    Canon picture refs and Original characters

    So in my roleplaying history, I've met a lot of people with a lot of opinions on this topic. And now I'm wondering what people on ED think about this overall. You see, not everyone has the money (or desire) to pay sometimes crazy amounts of money for a drawing of our own Original Character. Let alone actually draw one ourselves, if we lack the skill. Which is why a lot of people - myself included, I don't deny it - often look for various images on the internet and use them as references for our own OCs. I won't speak for others, but I always make it known that I don't own these artworks of someone else's OC's and will take them down upon request by the owner or the artist. And it has previously happened, even though only twice, actually. One time was the owner of an OC/artist (two in one! \o/) who contacted me and asked to not use their work for my own character. And I gladly took down the pics, found different ones instead. The second time was the owner of the picture messaging me and telling they are actually surprised to see an interesting concept for a different character, yet based on the same picture as theirs. And that person even allowed me to continue using it, if I want to. But I simply chose to take it down, just in case. To avoid confusion and misunderstandings But this all applies to "Original characters" - those created by people like you and me. And this is not actually the question here, not the topic of discussion. What about reference pictures of Canon characters? The ones that are part of some kind of fiction - be that cartoon, comics, anime, games, etc. And even real life photos of actors playing those roles too. Or simply famous actor "face-claims". No, I'm not talking about literally playing AS those characters. Using 100% of someone else's work and then "perverting" it to fit our own desires, especially for lewd kind of RP... Which is a thing I would never understand or do myself... But I don't judge. I am specifically talking about using the canon character resemblance/picture for our own Original character. Everything about "who" the character is - completely original, created by you. While the looks are taken from a canon character. What's your opinion on that? ➡ Is this OK to use CANON CHARACTER reference pictures for your own Original Character? ⬅ Would also love to hear your more detailed opinions, not just only votes in the poll

    Dom/Sub, Position and misuse of those terms

    Ok, first... A disclaimer: Everything written below is my opinion, my understanding of this topic and my view on things that surround it. You are free to disagree with it. And have/offer your own opinion about it. Now, with that out of the way... THE WALL OF TEXT. Please, if you do intend on replying "on topic"... Read until the end first before doing so. I'll start with a small story that is quite "on point". I've came to ED from F-list. Another similarly themed site - adult roleplay. It's more profile + chat based instead of a forum, like ED. But it's pretty much the same when it comes to why people go there. Lewd roleplay, plain and simple. Unlike ED, the profiles on that site are more Character-based. So on your one OOC account you can have up to 255 "profiles" - pages with info about various characters, separate galleries, separate lists of preferences and kinks/fetishes. The editor itself, on top of the "main page" for all your crazy walls of text about the character, has a lot of various settings with drop-down menus. For example, the basic stuff - gender, orientation, body type (human, anthro, etc), relationship (single, in relationship, etc), body build (slim, muscular, curvy, etc)... And some more. And, naturally, some of them are more specific things that are aimed towards sex - cock shape (if any), cumshot size, pubic hair and more. Now here's the main part and topic of this thread. Among those sexual settings... There are two drop-down settings that people often misuse or misunderstand. They are named "Position" and "Dom/Sub Role". The Position has a 5-choice ratio: Always Top - Usually Top - Switch - Usually Bottom - Always bottom. The Dom/Sub Role also has a 5-choice ratio: Always Dominant - Usually Dominant - Switch - Usually Submissive - Always Submissive. And that's where the problems start. You see... First off, those are not exactly explained anywhere in the profile editor. Like, at all. Obviously assuming that people who come there actually understand what those two things mean. Which is logical for an adult-focused site, am I right? But the second problem is... The fact that these two options, with fully established drop-down menus exist along with the most basic stuff like gender and orientation - that makes people think that it's pretty much mandatory to make a choice here. And while for "Position" it's understandable (read further), for the second setting... It's actually not. It is and should be optional. In fact, I think it should be moved from the basic settings and to the "kink-list". Read further to learn why... Back there, I've met a lot of people who didn't understand what "Top"/"Bottom" means. To them, the "Position" means literal poses in sex. Like, say... Cowgirl/Reverse cowgirl - when the girl is riding a