    What

    Look at the thread about Warhammer and sex.. Apparently, that is ok to stay on this forum page but the one about a movie I made a couple of months ago just had to be moved to a dead section of the forums in like a day so it could die off. Just pointing out the inconsistency and horrendous judgment calls made by some mods.. >> Warhammer sex is on topic but a movie inspired by the Warhammer lore present in TW:WH needs to be moved.. >>

    Apparently sex sells!

    I wonder if It's acceptable to mods if I make a post about Warhammer porn then? >>

    To be fair, the sex in warhammer thread stays fairly tame. Mature and lore focused most of the time. Even when broaching into speculation and what had been. Like Beastmens former tendancy, now suppressed, to rape to reproduce. This has been buried of course, along with half-orcs. Both once actual lore in warhammer though. Then theres Slaneesh, often measured wholly by his/her sexuality. Morathi and the cult of pleasure.

    Sexuality can be discussed as part of the lore and culture of warhammer maturely. The thread does a decent job of it for the most part. So it hasn't been closed. Compare it to the various threads that popped up upon the dark elf reveal. I may not agree with CA's interpretation of Morathi but the sheer number of threads derailed during that time was ridiculous. Im shocked that the sexuality in Warhammer thread did not follow suit.

    The reaction would depend on the contents. If you actually put porn on the forums, you'd probably be perma banned. If you started a discussion on whether slaaneshi cults engaged in a printed media industry, you'd probably be safe.

    I regularly disagree with mods and their decision to move threads to some of the long forgotten corners of this forum but in this case unless you were explicitly discussing the movie and not self promoting then I kind of get where they're coming from, most other sites would require approval by mods before allowing such a post as well.

    Looking at what one can do here and for how long without getting banned, I somehow doubt even that.

    Modding can be a bit inconsistent seemingly, but since the mods are only people, you can't expect much more. Still better than modding via algorithm.

    Well, we still have the "Auto-Moderator" who holds posts hostage for no apparent reason from time to time

    Sorry, I don't want to see your YouTube video. Good job mods.
    Game 3 must have variety in its core races. Ogres, Chaos Dwarfs, Kislev, and Demons of Chaos in its full iconic, glorious, undivided glory.

    Nothing seems wrong with this at all. One is a lore discussion that was kept (relatively) tame. The other sounds like a shameless promotion for your own content.

    Why should a lore discussion not be allowed just because it's taking about the sexuality of characters and races in the lore? That's lore too.

    Frankly more franchises should be candid about these things. Sexuality is a massive part of life for real world cultures. It should be the same for any species that breeds to reproduce. Ignoring it because you don't want to upset the prudes just removes a layer of depth from your fictional world.

    Just to be clear, the forum terms and conditions say, among other things:

    1.4 All decisions by staff are final. If you have a genuine question about an action you may ask the staff member who took the action, although they are not required to respond. If you have a question that remains unanswered, please PM an Administrator.

    Said initial question should be asked via PM also.
