My! Will you people lock everything in life? Do you think it's in young people's interest to blur, hide everything sexual from them (and don't worry they know more than what you think lol!)Huh? Like that, when you become adult, you think sex is something you should be ashamed off. I think there is nothing worse for the sexual life development.

Plus those topics are always always clearly indicated. Most of the time, the "sex" crafts are cute. If you are not able to explain things like that to your kids, you should give up on their education!

Pay attention, censorship is the better way to prepare dictatorships!

I have an idea for you, put a bandage on kids eyes, cotton in their hears and lock them in their bedroom. oufff, nothing terrible will happen to them!  Angry

Geeze guys it was just a suggestion to lock the board. I said I liked the idea of an adults only board, the only reason I suggested locking it was because y'all were trying to find a way to keep theyoung kids out and I said I knew it wouldn't really work because everyone can lie about their age, and I NEVER SAID SEX  WAS A BAD THING AND WE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF IT!  I didn't intend for all of you to slam me and my idea.  I am officially begging off of this topic anymore.  Just wanted to offer my 2 cents and help craftster.

Pretty much everyone has shot down the password idea, so I won't bother to shoot that down as well. Wink

I think it would be too difficult to have an Adult Only board simply because it's really hard to define "Adult Only".  First of all, some people have higher standards than others.  For instance, I won't consider anything with a pin-up girl to be adult only, but I'll bet there are some people who would... Things like that.  I'm actually not easily offended at all, so my standards on things to be made "adult" would be lower than other people.  Basically, it's too hard to define "Adult Only" and in any case, most people label their boards accordingly if it may offend some viewers (IE--I've seen people have "PG-13" or "May Offend" in their titles)  So in that sense it keeps those who don't want to see anything "bad" from not accidently seeing anything. 

And as far as trying keeping the younger crowd out--probably if they saw an Adult Only board they'd be far more drawn to it anyway.

I was not speaking about you and wasn't placing any words in your mouth! It was an argumentation about the general idea of the Adult board and the danger of censorship.
And as krajackex perfectly said :And as far as trying keeping the younger crowd out--probably if they saw an Adult Only board they'd be far more drawn to it anyway. lol As well, to define what is adult or not...

I didn't want to attack anyone. I just wanted to speak freely about the fact people locks things in life more and more. That's sad. And dangerous.

well i don't think an adult board would be created for the purpose of keeping kids out. its so crafts of a similar theme can be placed in the same location, just as there are seperate boards for clothes, and recon clothes, and so on.
so, if someone was interested in, for example, making some kind of adult-themed craft, they'd find it easier to see relevant posts.
i don't think that its a matter of censorship. ... its just another suggestion on how to expand and tweak the way the boards are organized. Smiley

Rather than making a new board I'd rather the mod just encoraged everyone to make the titles say "mature" or "adult" - one of the things that attracted me to this board was that it wasn't moderated to be child safe.

whilst i can see what the person who posted orginally was trying to say, i think in practice this sectioning of adult projects, as a form of censorship,  is not the direction that crafster needs to take as a board. as every internet junkie knows censorship (for lack of a better word) is difficult over the internet and there are usually ways of getting around it.

personally i think its highly unlikely that children look at this board for their own benefit -- and even if they do (this goes for younger teenagers too), i don't think (or have never seen!) anything that would be considered lewd or nasty... for example pornography.

i think its part of the spirit of art and design (and craftster) that limits aren't placed on what people can and can't post and i don't think anything that fringes on being 'adult' in nature should be put in a censored section.

nor do i think it should have its own category particularly - but others may disagree. i don't think havig a freely accessible special section is necessarily a bad idea

I know there is no way to really see how old a crafter is, but it would be a good idea, to have that one password encoded so you have to contact the mod for the password and she would have to approve you by looking at how many post you have , how long you have been a member and age. 
I don't like the idea of it being password protected.
I'm sure there are younger people here that are mature enough to handle a few adult crafts.
It's not like there's actually any pornography on here so it shouldn't really be a problem..

ditto.
My thinking is this- if it is knitted boobies THEY ARE JUST KNITTED BOOBIES. even my mother thinks those are hilarious.
The only thing I would be offended by is outright porn.
Which I have never come across on here.
I do however think it would be a fun idea but I also know (having been young once) that if you do it to keep those who are too young out THEY WILL COME IN DROVES!


THEY ARE HARMLESS CRAFTS!.

But yes- it would make the searching alot easier.

Instead of making a separate board, which might not work so great for the afformentioned reasons, why doesn't a dedicated craftster take some of their own time and create a page of links to other "adult" threads? There is one that I know of that has links to all of the tutorials, and it's really cool.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=25199.0

That way searching would be much easier for those of us who would like to be inspired, and all of the crafts can stay on their respective pages (so we don't have crocheted things, resin things, food things, etc., all on one page). And it won't be as big of a deal whether a pinup model is an "adult image" or not, it wouldn't prevent anyone from seeing anything (borderline censorship). People who want their craft on the page could PM the person who started it, or the rest of us could let her/him know when we find one we think should go on it. Like hugs-n-bugs was saying, we all just want the best for Craftster.

I think it works fine to just have a word of warning on the title because some of the content is a little adult for sure (I'm thinking of the hilarious "Chester the Molester" thread, which isn't even that bad). But let's face it, reading about sex and sex-related stuff is fun. We like it. So let's just honor the threads with a links page.
