    Good morning/afternoon/evening fellow GP @Member !

    We as the Guilty Pleasure's staff are always striving to make this a safe and comfortable environment for all of our writers, and as such, we are constantly updating our policies and procedures as we see a need for it. To get to the point, there are quite a number of members that do access our site in public, at work, or even just have children and family around where certain images are simply not appropriate. As we are an adult writing site and not an adult image site, it has been decided that our image policies needed to be updated to reflect this. Below are the new and current policies. If your current avatar, profile background, header, and/or signature no longer follows the image policy, you will have ONE WEEK to get them into compliance. After that point in time, you will start to receive consequences as listed in our site rules.

    1. Signatures can have one (1) GIF max: This is to prevent the site pages from loading slowly for other users.
    2. In all headers, profile backgrounds, avatars, and signatures, anything normally covered by a swimsuit (IE., chest, genitals, and buttocks) should have something in a non-sheer material over it.
    3. Nothing sexual or NSFW (Not Safe For Work): Hand holding, kisses, and hugging are allowed. However, no sexual activity or anything that could be construed as sexual activity in the image (dry humping or images cropped from pornography).
    4. No gore or anything that could cause anxiety to any members.
    5. Please keep personal pictures out of avatar and signature areas: This is for YOUR protection. You don't always know who you're talking to and what they are going to do with your images.
    6. Images in signatures shall have a maximum height of 300 pixels. If you need a picture resized, please just ask us. we'll be more than happy to either point you in the right direction or do it ourselves.

    Below are some examples of what we as staff are using as a general guideline as far as "swimsuit areas covered". Anything showing more than this could potentially be counted as against our new image policy.

    If you have any questions, concerns, or anything at all about the new policies, please do not hesitate to reach out to a staff member and ask! That is what we are here for! The best people to reach out to would be @Fauna Natura , the @Admin , or myself (@Awesomely Awkward Allie )

    Thank you all in advance for your cooperation!
