IMAGE POLICY

All images, signatures and avatars included, posted on the SFO Forums must abide by these rules.

1. No Pornography. Pornography is any image that contains non-artistic nudity or sexual acts.

2. Artistic, Tasteful, Nudity is allowed ONLY on the art boards (fanart and member works) so long as it follows these guidelines:

   

   A. All images that contain nudity must have a warning and may not be embedded in or attached    to your   post. You may only link to the image in such a manner that someone browsing the    boards will not accidentally see the image.

   B. The subject may not appear to be underage, even if the subject technically isn't.

   C. Female Nudity: The full breast may not be shown, the area of the nipple must be covered; the    crotch area must be covered, regardless if something can be seen or not.

   D. Male Nudity: The crotch must be covered, regardless of if something can be seen or not.

3. Clothing should not be too revealing. If a private area is obviously visible through clothing, then don't post it. With female subjects, it's fine to have a little bit of a lump where the nipple is, but it shouldn't be too obvious. Same goes with the male crotch, so long as the shape isn't obvious and it isn't too large. The staff will determine if an image shows too much.

4. Please do not post anything that suggests anything sexual or suggests the desire for a sex act.

5. Graphic depictions of death or serious bodily injury are prohibited. A small amount of blood is fine, but nothing extremely graphic.

6. Please post a warning if an image contains significant violence.

7. Do not post anything that promotes illegal activity, including substance abuse.

8.  Do not post any image that appears as if it would trigger seizure disorders. Seizures are serious medical emergencies, and are not funny. Intentionally posting such an image will be considered troll.

9. Please respect copyrights and ensure that you have permission to post the image on forums or the the post constitutes fair use.

10. If the staff deems any image to be inappropriate, it may be removed.

Rule change.

Mods, I have a little project for you. It isn't a huge priority, but I would like it to get done. I'll help too.

We need to go through this entire board and remove anything that violates these rules.

Pages five and six are good. Although, mariano's link to his kemono art page has some stuff on there that is less than appropriate for the site, but he warns people to just look at the comic he made, which is clean. I'm not sure if we need to touch on that issue or not.

We can't control other sites. Only get stuff that is a direct link to something.

Alright, everything is checked with the exception of the Mega Krystal Fan Art thread that requires much Mountain Dew and several days to tackle. There is one pic in Tailsrulz's thread that I question, but it seems to follow the rules of this forum, so I'm not going to bother with it.

I'd say, toss the whole thing, but I think we would have a mutiniy (most of the pics are fine, last that I checked, but who knows)

Poor Tails got way too much flak for that pic, which is decent, considering, and he warned the @#!$ outta all of us.....to bad he left cuz of that

Good luck with that ol' MKF topic, I should send you a pallet full of MD, You goanna NEED ALL OF IT :P:D :D :D :D :D :D

Why? What was in the picture?

I'm not sure I understand what you are asking.

Are you talking about shirt-less babies?

In that case I don't care, so long as it isn't sexual in nature. Note that I don't want to see full nudity either (at least a [clean] diaper, please).

I don't think I said I would add anything, only that I would allow it in that case.

Can I post links to adult-oriented art on deviantART or FurAffinity if it is flagged there in such a way that it requires a login?  (That is, no random people can stumble over it unless they're already registered at those places.)  I know of a lot of great Star Fox bara (gay muscle) art, though most of it is NSFW.

I'm mostly sure that's still not allowed, though, Mr Krystal will probably point this better than me. Most users here are still peeps and kiddos, and making an account on deviant and FA is easy so we are not taking that risk, sorry  :P

Pity.  Some of us haven't been kids for many, many years.  The first Star Fox game was 17 years ago. X3

Anyway, IIRC, FurAffinity has a built-in failsafe with registered accounts where mature art is deactivated by default, and the site won't let access mature art unless your age (according to the registered birthdate) is at least 18.  So even though children as young as 13 can register on FurAffinity, they can't access mature art until they're 18.

Though anyone can lie on a registration form to make the site think they're 18, that would not only show a consciousness of the implications of doing so, but it would also be online fraud - something a child's legal guardians (not the site) would be responsible for.

Yeah, but problem is, they can fake their age and say they are 18 , it happens everywhere (even here). I'm really with you on this, and I would love to bend the rules to accommodate a side of this forum for other needs  (as long as it's strictly artistic), but DZ and Mr Krystal don't really want to risk with this, and I'm the keeper of their rules, so, for now, we are limited on what we can do with semi-nude art.
