Please change the name of the 'Need More Boobies' Board to Hubad Modelo, or something similar. Better still get rid of it.

A TMP Good Guy is in torment for his 'off the cuff' suggestion being taken up and used on TMP, and many others dislike the name. Better still get rid of it altogether.

Change it or get rid of it, please. We care not for any poll results in the past. We want no excuses. This is for one of your TMPers. Your TMP is experiencing change and improvements aplenty and this is one of them.

Your humble servant, etc., etc.

Broglie Inactive Member02 Aug 2014 10:42 a.m. PST

Remove the board altogether I say and don't tell me it is connected to wargaming. It is offensive.

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP02 Aug 2014 10:46 a.m. PST

I would not disagree with that suggestion and neither would the OFM.

Bad Squiddo Games02 Aug 2014 10:51 a.m. PST

I must admit I find it a rather strange subforum.

Texas Jack02 Aug 2014 10:54 a.m. PST

I agree, a name change would not be unwelcome.

So we've been beating this horse for almost three years now. Put it up for a poll suggestion and see what happens. I don't believe there will be enough support to make any kind of change.

CraigH Inactive Member02 Aug 2014 11:13 a.m. PST

yep – time for a new name

Abwehrschlacht Inactive Member02 Aug 2014 11:14 a.m. PST

Agreed, get rid. It's a stupid name that I would have found amusing when I was 15.

Personal logo Weasel Supporting Member of TMP02 Aug 2014 11:19 a.m. PST

Maybe we can add a "fat white dudes" board too.

and for the record: My vote is on getting the hell rid of it.

Cherno02 Aug 2014 11:25 a.m. PST

This is probably one of the most frequented boards (thanks to Tango ;) ), plus, do we really want to miss out on all those gorgeous-if-sexualized italian miniatures Tango posts regularly?

napthyme Sponsoring Member of TMP02 Aug 2014 11:30 a.m. PST

As I said before if all you guys would stop buying them, then they would stop making them and then we would not need the board in the first place.

Zargon Inactive Member02 Aug 2014 11:33 a.m. PST

So its fig leaves for Gaelic fanatics and pastes for the Indian maiden guards? Grow up men! its less salacious than 50s Playboy and that's saying something.

Personal logo A sea that raged no more Supporting Member of TMP02 Aug 2014 11:48 a.m. PST

Grow up men!

Hilarious! IALMAO thumbs up

brunet Inactive Member02 Aug 2014 12:04 p.m. PST

just get rid of it

mashrewba Inactive Member02 Aug 2014 12:05 p.m. PST

I'd keep it as a useful resource for people who have never had and never will have any sort of actual sexual experience (with another person) -smiley bloody face…

evilcartoonist Inactive Member02 Aug 2014 12:12 p.m. PST

Well, if we're going to name it something different, I offer some suggestions:

- Milk-maker minis
- Old Fogies don't like the word "Boobies."
- Bras of Zardoz
- Daddy, what are those
- Bleeped texts Ahoy!

Personal logo The Virtual Armchair General Sponsoring Member of TMP02 Aug 2014 12:18 p.m. PST

Appearances do matter. The title demeans the rest of the site and panders to the eternal thirteen-year-olds among us.

Keep the forum, but change the name.

And it's not "Puritanical" to differentiate what's appropriate by location and context.

Images of explicit sex acts are appropriate for "Bimbos Go Berserk" magazine, but not in "Popular Mechanics."

GildasFacit Sponsoring Member of TMP02 Aug 2014 12:32 p.m. PST

I don't know, I'd think that such acts are actually quite popular, mechanical or otherwise.

Zargon Inactive Member02 Aug 2014 12:37 p.m. PST

Luv it! can I steal 'Bras of Zardoz' I have some senario ideas 8+)

We're planning to bring back the polls next week, and this sounds like a good candidate for one of the first community votes.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to clear up some of my backlog AND look into a bug involving Internet Explorer and people trying to log into their accounts…

Personal logo A sea that raged no more Supporting Member of TMP02 Aug 2014 1:20 p.m. PST

Tish and pish! This calls for executive action. Ask your sub-Editors – I'm sure they get the issue here.

Or, Dear Editor in Chief could just do it himself. Thus sparing us all those rumored Frothers sock puppets voting to retain them so we could keep up the bad blood.
I favor a tyrannical unilateral decision meself, bypassing the legislature

Those aren't my words but they get straight to the heart of the issue …beware sock puppet voters!! They keep you in the mire.

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian02 Aug 2014 1:29 p.m. PST

Tish and pish! This calls for executive action.

The board was created by community vote; if it is done away with or renamed, it should also be done by community vote.

huh?

Er, yeah, but if we good types lose that vote then we will continue to be saddled with that awful named Board.

Hmmn, what don't you get? laugh

I'm cool with "The BDSM Board"…just saying.

Rhysius Cambrensis02 Aug 2014 2:06 p.m. PST

Hang on, I have seen many, many male wargamers with boobies or, more commonly referred to as moobs or moobies!

To get rid of this board would be, to call them fat! As you would be saying they need less boobies by renaming this board!

That is my logic and I am sticking with it.

Rhysius Cambrensis02 Aug 2014 2:07 p.m. PST

And also, since when has Oliver Cromwell been a member of TMP!? Are we banning Christmas as well on TMP this year!?

mashrewba Inactive Member02 Aug 2014 2:19 p.m. PST

Why would we be banning Christmas? I don't see the connection or is this what is known as a straw man approach?
Warmaster Horus -well it's thought but surely the Net has no shortage of those already -bad boy!!!

Rhysius Cambrensis02 Aug 2014 2:29 p.m. PST

Oliver Cromwell banned all sorts of fun and frivolities including Christmas as he deemed certain activities like theatre, drinking and Christmas celebrations to be sinful.

It's called the sarcastic approach.

mashrewba Inactive Member02 Aug 2014 2:31 p.m. PST

Well they were.

Rhysius Cambrensis02 Aug 2014 2:37 p.m. PST

Ha ha ha. I'm never coming to yours!

Don't write it off it's always a riot – Bleeped text

skippy0001 Supporting Member of TMP02 Aug 2014 3:19 p.m. PST

I think it should be called 'Thanks For The Mamaries'.

Or overly top heavied, spine-wrenched fashion-challenged female figures.

Personal logo Weasel Supporting Member of TMP02 Aug 2014 3:23 p.m. PST

I don't think anyone is concerned about the miniatures. The concern is about the forum title.

Hal Thinglum Supporting Member of TMP02 Aug 2014 3:26 p.m. PST

I didn't know this was a board… sounds offensive to me. I've wondered what it was when I saw it in print. Take it away; no need for a poll. Time to grow up…. 13-year-olds love this sort of thing.

Cherno02 Aug 2014 3:43 p.m. PST

I agree… No heterosexual adult male was ever known to have been attracted to breasts.

Playboy & Co are also only read for the interesting and well-researched articles.

Personal logo Weasel Supporting Member of TMP02 Aug 2014 3:56 p.m. PST

That's why I read porn in church. Context doesn't matter.

BrianW02 Aug 2014 4:04 p.m. PST

Weasel,
It is, perhaps, not possible to "like" that comment enough. Spot on!

Get rid of it. And anyone who has ever started a thread on it. And their mums.

Another case of "It offends ME so it MUST go. Don't ask anyone else, just DO IT. If you put it to a vote and the vote goes against ME it will be because of the evil Frother Sockpuppets . Besides, "We're doing it for the children." "

Here's a vote for no boards or posts of a sexual nature or subject at all. It's supposed to be about wargaming and i for one, am getting very tired of all the crap.
