I've posted this many times in different places, but there are still a lot of you who don't understand the rules about posting images.

You may not post any images that are provocative, lewd, or vulgar.

A few specific examples:

- No animated images of women that focus on their breasts or butts.

- No images of women in g-strings or tiny bikinis/lingerie. (newly added from old guidelines, but needed due to some of the extreme g-string pics I've seen posted.)

- No sexually suggestive images.

These are not the only type of images that are considered inappropriate. If you don't understand the rule, don't post any images.

I've received a few PMs from members who are confused about the 'No images of women in g-strings or tiny bikinis/lingerie.'

This is a little more stringent than the old guideline that a women must be 'wearing a top and bottom'. However, it was needed due to the extreme g-string pictures I've seen that are inappropriate for this forum.

Still some confusion, so I'll open this up to questions for a little while.

Are men in g-strings still OK?

I know you are just trying to be 'funny', but the answer is no.

As I said 'These are not the only type of images that are considered inappropriate. '

Now any serious questions?

It may seem silly, but how about an example of what is acceptable so we have some sort of a reference. I saw some pics removed earlier that kinda surprised me as they've been acceptable in the past. And I honestly didn't see what was wrong with them. But I didnt know the rule adjustment either.

Are you talking about the images in the game day topic in NFL general? They were not removed because they were inappropriate, but because they don't belong in a game day topic.

This seems weird and honestly kind of pervy, but I just want to make sure I don't break the rules at some point and get warned. Would regular thongs be okay as opposed to just a g-string or is it pretty much any underwear that doesn't cover the whole butt cheek that is against the rules?

No, thongs wouldn't be OK. As you said, it needs to 'cover the whole butt'.

My only question about this would be:

What exactly does "No sexually suggestive images" mean? That seems like something that could be different to every poster, every mod, and different to you as well.

That's all I can think of for now.

Sorry I can't really be specific about that one. I can't list out all the things that could be 'sexually suggestive' without being graphic. For the most part though, members don't seem to have a problem with this one. I think most people have a good idea of what 'sexually suggestive' means.
