    There should be an 18+ section or just somewhere people can post dirty things..im sure there's people on here that aren't interested in learning how good of a bottom a person is or their crazy one night stand stories..I know I'm not interested in reading about that..

    Speaking of dirty things,I've seen a few people that have bare asses as their profile pic..isn't that against the rules or something?

    It appears many of the rules aren't rigidly applied here. That can be a good and a bad thing. Good in the sense that some forums are so puritanical valid concerns people need to discuss can be blocked. On the other hand I don't like the idea of some of the young teenagers who post here reading some of the full on adult content. But hey, this is the age of the internet when pre-teens routinely access all kinds of hard core and violent porn.

    True but I'm trying to see all this from the perspective of a moderator trying to figure out how to apply the forum's rules. Those rules, if you read them, have some rather strict (if a bit ambiguous) standards which several posts I've read of late fail to live up to. In general though I'm in favour of tolerant moderation hoping that those who don't like reading 'something dirty' will stop reading. Problem is once you've read something it's hard to 'unread it'. Some of the very graphic gay male sexual scenarios painted in detail here are enough to give some dykes nightmares and visa versa and that's before confronting problems of fake age, gender and identity used to coach the very young into dangerous situations. But hey, the real solution is to include realistic discussions into our education systems at an early age. Maybe that makes me a bit of an old foggie and maybe it simply draws attention to the fact that no matter how good moderation of places like this is they can never be 100% safe?

    As I mod I would restrict posts that are NSFW in a troll way/scam, but if someone wanted genuine information I think it'd be okay. If people don't want to read it they don't have to. If it's a NSFW image then bye bye lol. I understand where you're coming from.

    Mods could always make a new rule that NSFW text should be kept in a spoiler with a warning. Also explaining how to make a spoiler.

    NSFW? What if your place of work is a primary school and you find a couple of your pupils watching heavy S & M porn on their mobiles?

    This is just my own opinion but if you are looking for a NSFW forum, then you don't want to be here. There are thousands of such sites out there. While I would advocate and support a separate area for anyone over 18, I will not support the concept of a separate area just for the purpose of exchanging graphic sexual content.

    we could just add one called 'snowflake' and save the hassle. I mean it would cast a pretty big umbrella. But in all seriousness that has been brought up many times in this same thread and it has been answered. No because we need the site administrator to do so. If you are feeling lucky try and contact him but i think your odds are better spent trying to win the lottery.

    It was just a question since I am new here and I don't mind at all. Thanks for the suggestion with the Admin though

    An asexual subforum for one. Pretty messed up giving heterosexual people a platform but not allowing asexual people who are already struggling with visibility a space.

    Honestly theres a lot of things I'd like to see added this site. When you pay to become a supporter, maybe some actual perks or something for that? I don't know. Some more subforums would be nice but none of us have the ability to create those right now. But maybe someday we will.

    I just joined, and I'm disappointed to find no asexual forum, especially when you have it as a prefix choice.

    If I had the ability to make an asexual forum section, I would. There are a lot of forum categories that would be helpful here such as more subcategories in the Transgender section for starters. But as of now, none of us can make any new sections, we simply don't have the power. Hopefully one of these days we will and I'd more than happy to make those forums for anypony that needs them.

    Personally categories Id like to add would be

    -Asexual category
    -NonBinary/Gender fluid
    -Sub categories in the transgender forum (such as FTM, MTF, Non Bijary/Gender non-conforming, agender (not the same as asexual), to make a few examples).

    You bring up a prevelent issue. We do need more forum categories. But as of now, creating those ain't possible yet,

    Something that would be great would be to improve the lag on the mobile devices. I haven't yet come out to my parents, so I sometimes have to use my crappy phone.

    How about changing the sub forums if new ones can't be created. Like heterosexual people can just ask their questions about non heteronormative people in questioning/general one right?

    WTF? Why are you making out that i am some kind of horrible heterophobe for pointing out that allies don't need a specific place in a community that is not for them while asexual people who are already ostracized and suffering from lack of visibility are excluded.
    Also wtf is with claiming heteronormative is something bad. Thats like saying "cis" is an insult. It is a descriptive term. Jeez

    Lgbt+ communities are places specifically for non heteronormative to talk about issues relating to them and get support. Therefore there need not be a specific subforum in such groups for those that the forum is not even for! LGBTQIA spaces are for LGBTQIA people. There is no reason why straight allies should be given a space in a community that is not made for them. They can easily ask their questions in the general subforum. However exclusion of some lgbt+ identifying people is utter bullshit.
    Your attitude stinks. Deliberate dismissal of the very real problem of asexual erasure and making accusation of me for pointing out the issue is a shitty thing to do. Even your accusation of me being "aggressive" is shutting down the conversation and drawing attention away from the issue. Thanks alot asshole.
