Anonymous asks: Why do you keep your site worksafe when it’s all about a hentai?

Ask me a question at ask.fm

The reasons include hosting regulations and a desire to widen my audience as much as possible.

My previous web hosts restricted explicit content. Although the translation patcher programs contained data for explicit images, they were not obvious or accessible until they were installed. I was able to link to websites with non-safe graphics as long as they were clearly marked, and I was able to promote Fuguriya’s work without using any such images myself for several years. Earlier this year, I transferred to a company that offers unmanaged VPS hosting, where restrictions on adult content are much more lax. I am now able to feature explicit material freely, and in fact I do have non-worksafe content on my personal blog here.

However, because I have managed to build an audience for an adult-oriented series without using its main draw for this long, I hesitate to change this unless my audience expressly approves of it. A sudden change in this policy can have unexpected reactions and would limit my ability to rank on search engines. Approval from my readers would have to justify the impact of the latter, as I am making a concerted effort to rank for the de facto English name “A Kiss For The Petals” as a search term.
