Rule Question

    I'm not sure if this is the appropriate forum to ask this question on, if I should be PMing a mod, or something else... I'm wondering what's up with the no barefeet in photos (and I assume bt extention videos) rule?
    I have some really great photos and videos from dog events I would love to share but I'm rather opposed to shoes when I feel them unnecessary which often leaves me barefoot in the grass handling my dog. Because I'm visably without shoes does that mean I can not post them up?

    I asked this question too! Its because the Admin has a thing against feet, so it became a forum rule :lolbangtable:

    Because toes are gross.

    You'll hate me should our paths ever cross at an event then :lolbangtable:
    That seems an odd reason for a rule though. Suppose I can't post up my wall climb and lure corse photos because I think shoes are gross.

    :lol: it's not my rule! But I definitely agree with the rule. I don't even understand the concept of "cute" toes. Hahaha

    It kind of leaves me stuck not being allowed to post any photos of my dog that I happen to be it though- I just don't have a reason to wear shoes 99% of the time, soooo I don't.
    My feet get me from point A to point B, I've never been concerned if others find my feet or even my face cute or gross haha.

    It's not the focus point by any means. My dog is doing awesome stuff, I happen to be attached to her by a leash, and I just so happen to not be wearing shoes where as someone else might have boots, chucks, or whatever the hip shoe thing is these days :grin:

    Can't you just crop the bottom off the photo so your feet aren't showing?

    Oh I'll put a little blur out box like they do for movie nudity. Maybe black bars with silly slogans. :grin:
    I wasn't aware feet were so offensive. :lol:

    Well to be fair the barefoot hippie type that also happens to be doing ADBA events is probably limited to myself and my boyfriend :lol:
    This is probably the first and possibly only time anyone has been horribly limited on what they upload because of it.

    lol but the rule isn't even just about bare feet. It also mentions no open toed shoes. As a super fashion conscious girl I happen to wear a lot of open toed shoes come summer ... peep toes, strappy high heeled sandals, etc. Does cute painted toes count as toe coverage? muahahaha

    Although I rather like the idea of SevenSins photoshopping fuzzy slippers into the photos also.

    Lol this is so funny. I will be honest feet gross me out even if they are necessary lol. I do not beleive in shoes in the house because all the dirty things they pick up outside I do however have house shoes that never go outside and when I don't have my house shoes on I wear socks. I don't like things to touch my feet because having dirty feet makes me feel dirty. When I do have bare feet and I step on something I will say I feel like princess and the pea it hurts so much because I rarely have bare feets.


    Seriously though to the rule it's not something that will get you in trouble to break but it's more of a eww factor.
