    Okay this has been asked quite some times so I thought this over some. I'm considering a new sub forum to act as an 'adult' room. The same Pinside rules will apply, but pics like the first post in the men's thread are allowed. Posts from this forum will not appear on the forum front page so you'll have to click on the subforum to see topics.

    Along with that new sub forum, I also want to ask of you all to keep the pics out of the 'regular forum'. This is not because I don't like the occasional hot chick photo (on the contrary), but there are people visiting the site who want to be able to browse the Pinside forum at work, or who browse it with family in the room and don't want a "surprise" like this thread to pop up.

    A second thing I would like to point out is that the threads mentioning certain porn stars or hot models are top hits on Google and cause a lot of (non pinball related) traffic to hit the server. This is not cool as I don't want to spend my hosting money (and that of those who donated) to that kind of traffic. Now, bringing this stuff to a sub forum will allow me to ban search engines from it via a simple robots.txt file rule.

    So....
    1) what do you think of this idea? Use the poll to vote.
    2) what should this sub-forum be called?
    3) should access to the sub-forum be invite-only (so completely hidden from new users)?

    lol, that's me most of the time. always workin...

    sub forum name, possilbly something like Pin-up, etc

    #3 8 years ago

    Personally i dont care for it at all on this site as im just here for the pinball but also not against others choice to do so....but I do think its a great idea to remove from regular forum and topics.

    The occasional hot chick pic is great but it quickly spams out and ends up cheapening pinsides look
    .

    #4 8 years ago

    1. pin-up is a great name.

    2. the area (if it is going to exist) should only be visible to registered pinsiders, and maybe a further restriction based on when their account was created and/or karma. if it does exist, it should be called "pin-up."

    3. i've heard that there are other websites on the internet that can supply these types of pictures, so it may not be entirely necessary for pinside to come to the rescue.

    100% agreed. I love the occassional witty pic... just not pics' for the pics' sake.

    #6 8 years ago

    How about "The Magna Room" or "The Magna Lounge" and should be invite only.

    #7 8 years ago

    I don't really see the point of it. Yes it is nice to look at sometimes, but this is a pinball site. There are millions of smut sites to visit, but hardly any pinball sites. Don't ruin a good thing.

    #8 8 years ago

    Yes please add a subforum. Yes please make it invite only. Pin-up sounds like a good name.

    #9 8 years ago

    If this means the regular forum stays / becomes more clean, then I'm all for it.

    agree

    I agree as well. But if it would keep it off the regular sight it could be worth looking into but if its a vote, I'll vote no. Keep as is.

    Just keep it classy though!
    No aftermarket upgrades...
    Only NOS please! (LED's are fine though... )

    The sub-forum would be a great idea Robin!
    Let's keep Pinside in the FASTLANE!

    I will donate to the cause!
    Hey, I bought shirts too awhile back- does that count?

    Edit.... Donated to the cause!

    #14 8 years ago

    I am never bothered by the pictures. Heck, someone could post a pic of a girl naked and spread eagle on top of a TZ and I wouldn't mind. That being said, this forum does have to appeal to a wide group of people, and if some of our members are offended by it, I'm all for a sub-forum. I was the one who originally suggested that we have an OT/adult area where the posts don't show up under "Latest Discussions". In my eyes, this is a perfect compromise.

    #15 8 years ago

    Personally I've never seen photos on here that I would consider over the line. But maybe they have been deleted before I saw them( dam).
    I think most of us can have fun without crossing the line. But when we do that there is always the chance the line could be crossed. It's up to You Robin. It's your site and your reputation. You do what you want and if people like it they will follow.....It's worked so far. This is a great place. Use your best judgement. Asking in here if we should have an Adult section is like asking hungry dogs if they would like some steak.
    We don't need a seperate room for Adults, What we need is a seperate room for children

    #16 8 years ago

    I am in no way against porn but I don't think it should be on this forum at all. But if you are gonna let it happen then if a sub forum keeps your server going then it needs to be done.