guy, who's laying on his back, yeah? In such a position, the guy is a bottom and the girl is on top. If we're talking literally, yeah? But here's the catch and misunderstanding. Top/Bottom setting of the profile there actually means... Giver/Taker. The one who fucks and the other who gets fucked. No matter the position - cowgirl, doggy style or whatever else... If the Man is fucking a Woman (let's just take the traditional stuff as example), he is a "Top". He is giving her the D. While the Woman is a "Bottom". She is the one on the receiving side of that D. People misunderstand that and it actually works against them very often. Greatest example I have seen is when one Male profile freaked out in chat (and got muted for it) when he got bombarded with approaches by multiple Males. Gay males. Who offered to fuck him in da butt. Why? Because his profile was marked as "Usually bottom". And one of his fetishes was specifically the Cowgirl position. Because he loves seeing his partner riding his dick while he's just chilling there. If taken literally, of course his character is a "bottom". Because he's on his back while the partner is "on top" - riding his cock. But as I already said.. It's not literal in case of "Top/Bottom" setting. Why did they message him though? His profile was labeled not only just "Usually bottom", but also "Bi-curious" in his sexuality. Surely, they should have read his note about that "bi-curiosity", of course, but they didn't. Why they didn't do it? That's another story. But the point is - that guy was curious about fucking a Trap/Femboy. While also explaining that he's absolutely against his character getting fucked in the butt. Yet the profile was wrongly labeled, thus leading to such confusion, conflict and him getting muted for freaking out about it. But the worst part is the Dom/Sub Role setting. Oh boi... You see... With that setting being among the basic stuff on a profile, people assume that... It is "mandatory". That it is "required". Especially the inexperienced people who come to such a site and see it there... They think that all of the relationships and sex are built on Dom/Sub dynamics. In reality however... Domination/Submission dynamics are a Fetish, a Kink. One among many various other Fetishes/Kinks. Surely, some fetishes are more "literal", more "physical". Let's say, Bestiality - the love for sex with animals. Or Foot-fetish - the love for feet. Or various toilet-play, such as scat and water-sports. Or perhaps choking/asphyxiation. These fetishes and others like them are about physical things or actions - be that body parts, sex-toys, specific activities or other things. While there are also fetishes about the non-"physical" things... Specifically, the relationships between people in the context of sex. Some enjoy rape. Others fetishize hatefucking - roughness and aggression during the sexual act. Or Cuckolding/Adultery that is growing more and more popular over the recent couple of years, for some reason. All of these and others like them are based around the "relationships", the emotional connection between people and various dynamics that are brought into it. You get what I'm saying here, yes? Undoubtedly, Dom/Sub dynamics between people fall into the second category described above. But this does not make it into something different other than... A Fetish. Nope. It is still just a Fetish. And that's it. A thing... That some people are "into". While others either don't know about it or NOT "into" it. Just like with any other Fetish, Dom/Sub dynamics is not for everyone. Some like it. Others don't. It's that simple. Which is why in our society a lot of Fetishes are kept private - for people not to judge. Surely, we all know that humans are all kinky by default, it's just the variety of kinks that differs from person to person - "to each their own", as they say. So to avoid judging each other... Fetishes are usually kept secret. At least in real life. I'm not talking about the Internet and the anonymity that it provides, yes? So let me underline what exactly do I mean by that. Domination/Submission is a dynamic between two or more people that is part of exploring a Fetish of all participants. A fetish for power dynamics, yeah? A Fetish... That is explored upon mutual consent and based upon mutual trust, mutual respect and knowing each other's limits. Which is why there is often a "safe word". To stop the "game" if something goes wrong, you know? It's a game. It's not for real. It's done to "get off" on one person showing dominance over another, via various means. Some like loss of control through bondage - literally unable to move and at partner's mercy. Others enjoy getting abused physically - choking, slapping, etc. And many other ways of domination/submission, through various other means and fetishes used along the main direction - Dom/Sub. But it all still remains a "game". An exploration of a fetish. Relationships between people are NOT built on Dom/Sub. They are not. Sure, some people are indeed more confident, assertive, can take charge over situation and groups of people. That's just the strong-willed, leader personality. That's not a sign that this person "is a Dom". Neither is the opposite person - shy, modest, lacking confidence - "is a Sub". Personality