Honestly, an a$$ doesn't bother me, some of the avatars people make push the limit a tinch... but for me that's mostly because while at work, I absolutely have to scroll FAST past anybody with one of those avatars, and if my boss happens to walk by with some obvious nudity, it looks bad on me...

imo

Goose I believe that the pics of girls in thongs stayed and were fine it was the pic of the girl with nothing on that was asked to be taken down or edited. When posting pics try to include ones with clothes on. Also the male a$$ was black boxed due to his total lack of clothing. Also BRBD's girls in thongs with the extreme close up were removed due to the fact that they included extreme closes ups of banna hamocks.

i vote G rated also, it will end all controversy

pauligan, if you told your boss you were surfing the internet in general, would he/she say cool, go for it

or are u doing it "incognito" and the pics give you away

think of all the money your company loses cause of your downtime on the internet

No doubt that PG-13 rating is up to interpretation. Nobody is going to take the time to outline exactly what is an what isn't allowed on this site.

Keep these things in mind...
- We maintain that we want this to be a family friendly site.
- We don't want people busted at work because as they are scrolling through the forum, an arguably offensive picture appears just as the boss is walking in.
- This is a boating related site, not a softcore porn site!

Bottom line, it takes common sense and a small amount of good judgment to figure out what's appropriate for a site like this. Anybody who's been around for some time, should be familiar with where we stand on this.

If you can't participate in the discussions without posting half naked pictures, maybe you need to find a different website, or professional help! <_<

it's cool that you posted what the national film board rates as G, PG, blah blah blah.

but this is the LSCN board, and you can consider the captains of LSCN the 'national film board' here. what they say goes. so.......
Rule #1
We live by our words on-line, so we don't allow obscene, racist or sexually explicit language, images, or photos. Keep in mind this is a PG13 site. We reserve the right to remove postings that defame or insult anyone, are abusive or hateful, or are derogatory. Any harassing notes or posts that could be construed as stalking will be removed and made available to the proper law enforcement officials. We also reserve the right to remove notes that are off the subject or not in English. Additionally, if at least two complaints specific to certain content arise, we will take the content down, out of respect to the members on this site.

and

Rule #5
When posting photos or images, keep in mind that this is a PG-13 site. The images should not show any more than you would see on your regular network TV. One important reason for this is that many people visit this site from their place of work, during breaks. We do not want anybody getting in trouble because somebody saw inappropriate pictures on their screen, while visiting our site. If you are unsure, just post a link to the image, and a warning.
This applies to avatars as well! LSCN reserves the right to remove change your avatar for you, if it is not appropriate.

so there ya go!
if you post something that gets a flag, then say 'hey! ok, no biggie.' it obviously offended someone, so again, no biggie. we're all trying to live peacefully under one web.

I'm still confused also about the PG-13 rating in the LSCN. Goose put down a clear description of what in reality a PG-13 rating is. Maybe the rules should change to a G or even PG rating. I don't know. I'll just go with the flow like I always do.

it's simple:
do what you think is right. if it isn't, the LSCN moderators will tell you otherwise. that's why they're there.
not a big deal as long as one doesn't make it a big deal, and that's where the problems always lie: when someone gets offended because of something they have posted is censored or removed. it's no big deal, really.

we're all adults. where as in a pg13 movie that is constanly moving, and a butt crack flash is just that: a flash, a picture posted here is stuck, so to speak.

so, clearly speaking: use your judgement in posting material. if it's questionable, mods or capts will let you know it is and why. don't get offended... you didn't know and we're just doing the clean up.

Actually it's not that simple when you look at the LSCN version of PG-13 and then the reality of the PG-13 rating.
It realy doesn't matter that much though. Like I said - I'll just go with the flow. Enough about that - I have a question.

I'm gonna change gears for a sec:
How come my avatar doesn't bounce on my home computer but it does on others? Also, Laurie and I tried that Budweiser thing but nothin' would come up. Do I need to change some settings in my computer or download something in order to get it to work? I'm confused with this one. Please help my non-bouncin' boobs!!
LOL!!! Is the avatar PG-13 when they are bouncin' and PG when they are not? Just curious!

Exactly.....It doesn't matter what another website deams PG-13 appropriate it matters what the LSCN moderators deam as PG-13 appropriate. It's that simple, live by their rules. The extended controversy on this subject is ridiculous. Just do it, don't agrue. It seems people think they are going to get the moderators to break down and give into them, but I don't feel that will happen or should happen. Get on with life! You could be posting happy threads right now...

No offense or anything Boss but if you want this thread and topic to end just stop commenting on it. If you continue to comment on something you don't want to talk about - it will never go away.
As for "It's that simple..." I know for a fact that it is not that simple. I for one, know exactly what the laws on most topics are. If I don't know I will find out. That is what I do for a living 24/7. The owners of this site have complete and total control of this site. What they want to do with it is there business. They decide who they want to help run this site. So trust me when I say "just let it go" and "go with the flow". So let's now move on to another subject.

Why even use the PG-13, G, or whatever terms. How about...The owners of the site have chosen certain people, called moderators, to use their judgement based on the rules listed. It is all about interpretation, and the moderators are the chosen ones to interpret.

....I do take offense. There are many others who state their opinion against this campaign, even those who run this board, and ask these people to stop but they STILL continue. I shouldn't have to stop visiting this board to get away from all of the negativity. If I decide not to add a reply in this thread does not mean it will end. It never should have started to begin with...
