Mature content.

  1. I want to start a new blog conceirning the history of magazines, with lots of old and pulp magazines. Some of them are so called men magazines. Some of these magazines contains nudity, but never explicite or active porn. Is it ok to have these magazines or better not ? Or shall i make these posts password protected ? Or just not post anything with these magazines ?

    The blog I need help with is undergroundcomixworld.wordpress.com.

  2. It should be fine. Occasional nudity is tolerated, but staff make the call on whether or not something is "occasional".

  3. I agree that you need to ask Staff but does this help?
    From the TOS http://en.wordpress.com/tos/
    Please don’t:
    •Post explicit sexual materials that can be considered pornographic, such as explicit images or video of sexual acts or close-up images of genitalia;
    •Post links or banner ads to adult-oriented affiliate networks, such as pornography site signups;
    •Post links, text, or images promoting or advertising escort services;
    •Post images of extreme violence or gore without associated context or commentary;
    •Post images of child pornography;
    •Post content that promotes pedophilia, such as blogs with galleries of images of children where the images, content surrounding the images, or the intent of the blog is sexually suggestive.

  4. Thanks timethief, i had read the TOS and thought it would be ok because none of the magazines or covers or text are violating these terms. But would like to know some other opinions. I guess ask the staff is the best thing to do if i still have some doubts.

  5. Also, here's the support doc regarding Mature Content http://en.support.wordpress.com/mature-content/ and in addition to the points that tt mentioned, it has a bit more information on the ramifications of marking your site mature.

    But would like to know some other opinions.

    This is not a matter of opinion. IMHO it's always best to communicate with Staff, lest you find that not doing so results in a blog that has been deleted.

    Good day to you. :)

  7. This reply by Markel who is the TOS person on WordPress.com may also give you some insights.

    As tt said, it's not a matter of opinion. Ask Staff.

    ~~@tt and good night from me.

  8. ~~Sleep well and have sweet dreams, Jennifer. :)
