    Funny how defensive Admin gets when users just state that they are disappointed with the major change made.
    No ya can't please everyone, but I do trier of "Leaders" bowing ta a few squeaky PC prudish voices.
    As for those "Snapped" viewing "porn" at work, they made their choice when they ticked:
    Image censoring
    Do you wish to censor avatars & attachment thumbnails containing nudity?
    When members upload avatars & images, they are asked to specify if it contains nudity. These avatars are not displayed with this option turned on.
    in:
    Thread Display Options of Edit Options in their User Control Panel.

    Simply put, if ya going ta complain about nudity, then tick yes in the Image Censoring panel and don't look at it. If ya have ticked not ta censor then ya have made ya choice, deal with.

    That's a moot point if the uploader doesn't check the box though.

    The changes don't bother me, I like having everything organised into one place.

    Then what has really change there? The Mod would have ended-up spanking the "perp's" fingers for not ticking:

    Attach FilesValid file extensions: doc gif jpg kmz pdf pps psd swf torrent xls
    Check the box next to any images that contain nudity.

    EDIT I had a good fiddle around and the only way to issue an infraction to me or Spank is to get messy with SQL and I can't be bothered.

    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.
    The point is that the thread title doesn't show up in the New Posts etc and the "R Rated" pic won't be showing up on screen at an unfortunate time - unless you want them to. Most people viewing kb from work do so during their breaks, something that is fine with the companies they work for. What isn't fine is having a pic that says "R Rated" etc on the screen.

    How was that on subject?? The site rules still apply, pointless crap belongs in the pointless crap section, that hasn't changed.

    The growth rate has been steadily increasing for over a year. Doesn't seem to be linked to anything like school holidays etc.

    The poster of "questionable" or "objectionable" material is the person on whom responsibility for posting should fall and to whom consequences should be attributable, not the person reading those posts.

    Posters are generally lazy folk, and quick to post their latest item of purilently salacious ooze, often without attaching any form of NWS warning or ticking the nudity box. Indeed some are so rapturous to post pulsating pulchritude that they actually embed the image, and in so doing bypassing the censorship measures this site employs.

    More devout bikers should not have to avert their eyes when inadvertently stumbling across surprising sexual sewerage. Nor should they have to explain to their partners, children or employers the reasons for such lascivious lewdness leering from their monitors, when they were not intentionally seeking it.

    The LOA facility is not "censorship" as some allege. It is merely a quarantine facility to accommodate the needs of those who expect titillation to be available on every site they visit. A place for everything, and everything in its place. Enjoy.

    MT.... you will soon learn you are damned if you do, and damned if you dont!

    There will always be the arsehole who objects.... I suggest do it Spankme style... tell people how it is, and stop justifying yourself... you know that this is a good solution based on what has been discussed..... if 0.005% dont see that.... pffft!

    It's alright, I don't mind banging heads. It's fun

    There's always people who will object. I thought there'd be more though.

    So it is just a variation of PD. And posts will not show with the New Posts utility, which will be a great nuisance. Since, to achieve the stated aim , any thread at all containing a post that the devout might object to must go in this new PD forum. So, if someone puts up a thead about the new Poopmocycle, with a motorcycle show picture of said new bike, adorned as always with the inevitable bikini clad hotty totty, it must go into the new forum. And those who use the New Posts feature will be unaware of its existence. And what happens if someone makes a post, objectionable to the devout, in a thread hitherto of unimpeachable moral probity . Presumably the thread must then be removed in toto to purgatory.

    If we are to censor all that is objectionable to the devout, there will be little left. And which devout? Does only Christian devotion count? Or, should we accomodate the requirements of Sharia' law also? Will the female form only be permissable if burkha clad ?

    And what of other spiritual derelictions objectionable to the devout (there are lots and lots of those - the devout object to a great deal) ? May we also look forward to similar censorship of posts which take the Lord's name in vain?

    I can see the reasoning but I access all new posts through 'New Posts' so I'll still have to wade through the same shit.

    In the Good Old Days(TM) much of the OT/R&R stuff was interesting and amusing and worth reading but it seems to me that now there is a lot of crap posted between people that would be better sent by txt, e-mail or just picking up the bloody phone.
    At the very least PMs could be used more.

    As much as I feel uncomfortable about censorship/PC/Big Brother/whatever you like, some regulation is required wherever there is a disparate group of people interacting.
    Think meeting rules, traffic regulations, accepted social norms.




    Hmmm...I feel a bit better.
