    Hey guys,
    I haven't been a round in a while and when I typed www.thephotoforum.com the first thing I see is a nude woman..... At home this would be no big deal, but at work, with sensitive people around and I really don't want to get accused of browsing porn or sexual harrasment.

    The suggestion I would give on this is when the contest winner is perhaps put a warning and a link to the picture or move it a ways down the screen with a warning.... the key here is a warning and the ability to bypass it if we are browsing to this wonderful awesome amazing educational site in a place were there could be the possibility of getting in major trouble for a picture such as this.... (it is a great pic by the way...)

    Or, you could add /forum to the url and bypass the main page altogether.

    I had no idea that pic was there, I don't think I've been to the main page (until just now) for 8 or 9 months.

    Sorry about that.

    Its a great point and I didn't even think about it. The image has been changed to a link to the photo, along with a "may not be work safe" message.

    Thanks for the suggestion and sorry if it caused anyone any trouble!

    No trouble, just something I noticed...... (fortunely before anyone else saw it :) )

    Its funny, I rarely look at the home page, so I never even thought about it (even though I was the one that posted it there). :roll:

    Its a shame that you even have to think that way, considering what a great photo it is...but such is life!

    Thats what I always do. This site is bookmarked with the '/forum' tail.
    I haven't had any problems yet re. the homepage. But was cautious when ppl were around!

    It sure is an awesome photo, but ppl around may not be all that awesome always :)
