    Okay, I just read the thread by Shaggy and he said that some female members on her were bothered with the pics. And he said that all my BOTD posts are cluttering the forum. So as a community on here, we must decide what we want. I can either keep doing it, or stop it. It does'nt matter to me, I just started it because everyone seemed to like them, but I was wrong I guess it was the opposite /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif So here it goes:
    The results of the poll in a few days will see if I continue or not.

    I guess I can understand that some people would not like having the BOTD posts around. It is not "tech", "K5" or "wheeling" related.

    However, I have noticed how much attention the post draws. Already it seems to be a little bit of a tradition here, and they ARE properly labeled that they are not kid or work friendly. In my opinion, with that disclaimer, anyone who views the thread does not have the right to complain about it unless it is graphic, offensive or physically unappealing. Having said that, pics you post are not pornographic, explicit or offensive in my opinion (some of the BOTD's are not quite up to par though). They are much less explicit and revealing than the British newspapers I read at work (Page 3 girls and all).

    A waste of space? Some would agree. Maybe the host of this site could enlighten us as to how much server space your posts waste. A waste of time looking at your post? Quite possibly, but then why are people opening the post and wasting their time looking at your space wasting post?

    I say keep it.

    I doubt the females here have a problem with the BOTD, I'd really like to hear from them. They strike me as the kind that understand women choose to pose for such things and they don't get objectified by our drooling but whatever. Only female opinion I've heard about BOTD was my girl and she said she doesn't think most of them are that good looking /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif. OH and I really don't look at them. I check them daily for like a second just cause well I check pretty much every thread around here.

    If they go away I have no reason to ever log in on this site /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif







    j/k actually I enjoy them and I think they fall within the guidelines Steve set when they first started. If some of the women are being offended here then that needs to be taken into consideration. Based on the voting so far, I think the majority is going to say keep em /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    It's sorta like watching TV. If you don't like what's on a particular channel, then don't watch it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif The gals can post a Hunk Of The Day if that want. It won't bother me, 'cause when I read the title of those posts, I'll skip right on down the page! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    You were reprimanded when you posted a couple very nice pictures and have since reverted to nice pictures. Keep up the good work.

    exactly! If something offends you then quit reading the thread. As of cluttering up the forum, there are other posts on here that waste more space than this one. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif Maybe make this post stay at the top and only steve could post to it? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif That way you only have on post for all of the BOTD.

    exactly why there in the lounge, anyone who wants pure tec should never go in the lounge so as not to waste there time with the non k5 fluff and therefor don't even know about the botd.

    Just keep on keeping on. There is a reason for this forum and post like the BOTD, jokes and what not is just what Steve intended it for. So unless Steve or one of the other Moderators tells You to put a stop to it then it's cool. Don't let others tell You how to spend Your time here on CK5 when You are a paying Member.
    I don't have a problem with the BOTD I just skip over most of them. Pretty simple.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    For the record, I did not say that. I skip over the BOTD posts, as far as I'm concerned you can post them until Steve says you can't. It's not like it's porno or anything, I just don't get the need for it. That's just my personal feeling about it though.

    I think it's funny that all of a sudden BOTD is a tradition on CK5 when it hasn't even been going on for very long.

    I check the BOTD posts twice daily... just to make sure I didn't miss one. Whenever I see a new picture up it reminds me to vote. So I guess while it may take up space and offend some people it does get one more vote on "Top4x4sites" for CK5. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
