The store works by different rules, evidently. The forum TOS says no bare buttocks, but have you seen the store image of Stephanie 5 Elite Texture Joanie from behind in her thong? Those buttocks look pretty bare to me. It is in the store promo, but I doubt we could post the same render here in the forum.

I kind of feel sorry for Richard, having to enforce the forum TOS, when the DAZ store doesn’t abide by the same rules. And granting that Severed Man exception in the forum was a really poor idea. You either have rules and enforce them or you change the rules.  It’s the selective application of the rules that is ticking off the forum members in regard to this issue, I believe.

I think we all accept the TOS and try to abide by it in the forum. I slipped up once, and Richard took down the image. OK. I was sad that my hard work couldn’t be displayed, but I understood why he had to do it. A few days later, when I saw the severed man in the forum, I was aghast, because that was worse that what I had posted, and yet it was allowed and even promoted in the forum.

I don’t consider myself narrowminded, but in all honesty there are def. some images I will not let my kid look at on this website.
And as I do understand that the forum mods need to live by certain rules, it does strike me as strange that the website itself has no warnings whatsoever.
At least on the homepage?

Not that it needs to have it (young kids shouldn’t roam the internets by their own), but a clarified line between site and forum gives a better message out there ^^

I almost forgot!
Is the voting page up yet?
I can’t find it! smile

Yeah. I was appalled by the chopped-up-guy product.  Especially the promo showing him in a pool of blood with a vicious samurai warrior above him.  I don’t care whether it’s in the store or in the forum.  If you’re going to enforce some kind of code to keep the images PG, it has to be across the board.  I’d rather see hundreds of bare buttocks (because, c’mon, we’ve all got them!) than that level of gratuitous violence.  Besides… How could anyone post an image that used that product in the forums??  I mean… how is a severed body part NOT breaking the TOS? 

Now there’s a challenge… Someone post a severed body part render that doesn’t break the TOS and isn’t just severed parts sticking out of clothing…  I’d offer, but there’s no way I’d purchase something that, er, icky.

I hated that I couldn’t get one done for this Totte. Couldn’t even get a DL one done either. Yeah I made one for Jack thread and that has been it since I had more computer woes.

And thanks very much, Totte and the sponsors, for this one - it was great fun as always! grin

So true.

If there isn’t a clear winner in my mind, my approach to the problem of picking a few entries out of so many in these contests has been to download all the images by tag number (or whatever ID works), put them in a folder with sub-folders I can sort into (i.e., best or funniest in this case).  If it can go in more than one, I make a copy with (c<number>) at the end so I know how many categories I have placed it.  When I have gone through ALL the entries I move to the sub-folders and start over with new sub-folders (e.g., Best of the Best, Funniest of the Humorous, etc).  The process goes on until I am down to the number of votes I have.  It’s not a perfect method, but it works for me.  So far I haven’t had to resort to eeny-meeny-miny-moe. wink
 
The best part of my system would probably be watching me do it.  I argue with myself and rant and rave sometimes because, “Damn it, they both should win and I only have ONE vote left!” hehe

Voting is very difficult!

This time I sorted out those I though would get place 1,2 or 3 from me in each cat, then I started to shuffle up/down up/down, removed one, no, I like that one, tore my hair into an even balder haircut. So, I would have needed 10 points in each, but would still make if difficult, so many great ones and funny ones and both.
