/a/ rules question.

This is a blue board which means that it's for everybody (Safe For Work content only). If you see any adult content, please report it.

I heared there is an argument /a/.
>>132380619
As long as post pics are work safe and anime, these belong to /a/, even it's Valkyrie Drive.
Work unsafe pics are not allowed in /a/, even it's anime.

I thought this is the rule for /a/.
Do I miss something?

Do we use TV Parental Guidelines or something?

>>132401684
You need to know Hiroyuki that sometimes nudity is a core element of the media (be it anime or manga) and therefore if we are to discuss its effects, its qualities and elements in the most comprehensive manner possible, we must have the freedom to post and discuss nudity.

By not allowing us to post certain content (ala nudity), you are narrowing down the amount of meaningful discussions we can have on this board and in doing so decreasing the quality of the board.
>>
But here's the kicker Hiro. Are they allowed if they're hidden behind a spoiler?
>>
>>132401804

If it has uncensored genitals it's not safe for work.

Hiroyuki, there was a long standing rule that NSFW material from non-pornographic anime and manga was allowed, as to not inhibit discussion of the show.

Due to the risque (but not pornographic) nature of Valkyrie Drive, NSFW images are necessary for discussion. Banning that leads to it being impossible. Similar shows have been fine to post risque material for in the past.

>>
>>132401684
This has never really been a black and white issue on /a/, sometimes things are treated leniently if spoiled or obviously there for the discussion of the anime. Sometimes people write things that are far more not safe for work than any of the images could possibly be and are literally engaging in erotic roleplay here that has nothing to do with anime and nothing is done about it.
>>
>>132401804
No vaginas/penises
>>
Yes NSFW pictures, particularly ones that are obviously porn should not be posted in /a/, however, ecchi anime and manga commonly features nsfw type pictures(to love ru, queens blade, valkyrie drive) and the screenshots or manga pages of those anime and manga are generally tolerated in /a/ as it's part of the discussion, even when it's nsfw, because it's not being spammed all over.

>>132401804
There's no concrete definition of it, although nipples are usually considered not safe for work but considering it's constant presence in anime/manga, official art/screenshots should be tolerated while fan arts should not be tolerated, but that's my opinion.
>>
>>132401804
Work-safe is something that doesn't get you fired if your boss sees it.
Non-safe for work is everything else.

Although for that matter, I would fire anybody browsing the internet and not doing their job if it were me. But that's just me.
>>
>>132401804
The rule isn't intended to make the board actually okay to browse at work. It's intended to stop people from dumping porn instead of discussing.

If you get in trouble at work for viewing it, then it's not safe for work.

So basically no vagina/penis, nipples have always been ok though, especially when it's official art, gif, webm, etc.

Hiroyuki, there's a simple solution for this. Ban people posting NSFW screenshots from shows like Valkyrie Drive outside of Valkyrie Drive threads. It should be fine to post these images inside VD threads.

There's only every one VD thread on the board, so this shouldn't be a huge problem. No one sane would browse a VD thread from work.

it's okay to post lewd images. SOMETIMES.

that's why moot blessed us with spoiler tag
>>
>>132401888
Actual genitalia and explicit intercourse is a no-no. Nipple nudity, especially if it's from the original content itself and not fanart, should be a-okay.

This has long been established.
>>
As I understood it, the rule generally was that nudity that was shown in any non-h anime/manga gets a pass. Anything else was supposed to go to /h/ or /e/.

Not that I care either way, as browsing at work or school isn't very smart. Use your fucking phone at least.

/a/ has allowed for moderately lewd content if it pertains to a currently airing anime. For some reason, a single mod freaked out and starting banning people because Valkyrie Drive had "lewd" transformation sequences, and told everyone to go to /u/. See >>132380874

It's silly.

Somethines things that would technically be not safe for work are posted to make a point or underscore an argument.

Take this for instance. It's posted a lot in Fate Threads. Technically there's an uncensored nipple in it and two women in carnal relations, but I've never seen it taken down as the nudity is not stressed, rather the point that one character happens to be bisexual. It's stuff like this that should be allowed on /a/, while actual smut does to the respective boards.
>>
Hiroyuki can you respond to me please? Thanks.
>>
>>132401888
I think official manga art or actual anime screenshot, so long as the manga/anime is not hentai, it should be fine.

Ecchi anime/manga is ok(nipples, risque pose).
Hentai is not(vagina, penetration).
>>
>>132401888
nudity from anime/manga = ok
nudity from hentai/doujins = not ok
>>
>>132401909
Because then we'd just become /h/ and half the board would be spoiler images. Nipples are fine as long as you spoil it though, especially considering the amount of 80-90s anime with them in it.
>>
>>132401684
From wat I know is pics as long it's from non-pornographic anime and OVA, as long it's spoilered then it's ok because it's /a/ related. Other than that it's not.

