion as to whether the person is banned or not?

Regular members can't tint their username brown.
Ideas are useless if you can't make them real.

Or get the "Banned" rank as opposed to some enemy or character or something.

Why isn't it done like this:

where the Banned rank has the dead Mario where the normal rank image usually is, as opposed to replacing the avatar?
