Excellent solution! That should do a lot to reduce the number of accidental sightings that offend people. Thank you, Eka.

Awesome idea, though you might want to put this message somewhere on the front page. I was worried for about 5 minutes until I found this.

I would love to see this done to the roleplay forum. Especially the "private" roleplay forum.

That makes no sense whatsoever and seen entirely unrelated. Please don't go around spreading false rumors.

On behalf of British people who don't want to take the risk of getting caught, thanks Eka.

If you're not registered to that forum section, then it's much harder for the police, or anyone else, to say you come here just for the 'underage' content. It makes it safer for us to come here now that new law's out

Underaged viewers are strictly forbidden. You aren't allowed on this site if you're under 18 years of age - that's explained in the site rules, rule #2 to be exact.

The underaged board is strictly for uploading and viewing vore material depicting underaged preds or prey.

I think you misread. You need to be invited to be a moderator for the Japanese forum.


On topic, I think this is a wonderfully fantastic idea, Eka. It keeps people who are very squicked out by underaged material from accidentally happening across the board via a link from another part of the Portal.

All good and all, except it's probably going to kill the forum after a few weeks/months since no one's ever going to bother to look it up and we'll barely get any new members ;-;

Here's hoping I'm wrong, though ;P

I somewhat agree with Agora. That forum was already so slow to garner new content, not that I can speak since I rarely come here or have time to contribute anymore. Still, glad to see that part of these forums isn't gone from the site (like I first feared when I saw it missing). Still a bit annoyed that so many people in our society have to get so touchy about the subject of fictional children... so much so that we feel like we have to hide this kind of thing in the sand.

Frackin' AWESOME!!! Anyone who goes there really, really wanted to go there. You're my heroine. Again. (Because I never want to accidentally click that one day.)

Nope. Because not everyone, wants to see that stuff, or even be associated with it. If you want to see and post in it, you join the usergroup, otherwise, you don't have to deal with it.

The only concern I have is the legality of said forum... It kind of sits on that good old murky line between legal and not legal where I live...
I mean do the contents constitute any thing illegal, by means of depicting individuals under the age of 18 (just going of the US law, only because if I break it. The legal system would throw my Pregnant ass in jail...)
Or could this be a good example of "Age Play" as every on Aryion.com has to be 18 years of age or older which is perfectly legal, for the most part.
Hmmm I better not tempt fate.
Oh and Eka thank you for making it o that users have to go threw and extra step to view that particular forum. I have to agree with Baz, it's nice that now the cops can't say thats why I come here. Thanks for looking out for us.

I too am concerned about the legal issue. I am not a member of the underage forum, so I don't know exactly what is allowed there, but you should be aware of 18 USC section 1466a, passed by the US Congress in 2003:

(a) In General.— Any person who, in a circumstance described in subsection (d), knowingly produces, distributes, receives, or possesses with intent to distribute, a visual depiction of any kind, including a drawing, cartoon, sculpture, or painting, that—
(1)
(A) depicts a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct; and
(B) is obscene; or
(2)
(A) depicts an image that is, or appears to be, of a minor engaging in graphic bestiality, sadistic or masochistic abuse, or sexual intercourse, including genital-genital, oral-genital, anal-genital, or oral-anal, whether between persons of the same or opposite sex; and
(B) lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value;
or attempts or conspires to do so, shall be subject to the penalties provided in section 2252A (b)(1), including the penalties provided for cases involving a prior conviction.

http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/18/1466A.html

The US government does not seem to have much interest in enforcing this, but this is section 2252A: http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/usc_s ... A000-.html

I was surprised to see you had an underage section. I also wondered what it meant considering the law. I'm sending you an email regarding this.

Sometimes I worry that the FBI will make an account and link most people on this site as pedophiles, despite, to the best (I hope) of my knowledge they're not.

Related to the person's post above me, yeah, I guess there's the saying, "To each their own," but don't people worry about being acquainted with something that's considerably illegal? In addition, personally, I am against pedophilia on both a lawful and moral level.
