Default Adult Content Changes


The latest changes to Adult Content require you to join the "adult" group to view the forum.

You are not allowed to join the adult group if you are under the age of 18. If your DOB does not match the requirement, you will be banned.

So please just respect the rules, and wait until you're 18 to view the material in that forum.

--the group was recently bugged so you couldn't post replies/threads. That has been fixed.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

you should have a message popup for those who come to Adult Content without joining adult group first. Even though I have some stuff published in that area - after changes to the site - I was under impression that every entry was simply removed.

Unfortunately there is no way to do that, as the ability to track what a user reads is an invasion of privacy. We don't do that here.

A notice was put in the description, and no worries all your work is there.

I am surprised that "user's privacy" is involved here. Programmatically, you don't have to read user's name when you redirect him from url to url. All you have to do is identify whether the user is older than 18 and whether or not he belongs to an adult group:
if((user.isOlderThan18())&&(!user.belongsToAdultGroup())){
displayMessage("To view this you have to register with adult group");
} //or something like this
You have a mechanism like this when you redirect a user who is not logged in to the adult content page. It's just a matter of utilizing this mechanism in a new logic block. Now when an adult user gets to the page he sees: "There are no posts in this category."

If programming was as verbosely logical as that, life would be easy in web-development.

Unfortunately I can't hook something like that, that easily.

Some members may not want to see the content in that forum by default, so for now we're keeping it as a publically joinable group.

Hi,
I have been trying to join the adult content group, since I have written a steamy piece of work and want to post it.
However it seems impossible for me to join. My year of birth is 1966 so I am definitely adult myself.
Help me to join, please.

Back again, took another look and found a dot to click. Voila, I am a member now.

I know this sounds noobish, but how many posts and what other requirements do I need before I post some of my "adult content" on this forum?

The AC forum has the same 5-post rule as the rest of the Write Here section - the only difference is that you need to be a member of the adult content group

If you have any other questions, please feel free to PM a staff member

Allright. Basically I just want people to tell me if the adult content in my writing is either too obscene, not obscene enough, or just right for the theme of my book. I want to push boundaries but at the same time I don't want to be over the top to where I will only end up alienating readers. Know what I mean?

If you have to ask, you've overcooked it.

I got good reviews for my first volume and that had blood and guts, severed limbs-heads-genitals, sexual situations, drug and alcohol abuse from some of the important characters, depictions of torture, and a scene detailing a human sacrifice ritual. I'm beginning to do the rewrite for my second volume. So when I come across the sex & violence stuff I will be sure to post it here.
