Yes, because, as I told you, that material wasn't allowed here.
The very first thing you did after I told you that?
Make a thread containing 3 seperate links to that material.

I will continue to delete that material, this is not the place for it.
I cannot be more clear about that.
Not the place for it.
NO discussions on it.
NO posts about it.

You have an entire internet to discuss this phase of yours, and clearly know the websites to go to for it.
Discuss it there, not here.
This is not up for debate.
This is a hard line against it, it is inappropriate.
If you find the need to post it again, you will find yourself on a vacation from this website.
I'm not sure how I can be more clear on this subject than that.

EDIT: I think I posted a blank, sorry

Okay, but like, again - I didn't post any material linking to what we're talking about. I just posted a Wikipedia page and some other info which details exactly WHY it's neutral and not like you think it is. But okay, sure, delete those links if you think it's so abhorrent. But the whole post just to censor any response? This is a moderation thread after all, surely this is the place to be asking about that stuff, even if, as is the case, the content isn't allowed?

I mean, you can't have a thread about whether X is allowed and then delete any responses to why X might be allowed?

You can't pre-judge something as bad without weighing up why it's bad, which means you shouldn't prohibit objective information about it (which might open your eyes as to why it isn't bad in the first place

Also you're saying I'm posting content as if I'm posting something explicit rather than what I was. But okay

I still don't see any allusion between this topic and MLP / cosplay. In fact if anything, cosplay is more sexist and creepy

Anyway, hope this post stays at least


EDIT: Wallace your thread was trash anyway

LewieGee, I'm 34 years old, I've been around the block a few times, and I don't need your cheesy links to know the topic at hand.
This isn't cosplay, it carries with it a whole different meaning, and reguardless of your specific interests or what you might think you're getting into, that's not the meaning it holds.
There's being open minded, and then there's being foolish.
There's nothing neutral about it.

There's nothing to discuss about why X isn't allowed.
I straight up told you why X isn't allowed. It's inappropriate.
That's a direct rule of this forum.
I'm not making a judgment call, I'm giving you a black and white "It's against the rules" call.
"Offensive Material is Prohibited: Posting material that offends others is definitely prohibited."
"Offensive material could be a lot of different things but to give you an idea of what we mean, here’s a partial list of some of the more obvious ones: pornography..."
"Discussion of Inappropriate or Illegal activity: What you do on your spare time is your business but we ask that you don’t discuss..."
Again, someone who has been here as long as you should know this like the back of your hand.
I'm literally quoting rules now.

What you want to post about directly leads to pornography, and to deny that is blinding yourself to the nature of that specific interest.
How is it different than cosplay?
Cosplay is not designed specifically to focus on the sexual.
Cosplay is nothing but anime fans celebrating their favorite shows once in a while.
Cosplay is NOT a lifestyle centered around sexuality, and if it is for you, then you need to reexamine your life.
Why is MLP allowed? MLP as a subject matter is an little girl's cartoon show, and, again, if you find it sexual, you need to reexamine your life.
I'm not your parent, so I can't do anything to keep you out of that lifestyle, but I do run this forum, and it's not coming here.

Go elsewhere with it.

Okay, I understand the rules. I also understand that as a mod, you get to decide what falls in and out of those rules, even if members disagree or whatever.

The thing I take issue with is that you assume it "directly leads to pornography" and that it's inherently something sexual when it's not. You say "cosplay is nothing but anime fans celebrating their favorite shows once in a while" which is exactly what the thing I posted is, too, only its celebrating nature, beauty and animals rather than tv shows. Different strokes. Anything perverse or /like that/ is NOT what I intended, and neither is it emcompassrf witin a general definition of the term

But yeah, I understand, that stuffs not to be posted. But at least accept that it's because of your subjective (imo misguided) judgment call about its content, rather than any objective definition you're muddying in

Cheesy links? It was, like, the Wikipedia page for it and the second thing that came up with a Google search...?

Give it up.
You cannot discuss it here.
What YOU want it to stand for is not what it stands for, you cannot seperate it's perverse nature.
It's not a misguided judgment call, it's not even a judgment call.
It's a section of pornogrpahy, pornography is forbidden.
There's nothing left to argue about.
Pushing the issue will literally get you nowhere.

This is a Yu-Gi-Oh forum, and while we do allow for other topics, there are limits due to the audiance of Yu-Gi-Oh.
I'm not telling you that you cannot appreciate nature here.
What you're looking to discuss is not nature, it is a fetish whether you want to believe that or not.
Honestly, I'm done discussing this because this conversation will otherwise go in circles.
Take a breather, log off for a bit, and get over it.

I think I could say exactly the same thing to you, though (and, like, the only thing you have said in response is "it just is"; I tried to show you that it isn't but I get it, links to anything like that are prohibited.

I... yeah, we're going in circles.

I mean, it's not, for me, though, and it's not for anyone who takes it seriously.

But I give up. Can I at least keep the avatar?

New Rule

Post by YCG Admin » Tue Jun 28, 2016 2:42 pm

I updated the Rules for Participation to include a prohibition on Religion or Religious based posts. Seems these never go one well.

Religion or Religious Based Content: We are not anti-religion here, in fact we welcome anybody regardless of their views. Yu-Gi-Oh Card Guide, however, is not the place for religious conversations or debate. This decision was made, after careful consideration, due to the extreme personal feelings that some folk have about their beliefs and the number of arguments that have occurred surrounding this category of post. Please refrain from any religion or religious-based posts.
