ACCEPTABLE UPLOAD POLICY (AUP)
Revised: Jan 19, 2009
Fur Affinity allows Users to post photography provided the following criteria are met:
- Prohibited - Photographs containing exposed human genitalia, breasts or buttocks are not permitted. This includes, but not limited to; images depicting explicit and/or implicit sexual acts, images focusing on the genitals of animals or images containing items of sexual nature (adult toys, sexually modified fursuits/plush animals, etc.)....
I would appreciate :iconDragoneer:'s comments on whether I understand the above section the way that he intends it to be understood:
1. Exposed human genitalia, exposed pubic hair, exposed human buttocks, and exposed female human breasts (but not male breasts) are prohibited. Right?
2. Painted genitalia, painted pubic hair, and and painted female nipples are allowed. Right?
3. I understand that I may have to submit the aforementioned painted Photoshop layers to an FA admin on demand and have no problem with doing so provided that the request is made before the irreversible deletion of all the Viewers' Comments below the image in question. If the FA admin deletes the submission image ONLY
before checking, that isn't a problem because it can be replaced by the artist when the image is proven AUP compliant. Deleted Viewer's Comments can NOT
be replaced after the body parts in question are proven painted rather than being a photograph. OK? Do you consider this to be a reasonable restriction on admin deletions to prevent the irreversible deletion of Viewer's Comments below an image that is subsequently proven not violate the AUP?
4. Is completely covering human buttocks and female breasts with Photoshop created fur considered not "exposed"? Even 1" long photomorphed fur conceals far more than than than AUP compliant 1/8" thick T-shirts and 1/32" tights, and my fur is always at least 1" long.
A good leader accepts the moral responsibility of making his rules unambiguous to both his subordinates (his FA admins), and to those who are subject to his rules (all FA members). Please accept the responsibility of being a good leader and do the FA photomorph community the courtesy of answering these simple but vital questions. You are the owner and you make the rules.
What we emphatically do not want is the arbitrary and capricious interpretation of your rules by certain of FA's admins, nor do we want these certain FA admins to be able to refuse to look at artist submitted evidence of compliance.
Thank you very much!
