Give me back my Symbol Art

@Ranmaru If you don't like the more out there symbol art, you can block and remove them as they pop up. Once you block it it won't pop up again unless someone reimports it, this solution just means that symbol art you blocked will get reimported and reposted and you'll have to reblock everything every maintenance.

If you're fine with Symbol Art being removed, great. I'm not. The drive of the game for me is the social aspect, showing off cool outfits, chatting and sharing memes and other symbol art during events. If we're gonna start getting shafted because some prudes cannot be bothered to press the block button I'm out.

@Zastier I've brought this up in another thread stating why the blocking feature isn't prefect. And that simply because it only blocks that file of that simple art it far to easy to literal just add another object to the art hide that object than save the image and it considered a new file thus it no longer blocked by anyone. An I've seen it happen multiple times cause I keep seeing symbol art I know for a fact I blocked. Plus using this as and excuses to justify the spamming of symbol art that breaks the TOS is just that a BS excuses. You are agreeing to not post said art to begin with yet people are still posting it than whining when you get punished for doing so.

It's unfortunate some safe arts got blasted in the crossfire, yeah, but I mean blame your horny neckbeards players for constantly posting legit actual sexual intercourse pictures in every turn. Can't yall go to Pornhub for this shit? Or are some of you big brainers here can't comprehend that "posting porn is bad" and then scratch your head as to why some of them are deleted? Like Jesus, it ain't Rocket Science.

@Zastier Symbol art must stay, but people have to learn to control themselves if i want porn i dont go to play pso2, you dont have to put porn in every aspect of your life to make it funnier, remember that there are kids playing the game too. I'm not saying symbol arts must be removed, im saying that people needs to learn that there is a place and a time for some things, and a game is not the place for nudes and sexually explicit symbol arts.

There's a pretty huge difference between "meme-ing" SA compared to racist and other vulgar SA.

I will blame the devs for doing a horrible job at removing the art. Perfectly sfw art got blasted, art with swears has been removed, but art of children, rape jokes and other much worse offenders remain? Who the hell even did this job? Why is art of slightly unzipped pants on a guy bad but a buncha chicks runing around the lobby in underwear and weird mostly unzippes titty body suits fine? Why can a character in a cutscene say "Shit" but my meme cannot?

If you are going to remove porn, remove the porn sure. But they didn't.

I don't see why sfw art with a cuss word should be removed, I can agree that is fine.

@Ranmaru probably just responding to reported symbol arts by nuking them.

Kinda wanna test it with a safe, perfectly fine SA.

Blocking art does nothing because people can just reupload it with a different filename/username, as I had to block the same one twice.

This also doesn't help people new to the game, still learning the cumbersome UI and their first exposure to symbol art being people spamming porn.

edit: I should clarify that I meant that the same SA will usually have a few different sources as it gets passed around along with very slight tweaks or just changing the file name, which results in multiple instances of the same one.

As someone wise once said: Ah shit... Here we go again.

Perhaps your specific post was reported by someone. Which could mean it either offended someone OR someone is using the report system to troll you, which in turn I may advice you to check both your list of friends and enemies. I seriously don't know what you posted. Hm, link to the image or whatever you posted, perhaps? Seeing it would let others see if it was worth a ban or not, at least. BUT nobody's forcing you.

@Zastier They removed all your art because it all tied into the same file it technically impossible for them to pick out just the inappropriate art. An whining over your non inappropriate art being removed still doesn't change the fact you admittedly had and posted inappropriate art. So no it not the moderators fault and your not getting any sympathy for your actions here.
