I would like to ask about a certain piece of wording, as it is actually rather ambiguous when considering the nature of what our characters often do on this site: (have sex).

"All face claims representing characters between 16 and 18 years of age must be fully clothed."

Fully clothed includes a jacket, and shoes, and pants, not skirts, etc.
I would like this to be clarified, is cleavage ok? Naturally, some skin will be showing, so I don't actually believe that my character *faceclaim photo* has to be wearing gloves and a berka, but, where is the line drawn? Bikini? Underwear? at least a top and a bottom? I do not envy the job of the moderators one bit, this sounds like a pain in the butt for ya'll.

So long as their bodies are covered with as much as a swim suit they are okay. In other words no nudity.

Please note that there has been a modification to the rules:

2. All face claims representing characters between 16 and 18 years of age must be fully clothed. They must also be of models that are 18 years or older. Staff may ask for proof of age to be included if this is not immediately apparent.

If you have any questions feel free to ask here or PM any staff.

Hey! I'm a bit confused by the wording of this.

Are you stating that even if a face claim is 18 and over, your 16 - 17 year old character cannot be anything but fully clothed?

Yes, 16-17 year old character pics (even though the model is 18+) cannot have genitals or breasts showing.

What if the character does nothing sexual and is either in a non-sexual game or is a side/NPC character? Do the face claims still have to be 16 and over even if the character may be younger (say 13 for example)?

The question includes drawn images of non-real people.

That falls under rule #1

No embedding images or videos of anyone under eighteen, period. The medium and context are irrelevant, though you may link to such material so long as it is non-sexual. This includes images of underage characters in the Non-Adult Roleplaying section. If you see such an image, please click on the "Report to moderator" link to alert staff to the issue. Photos, videos, and other evidence of exploitation of minors will be reported to the authorities.

Noted, but I have a logistical question... wouldn't this topic be better served in the rules and announcements category?

I think they already made the change in the rules and announcements, this is so if people have questions or need clarification, we can ask and our staff can answer them and all our members understand. :) Though could be completely wrong, it's happened on many an occasion

Exactly this.  People can't put comments in the Rules and Announcements threads.

The safest bet when finding a character picture/representation, research said face claim before using it. Even if it "looks" old enough it doesn't necessarily mean the person is. I made this particular mistake in my own picture hunting. Learn from my mistakes.  Look up ages, even if you think they are old enough, just to cover your backside.

And, if you don't know the name, reverse image search it. I've been getting really good at figuring out names and ages lately.

Many of the *booru-type sites will have character or series tags.  I find this very helpful.