    #17 8 years ago

    Sounds like a reasonable idea, and reasonable request on keeping the adult related
    pics off the main forum area. As a member here I understand why it might be needed
    for people at work, or home with children near the pc. I personally don't need those
    accomodations but it's nice that you'd go the extra mile for people here that do.

    #18 8 years ago

    I agree with the clubbing of seals. Hot girls are great, but there are 1.876billion other sites out there for that kinda stuff already. Keep it pinball...

    #19 8 years ago

    I'm not into any pinball-porn crap, the way I look at it the net is full of porn already and will only attract creeps who want a chance to speak up on it and will overflow to other topics not in the 'den'. Also any female members may be sure to leave- just saying

    Although it may sound nifty at first I would expect every troll with a hard on will join the site and cause trouble - look you cats want to try it out? fine then you patrol/mod it
    When these new guys come in and start ripping on your hobby and posting mind blowing crap then you are going to have to sleep with it. I'm not going to watch/mod it I just dont have the time I'm only here for pinball .
    Hey I'm tolerant but if this is your art then you have to stand behind it simple as that, make sure this is the path you want your site to take and the kind of fellow members you want to hang with.
    -OK I'm off my soap box now

    Autumn does make a point.
    We might just be playing with fire here...
    I am fine with the current state of things. So far I think we have a good mix already with the current members.
    I could see how it could easily spiral out of control with a free-for-all.
    So- I am cool with it staying pinball only! (peppered/tapatio-ed with some mild skin. )
    You don't have to change things to keep me happy.
    You do a fantastic job already Robin! Keep up the stellar work!!!
    Thanks for having us and this site!

    Quoted from jrrdw:

    HMMMM Why would we want that? Are there people you want to exclude? Maybe "people like me"? I sure hope not. Maybe I'm taking this the wrong way.

    Yaknow People who tell bad jokes.
    Or post pics of thier pinball machine.
    And talk pinball.
    Is that it? Is that who we want to exclude?
    Or maybe it's something else.....Hmmmm
    I just don't know what that could be. Maybe you can tell us.
    but you may be surprised at how many "people like me" are on here.

    #22 8 years ago

    we all love pinball and this is a pinball site,I think we should keep it that way.Good luck with this 1 robin.This is still the best Pinball site around,every body here trys to help every body else without the bickering of other sites that are out there. Now on to PINBALL !!! Happy 4th of July to all.

    #23 8 years ago

    Personally I'm not worried but if it isn't pinball related and puts other pinball people off using the site, then ditch it unless you can put a clear opt in or opt out element as part for the site.
    Like someone else said there are plenty of other porn sides on the web. There is only one Pinside!

    #24 8 years ago
    Quoted from wesperron:

    HMMMM Why would we want that?

    Because I'm into babes, and more into pinball babes and I don't like it when you complain about the threads getting turned into smut, or what ever it was you called it. You see Wes, to me it's just part of MY manhood. I like women there for really really enjoy seeing them naked or as naked as the forum rules will allow, particularly stretched out across a really really nice pinball machine. Some don't like to see it, I do. If I can get a one stop shop, all the better.

    Quoted from wesperron:

    but you may be surprised at how many "people like me" are on here.

    Right back at ya!

    #25 8 years ago

    Ok, I just wanted to make sure I understood. And from what you wrote I can see I did understand perfectly.

    So I think it's safe to say this is not about complaining, or a misunderstood joke. ...it's about something else, like I thought.

    I'm with Wes on this,It's Robins call,Tastefully done I like,Smutty nasty can be found all over the place,am here for pinball and some ribbing and an occasional hottie is alright too.
    Maybe Pinside after hours on Fridays & Saturdays.

    Quoted from wesperron:

    WES! It's what I said it is about, you complaining. Did you bother to read what I posted? If you had, you would have seen that. Keep up.

    Quoted from wesperron:

    it's about something else, like I thought.

    After reading your reply, you obviously think it's something else. What's on your mind about it? Do I even want to know???

