Ahhh, just back from a 24-hour Posting Privileges Suspension. Good to be here. Anyway, I had my posting privileges suspended for posting "gratuitous nudity" in a thread.

The offensive photo was an image from BGG's very own database. I didn't upload a filthy pornographic image to my own gallery and post it in the thread. I used an image from the BGG database.

To recap the story so far: I lost my posting privileges for posting an image that exists in the database which can be viewed by anyone at anytime.

I'd post the image here but I'd risk being suspended again or being permanently banned from the site. That's right I could get kicked of the site for posting an image in a thread that is in the BGG database.

I have to see the image before I can comment.

I don't see it was in the database as much of a defense. Clearly BGG should clean up the database but just as clearly you are responsible for what you post and if it in inappropriate then it is inappropriate. The punishment sounds harsh.

Can you post the ID, they couldn't punish you for that?

For reference, the image was from a game which contains cards consisting of explicit nude photographs. The image was posted in a General forum as part of a "get it off your chest" pun and otherwise unrelated to the topic of the thread. This was deemed as gratuitous nudity, which is prohibited by the forum rules.

As for the penalty, site policy is to issue a warning on a first forum offense and suspensions of increasing length on subsequent violations.

It is - though it wasn't the images currently in the thread that were deemed too much. The offending image has been edited out of the post (which is currently collapsed due to the number of flags it received while the image was still there).

Must we be so circumspect, though? While the image may have been unrelated to the topic of that thread, it most certainly is related to the topic of this one. So let's see it.

Damn - missed it again.

Can someone give advance warning of these tye of violations please - a sort of reverse red flag.
Something along the lines of " Warning - gratuitous nudity coming shortly ".

That would suit me fine thanks.

In short this is a casualty of the ongoing feud between the Agricolians and the Puerto Ricans for dominance in the BGG universe. How many more people have to suffer before this horrible war comes to an end.

This is the photo in question:

DO NOT CLICK THE LINK IF YOU ARE OFFENDED BY NUDITY

I thought the penalty was a bit harsh but now I remember that I was given a warning once before. Not for a gratuitous nudity offense but for calling someone a ******. Well, not exactly calling him one but for posting this picture:


Hey, the guy started a thread to beg for geek gold! He deserved it!

How is not being able to post for 24 hours a harsh penalty?

Because I was unable to continue my gratuitous nudity posting frenzy. I was just getting started!

In reality, I spent the rest of the day working on our 1st floor bathroom anyway (which I started tearing apart a year ago shake ).

Are you sure your wife didn't slip Octavian a few bucks on the side?

I'm guessing it's boobies from Busen Memo.

Edit: Nate posted the link in the meantime. I was right.

Answer: As many as possible. Members of the military/industrial (game) complex require it. War is profit.

The question is: has the image been removed from the database to prevent future users from inadvertently posting it somewhere, not knowing what they're up to?

Setting aside the fact that it is/was in the db before: you made it public (again) to an audience who probably didn't know it before, and even if it might have suited the topic, the rules did not allow that. Cold hard fact.

It's probably also a "perceived" american thingy (?), where pictures of boobs are more evil than pictures of violence (looking at movies/TV and computer games, for example)?! I mean, here in Germany I just have to watch TV for some hours - even during day time - and can see more naked women, men and exposed breasts than at some beach in summer.

I completely agree, though, that too much exposure of that kind shown on this "family friendly" site may have a negative effect, as there are also many underage users and readers. So the admins have to act.

A geekmail warning and the removal of that picture would have sufficed totally, imho. So, as a consequence, I suggest: take down that image from the database, dear admins, as this will happen again in the future. Someone will find it and post it. One who did not read this thread.


Just my 2 cents....

So, as an image of the game it is not gratuitous, while posted as a pun it is gratuitous.

Does that mean the image can be posted in this thread as it is an illustration of the topic at hand and therefore not gratuitous?

You had to spend a day in the bathroom because you have a potty mouth? Karmariffic!

To avoid this nudity gratuity and consequent reprimand in the future, as a public service I've uploaded a censored version of that scandalous game image:
