    Nudes

    Talking of nudes, if you have nudes on your websites like I do, do you feel the need to warn people about it ??

    It is ridiculous that people can get bothered by nudity but, not by ultraviolence.

    I take the Euro stand there.

    Of course a little "nudity" warning might help you to get more attention ^___^

    Nudity warnings are good for people who might be vewing the forums from work or school so they're still a good idea.

    I've noticed alot of people who come to my website are from abroad and in countries where viewing even tasteful nudes would be against the law, so I just include a note that a section contains nudity, rather than have someone get a nasty shock...

    ... like my Grandmother for instance...

    Hey Barry,

    Great work on your site. I love the orange painting of the child!

    I won't be having any warnings about nudity on my new site. Though the only nudes will be figure studies.

    I think your work is very tasteful.

    Nudes Warnings

    Thanks for all your answers. I think I'll leave it the way it is, I really believe there is nothing offensive about it!

    I agree, but I think that a warning should be included with both.. Perhaps a selectable icon when you make a post that would inform people before they open the link what the content consist of. Like, if you see a boobie icon to the left of the tread you know there is nudity, a gun for violence tree for landscape and so on

    HAHA a boob icon. A lot of people...especially the elderly have a great respect for nudity in artwork. There are very little people who are actually offended by it I believe. Very little people with a computer that is.

    Smile Nudes

    I can see both points. At the end of the day I just want to sell my prints and for buyers to appreciate what they are purchasing!
