Let me start by saying this:
I’ve loved your app for so long. During my time as part of this community I have had the chance to speak to some great people, see some amazing art and read some incredible stories. I’ve had to the opportunity to become an author myself and realise just how kind strangers can be and how appreciative they are of someone else’s hard work.
I’ve defended you during some of the problems you’ve had in this most recent year. On numerous occasions I have said these exact words ‘It’s not Episode’s fault’. I regret that now, as it’s clear I was being naive.
Due to your most recent story In My Bed… I can’t help but question whether or not you actually care about what your community thinks of these stories. So here is your chance to actually see.
How can you possibly advertise yourselves at 13+ when you are writing stories for 18+? I thought this was Episode: Choose your story not, Pornhub’s Pen Party.
I’m 23, I’m a parent and this is just beyond wrong in so many ways. If you had a 13 year old daughter or son, could you publicly and honestly say you would be ok with them reading that story? If I ever caught my child reading that story, you could bet I would be reporting you to any agency I could as you are violating your own guidelines, yet again. This is why no one takes you seriously anymore, if you have guidelines then you should have to follow them too.
Stop losing the small amount of respect you’ve still got, start re-building your morality and gaining the trust of your community back. Right now we all appear to have more integrity than you do, despite most of us not being able to buy alcohol, smoke or vote.
If things continue to spiral down the moral rabbit hole as they are now, I’m afraid you will likely lose most of us to another online story platform. Disrespecting your community can only go on for so long before people decide they’ve had enough. I know I and many others are reaching our limit.
- Stories like In My Bed are NOT ok.
- Stories like In My Bed are ok for.
Anyone, feel free to add your concerns and opinions. Try to be respectful (especially if Jeremy or Sydney have to intervene in any way, remember they are actually doing their job).
