It’s okay, and I’m glad to hear it. I said it because you don’t know where everyone online are truly from or their heritage. I, for one, am not of Chinese heritage at all. Though I do have many Chinese and mid to east Asian friends, am originally from a culturally diverse country, and used to live in South Korea… most of my knowledge comes from my own interest in doing my own research.
are you allowed to have character customization in an entry?
Yes, of course. This is all the information on characters that they are asking for…
Thank you for your answers I’ve read guidelines but I was curious if it counts when you don’t publish it. I am sure now
Can someone send me the link to the new male customization template for limelight.
All CC templates are updated.
HAHAHA! This was already answered!
I don´t think this should offend anyone…
I mean if you as a writer want to make the storyline according to the MC´s look/ethnicity, it´s your story and you can make it whatever you want! If the overall story contains different races I think it´s good.
I don´t think every story has to have full customization.
Does ANYONE agree?
Agreed, so long as you’ve done the research to back up the “controversial” (if any) decisions you make!
I agree! Especially when the author has a specific vision for the characters and it affects the storyline.
Wait so would it be okay to have limited skin options or should I have all - A lot of people think I should have all while @devilishh said that I wouldn’t offend anyone - I just don’t know
I would like to go from light to tan/medium but I would be absolutely willing to include all skin colours
Also I may have art scenes so I’m not sure what to do.
I do have a specific vision for this character
Well, going with the majority would probably be best since they’re your potential audience/readers. Though I’d choose to go with you’re gut, as you’re the writer and have to be happy with your story, ultimately. In saying that, I still suggest that doing heaps of research is key.
But if you are certain that there will be art scenes, then I say no CC because it’ll just ruin the effect of the art scenes and there will be no point in having them.
Okay. Thank you so much for your help. I’m very appreciative - thank you. I hope you enter, I’d love to support you
You’re very welcome. … Umm… well, I’m being semi-forced to, so if I don’t give up then I will.
Best wishes to you, I’m sure you will do amazing
I’ve started working on my entry, but before I get too committed, I wanted to make sure it was interesting to you all. Below is a quick synopsis. Could anyone tell me their thoughts? Thanks!! <3