    #28 8 years ago

    Well. first off. I wasn't complaining. I think that is clear to everyone on here.
    So how can this be about me complaining. Can you show me where I was complaining? I've never complained about anything since I've been on this site....So I know it can't be about that.

    Is there anyone on here who thinks I'm a complainer? Let me here it. I can take it.

    #29 8 years ago

    Hey, knock it off you two. You are both cool dudes. You just don't get along, but hey that's life sometimes. And no Wes, I don't think you are a complainer.

    Thanks for the insights so far. Time for me to write my own opinion.

    The Pinside is a site about pinball. Build and maintained (when time permits) by yours truly. This means I'm also responsible for its contents and even though I'm hiding way east across a rather big ocean, the fact of the matter is that I will be held accountable for what's being posted.

    Up until now we've done quite well. I have hardly done any moderating, only seen two cease and desist letters from lawyers and the Pinside has never been sued

    The forum is the living part of the site and I'm very happy with all the pinballheads participating, helping others out, sharing knowledge. That's what it was built for! The non-pinball-related posts and slightly drunk posts are often fun reads too.

    If you ask me however, nude photos do not belong on the Pinside forum. Even though the girls pictured are posing with pinball machines, this has little to do with the game of pinball. Plus these pics are just not suitable for a public forum. I've had countless e-mails from people who did not like being confronted with this. It's cool that some of you grew up with parents like Gaylord Focker but not everyone did.

    So I thought maybe a hidden sub-forum for this stuff would be a solution for keeping the rest of the site clean. But who determines who gets access to that forum? I really don't have the time for that. Plus, and Hellodeadcity raises a good point there, I really don't want to moderate such a forum. But I would have to because it's my site and I'm responsible for it. And last but not least, I'm worried this section will become real popular (highly likely with the current state of the internet) and eat up a lot of bandwidth and disk space.

    Along with the comments above, I'm strongly leaning towards a "no".

    #30 8 years ago
    Quoted from wesperron:

    Can you show me where I was complaining? I've never complained about anything since I've been on this site....

    In the Easter thread and another that I can't remember the title of. You where complaining how Brokedad and Nimblepin could smut up a Easter thread. Along the same lines in the other thread. So yea you did complain. You still haven't said what else you thought I was talking about.

    #31 8 years ago

    No is fine,I felt more fulfilled posting and explaining to Gorilla about his HSII last night,I did participate in the other hijinks,but thats not why I visit this site.Some ribbing,seeing other peoples projects and trying to help sometimes, keeps me here,Now cheers on the 4th of July.

    #32 8 years ago

    I say " NO " also.. Yr right !! It's a Pinball Forum ,but , if a Hottie Pop's up ever now and Then,, Kool !! PG- 21 .. Let the Smut stay at Redtube.com .. Redtube,, What's redtube ? LOL

    #33 8 years ago

    Well perhaps once members donate $ a badge will get them in and keep lurkers/visitors/ minors out?

    I don't think it's fair that Robin has to shoulder the site costs/fees /legal crap while everyone else can play pornside for free posting photos and links - not cool!

    I remember around Easter a member who I'm not going to snitch on had a link that I knocked down, the photo of two hot goth ladies next to a pin was cool but the thumbs next to it 1) a women with a vodka bottle shoved way up her ___, and the other 2) a blonde chick with a __ shoved down her throat in tears was not cool for the under 18 members.
    If this member would of just posted the pic of the 2 goth women playing pinball without the thumbs of the other xxx all would of been fine.

    Quoted from robin:

    And no Wes, I don't think you are a complainer.

    thank you

    #35 8 years ago

    I say stick a pin in this thing. Originally it sounded like a reasonable idea, but now it seems to have become blown out of proportion. Lets get back to pinball!

    #36 8 years ago
    Quoted from jarjarisgod:

    I say stick a pin in this thing

    Yea it's a good idea to lock this before I state another fact like some of us man up to what we post and others don't!

