Rules clarification on uploading models


(Tidiestflyer) #1

You see I had a model deleted recently and I was just a tad confused on whats not allowed to be uploaded.

The email stated these things arent allowed to be uploaded:
“pornographic, dehumanizing, threatening, harassing, libelous, hate-oriented, harmful, defamatory, racist, xenophobic, or illegal”

Just to be safe I’ve gone onto another model of mine and marked it as age restricted.

I’m gonna assume it falls under pornographic since the model did have some cleavage… To what extent is a model considered “Pornographic”? (If possible I wanna make sure thats what it was. I just got a slew of reasons why it was removed.)

Also. Is it alright for me to re-upload this model if I mark it as age restricted?

The original art I modeled it from is from this twitter post if you want to verify what the model looked like

Thank you for your time.

Hi @tidiestflyer,

Thanks for your post and I hope I can clarify the situation for you.

Short answer: cleavage is allowed / erotica is not. In this case the exagerrated proportions and the fact that the model was not labelled as restricted lead us to remove it from our platform.

Obviously artistic content exists on a spectrum and it is rarely a simple decision to remove 3D models from our site. It can be difficult to administer rules and restrictions on what is essentially down to personal preference: What is considered unacceptable to one person may not affect another in the same way. That said, we will always err on the side of safety and conservatism.

The guidelines and rules for restricted and unacceptable content are always evolving as we see different content added to Sketchfab. Our goal is not to hamper artistic creativity but to make SKetchfab a welcoming and safe space for everyone.
