Im pretty sure it is. When I uploaded these one adult only images on imagevenue, I never saw the porn iframe.. sometimes i'd see a text ad advertising one (but thats different) but it very well may of been.

Unfortunately, there is very little we can do about how privately-owned hosting sites present the images they host, just as there is little we can do if privately-owned sites prohibit any nudity at all, without regard to the intent of its presentation.

tFS is not able to guarantee that all material appearing here is suitable for all viewers. The question of minors being exposed to harmful material is the responsibility of their parents, just as it is at any other web site, on television, and in the streets of every town and city.

We will continue to seek answers to the question of how we can present relevant fashion imagery which may include the presentation of the human body without also opening the gates to those images designed to appeal solely to prurient interests.

they must be running out of money ... it's surprising they couldn't find legitimate advertisers though.

^they have to earn money from somewhere...imagevenue is fantastic in the way that after you clicked on the tumbnail, when the pic is showing & then if you click on the pic, a browner window is opened for you with a porno site, how stupid is that?!

Uhhh, excuse me, but Adult advertising is just as legitimate as anything else. It's a multi-billion dollar business.

This all goes back to previous discussions about third party hosting vs. requiring members to use the attachments feature, or TFs creating it's own image hosting. The discussions had to do with image retention and archiving and the fact that many images are purged periodically from other fashion and third party hosting sites.

There was mention of these ads only being on images titled 'adult content' but they have been attached to some pretty un-adult editorials

I have also noticed the same problem on other forums. Very sad especially when children could be using the links, but the answer is simple;
USE TINYPIC for displaying images.
It is the only company I ever use and they stay away from adult advertising.
You can find them here
http://tinypic.com/

The better answer is to use your attachments here at tFS.

Yes Echoes I agree, but I meant for those who like to use an external imaging company, that is a good one to use.

Attachments are good but many members cant pay for membership to have a large attachment space...

Its really sad both imagevenue and imagebam started to advertise porn...Gotta find another image host...that doesnt advertise porn but allows to host a tasteful nudity image or very sexy image....

I really hate ImageBam.

I opened a picture of Coco Rocha from her thread and it was used by ImageBam and the nastiest photos were above it.

Like naked men and women doing things to one another at the same time.
Sometimes I even get pop-ups from IB with videos of this stuff playing.

I mean I dont have a problem with what people do behind closed doors, but I don't want to see it plastered all over my screen when I'm looking at something the complete opposite of it.

Was it a NSFW image of Coco? When things are uploaded as NSFW on ImageBam then NSFW ads are also shown.
