Topless photos and avatars

3. PORN/NSFW MATERIAL

a) Posting or linking to pornographic or shock images, or sites containing these, is forbidden. As a guideline: if you think it might not be suitable for people viewing at work or school, don't post it.
b) As distributing pornography to anyone under 18 years of age is illegal under the laws of most countries in which UKMIXers reside, we could get in legal trouble if we are found to be distributing pornography to underage people. Furthermore, cartoon porn is also considered porn, so that is also part of our regulations as we cannot allow it to be posted.
c) Images, memes, GIFs etc. that contain explicit language/swearing or could be considered unsafe for viewing at work or school should not be posted on the forum. You can post a link to these if you must, however you must warn others of the content behind the link i.e. NSFW/contains swearing.
d) Posting photos of topless men is classed as NSFW therefore not allowed on the forum.
e) Sexually explicit discussion is not appropriate for UKMIX and heavy flirting is discouraged - if you want to take part in this, find somewhere else or do it via private message.

Anyone who posts explicit pornographic material will be banned permanently from the forums as per our zero-tolerance policy in this regard.
I'd hate for there to be any misunderstanding on this, so thought I'd take the opportunity to clarify - at this time, our rules on topless images remain as they have been for some time now: do not post them.

That extends to posts and avatars, if you have them - please remove them and replace with something else. We can't see them all, if you see other users with them, please let a member of the moderation team know.

Will keep this open for a bit, just in case there's any queries.

With respect, that's irrelevant. We have to be very careful what can and can't be posted on UKMix, so it would be great if people can just stick to the rules they agreed to upon signing up to this forum.

Oh, I won't be posting such pictures.
Just don't understand why they can't be posted here.

If guys really feel the need to post shirtless pics of themselves, PM them to me first and I can see whether they’re suitable or not

If you spot these things, then report them to a moderator - the team cannot be expected to spot every instance of rule breaking.

it's not a insult that you can't spot every pic like that, I just spotted the fact that almost-naked women pics are 'more allowed" (no matter how stupid it sounds) than shirtless men pics.

ha! you didn't even remove the pic I've posted :P :P :P /jk

hugs, no drama

I believe the shirtless ban has not to do with UKMIX directly but with Google and its ads.

Just say no nips allowed. Shoulders have caused problems in the past though. :lol:
Sorry, this seems incredibly silly, but if these are the rules...

Changes are afoot, and a review of the rules is high on my list of things to do - I agree this is an impractical rule but we'll need to find the right balance before changing it.

This rule is historically dictated to us by Google (as part of their advertising rules) - until the rules are reviewed properly by the moderation team, it'll stay as it is I'm afraid.

I propose that only shirtless pics of hot well built men should be allowed while all other shirtless pics should be banned.

No, you were banned from having an avatar for four weeks because it was previously removed by the moderation team, you were told why - and then you opted to re-upload it anyway.

Stop playing the martyr, it's boring - you were in the wrong.
