    Hey, could you add in a rule to expressly forbid the use of sexual content?

    This is a photography contest, not a marketing contest. The focus here is about setting up a perfect shot, and the "selling it" theme is meant as to get folks to set up a shot focused on an item as if it were presented for sale. NOT about really trying to get people to buy stuff. And throwing boobs into a picture is not about photography skills, it's about distracting a consumer to get their attention.
    It defeats the idea of the contest if some one or two guys just slap an attractive figure into their shot and get all of the votes that way. And furthermore, I love to see the beautiful and skilled photographs people take in this contest. I don't want to shuffle through a bunch of mild pornography.

    Surely this is covered by the site rules already..?

    I'm inclined to agree generally with this - although I think it's unlikely that the people who vote in these contests are actually so shallow that seeing a pair of breasts would make them vote for a poor entry...

    I agree... but with the caveat that nudity != pornography; unless one regards a woman breastfeeding in public, for example, to be pornographic...

    ...plus, there're things you could do with a carrot, a boiler-suit and a balaclava that would make your eyes water just to think about...

    Fatgav pretty much covered it And I hope the people participating in these contests are more artistically inclined than that. Plus, there is no prize, so doing so just to get votes really has nothing for it. Unless winning and deciding what theme we shall do next is that important to them.

    OK, here are my thoughts on things:

    1. No Photoshop. So no putting text with slogans or whatever over the photo. If you want text to go with your photo, add a caption in the text of your post.
    2. If you want to make up a product, fine. So boobs in a can, provided you aren't breaking site rules, would be fine. No photoshopping your final image though.
    3. Regarding sex, nudity, and porn. The forum has specific rules about this. Obey the 3DBuzz forum rules and there won't be any problems. Given the fuss that was made in a previous contest over the topic of love, I am reluctant to place any extra restrictions on entries. Basically, if you are genuinely unsure whether your entry breaks the forum rules, then you should probably find something else.

    I'm gonna put that post in the first post, so there's an easy place to find it. Answers most questions people can ask.
