NSFW Section

I think it would be a good idea to keep threads like "cut or uncut?" and "What is your main fetish?" Out of general and community discussion and instead make and put them into a section exclusively for NSFW discussion.

Uh. I find it a terrible idea.

This is a PG-13 forum and threads like that shouldn't be on the forum. Period.

Want to talk about that shit? Do it in PM's or elsewhere, please.

We don't want to scare away any underage people who just want to come here and have a good time. I admit we all get carried away and forget that what we post might not be suitable for everyone. Thanks for the reminder Zhalo.

There's no place for something like that here

I'm more or less going with the flow. If they won't moderate the site there essentially isn't any point to having rules in the first place.

I won't go out of my way to discuss something of the sort around minors as even I have a sense of moral responsibility, but I'm equally not going to go out of my way to avoid a discussion I'm interested in.

And the current threads going on are not accomplishing that?

Isn’t there a way to lock out minors for a thread though? I was on another forum that was clean, but had a section for 21+ year olds and you had to ask and confirm your age to the mods in order to get access to it.
This is what I was thinking of, a restricted 18+ section

Moderation is the problem. I have no problem with mature discussion being shut down immediately. The fact everyone can simply just get away with it with impunity takes away any incentive to restrain themselves.

The existing rules say;
"Prohibited content includes erotic role-play, but excludes discussion of adult themes, provided they aren't explicit. "

While there may be some subjectivity in judging this, I feel the bulk of the posts in the fetish thread could be considered non-explicit discussion of adult themes, while the cut/uncut thread is probably getting towards too explicit, being directly about genitalia.
Could a section for adult themes within those parameters be useful? Perhaps, but I can imagine it would be a chore to moderate.

I was specifically referring to the 18+ part, but your right. There are plenty of other things doing that.

How are we to make it possible to make a NSFW section? And access to it? Poke a mod for access?

Yeah, this would probably be for the best to do. It'd also give a home for artists doing nsfw commissions, trades, and requests.

As a counterpoint, it's entirely possible to make a section of the forum only viewable to people that are confirmed to not be minors. All that would take is some effort on moderations part.
Plus yeah, this forum requires you to enter your dob when you make an account already

All three of us are on a certain other forum where the above has been implemented.
But there's still ways of the place becoming complete cancer which I'm certain this forum would do within hours.

You set your date of birth when you made your account.
That IMO is WAY too easy to exploit.

Better to not have and not deal with potential crap, than have it and potentially deal with minors having NSFW access.

Want NSFW? Go onto Discord or other sites.

Which is kinda easy to exploit. You just have to act as if you are 18+.

An NSFW section sounds like a good idea to me.

I imagine that a few people could fake their age to get through, but even so, it doesn't have to be perfect. If kids really want to see some inappropriate discussions or content, there are many much more accessible outlets for that all over the internet, so it's not enabling them any more than they've already been enabled.

In my mind, an NSFW section should just be some kind of barrier to keep it out of the immediate sight from those who might unintentionally stumble onto that content and find it uncomfortable (kids mainly, but also some adults).

As is, NSFW discussions seem to be treated as grey area by this forum community; the threads aren't locked and people contribute, but there's always some level of backlash by a few users. I think an NSFW section would work as an effective outlet for people who are interested in those discussions, but don't wish to inconvenience the people who don't feel comfortable seeing that kind of stuff.

Well it's easy to exploit on FA too. Or any porn site for that matter.
It's easy to exploit everywhere.

This forum isn't innately meant for NSFW anyway.

If a NSFW area IS to be put in place, at the very least have the option of not seeing it.

That's any website with such content though. You just assume people are what they say they are unless there's evidence otherwise, at which point you ban them from said content. If the content is hidden unless you have an account and are 18+, then no one making an account would know that they have reason to lie, thus helping avoid would be liars.

I don’t think this is feasible at this point in time. While in theory, it’s a good idea, I doubt it would be good in practice.

Adding features to forums isn’t as easy as pressing a button. That, compounded with the fact that we already lack moderators, is just a recipe for disaster. If you really feel so inclined to discuss NSFW- you have discord, telegram, FA, f-list, e621, phoenixed, and a multitude of other platforms. FAF just isn’t for NSFW, and even if it was, it simply would be too difficult to put in place
