    Dear All 27.000 members of Chastity Mansion
    - and millions of visitors

    After having spent a full year in charge of CM
    - I have decided to make some major changes to the forum:

    I cannot say that I have consulted anyone in particular, nor have I closed my eyes and ears to the input and suggestions that members has directed to me. But I have made up my own mind, based on the experience I have gained with CM, and with the matured Chastity lifestyle of my own that I have come to love.

    I am not mr. know-it-all, but I feel confident that What I am about to do, is for the benefit of CM-members at large, is for the benefit of all new members, the vanilla ones and the experienced. A special focus on making this even more friendly to female vanilla newcomers has always been close to my heart. It is about time that I honor that, and start to do something about it.

    The legacy of CM is grand and great, And we all have to remain humble and honor the achievements. Yet, you also have to realize that CM also has an ugly face, a dark side, that keeps popping up over and over again, no matter how hard I have tried to corner it. Maybe You never heard of the dark side, lucky You! But not everybody has been that lucky;-( (Especially those involved in moderation and management of the forum has been affected, so maybe that is why You have not heard of it.)
    I have decide to spent no more time on this conflicts from the past....

    First step
    Therefore my first move is to dismiss all management. Board and Moderators. Not in disrespect, not to be ungrateful, but because I have reach the conclusion that it is the only way, I can make a brand new start.
    They have been informed a few days ago already, and the reaction to my resetting has been very very positive:)

    I have thanked All mods very much for working with me - trying their best to keep this place as neat a possible. CM is after all still the best place on the whole internet to go, if you are seeking friendships and information related to a chastity lifestyle. I have every intention to keep it like that- and more....


    Second step
    Next step will be to restructure CM and give it a new frontcover, and subsections. There will be news sections and guides and reviews and I will also open up for non-intrusive advertising, advertising that will strictly work inside the guidelines of a vanilla newcomer friendly environment - in the newcomer sections.
    In the experienced sections there will be room for more, but never cheessy degrading content and advertising.
    We will stand out as the noble one at all times.

    Please notice that no content will be lost during transition. It will all be there! Don't you worry. We are most likely not even to close down for one single day. CM will keep on running during the transition.

    Moderation wil be reinstalled but it will be of a different kind. More content oriented, and less on watching over each other in the rules department. That part will be a task for a special slim management team to take care of. Really not a job for moderators! They are to mingle with members and inspire, guide, and report. But primarily mingle and guide.

    I will pick my management team and the moderators, but I will initiate a search for members who are willing to work with me, once the new structure is in place and known to all.

    What Now
    In a couple of days I will retract all current moderating rights and status, from board and moderators. Then the transition will start. It will take some time - maybe even a couple of weeks, but we will remain live at all times, - that is the ambition!

    We get approx 400 new members every week, but do we serve them right?
    I am confident that we will come out on the other side, much stronger an equipped for a great CM future:)


    Yours truly
    Jens/Owner of Chastity Mansion

    Photos is an important part of CM and the changes will also affect the Galleries.

    1. The software has been updated to accommodate the restructuring and I have for a start introduced Categories for Photo albums.
    2. When new albums are being created and Photos uploaded the member has to decide which Category the Album belongs to. There is a "Uncategorized" option for those albums that just don't fit in. However I strongly encourage you to make an effort to make the albums thematic - and not just a bunch of arbitrary photos... That will help us all:)
    3. All of the "old" albums is not categorized, and I strongly encourage you to go in and do that. At least pick the "Uncategorized", but much rather a category.
    4. You might find that your photos fits more than one Category. Please choose the one that covers the photos the best...
    5. If You miss out on an obvious category, please come forward And I will look into it, and most likely update the list of available categories. Just keep in mind that this is a Website about Male chastity and denial... The Categories is a work in progress and inputs are welcome!
    IMPORTANT: Have in mind, that one day, not far from here, the entry to the Galleries will be a Category page, where people select from... So make sure you are there, in one of the Categories...


    THE CATEGORIES
    (The Categories subtext is also present in the description of th Categories)

    Uncategorized
    There is no one of the current categories that really fits, so here you go:) Also if there are different categories present in the album - pick "Uncategorized" for a start. We strongly encourage You to only make albums with photos of one selected category. Make more albums instead.

    Questionable
    One or more photos in this album do not comply with the rules:
    1. Avoid violation of copyrights. Upload your own photos.
    2. Do not use CM as Cloud storage for your collection of arbitrary sexual explicit photos, that has nothing to do with Your own chastity experience. This site is about male chastity and denial and all the benefits that comes from that....
    3. Multiple uploads of same motive...
    4. A very high number of Photos. ( There will in near future be restrictions on the number of photos you can have here on CM. Link to photo collections located elsewhere....

    Management will mark such and album "Questionable", no matter the category the user has chosen, and we will initiate a conversation with the member to solve the issues. At this point we will not just delete photos.

    NB: Please try not to see this as a restriction, but look at this as a tool to make light in the dark, and to allow people with various takes and interests to dive in where the water is Sparkling Blue...
