Strange New Trend in Emblems?

Has anyone else beside me noticed the strange new trend going around where some players actually make the youtube logo and then add their youtube account under it? Since they are not allowed to advertise it here on the forums they are using the emblem creator to do it for them in game. I can say it is rather creative to do so. But I wonder if it is or should be against the rules? Since in a way it is still adverstisment.

I think the emblems are fine.....but in the end its up to xbl and Activision to determine whether it is a violation of the rules we all play under. If it s so be it, move on, if its not happy days go for broke.

Activision partnered with Youtube. Blops 2 allows you to link your youtube account in game or via elite. Why in the world would it be "Against the rules"?

Why lock and delete....I find it interesting. No harm in discussing interesting things.

Just because they have a deal with youtube does not mean it is ok to advertise on the emblem. As you well know it is against the forums rules to try and do it here. And will get your post removed by the mods. So it could be against the rules in the game as well. And that is what I was asking about. Not really if is should be; but if it is and should be reported.

I report any emblem that I find offensive; be it porn related or just hate or racist releated. I find it fun to watch the threads of people that come here and cry about their emblem creator rights being lost and then they admit to having something that was against the rules yet still think it should have been ok.

Yes, indeed. There is only one way that number grows.  I say leave the micromanagement to the people who actually manage the game and away from the fans. But we are all entitled to an opinion.

Wow, how dare you mention someone's post count, very bad form.

At least that's what I was told on another thread.  By a moderator.  About someone who admitted he doesn't even own this game.  And said he doesn't play it.  But still posts endlessly.  On second thought...nevermind.  Nice to see I'm not the only one who notices the creatures under the bridges.