Just allow nipples if they are behind a spoiler and are from an ecchi show/manga. Do not allow full on porn or vagina/penis shots. Also do not allow image dump threads of nipples.
>>
>>132401888
The rules aren't meant to make it so people can actually browse /a/ at work, but just to stop there being a permanent "post hentai of this character" thread on /a/ which has nothing to do with discussing anime.

Who in their right mind actually goes into a thread about an ecchi anime at work? Let alone browsing /a/ where someone could see it. It really isn't an issue of being able to look at it at work. It is just meant to stop /a/ becoming a dumping ground for porn and to keep that on /h/ etc.

For the amount of nudity I would say penis/vagina=no, breasts are fine.

There are American laws and standards, but they are irrelevant because they have vastly different goals. 4chan rules aren't made to protect the children, because you have to be an adult to use 4chan. American pornogorphy laws are.
>>
Just use common sense. /a/ shouldn't be an out and out porn board but the odd lewd image from shows like this shouldn't really be a bannable offence.

I think nipples have always been a fine line since they aren't technically genitals. So as long as it's not blatant it usually flies under the radar.
>>
>>132401939
Depictions of sexual intercourse are prohibited, even threads like sadpanda keep it down.

Genitalia is also prohibited, however tits are fine. As long as the dick or cunt is covered the rest of the drawing can be naked, that is all.
Kissing is also okay I guess, as long as it's not extremely explicit shit like VD.

How about this Hiroyuki.

We already have a image tag. This instantly tells people that by viewing that image they will be spoiled about something.

Why not create a new tag so instead of instantly showing the not safe for work image, they see another image that tells them this image will be not safe for work but they don't have to see the image itself. That shouldn't be too hard right?
>>
So make a new /a/ that can we post unsafe pics in.
>>
Why does /a/ need to be worksafe to begin with? Clearly the medium itself doesn't adhere to such standards, so why the fuck should an imageboard dedicated to it have to? People can freely choose whether they browse it at work or not. Seems like rule enforcing for the sake of it, I suggest admins and mods take a step back and think about why people come here in the first place.

>>132402070
It's mostly been a thing due to anime from the 80s that showed them, which is why it's an exception, or because of nip slips.

Very few anime actually do straight up show them these days. It seems like anything considered lewd though as with the VD threads, is straight up against the rules now though.

Like if I posted something from Gundam back in the day with a nip, I'd probably get banned, even though I never would have before.

Everything is allowed except penises and vaginas or full on sex.

Just use spoilers for female nipples or breast fondling I guess

Frankly if you are browsing /a/ at work you are in trouble regardless of the nudity. What most people are concerned about is nudity on their mobiles in public places.

>>
>>132401830
This makes the most sense. The point of banning NSFW content is to make sure this is still a discussion board.

If you say 'it's allowed with spoilers', then you end up with threads full of spoiled NSFW pictures and no content.

If you say 'no nudity allowed what so ever', then lots of shows will be forced to move to image dump boards just for discussion. /a/ should be used for all anime discussion, anything that did or could air on TV in japan is a rough guideline.

The term "NSFW", or 'not safe for work', is meant to describe nudity, not to describe boards you would actually browse in public. Nothing on 4chan is safe for work, there's no sense in complaining that you 'accidentally' saw a bad image in a blue board. That's dumb.

The key to this rule working is it comes down to moderator discretion. They have to be smart enough to know when an image or set of images is derailing the thread from discussion and when it's not. I haven't seen the threads in question but it sounds like the mod mentioned in the OP isn't doing this correctly.

If it's from official material and is not HENTAI or PORN it should be OKAY.

For example, To Love-ru images by Kentarou Yabuki are okay, but TLR (nude) fan art is a no no that belongs on /e/.

I used TLR as an example because it is one of most popular franchises on /a/.

If it's a screenshot/gif/webm taken directly from an anime it should be allowed.

If it's nude fanart from Pixiv or HF or wherever else it shouldn't be allowed.

That's easy to understand for posters and janitors/mods because there's no personal interpretation.

Even better would be to add a NSFW tag besides spoiler tags so people know when a screenshot/gif/webm will contain certain content.
>>
>>132402098
Another possible solution would be adding a NSFW tag, just like we have one for spoilers. This way, NSFW but still non-pornographic content could be posted and people would be warned to not open those posts if they're in any situation where looking at NSFW content would be unadvised.
Also, someone earlier on said how things should be about as perfectly as the mod from >>132401830:
>The rule should just be:
>Is it actually screenshots from the anime? It's allowed.
>Is it 3rd party pornographic fanart? It's not allowed.

