Censoring the Forum Gallery??
I just got an email from some administrator of the gallery..stating that one of my images had been deleted. This particular image had been in the gallery since the inception of the "ourppa.com community.. The "possible" reasons for deletion given were, "partial or incomplete upload", "broken image" or " image not in keeping with PPA standards"... This image was hardly offensive, and was viewing fine since it was uploaded.. If PPA is going to become censors, at least have the courage to state specifically why an image that has been on the site for a long time is removed, and not just give 3 possible reasons... I surely hope this isn't some grand plan of PPA .. to play censors..
Images removed from galleries
We actually did two things with the Galleries today.
We removed images that had fully exposed breasts or genitalia. The forum committee decided at their fall 2006 meeting to not allow posting of these types of images on the gallery. More discreet nudes and boudoir type shots are still allowed. We went through today and removed some of the older ones that had been approved prior to the meeting.
We also ran a gallery utility that checks for broken links, corrupted or missing images or thumbnails, and other bad stuff in the data base and removes them.
The forum sends out an automated message when the images are removed. That is why the text is so generic.
Also, as an fyi, i am going to move this to the forum FAQ section for future reference.
