Default Home page picture

Not sure if any of you saw the picture that was up earlier this morning.

I did and so did my 6 year old daughter---------absolutely bs if you ask me. I didn't think this was a xxx gay porn site, thats about the best i could describe the picture that was up this morning. I sure didn't appreciate that on the home page.


If you saw it you would know what I'm talking about.

This was due to the Home Page pic being hotlinked from a members photobucket or similar account.

that user decided to change the Picture in VERY POOR Taste.


i personally almost threw up when I saw that also

Yep, a particular user decided to change the photo of the day to something very not nice.

The user is now gone.

I have linked to numerous peoples photos for the home page pic, but I guess XJmichigan couldn't handle it like a normal person.

And if you want, you can email him at:

I know Alan, and this is soooo not like him, I am really curious to why he would do that with such a nasty pic. Guess I'll have to give him a chat and see.

Ah, so you can be an asshole, have a large percentage of the site hate you (and voice that fact), and be allowed to stick around...



...but if you post an asshole, you're banned immediately? Got it.

Yah that happened to me when I was crusing the old site with my daughter on my lap. Completely harmless thread name had a huge pic of a naked native with his horse, both with raging boners. (remember that Deke?)

I warned the user...(didnt ban him, mind you) and I ended up being the bad guy, because I was reading the forum with a child present and shouldn't have been doing so....what was I thinking?

I was ridiculed for years after that one.

If you are referring to the Mr. Hands video, then you are comparing apples to oranges. The homepage pic was forced upon everyone comming to the site. the mr hands video had a link and said NSFW.

That means if you're sitting there with your daughter, you shouldn't click the NSFW link. But if you are sitting with your daughter and you go to gl4x4.com you shouldn't be forced to see anything you wouldn't want them to see.

But like CC said what Alan did is worse becuase it wasn't a link you had the choice to click on...just there for everyone to see. I"m glad I missed the pic tho'.

Very true. For what it is worth, I think that the site admin handled the situation the best they could, and we know that it was in no way, shape, or form intentional. Kudos to them for that.

Yes, good point.

The front page pic was "hacked" and a picture was posted that was unnoticed for about 5 minutes.

As soon as the admin found this out, the picture was changed to something more appropriate:


and the site owner APOLOGIZED and offered an explanation HERE.

What really surprising is the few people that insist on continually bringing it up. A mistake was made, it was corrected and apologized for.

GTF over it.

You obvioulsy have no idea what the hell I am talking about. My comment was directed to certain people who have been a part of other discussions and decisions related to managing this site.
