Thanks for the new board Killatron ;)
It has more safety, better user control and a nice design. Very good!
The old board was going nuts with all that spam and crap being posted lately.

Now we can take a deeeeeeep breath and have a fresh new start :D

I guess we should have some moderators please!
http://niveakid.de.vu Shape up and look tired!

I can only agree with Niki, nice work Kilatron!!

Let's hope this board remains used as intended and people contribute freely!

I'll add some posts as soon as I dig up something worthy of a first post here. ;)

Hi there.

Just to ask how are you with fuller figured women in spandex as I would like to post pics of my wife but I know it was considered a bit taboo on the old site.

The BBW topic again, hmm. Well, the site is still the same site, its just a new message board. But I figure we can give it a try. There are many degrees of BBW though. There is generally thick, big overall build, to just plain big. The subject is often met with mixed reactions based on what degree we are talking about.

Once we get the member base larger Ill run a poll again on the subject and we will see how it goes. For now hold off on posting for about a week, then mark your posts with the prefix "BBW:" and we will test the waters.

Hi All,

In the rules it says that we can't post

"a ban on any and ALL advertisements for anything outside of this site"

Does that mean I can't post pics/previews/news from my site?

Does it also mean I can't post about some spandex I have for sale?

I look forward to your reply

Cheers

Yep, you read that correctly. Any and all includes your preview photos and outside links.

The possibility of having a marketplace for people to list their eBay auctions and such is still under consideration. But as of now, that too will be treated as spam.

Kilatron,

I think you'll be cutting off your nose to spite your face.

The majority of pictures of spandex clad women come from websites or other media. If you are exlcuding these posts then your forum isn't going to look very busy!

You may get a few candid pics & a few stolen images with watermarks deleted or edited, but this forum will be a lot worse.

I have been on TPOWIS for the last 5 or so years, and this is a very sharp turn in direction.

If my input isn't wanted then I will stick to shinyuploads, A Love of Spandex & Shinybods where content is appreciated.

I understand TPOWIS is your baby & you have the right to include/exclude what you feel is right

Rawy

Doesn`t sound very positive. "The BBW topic again", "mixed reaction" having to mark my posts and "test the waters". You make it sound like anyone beyond a certain weight should be under constant scrutiny. I offer you pics out of a desire to show others and I feel that I have to make an explanation to placate people who don`t like a fuller figured woman `cause it may offend them. I may be offended by very thin girls but how can I say that in all honesty here.She isn`huge if that`s what offends "certain people"; just a bit larger. The other MB`s I am a member of have no problem with this and I am a mod on one of them.
I don`t feel welcome here and will not post pics so for any of your members who do like a fuller figured woman in spandex I appologise.

First of all thanks for redoing the site would have been easy to let it die. On the rules I have to agree with shinywear in that I think they are too rigid. If a webmaster wants to advertise their site why not as long as they leave a few samples, at the moment they'll be very little we can post as most pics/vids are copyrighted. As for the BBW stuff, why not setup a BBW section in the forum & then people who wanna see big asses can & those that aren't interested don't have to. If setup that way & anyone feels the need to criticise certain images then ban them, they can have no excuse if posted in the correct section of the forum.
Cheers

Hello,
I think the Rulez as stated are for various reasons. Killatron, Tonsgirl, and I (Spider-Man) are getting this Site geared up for alot of future updates. Shinywear you can post pics as you like but we are asking that no advertising of your products be included in the post. If you want to Advertise on this site please PM myself or Killatron and we can set something up for you. Vorn29, no one said you can't post them. Killatron is asking you just to hold of for a week, post them and he will do a poll. if the poll goes well then maybe we have a BBW section. its all about the fan base and what they want. And last welcome back everyone looking forward to working with you guyz and Galz....

...I'm sorry for my bad english but I come from Europe...

I think that this board is about Spandex,Lycra, ... so I don't understand the BBW problem.
If is a BBW or a skinny or a fit woman (or man) should not be a problem...till the pictures/videos/discussions will be spandex related. this is my opinion and don't want to force moderators but I think bbw can just enrich this board.
bye

I have a little question about the wording in the rules. This is what is written (Bold text=my doing): Men posing as women is not permitted. Sadly the general rules of the internet also apply here. Why does it says Sadly?

Thats a good question. I think the rule was altered from something else at one point or another either by myself or a mod. It's one of the early rules, I will adjust the wording.

Just wondering: Can someone do something about posts that attract viruses and the like? There are frequent posters whose images no longer open because they appear to be attacted to spyware and viruses.

I've had to take my desktop/laptop to the systems manager at work on at least four occasions for that reason.
You're damned right I'd rather see women wear tights! Does anyone have a problem with that?

@Savethespandex, wish there was an easy fix for that. But it will involve manually going through each post to clean them out. SHL does a great job at handling a lot of that. But it's why I gotta find a solution that works perfectly for this site.

Men's Avatar rule concepts:
  • The photo may only be of yourself. No male athlete or other figure.
  • The photo must be a head shot, head to waist, or a photo showing at least 90% of your body.

Up for consideration, a ban on avatars of men in women's spandex. Other concepts to consider, earning the right to use an avatar. Have at least 1 thank, or XX number of posts.