and Dom/Sub role is not the same thing. The relationship between people are also based upon their personalities, not their Dom/Sub roles. People are not born/grow up to be Dominant or Submissive. They develop a stronger or weaker personality. And only those who fetishize power dynamics of such kind do take upon the "roles" of a Dominant and Submissive. "Roles" in a "game" of exploration of Dom/Sub fetish. In privacy, with like-minded people who also have that fetish. It is not something that exists 24/7 between people in a relationship. It is not. But wait, there's more. On roleplay sites - both F-list and ED it seems... People often blur this line between a "game" (the exploration of a fetish)... And having it as a "mandatory thing". Including... Outside of bedroom, outside of the private situations. Pretty common examples on F-list are the requests for "worship". Just scroll through various chat ads and you'll see plenty of stuff that goes along similar lines: "Dom looking for worthless fuck-pig subs. Worship my perfection, sluts." Or something like that. And most of such profiles that send out similar ads are some kind of characters that are in position of power - politicians, celebrities, rich and influential, etc. And their request is not about playing a "game", not about exploring the roles of Dominant and Submissives... It's not about the Fetish. The line is blurred. It's no longer a "private" thing. They are looking for slice of life stuff, daily situations where their character acts as this Dominant all the time, while their partners are Submissives all the time. And it's not a "game" with a "safe word". It's literally about being a total jerk all the time. With no consequences. Because a lot of people also strongly connect "Dom/Sub" with the fetish for Dom abusing, degrading and humiliating their Subs. In various ways - physical and verbal. Sure, such dynamics are understandably fitting IF the scenario is literally based around the characters having different social statuses - a fantasy queen and her servants, a slavemaster and his slaves. In worlds where this is a normal thing - fantasy or sci-fi worlds, where such behavior is a normal thing. Hell, it also works with our real world historical settings too. Or those weird, illogical anime/hentai plots that I can't even comprehend most of the time. But yeah, that works just fine and I get it. It just has to be specified that it is exactly all about Master/Servant or Master/Slave. Then it will work normally, since it's already a slightly different direction. And in specifically those worlds, it works logically and realistically... But none of that works in normal, realistic modern day society. But more often than not, on F-list this is requested specifically to be in the realistic type of modern world, 9 out of 10 times even with Photo references for characters to even further boost "realism" and how close they get to "feeling it". People like I described above literally want to be total jerks "in daily life" of their characters. That is NOT Dom/Sub dynamic. That is just trash-treatment of people, if you ask me. An excuse to be a total jerk to others without having any consequences. Nobody would literally punch you back in the face. It's the internet, right? We're all safe, yeah? One last fun little fact about this whole thing. Back on F-list, I've actually did not pick Dom/Sub role on my characters that have no interest in that fetish. Because, again... Dom/Sub play is a Fetish, nothing more than that. And guess what? A lot of people who approached me... Often started asking the same question - "Is your character a Dom or a Sub?". And I replied... "Neither". Because if role is not chosen in the profile, it means the character is not interested in that Fetish, you know? Makes sense? To me, it does. I have a couple of characters who are "into" this Fetish, no doubt. And I'd gladly explore it with someone, some time. BUT!!! Specifically as a Fetish. A "game" between the characters, you know? In bedroom and other private moments. But it's not something that I'm interested to have in a "daily life", 24/7, at all times between my characters and their partners. Blurring that line is bad. Especially if the aim is realism and modern world, not some feudal fantasy with royalty and servants (or whatever else). Now. Why am I saying all of this and even created this thread? Because of four things: I noticed multiple times on ED where people also seem to blur this line between exploring a fetish of Dom/Sub and forcing it as the core of a relationship between characters in a scene/story. I'm not going to point fingers or tell any names, but... Yeah. I also noticed that people sometimes seem to confuse Dom/Sub for Top/Bottom too. It's not the same. At all. And I've explained why. I want to discuss this whole thing with you. I wonder who is "on board" with me on my opinion. And who are those that disagree with me. And wanna know why. I'm open to other opinions, even if they differ from mine. Different perspectives and all, yeah? And last, but most important... To explain my view on this, once again hoping for people to understand what I want or don't want in roleplay. /me drops_mic, leaves the stage, feeling like an idiot after writing this whole wall of text.

