Some folks have wondered about why some art is accepted and some very similar art is not. Please remember that moderators are human, and have moods that vary from day to day and week to week. I try to hold the line in this group to art that is naturist, not just nude (and definitely not porn). That can be a very subjective criteria. Please have patience.

If you have had art rejected recently, please resubmit it. But, in the future, when possible, please remember that what we are looking for is social, mixed-gender, non-sexual nudity (ie. nudism), and not just nudes.

A fellow deviant, :icontwotribalmeowstics: recently had one of his works removed for "displaying underage nudity". There was nothing sexual about it, just innocent childhood naturism. I feel the rest of us are at risk unless we do something. So please show him your support.

Obviously, without seeing the ar itself I can offer no approval of it, but I certainly do feel that nude is not lewd, regardless of age.

Would you take something like this… or this… ?

It's on the edge, but yes, I would.

Can I afford a question? I am quite perplexed. I read the article entitled " Crossed signals, bruised egos " and I fully understand what is said.

Anyway, it's not a question of ego here.

But there is something that I don't understand: can you explain clearly what are the reasons why you reject these photos I've submitted [link] [link] when you accepted these [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] (and so on)?

Thank you for your clarification... :-)

I can think of two reasons:

1) I may not have been the one who accepted those photos. There is more than one moderator here.
2) I am not always consistent. I have realized in retrospect that I have not always applied the same criteria for admitting images.

Part of the inconsistency is due to the passage of time. When we first opened I may have accepted the naked-male-rear-view-no-face-alone photos because I expected that I would eventually balance them with the naked-male-and-naked-female photos. That never happened. All we got were naked-male-rear-view-no-face-alone and naked-female-cheesecake-alone photos. In context, neither of those are really what the group was intended to be.

I realize this may not fit what you are feeling (or even seeing). I admit that I really don't have the time to administer the group very well. Things just didn't work out the way I had hoped.
