@Drayco84 said in NSFW Content on symbol art "solution?" Discussion:

I just want to ask one thing here... WHY aren't NSFW Symbol Arts allowed in my M-Rated MMO? It's pretty stupid to disallow something like that on an M-Rated or even ban players from making them when the age rating is so high to begin with. (But then, maybe they shouldn't be adding pointless virtual casinos in a Phantasy Star game. You all know I'm right, the casino was easily the emptiest place in the game. The only game that was really interesting was Mesetan Shooter, and needed multiple people to get the most of it.) In fact, the censored/cut JP scenes got kinda spicy as well, due to the fact that they were bath scenes. (But really, they were no worse than most anime with the same sub-plot.)

Furthermore, it'd be incredibly dumb to ban players because they made NSFW symbol arts, and some of them were really good/funny. The best option would be a tagging system where SAs can be marked as SFW or NSFW, with SFW set as default and the option to flag NSFW SAs as such to cut down on trolling attempts. As previously said, streamers and youtubers would LOVE this kind of feature, and younger players get protected from the reason why EVERYBODY exists. Meanwhile, the crasser/thirstier people get their raunchier content because, again, it's on the internet and features user-made content. Porn WILL appear, regardless of Sega's best efforts. (See those damn RMT spammers that never shut up and constantly change the text JUST ENOUGH to avoid the automated systems for proof.) Overall, their best bet is to have a system that lets the decent players moderate things since the devs will be focusing most of their effort on the game itself and playing whack-a-mole is very time-consuming.

They belong in an AO-rated game, not an M-rated game. Plus sexual content in Symbol Arts is against the Terms of Service. They should just permanently revoke the Symbol Art privileges of offenders.