  7. Article Update (26th June 2019): There has been some more news that has come out in the last week or so that suggests that the law has been delayed (For a third time), and thus will no longer be implemented on July 15th 2019. Multiple sources have suggested that it's been delayed for 6 months, others say indefinitely and a few of them are saying it's been withdrawn. I will be leaving this article up however for prosperity, and in case it does come back. As usual, I will keep you all updated. - @Temaelrin on 26th June 2019 @ 22:00hrs Article Update (17th October 2019): After repeated delays to implement this; the UK government has decided to scrap this stupid idea after all. What it will be replaced with, we don't know. But for now, this is a big win for us, and a big win for online privacy. There will be no age verification and this whole article is now moot and pointless. - @Temaelrin on 17th October 2019 @ 15:25hrs (UTC) Hello everyone; I've been trying to put this off for quite some time now, however I've recently had it made clear to me under no and uncertain terms that I cannot put it off. This is something I didn't want to talk about, and I had hoped that citizens subjects in the United Kingdom would have raised their voices and told the Government to go fuck themselves, but apparently that's not going to happen and now we (as an industry) have to deal with it. I am of course talking about the UK's Porn Pass - A.K.A: Government Permission to Wank. If I am going to be forced to implement this - which is looking increasingly likely at this point, then I will be speak very fucking candidly about it at the end of the serious thing, I will deliver my thoughts – open, raw and uncensored. On July 15th 2019; the United Kingdom’s age verification law for pornography sites, will go into effect. The aim is: The UK Government want its citizens subjects to prove that they are over 18 to access adult content, and apparently putting in your Date of Birth will no longer suffice anymore. To prove that you’re over 18, you’ll either need to enter your credit card, passport number, mobile phone number or by an age verification pass from one of your local newsagents/shops. This is part of the 2017 Digital Economy Act. This law surrounds adult content, I believe it also applies to gambling sites, and tobacco/alcohol, but I’m not sure on that. In the adult site category, it applies to media (Pictures, videos and so on), cartoon porn (Hentai), and text (Roleplays for example. Sex Stories, etc). Sites that do not comply with law will face fines of up to £250,000 (At the time of writing this works out to be around $318,000 USD) and/or getting their website(s) blocked in that country. I want to make this clear that I do not like this, and I find this is to be an obviously unacceptable overreach by the UK Government, and as I’ve said previously, I’ve been told that I cannot ignore it. I also want to make this clear: This isn’t a Brexit issue. This isn’t a left/right issue. It seems that all mainstream political parties are in favour of this because of the age-old pearl-clutching trope of “Won’t somebody think of the children?!” That and the UK seems more fixated on being first in the world to do something like this, and that somehow makes it good, which is a logical fallacy in-on-itself. This announcement isn’t to talk about how we can resist it or block it. But what will happen and what I am looking into going forward. I will be speaking candidly after this to share my thoughts and concerns on the matter. But for now, I will share with you what my choices and options are. I will say that I have no intention on purging EcchiDreams of all smut-content and confine it to EcchiTexts, so I am not going to start deleting all images, public sex side stories, sex stories, etc. This isn’t an option. I could refuse to comply, in which case I think EcchiDreams might just end up getting blocked in the UK, but let’s face it, if I do comply the UK Government will probably find a way of doing that within the decade or so, at current course. I could also be fined a quarter of a million GBP, that is not a small amount. Realistically if I want to keep EcchiDreams accessible from the UK, I will need to comply and believe me – I don’t want to for reasons I will share at the end of this. There are a lot of concerns that I have; such as: Privacy Concerns – Will the details of porn users be held on some kind of database? With cybercrime so bloody rife nowadays… Do we really want to support something like that? Liberty Concerns – They came for X but it didn’t affect me, so I didn’t say anything. They came for Y but it didn’t affect me, so I didn’t say anything. They came for Z but it didn’t