Artistic nudity.... What do I do?

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Selenite, Oct 2, 2011.

  1. Hello once again.
    Some hours ago I just started a new group called 'The Art Fanatics', given the fact that I couldn't find an art-related group.
    There is almost no content in there, since it's new.

    Then, I thought: Nude is quite common in art. Some images may be offensive to some users; I'm not talking just about nudity. Although my idea was to talk about a bit of absolutely everything, and I would not post an image I consider offensive, I know that someone else might not like to see what I'm showing. Or the other way around.

    In short: the group is public.
    What should I do?

    -Nothing, just leave like it is, everybody is pretty much responsible for oneself;
    or
    -Forbid and report any sort of 'strong' content (which I don't want to);
    or
    -Put some sort of warning/notice for anyone willing to join the group. Pretty much like the Smutclub;
    or
    -Else?


    Many Thanks in advance.
     
  2. When sharing a piece that contains nudity, I would put in a warning when doing so. Do something along the lines of this in your post(s):

    Warning: Contains nudity (open)

    Or, in the discussion thread itself, put a warning after the title. This is a form of art, so I don't believe it should have to be forbidden. :] Part of appreciating art, is appreciating the magnificence of human anatomy. As an art appreciator and art history fan, I understand.

    I hope I was able to help you out. Also, we do have an art group: http://space-kitten.org/iwaku/group.php?groupid=75
    However, it's inactive... So perhaps it's a good thing you've made a new one.

    EDIT: Oh, and no nude photos of people are allowed here. I'm sure I don't need to tell you that pornography and the like are forbidden, but it's something worth mentioning in your group. Even the Smut Club has this rule;

    So, drawings and sculptures only. ;]
     
  3. Of course no pornographyand no nude photos .

    Thanks for the answer! It was very helpful indeed!
    And it's true... I did not notice that group.

    So, anyway, thanks again.
     
  4. Yeah, we have a "no nudie real life people", because that could get us in all kinds of troubles. XD But nude art with proper warnings is allowed. Miss Fluffy explained it beautifully.
