    Hm, shame. :( Apparently it is traffic > content (which is directly based on my opinion that I sided with J3scribe, but the relevant thread was deleted/moved to a non-visible forumsection).
    Well, let's see how it all plays out in the next couple of months...

    I think if you post a person regardless who it is or as known or not. The poster should say who she is. If she a UK star fine but how would some one from the US know that? Just an example and maybe someone who is famous in the US may not be somewhere else. I saw this in the wrestling discussion thread about Toni Storm. Someone who only watches the WWE may not know who she is unless they watched the Mae Young Classic. In fact that was the case, but someone like myself who follows more than just the WWE knows who she is. So if a thread was made of her, Put indy pro wrestler. She famous in some peoples eyes. Same with actresses the lesser known just say she this or that.

    I ain't reading this whole thread, but I can see most people missed my point about Maitland. This forum is categorized by content, not notoriety. Who cares if Maitland used to be on some stupid TV show? Now days she's venturing into soft porn and the forum has rules about where such content belongs irrespective of who the subject is. And furthermore, Maitland's content is from a paysite (Patreon), which involves a different set of rules. The nature of the content and its origin preclude it from Celebrity Extra. It's spelled out in this subforum's rules. The fact that she was on Nick at Nite is wholly irrelevant.

    Stormi Daniels is now a household name. Does that mean her porn videos and Twistys sets are now OK to post in the Celebrity Section? I don't think so.

    Why are you so against Maitland?

    The people want her in Celebrity Extra. Let her stay. Make an exception for her even if you think she does not belong here.
    This controversy has gone on long enough. Just let it go.

    Why would wanting her posted in the new subforum he created make him against Maitland? It would seem the opposite.
    But yes, it has gone on long enough.

    Either you didn't read what I wrote, or you're just obtuse. Either way it's irrelevant to me now.

    Yeah. I read the Crazy Days And Nights site and most of the blinds are about people I've never heard of, so it's tough to determine what counts as a celebrity or not.

    Also, quick question to the admins....Was this site down not long ago? I tried to browse here 15 minutes ago and it took a while to then load up a "not connected to host" page (that normally comes when a site's down) and my antivirus flagged up that it blocked a potential virus. Neither seems to be the case after trying again just now and being successful on my second attempt.

    Most of those "views" are from bots, not people.

    Yeah so many bots watch the videos and somehow give the person add revenue to the point where they all live like celebrities. If you really believe the top youtubers bot their content you don’t read into it very much. It’s pretty clear when something’s been botted and YouTube actively ban channels who bot (in fact they actively ban channels for no reason because it’s a shit platform) why even make content if you can just bot your video ? May aswell upload a black screen. Or if you can use bots why don’t we all just become youtubers since it’s free money ? And how are the bots wearing all the merch that they’re buying ?

    I can easily say that the biggest artists in the world are having bots get them streams and they’re lying about their album sales numbers and have it be the same as what you just said. But at the end of the day people are wearing their merch too and turning up at their concerts the same way hundreds of thousands of people go to meet and greets, the same way hundreds of thousands of people are positing content dedicated to them on social media and the same way people are paying stupid amounts of money to be anywhere near them

    Can of worms, Opened!
    The Maitland Ward thing .. Didn't have a clue who she was or what she was in till others here posted her details here (boy meets world) ..
    Now she is going down the Pr0n route does the Pr0n career negate her previous mainstream work?

    Here in the UK, like the US, we have a large number of Z list of celebrities due to the mass consumption of reality TV .. The likes of TOWIE Made in Chelsea, Geordie shore, Love island have given us multiple (new) people to post here at phun, beautiful women all who now have multiple Instagram and Twitter followers way into millions, Would they be considered celebrities in the US or say Japan? No probably not!
    Take Frenchie Morgan! (No please take her) She is or was not known here in the UK till programs like Botched and online sources like Daily Mail Online started featuring her..
    The world is a much different place than it was 10 years ago and social media (like it or not) plays a huge part in what is considered "celebrity' the lines have now been blurred considerably by it. Is some gym bunny with 1 million followers a celebrity? Is a Cast member of EastEnders with only 200k following them a celebrity? It's all subjective and down to the individual.
    Then you have the whole leaked pictures thing..
    I don't follow WWE so have no clue who most of these people are yet because of my job I know most of the cast of TOWIE personally ...
    I would be far more excited by leaked pictures of Chloe Lewis than I would be of say Rick Flairs daughter and that's the whole point of it all being subjective.
    Also are leaks considered Pr0n?
    Whatever the staff here decided please go with it and don't bitch and moan, the guys and girls do a great job here and recently it's been made a lot harder.
    All the best BB..

    I personally agree, I made the same point that her photos are now softcore porn so don't fit the nature of this board. I enjoy looking at alluring clothed celebrities, I choose not to visit the more lewd boards for this reason, so her presence is intrusive.

    Would you consider the leaks 'soft porn' ?

    Generally interested.

    No, because leaks don't have the same intent. Maitland is choosing to make risque videos for financial reward, whereas celebrity leaks are an unwanted voyeuristic window into their private life.
