Kayo, are direct links to period-related videos allowed in the photos section or elsewhere? These would be direct links that when clicked would go to directly and allow the viewer to watch the clip without the hassles of registering first or paying or anything else similar.
I've got a good collection of links like this I'd like to share, mainly vids at xHamster but a few other sites as well. All vids feature models over 18 and otherwise meet all other TOS's here. Please let me know, Thanks!
You can post a link as ordinary html... but... having already run afoul of the TOS I'm really hesitant to endorse that. How's that for a diplomatic way of saying "please don't for now". The "Over 18" doesn't mean much, the TOS covers anything "in bad taste" and that is totally up to them as far as what that means. Quote from the TOS:
18. OBJECTIONABLE CONTENT

Eleventhson and Kayo, why not just allow for the link to be posted in plain text on the forum without any parsing that makes it a hyperlink. I would be surprised if ProBoards didn't have a "Make Plain Text" option that could be used so that links aren't automatic, and anyone who uses on them has to physically copy and paste them so there can't be any "accidental" clicking. While I understand the need to avoid direct links for now, I do miss some of the links that were possible on DCJ and SFF. I'm not sure if this would make a difference, and I understand wanting to lay low for awhile after what happened, but I'm just putting this idea out there in case it makes some small difference. (If allowed, the worst having plain text "links" would do is require someone to exert the extra energy in their fingers to copy/paste instead of click, which doesn't seem like an unreasonable request.)
