What is the policy on NSFW threads in groups?

Like I have one in my group but I've been deleting anything that's actual nudity. What is the actual policy on this? Are there things that are acceptable? Or should I just nuke the thread now?

  • OP's question has been answered and it looks like this discussion is straying. If you want to start a separate thread to truly delve into what the forum rules/CoC/ToU mean as to profane/vulgar/obscene/NSFW content, feel free to make a new thread about it. Thanks.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Arbiter 739 There was once a Mythic group that consisted of -blam!-ography. One day [url=http://www.bungie.net/Account/Profile.aspx?memberID=1]Achronos[/url] destroyed it. The end. [/quote]I think the instance you're referring to was a a single thread, not a group, and Achronos deleted just the thread. He has, however, deleted other private groups that were solely dedicated to NSFW content. OP, it's a good question. In general, NSFW links are still prohibited even in private groups. Grown-up discussions about adults-only topics are generally viewed with a bit more leniency. If you want to be safe, avoid the gray areas.

It's also highly unlikely that anyone who can do anything will find it. I still think there are much better ways of storing -blam!-ography than this site. [Edited on 12.02.2012 4:55 PM PST]
