Stupid question, but where exactly is the location of this subforum? Because I can't seem to find it. :(
The NSFW part of the forum is unseen to any who arent given clearances by staff to enter. The rules are you must cross a posting threshold and make a thread here requesting entry.

We have various areas in NSFW politics and creative but people mainly go there to access the complaint about other forums thread and Sietch affairs thread.

I did create a thread there 20 minutes ago requesting entry. What's the posting threshold for this?

It's about 15-50 post if my memory serves me correctly, you meet the threshold most certainly. Keep in mind however that the Admins have to manually approve your request and it may be awhile before one logs in and notices it.

Let's face it; former owner Zoe's attempt to provide a space where we can all post milk-toast erotic content was a failure long before she "left", and now it's just sad. There has been a grand total of two works of erotic fiction posted (one in 2019, and another in 2020), one recruitment thread for an RP that never went anywhere, and a couple of image threads who's combined contents would barely fill half an issue of Playboy (setting aside that most of the images contained therein would have probably been rejected as submissions for simply being too tame). All in all, the only thing people use it for is that one thread where we complain about other forums.

I think we need to have a serious discussion as to what the NSFW subforum is even for; because as it stands, it's just being used as a place where we can hide interforum drama. Personally I think we either need to dramatically loosen restrictions on what content can be posted (basically emulating QQ), or abandon the conceit that the NSFW subforum is primarily for pornographic content altogether, and just say that it's for marginally more offensive content than what is appropriate to post elsewhere on the forum in general. Either may encourage more people to post there, though the latter would also probably require rebranding.
Whenever I see a forum that is NSFW my first thought is porn or maybe people posting their conspiracy ramblings. I can't say I know what is on that part seeing as I don't recall ever bothering to look at that part but if I had any say I would say to post stories that are 18+ or photos that are of a nature that would fit with anything else. I have seen a fair number of things that I would have been more than happy not knowing was a thing or finding by means of a 50/50 Reddit game.

I would also think about asking people who make more adult stuff to join the forum and post their works on that as well.