affect me, so I didn’t say anything. They came for me, and there was no one left to say anything, kind of thing. Let’s not delude ourselves that this is for protecting children – this is straight up nanny-state bullshit. This is Government Overreach – There is a reason that this is being dubbed as the “Wank Permit”, “Permission to Wank”, and so on. This is the Government telling us what to do because apparently parents in this country aren’t responsible, or the current block system isn’t working. It is draconian – I’d expect this in ‘The Peoples Republic’ of China or North Korea; not in a liberal democracy, and certainly not in the United Kingdom. Boomerville – This is obviously created by boomers who have no idea how the internet works. What next? Will VPN’s become illegal? Or TOR? What about proxy buying cards? Will this really stop those that are dedicated enough from accessing porn? I think not. And that’s just to name a few… What I’m looking at is a company called AVSecure who have AgePass - https://avsecure.com/ which apparently secures age verification by using blockchain (Based on Ethereum Chain). They say: The AgePass Platform uses a zero knowledge proof system in combination with our customized version of the Quorum Blockchain (an Ethereum-based chain with added privacy features) which is capable of processing thousands of attestations per second. Our core concept delineates 'creating trusted statements about a known person' and 'the use of those statements'. Users go through a one-time initial validation process to produce their credentials which they can onward use in a way that will only be known to them. The user’s credential then generates ‘one-time’ use tokens when they visit websites in the future. These tokens are passed to the website providers which enable them to demonstrate compliance with the Law whilst also ensuring that their consumers leave no additional traceable information. I am considering using this as we won’t be holding your personal data in that regard, and UK Subjects can buy anonymous cards for £10 which from what I can tell will give you a one time use code or something that you can use for an anonymous account on any AgePass wall. They have other age verification means too, so it’s really up to you how you’d go about it. If you don’t care about your privacy, they can do credit/debit card verification, mobile, and various others. I think this is best thing we can do given the circumstances… I don’t think this will trigger for anyone outside of the UK, so if you’re an American for example, you won’t get ID’ed on the landing page for EcchiDreams, and you won’t be affected. But if you’re from the UK you will see something similar to this: When you come to EcchiDreams, if I can get it coded in time. If not then we might be forced to close our Digital Doors to people from the UK until such a time that it is coded and properly integrated. If this does happen you might want to seriously consider our other option: Get a VPN I personally use Private Internet Access as a VPN, and I’ve found it to be quite reliable and fast, I am not affiliated to PIA (Private Internet Access), nor am I receiving money from them, but I personally like the fact that PIA lets you tune the data encryption, authentication and handshake protocols of your connection, and does a damn good job of anonymising your browsing. I’ve been using it for a year and I’ve never had any problems with them. This can also be used on smartphones (Apple and Android alike), although the only criticism I have of it, at least from my perspective and experience is that on mobiles it can be a little temperamental especially when switching between WiFi and Mobile Data, has a habit of disconnecting every now and then, and finally the battery is drains quicker. But that might not be a problem for you. I’m not shilling for PIA; there are other solutions out there such as; NordVPN, ExpressVPN, CyberGhostVPN, IPVanish, SurfShark, Hotspot Shield, and so on, I’ve not used them so I can’t attest to them. So I ask that you please do your research and find one that suits your needs. EcchiDreams doesn’t block VPN’s, and we never will. This has other benefits, that you might want to consider this as a viable option. Please take a look at: https://thatoneprivacysite.net/ to find the VPN of your choice. I highly encourage everyone to do this. You can also use TOR, but EcchiDreams does actually block TOR registrations (But you can easily use TOR after you register). I just wanted to give you all a heads up, and UK Dreamers will receive an email in June letting them know about this as well. ---- Now… My personal thoughts on it? The gloves are coming off, and this is going to get quite