On Friday, March 18th, a user sent us a PM, expressing their discomfort over the promotional banners being designed and used for the community. They correctly pointed out that not only were those images explicit (and therefore triggering and disturbing) but that they came across as disaster porn.

We, the mods at [community profile] help_japan, apologize for our inconsideration. In our haste to open the community, we took the banners from our LiveJournal counterpart and did not check the images as thoroughly as we should have. We’ve taken down the aforementioned banners immediately and will be putting up new ones soon. The purpose of this fandom auction is to help Japan, and, by our thoughtlessness, we have hurt the very people we were trying to help. We screwed up and we’re deeply sorry about it. We hope that an apology in some small way, helps make amends.
