Recently the girlmom policy of tickers has come into question.

At girlmom we don't allow tickers.

One of the big reasons is that it slows down the download time for the mamas who use dial-up. Sure they are cute, but some of them can also be offensive to mamas who have had abortions. So save the tickers for your myspace or livejournal.

If you add one you will be asked to remove it. If not removed within two days one of the mods will remove it for you.

Thanks for understanding.

This also goes for things like pictures, blinkies, glitter graphics and the like. Just keep it to words, please!

Its one of those things you can get that usually says either how far along in your pregnancy you are or how old your kids are. I think they have them at lilypie.com.

Also, we generally ask married/partnered girlmoms to not put their marriage/partnership in their sig.

yeah...i mean not to sound mean or anything, but i saw someone with that in their siggy...and it made me sorta sad, not for them of course...but for myself. is there anywhere on the site where the siggy guidelines are posted? not just for tickers, but for other stuff too...

That ties into the whole flaunting priviledge thing..
I'll check around and see if the guidelines are posted and if not I'll post some.
