An image and a link to an image ain't that much different, is it? If you think you're going to be repremanded about something, why post it at all?

That's true, but I guess with a link you can give a better warning about what the image will contain... In the end though it is kinda inadvisable to post anything at all questionable, whatever form it takes... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-3.gif

I don't have anything more to say. Those images are disgusting and especially for the kids that browse the forum. Even if there is a warning about this image, the content remains the same. We have kept a high level for our forum and that's why we have old AND young members, making this forum the best. Although I mailed you Lady the other time, it's obvious you ignored me. So, I leave it in your judgement. Thanks.

Elen

Most kids would see a lot worse than this on the evening news. At school in history and archaeology these are visions that would be in any text book. We all play Tomb Raider, if you are that squeamish how can you play a game that gets you to destroy monkeys, endangered tigers, dogs and people, wether they are good or evil. You can't keep kids wrapped in cotton wool. Its a nasty evil world out there and by keeping these things hidden and taboo usually only makes kids want to know more. Prohibiting something has never worked thats why we have illegal drug problems and young girls getting pregnant. (Not saying drugs are OK they are disgusting) My point is that by not teaching kids about things with their inquisitive minds they will try to find out on their own and will not necessarily get the informed answers that people with more experience can give them. I grew up in an era when sex education was non existent and so many of my peers got into trouble. We need to teach kids what is real and what is imaginary. Tomb Raider is imaginary and I know I am not killing cute monkeys or magnificent Tigers or badly trained dogs. What is so bad about seeing a skeleton kids are taken to museums on school excursions to see skeletons, its part of their studies. Whether its fake or not I think its an extremely interesting photo, maybe Jack and the Beanstalk was not a fairy tale at all.

I dont see a problem in this pic, I saw a lot worse in musems when i was in year 4...
Its only a skeleton, we see them on TV, Dogs eat bones, even the youngest of kids know about skeletons and have seen a lot worse just looking in a butchers window

Elen has every right to tell you that she doesn't approve of you posting that pic. Lady, I cannot believe the disrespect you show towards her.Elen is our administrator, and she is doing the best she can to be the best she can be. ( And I think she is doing a mighty fine job.) I also think that pic isn't appropriate for younger members, if I'd have seen that when I was a kid I'd have probably been freaked out about it and had nightmaires from it. Elen knows what she is talking about, so you need to resept that and stop being so rude to her and everyone else on the forums for that matter.

on the tomb raider games it says u have to be 15 or over to play them, and i started playing them much younger than this and they disturbed me a bit so i stopped and then started playing them at an older age and im fine with them now, this might not be the case with everyone but i understand y there are age limits on things.
and if Elen thinks that the picture isnt suitable for younger members of the forum then she is right because people react in different ways to different things.

I DIDN'T SHOW any damn disrespect,CHILL out for God's sake,u mad person http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/silent.gif ,like mentioned it's a FRIENDLY SUGGESTION and I was just wondering and asked her that.What ta Hell is wrong with this people novadays.U write something FRINDLY,they read it like an insult!! Damn. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-3.gif

NO COMMENT TO your other ideas. Read the TramP's post,and others that support the everyday image thing,and think about it.JUST IGNORE IT IF IT DISTURBES U , it's easy as that. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif :rolleyes:

Mel

Nobody is saying that Elen has no right to express her opinion and as bubbleblaster quite rightly says Tomb Raider is for 15yrs plus. So if a 15 year old cannot handle an image of a skeleton this is a pretty sorry world. Do you give your dog bones or is he a vegetarian. In Australia at 15 you can legally leave home so long as you can prove you are not in moral danger. This is not a childrens forum, and someone under the age of 15 should not be playing this game or visiting this forum. There are a lot worse games out there that under 15 year olds can play. I think a lot of people on this forum should gain a little more maturity before they start throwing accusations around.
Enough said I get a bit upset with narrow mindedness. It should not occur on a forum which has such a large range of races and religions.

I don't believe a couple of pictures showing spiders and a giant fake skeleton are going to emotionally scar anyone. It's not like the spiders were chowing down on a person and it's not like the skeleton still had all its' juicy parts. I think they're funny, especially since the photos have been so obviously doctored.

Ok, I didn't mean anything from what you said. My point was NOT whatever you all said. I never comment a member publicly on the forum, I prefer to mail him\ her. This is what I did with Lady, but she ignored me.

To conclude and make the story shorter, my point was not for that poor skeleton, and you all know what I mean. Playing TR (that may be violent) is our choice, like posting on this message board - it's our choice as well, meaning that we must all follow the written or unwritten rules. I have never challenged a fight, so peace http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I was not commenting on the image itself, merely stating that if you are unsure whether it is suitable or not maybe it would be for the best to avoid it all together. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Lady, I have never seen anyone display such disrespect to our beloved ELEN. She is trying to keep this forum a nice place. Just think, if she allowed any type of images on this forum and didn't police it the way she and others do, it would turn out to be one of the forums we hear about on here that allow cursing and personal attacks. So please try to make her job easier. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

don't take me wrong, but since tombraider players are able to handle the gore in the game, then prb only tr players would come to a tr forum, thus meaning all members should be able to handle the gore since they all are tr players in a forum...wouldn't that be ok? (hope i didn't confuse anyone)

Cool, like the pic.
I personally wouldn't have hesitated to post a picture like that on here either Elen. I didn't know the image posting rules were quite that restricted. Maybe its adviseable that you request permission before posting next time Lady.

If I posted a dinosaur skeleton that's just been discovered on a dig site would I get a warning for that?
hmmm,,, anyhow, I'm stayin outta unnecessary forum wars, I got wallpapers and gfx to make http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-3.gif ;)

ok lady, you claim to not have shown disrespect? Well, an image is AN IMAGE,and the link is something that U CLICK AT YOUR OWN RISK.And it said that it wasn't for EVERYBODY , sO ExCuSE mE !!! That sounds like disrespect to me. If you haven't noticed, when you caps lock things it's the same as yelling. I tell you a simple thing, and that was to stop being disrespectful to Elen and you go nuts. Don't make me sound like a villain,Mel,for something you missaderstood!!

I DIDN'T SHOW any damn disrespect,CHILL out for God's sake,u mad person ,like mentioned it's a FRIENDLY SUGGESTION and I was just wondering and asked her that.What ta Hell is wrong with this people novadays.U write something FRINDLY,they read it like an insult!! Damn.You need to take a chill pill and learn some self control, geez. :rolleyes:
