What does n/m mean?
It actually represents a basic DAZ specific formula but is unfortunately incomplete, in full it is:
n/m=B (n divided by m equals B)
It is used to moderate images posted to the DAZ forums or galleries in line with the TOS that apply here at DAZ with regards to exposed female breasts and is commonly referred to as the Nip-Slip Algorithm (or NSA, & I can’t begin to tell you the confusion and fun that particular acronym has caused in the US, no really I can’t tell you otherwise they’ll come and take me away again).
For those of you interested in the details please read on:
Where n is a proportional measurement of breast exposure (measured in nipples, the SI unit for breast exposure) it covers a range of zero to two, with 0 being completely covered and 2 representing a full double exposure.
Where m represents the size of the breast or mammaries (measured in hand-fulls [referenced to the International Prototype Hand’ currently held at the Institute of Naughty Measurements in Amsterdam], the SI unit for mammary gland size). Where 0 equal ‘ironing-board’ and any measurement greater than 5 equals ‘Unable to Remain Upright’.
B represents your chance of being Banned from the site (measured in Smutts, the Si unit for Filth) where anything less than 0.15 Smutts means you are OK and anything over 0.25 Smutts means you are out of here. Between these two figure then your fate depends upon the findings of the DAZ Investigatory Panel for Smut, Titillation, Inappropriateness & X-ratedness (or DIPSTIX).
This method has been in use since the launch of the new site and replaced the older and somewhat more inaccurate ‘Angle of the Dangle’ method previously used. Unfortunately the full definition of how this method worked is in violation of the TOS so I can’t explain it here.
Of course exposure of a ‘thing’ equals 1 whole Smutt and that means your feet won’t even touch the floor as you find yourself heading for the virtual door of the DAZ site.
Now I’m back to my shopping before they ban me for letting Schrödinger’s Cat out of the Box.
