.... maybe with some thumbnail warning like other stores.

I have nothing at all against nudity, or gore. My favorite film franchises are Nightmare on Elm Street and Halloween. I don’t want my niece watching them, though, at her age and at this point in time.
Personally, I think nudity and gore should be allowed in the store- there’s a good market for them - if there were a basic filter in place, and a simple “Allowed adult content” option in the Account preferences section. Until then, I can see a no nudity stance being enforced, but for questionable items, such as gore or shock/horror themed items, a small change in the thumbnail is a perfect solution. If you click on a product called Severed Man, you would definitely expect to see a severed man. But that way it keeps the promo thumbnail off of general viewing by just browsing (and may entice others to click on the product link, just too see what the product looks like, generating further traffic and interest. Nothing screams click me like a censored tag)

I never would have thought, that the presentation of nudity and brutality in art would be explained with political circumstances ...

There’s a term for it…and it begins with PC…Political Correctness…it’s what you get when you let lawyers and politicians do your thinking.

Seems as if I can be very thankful to be grown up in a place and family, where these things never played a role grin !

It’s only humans.

It’s not like they’re cutting up Cows or showing Naked Cows in suggestive situations.

I think both Extreme Gore and Vile Pornography should be normal, and family friendly sites should carry the warnings!

But I respect other people’s rights to set their own incomprehensible standards.

Because of all the complaints about my signature, I edited it to appeal to those of the more delicate sensitivities.
I hope that will put some people at ease a bit.
(for the record though…my 7yr old son has no problems with any of the images and was with me throughout the making of the product…he knows its just art and not real)

well now you are just criticizing my art….that is totally beyond the point.

not that I have to justify my choices…but the texture on the dead guy is my corpse texture from the “Good as dead” set.

Maybe you should add the disclaimer that no polygons were harmed in the making of the product…sorry, I couldn’t resist…

if Gore is accepted here, maybe I must change to “Gore Hitomi with big boobs” and have the best [??] of two worlds?
now I can understand why Smay’s Nata for Genesis had the same exposure like the Halley Comet.

what if…Genesis Kids “gorenized”?, is “gorenized” a real verb?, don’t know and I don’t care, but you get the point, right?

edit: is Smay, not 3D Universe the creator of Nata, sorry! raspberry

I like the promo with M5 as the Venus de Milo.  I’ll have to get this just to poke fun at couple of my old Fine Arts profs.

There’s lots of things I don’t like, both in real-life and also with 3D art.  If I see something I don’t like what I tend to do is ignore it.  Works for me.

Quite ironic that the promo image with the female statue has the “bits” covered…

That’s fine. My daughter is also 7 and sometimes browses this site with me. Although she would know that it’s only art I still prefer her not to see that.

And just so you can understand my partner was born and raised in Sierra Leone, West Africa where he witnessed such acts in real life during their civil war. Sometimes art is far to close to reality especially when you witness such real horrors being committed against your sisters and father and came within a hairs length of having it done to you.

A persons view point on such an image should never be discounted as you simply don’t know the reason why they would find it hard to be confronted by it.

Interesting pictures.

What I find disturbing is not the content after all violent films are in almost every home, but the fact that there is not even a try at providing some sort of content filter so that you have to click on a warning link before looking.

Over and over we hear how DAZ is a family site blah blah and so certain things are not allowed blah blah.

And even in their own forum TOS it says this …

1.) Posts, threads, and images MUST NOT contain ANY nudity, violence, or profanity as we do not currently have flags available so that other members may filter these things out when visiting the forum.

Yet apparently vendors are allowed to show pictures of violence.

Seems to me there is a double standard here.

We all know there is a huge market in violence and nudity, it’s what sells, but the whole American idea of nudity is bad but blasting your neighbour to bits is fine has always bemused me.

If DAZ is going to allow things like this to be sold then fine but have the filters in place before you start selling on an open site and start allowing real promos, after all this is the 21st C we don’t pass out at the sight of a nipple or male organs.
