I would agree L Mage if this wasn't a time of Crisis. Right now we need to grin and bear it until we get the ads back.
I agree with L Mage. I think we should be more of an encyclopedia. I'm sure google will give us our ads back.

Do Not Want was nuked? When did that happen? And why didn't anybody just let one of the redirects stick?

Do Not Want was renamed to Translation Trainwreck years ago, and the redirect was cut and locked later because everyone and their brother was using it as the meme rather than the trope... as you just tried to do.

Nothing new has really been decided, Vyctorian. Eddie did cut everything on the Hentai index and the fanfic recs, but anything cleared by the council will almost certainly be back.

So does that mean we no longer catalog porn/hentai/fan fiction or what?

Can we please make the distinction between regular fanfiction and Porn Without Plot fanfiction?

[up][up] Hopefully this means we can no longer catalog the former two. The latter is a whole different story.

Note that you can create a Fan Works subpage for a work to index fanfics that have wiki pages.

I'm going to have to very VERY strongly advocate for non-pedophilic hentai and porn. Sex is not evil.

Eddie has already stated that the fanfic recs will come back after being cleaned.

The general idea is to get rid of straight-up porn. Not works that happen to contain explicit sex. Except for pedophilia, which will use a far stricter metric.

The line is fuzzy, which is why we're going to use a committee to determine the difference case by case.

Thus, it's possible that something in the Hentai category could come back if it's determined that it's not "just" porn and doesn't contain anything that sexualizes children.

Please do not take this as an invitation to defend/nominate works.

Just want to mention the fact that there is plenty of fanfiction that isn't porn, and that doesn't include explicit sex scenes. I should hope all of fanfiction isn't hit by this; there is, after all, the one precent (I forget whose Law that is) to think about.

I have no issues and fully support the condemnation and purging of pedophilia, but I have major issues with demonization of porn/sex.

Don't say stuff like that. Its an invitation to get banned on general principle.

Vyc, I think it's part of our bigger problem. Demonizing porn or sex is just silly. However, it looks like it's difficult for us to trope works that are solely pornographic, because we have trouble keeping it to acceptable levels for our ad providers. I can't say I'm happy with this, but it's an issue.

We can express our opinions (to a point), but if we say anything that even looks like an "or I'm leaving" message then it tends to result in the banhammer being used in my experience. And that was in less fraught times too.

[up] I think it's established that something wrong happened with the curtain. If that was the case, we may have found our reasons for why Google cut Tropes off.

This seems like an agreeable solution. Can we set up a wall or block around anything that seems NSFW?

I mean I'm not familiar with Google's policy on such things, but their adds occupy for less wholesome sites with age barriers and warnings.

Okay, he's a clear question with a hopefully clear answer: Under this anti-porn thing, will all fanfiction work pages and trope pages be cut?
