You warrant that you will not upload Content that is obscene, vulgar, sexually oriented, hateful, threatening, or that violates any laws or third-party rights, including but not limited to third-party intellectual property rights.
A few people have commented that we are allowing themes into our catalog that are of a slightly explicit nature. Our acceptance criteria so far have been "no nudity or sexually explicit content", which our moderators are currently interpreting as "no private bits". That's fairly straight forward and easy to moderate.
But we want our catalog to be safe for everybody to browse, including children, so we have decided to take a stricter approach to explicit content. We are now introducing a new acceptance criteria which is stricter, but more ambiguous: "No sexual undertones, nudity or explicit content". It will be up to our moderators to use their best judgment and I hope you appreciate why we are doing this if you are uploading a theme that you think is borderline. In fact, a general rule of thumb is, if it's borderline sexual, then it's not OK.
As a consequence of the new acceptance criteria we will remove a few themes from the catalog. I humbly ask the people that shared their "cheeky" themes to be understanding of why we are doing this.
