No, I’m not, and, again I’ll tell everyone, we moved the topic over, this topic was supposed to be just a passing thought. But I’ll respond to you anyway. EPISODE already bans stories, and we also ban stories, well, some of us do. But, there’s just too many stories out there that are not appropriate for the age that EPISODE has specified for the APP/Website (13+). Even EPISODE itself disregards it’s own guidelines sometimes in favor of writing a good story. And again, the reason why I suggested this was so that not only would readers be of age to read the stories being produced, but the writers wouldn’t have EPISODE breathing down their necks about what not to write. It’s already hard enough to write a story within the proper guidelines of a PG-13 story, but EPISODE’s guidelines are all messed up. I’m sure I used this example with someone else, for forgive me for that, but I’ll repeat it again:
When asking whether I could talk about suicide in a story that I was writing, the response was pretty much yes, but under severe limitations. However, then I asked about human trafficking, which, I’m sure you’ll agree, is a bit more darker and sinister than depression and suicide, but EPISODE just said that if I wanted to, I could write an entire story about it.
…What the heck?
I know that it might seem unfair, but it might prove to be better for EPISODE and it’s community members,
Anyway, like I said, we moved the topic so if you want to voice your opinions there, feel free too : )
