Hi all,

Just here to apologise for my previous avatar that may have caused offence by depicting both the Imperial Japanese flag and the NSDAP flag.

This unbeknown to me was a breach of this forums rules to which I should have reviewed better. I have photo shopped the original period artwork 

the best I could to better comply with these "rules".

I trust the censored version (below) will  comply with this requirement. I am sure you will appreciate why I selected this as my avatar.

 

Lest we forget.

No offence was ever taken, this is a game about naval technologies and warfare. I think every reasonable person on the forum acknowledges that there were events in history, the good the bad and the atrocious. But we understand that the world has moved on since and we should not make a big issue out of a historically accurate flag that is highly unlikely to represent your personal political beliefs, nor for the purpose of promoting such political beliefs.

I used to have an Avatar which I designed myself, which had "Scelus Sceleris" on an Eagle. It was a common latin phrase in Roman Empire. (Eagle is Roman Empires symbol).

 

It means "crime, sin, evil deed, wickedness" and is the clan art for another game that allows pirates and the like.

 

It got removed, despite having nothing to do with WW2, so yeah it isn't just the flags - there are many things that can be offensive.
