A warning of adult content should be sufficient in this forum! We all like to see how we are progressing. Sometimes, nudity happens to be part of the art! After all, if someone really has the urge to express their basic urges, there is always 'Rotica. That's an,... Nevermind!

Hmm, well after careful analysis of the enourmous response to the poll... I don't think anyone is that bothered what it is.  :o

So if you didn't vote then don't blame us  ::)

Hehe, yeah it kinda died a death didnt it, must be all those lurkers again hehe.

The way I see it is as thus, images can can have a home pretty much net wide, either hosted by self or specialised sites (poser etc).

General topics should not be a problem anyway, and as for conversations, that has had an adults only warning since inception, think we can pretty much have anything in there depends on the bot and the users in question, but having adult material in that section has never been a problem. Anything else I'd be inclined to keep it away, as a place for AI, Robotics etc isnt really what you would class as having adult content, though at times, even in our little world, it does and will have its place also...

Not being a prude but IMHO there are a few things to keep in mind:

This forum is primarily about AI and it's trappings.

The site is not restrictive and as such should be considered a Family Friendly place.

Flaming another person should not be allowed nor tolerated.

Posting ANY adult oriented content that a child might "stumble across" should not be allowed.

If one wishes to dabble, play, create, post images of humans engaged in "adult" acts, nudity,
erotic behaviour, there are tons of sites on the net that permit such images.

www.renderosity.com, www.3dcommune.com and many others are great sites for more
adult postings.

Keep it clean, friendly and fun and we'll keep this site for a long time.

Seems I'm coming in late to this poll but since it is open, I've voted and will follow that with a comment for what it's worth.

For myself, I do artwork from time to time. Art has it's own rules as to what is or is not acceptable. In that, the nude is not forbidden but rather how it is used is the determining factor.

I do not believe that the totally nude form is of itself as sexy as a partially clothed one that suggests more than it reveals.

This does not address the forum's needs.

The rules of a forum are made up:
  • by whom is the target audience
  • who may or may not be exposed to such images
  • the members of the forum in what they view as socially acceptable
  • the atmosphere that the staff wishes to project to the membership of the site


As example, what would be perfectly acceptable to say a porn site would not be acceptable to a family site. They are pretty much in direct conflict with each other. Likewise if you have underage viewers as part of the membership then totally nude will not be acceptable unless in a walled fence...such as a restricted area designated for that purpose but out of site of those not to be exposed.  This puts the onus on the forum to determine whom may or may not qualify for admission.

There is an old saying on the net about  No one knows you're a dog on the internet
To all intents and purposes it means you are who you represent yourself to be as long as you don't give it away. There is no absolute identifier that guarantees proper id to judge by. Most sites use a credit card in the belief that if you are under age you can't obtain one. That's neither fool proof nor positive in it's purpose to ID.

...and that folks is my 2¢ as an old timer around the net.

Most people here now seem to keep to clothed and respectable.  But as you can see from the few results, the more active users don't really mind.  We would draw the line at pornographic images as we do want to be family friendly for the most part.  People know where to go to get full frontals...erm that means not here  ;)

Thanks for you points - well put and interesting to read.

NOTE:  8pla.net is a different user than the member above using the same avatar image.  Time to update to a unique avatar image. 

Just making the point that 3D animation rendering time is greatly reduced by rendering just nude models.   

Adding realistic clothes, hair styles, and other props, adds 3D models to the scene, which requires more processing power and greatly increases rendering time.
