    Alright...so this seems to be a hot topic on the boards, right now. I've seen points and counterpoints contributed to this idea...and I thought it would be an interesting experiment, to see where everyone stands as far as integrating "Adult Themes And Suggestive Content" on Neotopia.

    These themes can range from violence (blood and gore. guns. shooting. slapping, punching and full contact fist fighting) to scantly clad avatars...gambling (casino's and lottery's. betting, winning and losing your OWN Neobit currency. not just meaningless chips)...tattoo parlors (offering full service "needle to skin" graphing)....bars and night clubs (featuring smoking, drinking and exotic dancers on poles)....lingerie clothing lines and outfits (bra's and panties. nighties. slips and teddies)....sexual poses and animations (use your imagination on that. LOL.) And so on...


    THIS IS NOT A VOTE TO INCLUDE ANYTHING. THIS IS JUST AN EXPERIMENTAL POLL, TO GAUGE PUBLIC PERCEPTION AND OPINION.


    This content can be restricted and limited EXCLUSIVELY to an adult only (AO) server....gated and regulated via age restrictions and verified via credit cards and SSN...or any other means of preventing the "minor" population from accessing these areas and it's respective content. Everything you buy here, do here, activities engaged in and any other experience that may be deemed adult in nature (+18) would be LOCKED to this server. Meaning, once you leave the adult based servers....you lose access to all associated content...and any animations that may be provocative, offensive or sexual in nature, would cease to function...UNTIL you return to the adult servers. None of these themes or content, would EVER transfer over to the general public servers...and no underage minor would EVER be exposed or subjected to this material. By doing this, we can ensure the general public servers and it's population of all ages can enjoy their experience on Neotopia as they see fit, to their own liking....without ever having to harbor any concerns over exposure to themes they may find distasteful or any content that might disrupt gameplay and the overall enjoyment of the platform, itself.

    This is YOUR community. This is YOUR platform. This is YOUR decision....unless otherwise dictated and overruled by the development staff. LOL.

    Thought's and opinions are welcome...but there's no need for a controversial stand-off.

    There's over 370 people here, now. Let's see if this issue has any merit to even warrant a community vote, when the time comes.


    Would you like to see content of this nature, on Neotopia? Check your response on the poll, below...and let us know.

    EDIT: (ADMINS) If you feel the need to lock the thread. Im fine with that. But at least keep the poll OPEN and running. Thank you.

    I can't see why not, like you said as long as it is done in the correct manner. Virtual worlds should be all about freedom, escapism, expression and having fun!

    Oh yea lets watch little kids walk around with certain kind of adult toys, thatd be nice. As soon as parents see this stuff they'd take their child away from this game and neotopia will start to lose money lol.... We all definitely want neotopia to lose people and money...? This is suppose to be a FAMILY game not half family half adult themed/toys... I dont think this should be on the game at all... :(

    I'm for adult content if it's tasteful. However suggesting adding our SSN is not a good secure thing to do especially since sensitive information is always being compromised. Ever since Sony has been hacked the first time I never use a credit card. I always purchase a PSN card and redeem it to my wallet. It will be challenging to separate adult clothing / content from children. But if this will be 18+ then it will be looked at for adults anyway. Yes 18 - will enter and I don't think Neotopia should be responsible if a child gets their hands on that because they would have to be able to purchase that and their parents "should be" monitoring them anyway. Just like pshome now we have clothing that is adult like and kids will grab it if they have money in their wallet. I understand the concerns Neotopia will take into consideration but at the same time Neotopia isn't a babysitter. Yes a virtual world should be family oriented and for kids and for adults. So the question is how do you please all age groups? We live in the real world and sometimes that doesn't stop under age kids from doing adult activities illegally. Either way I'm ok with whatever Neotopia ends up deciding to do.

    To Seminole and to Mr. Unknown


    Still see people are argument that kids could see it Have you see the internet O.O!!! What could a person do with your SSN answer is not that much at all. It not that hard to keep adult off general area second life been doing for 14 years. Real world has sex clubs and sex parks and nudity beaches and other adult spaces. I see someone saying sex isn't reality or happening in the real world. I would like to know what fantasy land they where living in ?

    Neocortex will probably close this post, he said in the original adult post he'd close that down.

    I voted YES for this poll. Identity theft and Fraud can occur if someone obtains your social security number. Everyone knows that. I'm not going to argue over my statement because the thread will only be shut down like the other one. I'm entitled to my own opinion. I'll back Neotopia whatever their final decision will be on this topic.

    I hope so after reading the last thread which was closed this subject causes too much controversy ending up in being unproductive lets concentrate on the real issues here such as FUNDING as without that all this will be pointless.

    I personally wouldn't want this because we all know people would be immature about the whole thing. #MayorMoon #WardenMoon

    I'm sorry to take part in this controversial topic. Hopefully i don't offend anyone. :D

    My opinion is that there should be something for everyone. As Neotopia is most likely going to be a 18+ product, there opens a possibility for developers to include an adult content for those who wish to have that. As I can see here, there are also many who wouldn't like to have such content in Neotopia. I think this matter should be closely examined, and decide if there's a reasonable way to include this kind of content in a way that most Neotopians feel comfortable with.
