I agree with classy lady on this. lets not go down all the nudity arguments here agian. Lets just accept that there is a reason why Rendo and 3DC and DAz do not allow nudity and a lot of that has to do with them being a commercial site. This is a commercial site and I think it should follow their lead. This may not be popular but it is the "safe" thing to do.

A large number of people here advertise their downloads at Rende and DAZ and 3DC and other sites that do not allow nudity so what's the difference?

You wrote: "I just asked a simple question I don't have a problem with it, yet what if I had my grandkids here and one happened to be looking over my shoulder when viewing an item, or the young mothers here say one of their small children just happened by the monitor."

Most US citizen I heared talking about this say: "I don't have a problem with it".

Something I can't understand. If your government enact laws you don't agree, don't elect them. Vote for somebody else. It's easy, trust me :)

Kids should be familiar with breasts and nipples from the first day they live. Hopefully this is true for US kids, too.

If your grandkid has a chance to look over your shoulder, make sure there is nothing to see. It is ---> YOUR responsibility. If it happend accidently, talk with the kids about what they see. Tell them WHY YOU look on this "bad things" and they better don't.

My grandkids are no where near where I live, it was only an example

Your reading to much into this that is not there, I didn't start this thread to cause your reactions you don't post anything  that is nudity. As I said before this is food for thought for the higher ups to discuss.

I agree let's don't go down the long nasty road of what is and what isn't lets just let the higher ups come up with some type of gruidlines, sooner or later they will have to make a decision.  My intention was to bring it to their attention what they decide is up to them 

But your right this is a commercial site and it should follow suit with the larger sites.Smile

This whole thread really pisses me off! The work shown on this site is ART!! and not pornography! Since when is it up to anyone to censor ART. There are lots of art sites on the web, including the many major museums, that feature nude art. If you'd like to see one example of nude art on the web surf to the 'Images of Eyes Galery' at http://www.imagesofeyes.com/nudes/entry2.htm ... I'm sure there are lots more. My point is that nudity and art have been synonomus since the Ancient Greeks .... I'd hate to see us go back to the Dark Ages, and I hope that this ends this childish discussion. Also, just becuase this is Computer Generated Art doesn't make less worthy than any other form of art. Amen.

Whatever else this is it is a site that is out to make money. That means it has to abide by some rules. what would be wrong with saying no nudity in whatever image is used as the thumbnail.

Take this argument to Rendo or DAZ or 3DC and see how far it gets you.

Your thought about thumbnails may have some merit ... but, the site I referenced is endemic of the many web art galleries who are also in busines to make money.  I don't get your logic?

No offense ladies, but this site is not selling anything except for adspace. That's as commercial as it gets. Just where are these mysterious Rules you're speaking of? I'm not aware of any rules anywhere that state a business site on the web can not contain nudity!

I'd also like to see that ShareCG DOES NOT follow suit and tag along down the prudish trail that Renderosity, 3DC and DAZ have gone down just to suit some prudish sense of morality about nudity. I don't have anything nude in my portfolio but I find the rising level of histeria in this thread regarding nudity to be disturbing in and of itself.

No, I don't want it to get pornographic, but nudity is not immoral no matter what your parish priests may say. We come into this world nakkid and if we're blessed we actually get to spend time while we're here in that natural and very healthy state.

Accepting this means to accept something is wrong with naked humans.

You see the problem is everyone has different ideas of what is nudity and what is pornography and that's why places like Rendo and 3DC and DAZ have the rules they have.

If sharecg is going to sell advertising space then they may well have to react to what the advertisers expect as well. I don't know what that may well be. but I am just saying that I think a site like this has to be aware that it might be sensible not to have nude thumbnails.
