@ZorokiHanuke said in A list of changes that I think PSO2 needs in order to be more inclusive and appropriate for more players.:
@Anarchy-Marine Do remember that I myself posted a thread about me not liking skimpiness and sexuality in games like the one this forum is made for, yet we ended up as not-enemies, kek. I think the problem is not much what people request or want, but the tone they use to do so. The way a person expresses themselves, I believe, is of utmost importance and in many cases will dictate the responses they receive.
i do not know if ZorokiHanuke is right in all cases, but i think there is a lot of validity in not only what they mention about presentation, but about trying to remain civil so we can all discuss the topics at hand.
i want to dismiss much of what you presented mostly only because i have refuted these same exact arguments for years all over the internet, and it feels unoriginal, staged, or contrived that so many continue to regurgitate an old argument that has already been validly refuted.
i do apologize that i don't always come across as being kind and aware of other's feelings, & likely did not give that impression by my stern opinion of disliking much of yours.
when you state "inclusivity" right beside the word censorship, it becomes blatantly obvious to me that you are thinking idealistically without considering the ramifications or consequences of what you are asking.
as due to height censorship, smaller stature people have been "excluded" not included.
removing things from language, or content from games, censorship in general is never an actual solution to whatever the root problem is. sure, its easier to shoo things out of sight, and dismiss their existence, so they "no longer offend you" but all this does is sweep an actual issue under the rug, and solves nothing.
that is why i responded how i did, and usually do about these subjects being brought up to censor works of FICTION, when i know that real world issues exist and that energy would be better spent making the actual place we live & breath a better place than complaining about works of fiction or ART.
i tend to view the world from lens of an artist, although i am much more fond of studying occult sciences or philosophy. (among many other things, language, systems, cultuers/governments, religions, etc etc) so its very sad to see art perpetually stifled by censorship. but history shows that freedom of expression is much like other freedoms which must occasionally be fought to retain & maintain.
anyway, perhaps you could restate why you want this list of changes, and how you think it would be helpful. i personally like when people debate both sides of an issue it helps me know how far they've thought it threw, but you do you. i just dont understand but maybe you have a better explanation so i could perhaps see where you're coming from.
