A few months ago, the publishers of Attitude contacted us. They were concerned that by posting scanned images of their magazine photoshoots (often on the day of publication) we might be taking away "paying customers" who might otherwise buy the mag to see the pics.
We agreed on a solution being to not allow pictures from the current issue. This way, buying the issue on the newsstand would be the only way to see these pics.
Now.. Attitude are still concerned that people might not be buying the magazine.. but instead are waiting a month to see the pics appear on fmforums.
Due to this concern, and as we do not wish to harm the sales of one of the few remaining gay magazines, we have decided to prohibit ALL pictures from Attitude magazine on fmforums.
From 1st July, Attitude magazine pictures will be added to the blacklist. They must not be posted. Any posted will be removed.
We regret this decision - as over the years we have shared some truly great pics from the mag - but it is a situation we need to clear up now in order to protect Attitude and our forums for the future.
We hope you understand. We never like banning pictures, but sometimes we really have no other option.
There is an open topic in GOSSIP where any comments can be posted.
