Personally, I would put torture and limbs getting chopped off into Extreme. Nobody would stumble on it by accident, and make someone uncomfortable. I'd label the thread, too, with a warning, maybe. Like, "Caution, violence inside" or something along those lines.
I was afraid that would be the answer. I am not sure if I would be happy to have something that is basically an action-adventure thrown into the same category as explicit gore and tentacle moster ... (fill in the blank), as it might get lost among the threads with 'extreme' sexual content, but I will - of course - abide by your ruling. I suppose if I ever get this on the road and it plays well, the category it is in doesn't matter all that much at the end of the day.
You could always put [EX - rated for gore] in the title of the first post.
True, but if this gets off the ground it will probably (or hopefully) be a small group game. The more people involved, the higher the chances someone might forget to put a warning in the topic title. In a one-on-one that might well work, but for a group game it might be something that can slip through the cracks, once in a while. Better to go with a category that covers all the angles than overlook something.
If you are the GM - you are making the threads.
I guess that depends. Lets say I give everyone a thread where they can post what happens in their home. If two players interact in the "Character XYZ's House" thread it's up to them to keep things in line, far as I am concerned. I can't always look over everyone's shoulder and check what they are doing. Of course I would read those threads, to keep abreast of what is happening in the game, but I might not catch everything that happens at the exact moment it happens. The whole idea of GM-ing a forum game is pretty new to me, even if I have been admin of a very small RP forum, but new place, new rules, so I guess the best thing is to play the "better safe than sorry" card right from the start.
The scene took on a surrealistic quality as Corwin realized that his captors really meant that they'd get the information by any means necessary. Surely there were limits? This rash hope faded as two burly men-at-arms took him in hand and dragged him through the musty hallway to a room that smelled of copper and fear. When he woke, his mind had mercifully erased the details of what they had done, but the sodden bandage at the end of his leg attested to the depths of their sincerity. He wondered if he'd been able to keep his secrets.
