    So if I post a picture of a fully dressed person (someone not showing genitalia) I get spanked on the wrist with a wet bus ticket?

    Very confusing. The england needs work.

    do actually miss the old days when no one gave a crap, and we all had fun.
    who's complained so much, that all this enforcing has come in?

    You're right, it's not like the old days. There's only 2 posts wah'ing on about censorship/PC/etc.

    Problem is that in the old days the site had a membership of 2,000. At the moment it's growing at 2,000 in less than 6 months.

    Btw, fixed the ambiguous wording. Thanks for pointing it out guys.

    It's a question of balancing up the needs of people who get offended while not wanting to be deleting stuff, moving stuff to PD, and generally speaking being an arsehole and/or censoring things. I've not seen anyone object to marking images as NSFW - this just extends the concept to an entire forum.

    View it as PC if you want, but really it's a green light, innit?

    Ever tried to figure out how to run things smoothly for over 10,000 people?? I'm guessing the answer to that is no.

    This is just a minor change in forum structure and categorisation. There's nothing to stop you from posting and viewing NWS stuff, this change just puts it all in one place.

    There was also a new Bucket Racing forum set up today.

    Minor changes - get over it.

    but we're all here for the same thing, aren't we? so why would it matter if it were 50 or 100,000? just the same people..
    and if they don't like it, harden up, or they know where the door is!

    i just think it's a shame to be carving up something that was so orsum back in the day, and it has to crumble and bow to PC nerds (not the computer ones) like everything else in this god-damn world so all the fun gets spoiled. Next thing we know, it'll go commercial like a few other sites I've seen crumble, and things just really become generic. Then KB is really lost to the world

    and minor changes, fine. I can live with it. But 'minor 'improvements'' where things are becoming more and more separated and 'PC-fied' is just almost....
    i'm not saying it
    what was wrong with it all in one forum?

    The old KB flickered and died a while ago. The New KB is resolutely PC.

    " For now I see the true old times are dead,
    When every morning brought a noble post,
    And every chance brought out a merry jest.
    Such times have been not since the light that led
    The holy Elders with the gift of myrrh.
    But now the old Kiwibiker is dissolved
    Which was an image of the mighty world;
    And we,who remember, go forth companionless,
    And the days darken round me, and the years,
    Among new men, strange faces, other minds."

    The Heaven Born do not approve of Naughty Pictures. The first step to eliminating the objectionable is have it collected and concentrated in one place. Much easier to delete or remove access from a single forum than to have to trawl through many scattered posts.

    Back in the day having the occasional message with a dodgy title and an R rated picture in it wasn't a problem. But now there's far, far more than the occasional one and it's putting people at work at risk. It's not uncommon for someones boss to see NWS and pussy on the screen and instantly think that person is surfing porn.

    As I said in the 1st post it's simply the sheer quantity that's the problem. The site rules regarding NWS stuff have actually eased up since the early days. But again, it's the quantity.

    Whose thread is T & A then? Sometimes your comments are quite profound and other times they appear like an ill thought out attempt at trolling... Will the real Ixion please stand up..

    I still don't see a point.
    If this was to keep kids from seeing the stuff then you've only made it easier for them.

    IF it was so that people checking the site at work wouldn't set off bells and whistles tech admin, maybe they shouldn't be checking the site from work in the first place. Or keep it as simple as it was and just have people put NWS in the thread topic if they are going to post something such and the tick box that were already in place.

    A lot of people have problems doing something as simple as that
