I've seen many adult-themed craft projects on this board, and I think it would be a good idea to have a separate area specifically for projects like these. I'm sure there are people on Craftster that might be offended by these projects, and what about the younger crafters who browse this site? Usually it's easy to avoid these topics because they are clearly titled, but I've run into a few accidentally because the title was not clear, or I simply clicked the "next" button at the bottom of a separate topic. I understand that these projects are not meant to be pornographic; they are valid artwork or otherwise simply for fun. I still feel it would be best to place these projects into a separate category, so that those who do not wish to be exposed to such things can avoid them. Thank you.

thats a good idea. i'm not one to be offended (i'm more likely amused by it), but it would be nice for others looking to avoid those types of things.

Yah, an Adult board would we great. Help out parents who want to keep there kids 'safe', help out those kids who have programs like NetNanny that block any site with certain words, and help those of us who are looking for adult crafts.

i agree - i think an adult board would be good! sometimes i search specifically for "adult" themes\crafts and have to search thru tons of different threads, so a special board would be helpful,,,, plus, we wouldn't have to worry about getting threads spammed with people commenting on the "inappropriateness" of it

What is the nature of this SIG?

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. 

Looking for fellow craftsters to share ideas with!

Though I'm not too keen on the idea of an adult board in general (threads are usually clearly labeled and I'd hate to see every li'l bit of nudity greeted with "Wouldn't this be better placed on the adult board?"), I really dislike the password protection idea. It's impossible to enforce, lots of trouble to maintain, and creates undo curiousity over vibrator cozies, imho.

I like the idea, but not because of the people who are offended by it.  It would help, but not for that reason alone.   I like it because it'll make it a lot more easier to search.  Especially if you're looking for something for a bridal shower gift, or for someone's birthday, or just because you feel like making something like that.   It would be a lot easier to see it all in one place than to have to look through a ton of threads.   I know we can't have a board for every little category, but this is probably big enough on it's own to have it's own little section Smiley

i think an adult themed board is a great idea, but the passwording is not... it would create too much work for the people at craftster, who i imagine already have PLENTY to do to keep this site running as smoothly as it seems to.  besides... if a minor wants to view things that are meant for a 'mature audience', s/he will find a way to do it.  it is not difficult at all to lie over the internet about your age.

Passwording might be a bit over the top... People can read the place where it would say adult boards, and obviously they would only click there if they wanted to see it.

I think it's a good idea for the reason that it would be easier to find items for those of us looking for them.   I can't beleive anyone would get offended from anything I've ever seen done on this board but if they do ok? 
You can't password protect it, there are over 46000 members to this board.  First you can easily lie about your age, second, every board that I've seen try this has failed and ended up closing down for a few days to try and fix the mess it caused.
What is adult only?  Vibrator cozies, the vagina swap, anything with a vintage pinup on it.  Who decides?  And you will wipe out half the other boards if you move them all.  Although I bet it would be one of the most visited boards. 
My other problem is that if you have an underage person on this board and they see Adult Only...chances are they are going to that board first and foremost.  Right now it has to be in the area they are interested in to even know it's there.  Making a seperate board is free advertisement for those projects.
