I agree.. there's a place for everything, and this is not a place for that kind of language and picures, this is not a pornographic/dating website, and I want it to remain as it is.. whoever laments this (and I know many that do), must understand that Internet is a big place, and this is not THAT place; and quite frankly, I believe in some ethics..

I don't think my parents would like it if I googled inappropriate things.

There just needs some responsible and ethical posting. Here's the one thing I keep in mind before posting anything: post with conscience in mind. Never let your ego allow to take you over and post anything you want. We are all rational beings, and we have brains. We need to practice responsible posting not just today, but everyday. Even with our own photos, we need to practice moral and ethical standards of delivering our messages to other members. Our messages here reflect who we are as members of this community and our own selves.

It's an ad funded site, so if the ad provider ( I do belive it's Google ) has a rule set about various types of content sites has to live up to those rules if they want to continue the cooperation..

Without income there is no servers and without servers there is no SSC and we can't let that happen!

I might think that this is going slightly overboard from Google's side but if you would like to make sure that the message goes home then wouldn't it be best to brig offending users for some time?
Sends a message to everyone and makes people aware of that they crossed the line.

Yep, this will solve future posts with adult content, but mods must clear what has been posted before.

So, it's only video and images or explicit words are counted as adult content, too?

Can't Google be asked WHICH image EXACTLY is the problem or are they simply sending a standard message?

Maybe the solution is to enable members to directly pay for the running of the site with things such as €5/$5/£5/whatever currency subscriptions and a digital tip jar so the poison of having to cow tow to advertisers can be stopped?

Otherwise you're always going to have to obey an edict from someone elses' idea of what is appropriate.

I think it is a standardized message, but I think it's best for us to do our part and help in weeding out inappropriate content to ease the burden.

And by the way, in Tagalog: (note that I made a rough translation of Jan's message, with some modifications to accommodate local dialects too, and this has polite words placed in it)

Hello! Isang anunsyo mula kay Jan, may-ari at administrador ng Skyscraper City:

Nakatanggap po tayo ng babala tungkol sa mga kuntentong hindi angkop sa forum na ito, kasama na diyan ang mga mensaheng may kasamang imaheng at diskusyong malalaswa ("porn") at temang sekswal.

Pinapapaalahanan po tayo na makipagtulungan po tayo, mga miyembro at staff, sa pagsupil sa mga mensaheng malaswa at temang hindi nababagay sa Skyscraper City forums. Maaari po kayong tumulong sa pamamagitan ng paggamit ng "Google Image Search" at hanapin sa Pilipino (kasama na ang Tagalog, Bisaya, atbp.) ang mga salitang hindi wasto o angkop sa ating wika. Maaari rin kayong tumingin sa mensaheng ito ni Jan sa wikang Ingles para sa mga halimbawa.

Kapag may nakita kayong imaheng hindi angkop sa ating forums, mangyari po lamang ipagbigay-alam kay Jan via PM (isama ang website/link ng mensahe) o I-click ang "Report Post" button (yung red triangle na may exclamation point na icon sa babang-kaliwang bahagi ng post) para ipadala sa mga staff members.

Salamat po sa inyong kooperasyon.

Nope, it's a bot scan.

Maybe some formal policy could be devised about image posting. SSC would die without Google adverts, though it wouldn't suffer if all "edgy" non-architectural/infrastructure related pics were not longer allowed.

Since it's a private endeavour I doubt it.

It seems there's a great variety of tolerance for objectionable content across SkyscraperCity. For example, the Australian skybar is far, far more tolerant of sexual content and graphic images than other national forums, whereas others seem comparatively uptight about such stuff. First time visitors would be shocked, I'm sure.

Can't we just pay $20 a year or something to get a subscription to SSC and be freed from Google. This is getting ridiculous...
