    Clarification of the rules

    Due to some people stretching the rules too far...(and ruining it for everyone else in the process)

    here is what we mean by PG-13

    I just checked to see if it was possible to hae a post count limit on the forum and unfortunately it isn't. As far as the visual contents of the forum, it should be PG13, which means you should not be posting pictures of people laying dead on the highway with thier brains spilling all over the place, and you should not be posting pictures of girls in their bikinis. This means they can pretty much post nearly anything else in this world. If we're going to re-do the forum rules, make sure that you tell them why everything should be PG13. In case you guys are still not clear on this, it is becuase people get in trouble when they browse this car forum during work and occasionallly at home. Some people may think its not a big deal but you can easily lose your job for looking at stuff like that during work.


    So keep your posts, avatars, and sigs appropiate. If you don't it's grounds for instant ban.

    Sorry for the bad news.

    Girls in bikinis is really PG13-ok material, unless it's a significantly skimpy bikini. So, are those banned anyways, or not?

    girls in bikinis

    It might be PG-13 but it is not work safe.

    You might find it perfectly acceptable, but the question is, would it be acceptable for an unknown population of others, in a wide range of viewing environments.

    Someone glancing into someone's cube at work seeing a bikini girl image on the computer screen is all too likely to jump to the conclusion that the person is viewing porn. That leads to rumors and that can impact job retention and advancement even if it is not true. That can also get you fired and escorted to the door on the spot in many large corporations. I have largely quit browsing this forum at work for that reason.

    Yeah, but who wants to work somewhere that closed-minded?

    I can understand the issue though. I certainly don't want to be responsible for anyone getting fired or not promoted or whatever. I wonder if there's a SFW plugin for vBulletin to allow people to tag material as NSFW, and a user setting to say if you want to see that stuff. Hmm...

    Oh well. I don't read clubwrx.net for the pictures of girls

    I'm not trying to stir trouble, but if you're concerned about nws avatars, you can always turn off the avatar feature in the user control panel. I know that in the past, I've had an avatar of a girl in her bikini, I didn't know about the rules, I was asked to take it off, and I did without question. We are all here to talk about cars here, and if we want to post Rated-R avatars, there are forums out there where you can do that.

    Thanks,

    The general idea is that you could have any page of Clubwrx loaded up on your computer while your boss (regardless of how closed minded your company is) was there. There are PLENTY of places for p0rn, bikinis, etc on the internet, that's why we have no patience for it here. It would take me probably 1 minute to register at www.offtopic.net and post all the p0rn I wanted.....by all means, use that as a resource if you feel the need
