Fine Art Nude Photography

  1. Cant find the location that speaks about criteria for creating a fine art nude photography web site. I would not be posting anything coarse, vulgar - and especially nothing pornographic. Need some feedback on whether a professional, fine-art nude photography site is acceptable on WordPress.com .

    Cheers,
    Giovanni

    The blog I need help with is gioklik.com.

  2. It's allowed but please make sure you report your site as mature so that it's removed from the public areas of WordPress where other sites can appear.

  3. What is the "public area"? If my site is removed from it, will I not get much traffic to my site? Will it be relegated to the periphery of the WordPress world, so to speak?

  4. Hi there,
    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.

    There is no warning notice page provided here. You crate a static front page and post one of your own making on it.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/

    Also you can go to the front of your blog and click the "report blog" link in the dropdown to report it to Staff as "mature".

    For details re: mature content blogs.
    A blog that is marked as Mature is excluded from public areas of the WordPress.com service. This means:

    It is not eligible to be featured in Freshly Pressed on the front page of WordPress.com
    It will not appear in global tag listings
    It will not appear in Top Blogs listings, recent posts, or related posts listings on other blogs
    The blog’s users cannot use that URL as a link in their WordPress.com Forums profile
    from http://en.support.wordpress.com/mature-content/

  5. Thanks. It appears that I would I not be able to attach tags to my various posts? Is that right? If it is, then I would probably not get many people coming to my site. Am I understanding correctly?

  6. You can assign Tags and Categories to your posts, however, your posts will not be displayed on the WordPress.COM Topics ie. Categories and Tags Pages. http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/#missing-posts

  7. tag pages are pretty much irrelevant for hits anyway. I think it has been at least three years since any of my 19 blogs here got a single hit from a tag page.

  8. Thanks for all the feedback. I tend to be somewhat technologically challenged when it comes to Internet vocabulary so here is what I understand: I can attach tags such as "fine art nude photography" and people within the WordPress community will be able to see them and also click on them to go to my site. However, the titles of my posts will not be placed on "Categories" and "Tags Pages." - Correct?

    What are Tag pages and how do they differ from "tags"? And the Categories...is it a page where posts are placed in categories?

    Would love to clear up the vocabulary. All I want is to be able to be seen by the WordPress community so that people interested in my work can connect with my site. I accept exclusion from the criteria that you listed above, "timethief", I just don't want to be relegated to a neutral zone somewhere on the periphery of the WordPress system where no one would be able to know that my site exists - that is my fear. Is my fear warranted?

    Cheers!
    Giovanni

  9. Again...I thank you for the feedback. Just want to clarify. Thanks!

  10. There are tag pages (specifically tag archive pages) on your site, just click on a tag in one of your posts and it will automatically show you a list of your posts with the same tag. This works for authors and dates and categories too. They're useful for organising your site.

    The tags you use here will also show up in the public tag pages like this one for photography. When you report your site as mature this will stop happening to avoid younger users (and anyone who wants to avoid sweary/nudey/etc content) from seeing something that they shouldn't.

    You can still publicise your blog any other way you see fit, although as a courtesy you might like to include a disclaimer somewhere on your homepage so when people visit your site they know what to expect!

  11. I would greatly appreciate if one can explain me the "adult status" of the following site
    http://americangallery.wordpress.com/2012/11/13/john-currin-1962-2/. Are these images the adult content, or not? And why? How this content is related with the general rules described in http://en.support.wordpress.com/mature-content/, and especially with the statement "...such as images or video of explicit sexual acts or close-up images of genitalia".

    Personally I am not definitely against watching by my teenage children the artistic nude photography such as http://risenphoenixphoto8-28.tumblr.com/archive which eventually may teach the female anatomy in the very cultural way. On the other hand it is extremely difficult to me, to explain John Currin in terms of the achivements in American contemporary art which is now, or may be in the next future, exposed to open public.

    Which of these two sites should rather be marked as "adult content" in wordpress.com?

    Yhanks for your explanation.
    Best Regards
    K.M/
