I got a cam with my copy of Your in the movies and i thought it would be a good joke to take a pic of my PS3 and set it up as my gamer picture, but i've heard of some people getting banned for similar things such as having "Mozilla Firefox" in their bio.

You aren't gonna get banned for that, Only your friends will be able to see it anyway.

As for people getting banned for having Mozilla Firefox in their bio? that seems a bit much

It wouldn't surprise me. I was banned once, for having "strawberry milkshake" in my bio, as I was apparently promoting the beverage.

Then, just the other day, I was killed while walking to work for kicking a stone, as it was considered a violent, hate-filled act. Terrorism, they called it. I was killed, coincidentally, by stones. So they did to me, what I did to their people.

So I'm going to say that yes, you will be banned for having Playstation 3 in your bio, and be careful, you too may be killed like me.

And I can believe the Firefox thing. Only the most violent, sadistic of people use a browser that portrays a helpless animal on fire.

I am going to say yes, not for the fact it is the PS3 but for the fact your are breaching the rules of the gamer picture. With cam pics you are only allowed a picture of yourself, no copyrighted material allowed. So this leads me to believe that they will ban you.

Oh and callum, shut up :P.

Stufin, you go away for God knows how long, without saying good bye to me, and then return to tell me to shut up? You've changed Stufin, you've changed and I don't like it. :(

Oh no wait, you used to do this all the time... Hey Stufin!! :D

Damn straight I tell ya to shut up :p.

But I haven't gone anywhere, I check this place every day and said thanks for the bday message :p. I just don't usually leave the GH/RB section and that has been so dead recently :p, so I ventured out into the wilderness of the x360a community :D. Also I have been over at another site more recently lol.

But anyway, HI! Let's be off topic :D.

I thought camera pictures were only seen by your friends so i'm going to say no you won't be banned. of course you could always have dick friends and they'd report you.

Damn. I currently have my personal pic set as a Guy Fawkes mask. Should have read the T&C's more closely. Although, who is to say that that is not a picture of myself? I could totally look like that. lol. Doubt my friends will report me, so I'll leave it be for now.

Last time I checked, owning a PS3 isnt illegal nor is talking about them. So you're fine to have a PS3 in your avatar should you so wish. If you have any doubts on what you can/cannot put in your av or sig, you can always read The Rules (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=180508).

Most likely a friend of mine got banned for taking a picture of his Halo helmet that came with the game and using that.

Well, seeing as I got temp-banned for having 'Nintendo' in my motto, I wouldn't say it wouldn't happen. :p

But seriously, I doubt you'll get banned for having a PS3 as your pic. Unless it's something graphic and/or disturbing, you wont get into trouble.


And no, I didn't get banned for 'Nintendo' in my bio. It was because my motto read: "Nintendos B4 Ho's".. Though it is still questionable :p haha

Well kind of, I don't mean so much yourself. But you are not allowed copyrighted material as you do not own the rights to it.

Well your not selling anything. Or using it to promote anything.

According to that statement though i'm not allowed to take a picture of an Xbox 360 icon because I do not own the rights to the symbol. That doesn't make any sense.

Bottom line OP, you won't get banned for putting a PS3 as your picture.

Its because that is such a ridiculous statement that no one in their right mind would believe that you are saying such with any conviction. Or they just felt sorry for you for your misguided belief, and they give you a pass.

So I should probably change my gamerpicture from Deadpool to some other pic and my bro's account from a SMB3 symbol to something else.

i don't see any reason they would ban you... they aren't losing profit and you aren't gaining any from there work so na i doubt it...

I've had a picture of Mario from the SMB3 cartridge as my gamer picture ever since I got a camera 2-3 years ago, never had any problems with it since... maybe it's because everyone loves Mario?

I did a week of gamerpic porn where I would take snapshots of various well known porn sites, a new one each day. I got suspended for having my gamertag in my bio but nothing for gamerpics.

A gamerpic taken with the cam can only be seen by your friends.

I lol'd, then I questioned your motives. And then I quit caring. :p

OP, if they banned you for that, then I'd have to say someone's just a disgruntled employee at MS.

Impossible to get banned for it. Only reason you'd get banned for your gamerpic was if it was of something offensive or obscene. simple :)

I've never actually heard of one LEGITIMATE claim of unfair banning, every time the person has obviously had something against ToC in their profile but then tried to spin it as if he/she didn't. The rules really are quite clear, and the security team quite thorough, they don't just hand out bans depending on their mood

The PS3 is a good console and so is the 360 and Wii but i don't wont to start a debate on which console is better. After reading about it only being viewable to friends i don't think i will.

P.S The cake is a lie!

I got suspended from live for have in this in my motto, G0D is an A$$H0LE. It was complete bullshit, naw I'm kidding. I totally deserved it, it was worth it. Had that in my profile for a year before they caught it.
