In your TMP forum settings, have you unsubscribed from the NSFW Board?

I didn't know I could do that
never heard of the NSFW board

If you are uncomfortable with the board, then shut it down. Not that many care one way or the other.

Cacique Caribe Inactive Member10 Feb 2018 12:00 p.m. PST

Nope. I don't look at TMP when I'm at work, and I haven't been at work in a long time.

No but I generally do not read NSFW posts

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP10 Feb 2018 12:33 p.m. PST

Yes. I have it turned off.
I'm tired of badly modeled but well sculpted female figures with huge bazongas, armor that protects nothing, and surfboard swords.

They're not disgusting, just dumb.
Not "stupid". Dumb. That's worse.

I wouldn't miss it.

zoneofcontrol Inactive Member10 Feb 2018 12:35 p.m. PST

No, why would I do that?

Ed Mohrmann Supporting Member of TMP10 Feb 2018 12:36 p.m. PST

Since I'm retired (mostly), no…

Yes, as well as many of the other boards for periods or subjects that don't interest me. It keeps chatter on the front page down. Sometimes I do go through and read these other boards.

I have no idea, I've never noticed it, only time I've been there has been to check a link that had gotton armand in the doghouse.

No, I turn nothing off. I also don't stifle or ignore. It's not hard to not click on things I don't wish to read, and sometimes folks I find typically annoying surprise me.

Personal logo miniMo Supporting Member of TMP10 Feb 2018 2:14 p.m. PST

The day it appeared.

I was also glad the board appeared to siphon off all those reposts from Cool Mini Or Not. I could go there if I wanted to check out that sort of modelling.

No, I haven't turned it off. Yes, I knew I could. Some of the pictures do make me think I should reconsider.

For what it's worth, TMP is blocked by my employer.


King Monkey10 Feb 2018 2:37 p.m. PST

No, just don't bother looking.

Personal logo 20thmaine Supporting Member of TMP10 Feb 2018 2:54 p.m. PST

No – but I vary rarely look at any posts there. And when I do I usually wish I hadn't.

No. If it offends you don't click it.

Who cares one way or the other?

I don't recall seeing it pop up much and if it does and the topic doesn't interest me I just move on.

Simple really…

Yes if it is "NSFW" it isn't what I want to see. And BTW I am retired.

martin goddard Sponsoring Member of TMP11 Feb 2018 3:21 a.m. PST

Never seen it before.
Went to have a look and found it is really the "tango board". Why not invite tango to post all his stuff there and solve the issue. Folk could go there to find tango stuff and see nude figures too? Win win

Any nude figure that is not porno-graphic could be put on the relevant era board?

Gokiburi11 Feb 2018 6:53 a.m. PST

I didn't have it turned off, but now that you've reminded me to, I will. Not for any prudish reasons, but because it leaves more room on the front page for things that interest me more. And frankly I've found much of its content consisted of miniatures and paintjobs I was already aware of, or were not worth viewing in the first place.

Any nude figure that is not porno-graphic could be put on the relevant era board?

Non-pornographic and not safe for work are two different criteria. Pornographic is a nebulous, ever-shifting concept that is highly contextual and massively inconsistent. NSFW is much more poorly defined than that.

I don't have anything turned off, but I don't look at NSFW as "fair use" of Internet resources at work during lunch. I also don't look at the Fantasy (and a couple others) boards since a ton of the scantily dressed male and female figures are NSFW.

For example, my "Male Strippers" thread would probably hit NSFW standards at work. Even though everyone is "clothed". The least being a guy in a Speedo, which, based on the source figure from which it was converted (Marvel Prince Namor) is perfectly acceptable to put on the cover of comics targeted at children. Even the guys repainted from Superman fully clothed with just his shirt opened at front (the spandex and "S" is repainted fleshtone) probably would be objectionable.

@Gokiburi, front page management was the reason I turned it off.

jambo1 Inactive Member11 Feb 2018 9:00 a.m. PST

No but then I never go on it at all anyway.

Oberlindes Sol LIC11 Feb 2018 9:37 a.m. PST

I didn't know I could do that, but I wouldn't anyway. No one sees my screen but me.

deephorse11 Feb 2018 9:52 a.m. PST

I don't have any boards turned off, but, as someone else said, I've only ever gone there to see why Tango has been DH'd yet again, and then wished I hadn't.

Black Cavalier Inactive Member11 Feb 2018 9:55 a.m. PST

Bill, I hope the TMP database is robust enough that you could easily get this question by a simple database query. So I wonder what your purpose is in asking this question.

If you wanted to get the reasons for why people have turned it off or not, then ask that as a direct question.