political. You’ve just got to love the sheer hypocrisy, ladies and gentlemen! The politicians tell us what to do and say 'you must live a wholesome puritanical life, that's rude, you can't look at that, citizen’ like they have the power to run and control our personal lives, telling us what do, what to say, what to feel and what to think. Nanny-State doesn’t even cut it anymore… At the same time as them trying to act like our moral superiors, they are misusing their expenses, having affairs with their staffers and other high ups... Orgies and kinky sex parties that include some of the richest in any given industry who are doms and high-class escorts, who have a LOT of clients who are top police chiefs, politicians, judges, lawyers, officials and so on. It’s nothing short of Hypocrisy at its best. Welcome to Brave New World. I highly doubt that the main reason for this has anything to do with protecting children online, and everything to do with Government control over its citizens. They have forgotten that they work for us, not the other way around. I say this because it seems to be part of a wider problem with the Government which seems to be trying to take control over the internet. You only need to take a look at the UK’s white paper on “Online Harms” released last month. http://archive.is/3MuDH Or the Investigatory Powers Bill; in where ISPs are forced to keep a full list of ICR’s (Internet Connection Records) for a year and make them available to the Government if asked. These ICR’s in effect serve as a full list of every website people have visited. Articles appeared about it in 2015/2016 – and there was silence. Hardly anyone spoke up about it. The full list of agencies that can now ask for any UK citizens browsing history (As laid out in Section 4 of the bill) Is as follows: Metropolitan Police Service City of London Police Police forces maintained under section 2 of the Police Act 1996 Police Service of Scotland Police Service of Northern Ireland British Transport Police Ministry of Defence Police Royal Navy Police Royal Military Police Royal Air Force Police Security Service Secret Intelligence Service GCHQ Ministry of Defence Department of Health Home Office Ministry of Justice National Crime Agency HM Revenue & Customs Department for Transport Department for Work and Pensions NHS trusts and foundation trusts in England that provide ambulance services Common Services Agency for the Scottish Health Service Competition and Markets Authority Criminal Cases Review Commission Department for Communities in Northern Ireland Department for the Economy in Northern Ireland Department of Justice in Northern Ireland Financial Conduct Authority Fire and rescue authorities under the Fire and Rescue Services Act 2004 Food Standards Agency Food Standards Scotland Gambling Commission Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority Health and Safety Executive Independent Police Complaints Commissioner Information Commissioner NHS Business Services Authority Northern Ireland Ambulance Service Health and Social Care Trust Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service Board Northern Ireland Health and Social Care Regional Business Services Organisation Office of Communications Office of the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland Police Investigations and Review Commissioner Scottish Ambulance Service Board Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission Serious Fraud Office Welsh Ambulance Services National Health Service Trust Or even the UK Digital Economy Bill of 2017. I am rather cynical. At the risk of sounding conspiratorial; I think Brexit is a convenient smoke screen for all of this, a nice little distraction, including all of the current PM’s blundering and fuck ups. So a little history shall we? We’ve always had some kind of national webfilter and I didn’t have a problem with that because it targeted Child Pornography and stopped people from accidentally wandering in on a site back in a time where it was a very easy thing to do, and be exposed to it. I have no problem with that to a degree. It drove child pornography underground, and never wiped it out, but I don’t think that was the intention. I firmly and fervidly agree that we should eradicate child porn, and prevent its access. It is a noble goal. Even if it’s not totally achievable. But things started changing after 2010 at the hands of the Conservative/Liberal Democrat Government. At first David Cameron wanted ISP's to implement a child safety web filter at an ISP level that would be an opt-in thing, so that parents could use it could use it to block adult content for their children, and promote applications that could protect devices. This is good