Why "No contest pictures or contest tans"?

May 07, 2020 - permalink
I think this rule is greatly exaggerated. There is nothing wrong with a photo from a contest, many of them have almost no contest tan, and they look great.

Mostly because they're very same-y and I would worry that if the rule were removed there would be too many.

I don't mind a select few per model.

Honestly, I'm pretty lenient on the "contest tan" part, especially as many women also get natural tans and it can be hard to differentiate, I usually only remove those if they're also mediocre otherwise.  The stage photos part I'm more strict on, since there are dedicated galleries for those elsewhere with hundreds of photos of each woman.  I only really make exceptions in the cases of old classic female bodybuilders from decades ago where a few stage photos may be all that's available, and individual exceptional shots.

I don’t know if certain moderaters monitor certain users, but I’ve posted pics of women with contest tans and some of them are taken down right away. Shortly thereafter, someone uploads the same photo and it stays up for good. Let’s face it, almost all women in the pump room have contest tan on to some degree, but it’s very subjective. I’ve also posted pictures of some women that I thought had too much contest tan, but I posted because there was another photo up of her with the same tan from the same contest. Mine gets taken down normally. I don’t complain, as I don’t want to rat another user out and get their pic taken down. Once again, very subjective.

In essence, you are not allowed to upload contest photos, unless you are the moderator. This is for example:

">Ariel Conetta

That pic of Ariel Conetta is literally the only photo I've seen of her biceps from the back, and there isn't much of her on the site to begin with, hence why I posted it. I could point you to dozens of pics from non-moderator users that are still up for similar reasons, but you'd just ignore that because you want to feel aggrieved.

I always thought this rule was to mitigate copyrighted material, because most of the professional contest pictures are always from photographers that watermark their pictures and sell them (except for a few excerpts for the models).

You're right, it is a subjective rule. It is not a rule that is written in stone, as it appears in the "strongly discouraged" section of the upload rules. Some of mine have been removed by other mods. Each mod has to interpret this rule in their own way. For me, if it is a photo just copied straight from npcnewsonline, rxmuscle, or any other existing contest photo site, I'll typically delete it, for the reason Chainer mentioned above. On the other hand, if it happens to be a unique, high quality photo and she doesn't already have much content on the site, I'll leave it alone.

I agree about removing contest pics from women who already have thousands of casual flexing images on the site. But it should be allowed for models who barely have an active instagram or flexing photos avaialable. And every small bit of footage / picture of them flexing is a gift.
