I can be behind this as long as the streamlined rules make sense and are consistent between the two.You very well could be correct, which is why I didn't say this was something that is planned. At current, the only plan is to streamline the rules so that they are simple and understandable across the board when looking at the site and the forums.
Which is also where you're going to run into problems as the forum and the main site seem to cater to two different age ranges in terms of content. This is where the inherent differences between the two communities kick in because the mainsite will want to talk about their sex while the forum community would like to keep the quality of discussion. And then drama because if you're going to have streamlined, consistent rules between the two, somebody is not going to be happy.
I don't envy you in this particular position.
