while you are right, as a parent, you can at least block "porn websites". I don´t think many people would expect such topics to be publicly discussed on a forum about Korean music.
I feel like a 14 year old kid sending "anons" about oral sex to an adult is weird and I really don´t see why this should be a part of a forum? Is it really that important? If you agree with this, it is not my call to decide as I will not be held accountable, but I would not be able to sleep at night if I did not share my stance on this. I feel like young people should have some space where they can talk about their interests and we, as adults, could all chip in. After all, this has nothing to do with music at all and if people want, they can always discuss such sensitive matters privately.

Thank you for taking that in consideration.
I fully agree with this. It made me very uncomfortable as well and no one would expect such topics to be so easily accessible to minors on a forum relating to kpop. If speaking to minors about such topics is illegal (or should be) irl there is no reason it should be allowed on KS.

One way would be to create a separate subforum that is protected and we would have to manually verify each user through some form of identification. The other option would be to ban 18+ topics completely. Like you said, minors will always find a workaround and join if they really want to.
Minors will always find a workaround, but the least KS can do is at least try to shield minors. It does definitely take a lot of work to manually verify everyone, but users that have clearly stated that they are minors should not be able to access such threads. Maybe KS can have a Google Form verification system where people can apply for access to 18+ threads and if the mods see that they are minors, they are denied access. Minors will still work their way around but at least this solution is taking slight precautions.

Another thing could be to give WP's to minors that reply to or quote messages in 18+ threads. It's quite honestly disturbing. Minors may also post things on the internet that they will regret in the future, and while KS is not in any way responsible for this, I believe trying to regulate this would improve KS significantly.

Or we could just go the other way around and ban each and every 18+ discussion + delete all threads with 18+ prefixes. Yes, think that's what we will do, let me just consult the rest of the staff.

thank you for that. I really don´t want to be petty and I´m not prudent, but I´m happy that you might at least consider some changes. I might feel a bit touchy about that topic, but I will respect the decision. Thank you.

maybe a board that got password protection and you can only get the password through dm from staff if you 18+
but i know people can lie about their age on forum info :jisoosmh:

i also didn't think it was a wise choice to make a sex thread but i was like not bothered to talk about it thinking saying something wouldn't change a thing anyways but guess was wrong about this subject

You should have one that you simply forgot, yes. If needed, I can send a password reset request to your email?

i want my new signature to be gif but it might be a few mb but don't remember after what amount the forum makes it not display as original due to too big file size

It is actually set to unlimited, currently, because we believe our users. Please use it sparingly because recently there have been cases of mass-tagging on a daily basis and we are on the verge of introducing yet another rule about it.

Hello mods can I please get a permanent ban.
Self-ban is not possible. Ban is possible only by breaching rules. Self-deactivation is possible through the Account Preferences. Deactivation will not delete the account in question, but a deactivated user will not receive any notifications from the forum (including major announcements).

Account deletion is possible under extreme cases only. Deleting an account to start fresh is not possible. If I user makes a new account after deleting the old one, they will be banned permanently.