I appreciate that you actually came here to ask the community, Hiro. I know it doesn't seem like much on your end, but it really means a lot to me personally. Thank you.
>>
>>132402172
Yes, if it is an actual anime, like Valkyrie Drive and not hentai, like, say, Boku no Pico.

Understand that "safe for work" is not meant to be taken literally, it does not mean people should browse /a/ while they work, it just means that images on /a/ should pertain to the discussion of anime or manga, and in the case of ecchi anime like Valkyrie Drive, screenshots of the show with nipples in them is ok, but erotic fan art with bare nipples and vagina is not.
>>
>>132401888
Traditionally, it's fine as long as it's not hentai.

But >>132402008 works too, I guess.

Anyway, the incident this time was a mistake on that mod's part.
>>
>>132402008
Yeah, like a TRIGGER WARNING.

Oh yeah? Go to /h/ and try to actually discuss anything. I've seen people get banned for trying to discuss hentai; they rationalize it by saying /h/ is only for dumping pictures. What a load of shit.

TV screenshots are posted in Shinmai and Valkyrie Drive threads all the time and it's part of the plot so it should be allowed.

Okay Hiro, "first for Poland" post aside, there's a distinction to make.

Material coming from regular published manga not revealing genitals in full or depicting actual sex is work-safe and belongs to /a/. That includes fan art of the same quality.

Threads on /e/ differ in that they mostly disregard the talk about the specific anime/manga series and concentrate on characters instead. The range of material stays the same as on /a/, though.

Material from adult doujinshi and h-manga/anime belongs on /h/.

Fan art showing genitals in full, or sex (and not fondling, licking etc) belong on /h/.

Threads on /u/ are similar in spirit to /e/, but they limit themselves to yuri and can accept hentai.

There's an increasing amount of fanservice surfacing in recent shows. However, it's not possible to split the group. As others say, it's a slippery slope.
Consider this picture from To Love Ru: Darkness. It's a regularly published manga in Jump Square. The genitals aren't revealed in full, and it doesn't depict straight on sex. Thus, it belongs to /a/.

If you were caught looking at this at work, you'd be fired on the spot. Yet this is considered "safe for work" by 4chan's standards, because there is no nudity and it's not a sexual situation.

Basically this: >>132401830 . The criterion is if the anime is pornography or not; the actual content of the image is irrelevant, so long as it's from an actual anime and that anime is not pornography.

How do we define pornography? That's a tricky one, and a problem the best minds of the US government have not been able to solve beyond "I will know it when I see it".

But I'd suggest that any show being aired and promoted by Funimation probably isn't pornography.

It's impossible to word the current accepted rules without mentioning 'moderator discretion' at some point.

Me neither, it's the worst idea ever.

Anime is full of hot girls, so a board about anime is going to be full of hot girls, but allowing nudity is just going to turn this place into porn dumps in which case go to /e/ or /h/.

Leave things as they are. If it isn't broken don't fix it.

it does in japan and in the west. when talking about anime, japanese clearly means robots, but when they talk about any appliances, they meant any mecha.

Aren't we fine as we are?

Just allow Valkyrie Drive lewd as long as it is spoilered.

It's not the first ecchi anime we experience, the mod was more against lesbians that actual tits for the looks of it

We were fine with DxD, Queen's Blade, Seikon no Qwaser, Lades vs Butlers etc etc etc.

Please I beg you eliminate generals and clearly circlejerking threads.

Overlord was finished long ago. There's nothing to discuss anymore as there are no daily (not even weekly) translations but they keep it as generals.
Also cancerous newfags conglomerates threads as 3x3 threads. Everyone who post in these nowadays know each other from MAL or something (or even facebook) and come here to circlejerk (which is forbidden in /a/, they should go to /soc/) and no one can stand it anymore.

Please read this Hiro.

Basically put - If it's in the show it should be spoilered up with the lewd tag and be able to be discussed.

Dumping stuff that hasn't happened in the show like porn art or whatever is not allowed.

The general idea of NSFW and SFW is if you would get in trouble from the average person if they saw you browsing it while walking by, in practice SFW stuff is basically no porn or nudity.

>>132402008

I'm for this though, there's things that need to be posted but happen to have varying degrees of nudity, like a new chapter of berserk or whatever.

>>132401684
Now for personal opinion time: the rules need to change, the rules feel oppressive, and when rules are being selectively enforced (like these are) it leads to corruption, and it leads away from the ideal that everyone here is equal and anonymous.

