RE: NSFW-Alexa Nova - Owen Gray - POV

in #porn3 years ago

Hello @alexanova, welcome to steemit (beta 0.16.0) - Steemit is currently not set up to properly facilitate pornography due to the EULA stating users has to be 13 years old to join steemit, which has sparked a lot of debates that the community is eager to solve so that steemit becomes a platform for everyone from everywhere.

I welcome you to take part in the discussion on SteemSpeak Radio and also look over the following proposal and consider supporting it.

Proposal #1: How to accommodate adult-content on Steemit

Support #1: Porn on Steemit - How to deal with it?

Sincerely and in all friendliness
@fyrstikken & @fyrst-witness

Steemit is currently not set up to properly facilitate pornography

That is not an accurate statement.

People are encouraged to use the Steem Blockchain for any sort of legal content that they wish.

We will, of course, implement various features on the steemit.com website to allow users to curate and filter what they wish to view. That said, anyone can and should post whatever they want—right now.

I am glad to see you in the comments, @sneak - But Steemit.com End User License Agreement/terms of service states that you have to be 13 years to join steemit.com.

So I am glad to hear that the DEV-team will implement various features for SafeMode on/off and better categorization.

But DO NOT FORGET to make the 18+ EULA so we don´t have to suffer some stupid legal matters due to the current EULA being set at 13 Years of age.

Steem on :)

That is a different matter related to a US federal law around service providers storing personal information of young children, and is unrelated to the content of the site. We didn't pick that figure.

The EULA of the steemit.com website has no bearing on the public Steem Blockchain or the content that users post into it. steemit.com is not the only way to post.

@sneak, do you have an approx ETA on when the changes will come into effect?

is "2017" too approximate for you? :D

It depends on a number of factors which aren't clear right now (we're on a hiring spree at the moment) but specific features will be better scheduled in the new year. Look for our company (Steemit Inc), platform (the Steem Blockchain), and product (steemit.com) 2017 Roadmap that comes out on or before 1/1. It clears up a lot of the confusion over what and why we're up to.

Little features like this have taken a backseat to our huge, user-growth initiatives thus far, and will probably continue to do so until either a) they are existential threats (occasional porn isn't, yet) or b) we have enough operational bandwidth to both make the site compelling/addictive and implement all the nice-to-haves like better display preferences.

We're listening, and we're on it.

@sneak: 2017 is fine :) I love what you guys are doing and thrilled that you are listening to us.

Would you give a vote to @fyrst-witness as well, my witness is DEDICATED to Steemit promotion and that is all the money will be used for. I am currently #52 and would like to be #25.

Merry Christmas @sneak - give a hug to @ned and @dantheman from me. :)
