Every time I scan through the galleries this one snags me every time and . . . it just bothers me. Nothing personal against the artist, of course. I'm just conserned about it's placement in the galleries as opposed to the rules/standards set forth in the galleries.
Gawt, I should turn a cop and get it over with.

That picture does could a tad bit shocking at first. Though I really can't say it's any worse than this image here: And in the end it's funny more than it is provocative.

Also, I guess it's because I don't find that stuff funny so of course, *SHAWK*
I'm just trying to understand the boundaries on this site since I'm still quite fresh.

In all honesty after I took over I tamed this site back a fair amount. Use to have a adult section, don't now. But anyways, you will get use to the boundaries of the site.

Thanks for the info, guys.
Fair enough on the forum and I agree, Chief. But wouldn't that include the gallery? Because I can't bring myself to send a preteen to a gallery with images like the one referenced. (I'm rather conscious about this stuff because I work with youth and am surrounded by kids). I'd just send them the comic itself since that's the major promotional project.

Ive honestly never had any issues or complaints about it in till this specific one. To be honest, I'm not overly concerned about it. I think the rule against nudity in the gallery and anything with any sort of nudity on the forum needs warning flags and spoiler tags all over it. Not to mention I'm strict on that stuff too.
There is a lot more risky stuff everywhere on the net and on TV then what you will find in the gallery. I'll think about getting artists to put warning tags on pieces like this but thats really it.

It does. It was right in my face as soon as I entered the gallery, but I'm an adult so I'm able to ignore/avoid whatever I want on the net.
And I would say a partially dressed kinky situation is worse than a nude image with cleaner content/intent. I've seen lots of the latter in classic shows/books for kids and classical art.
Fine for you if it's an adult gallery, but not for 11-14 year olds.
C'mon, Admins, you all need to decide what audience is your target. You are using this site to promote a great show and knowing your target audience is rather basic. I am positive that if you get kids into the show through this site, they will want to submit fan art.
I just wanted to bring that to the table, thanks for listening.

"What makes Sally and Bunnie kissing more 'adult' than Sonic and Sally kissing?"
Then I had a look at the pic again. "Oh yeah. I guess that carrot there does change things a bit, doesn't it?"

Like I said, the site needs to make up its mind on its target audience.

Because we seem to be attracting some pre teens and so on because of the comic and other things does not mean that I'm full out targeting them.
The website that fully targets a younger audience would be SMS. Not us. We just get them from time to time, more now then before because of the comic but thats it.
All in all, I'm not going to leave out one group or another, but my target audience has never been younger kids.
I could make a warning on the main site about the Gallery containing some suggestive scenes, however thats not going to stop the random pic generator and.. Would just seem kinda useless having a warning in one area where right on the main page its showing the images anyways.
But if you want a site thats more open to kids and what not, go to SMS. Ive tamed down the site a bit to fit in some younger teens and so on, but I'm not going to tame it down so much where I cut off the older audience (which is mostly what I get). Hell, the second comic in the works will not be child friendly one bit.
Anyways, thats that. The site already attracts the audience we really look for.

I will look into it but this has been my first complaint of anything like this. So, again, I'm not worried about it.
If enough people complain and want it out then I will remove anything adultish. But for now.. I don't think so.
