VIEWING MOD FORUM THREAD: Clarify Datespeak Vs. Romance
REPLY: (by Continuum) Mar 9 2012 8:58am
Okay, could you give me a little explanation here. I've had a few people who have gotten upset lately that another mod has told them something was "datespeak" and I can't even figure out what's wrong with it.

I was under the impression datespeak was asking for a boyfriend/girlfriend, advertising yourself as "hot" or any of that stuff.

I don't see how romantic poems and songs (as long as they aren't graphic) are date speak?

Magic DesertPaint explanation please?

So I guess, clarification.

It's sort of a fine line.

What isn't allowed is dating...
Date speak, looking for a boyfriend/girlfriend, and discussing dating.

What is ok:
A bit of romance is ok as long as it's not graphic, no dating in that. To say they have a boyfriend/girlfriend is fine. To say they did....isn't. To talk about how hot he/she is, is not ok.

So if it actually goes into dating or date speak then it needs to go.

Most lyrics are not ok for this game, they go too far. However if there are some that just mention romance in passing (givings red rose, or something like that) then it's ok.

We don't want graphic, detailed content as the younger players either get the wrong impression or something. Young kids don't always understand concepts, everything is whatever is said. So we need to be sure the content and "innuendo" is ok for young children.

For the most part this is a judgement call by the moderators. If uncertain, please ask. :)