because it affirmed that it was the parents responsibility to protect their children, it was more of an order to ISP’s to make tools available for parents to protect their children. I have no problem with that. However it very quickly morphed into “Oh no; this will be an ‘Opt-Out’ thing. So people had to make an ‘Unavoidable decision’ to protect children.” Well I wasn’t happy about this… But I told my ISP that I wasn’t interested and they respected my wishes. Clearly - this hasn't worked either because apparently lots of people have either opted out or bypassed it. Now they're introducing this Age Verification thing. The UK has had a firewall of Great Britain installed almost a decade ago now. There was an uproar, but we were told that it will only be used to block sites like Pirate Bay, torrent sites. Originally we were told that this would be an open and transparent thing (As far as I can recall) that would have to be done by a court order… By the following year (2013) hundreds of sites were on it, including non-torrent sites - like TV Streaming sites, MP3 Download sites, etc. By two years after that it encompassed a metric fuck tonne of sites, oh and good luck getting a list of sites that has been blocked. That’s kept secret now as well. So we have no idea what’s censored or not. Some sites that are blocked have an ISP blocking screen that says that this site isn’t available because it’s been blocked by court order. Some sites however don’t show this and show an error message in the browser, but are magically there and online if you use a VPN. Now they're threatening to start blocking sites that aren't in violation of copyright. I’m sorry but it is not the Government’s job to implement these draconian actions it’s the damn parents of these children be the ones who are responsible for their children. And we're already seeing what else they're doing in terms of the online space. People getting arrested for jokes, sex stories that they've written, lyrics that they've posted online, expressing opinions on Twitter will apparently get you a visit from the local police (Such as there are only two genders) and so on. I’m not going to lie. I am quite worried about this increasing encroachment on our rights online. There seems to be an increasing curtailment of our rights online, and I honestly think it’s only going to get worse. As they justify the reasons to censor sites, it seems to be getting increasing easier for them to keep doing it which is exactly what I said would happen in 2009 on the Coroners and Justice Act 2009. I don’t think this is going to get better and with the Online Harm’s white paper, I think it’s going to get much worse. I won’t even go into how AgeID is owned by MindGeek which also owns several of the largest porn sites and porn companies so yeah… We’re not using them. No conflict of interest there… EcchiDreams has always upheld one of its oldest rules: Section 8 Paragraph 1, we have a zero tolerance towards members who are underaged, and upon discovery they get banned extremely quickly. We don’t want people who are under 18 on this site. We’ve always been responsible about this, and it honestly seems like we’re being punished for doing so, because “It’s not good enough.” I suspect that it will never be good enough for the industry at all. I think we need a digital bill of rights. Urgently. Who knows I could be overreacting, but as someone who’s been using the internet since the 90s, I don’t like the direction it’s gone in, and I don’t like the Government’s increasingly draconian laws to attempt to regulate something that they clearly have no idea of how it works.
  8. An interesting discussion idea that I had the other day: Do you think that out of context screenshots or game CG count as spoilers? Say for example that I provided a screenshot of one of the Gen I Pokémon games, to show an example of the warp panels or something. It may be of a single room in a certain building, but there's no context to it. Or, I take a screenshot of the route on which I caught a certain Pokémon. Taking it a little further, to the main point: background art in story modes, with no dialogue or anything like that, just the art... Do you personally consider that a spoiler? I mean, sure, you see the art before you get that far/unlock it, but it provides no real context. And, for example, say there's one thing you can do to unlock all background art in a game (without any dialogue/context, other than being in the correct order)... Would you look at the art before playing through the story mode? Or would you ignore the Gallery until you 'unlocked' all the art legitimately? Just curious about what people think. If this gets any interest, I'll share my opinion.

