    Hello everyone. After a respectful disagreement with a moderator regarding content that broke the site rules, I have an idea. Would it be possible to designate certain threads as mature? Or NSFW as the modern nomenclature would have it. I think that's an idea everyone could get behind.

    The thread is open for further suggestions.

    And what would then be permissable in these threads?

    That's up to the moderators' discretion. Surely there's a common sense approach to this? Not asking for people to be allowed to post drug use, death, porn or discrimination. I think acts posed in the guise of art should be allowed though, with warning.

    A few pratical matters come into play with questions like this :

    • We have no mechanism for policing or validating the ages of those with access to such content
    • By allowing it, this site would be flagged as containing 'mature' content and thus become restricted content for the young where parents have content restriction running - we effectively lose our next generation of users because we are blocked
    • We would still have to moderate it in some manner, and I can't do that in my lunch hour at work on my work machine and network :eeek

    How would you stop kids accessing the threads in question ?

    Is the site being labelled mature that big a deal? Serious question.

    Make it like Fllod This where certain threads can only be viewed by members that have been here and posted a set timeframe and number.

    Good point, I have a 'Virgin Child Safety Block' in operation that will block anything related to porn etc and I could not be arsed to log onto my Virgin Account and look up the restriction page, unblock it, look at what was posted then put the block back on and then continue on back in here or whatever, I have the Child Safety Block ON because I have 3 young grandchildren and other young family members.

    I think we should giveaway a Nintendo Switch. Some other forum did it a couple of years ago and it worked brilliantly

    Serious question: Why do we need this at a football board?
    As if the internet hasn't enough "NSFW" sites. Only a click away, Flip. Go there!

    btw: I appreciate your thoughts about to "help the site" though, Flip. But not with "mature content". ;)

    Because there's a community here. Go elsewhere isn't exactly productive, is it?

    Was only a tip, Flip. To ease the "urgent needs" if they occur to you ;). Wasn't meant to be productive. Just wanted to show my "NO" for "mature content" here.

    There's no urgent need for anything, just a suggestion.

    The suggestion is really as inappropriate as one for a specialist 'hairdressers discussion area' section of the site.

    Maybe I'm not explaining this well. I'm asking for certain threads to be allowed more mature content. By that I'm referring to videos that might have swearing in them, as was the issue that caused me to make this thread.

    I think this is topic has run its course now and I will use the Simon Cowell phrase from the X-Factor "And a big NO from me", I prefer the banter in here the way it is and I am happy with this (below) if one of my grandson's or other younger members of the family accidentally go into Google and press the wrong tab, only I can unblock it with a password in my Virgin Account 'Safe settings'... :D

    The moron above posted a video of a man being strangled and abused in the very thread I'm asking for leniency.

    Like Brexit this thread. Just old people having to have their words heard, even though it's a crap deal for everyone.

    Err, What's that mean, me? I don't think so.
