Have the administrators ever considered making a NSFW sub-section of Jazzfanz?

    I typically have no problems with the strict regulation regarding what can and cannot be posted here on Jazzfanz, as far as appropriateness goes. However, there seem to be some very vocal critics, exclaiming that Jazzfanz is "too strict", and that the censorship is too harsh.

    In order to appeal to the side of the moderators, which want to keep this forum as family-friendly as possible, and some posters, who feel like some of the content that is of some communicational-worth shouldn't be censored, why not create a NSFW sub-section of the forum? Now, I have visited other forums, and some of them tend to be quite inappropriate. So maybe the admins can place a restriction on accessing this part of the forum, by letting only members of Jazzfanz accessing this sub-forum (should be called the Locker Room, imo). Seeing as Im the youngest board member at 18 hers of age, I don't think having like a disclaimer upon entering the sub-forum should be necessary, but that would be up to the discretion of Jason and colton.

    Has this idea ever been considered? It is just simply something I have been thinking about, and Im quite curious as to what some of the reasons for this die being unfeasible, are.

    Thoughts?

    Premium members can have their own forum, which can be password protected, and which they alone are moderators for. I think the only thing Jason won't allow in them is porn.

    I could be mistaken, but I think the profanity filter still applies in private forums. otherwise, I think it's pretty much up to the individual "owner" of the private forum to set the rules and enforce them. In part they can do this by restricting who's allowed to post in their forum.

    Correct on all of the above.

    Oh and the community is open to those 13-years of age or older which is another reason we are the way we are.

    As much as I like to be crude and vulger, I like the filters on this site. I read a few others here and there, and seeing the same ol' "F-You" responses really gets tiresome. This site makes you think of niftier insults and ways around corners. I like it.
