It alll looks good.

I actually can't see the Members list for the group, so I can't tell if the person who reported it was a Member or not. If the group was "Closed" from the beginning then I think they would have had to be, unless you had settings so that non-members could read the forums.

Here's my personal take on why we even have a "mature content" setting for groups if in general groups are subject to site rules.

It may be that in the past, especially in the wild-west pre-legal days, that groups were considered not under the same rules as the rest of the site, but I wasn't here then so I don't really know.

I do know that when I became a mod (which was when the term "PG-13" was still part of general site rules and there was a laundry list of things that made an image not okay) I was specifically told that porn/hentai was not allowed in groups, but to "mark mature" for groups with lots of images that seemed pretty high on the "lewd" scale but short of being porn. They tended to feature scantily clad characters looking lascivious--but not fully nude characters and not explicit depictions of sex.

Some of those were images that might get deleted if posted in the forums at that time since the image rules were pretty strict.

Since that time, we've removed the detailed rules about images and removed the term "PG-13" from the rules because it's specifically a term that refers to movie ratings, and using it in some more casual way didn't seem right. We did still require that content remain appropriate for a wide range of users, but we started relying more on context for what was appropriate and what was not. This has resulted in slightly higher tolerance for lewd images or sex-related discussion in the forums, so there's now less of a distinction between what's okay in main forums and what's okay in groups.

For me, the main distinction is that having a main forum, or thread dominated by lewd images and remarks would create an inappropriate environment even if individual remarks or images are not all that bad taken individually. So we try to find a reasonable balance and curb things when we see things spiraling in an especially lewd, or vulgar, or gory way.

However, If you wanted an entire group, especially one marked as mature, or set as Secret, with a high level of that kind of content, that would be okay, as it suits the special interests of that group.

Does that make sense?

Group set back to secret

I think we should keep the lewder stuff for Discord though. To keep a happy balance and to avoid further reporting

On a side note, this group was made for mature user and if you are offended by that kind of thing, it's probably better that you left than report us again.

Removing suspicious member KayEldridge as their only activity was to join this club and 3 others. Zero posts on any forums on CR, pro made day after group was. If they turn out to be a geniue account and want back in, then I don't see a problem. But it seems very suspicious to me. It may be slightly paranoid I know lol.

We are clear Methos. It's prob best to post lewder stuff on discord though.
