Even if it's not intended to be a threat, the fact remains that implementing such a section in any way, shape or form associated with IDW means that you leave. So...yeah.

I'm actually kinda surprised. I mean, Eronight's been a thing for like...how long?

*aherm* ...sorry

What about inputting a Konami code or clicking on that little Pi character at the bottom right of the screen to gain access to the super secret information about members... like IP addresses, credit card numbers, and rule 55 pics! awesome.gif

My thought would be to implement it as an opt-in system only. Basically throw a check box or y/n radio buttons on the MCP. Basically gives full control to the admin/mod team. Obviously since we can't verify ages of users, an age gate would still need to be used beyond that, but that would keep the subforum literally undetectable to any bots, searches, nosy bosses, etc.

Outside of making the announcement in the news section, there would be no other way for anyone other than opting members to know it exists.

Didn't need to use the first part then if you're leaving. laugh2.gif

Not starting anything, but you haven't been on as much, if at all, but we do understand your opinion.

Knowing her occupation, I can sort of understand why she needs or wants to leave or dissociate.

That being said, in terms of background, people do discern a difference between you being the admin of a site that actively hosts a NSFW board vs you being the admin of a site that happens to have NSFW content (ie, trap threads, loli threads, eronight).

One suggests an active approval, while the other suggests a range of things from irresponsibility, non-caring, or approval.


EDIT:

I'll put in another 2 cents in guys after thinking about it.
Honestly, a good general rule of life, law, and design;

"If you have to hide it, you probably shouldn't have it in the first place"

Now, to ship back my crate of illegal immigrants from China, I'm just not about that life anymore.

Agreed there, which was my earlier point. The problem with implementing a NSFW section is defining the limit of such a section. It's simple to define and enforce limits for SFW, but once you open the floodgates... where do you draw the line?

I think the vocal minority (or..majority? I'm not counting) have spoken here in protest.

If this was to bring life and activity back to the forum, there's other ways to do it.
Anything but this guys.

Again, that is why this thread was made. Staff is floating ideas around and you are responding in turn. Right now it looks like there are too many queries as to why this is necessary, which I fully understand. It's not a method of boosting site activity, either, just something new.

That said, your wishes matter most.

Eronight is a radio show that happens to have NSFW things on it, I see it as a chance for the community to get together and laugh at a crazy weird fetish that N1 found this month. Whenever you would post screen caps of it, they would be artfully censored. Bottom line I'm ok with that since it doesn't happen often. Maybe it's a double standard, but the fact of the matter is--and Sensation! hit the nail on the head with it--that with my job as it is (which is teaching btw if anyone doesn't know by now) I can't be associated with NSFW material. Especially loli things because of the implications that it holds in terms of being child pornography or something like that. Does it sound stupid? Yes. But I didn't make up the rules.

I really like where I am right now in terms of pay, career choice, housing, car, etc etc. I'm not willing to change any of those tangible things if a NSFW section on the forums that I browse opens up. If the general membership and stuff decides that talking about NSFW things is kosher and should be a integral part of the forum. Then so be it. I've made a lot of sacrifices to get to where I am today and I'm willing to make more if it comes to it.

I suppose that's that, then.

My balls are already on the internet if you know where to look, so I'm not too torn up over an inability to post them here.

Perry's original intent was lost in translation. It wasn't sexual. However, that's not worth fussing over as a fight is the last thing we need on IDW.

On the subject at hand: You guys overwhelmingly stated that this is not the direction you want the forum to go in, even tangentially in closed space. Consider it no longer in development.

There are more developments on the horizon that will be fielded to the membership for feedback. Nothing as racy as a NSFW section that only the staff can use now. wink2.gif

Here is the section as it is now. It's in Off-Topic, but flagged as a staff section. It's a matter of flipping a switch, or specifically allowing individual member access, if it's ever decided that it would be okay to have on the site. Until then, it's still in existence and being used for cool shit and information that you literally cannot find anywhere else on IDW.

What's inside these nuggets? Streaming site membership shares? Bitcoins? Doujins? Links to hidden albums?
