Last week I wrote about the Elad N avatar controversy and how that got Namepros in a tizzy for over a week.
Namepros has now updated their terms and Elad told me on Twitter he is not returning to Namepros.
As promised, the procedures and guidelines were updated.
Here are the updated guidelines:
The guidelines also include some professional new avatars that anyone can use on NamePros. There are plans to add more avatars in the future, including some with different personalities.
Here’s what to expect with the upgraded guidelines:
- New registrations will continue to be required to adhere to the full guidelines.
- Existing members will continue to be required to adhere to the most important aspects of the guidelines, such as when avatars are very unprofessional or problematic (incite hate, racism, violence, etc.)
- In the future, there will be an announcement about stricter enforcement of the avatar requirements for existing members. At that time, we will politely ask members to update their avatar if they believe that it doesn’t fully meet the requirements. Some time later, we will post a reminder that the deadline is approaching. Once the deadline passes, we will enforce the full requirements whenever it comes to our attention that an avatar is not compliant.
We believe that this is a fair way to apply the changes and give the community some time to adjust.
If you have any questions, please contact support.
Thank you for all your valued feedback.
Yea, I’m out of there. I hope they will change for their sake.
