Reminder: "NSFW" content is NOT appropriate for NikeTalk.  

post #1 of 115
Thread Starter 

Lately, we've been having some problems with users attempting to submit inappropriate avatars, pictures, and posts to our forums, to the point where it's clear that many of you need a refresher course on NikeTalk's policies. 

 

 

From our rules page:  

 

Quote:
3. Images, including those used for personal icons, must be appropriate for all ages. Images that show illegal drug use, graphic depictions of violence or are sexually provocative are not acceptable. These include "booty" pictures, illegal drug images, and anything containing graphic" violence. These restrictions apply to videos and links to outside sites as well.  Do not link to ANY video or site containing slurs, profanity, or other inappropriate content. 

 

The use of graphic sexual language is also prohibited.  

 

This has been our policy since we opened our doors thirteen years ago. 

 

Basically, if it's not safe for work, it's not safe for NikeTalk.  Our forums are intended for a wide audience.  

 

 

If you violate these rules, not only will you be held accountable but, for better or worse, our entire community is held accountable as well.

 

We currently rely on Google AdSense to help us cover the costs of hosting and maintaining this website.  

 

They have a similar policy to ours and, when users are following the rules, there should be no conflict. 

 

There have been so many violations of late, however, that AdSense units have been pulled from the General forum.  You'll notice that, at the moment, there are no ads on the General forum page at all.  As the General forum is currently our most popular forum, this is a significant problem. 

 

 

These are the rules that users are breaking on our site that also carry consequences for our website as a whole:  

 

Quote:
ADULT/SEXUALLY GRATIFYING: As stated in our program policies, AdSense publishers are not permitted to place Google ads on pages with adult or mature content. This includes images or video content containing lewd or provocative poses, or close-ups of breasts, butts, or crotches. More information about this policy can be found in our help center ( https://www.google.com/adsense/support/as/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=105957 ).
 
 
ADULT/SHEER SEE THROUGH: As stated in our program policies, AdSense publishers are not permitted to place Google ads on pages with adult or mature content. This includes images or video content containing strategically covered nudity, as well as sheer or see-through clothing. More information about this policy can be found in our help center ( https://www.google.com/adsense/support/as/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=105957 )
 
Violations can also be text only - which we have had recently as well:
 
ADULT/EXPLICIT TEXT: As stated in our program policies, AdSense publishers are not permitted to place Google ads on pages with adult or mature content, including sexually explicit text. More information about this policy can be found in our help center ( https://www.google.com/adsense/support/as/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=105957 ).

 

It's not JUST about violating some arbitrary policy or about basic consideration for other users who may be browsing in public places, homes with young children, etc. 

 

Such violations are hindering our ability to maintain our community and raise money for charity.  

 

 

We have to do better.  

 

Be sure to follow our forum rules at all times and if you do come across a violation, please click the little flag image beneath the offending post to report it to our staff for removal.

Absolutely not.  This would only encourage more users to post inappropriate content to our forums.  We didn't create NikeTalk so 15 year olds would finally have a place to talk about porn on the Internet.  

 

If you lower the standards in one area, you're effectively lowering standards across the board.

No.  I'm not going to prohibit people from posting pictures of people they find attractive - so long as those images are in compliance with our policy.  If you can see it in a TV ad or on a billboard that would appear in a public place, that's fine.  It would be silly to ban you guys from participating in those types of threads if, for all we know, an ad with a swimsuit model may be served by Google AdSense at any given moment.  

 

What we DO have a problem with are posts where those images go BEYOND what you'd find on network television and in advertisements appearing in public places.  (e.g. the "extreme close-ups", etc.) 

 

All I'm asking is that you guys keep it sensible, tasteful, and safe for a wide audience.  

 

 

We also obviously have a problem with people requesting links to celebrity sex tapes, discussing pornography, or otherwise creating lewd and inappropriate content on our forums.

You were that kid who asked the teacher if the class had any homework for the night at the end of class when she'd forgotten to assign any, weren't you?

If you felt that way but didn't use the report button then you were doing everybody here a disservice.

Sounds good to me. I enjoy NT's humor and discussion, but don't care for all the sexual stuff that's been being posted lately.

I feel like there are a thousand sites out there for people to view if that's what they want... There isn't need for it here on NT

Thanks Meth pimp.gif

If the content posted hasn't offended or disturbed me personally, why would i waste my time reporting somebody i care nothing about on a topic i care nothing about?

No sarcasm. The lewd photos have gotten a bit out of hand lately.

It's a thin line you are juggling with Meth by keeping those threads open....if my boss walked in on me while browsing one of those threads I'd probably get fired laugh.gif

Keep them open, just don't expect everyone to know the difference between what's acceptable or tasteful and what is not, to every NTer so long as nips or P are not visible is acceptable by NT standards.
