G-rating

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Teh Andy on Thu Sep 08, 2005 12:07 pm

Seriously... We don't need a G-rating...

This is one of the things that irked me with AM at times.

PG-13, or even PG would be good. If we're going by Master's ESRB ratings, then I think T would be just fine.

I want to be able to use the slang term for excrement and buttocks now and then. I'd love to use the four-letter version of intercourse when it was appropriate (appropriate meaning it gets across the idea of the intensity of whatever feeling I'm trying to express). And I think it's unfair to assume we only want to use these words in designated forums.

Can I live in a G-rated world? ....Possibly, but it wouldn't be a happy life. I was semi-spoiled when I went to AnimeLeague and found almost no censorship whatsoever. I could rittle my posts, IC and OOC, with curse words and no one would complain.

Seriously, who here is under the age of 14?

I think we can get by with mild cursing here and there and some full-bore cussin' elsewhere in the forums.
Live in your world, get KOed in mine.

Uhm, I know I need higher than a G rating with the way I describe things. I won't use a curse word, but I'm incredibly descriptive.

Yeah, I agree. I mean, our characters are not like 7. They're gonna do things that we're not allowed to use in G rated stuff. We're gonna need to be descriptive and sometimes gory at times. We're gonna need to not be censored.

Aren't the IC forums unrated?

Yes...when we're IC, we're going to need full-blown freedom to accurately portray our characters in monologue/dialogue.