    #37 8 years ago

    I see no problem with the occasional well-timed cleavage pic but to each their own I guess.

    #38 8 years ago
    Quoted from jarjarisgod:

    Yea, I've said through and through within the rules and that does put limits on it. So far I haven't seen anyone asking for porno, but it sure seems to me it got turned into that.

    #39 8 years ago

    Are there people you want to exclude? Maybe "people like me"?

    You are always welcome anytime Wes!

    I see no problem with the occasional well-timed cleavage pic

    So I was playing TAF the other day...

    .................

    What was I saying again!?!?

    Oh yeah- TAF!

    #40 8 years ago

    There are few things in life as awe inspiring as Salma Hayek's cleavage. Speaking of that... I just so happen to have a Desperado DVD hanging around here. Hmmm...

    #41 8 years ago

    I have only been on the site for a few months so I don't know if this member squabble is unprecedented but, I really like all of the people involved so it would be great if we could agree to disagree somehow and get back to the love of our games and friendship.

    Do I like the "boob" shots? I suppose deep down I probably do.
    Am I glad that my wife and kids don't participate here? Yeah, I wouldn't want them seeing some of the pictures.
    Can I edit it all out in my own mind and skip to the part I DO care about? Sure, I am here for the camaraderie, repair advice, game comparisons, room ideas and the humor is great, too.

    Let's move on ASAP. Again, as far as I can see, ALL of the people who are getting their hide up over this are well respected, intelligent, humorous valued members. EACH of you is important here in your own way. Let's get past this guys.

    My wife reads my posts- as well as ALL of our posts while at work.
    She thinks our antics are hilarious...
    I believe her words were: "90210"-"Degrassi(Old)"-"Swans Crossing" and High School all rolled into one..!"
    She said we should have our own show!
    After today,
    I would agree very much!

    She just wishes I was on this (Pinside) less...
    Ohpf- She just flashed me!
    Gotta go!!

    #44 8 years ago

    Anything related to a Hayek rack and/or Eva Mendes should be allowed on this site......just my two cents

    #45 8 years ago

    Wow, I get called out and answer the call, get ask to proove my post and I do so. I then ask a question and it don't get answered and I'm expected to just let it slide like nothing happened. Wow!

    Quoted from wesperron:

    Is there anyone on here who thinks I'm a complainer?

    Yes me, I think you are!

    Quoted from jrrdw:

    You still haven't said what else you thought I was talking about

    Man up wes! You accuse me of doing what? Why wont you answer? If I'm thinking of something other then what I posted, What is it I'm thinking since you stated you know it's something else.

    Quoted from wesperron:

    Well. first off. I wasn't complaining. I think that is clear to everyone on here.
    So how can this be about me complaining. Can you show me where I was complaining? I've never complained about anything since I've been on this site....So I know it can't be about that.

    Is there anyone on here who thinks I'm a complainer? Let me here it. I can take it.

    The only reason for the existence of that god awful movie "The Spirit" is a 1 second (or so) long shot of Eva Mendes' ass. Almost made the other 2 hours bearable... Almost.

    #47 8 years ago

    When I'm on this site I'd rather look at shop out pics of pins (loved the demo man today) or pin collections than pics of girls. I love girls but I'm here for the pinball. I'd hate to scare anyone away for any reason when they come here with a possible interest in pinball.

    #48 8 years ago

    jrrdw,
    you gotta chill man. Wes's posts were "sarcastic" and he has never truthfully complained about ANYTHING as far as I know. The comment about the "smut" in the other section was in jest, and if you're mad because broke-dad left because of Wes, then you need to talk to BD... he's the one that blew his top.

    we should just all forgot about this drama BD has started and move on... furthermore, I should just change my vote to "I dont care".. because I really dont care.

    #50 8 years ago

    Wow, I was away for a few days and come home to see all of this...

    My 2 cents is to keep it pinball and frankly delete these past few threads relating to this subject all together. I registered to pinside not pornside. Just my thoughts though. I respect everyones opinion.
