    Sexual Images/Content No Longer Allowed

    I made mention of this a few days ago when I had to close the Hot Chicks thread, but I don't think I was clear enough them as to what is actually changing here, so I'm posting a new thread with a clearer description so everyone has a better idea.

    Due to more stringent enforcement by Google on what is considered "family friendly", BlueshirtsBrotherhood Forums is no longer allowing overly sexual images, videos or content. While nudity and pornography have always been prohibited, we are now asking that all members refrain from posting, either in threads or signatures, images, videos or content which can be considered sexual in nature. This includes—and I quote from Google—"images or video content containing lewd or provocative poses, or close-ups of breasts, butts, or crotches." Source

    While enforcement on what is considered overly sexual is subjective to Staff discretion, just use common sense when posting images, videos or content that might be sexual moving forward, or if you aren't comfortable doing so (likely an indicator that what you are posting would violate this new policy), message a moderator or myself before hand and ask permission. This is not myself or any of my Staff pushing this adjustment, rather a necessary adjustment in order to adhere with Google's advertising policies, which keep this forum free of charge for all of you.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in this thread or contact me or any of the Staff personally. Please do not post graphics inquiring whether they are okay to post or not. Use the simple rule of "If you are not sure, don't use it". Thank you.

    Just bumping this again, but this is very important for everyone to remember all season long. Err on the side of caution. Always. If you are being overly descriptive of body parts, sexual organs, or sexually charged discussions, it's still a violation of the spirit of these rules. I realize it's vague, with "content which can be considered sexual in nature" not being all that descriptive or defined, but I have no say in exactly what Google does or does not consider a violation, which is why I'd rather be on the side of safety, always.

    Please be extremely mindful of not just what you write, but how you write it.

    Thank you,
    Phil
