Since we have the T-Dome now, why don't we have a rated 'R' FanFiction sub-forum of the T-Dome? Then we won't have people thinking they're mature enough to read it, but really not...

Rated "R"? PGN, this is a family forum... R is 18+... and that's not exactly family-friendly.

I know, but rated 'R' FanFics are allowed, as long as the title indicates it. But I was thinking that maybe we can make a sub-forum in the T-Dome for rated 'R' FanFics instead.

If they're allowed in the Fanfiction area, and is labelled correctly, then it's the reader's fault if they aren't old enough.

September 16th, 2004, 3:04 PM
WHAT? We're ALLOWED "R" fanfics here? I never knew that! I thought it was limited just in case... my forums have a PG13-max out rating XD

Rated R Fanfics. OH MY GOSH!!! This is a family forum.. o.o... I never knew we allow rated r fanfics...

thats gross... *cries*

R does not have to contain sex you know. v_v

An R rating can be from violence... word choice... sex... lots of stuff. =/

Exactly. That's why it should be a sub-forum of the T-Dome

September 16th, 2004, 4:55 PM
I think a subforum to the fanfiction lounge would be better, that way FF mods would still have power, as well as it being where it "belongs".

And some people might like the stories, but don't want access to the T-Dome.

September 16th, 2004, 5:04 PM
Well if they don't want access to the T-Dome, then I guess they wouldn't get to read them. Just as simple as that. Anyway, I think it is a good idea. All it is is art, and some may have their opinions about it, but I think you should give it a go. Creativity shouldn't be limited.

What's with this "family forum" stuff? I'm sure the whole family gathers around to look at Pokemon sites >_>. And what is this "T-dome" you speak of?

But anyway... I don't see the need for a seperate forum for mature fics. As long as authors give proper warning, then it's the reader's fault if they get offended by the content.

The T-Dome is a new forum that's hidden by default from members. It's for more "mature" threads. =\ You have to PM an S-Mod or higher to get access to it.

September 18th, 2004, 4:47 AM
You do? I thought it was on by default. I didn't have to PM anyone. Or is that because I'm in a different usergroup?

Well you're a Moderator

=X It's because you're a mod, and we see it by default. (We had access to it before it was officially open... but I think you were probably still blocked from PC at that point. @[email protected]

Well, on the contrary, I don't exactly think it would be such a wise idea to make a seperate section for matured fics. I would love it if they had the same for RPGs, but seeing as that is impossible...o_o T-dome is for matured people only, and nobody is stopping little kids from going into the R section, so it would be pointless really, as much as people would love to write 'R' fics.

And um, in my terms; family friendly means a bunch of 10 year olds...I am quite sure there are people much older than that, such as around 16 or so.

So overall, I oppose it. :/ The writers should just give a warning, and it isi ndeedt he reader's fault for ignoring it or something.

How old are you again?

September 18th, 2004, 11:06 AM
Wait, what would be the difference bettween an author giving a proper warning on a fic, as to the thread creater of a mature thread giving a warning that it's mature?

September 18th, 2004, 6:19 PM
It’s that an R rated forum would encourage people to write half-baked fics just to fill them with porn, or something. @[email protected]; However if the author has good intent, they’ll willingly mark said content.
Although really fics should try to conform to our basic rules.

September 18th, 2004, 6:20 PM
Another good point.

If you want to create a fanfiction with a higher rating than necessary at a forum like this, there are plenty of fanfiction websites where you can post it instead. =\

Blocked from PC? When was I blocked from PC? Oh, you mean my school block. That. *kills school*
