Hey, I'm not arguing that there aren't nearly enough mods. But the reason they aren't proactive isn't because it's policy or anything, it's just because there aren't enough of them to cover everything.
no offence, but... That IS because of gaiaonline's policy. They should employ moderators instead of recruiting volunteers. It is gaia policy to have a certain amount of moderators per forum category.
Back in 2007 there were nude drops too, however they appeared far less frequent. Nowadays you can find at least 10 topics with the words Nude and Drop in it per day. Curiocity makes people visit those threads. And some (not all) contain sexually explicit or even pornographic materials.
I know that the CB and GD were created to discuss things, but i fail to see why pictures of genitalia contribute to such a discussion and what educational value it has for younger teens. Also the descriptive content where no pictures are used, but the description could have been taken out of some sleezy adult magazine (you know the ones nobody ever reads wink ) Topics about masturbation should exist only if they have an educational value. But i fail to see what more than 500 topic titles containing "jacking off" contribute to that educational value.
Furthermore... i believe that sexual education is one of the responsibilities for the parents, not for a website that claims to uphold a PG-13 rating.
I think one of the big problems is that the moderators ARE volunteers--they are unpaid, receiving only a nominal sum of Gc or Gg each month. Employ the moderators (pay them in US currency) and maybe the job would be more thoroughly and rapidly done.
Moreover.... if some teenager under the age of 18 would post his/her naked body on the forums, gaiaonline can be sued for spreading childporn on its site.
