How come staff.
 
Could use profanity but us normal folk cannot? :mad:

This thread is actually meant for a question :lol:

Are we allowed to use profanity? or are staff just allowed to do that?

The only word which was forbidden is Fawk, with a uc. Anything else is left to context. So in most instances you can say ;);););), bastard, ;););););), ;););););). It just can't be used in an openly angry manner(aka flaming)

Sagepain 12-06-2012 05:22 PM

Re: How come staff.
 
^ Wait so "fawk" is the only word that can't be used under any circumstances?

Yet the other words can as long as its not being used in an aggressive manner as in insulting someone?

Depends on the profanity at hand and how anal the mod decides to be when viewing it.

F-word = no no. C-word = no no. All the time. No questions asked.
Most others, as long as you're not referring to what the word actually means or calling a person one, it's okay.

You're better off not using them just to be safe. And if you do use them, don't use an excessive amount or insult.

Re: How come staff.
 
Hmm, well ok. Nice to know, not that I'll be using such words any time soon :lol:

We're not special by the by. You can use words (F..., N..... and Cu.. are forever no's) like that. But as long as you're not pointing it at anyone, flaming, complaining (Ex. leik omg usernamebob was a btch for neg' me bla bl bla), just saying it because you can (List goes on). But we just tend to say "we encourage you not to use them" because most some users on the site don't understand when you can use them and ruins it for everyone.

I've gotten warned to watch my language for using the saying the s-word except with an "e".

But apparently we can say it as long as it's not aggressive so...okay.
But props to SP for asking a legit question because that has been bothering me for sooo long.

In the last couple months it's lightened up, but some of the staff still decide to be anal about it here and there.

Well, it doeisn't matter to me anyhow but I was just wondering since I noticed the increase in those kind of words being used.

Because the staff decided not to bother showing the public the extended rules which covers this.

Re: How come staff.
 
If you got infracted for something like the S word, that was an infractor who didn't fully understand the rules on swearing. Most words are okay to use under the right context.

You cannot use the f word, c word or n word in any circumstances. Actually, going further, you're not supposed to use racial slurs at all. You'd maybe be able to get away with racial slurs in a fanfic, depending on its use.

You're also not supposed to use them excessively.

Alright, here is the actual rule we fallow for future refrence

Re: How come staff.
 
So we're allowed to use the S word but not the C word? They mean the same thing don't they?

EDIT: Wait it says the C world is not allowed but then at the bottom it says it's allowed.

The C word is the word with rap in it right?

Maikeru D. Shinigami 12-06-2012 06:18 PM

Re: How come staff.
 
You're thinking of the wrong C word. Crap is fine.
