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.

No big deal, thanks Covers staff for your time and effort.

 

While you are at it.....How about you put a 24 to 48 hour wait time on posting abilities after signing up for an account. I assume that would cut down greatly on the amount of spammers and aliases that plague this site.

No nudity, no porn, no problem.

But how is posting an active link regarding a player's injury for example, harmful to your advertiser's best interests?

The Daily Babe is not porn/nudity. There is no problem with bikini clad girls, only a problem when there is nudity.

Too many of the active links were linking to porn/nudity.

Again, these steps are necessary for us to comply with advertisers.

am i the only one who loves the irony in the fact that they are cracking down on porn/nudity in order to appease sponsors who are primarily interested in furthering others' gambling habits?
