Please do not include censorship to GMS2. I would prefer to have the same amount of skin showed in KMS2.

EDIT Lin:
Here are some examples of the current items that got affected by the censorship:

Can we get a word from @NXACuddles on why Nexon is censoring the game? Has Nexon learned anything at all from Hyper Universe?

I've been scrolling through some feeds to see what people think about the gms2 censorship and I've noticed something that brought up a great point.

So to prove if @Drakooon is right or wrong I created a poll!

And while completing this survey, please keep in mind what is at stake here.

After submitting your poll, please leave a detailed comment as to why you have selected this option.

ex: By censoring us, it's as if you are chaining us down and taking away our freedom of expression and I cannot have that. One reason why I'm playing MapleStory 2 is because I thought this game would grant me a sense of freedom I couldn't have in the real world!

And remember everyone, you have the potential to change everything!

    i don't think that counts as hentai, but my name on here was "Hentai" and it got forced changed to this lovely name, so i don't think they like anything related to it.

    even though during beta the word "staff" was censored but "hentai" wasn't

    Concerning thread title. If you mean UGC costumes, then yeah, I'm sure you could make outfits like this..

    ..without any penalties since cleavage isn't considered Hentai. It'd only become an issue if the rest of the outfit made it look like something 'happened' to the character, such as this (NSFW):

    I wonder what type of outfits are deemed to be too much in gms2. Playing cms2 there's a lot of outfits that make your character almost naked - there's this one outfit that has some bandages around the waist and little bandaids to cover your nipples. Naked butt. Wet shirts that show underwear.
    At least on the server I'm on I haven't seen anything worse than that.

    Depends on how kid-friendly they want the GMS2 version to be. It might be one of the changes they make when taking regional culture into account.

    There should be an adult language filter settings for forums because most players are passionate about their adult opinions.. plus it's the west... so it's natural to write anything we want p:

    Would have to be nude to be hentai I think so I doubt it will make it to GMS2.

    Hopefully, they only decide to censor the sexually explicit material while keeping the borderline stuff.

    They'll censor it for sure, I just hope it isn't the silly little censors they usually have.

    It's funny how majority of players want the game to be uncensored yet it will be censored 100% guaranteed? Because hey, whatever the west says is good (isnt?)

    You cannot possibly know that. It's far more likely that the vast majority of players have no idea there is even a difference in the art between the Asian versions and the Western version, and it will probably stay that way forever.

    Sadly this is exactly the same way they're utilizing people not knowing about scrapped game content (not existing in CBT) in order to promote the newest changes because it's all the majority knows about.

    I think that MS 2's certain indecent elements will be edited somehow due to culture differences, regional law regulations and rating standards, especially when children and youth are one of Nexon's game target audience. Contradictorily enough, above-mentioned young playerbase knows more about explicit content than censorship is trying to hide with enforced policy nowadays. It's quite sad to gimp original creation of producers this way and not having an option to experience it unchanged in the West as adult but I have to deal with it if I'd like to see the game in our region at all, unfortunately I have no means to fight against the mindset of censors no matter how much I wish for it.
    Kind regards!
