I could type out what I'm thinking but there's a smiley that summarises that quite nicely:

Also for those who are offended by nudity need to be educated.
Image Unlike you, most people on the forums don't want to see a person's "private" parts.

The problem here isn't what we consider to be porn. I, for one, have no problem with tasteful nudity. The issue here is what Randy's host considers porn, so having that kind of stuff on the forums, readily available, may potentially violate whatever terms of agreement the host provides, resulting in the entire site getting killed by the host.

You don't want that. Trust me.

Then it could be possible for Randy to move to a new host that allows nudity/porn/pr0n/impse whatever

I hardly think Randy is going to move hosts just so we can show some low grade pr0n on the forum.

Dude, if you seriously wanna see porn, there are much better places to find it than the ZDoom Forums.

Besides, there is no age restriction on the members of this forum, nothing enforceable at least. If porn and such material was allowed on here, it'd be opening up that material to people who shouldn't be viewing it.

Or maybe only allowing simple/tasteful nudity but not porn?

"tasteful" is a subjective term, and there will always be someone who complains. I have no problem with such things, but you know that someone would make a big fuss.

It's hilarious to see how a spriting thread bumbed up recently turned into a discussion of pr0n. :lol: :twisted:

Yeah apparently some people's artistic abilities are being inhibited by the forum's frown upon porn / "tasteful nudity"

EDIT: Question, does that rule include linking to WADs and projects that contain such material?

no since AEOD has a nude female monster from Powerslave and nothing happened.

Ok, the rule probably just applies to actual images and stuff directly linked to the forum. Stuff in WADs might take a little bit of work to find.

Seems like all the female enemies are nude. Why is that? Aren't there any good female resources that are actually wearing something?
