Hello, I'd appreciate your input here whenever you get a chance. I've collected substantial evidence of the proper scaling in a blog post linked in the thread. I believe the scaling the site uses is currently severely in need of an update.
Also why isn't Dr. Manhattan's regen Low-Godly again? Wasn't his physical body completely destroyed and he put it back together with his conciousness? I'm watching the new Imaginary Axis video and this was directly stated to be the case. I remember we used to rate him as such.
some saint seiya blogs as well as another thing which may be more controversial. I think it would be very productive if we introduced as "Mature Tag" for some pages, similarly to how FCOC is doing right now. It would be much better than just have to censor stuff unfairly.
I kinda did a double-take with Molag Bal at first too. Seems like we are doing Jojo-level censorship here. "No one will know that someone just got their head cut off if we make the place where blood is spewing out a darkened black rather than red!"
For those with very brutal/sexual natures, censoring them instead of filtering them seems odd.
Edit: Oh. Molag Bal doesn't even have the "r*pe" part anymore. I see what you mean.

There is something very disturbing in the western world, particularly in the United States, where if your book has a whole page about a murderer splitting skulls with an axe nobody will bat an eye, but if there's a whole page about two consenting adults having explicit sex it suddenly becomes the worst thing ever.

Of course not, no real porn being posted, and probably nothing like full-fontal nudity in pics. Although even there there is wiggle room with stuff like Mara, who is displayed in its full glory in the SMT Wiki, which has no mature warning or tags, and nothing ever happened.
I'm not one who is super for explicit sexual content, but censoring it and not censoring murder-glorifying media seems very hypocritical. That said I believe, personally, that it depends on the type of explicit content and how one is able to interpret it. Some individuals who consume porn adopt a rather jaded and unrealistic view of women and sex, although the acceptance of the more violent real-life counterparts of violent media is lesser due to its more obviously bad nature.
But honestly this is a really complicated topic and I could go on for way longer. As of now I support the mature tag usage.
Weather Mara requires a Mature Warning or not is debatable. In the context of this wiki, tho, I absolutely would put such a tag into his profile should I ever make a profile for him.
I'm just saying that, if the context of the nudity isn't pornographic, you can get away with a lot.
like, Bouguereau's painting The Birth of Venus and Michelangelo's David statue both have explicit full-frontal nudity, but nobody in their right mind would call them obscene or pornographic, they are just classic art.
I agree we can afford to be more lenient on sexual themes. However I still want to make sure to adhere to Wikia's guidelines regarding it. And citing one wiki that gets away with certain things doesn't mean we should immediately jump to take that risk. Especially when we are far more popular, prominent and have people who'd want to run in to report us.
"But of course, Carasel was working under me, developing a number of concepts, dimension was one, and sleep another. Anyway, he had begone to work on another project---one of the major ones...the one that I would usually handle, or possibly even Zaphkiel"
"But Carasel had done such a sterling work. And his last project was so remarkable. Something quite trivial, that he and saraquel elevated into...but that is unimportant. It was this project (developing concept of death) that force him into unbeing"
what do you think?
I'm not sure what to about this if it turns out to be a 1-A feat
