Caution ... Clicking on Images may Lead to Porn ads.
Many of our members post images that are hosted on other hosting sites. Clicking on a thumnail image will take you away from the Fashion Spot and lead you to a larger and easier to see image that is housed elsewhere. However, these sites often have very graphic porn ads and sometimes you are forced to see them in order to get to the image you are trying to see.

A good popup blocker is effective against some of the offensive ads, but not all.

If you are easily offended and wish to avoid seeing such images, please do not click on thumbnails.

Or, you may check where the image is hosted, before clicking on the thumbnail and determine the likelyhood of it being "safe" or not. To do this you must look at the "properties" of the image and that will show you the address where it's hosted.

Usually Safe:

thefashionspot.com
imageshack.com
photobucket.com
flckr.com
most magazine sites, blogs, etc.

Worst offenders:

ImageVenue.com
ImageBam.com
ImageHaven.com





If you are a member who posts pictures, you can help us mitigate this problem.

You have some free space here, at tFS to use to host your pictures. Just use the attachement feature (the little paper clip icon). However, once that runs out, you must either upgrade your account or host your images somewhere else to post here (the little photo icon).

Please host your images on a porn free site, if possible. Be aware that most "porn free" hosting sites do not allow any nudity, real, partial or even implied, so some images must be taken to a nudity allowed/adult hosting site, but please host everything else on a porn free site.


For help with finding a good popup blocker or to ask about which site is good to host images on, there is a discussion going on here.

Announcement: Rule Change regarding Hositng Sites ... to remove links to porn on tFS:


Effective immediately, we ask that members no longer host images at any site that allows porn or that has porn ads. Please find a completley porn free site to host your images.

We ask for your cooperation in helping us rid tFS of links to porn ... by hosting your images on a porn free site or by attaching them (see the paper clip icon, in "Go Advanced"). And you can help us by nicely directing other members to this Announcement if you see that someone is still hosting images on sites that allow porn and porn ads.

To assist our members, we have made arrangements for a hosting site ... at no charge ... that will accept tasteful fashion nudes but guarantees that there will be no porn allowed. http://fashionpix.org/

In the past we announnced that members may not use Image Shack to post nude, partialy nude or implied nude images because they do not allow any nudity in any form. If you do and post them here on tFS, they wil l ban us which will effect thousands of posts. That rule is still in effect.
We will not be removing any old images posted on the old sites ... but we will be contacting you if you continue to use those sites.

Here are the new rules:

1. Do not host any images (nude or otherwise) on any site that features porn, such as ImageBam, ImageVenue, or ImageHaven. This includes the "family safe" areas of thse sites because they still lead to porn ads in many instances.
2. You may host images on ImageShack, as long as they do not contain any nudity, even partial or implied. They will continue to ban us if you do so.
3. You may host any images, including tasteful nudes at http://fashionpix.org/
4. If you wish to post a nude image, you have 2 options:
For images containing nudity, you may still use the attachment feature here at tFS (the paper clip icon, in the Advanced Reply). Every member has a limited amount of space. If you run out, you may purchase a Premium Account upgrade and you will receive 10 times as much space to host images here, in addition to other enhancements.
Or, you may host them at http://fashionpix.org/. It's free. They will allow tasteful nudity, but will not allow porn in hosted images or in ads. You may use this as your primary image hosting site for all images, if you wish.
