  3. A designated 'NSFW' tag would be sufficient

  1. [22:00] <Spaughtyena> Were you serious about the 'naughty' RP are... cause I'd love you forever... ;)

    Poorly phrased IRC quote aside, D41 and Masq were talking about how they'd be down for an erotic roleplay around here. And I guess what my thought was is "why not?" If people are interested in that sort of thing, then I'd be alright to allow it here on ZEJ... but I was also thinking of revitalizing and old CoU-type thing for the purposes of this. A 'mature' forum, for erotica, and other such things of that nature.

    Now I know most of us here are mature and won't go 'lawls peeniz' in any RPs, but if someone is going to go full-blown 50 Shades of Furry on here, I think I'd rather separate it from the rest of the forum. So tossing in a 'Mature Roleplays' section to segregate the Stats, the Freeform, and the ero-stuff would be put into place, in theory.

    What I'm wondering is if the staff would be okay with me implementing such a thing? Obviously, the interest is there, and I'm more than sure that some people around here would love to blow off that sort of writing. So, that's my proposal. If main members don't want to see it, we could even throw up a password to restrict usage to only those who want to expose themselves to. I know that not everyone does, so it'd be kept fairly minimal in nature.

    Just toss a vote into the poll. We're going majority rules as usual with this. If you have strong feelings either way, vocalize them, of course! I don't personally have any myself, but I'd love to hear staff input on the subject.
  2. I've said this before -- I have literally zero qualms with this sort of thing as long as it doesn't explode into Fetish City. Vore is gross.
  3. Perfectly fine with it as long as, yeah, it's in its own section. I wouldn't be adverse to throwing a password up, either, partly because if we ever DO get a young or less mature member we don't have a parent banning them from ZEJ because a few members are into erotic roleplaying.

    and while I wouldn't participate I'd probably read
  4. Sure, in its own section as has already been discussed.
  5. In regards to the main point of this thread... No. No. NO. This is a great roleplaying website, and I don't want it to devolve into anything like that. So again, NO!!!

    However, perhaps there could be "mature" roleplays in a different way. Maybe stuff that in theory would be "R" rated if it were a movie, with excessive violence and/or excessive language and/or sensual stuff. 

    But again, I draw the line at "X" rated crap, so NO!!!!!!!!!!

    P.S. Sorry about the rant.
  6. Having a mature roleplaying area doesn't mean the site will devolve- I've seen several places with that kind of section that ran perfectly fine.
  7. Brawly, this isn't SoFurry. We know where to draw the line on this sort of thing, and the members are mature enough to not let it explode outside of the designated section. If you're so concerned that it'll really devolve into everyone making porn RPs, then why don't we make the section invisible to people who aren't in a certain group and staff.
  8. I have to agree with the majority, here. What I can say that, Brawly, if you don't like it, you don't have to look like it (I'll personally not be tending to it much myself), but for those who do, let them have to request the password from one of us that way we won't have parents breathing down our neck or any of that riffraff. As per Spaughtyena requesting it to you personally and with a wink face, that scares the fuck out of me, but it's also hilarious so I digress. :5 Point in case, I completely agree with Eebit's opening post and I don't see anything wrong with it. Password regulation is a good way to keep the young/peeperz (loltheyoungsparents) out of the whole thing, and no one who dislikes it will ever have to step foot in there. I don't care if we have it or not, personally, so I'll just go for pleasing the majority and just saying okay, sure.
  9. Bumping this. Let's get a decisive opinion on this so we can introduce it on trial, or shut this down for good. Any further opinions? Anyone have any other final words? Opinions? Do you think this would even get used? Is it worth implementing? Pass-protected? etc etc etc

    Giga, Shadow, looking especially at the two of you, but Dark/Kuda/anyone else who has posted previously, your extended opinion to reflect the above questions would also be lovely.
  10. I don't really care, so...
  11. Regardless, as a staff member, you're sort of obligated to offer some sort of opinion! Why don't you care? What causes you to be apathetic to the input of this?
  12. I'm still completely for it, as long as there's a password protection on the section(easily gained from an administrator who deems the user mature enough, probably).
  13. Well honestly, it's just something I wouldn't care whether or not it existed. But if you really need a vote from me, just put me down as "yes as long as it's password protected".

    Although if this does get implemented, do not drag me into said section for an RP.

    That goes for you too, Kuda.
  14. I'm going to disagree not because of the inherent NSFW theme, but because it would have little functional relevance with the current size of ZEJ. Essentially, only Masq and Spaught would be the ones to regularly frequent and post in this section, and all in all, it would see very little activity because of that. Compare that to actually large forums with a big enough playerbase to have a full-fledged "mature" roleplaying section complete with password access and all. Honestly, if they wanted to ero-RP, they could just take it to PM or something like that, because adding a section with an interested playerbase of this size is really not the way to go.
  15. That's definitely a good point. I don't know how many people are really into the NSFW RPing thing (though I do know there are a number that would apparently view it), especially around here. Shadow has a point, in that it is unlikely that the section on present-day ZEJ would see much use outside of Masq, Spaught, and apparently Book. We did have Dashie at one point who said she was really into ero-RPing, but obviously she isn't around anymore particularly to vouch for it.

    So I guess that puts us back a few steps. Is anyone going to step up to champion the idea and at least push it through to trial? Because I'm going to step back and agree with Shadow that it would only make sense if people were in for it. And to my knowledge, they aren't, as even the response just among us staff members has shown.
  16. I still say it's worth a trial at the very least, but I do have to agree with the userbase not really fitting it at the moment... I don't know.
  17. Do we want to take this poll public, then? See if there is, in fact, interest from the general populace of the forums? I think the general thought is that we don't yet have an active base of people who want to use it, and none of the staff really have strong feelings either way... so I guess we ought to make a new thread for the public eye to duke it out?
  18. Yeah, pretty much.
  19. I'd be concerned about the legal aspect of it. I mean, face it, minors could wander in and say they're older. There should be some form of cockblock for them, and maybe, if this was say 1x1 or something, I'd tell them to take it to PMs. That's what the Magnolia rules are.
  20. We base it on maturity afaik, not so much age, and this is exactly why there would be a password put in place.

    I don't really think legality would be so much of an issue because not only can they go basically anywhere else on the internet and do it, but they wouldn't be able to just freely view the forum.
