I'll never see it again as I made sure to remove it from ever popping up again.

 

How did you do that?

 

 

The "clicking on OK I am an adult" is stored in a cookie.

If you clean up cookies (from LoversLab) it will come back.

I know pop ups in adult sites are the legal deal on the internet.

But I was wondering... do they ever work?

Being a hyper-hormoned and horny teenager, you're bound to look for sex until you get it. Pop ups dont have the power to scare you.

But that's not LL's fault. That's silly internet's laws fault. Not that I actually care, I think it's cruel to torment a horny teenager with, ignorance and grounding. We've all been there, haven't we?

But alas, LL is now abiding that law so that should buy some points right?

Did nothing special just ad blocked the pop then repeated for the overlay I use it a lot for unspoilered big pictures and video's the stuff in peoples qoute's that didn't spoiler the unspoilered stuff that they quoted colored fonts.

 

OK, you are real-time changing the actual HTML content with some tool.

Like AdBlock does.

That's what I suspected. I suppose that method wouldn't work if every page on LL checked for that particular cookie before displaying the page.

 

I personally like Nexus' approach to hide adult content, if you really want to see them you'd enable it yourself by agreeing to it, from your settings/preferences. This immediate pop up makes me feel like I'm visiting a stupid porn site. I consider LL as a modding site that includes adult content, not a porn site. I'm also a bit worried that becoming a self-proclaimed porn site, might make the site difficult to access in the long run, as porn filters may start to include it by default.

Loverslab has been a self proclaimed porn site for years, it's nothing new. Hell, porn site is likely putting it lightly at this point, I'd more specifically classify LoversLab as a niche adult fetish site now.

 

The only change recently is that I've finally decided to take some extra measures to help ensure the sites continued existence. Risking legal trouble on my self or total loss of the site at the very least; neither option is even remotely worth the risk.  Plus I promised some people I'd add an age gate long ago once the forum software update happened, which did happen but was a complete shit show, so gone ahead and implemented it now.

 

The age gate was added quickly and tiredly the previous night, as evidenced by the previous typo of "18 or old." As of tonight however I've upgraded it so that the age gate popup is set to only show up once every 2 days for users who aren't logged in, assuming they have a modern browser, else it'll show up anytime they open a new tab of the site for the first time. If you remain logged in to the site normally, you shouldn't see the popup ever again from today onward, assuming you don't ever logout and/or delete your browser's cache or cookies. I may be bias, being the one personally at risk, but that seems absolutely reasonable and unobtrusive from all reasonable points of view to me. 

 

The difference between here and The Nexus's method, is here hiding adult content to guests means hiding essentially 100% of the content considering the sites few available advertiser options. Even if you were to ignore the ads or I was able to find one willing deal with a site that's a mix of both adult and non-adult, that still realistically means hiding 90% of content. And since loverslab is entirely forum based with lax rules regarding avatar and signature content, hiding so much of the content is an unreasonable ask just to avoid being labelled a porn site. Hiding all that content behind a registration would without question kill the site entirely. There is simply no built in reliable way to discern that remaining "safe for work" 10%.

 

For the past few years or so I've planned on developing a separate site I could transition LoversLab to in order to be the kind of mod site it currently is, but in a more general sense rather than a blatant 18+ only site. I still plan on and hope to do so eventually, it's just been a struggle to give that development any serious amount of work between maintaining the site, my own mods, and dealing with some personal issues all at at the same time.

Is SJW starting to infect this site too?

 

It is not about "SJW", it is about keeping the site on the safe side of the law, since many countries require an age gate for sites with adult content.

Personally, I prefer having the age gate to the site being forced down because of legal issues.

 

(Besides, the whole "SJW" triades are getting a bit old by now)
