Can we put a curb on this? Didn't we previously?

Serious case of Deja vu the Post Game Threads are going through. It's getting over the top, it's one poster, then things build after that. Just like before IIRC.

We were just talking about that in the MOD forum, we'll be addressing for next game.

Just curious, what the standards on this is? This gif by Stryker gets posted each time and is fine:



Although she's fully clothed, cleavage is the prominent feature here.

However other ones (mainly posted by Girly) get deleted most of the times. Generally because of skin (and times underware) that's shown. The latest one was a performer in a cheerleading outfit.

What's the criteria here on what's allowed? Amount of skin? The type of clothing visible? Or lack thereof?

I think if people used NSFW tags it would be better for all of us. Drawing a line on this stuff is tough (and annoying). Posters here know we don't encourage it, it would be great if they just stepped up and didn't make things more difficult.

Agree even with NSFW tags we still don't want to see a creeping (hah!) of ever so slightly more and more risque, makes it hard to moderate, there's millions of other gifs out there that don't push the envelope.

The simplest criteria is basically would you want it on your screen when your boss walked by.

I just don't get the need to post these gifs at all. What does a half naked woman have to do with a Flames win? It's just weird and objectifying women.

I think you could safely wait for 20 minutes after the creation of the PGT, and then just delete everything posted up to that point.

What does a clothed man giving a thumbs up have anything to do with a Flames win?

In an effort to non-objectify women, it's almost like we are objectifying them by de facto mandating male-only celebratory gifs. There are some people who believe using black people in gifs is racist, so yeah... http://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-409...mojis-and-gifs

Someone could find something wrong with every single gif.

Not sure what you're referring to but maybe because it's funny? Comedy and sex are two different things and half naked gifs of women aren't comparable to a clothed man giving a thumbs up.
