A question on whether or not a port would get accepted
«: January 16, 2009, 12:41:39 AM»
So I'm making this port (which, if asked I'll put a jpeg up of) that depicts a female cat anthro pointing a hand gun at the viewer. She's fully clothed, theres nothing questionable except the gun but I was talking with some friends and we had our doubts that the port would be accepted.

So does anyone have any idea if it would/wouldn't?

'cause I'd hate to spend the time to make the premade and then if someone bought it have them realize that they can't upload it ._.

13. Violent - Your portrait may be a beautifully rendered depiction of your budding warlord subduing and disposing of his most recent adversaries, but it's just too much or a little too blood-splattered to be acceptable to the Teen+ Standard. You might also be rejected for being too violent for depecting a gun pointed directly at the viewer, as this too is not quite Teen+ behavior. Edit it to tone it down, or if that's impossible, find a new portrait.

There's a strong difference between -DIRECTLY AT- the viewer, I.e. they are the intended target of the shot, and "toward" the viewer.

Here's some examples: Toward http://toushin.deviantart.com/art/Natalya-Portrait-29184782

The one's I've seen/heard of being rejected tend to fall into the second category.

Problem with things like this is DEP is constantly changing the rules and being unclear about them.

Flipping the bird was okay.

Then it wasn't.

Then it was.

Then it wasn't again.

So on and so forth.

I've seen many with the gun pointed directly at the viewer.

Maybe DEP got smart and figured out that a 95x95 port isn't really that intimidating, even with a loaded pistol.

If you're not sure, try it anyway.  The worst thing that'll happen is it'll be denied until they make a rating system for ports.

They consider it less severe if it's angled like that, since it's not "directly at the viewer."

Actually, looking at the second one, the bullet would totally go over my shoulder.... /useless
