Was slapped in the face with a nude pin-up on the homepage this morning. Have reported it to Craig, suggesting that all adult content like this that is allowed should have a mask over the default image and labeled/marked "ADULT."

There should be a requirement when listing that a check box should be marked by sellers of adult content, so that an automatic mask will be placed on that default image. Or the seller should be required to create their own masked image for each adult default image. Or those marked listings can be taken out of circulation on the marketplace page and only available through search. That way those images will not be seen by anyone and everyone on our marketplace homepage.

I have seen the masking done by another venue.

Oh no!  I haven't seen that yet, but it is a concern.  We don't want some customers running away the second they arrive! 😃  I think your ideas are perfect, though I am surprised the seller hasn't taken control of this him/herself already.

Thank you for sharing this. It's not pornography, but it is definitely erotica, adult material and unsuitable for children under the age of 18, even though it is vintage illustration. It is more than suggestion, it is nudity and very offensive. I also went to the shop and there is a lot of the same thing, much of it worse than what slapped me in the face this morning. I was appalled, actually. I did not want to share the shop name here in the forums out of consideration for the seller. 

When I run into this type of thing at other venues, I report it, even if the venue will allow it. I left Shop Handmade because after I reported to admin several times what was inappropriate content on the homepage, they did not address it. I did not want my customers visiting the site and seeing that type of thing. I was embarrassed at the possibility.

Yes, definitely erotica. I'm not a prude but these "pin up girls" are not all the suitable for the FP. Some people could be seriously offended.
