Please forgive me if this has been asked and answered already.  I tried using the Search function several times but every time I got an error and it said "Unable to access the search deamon."

I was wondering if it would be allowed to post a picture of a scrapbook page if one of the quotations in the journalling has profanity in it?  Specifically the "S" word.  If not I'll black bar it.

Hi and welcome to Craftsters!  I saw your other introduction post... sounds like you have a fun job!! 
As for the "profanity" question... I have seen "words" used in the past but I really think it would be great if you posted it and used the "black bar" as you suggested.  It's not like we wouldn't know what it said or that the kids on here are being "protected" from much but I think it's a very respectful thing to do.  I look forward to seeing your craftiness!!
Merry Christmas!

There isn't a profanity rule but
When it comes to posting something like that (containing profanity, or nudity, etc.), your best bet is to put "TOPIC TITLE (Adult Content)" in the subject line- that way you don't have to edit your project photo and everyone can see it for what it truly is Smiley

Kids know to stay out... whether they listen or not, that's another story! lol

I like jMi's suggestion best.  You could even clarify more in the topic:  "Mild Profanity," etc... 

Personally, I hate the black bars, b/c it always seems to block a part I really wanted to see!

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

Ok, thanks!  I'll do what jMi says, assuming of course I ever get the darn page finished.
