Guidelines for pornographic pictures

I recently uploaded some humerous pictures in the "Rare and hard to find pictures of Rek1" thread. One of them was a little spinning penis GIF, nothing pornographic at all. It was under 50x50 pixels. The second one was an animated picture of a Peanut Butter and Jelly banana dancing on a poorly shopped penis with fake blood (The blood was added in the computer, it was not real). If the mods want, I can upload these again so you all what I am talking about.

I think the current standard for "Pornographic Pictures" in the WTF rules is a little vague. I feel that it should be limited only to full frontal nudity pics, hardcore sex, etc. For example, a comical photoshopped GIF of two women dancing with added in cartoony penises should not be considered porn (It's more along the lines of humorous to some people). At the same time, a GIF of hermaphrodites who are actually having a "gun battle" should be deleted, and should also be considered a possible bannable offense.

Is anyone with me here? What one person finds to be porn, another does not, and I feel we need to set guidelines so that all mods viewpoints can be equal.

The guidelines set forth by wtf.com may mirror those of the internet web host which hosts this site. They are likely bound by a service agreement which prohibits such material. Unless they have their own server then rawk on.

Hmmm...I never thought of that. We should ask Jason about his web hosting, that would really demystify things.

If you think that by any means it could be porn, then it's porn.

It's pretty fuckin simple.

Agreed. it either is or it isnt. But i think that some peoples views can be a little off from others. But still this is the internet if you want the porn go find it dont bring it here.

The guideline is set to protect everyone involved. If you wouldn't show it to your 13 year old sister/brother, it's gone. If you wouldn't show it to your parents, it's gone. We have always acted towards this. It's pretty plain and clear. What's left for you to do is to stop posting up the same material you know isn't allowed.

This is the case due to COPA regulations. The only way around this is to make the site Adult only [age 18+]. We do not want to do that.

I think your parents would call it porn.. or inappropriate at the very least... and even if yours approve... there are younger members on here.. that don't wanna scroll down a page and have bloody penises appear when their parents could be over their shoulder... remember others...
I'd laugh if your parents turned on some parental controls on your computer.... I don't think they want to pay a bill (cable, dsl, phone) for you to entertain yourself, and/or other chat forum geeks with porn..

I may be a little more verbose with the guideline description in the future, but it's probably not necessary... If it's a cartoon penis pic, or a cartoon vagina pic it's still going to end up being removed heh.

Though I must admit, that dancing banana one sounds intriguing.. ;)

On the subject of servers.. We own our own server, and are not tied to any host adult/porn policies just for the record. ;)

Thanks, guys.

But that COPA stuff is fascist. I think it's time we kicked those Repub. senators out of office ;).
