    Hey everyone,

    Most of you already saw the outcome of the poll, but for clarity: The next vault will consist of the theme nudity!

    What does this mean?
    - Only shots are allowed if they have some form of nudity in them.
    - 2 shots per uploader, 3 for contributors.
    - Best rated shots win prizes.
    - 1 shot per movie.
    - All the usual rules for shots and movies count, so no shorts/direct to video/TV-releases and no porn. Shots must come from original DVD only.
    - Don't post any shots that might fit the vault in NS, while the uploading phase is running.

    Uploading will start at: Aug 16, 2013 18:30 and end at: Aug 23, 2013 18:29, after which solving will take 2 weeks.

    I can't wait to see what you guys and girls come up with! :)

    What about shots like that : http://whatthemovie.com/shot/235551 ("naturists"), http://whatthemovie.com/shot/238260 ("nudes") http://whatthemovie.com/shot/233952 ("I'll be bare naked") ?

    "Only shots are allowed if they have some form of nudity in them"
    why ? I think that Nezquivoque shots are great.
    Because we'll see many breasts or penis, but these are more original.

    Because the theme that was voted on was "Nudity", not "Shots that don't contain nudity but can be uploaded anyhow".

    IMHO, when you have a topic, you have to find snapshots related with the topic and not only shots that contains the topic.

    It would be a shame to loose snapshots like Nezquivoque's ones which are much more original.

    IMHO you are talking nonsense.

    And you know what, you guys are NEVER happy. We pick a topic, it's wrong, you pick a topic, it's wrong. So you know? I hereby quit all vault-related things, we'll see if I will compete, but I certainly will not waste anymore of my time organizing or handing out rewards.

    Didn't mean to create such a fuss.

    Obviously, I personally see these shots as fitting, otherwise I wouldn't have thought of them.

    The presence of captions and inscriptions in an image is not aimless, they're a visual element, participating in the meaning of an image just as any other. Not mere letters floating unpurposely. So yes, I do see nudity in these shots, and I do consider the word “nude” just as fitting into a “nudity” theme as a piece of flesh.
    I also see how it's not self-evident, otherwise I wouldn't bother asking, but I still think that it's worth debating.

    Now if you just want shots that fit the wtm nudity tag, you should specify so, because you have to admit that the formulation “ if they have some form of nudity in them” is a bit vague and can lead to various interpretations (not only in terms of human nudity. A landscape, a room, a wall, can all be very naked as well).

    Speaking of humble opinions, though I adore seeing naked men and women just like the vast majority of human beings, I also like a little room for intepretation.

    This is not complaining, this is discussion.

    Just my opinion: I really like your shots Nezquivoque but maybe it's because i'm french and i can understand the texts on those shots which is not the case for everybody here unfortunately. That is my concern about this kind of shots otherwise i like this interpretation.

    But can't this easily be solved with a translation given by the uploader, like you see on the game every now and then ? It's not like the whole contest is going to be made of images like that, they're still fairly rare. There might be none. It's just about having this possibility

    Well the shot's itself are not my taste but I think they fit with the theme.

    @Asmodai excuse me but I don't think you really understand what's happening here.
    Even if 90% of the users vote for nudity there are still 10% of the users who can say their opinion.
    It's just humans nature to try to get what they wan't.
    Beside that argueing is not the same as complaining why don't you just argue in a polite way like all other users above did?

    If people are afraid to say their opinion because of posts like that the community dies.

    I don't understand why you become angry like that.
    I was not complaining. I was just giving my opinion.

    I didn't vote for nudity, but I don't care, I'm happy to participate to a vault wathever the topic is.

    It was just my point of view about the meaning of the topic.

    Just a question about Vaults/Contests in general:
    If I have had 5 shots of the same movie accepted to Feature Films, can I still upload shots from that movie to a contest? Or is it 5 shots per movie in total(FF+V)?

    Yes, you can. If there are 5 shots of you in archive, you can no longer upload shots through NS, but vault/title/character shots and awesome uploads are still fine.

    Oh, but if you awesome a shot before you reach 5 in archive, it DOES count for this limit. So if you post 5 shots through NS and then awesome another: all fine. If you awesome one first, you can only do 4 more through NS.
