This is a family-friendly place, and this includes US and Saudi families! Stop questioning moderator decisions and go to the underground!

So much for encouraging women to be involved in technology/design. None of the images were offensive, can someone explain where it's gone?

The images weren't offensive, but more than a few of the posts weren't family appropriate.

I think that explains it best. Safest decision was to just kill it and move on.

For the record though, I cannot be offended. I don't have the time or effort to worry about things like that. You guys could post hardcore porn with flashlights and I wouldn't care. I'd take a look, maybe laugh or think how wacky some people are. No harm done to me.

But we may have some young teens here, or even younger, so we gotta keep it clean!

So surely you then remove the those comments, warn the offenders of their behaviour and move on? Not remove an entirely relevant thread posted on the relevant forum?

What wasn't said already that needs further rehashing?
It'd always be on moderators radar, altruistic intentions now, possibly, later, doubtfully.

Eggzactly, Paul. Leaving the "eye candy" issue aside, this represents one of the earliest public attempts at wearable LEDs for the masses.
Well, this is the third time one of my threads has been deleted. Three strikes and I'm out of here. I learned a lot in this site during the past couple of years and I hope some of my posts were informative. All the best to everyone at CPF.

Well done CPF admins, now the source of some of the most technically interesting LED links is going. Slow clap.

I didn't see the thread. But I have seven and eight year old girls that often sit next to me when I am on my laptop and I am here quite a lot.I check out just about every thread but the time difference must have beat me on that one.

Actually shirts with LED bargraphs in them pre-date this by quite a few years. I would say I saw those shirts 5-6 years ago at a fall fair.

Re: Where did the LED M*** S**** thread disappear to?

This girls not just getting an led strip and stitching it in with a couple of AAA's taped together, hoping for the best and going ooooooooooo look at the light. She's coding her own control app, designing a new enclosure that hooks on to a belt and using 3D printers to make them (and other projects). She's even blogged her thoughts on expanding the idea. Some of which I reckon you can really see catching on, in her part of the world especially!

"The original Hiraku skirt is self contained with limited functionality. The versions I have read about either respond to sound, or to motion. It’s basically just an electric bangle- like the reflective belts belly dancers wear that flash when you move. What I wanted was a smart skirt- a true wearable output device. Right now I just use the app that came with the board to control the skirt, but even that offers a ton of functionality. I've almost finished a new, smaller enclosure after that I think I will code a better control app. Some ideas so far: * I can sample my outfits color- even multiple colors and coordinate my skirt to those colors. * I can set specific colors that match certain holidays- red and yellow for Chinese New Year and flash in the pattern of lucky Chinese numbers. Red White and Blue for a 4th of July BBQ with my foreign friends. The team colors at a sporting event. * If I set my phone up as a open wireless AP, and have the skirt colors change or brighter depending on the number of connected wifi clients (and so crowd size). * Chinese girls love to wear matching outfits on a girls night out. Not only can our skirts match colors, they can chance in sync or strobe in complex patters across a group. * We can use the skirts to coordinate complex group dance patterns or games of tag. * It can be used for speed dating meetups- if you approach a girl with a lot of shared interests her skirt glows green, otherwise it glows red so you are saved the embarrassment of trying to make conversation with someone you have little in common with. That’s just off the top of my head. Women already use clothes and fashion as a primary social signal- it’s one of the ways we communicate with the world. Variable wearable fashion builds on and allows us to automate that."

How is someone dressed in more than a bikini could be offensive to anyone anyway?

As Semiman says there have been some garments around for a number of years but the only ones I have ever seen have been on ads on DX etc
