Why does this keep popping up? I feel like this is the 3rd or so time that this has been voted on. Not everyone is going to be happy with the decision but at least keep it consistent
no offense but im so tired of this being a wolfhome discussion.

literally all people want are circles on chests whether theyre flat or not. theyre not wanting to put all 9 yards of the nipple being erect, stray hairs, the lil braille pieces they just want to add the areola while its still part of the nipple its literally just a discolored part of the boob why is it a big deal
if you wanna get to the pg13 side of things then why are any of the art or poses here even allowed to be naked in the first place. even if the animals could talk and could stand on two legs, they generally kept their animal appearance if they were to be naked (regular show, we bare bears, donald duck). all cartoons i can think of where animals took a more human appearance where they do here, they all wore clothes (brandy & mr. whiskers, arthur (granted this is rated g but still fits under my argument), zootopia, robin hood, goofy). there are some cases that they wear clothes and dont cover everything up like chester cheetah and tony the tiger but theyre CLEARLY in a highly cartoon-y style and we are more realistic here.

theres little to no new traffic here or on chat so i actually genuinely doubt karen is going to give a shit. the aim of this website has matured whether underdog or anybody else wanted it or not.

if yall wont budge, add a warning during registration that explicitly states the usage of nipples here if allowed. do yall not remember the pounce/play mating play?? rofl what parent wants to see their kids pouncing or playing another user to "mate" smh. why not trial an all nipples for a week or so and then discuss where to go from there? most likely nobody, not even children, will abuse it. they might be like O.O at first but when they learn nobody else gives a shit they probably wont either.

anyway im still in support of all or none.

i think everyone wants femme tiddie nipples allowed but fact of the matter is, underdog would have to approve that and im 99% sure he would shoot that down so thats not an option.

Its not a matter of if its fair or not for afab nipples to be disallowed when amab nipples are allowed. Im 100% sure we all agree that afab and amab should be able to show w/e within reason without causing a fuss.

But unfortunatly we live in a society where WH has legal rules it HAS to follow in order to stay operational. The site is pg-13 but you know kids lie about their age and im sure little Timmy's mom would have a few choice words for UD if she saw her baby looking at bewbs.

all im going to say on this is: don't try to blame the admins for this issue, or for it being brought up for discussion again.

it's the userbase who has brought this issue up again and again and there's still discourse over it. of course people are going to want to continuously talk about it. it's a controversial topic, it's not gonna go away unless everybody is either happy or no longer cares about the outcome.

the team already has to deal with enforcing it appropriately as everyone saw fit to vote. the fact that they are revisiting it to make sure it's working smoothly or not is important on their behalf of making sure they're involved in subjects we care about. admins aren't the ones who brought this up again, it was the userbase.

so if you're only here to comment on why it is even being brought up again in the first place, at least being a narrative as to why you feel the way u do because there's plenty of stress for it being brought up and you have to know that's not an easy choice on the team considering the nature of the topic. they just want to see that the rule still seems fair or just to the userbase and make sure this garbage hole is still being monitored efficiently

all nipples are allowed in the mature gallery - however, sexual content is not allowed, so basically, it's a gallery for artistic nudity only

the mature gallery was like a compromise to allow all nips for an 18+ audience, i think it spawned from these very nipple discussions

How do you know for a fact what people do and don’t go advocate for? People don’t have to post on here about their business since this site has no value in politics etc. It’s just a chatsite / forum. It’s not going to make a difference in politics or in anything. Our community is tiny, things in real life aren’t going to change by allowing nipples on a furry Forum / Chat.

Why should being tired of hearing about it ever prevent us from continuing to discuss societal problems? I'm glad it's coming up and I'm glad the staff is flexible enough to consider changing it again after the initial shitstorm.

Advocating isn't just about protesting in the streets and reposting Facebook memes in an echo chamber of like-minded individuals. It's about having open minded conversations with friends and coworkers, it's about allowing people to express their beliefs and, in turn, expressing your own. We won't enact change by being tired of hearing about it or demanding that other groups of people suffer just to make it even.

I advocate all the time by talking about controversial subjects with people who have opposing opinions. That's how things get done. There's a ripple effect. Change won't happen immediately, but the small difference spreads out and affects people.

Then like you said before advocate for it in the streets and everything, in real life. :)

Causing a legal issue that will possibly result in the site being shut down isn’t really gonna make a positive impact / change.

That’s great and good for you!
I do as well. :D

Hopefully in the near future our voices are heard and females in general won’t be so sexualized or objectified. And everyone on here can have their characters, etc..who regardless of gender can post things that have nips if they wish since it would no longer be a legal issue.
