A Friendly Reminder to those in RM about Gore
« on: September 22, 2010, 06:24:44 AM »
I've gotten a few complaints about gore and brutally beaten folks in RM as well as elsewhere.  

As these violate the rules I'm moving them to quarantine as I find them.  

This is a friendly reminder to discontinue posting images of extreme gore or violence.

Was the individual who posted these punished?

A quick look at the most recent threads posted in RM should probably answer that question.

He was warned, which is standard for a first offense.

My first warning was for posting a picture of Phoenix Wright. How unfair :(

Would this rule also apply to pictures of explicit bodily functions?  Someone in RM keeps posting some graphic, and frankly, disgusting, pictures of people vomiting.  I don't think that ought to be allowed any more than images of poop are.

Don't post shock images. 

I don't see why this is complicated.

If you are posting something for the explicit reason of grossing people don't do it.

So is it ok to post something that grosses someone out as long as that wasnt my intention?

Honestly I'd say if you were to do so you'd be doing it at your own risk.  For example, if I saw it, I'd have to be pretty convinced that you were legitimately trying to spark a topic of discussion and had no choice but to post the picture to get your point across.  If I see it the opposite way (that you fabricated a point for the express purpose of posting the gross-out, or posted a gross-out picture that wasn't necessary to the overall point being made), I'll probably remove the picture and warn or ban you.  In all honesty I'd probably take your past history into account when making my decision if I'm on the fence (ie, if Crustinator does it, I'd practically take it for granted that he was just trying to provoke controversy, and issue a ban unless he presented a convincing argument in his favor).  Without knowing what you might have in mind with this question, that's really the best I can answer it.

That's my answer; other mods might have their own opinions on the matter, and let's remember that interpretation of the rules is entirely at the mod's discretion.  So short answer: do so at your own risk.

The difference being that it's not your decision, Crusty.  It's the mods' decision.

You're right. I will create a thread in suggestions and concerns and baww until someone puts a tit in my mouth.

All jokes aside, if you have a serious concern, then yes, you should.

Please don't use the word tit, it offends me.

This is the serious area of the forum. Really serious. Please do not post large pixelated images of angry men.

Please do not bump threads just to memberate Crusty.
I saw a slight haze in the hotel bathroom this morning after I took a shower, have I discovered a new planet?

Brother Ichi, thank you for your kind words. Of course I have to point out that it was Brother Spanner who performed the aforementioned bumping. I suggest that large pixelated images of angry men be added to the gore list just to be sure. I have decided to issue a 3 day bam in this case as a warning to others.

I always issue myself bans. Once, I banned myself simply for finishing a sentence without using a full stop.
