Arimecibo cleanup

     In conjunction with the Website format change, several photos on the Arimecibo Island Forum were removed or replaced by noquiexis. Some topics were so heavily dependent on the photos that they were relegated to the Trash Bin1. Black "X"es indicate a photo link that was already bad, not something that I did.

     Some off-site links were removed. Those links that were not removed have warnings posted near them. I undoubtedly missed a few photos and links. Members are cautioned not to use the warning as an excuse to post links to explicit material.

     A list of changes is in the Trash Bin1. Fair warning of this format change was posted here and at Our Doll Community. Some members cleaned up their own Arimecibo Island Forum posts.

     In the next few days I will begin cleaning out the nude and / or sexually suggestive photos from the Arimecibo Island Gallery. Some members have already cleaned their own albums. If possible, I will set members albums to "Me Only" viewing2, rather than delete the photos. This will give those members more time to clean their own albums. Eventually, all nude and / or sexually suggestive photos will be removed from the Arimecibo Island Gallery.

1   The Trash Bin is only accessible by Administrators and Moderators. If any member wants a text copy of a topic that was relegated to the Trash Bin (to post on another doll-related forum), PM noquiexis for that text. Be advised that these topics will not languish in the Trash Bin forever.

2   Most users' albums were reconfigured to the "Me Only" view setting. You may not see your own albums until you are logged into the gallery. Once you have removed the nude and / or sexually suggestive photos from your albums, you may reset viewing to "Everybody". As with the forum posts, these pictures will not remain forever. It would be wise to delete such material yourself.

Gallery Update

     On 12 June 2020, I removed several photos from the Arimecibo Island Photo Gallery. Members were notified of this change in January 2020. The Website format change was announced in November 2019. Members had more than enough time to clean up their own albums.

     Anyone who is angry or annoyed by this action is welcome to express their grievances, but this will not change the website format. Those who feel strongly are welcome to delete their albums and / or delete their forum account.

     Photos that were removed included those that show any female nipple, any genitalia, a bare butt, or any photo with a hand on the crotch. A few photos were removed because they were sexually explicit.

     Any attempt to replace the photos that were removed, or any attempt to upload similar photos to the gallery will result in that gallery account being deleted. Any attempt to post any such picture on the forum will result in that forum account being deleted.

     My subscription to the current web host runs out in November 2020. It is my intention to move the entire www.arimecibo.com website to another web host on or before then. I will not be bound be the requirement for that web host to allow adult content. I intend that this entire website be viewable by anyone, regardless of age, moral convictions, or religious convictions.

My album is Me only. It looks like some photos 'got the ax' anyway. Mox nix.

     I do not know what 'standards' other web hosts might use. When I find another web host, I do not want to be denied access because of any one photo. Sadly, some of the photos that were cut are among my favorites.

     I do know that some people have not received email notifications of PMs because their ISP has this web host (WebHostingPad) blacklisted. I can only assume that WebHostingPad hosts porn sites, although I never asked.

     Album owners are welcome to modify their album properties to the "Everyone" view if they so desire.
