we require publishers to check that the webpages containing their ad code complies with our program policies.
I may be misinterpreting this, but could it be as simple as "don't display ads on NSFW pages"?

I think it means we can put stuff behind a click through message saying something to the effect of "Material past here may not be family-friendly," and that everything on the other side of that boundary will not have Google ads. The other side of the boundary will have the forum, those tropes we feel are safer to have there (like Fetish, Pron, Troper Tales), etc..

Other step to tighten up commenting and other editing would have to be shown, as well.

^^That's true. However, if we've already been shut off from Google, isn't it pretty much a lifetime ban?
I put something on this page's discussion page, didn't want to put it on the Cut List just yet for some reason.

^^^ We may need to apply that policy to our poor Fan Fic Recommendations pages as well - several of the stories linked there are decidedly NSFW.

What's precedent ever done for us?

I'd like to apologize to everyone for creating the "FUCK YOU GOOGLE" thread on their help forums.

Would Our Super-Strict Language Policy change? It's hard to tell, they're mostly concerned with pictures and all...

I'd much rather TV Tropes find a new ad service than censor everything, by the way.

[up][up] All outbound links will likely have to go through one of those "Leaving TV Tropes" things everyone despises.

[up][up]We've already gone over this. We currently cannot find a revenue source as lucrative as Google.

Please, only post something if you can add something constructive to what we are currently planning.

Fast Eddie's 302 (I see no need to quote it) makes me think that maybe the change won't be as doom-filled as I initially feared.

So, can do this without removing much?

OMG this is bull**** I mean seriously? wow google are asshats. way to censor the f***ing internet.

The offsite can run another set of ads? a script tool (like a firefox addon) that users could download could skip that now leaving tvtropes thing probably.

Cutting anything would ruin the wiki.

Here's an idea: how does The Other Wiki support itself? Ads or donations?

If they do ads, why don't we look for their ad supporter?
Several hours ago I was going to put Fetish Fuel on the Cut List.

Should I?

The Other Wiki runs off substantial donations. Different scale from this site.
Her Royal Highness
I'm pretty sure Wikipedia doesn't do ads, except their own ads for donations.

Ninja'd.

^^ While there's no harm in merely cutlisting something, I think at this point the idea is to move these things, not delete them.

No, Fast Eddie will cut if needed.

I suppose it's not possible to blacklist ads from appearing on particular pages. The problem with an entirely separate server is the massively increased hassle for everyone involved, I'm afraid. I know I just might not bother with half the wiki if it was on an entirely separate page behind a DON'T SUE US barrier.

This can be disabled by people who have handles?

Anyways I appreciate your efforts to keep this wiki alive Fast Eddie.
You got some dirt on you. Here's some more!

Should we make a thread about forum topics that need to be cut, or will the mods go through all of them on their own?

Also, if google doesn't take foul language, we could always put in an auto-censor.

Fast Eddie said the forum will be part of the section with no ads, so I believe there's no need for that.

That doesn't sound like a good idea, for several reasons.

If the forum—even just the right side—is on the no-ads server, what will pay for it?