There are a load of recurring threads here that utterly disregard the SFW rule, in particular the "sadpanda" ones.

The de-facto rule seems to be "you can't post lewd things, unless it's spoilered and it's something the mods like".

This isn't sustainable.

4chan is not in any way safe for work anyway, minors are banned from 4chan, and the culture of /a/ is not safe for work. The rules need to change to accommodate the people, not the other way round.
>>
>>132402329

That being said, if it's a Screencap from Valkyrie drive and it was legit broadcast on TV then its nonpornographic and should be allowed on /a/

If you define clear rules like other anons and I >>132402291 have, then you will avoid future conflicts when an NSFW dump is defended by saying "it's all tagged as NSFW, it's totally fine!".

>>132402643
The key to the rules working are mods that understand how the rules should be implemented. The current rules are basically just a tool to remove what content needs to be removed, that does not mean it should be used for every instance where it CAN be removed. Only when it SHOULD. Mods (and janitors) need to understand when to apply it.

I think that sadpanda threads should be moved out, they have nothing to do with anime. That said, if they get moved then it should be made sure that whatever board they are moved to allows them to discuss the topic. If they get moved to /e/ or /h/, the threads need to stay the same, i.e. only post one image from a doujin, so that discussion can happen rather than people dumping entire doujins all day.

You're my Hiro :3

PERFECT

>>132402760
Meaning I won´t be allowed to post this pic anymore?
Nias nipples are shown in the anime. see>>132402598


Sorry for complicating things.
>>
>>132402770

Don't confuse poor hiro.
>>
>>132402864
Yes. It has always been.
>>
>>132402864
Yes. If it aired on TV, it's not pornography.

Any frame from a TV anime should be acceptable.
>>
>>132402864
Yes.
As long as it's a screenshot from an actual anime.
>>
>>132402760
This works, just make sure mods aren't too strict on what is 'nude'. A raunchy image with some tight clothes or a nipple peaking out should not be an issue, but full nudity and genitals should be banned.

We do not want to get banned for posting images where you can see nipples poking through the shirt.
>>
>>132402864
Yes. Has always been.
>>
>>132402893
>a screenshot from an actual anime.
But that makes posting H-anime okay.
>>
>>132402864
ye
>>
>>132402860
Of course male nipples are okay.

wew the show that even triggers the admin??
Now I am interested and must watch.

Yes! AT-X Standard is good!

I thought if it was a blue-board there was supposed to be no NSFW period? That is probably why mod-kun is coming down on us.

We could always make /a/ pink and strictly enforce a rule saying that NSFW can only be posted if it is relevant to the discussion.
>>
>>132402760
Awesome, that's how it should be.
>>
>>132402864

It's always been fine here.
>>
>>132402836

Nothings changing, mods and janitors are just retards and don't know anything about the board, nothing new.

Hiro my friend, here is a very important question:

/ag/ - Anime Generals
/ar/ - Anime Retro
/man/ - Manga

WHEN?
>>
>>132402864
yes
>>
>>132402760
So, it's official?
>>
>>132402812
There should be some room for interpretation for fan art nudity. However, that would have to be with the caveat that you're dealing in risky territory so it had better be good and relevant.
>>
>>132402864
As long as the main function of the media is not to be pornographic there should be no limits on what can be posted.
>>
>this hiro guy has no clue what's going on.

I miss moot.
>>
>>132402864
Has always been.
>>
>>132402864
Yes, because it promotes discussion on the changes BDs have.

ATX version is the one we strive for!
>>
>>132402864
Yes. Always have been. Just to make it clear in case future issues, people have been posting Blu Ray screencaps as well since those tend to have lesser censorship.
>>
>>132402777
fuckoff
>>
>>132402858
People wont go through the effort to rename images.

It wont happen.

As silly as this sounds, youre putting too much work onto the users.
>>
>>132402895
Images like >>132402881 should be the limit for 'lewd'.

Can we filter out htese words while we are at it?

For a long time 6+ years we could post lewd H things. Moot went sjw on us and started banning lewd things about two years ago. This angered many, though it was moot´s website at the time so we were forced to deal with it.

As a 7 year veteran going onto 8, I believe lewd and dirty things keep the casuals, liberals and the politically correct crowd away.

Let dem titties free, yo.
>>
>>132402864

Yes. It always has been before.

Thanks for coming in to clear this up.

>>132402881
That's fanart you mongloid, get that shit out of here.
>>
>>132402864
Yes, it's anime like any other.
>>
>>132402760
I can agree on this.
>>
>>132402920
No.
>>
>>132402864
So BD is also an okay?

>>132402770
