It has been noted that we've been "slipping into something a little too comfortable" lately, so I will take this opportunity to remind all and sundry that these forums are rated PG.



So please, before you post, think about whether your (hypothetical) 9 year old niece should be reading it and respond accordingly...



There are several threads around at the moment which border on too risque... gayfest, straightfest & the recently deleted spanking thread just to name a few. So, if a thread goes missing all of a sudden, and it's been borderline (or beyond), it has been sent to the red-light district of HOP. A dangerous, seedy place where no one dare enter.



Let's keep it clean smile



Thanks.

Problem, MiG is that such an area would tend to turn into a cesspool very quickly, wouldn't it?

i think the idea of a locked area where only "over age" HoPpers are allowed would be a good idea MiG however it would be hard to police weather people were telling the truth on their registration forms it would be easy to imput a false DOB to gain access.

it could be done but would require a lot of effort to make it work

i thought about it ages ago when they deleted the bondage thread i liked that one ubblol

Or you could just start a HoP tribe/myspace/etc... on any of the other millions of adult friendly sites.

I do see a bit of a hypocracy with the fact that I feel that some of the FIRE information on this site is not appropriate for a 9 year old to be reading but I'll keep that to myself. wink

And I certainly always have and always will support any decision made by the HoP administration.

Well, shall we go?

@screech: my way of thinking is that you can't even see the fact that there's a forum there until you are over 16/18 etc. Also, if someone lies specifically to gain access, then they are deliberately skirting rules to gain access, and therefore deserve what they get, whether that be a booting, or a thread full of smut.

Should we really be trying to protect someone that doesn't want to be protected?

Was that deleted? I thought it just got swallowed up by other pages/threads

Making this forum 16/18+ wouldnt exactly be fair (even though it isnt an option atm) when I first came here I think I was like 15 or something, which is older than other people, but if it wasnt for HoP I wouldnt have half of the knowledge that I do about fire safety, or anything else we talk about on here. Used in the correct way, HoP is a fantastic tool. And shouldnt have the restrictions that people have suggested, thank you to Flashfire for saying that it isnt in staging at the moment

Wouldn't an 'Adults Only' forum kinda defeat the 'poi is suitable for everyone' Statement? It would be more like 'Poi is suitable for everyone, but more suitable for people that are over the age of consent'.

IMO, if you want smut, there's Millions of other webpages that can tailor to your needs.

I for one, like the fact that if I were to say 'F**k' or 'S**t' it would be censored.

I agree with LTC in that HOP needs an "Adult" section about as much as elephants need ballet slippers.

It would simply become a smutfest, and this is Home of POI, not Home of PORN.

I'm sad to see that my attempt at resurrecting a tame version of the gayfest was vetoed, but I'll support the admins and mods decisions, even if I don't always agreee with them.

HOWEVER, I reserve the right to poke all the mods in the ribs repeatedly while shouting "VEEEEEEEEEEEP VEEEEEEEEEEEEP VEEEEEEEEEEP" in a shrill, ear-splitting voice! ubblol wink
