A big part of our ability to operate, update and moderate this forum at Covers.com comes from the relationship with our advertisers.  Recently those advertisers have begun to crackdown and set higher standards for content where their ads display on a daily basis.  In order to appease our advertisers who are very valuable to the future growth of this forum, we need to implement some updates to the Community Forum guidelines.
 
We love porn and nudity just as much as you, but any images, avatars & links containing nudity or pornographic material are now banned from the forum.

Users are no longer able to post active links in threads. You can still post the URL you want users to view, but now other users will have to copy the link and paste it in the browser themselves. Don’t be lazy; it’s just one simple step.

Lastly, remember that we’re always watching what you post. We reserve the right to remove and ban any users we feel are not meeting the guidelines. We don’t want to do it, so please don’t give us a reason to.

Please take some time and review the full Community Manifesto http://www.covers.com/postingforum/forum_manifesto.aspx.

Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

"the relationship with our advertisers" tells covers.com how to operate? The majority of your advertisers are Sportbooks, and the so-called "expert" touts...So, what does this have to do with nudity? this is a male dominated 'adult' sports information & handicapping site! your advertisers need the forum participants, we surely don't need ?the advertisers (covers needs the revenue) so what I am hearing is the advertisers are now pimping covers? why don't they concern themselves with immediate payouts, and so called "free picks" that are none existent to reality, this is a meltdown in the works, I am sure their is more to come, Is covers planning a new forum dedicated to religion? should it's members be justified in putting Birka clad women on display? i for one enjoy the unique style of displaying the female body, and connecting it to sports, handicapping, through the creativity of the notorious avatar...this is nothing more then pure unadultreated bullshit, on the part of covers, you "sold out" the foundation that made you what you are today, without the forum your nothing, and you obviously know it. can you even imagine!!! a sports book advertiser complaining about NUDITY?????? on a gambling site yet???

see you all in church on Sunday, the NFL will just have to wait
