All forum members - Overly sexual images no longer allowed
 
Due to more stringent enforcement recently by Google in what is considered family friendly, the WrestleZone Forums is no longer allowing obviously sexual images and videos. While nudity and pornography have always been prohibited, we are now asking all members refrain from posting, either in threads or in signature banners, images which can be considered sexual in nature. This includes, and I quote from Google, "images or video content containing lewd or provocative poses, or close-ups of breasts, butts, or crotches." Source

While enforcement on what is considered overly sexual must be subjective to Staff discretion, we are not, at this time, intending to Warn or Infract for inappropriate content. However, if we feel over time our members are not adhering to our guideline regarding inappropriate material, we may re-visit the idea of Discipline. Please do everyone a favor and react maturely to this notice. This is not the brainchild of KB or myself, but rather a necessary adjustment our higher-ups have insisted upon in order to adhere with Google's advertising policies.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask in this thread. However, please do not post graphics inquiring whether they are okay or not. Use the simple rule of "If you are not sure, don't use it". Thank you.

It's because of the Adsense stuff. They supply the ads that bring in revenue to the forums.

Apparently pretending to be a chick on a wrestling forum also does nothing for your brain cells, because its oversized again!


So adsense is 'asking' the sites to be more family friendly. Internet's going PG.
Great! More 'OMG Attitude Era Rulez' threads will spawn.

This is bullshit. Pretty soon we won't be allowed to scratch ourselves without going to prison.

The world has become too sensitive, its embarrassing.

Genuine question.

In the essence that they pay content providers to run advertising, pretty much. When you're the guy who hands out paychecks, you get a lot of stroke. Google hands out a lot of paychecks.
