Avatar images on PurplePort should be Suitable for Work

By Russ Freeman, written 1544012937.

When we started PurplePort we didn't mind what avatar image you chose as long as it was an image that was appropriate for your account (e.g. if a photographer then you must have taken/made it).

Eventually we decided that adult style images should not be used as avatars because often people would not enable the adult filter.

We have now decided that avatar images should only ever be suitable for work. This is simply so that when a visitor views PurplePort without toggling the filters they will see images instead of "image filter enabled" placeholder image. This is something our competitors already do so we are really just falling in line with them.

We send notifications about it and will fairly soon enforce the change so that you won't be able to set your avatar with a NSFW image in the same way we deal with adult avatar images.
