Hi there denizens,
I wanted to make this topic to announce how we are going to be handling nudity in profile content and poses. I am more specifically referring to nipples, as I know it’s a contentious issue on Chatlands in general.
Nipples, regardless of whether they are male, female, or other, are not going to be acceptable in our 13+ rooms. Instead, we are restricting the usage of poses with nipples to 18+ rooms. The same goes for the forum; nipples will only be allowed to be shown in the mature galleries, and will require censors if posted elsewhere. They are prohibited from profile content and embedded images, and must be behind a filter if linked.
We are taking this stance due to the complexity of societal standards and laws in relation to the rights of those in the LGBTQIA+ community. We want everyone to be fairly represented, and while our policy may contradict that by way of disallowing male nipples, it is a small price to pay to ensure that nonbinary, trans, and other characters are treated on a fair level on Ourani.
We apologize for the inconvenience in regards to male nipples, but hope you understand our reasoning and why we must take this stance.
As quoted from our rules:

How these guidelines translate to the chat and forum
All rooms and forums that do not have the “[18+]” prefix are considered PG13 and follow the general guidelines. Mature and Adult content are prohibited in those areas.
Mature content is able to be shared and discussed freely in 18+ areas.
All adult content must be warned against before linking or embedding it, and if on the forum, must be spoilered using the [details] tag. For example:
[details="ADULT WARNING"]LINK or TEXT[/details]
luffy: warning, adult content! LINK
