Could I ask why this has been introduced? There is already 1 thread with photos of a posters cervical mucus...... from what I've seen on other forums with the same function we will soon see pictures of mucus plugs, pussy boils, injuries and other nasties.

I love mn as it isn't like other sites. Please reconsider this function.

Many thanks.

I'm stunned that there isn't already a whole topic full of the people who love looking at spots/boils/whatever the pus filled things are. grin

Hi TheBuggerlugs

The option to add photos was introduced in some topics some time last year. We introduced it because it seemed like a useful function, as MNers often want to share pics, but have to link out to them. More recently it was rolled it out across the site, as lots of people were clamoring for it in a variety of topics, so they could post pictures of cakes, pets, knitting projects and all manner of things.

If anyone starts posting obscene pics, or anything that is beyond the pale, we'll obviously remove these. As for sporn and cervical mucus type things, these do seem to be topics that people like to discuss on MN, and as long as they're not obscene etc, we'll see no reason to censor them.

Obviously, one person's pussy boil delight is another person's <boak>, so we would encourage folks to put a warning in their thread title if it contains gross pictures. MNHQ are happy to add warnings too, if threads are reported to us.

Hope this makes sense, as ever, please do report anything you'd like us to see, we're always happy to take a look (even at boils)
