Mature Content Guidelines


Okay. First things first, let's get one thing out of the way:

Don't post anything that'll get us shut down by Invisionfree.

Strictly speaking, Nightwatch is rated PG-13 solely by Invisionfree's TOS. However, between ratings creep and general laxness of enforcement, we can probably push that limit up to weak R. Any explicit smut, however, can and will be deleted. Take it to PMs so we don't all lose our lovely board, folks.

Full disclosure: your admin is an adult. Legally, mentally, and physically. Which means that I am mature enough to handle whatever adult content you throw at me (and cuss to your motherfucking heart's content!) but I'm also past the phase of thinking that ~SMUT AND GORE~ automatically make you a mature RPer. Protip: they don't. They're tools in a story, just like any other tool.

On the other hand... this is a grim RP. There will be violence and dark themes and terrible things happening. (For those of you who know me from other sites, Nightwatch ain't Peregrine. Not in the least.) OOCly, this RP is a safe space, and always will be. ICly, nowhere on Pern is a safe place anymore. This is not to say that I condone tragedy for tragedy's sake, or solely for shock value. If you're going to go with mature themes, I expect - no, demand that they be played with thoughtfulness and maturity. This will be enforced. Offensive portrayals will be corrected firmly but fairly. If I don't think something can be handled with grace and maturity, I will ask you to remove it, and I expect you to comply without complaint.

In return, if I ever slip up (no one is perfect or omniscient) call me the fuck out and I'll check myself before I wreck myself.

That's all, folks.
