Forums - Website Topics - Is this website actually SFW?

Maybe it's just me, but for the most part, I think a lot of sigs and avis here are completely fine.

There are obviously some exceptions, but for the most part, I think you can be on this site, and not have to worry about NSFW material every second.

Is my new avy SFW? Honest question.


It is, though it feels more like you're fishing for votes in the GU Tournament!

 

"Vote me and you get the rest of the picture!".

Thanks, good to know.

And no, something this nasty would not come from a pure mind like mine.

On a serious note, I'm not going to show anything. Relax.





Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

But why do you want to remove it?

A lot of people probably like them

Well that's disappointing.

Well, what I think is having a more strict website in terms of sigs and avatars makes it less fun. Heck many websites including sites like neogaf have avatars that are just like the ones from vgc if not worse and that site has game devs and etc. The best solution is to have an option to disable avatars and sigs either instead of being more strict. I personally dont think vgc is in nsfw but rather in the gray area since I do access the site from work at times and making it less fun = zzz

 

To be fair, your 'boobies' signature is ridiculously immature. If you need to post 'boobies' everywhere to 'have fun,' then that's kind of your problem, isn't it?



Speaking personally, i think we should have relatively strict rules on avatars being SFW (bar obvious exceptions, like someone having a Bayonetta avatar), but be looser on signatures. That way those that like to express themselves with NSFW-esk stuff can do so (*waves at Captain_Yuri*), and those that don't want to see those signatures can simply turn them off. It's not a perfect solution, but i think both sides giving something up is preferable to one getting everything they want and the other nothing.

It's not like many use their signatures for such things anyway. This thread has over 100 posts, and there's only 1 person with anything NSFW-esk (*waves at Captain_Yuri again*), debatably 2 if we include whatever the heck is going on in Jason's signature :p

In an ideal world it'd be nice to give users more control over what they see in general though. Would be cool if the mods could tag signatures as NSFW, and users could choose weather they wanted to see those tagged signatures or not in their settings.

At least it isn't like 9Gag.

 

100% of people will never use apps like 9Gag in public, since there's a high chance the popular posts will involve someone semi-nude

12/22/2016- Made a bet with Ganoncrotch that the first 6 months of 2017 will be worse than 2016. A poll will be made to determine the winner. Loser has to take a picture of them imitating their profile picture.

Immature? Sure but if u are coming to vgc or really any forum to seek "maturity," then u are going to the wrong places... And its not really just "boobies" to "have fun" but rather the environment. Having a relaxed environment generally leads to more users being active and whether u like them or not, many people do love boobies which is why many sites that allow them within reason. Having a site that doesn't allow them, specially for new users results in strict environments. If professional tech sites and many gaming sites can allow boobies while still having a great user base that is way bigger than vgc... Why can't vgc have them?

It has been proven over and over again that having boobies part of an avatar/sig within reason doesn't do a site harm yet we continue have a thread like this every year and bam, it gets restrictive which makes the site more zzz for a lot of people. If it was only me, then I would be the only one in the side of allowing more avatars/sigs like mine but I am not. Also the fact that we have these threads every year also shows that people do indeed want it... Specially if u look at the summer avatars/sig. The best solution as someone already said is to have a button that disables sigs/avatars whether it be on a per user baises or site wide.
