Gonna have a candid conversation here, taking the filter off for a second.
There are negatives and positives in what I’m about to say. First, we got an email from Apple who’s not terribly pleased that we allow non-nude female content.
Let me just say that Apple and their apps are one of the biggest gateways to adult content on the planet. You can download the Reddit app and find nudes in minutes. And Apple knows this. Will they ever remove the Reddit app from their store? Never in a million years. Instagram uploads more NSFW content every minute than we do in an entire year. Meanwhile, theCHIVE has never posted nudity, ever. At least never intentionally (*cough cough — Doug*)
theCHIVE app is easily the most downloaded humor app in the history of the App Store. Will they remove us? Probably not, that would cause quite a national stir and massive hypocrisy debate, but who knows. We do have to extend an olive branch and respect their TOS. When I tell the Chivers that we are the misfits and underdogs, I’m not kidding. We deal with this crap all the time. There are a lot of people who don’t want us to exist. Which blows my mind given that the sum total of our creative output is to make you happy.
We don’t do politics, we do not uphold people to hate or ridicule, and the foundation of theCHIVE is charity. I ran into an Apple moderator at a bar at SXSW last year and he literally had no clue we were a purpose-driven company about to cross $20 million donated to the orphaned causes of the world. Dude loved him some Instagram models though.
While the rest of the internet is pushing us to the margins and rewarding polarized points of views with likes and shares, we are bringing people together. But that doesn’t jive with Apple. Cleavage is the real bad guy here.
The internet is changing rapidly. Europe is regulating the entire internet, California is following suit. Apple aside, we’re all moving to a logged-in world whether we like it or not. And so iOS users must login to see all of our content starting today. You will still see content if you are not logged in, but you won’t see our *best* content.
*History Lesson: From 2013-2016 theCHIVE was login-only. We’ve done this before, for three years straight in fact, and it’s not a big deal. Mostly because logging in takes all of 15 seconds.
If you are on the latest version of the iOS app and not-logged in, simply
CLICK HERE to log-in.
Otherwise, go to the menu in the upper left of the app and click the profile icon. From there you can log in or sign up.
To create an account, you only need username, email, and password – no email confirmation necessary.
Once you are logged in once, you are logged in forever. Enter and enjoy. You are now free to Chive On.
PS – Please upvote and share to make sure the word gets out to theCHIVE community. Thank you!