    Game Queue

    So we've had topics about our favourite games, as well as the games we have in our wishlist. But what about the games we do have, and yet haven't had the chance to play? I have a couple that I plan on playing, when I get the chance to. @Manni was kind enough to give me NieR:Automata that I plan on playing as soon as I can. The Long Dark has also been officially released, and I'm waiting for the chance to play the main storyline of that. So what about you guys?

    Kingdom Hearts

    So... yeah, Kingdom Hearts. I love the series despite Square teasing us with constant mid-series titles that you kinda must play in order to get the full picture (like the recently announced 2.8 that will add more stuff to Aqua in the Realm of Darkness and other things), I played almost everything, except KH 3D since I don't have a 3DS. It was one of the first series that really had me thinking about theories and stories inside of it, and I have books worth of theories about the series, from naming of characters, to event, to even symbols used, like an explation of how Sora could actually be the Keyblade's chosen one despite the fact that from Kingdom Hearts II is explained that anyone with a strong enough heart and that had the power passed by a keyblade wielder can use one; why Namine isn't exactly Kairi's Nobody and why she has power over Sora's memories etc. From a gameplay perspective, the series really is pretty unique because of all the different things they experimented with throughout the series, instead of doing what most people would do and just use a tried and true generic Action RPG system. The artstyle is very characteristic (despite often suffering from Nomura's signature "too many useless belts and zippers"), and manages to mix both Disney and Final Fantasy (and just recently other Square IPs like The World Ends With You, finally) almost flawlessly. The character models themselves are always pretty good, even in the original PS2 game, though sometimes not using a full 3D model for the face and mouth animations and resorting to simply usin textures to save space and processing power. And like every game from Square, good or bad, the soundtrack is 10/10, courtesy of Yoko Shimomura, that managed to create a both iconic and very Square-like soundtrack but keeping it fresh and new. Heck, I find myself listening to it when I'm doing other stuff, especially some of the more cozy ones like the Traverse Town or Twilight Town theme. I even do a full playthrough of the first 2 games at the hardest difficulty setting each year just for funsies and because I love the series. Though sometimes, as an italian, I wonder what a version with italian voice acting would sound like, since we only have the text translated, like every Square game. What about you? What games have you played? Do you like the series?

    Pokémon Wi-Fi And Discussion Thread

    Hi, everyone! I decided to use this section of the site for more than game reviews. The point of this thread will be to discuss the Pokémon games! Mostly to find battling/trading partners, though. Anyone with a 3DS and a copy of Pokémon X or Y is welcome to post requests for battling and trading. You will have to post your 3DS Friend Code and in-game name, however. Of course, anyone is welcome to join in conversations! Oh, and this is also gonna serve as a place to gather Friend Safaris. The Friend Safari is a place in X and Y that's only accessible after beating the Champion. Everyone has 3 Pokémon linked to their Friend Code. When you exchange Friend Codes, you'll be able to find the Pokémon in the Friend Safari. They tend to be rare Pokémon. I'll start off. Name: Tyler. Friend Code: 2320-6641-7872. Safari: Normal Type(Teddiursa, ???, Chansey.). If anyone has one of the following Pokémon to trade, I'd be very grateful. Volt Absorb Pachirisu. Skill Link Minccino/Cinccino. Adaptability Eevee. Drought Vulpix. I have good Pokémon to trade. Infiltrator Hoppip. Finneon with Psybeam, Aurora Beam, and Signal Beam. Pichu with Volt Tackle. Orange Flower Flabébé. White Flower Flabébé. Alright; let the Pokémon-related fun begin! ^_^
