Lucifur Posted September 4, 2006 Share Posted September 4, 2006 Was reading through the CoC, and a few things don't seem to make sense.. specifically: 1) (A very minor nitpick) "iii: Pictures directly on The Fur Den forums. We have limited bandwidth with our provider, and pictures eat up bandwidth quickly." Are you saying that the board software actually retrieves the picture linked, stores it on the server, then serves it to the person viewing? This is the only way it could possibly eat up your bandwidth. The way html works is that the board script sends the image's URL to the person viewing it, and instructs that person's browser to download and display the image... there is no bandwidth hit on your server at all, unless I'm seriously missing the point here. 2) All the "XXX Verboten" stuff. I'm not agreeing nor disagreeing with your stance on it, but I am curious as to why... is your hosting company that prudish? This site is, by its very nature, an adults-only site. I would wager a guess that the majority of denizens here have a sexual, fetishistic connection with fur. This involves the pursuit of images, videos, etc., and I get quite frustrated when I excitedly open a link promising 'hot woman in fox fur' only to find it deleted because someone deemed it 'too dirty' or whatever. I realise also, that by its very nature, this forum is a target from the get-go (peta, alf, etc) but does your host seriously have a zero-tolerance policy? There are thousands of webhosts out there. Just sayin' Please don't read this post the wrong way, I only bring these things up to clear up some things I don't understand about the place. I think in general the admins and mods have done a great job here, and I enjoy hanging out, (and you can't beat the price ) but I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that this place is over-moderated.
