    Volunteer Moderators would fix this. :p

    This is something I've been suggesting for a while and its really just something I firmly believe would be very healthy for the game.
    At first my suggestion was that the moderators would only be able to mute, but hey, this is yet another little job they could have! They could implement an approval process and these VM's could help approving/disapproving them!
    These VM's would be regular ol' players, just with a bit of a volunteer side job in the game~
    This was something I had thought of as well, and it'd certainly help combat the many rule violators that slip by. Who better to aid than those who are constantly interacting with the game?

    Also if Japan and Korea can handle stuff like this:

    And still turn out quite alright, then so can the US, cause I have seen and heard some horrible crap go down here while growing up as a kid and I can tell you that this is nothing. It's just cartoon. Pixels. = w=

    The level of lewdness is way higher in Japan and they seemed to have turned out alright, but what's funny was that the United Nations was making demands of Japan to not depict sexual content in medias like anime, manga, and some video games. Their argument is that these media are in breach of human rights, as they sometimes focus on the abuse of women.

    If you were to argue against me on this, your strongest argument would be that fictional anime characters have human rights too lmao! I swear some politician probably didn't want to see his 2D waifu depicted in such a way. xD

    Japan flat out thought they were morons and completely ignored them by the way. That's why they pushed out stuff like Gobllin Slayer and Berserk. = w=

    Im going to go with they told you the wrong reason and it was really taken down for copyright issues. Just look at the NPCs in game this is definitely less revealing than dome of them.

    THIS is more sexually suggestive than your outfit and it's an official character HANGING her 'chibi' teets in my face while covered in sweat. What is wrong with nexon? If they'r gonna have some of the most sexually charged NPC's in their official game then why crack down on a few outfits that aren't even as revealing? HER TEETS ARE LITERALLY ALMOST POPPING OUT OF THE SHIRT

    it seems to me that they pressed the wrong button when taking down your outfit or something... maybe it had to do with copywrite material instead and a salty person reported it due to your previous thread

    problem is our toon is basically "loli" age, basically underage what it gives off to me, there isn't option to increase chest size or more adult facial feature. I would like to try make character close to Ophelia.

    These chibis look like there below 13, this is just wrong on both parts lol.

    Last I checked this isn't real life and I can't put an age on something that has no real world presence in reality. Nexon just needs to decide on guidelines for UGC and stick to it. Problem we have right now is everything is too vague and perception of the person at the keyboard is judge, jury, & executioner.

    ''It's ok guys, she looks like a 5 year old but is actually 100 years old magical being, so you can sexualize her'' No.

    Anyway, on the OP post both are pretty suggestive. This game has rules that you're supposed to follow, and if Nexon deemed your UGC too much, then you simply have to deal with it. I'm sure the other UGC will be gone sooner or later aswell, don't worry about that when you aswell have broken the rules.

    Also you can't compare the korean/chinese rules, ideas, and whatever is ok there to the US/EU /: culture differences are a thing, you know? Some of the official art got censored here, if you forgot about that already ^^ I wouldn't be surprised if they end up censoring more ingame artwork/portraits if people insist on those being too much. And to add, the more ''sexy'' characters usually look more mature in general compared to the more child-like player characters and some NPCs like Madria (who's artwork got censored).

    Speaking from experience dealing with age ratings from tv/movie side but I'm pretty sure a lot of similarities in game age rating system:

    Couldn't find age rating for this game but you fellas need to understand that games target certain age rating and have to keep it there or face fines.

    Every sexy image in the game has been seen by age rating board and they have approved it, maybe first version of image has been too suggestive and Nexon has made slight changes to make it age appropriate, this happens a lot in movies where things get re-shot and cut out just because age rating would be wrong.

    Fighting scene shows fist hitting face and blood pouring out of mouth -> rated R
    Fighting scene where we see punch motion and cut away before fist hits face and blood is seen in the air -> rated PG
    (Basically the same thing but age drops from adults to 13 years olds, so huge difference)

    Sometimes it's really fine line with age ratings and companies aren't going to risk it. Maybe there are conservative countries where you can play Maplestory and it's ok to show some cleavage but showing underside of the boob is a big no no. It's not as simple as "In my opinion this one looks sexier"

    So when you submit sexy stuff, you should realize that if there's even a slightest chance they will get in trouble for it, they will remove it.

    Just because one sexy image is removed but other isn't doesn't mean that the other is going to stay up there forever, no-one will ever make a sexy costume so great that Nexon will march back to PEGI to get it rated.

    Whip me mommy! ;D

    Let’s not forget about Madrame, one of the main antagonist. She’s probably the most revealing NPC out of all of them. Just take a look at her backside.

    I do not want to say that mod is weirdo because he can ban me but seriously there is something questionable about his/her judgement and you do not have to be quite the genius to see what it is.

    I think they even made fun of Ophelia's, er, bust a couple of times in the game.
    One of the loading screen tooltips is "Ophelia is popular for many reasons."
    Another is Ophelia saying to the player "What are you staring at?"

    I feel like it was probably a mistake in the reason given and more likely that it was removed for something else. Nobody was going to report that for being sexual, but it is likely they would report it for thinking it's stolen or something along those lines.

    I also want to say I don't find the image on the left particularly sexual either to be honest. I kind of felt the rule was more aimed at preventing people from uploading pornographic content rather then to crack down on cleavage.

    Both are fine. At the end of the day this is a PG-13 game (or should be). Content should be fine as long as there are no nipples showing and the characters are appropriately "censored" in the appropriate areas (despite, you know, all being barbie dolls/ken dolls). Dispute the claim and have the content-ban lifted, it shouldn't take too long. Or at the very least find out wtf the difference is.

    btw the outfit on the left is atrocious, I can't believe 200+ people put it on their characters. As a lover of fashion and fabulous sass, that is not an approved True Gorl™ outfit. Get some class and sass, hunTies. Your outfit on the other hand is most def True Gorl™ appropriate.

    I'd love to get that 2B dress for myself if it weren't for all the thieves and violation penalties making that difficult to support Dochi's derivative work. Which I'm a fan of.

    First and foremost the OP's design is not sexual, I don't understand why it got tagged and reported for that. What I can understand is there a limit to what you can report something on so you probably got trolled or witch hunted by salty players seeing as how you created a thread that went after someone who took your design which makes it karma.

    But, as for the other topic that's going on. Everything in this game is chibi art style, the players have no control over that so you can't go and pull the age card of the character when you are given nothing to differentiate from it. I personally do not see my characters as kids, because I myself am not a kid. You could say well that's me, but no...no it isn't. Just because our characters are chibi does not mean we created them to be a child. Dress them up as a child. Make custom outfits thinking they are a child. This issue lies in you and only you. If you look at a character and just assume it's a child that is on you. If you look at a character and think it's a child and then you think what they are wearing is revealing and it's wrong that's a you problem. A very big YOU problem because in that moment the only one for sure sexualizing a child is you and that quite frankly makes you a pedophile.

    I wont deny i reported yours for copyright infringement like i said i would. So either people reported it as sexual because i feel like overly sexual gets looked at quicker or the GM clicked the wrong button. Either way its gone now so nothing you can do about it.

    Got the same mail as you, with the same reason, for this.
    OpotgcD.jpg?1
    This was my test UGC, just edited the blue jeans texture to black and made it shorter. I never sell it and only wear it for a while, because I just quickly edited it and didn't care about quality. While I'm glad they returned the design voucher so I can make a better UGC, I feel the reason is ridiculous. There are more suggestive UGC in market, and this one basically covers the same area as their sportswear bottom. I don't understand their logic to determine what is sexual and what is not.
