Mature Content In Galleries Allowed If Marked Properly
« on: August 26, 2017, 12:06:09 AM »
And let's not forget the new feature in The Gallery!

During 2 out of 3 of our last contests we had people blend fractals with Art featuring minor nudity.  None of the staff felt it rose to the level of Adults Only, X-Rated, material - but it was still enough to offend some members and we did get complaints.

The decision to let those entries remain was controversial, but it was unanimous among the staff that it was not enough to warrant removal.

Well, we don't have to worry about that sort of complaint anymore!

There is now an option to mark images or videos as having Mature Content  :devil:

The images will not be visible to any user until they click a button agreeing that they are willing and of legal age in their country to view Mature Content.

Please be aware that we will not allow material that the staff decides does rise to the level of Adults Only, X-Rated, material!  Also be aware that any rejected material will be acted upon by the entire staff and the decision will be final.

At the moment we can't control the automatically created threads in the forum to show the warning, so items marked as having Mature Content will not have threads generated in the forum and will have to be viewed in the Gallery itself.

This may be considered controversial by some, but as an Art Site, some of the Human Form is bound to creep in and it is best to be prepared and avoid the complaints we got when such material was presented with no way to filter it out.

Please note that any images containing Mature Content submitted without being tagged as Mature Content will be removed and the member informed that they must mark such images as Mature.  Repeat violators will face consequences up to and including restricted permissions and even temporary bans.

We hope this will please both the members offended by such material, and those of us who create or enjoy such material!

Go have a look and see how it works  :peace:

Tried the link, even after I was properly registered on this new site, and was confronted by only this:

"Are you trying to look at the pictures of this forum???"

Since I couldn't find the Yes button I had to turn around and leave.

Oops.

Thanks for pointing that out!

We originally had all Mature Content in 1 Category since it was believed to be the only way to prevent threads from being made in the forum displaying the content which should be filtered.

The makers of the gallery gave us a fix so now any content tagged as Mature will not get a thread made at all, so we removed the category and now such content can be placed in whatever category works best for the Fractal part of it!

I updated the link to point to an example directly instead of the catgeory that no longer exists!

Here's the new link again : https://fractalforums.org/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=2

And as far as I know, our only other Mature Image : https://fractalforums.org/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=14

Still not sure which one of those I like better  :devil:

And Welcome to The New Forums!
