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:

n/m=B

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.

And

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.

Wow, I had no idea there was such popularity with the thing. Usually I’m more of a person and place kind of guy, myself. wink

Am I still buzzed on last night’s Martinis, or is this thread actually starting to make sense…?

The thing is, there is no one sized fits all ‘thing.’

Of course, knowing me, I bought the thing, before daz put the thing in it’s monthy sale. so then debated returning the thing, because, you know, it is a few bucks less now with coupon.

Did he jump out or did you have to dump him out?  Or did he do something a mixture of the two?

I’m sooo confused…  I’ve come to grasp a little of the nature of reality and the answer to life, the universe, and everything.  I even have an inkling as to who and what I am. Auuummmmm…
But please, please, who the hell are you?  And why are you trampling my roses?

Werner Heisenberg and Erwin Shrodinger are driving down the highway when they’re pulled over by a cop for speeding. The cop asks Heisenberg if he knows how fast he was going and he replies “No, but I know exactly where I am”. The cop decides to search the vehicle and he opens the trunk to discover a dead cat and he exclaims” Did you know you have a dead cat in here?” and Shrodinger responds “Well I do NOW!”

As a Moderator on these forums I feel it is my duty now that n/m=B has become public knowledge to point out that if a user was to position the thing over the possible TOS violation the resulting render will pass TOS. That said I also point out the use of the other thing for the same reason will still result in a TOS Violation. So always use the thing and not the other thing.
Thank you for complying with the Forum TOS.

Did he jump out or did you have to dump him out?  Or did he do something a mixture of the two?

Well this is where (or possibly when) it gets a little bit confusing, because when (or should that be where?) I opened the box a cat very definitely jumped out, but at the same time I’m certain I saw an identical cat curled up in the bottom of the box but when I checked I could find neither cat so I assumed I must have been hallucinating which I initially put down to too much scotch on my cornflakes (other breakfast serial killers are available).

However on checking later when I woke up for lunch (ale & steak pie, chips [or fries if you must] and a rather nice tequila dip), I found that the cat, which I had thought I had hallucinated but apparently had not, unless I hallucinated that I hallucinated that I saw a single both dead and alive cat turn into two separate vanishing cats, hand left a thing in the bottom of the box which suggests that at least one of the cats was real (or I am certifiable).

But I fear that if I used that thing left (or right) in the box by the cat(s?) to cover a n/m=B TOS violation as Jaderail suggested I would probably be banned from the DAZ site for life (or for some other value of ‘soon’), I would also expect a similar result at any other but the most specialised of websites.

Now time to check on my dinner, gammon & scrumpy with a rather nice apple brandy sauce.

I think I see theme developing here.

I only seem to post when I’m cooking smile

BAG! BAG I tell you, ........ the thing is Cats MUST be kept in a BAG!, therefore it can then be called the “Letting the cat out of the bag”,  thing…
Judicious placement of said cat (once ‘let out of the bag’) may be a substitute for ‘the thing’,  thus preventing possible infringement of the aforesaid TOS!
This also alleviates the worry of choosing the correct ‘thing’ and not ‘the other thing’! surprised
A word of caution however, ... ensure said cat is of a more ‘mellow’ temperament, or has had attention paid to its claws before placement! grrr

No, cats definitely naturally occur in boxes, not bags. See two (I think it’s 2, but it could be one quantum cat of unknown state) cats in a box, freshly delivered from ‘Cats 4 You’

This is actually Lola & Sparkie, our two cats, who have a bit of a thing for boxes, they spent most of the night in this particular box, then lost all interest a couple of days later, it does make unpacking anything an interesting experience in our house
