The Kids

Post by ThaliaAnderson on 30th August 2010, 8:00 pm

Okay, I need to make an announcement, and please take it seriously.

Now, I'm going to try and be fair and keep my own personal standards out of this, and I apologize if they leak in.

I've noticed that there are a lot of pairings that involve a girl "accidentally getting pregnant" when they're teenagers. As far as I'm concerned, this goes directly against rule #2, which happens to be the rule that I take most seriously.

2) You will not discuss any immoral/illegal subjects. This includes: pirated content, warez, phishing, keygens, torrents, yaoi/yuri, any "romantic" scenarios (hopefully you guys get what I mean by 'romantic'. Yes, things can be fluffy, but if you get people laying the same bed, I will be severely upset). I understand that not everyone considers some of these things illegal/immoral. But, seeing as this is still a ThreeD website, kids could have been directed here from the official board. We're keeping everything at a PG level. If I see any posting of the above-mentioned type, I will first warn the poster to revise. If they do not, I will delete the post. Reoccuring immoral posts will result in a suspension of the user.

Of course, teen pregnancy points out that these "romantic scenarios" happened before marriage, which is, in my opinion, one of the most immoral things there are. When it comes to these things, I am linient when it comes to violence and things of the like, but when you introduce sexual scenarios, I draw the line as the admin of this forum. This is still a kid-friendly site, because Three Delivery is a kid-friendly show, and it's not up to us to make it anything less.

Sexual relations before marriage is the one thing that I will not stand for, and I feel like I've let it slide a little too long. If I brought this up earlier, then there could be been a chance of just taking it out of the forum completely. That was a mistake on my part. Now, I understand that some of you have already written out things involving the pregnancy of characters, and I do understand that it'd be difficult to rewrite almost an entire plot point. But if you have not written anything and/or can easily revise a story I want you to do if, if yours is a pairing with children out of wedlock. We should not be promoting this in the slighest, because this show is meant for younger kids than us. I don't want to be responsible for a child being directed to this site from the official messageboard and seeing all of this and thinking that such a thing is okay, because it's not.

I probably didn't mention it earlier because I didn't want to feel like I'm being the bad guy (I admit to having a problem with actually enforcing rules and making people unhappy), but I can't let this go on. I really just can't. I'm sorry if you feel like I'm coming off as being way too harsh or mean, or unreasonable, because that is not what I'm doing. This isn't anything personal, but just a matter of, "The admin set a rule, and it's not being followed" type of thing. And if I don't enforce the rules, I'm not being a very good admin. And like I said, this isn't anything personal--I'm definitely not saying you're a terrible person for having a pairing like this (you guys know that I love you all), but according the rules of the board, this is simply not allowed.

If you have it in your power, revise your scenarios--they had kids later, after they got married//they got married earlier. In reality, it's not that difficult to change, and it needs to be changed. If nobody volunteers a change, I'm going to have to throw pairings into a cup and pick some at random that will need to be changed. In a perfect world, I'd have all the pairings changed, but like I said, I do understand how hard it is to change everything about a story, if it centers around a pregnant teen.

All in all, I don't care if society says this is okay. Because it just simply isn't, and I won't let it go on.

Thank you for understanding, everybody.
