Can a mod explain why my pictures where deleted while these are allowed?

I posted several pictures the other night of Innes Sainz in the random picture thread that were deleted by X as being too risque according to him. I was also told by PM posting "babe" pictures were not allowed in the other forum.

However other babe photos were posted in the thread, and they still remain there even though I reported them to the mods last night. It appears to me there is a double standard and hypocrisy enforcing these rules on the forum. I'm willing to live by the rules even though I don't agree with them, but it should apply equally to everyone else on the forum.

Personally I see nothing wrong with posting babe photos as long as they are not nudes, or hardcore pornography, which none of my photos were. Can someone explain why my photos were a violation of forum rules why these others are not?

Here are some babe photos that are currently being allowed in the random picture thread.

Re: Can a mod explain why my pictures where deleted while these are allowed?

I hear ya, LM!

I received a PM from him also. In a nutshell he said, 'NO BABE PICS', even though mine weren't as bad as some, it still encourages the posting of more babe pics by more members and that has (in the past) led to more and more risque pics (with less and less clothing) which I can fully understand. By 'nipping it in the bud', it will help to eliminate this problem in the future. However, from your personal experience & example (and it's a good one), your babe pics are plain wrap compaired to the ones Giant and Infidel posted, and it appears the scales are simply unbalanced.

(Maybe it's because they're premium members and we're not? )

Hopefully with the creation of this thread, we'll get to the 'bottom' of it once and for all!

If it is a premium thing shouldn't they post them in their own forum where they can only see them? I have nothing against the pictures or people posting them. It's obviously a mod problem and how the rules are enforced on this forum.

I guess you don't realize that mods have lives, they work and sleep, and don't always read every thread and sometimes take a while to get to reports.

Now that you have brought this to our attention the pictures in the current thread that you complained about have been removed.

That's what I like to know myself. I have no idea what is right or wrong. I plan on not posting any pictures that have women because I don't want to risk getting a suspension or ban from the mods because I broke a rule one too many times.

I don't wanna get into trouble either.

I guess the gay members can't post pics of attractive, handsome, hunk-bound, STRAPPING, SEXY, CROTCH SQUEEZY, DELICIOUS LOOKING men either?

( I'm not gay, REALLY! )

That's probably the best course of action for you to take then if you can't make that determination.

The criteria for a picture that isn't appropriate for Other is the same as what would get threads moved to the Adult Forum, when we had it. Ones that primarily focus on women's chests and butts, or where they are scantily clad. Pictures that would appear in FHM or Maxim for example.

As much as The Edit King is saying he needs clarification, it does appear he has figured this out as he hasn't posting any more of the types of pictures that weren't appropriate for our forum.

Why can it not be explained then? I got into a discussion with you the other night about another picture that was not deleted. Initially you gave me a vague explanation that didn't make any sense why it was allowed. However I noticed the next day it was also deleted.

Re: Can a mod explain why my pictures where deleted while these are allowed?

OH hey, sorry X. I know no one will believe me but being a huge fan of Thora Birch I posted that particular pic of her for more than her milky white breasts.

Bottom line I'll refrain from posting LASERMOVIES-ish pin up stuff.

I wish you could post your picture for any reason if it were up to me. I didn't make unexplainable rules. I see nothing wrong with random female pictures in the thread.

I figured if it offended you enough for you to make an issue of it, it should be deleted. And removing it would help you to not receive a mixed message so that you would better understand the limits of what can be posted.

I think the best rule for you to follow is if you're going to complain about the picture in your current mindset, don't post the picture.

Re: Can a mod explain why my pictures where deleted while these are allowed?

I still find it funny that gifs showing people killing themselves and others are okay, but those (and the stills in this thread) showing attractive women are not. Things have really gone downhill since the acquisition.

Are we only allowed to post pictures of unattractive women?

Would this pic be allowed, yet the one above of the woman in the yellow top/white pants is not?

It appears you are beating around the bush of what is and is not acceptable. I was not offended by any of the pictures I used for examples. It appears you were offended by mine, and only deleted the others to appease my complaints on the matter. I don't believe any forum members seem to have a clear knowledge either of the rules. That's my beef with this whole situation.

Look at it this way:

If it can give you a boner, DON'T POST IT!

All I can say is every other person who has been warned about posting inappropriate pictures has done an admirable job of understanding the limits and complying. Perhaps you're just better off not posting pictures if you have trouble with this.

What are these limits? Explain please since you're avoiding that question time and time again. It appears there is a sliding scale with no set rules. I've seen other forum members mention the lack of understanding these limits in other posts, so I'm not the only one.

You even said a few posts earlier you removed a picture because I complained about it. If there was nothing wrong with it why did you even remove it? How is that sending a message of what cannot be posted if you thought it was acceptable? To me that would indicate there was a problem then, and you are throwing it back at me to save face. (The deleted picture in question was a woman wearing a low cut top with half her boobs exposed blowing up a phallic shaped ballon)

It's clear there are no definable rules to follow, and that is what makes all this so silly. I've been on this forum for almost 10 years and never received a mod warning for anything. I'm probably going to refrain from posting any further in the random picture thread since this matter has taken all the fun and enjoyment out if it.
