Hi Fanpoppers. It's been a while since I've 发布 an 文章 in the 潮流粉丝俱乐部 Club, but I wanted to let all of 你 know about a 最近的 problem we've run into and see if we could implore 你 - the awesome 潮流粉丝俱乐部 community - to help us out

(I know, I know, I'm sure many of 你 are thinking only one problem? There's a LOT of problems on Fanpop, Papa! A LOT!!! Alas, for today, we're only going to focus on one problem!)

As 你 know, 潮流粉丝俱乐部 is 首页 to a lot of 俱乐部 covering a wide range of topics and interests and within those 俱乐部 there's a great amount of latitude 给 to what kind of content 你 can post.

However, one type of content that has proven increasingly problematic for us is the posting of explicit 或者 pornographic content on Fanpop.

Per the terms of service:
"You may not post content that...is pornographic 或者 sexually explicit in nature..."

Since that definition might be a little ambiguous to some, allow me to elucidate (I apologize for being so blunt, but I want to be very clear): no exposed breasts 或者 genitals, no butt cracks 或者 full-cheeked buttocks, no explicit sex acts of any sort in which any of the former (genitals, breasts, etc.) are 展示 或者 engaged in...stuff. Two dudes hugging is ok. Two dudes hugging completely naked with their "junk" flopping around is not ok. Got it?

And as ridiculous as it sounds to say, this goes for real life 照片 as well as for cartoons. Specifically: no cartoon 动物 with genitals 或者 cartoon 动物 engaged in sex acts (sadly we have been witness to My Little 小马 doing improper activities with her 小马 "friends" on this site). If 你 want to celebrate your 爱情 of explicit 粉丝 art of randy woodland creatures we, unfortunately, have to ask 你 to find another fansite on which to engage with your fellow fans.

In the interest of erring on the side of caution, I would also advise against chest shots (even if covered), crotch shots, and 照片 with see-through materials that expose breasts and genitals. So-called under-boob, side-boob and "upskirt" type 图片 also fall into this category.

The reasons we are asking for your help in policing and reporting this type of content is two-fold:
FIRST: We have a lot of people under the age of 18 on the website! While everyone needs to be smart about their web-surfing habits and while we don't want to over-sanitize the web experience on Fanpop, it's also reasonable to expect when visiting the "Penguins of Madagascar" Club that 你 will find, at worst, PG type content about those wise-cracking Dreamworks penguins. Nobody needs to see Skipper, Kowalski and Rico getting it on in a menage-a-penguin on the ice. At least not on this site.

SECONDLY: Problematic content isn't only a problem for us, it's a problem for our advertisers. 潮流粉丝俱乐部 isn't cheap to maintain and operate. When we started the site back in 2006 we had maybe a thousand users visit us in the first month. Today we have over 25 million unique visitors to the site every 月 viewing over a 160 million pages a month. To support this high volume of web traffic we have had to purchase bigger, better and faster machines and 更多 and 更多 bandwidth. Running the site is not cheap. If advertisers are unhappy with explicit content on Fanpop, it means no money to operate and continue Fanpop. We 爱情 Fanpop. We hope 你 爱情 Fanpop. We'd like to keep 潮流粉丝俱乐部 running as long as possible!

由 now 你 are probably asking: "So Papa, now that you've told me all about Penguins and My Little Pony, what can we do to help?" All we are asking is that, where possible, please pitch in a hand and help us clean up 潮流粉丝俱乐部 going 前锋, 期待 由 reporting any problematic content 你 might encounter. It doesn't take much time and is easy to do.

Here are a few things that would help us:

See a pornographic image? 报道 it as "inappropriate"

Feel free to remind other users about the pornography policy on 潮流粉丝俱乐部 in comments, private messages, 论坛 and 墙 posts

See a pornographic club? 报道 it as "inappropriate"

See a naughty 照片 in a 论坛 thread? 报道 it!

See a humanoid cartoon character with a tentacled sea creature doing things they never taught 你 in sex ed? Please 报道 it!

See a pony, with a 企鹅 and a...well 你 get the point...

Thanks for taking the time to read this Fanpoppers. Any help 你 can give us in helping to clean up the site is much appreciated. Keep on Fanpopping!
