    While I don't have a problem with that, it just seems like it would be a large amount of work for the administration. Why would it be so much more important to check proper age here rather than the main site, or FA, or Youtube, or whatever other site that doesn't need to be mentioned here?

    Pretty much this.

    I've been on forums where they try and verify people's ages and such to allow NSFW content but in the end it seems like a huge hassle to do - for now it will stay as just linking to your mature/adult works on other sites (without using [img] tags of course). We want the forums to be PG-13 and hopefully once the Weasyl mainsite opens up it can be used to link to as an alternative than other hosting sites when posting those kinds of works here.

    Oh, true, true.

    Besides, after thinking about it more, encouraging adult stuff in even part of the forum will likely bring in quite a few members from a furry demographic that a lot of us would rather do without. As in, it could make it possible for the 18+ stuff to start leaking out into the wrong places.

    Little late to the party, but I wanted to pop in and ask about mature art on the mainsite. I'm an artist who really specifically works with mature artwork, but my work is very rarely furry. I've longed and longed for a community where mature art could be posted and shared like on FA without that unspoken 'furries only' exclusion or 'bois only'. Over the years, I've posted on chans, y-gallery, rule34, tumblr and FA. There just isn't a descent community for this stuff. Pixiv is closest to my imagination but non-english of course.

    So understanding that we can't post it here in the forums. That's all good. Will we be able to post 18+ material on the mainsite? Which would be blatant drawn pornography or heavier gore. (Obviously with filters of course)

    So excited btw! I know I'm going to love weasyl either way. I can not wait to delve into the mainsite.

    As long as the content fits within our Community Guidelines (which can be found here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16895537/Wea...Guidelines.pdf ) you are free to upload it to Weasyl as far as I know of. :3

    Omg thank you Taw. Somehow I did not find the dropbox! Clicking on the comm guidelines link on the front page just took me to a 'page not found'.

    Oh man now the wait is going to be even more difficult! Been wanting this so badd. *u*,

    I'm gonna bump this because I have a serious problem with one of the guidelines.

    ---
    2. Minors in Sexual Situations: Submissions and other uploaded
    content must not contain characters who are, or are depicted as being,
    under the age of eighteen and are engaged in sexual situations.
    Depicted as being under the age of eighteen can mean one of two
    things:
     The character is referred to or implied as being under 18, whether in a visual or written piece,
    or;
     The character in question has small child, or infant-like proportions.
    Furthermore, photographs must not contain any improperly clothed minors regardless of the situation
    depicted.
    ---

    The last sentence doesn't bother me but the rest of it does. I had a ton of friends who were banned from FA unfairly because they drew cub porn and I absolutely hate it when people put it on the same level as child rape or whatever. The main reason why I hate FA is because of that. I like that kind of thing, that's why I go to Inkbunny, and I want a damn good explanation for why this is even a rule. Is this gonna be more bullshit where people are going to get banned from a website for posting things that aren't even illegal just because some dipshit moralist has a problem?

    If I seem abrasive, I am. I'm sick of this bull with FA and I don't like people acting like them. I thought this site would be different from FA and more accepting.

    If you say "plz" because it's shorter than "please," I'll say "no" because it's shorter than "yes."

    Believe me, we don't think that drawn art is on the same lines as child porn or child rape. I hate it when it gets compared to that.

    We originally wanted to allow said content but there were a few things that we were really concerned about. Vague laws being a big one, we don't want to have our members get in trouble over vague laws. Another big concern being about merchant services and credit card vendors. We're already considered "high risk" and so far it seems that all of the vendors we've checked do not allow this sort of content. We want to be honest with our future merchant services about what kind of things will be hosted on the site.

    Another thing is that it came down to either accepting cub but disallowing shota/loli, or disallowing it all. We don't want to be restrictive on content but it doesn't seem like a fair, good policy to allow one thing but disallow the other, even though they are basically the same, content wise.

    Theres a few posts on the tumblr discussing this policy. One and Two.

    At the end of the day, this isn't about morals, it's about erring on the side of the law and trying to have fair policy.

    If your hearts weren't in that decision, then I'm sorry. That crap where FA basically banned a bunch of people, some of which were my friends, and excluded a certain group out of activities has really made me hate that site and that attitude. When I read that, I thought it was just gonna be another situation like that, but it doesn't sound like something that can be helped, and it does sound like the administration was considering fairness, and not exclusion, when they made that rule. I also forgot that, while that kind of porn is legal in the U.S., Canada and the UK have a lot of ridiculous restrictions on it that are completely and utterly biased and pointless.

    So TL;DR fuck the police, I guess.
    If you say "plz" because it's shorter than "please," I'll say "no" because it's shorter than "yes."

    I'm not into pedo porn, but I do have a question.

    I have a habit of getting into dark topics at times, and they tend to run along adult/mature themes, but they are by no means pornography. The core of it is usually hinted at, implied, or otherwise shown in the context or shown in a way that isn't explicit visually. This can be anything from violence to sex.

    I have not done so yet, but what if I put a minor in one of those? The theme can put a minor into a mature/adult situation, such as violence, abuse, or something perverse, and with the way I work, it's often merely implied, shown in the context, or not explicit visually. It can be ranging from tame to absolutely disgusting, but there is little to no imagery present that someone can fap to.

    Basically, a situation not suitable for children, featuring children, yet by no means pornographic.

    Is this against Weasyl's rules?
