    Hi o.o

    As some of you may have noticed, a while back the 18+ section disappeared. An admin came in and removed it. We weren’t given notice beforehand.

    So as of this moment, 18+ threads will be allowed in the regular sections as long as they don’t violate our rules. Porn is obviously not allowed. Keep it tasteful.


    All 18+ threads must have [18+] in the beginning of title. Keep the title appropriate since that is not something we can hide from everyone.


    Verbals and Warnings will be given out if you guys don’t abide by this.

    ok but what if someone under 18 comes in and start replying?
    It wont be OP's responsibility to police them right?

    As long as the 18+ tag is there in the title and the title is not something like "hot titties."
    Anyone who doesn't want to see 18+ content shouldn't be in there, so OPs don't have to police anyone.

    Umm... It was removed because it's a kpop forum, not a sex talk site. And now users can just post it all in the main forums for everyone to see including underage users or users who don't feel comfortable with that kind of talk. Either forbid 18+ threads or open the section again, this doesn't make sense sorry. Sure you can just not click on it but titles can be disturbing already or you tried to click on the thread above/under.

    I think thread titles should be "work appropriate" and the mod addressed that already.

    As for accidentally clicking the wrong thread, people need to take some responsibility for themselves imo.

    I would say you have a point, but if that were the case, alot of the sections would have to removed too since they are clearly not about kpop, like current event sections, which contain alot of political related content.
    But that aside, Mods have no control when an admin takes something away from the site so they can't put back even if they wanted to.
    If you read the what OP said the titles will be scrutinised and warning points will be given to those who break the rules (would also help if people reported said content)
    Considering there are many users of different ages to restrict one group and not the other is not exactly fair.
    18+ doesn't necessarily mean sexual talk, it can also include triggering issues for some, or just general age related comfort on certain issue (some users perfer to talk to people their own age about certain issues)

    But regardless accidently clicking is a concern so I understand that point. Useless you wanna take up the issue with an actual admin (which will probably go nowhere ).. I think this is the best option to appease everyone.

    Honestly I think we are just getting closer to Johnny wanting to shut the whole forum down again.

    Except if you don't care about jpop for example, you simply stay out of the section. It's understandable there is a jpop section as many kpop groups release Japanese songs as well and many kpop fans also like jpop, cpop and anime (I don't, but that was my point) meanwhile if you don't want to see sexual talk, it still gets shoved in your face when you enter the lounge or kpop section... I can see why the tag could be used for other reasons, it's just that no one does that.

    There are a lot of non kpop topics on here, so should they be banned too?

    Common sense prevails here with using a work safe topic and the 18+ notice. Users need to take responsibility for what they consume on the internet, here included.

    Yeah this makes no sense - there's literal 12/13 year olds that post on the main forum and you just want to throw 18+ content in the same place

    This site honestly has zero sense

    I understand what you're saying, hence it was one of the main reasons why the 18+ section was bought back in the first place to stop that happening. However the owner of the site didnt want that it seems.
    So we can only govern ourselves the best we can, but users governing themselves has always been an issue here.

    There are songs and videos that are open and out there about sex and provocative all around. Just like how you have flower boy concepts, you have kpop songs that talk about sex and adult topics in a provocative way like the wonderful BEG song Warm Hole (it's a song, I swear).
    As some of the lovely users above have worded it, titles should be work appropriate.

    Even before the 18+ section, 18+ content never took over the site so it's not really shoved in your face. I would argue that it's more kpop stuff that is shoved in your face. Like fan wars. :sweatr:

    The sudden surge of 18+ posts on the Kpop section is just a big breath of fresh air away from the constant fanwars
