Recently I received a warning from ProBoards that adult content is not allowed on their service. The funny thing is Zetaboards also had similar requirements but we never got a warning on such content so I assume Zetaboards is pretty lazy on that while these guys are active in checking content.
As such I have to remove/edit all explicit images and videos from the site, it's unfortunate because adult modding is part of our community but there is no other way, all free forum services earn on advertisements and as such they have similar requirements to stay safe for audience, you never know who is going to warn you or not and we are not in position to buy our own domain, hosting etc to run the show.
The only way that I think will be good enough is that all modders who are interested in adult modding make a NSFW/Adult Content section on their DeviantArt and put their adult content there, interested members will have to check their DeviantArt for such content and updates, you can provide a link of your DeviantArt in the signature for better exposure.
Sorry guys I tried my best to find a better way but they are strict on this.
BrutalAce So this is only limited to images and videos right? Are we still allowed to post direct links and/or redirect to another site containing the adult-content? I also want to be clear on what is considered Adult Content coz "our girls" are sexy. Are skimpy mods exempted as long as they dont show the private parts? Does that mean that only Nudes and outright NSFW are not allowed?
Well they didn't warned me on any of the download links, they only picked 4 threads that had nude images and a video. They also didn't said anything on rest of DOA content which leads me to believe that only images and videos are the issue. One of their support admin also said PG-13 so that's that. For the time being I just removed direct nudity images and videos but if they end up giving another warning then we'll have to think about something. You can check staff discussion to see a test solution I was working on, basically no free place is going to have total freedom, I don't know how Zeta was quiet on this thing despite having same rules.
