    Hi everyone,

    I've noticed an increasing amount of people using suggestive/adult images in their forum signatures, this is against the rules and anyone who violates this rule will have their signature removed. Repeat offenders may have their signature privileges removed entirely/potentially be warned.

    Thanks for understanding.

    This is certainly a red flag for a certain somebody.

    Keep it clean.

    We live in a diverse world, I find it rather shocking that people cannot respect other people's beliefs.

    If people are going to ask for homosexual suggestive content to be removed, then I'm going to have to say that no adult/suggestive content is allowed either. Can't tolerate one side and not the other, it just isn't right.

    I'm tolerable myself here too.:rofl: I actually find it funny that some people cannot respect other people's beliefs. Sometimes their reasoning for such is hilarious imo!:rofl:
    Just wanted to mention that it was definitely one of the more out of place signatures here by far. It is true that adult homosexuality is a topic some support and some do not, so if we got people here from both sides, it would have surely stirred up trouble.

    If anyone here would complain about my signature here too, if they got for example a trauma of octopuses, I'd be willing to remove it. I'm a tolerable person and do not wanna discomfort people here.... much...kinda...octopuses are awesome, OK?!

    It just that he was the only person I noticed to have an adult/suggestive signature here atm (tho I only lurk in general discussion, dunno what happens anywhere else). So this whole topic about a sudden increase in such came off as weird to me.:confused:

    Glad to hear that you're open minded. (y) Your signature always makes me crack a smile.

    Quite a few people have had ecchi (sp?) signatures, signatures with suggestive images of Korean models etc... There's more than you think.

    I never really cared about peoples beliefs. I will, however respect them. However, in some situations as @Beyond Z said not everyone said will not be tolerable to it. And that's just life unfortunately.

    Actually, and I listed this to Josh as well,
    • There were ass shots of Asian models
    • Signatures about watching and featuring images from adult content
    • Profile picture from adult content
    • Countless amounts of fan art featuring the sexualization and objectification of female units from brave frontier (there even was a topic that rated female BF units by the size of their secondary sexual characteristics the other day)
    There was a high amount of gender bias in the decision, but from the start, I recognized that there might be and posted in moderator chat before posting up my signature and received okays from fellow staff.
    The forums complained, Josh notified me and it was changed.
    Needless to say, I will attempt to be better about notifying and enforcing these sorts of issues in the future personally (applying to both myself and others)

    What are we considering sexual/adult sig at this point. If Korean singers and models are being taken down animated characters making out is fine though? I'm a bit confused on where the line is being drawn between okay and not okay right now.

    Here is the definition of Porn by the supreme court : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_know_it_when_I_see_it

    This is why such subject matter will always be vague.

    Let me rephrase what is the rule applying to this forum, being considered as suggestive and/or adult content.

    My point was that if the Supreme court can't figure it out, how can we? It will have to be judged on a case by case basis, I'm assuming, and if it's clear someone is trying to push the line, they won't be happy.
