    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.

    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.

    It's still too big.

    So probably a dumb question, but does this affect the bar room?

    Does it pertain to the content of links posted?

    And what about videos? Is a Diva's match too sexual?

    A cursory search would indicate that the ass/leg appreciation thread has already been nuked.

    You're putting an overly sexual image in my head that would get us both banned baby. Btw, do you like fondue?

    For all intents and purposes, yeah. Not a good thing, not a bad thing, it's just reality.

    Besides, what the hell does a chick in lingerie have to do with wrestling and why do people feel the need to post it in their sigs?

    It doesn't affect me either. I rarely post pics and the ones I do post are usually in service of a bad joke or pop culture reference. However, it's a "freedom" thing in the minds of some. Their freedom to post images that are provocative is being infringed upon. Unfortunately for that mindset, this isn't a democracy.

    Why not ban videos and images of wrestlers in trunks? I'm surely not the only one checking out Ziggler's ass during his entrance.

    Eye candy.

    With the exception of NorCal's question, which has been answered satisfactorily a couple of times now, all of the other questions in this thread can be answered by my first post.

    Yerr!

    Pervs. Loads of places on the internet where you can find shapely, naked women and if you look hard enough you might find some in real life.

    It affects me, I was going to post a thread in tribute to male crotch bulges.

    Tought luck, buddy. That reminds me-- everyone should be careful about which Big E Langston pictures/videos they post. He could end up costing the site a lot of money.

    Or Big E vids.


    That man spews some disturbing verbalization for his love of special sausage.

    So I guess directly posting women's matches is mostly not okay, since they sometimes "contain lewd or provocative poses" and very often "close-ups of breasts, butts, or crotches".

    Links are okay, I guess, because the rules talk about photos or videos posted and I assume it means directly.
