One of the original reasons, from the stickys I've read, was for a place that members could get together out of the public eye, where people could "loosen up" a bit.  For the people under 18, if they are willing to click on a topic that explicitly states "18 and over only" or some other disclaimer, then most likely those individuals have already been to other sites with much more explicit content than seen in here.

I feel that limiting the group because of the possibility of some dishonest individual viewing threads they shouldn't just seems wrong to me.  I do not care whether nudity is allowed or not. The larger question for me is where it will go from here.  What might be next:  Violent content, explicit language, references to smoking, drinking, etc., etc.....?

Good Point.

Look (or don't look) you woosees

~ you still have time to change your vote!

I agree with Stank_Ho; 

"I think it should be kept open , but limited to T&A only. No private parts."

Remember; we do have some (decent) mods that can easily edit material that might over step any common sense bounds.

. . .besides, CA3LE said it's OK!!  dumbsh!ts

~ you don't want to piss off the boss, do you!! ~ lol

I somewhat agree with amc11890 for his reasons.

How about a big XX where the younger folks might not belong.

Yeah, a little freedom is Great. But at the same time, I would ban my own daughters from seeing the T & A & P's in the other posts. Just being a normal father.

But I being over 18 (maybe just a little) enjoy the fun myself.

and ca3le started this poll and asked the question...so why would he get pissed...he asked for answers and that's what he's getting... :D

I voted no as well. I agree with some of the others about the younger members viewing explicit material. It would be a turn off for some women as well.

nah...no turn off...we have stuff we can post  ;)  :shock: ...so no...if there's T&A then there'll be P's and B's and C's and F's...fair is fair :haha: or i'll sue  :evil6:

But I being over 18 (maybe just a little) enjoy the fun myself.

hypocrit... :haha: j/k ...me too

I will admit, I have enjoyed the adult topics that have been participated in here, because they have been presented in a tasteful manner.

But in defense of this site, I will vote no on this poll.  The biggest and best attraction to this site is its forum, without discrimination towards age, sex, religion, nationality...whatever.  I think that having an "Adults Only" section is a means of discrimination towards our youth members (a notable chunk of the population).  It isn't fair; you wouldn't make a "White, Christian, Heterosexual, 23-Year-Old Male" section, nor one that pertains directly to single--or more correctly one that eliminates all other--groups of people.  I think that we might find that it will become a deterrent, and go exactly against the code of this forum.

I do like the idea of the Members Only Lounge, not just as a means of enticing guests to join the forum, but as a means to unwind away from the public (ie. Google-able) eye.  I think that is a great idea!  But we will have to test and prune out certain content as we go.  That will be half the fun, but ground rules will be the key to keeping it alive, cleanish, and thus successful.

fantastic points fallowearth...

and everyone needs to remember to post in the main forum to support the site...because nothing in here can be seen outta here...

so posts that belong in the public eye should still be posted out there for everyone to see...or in both if u like...

i'm tired...does that make any sense...?? *yawn*

tdawnaz ~ if I'm not mistakin' ~ you were the first to post 'private parts' with your 'Dragon' thingy pic (that I warned against, I must add) ~ and I'm sure that's when everyone went "Oh NO!" and freaked out!! (at least I did (again!) . . .thus probably, causing this need for a 'vote' process to transipulate. ~ lol  j/k

. . .not really ~ lol

Don't get me wrong ~ "I Love TMN" and wouldn't want to jeopardize that relationship in any way, nor the site. Sometimes there are things even CA3LE has said and done that have completely surprised and freak me out. . . so I guess this may be just one more of those ~ that 'we all' need to deal with (and agree with).

What I'm saying is;

~  this has become such a yes and no question (for some, including me)

~  I think what we 'really' need to do now ~ is define some agreed upon 'boundaries' (wsuggestions)

~  for the "Members Only Lounge" only.

What I would like to propose (for the "Members Only Lounge" only) is; if you 'feel the need' to post a T & A pic, do so by providing a hyper-link with a warning in red, like [WARNING: ADULT CONTENT andor  NUDITY]

Then the person (the "more seasoned" member) has a 'choice' ~ to click that 'link' or not. . .this seems fair to me, as long as it's only here in the 'Members Only' section.

Also, I think this section should be opened up to members only after 100 post or more, ~ to me ~ that would be more of a 'seasoned' member ~ meaning, a more informal trust has already been developed ~ beyond the "Help" and "Check this out" 'newbie' postings we all started with ~  when we first found this site.

[i know, this might be completly un-doable, now, so it's just a thought, maybe]

Also, I think the "Members Only Lounge" should be seen by all members, including the general public (Guests), on the Main Forum ~ Board names list!!  ~ but not accessable (meaning still restricted) 'till that member (or Guest has become a member) and after the 'seasoned' requirement has been achieved.  Meaning ~ The WHOLE POINT of why I thought a 'Members Only Lounge' would be a neat idea ~ was to entice our 'Guests' into becoming members!!  ~ Marketing 101.

. . . as we can see ~ it looks as though the "Moral Majority" is gonna win this 'vote' !

~ soooo, can we talk more on what I've just proposed andor YOUR ideasuggestions

. . . and see if we can come to any common consensus, (maybe?)

As always ~ YOUR idea's and thoughts are most welcomed and encouraged!!

~ Remember; This is YOUR lounge

~  what 'boundaries' would YOU like to see in place

~  to assure a fair and equal place for ALL to relax and have fun

out of the spot light! ~ lol

~ your friend and mine  ~  B.O.B. DOS

What about if a parent knows their children can get on the site, and are underaged they could request... no nevermind, that would mean you would need proof and you can't necessarily get it... besides, I guess Aggr3 could just beat their asses *JOKING*

OK, boundaries:

1. Let's say no nudity. I maean lets face it, you can find it anywhere, so you don't need it here, rght?

2. As to the text stuff, I can't imagine a lot of "kids" are going to be interested in reading a 25 page long thread, most won't even click it when it runs on that long, so given the human teen condition, I think that's ok... (imnsho)

D. I'm not adverse to porn, it doesn't bother me, but it does bother me to have kids exposed, I think we burden them with enough choices, that they don't need to have those as well.

49. You guys all have to admit that you would love to see me and tdawnaz ;)

:lol:

  :haha:

:shock:

:-P

ROM-DOS...aren't u getting a bit ahead of urself there...ca3le put up this poll to get the opinions of all that would vote...and said after may 31st the poll would be locked and it will be up to him to set the boundries (if any)...which there may not be...he has posted a very explicit warning at the beginning of the board itself...that is area is for those over 18 and that there may be some offensive things in here...fair warning...

so let's not get ahead of ourselves here...no ruling has been made...and i don't make the rules...and i try not to break them...but i am the naughty mod sometimes...so i'll wait for ca3le's ruling...

as for my posting i only intended to leave it up a short time cuz of the title of the thread...and there have been far more disgusting things posted...and no i'm not talking about the other tatoo/piercing pics...all of those including mine were so covered that u could hardly make heads or tails of it...definate pun intended...and i should have known that looking at a penis would upset some that had never seen one before...especially one that was altered...and who removed it??? ME...and who was actually "doctoring" the "iddy biddy piddy" thread before she even knew there WAS an issue going on??? ME....and i sincerely apologized for the post after i knew it offened some...so shake that finger elsewhere...boogerhead... :P

so i say everyone calm down or i'll be forced to post those pics of myself in that wet t-shirt contest i was in a couple of weeks ago...don't push me...and i'm sure water has plenty of recent stuff she'll donate to "the cause" also :D
