Is fictional gore not allowed in the site as well?

As said on the title. Is too much to post fictional gore, blood, and violence if it’s from a video game or from a series?

Is this thing allowed. If not then I’m extremely sorry for posting this and would understand if you removed these.

not that I know, but I’m gonna guess cartoony giblets like in TF2 are allowed

if it was guro (sp?) japanese anime depictions of mutilations and shit, that’s just graphic as fuck, I hope they don’t allow that

the picture you posted, that’s just blood splatter and demonic disfiguration, I have a feeling that’s in the grey area

No, too risky. Someone PM a mod or two with links to this thread.

Personally, I’d say that you can apply the same logic to gore that you do to pornography.

I wouldn’t allow CGI porn or something explicitly sexual in the forums without a tag. The same would apply to gore from a video game.
 
However, there is that gif of the guy whose head explodes. I would believe that this is against the rules as well, but I don’t do anything about it, because it’s so commonplace.

But it is inconsistent with the rules and the logic I presented. I’d like for another mod to weigh in though.
 
tl;dr: Treat it like pornography. NSFW tags, links, and thread titles, and use it only when it’s applicable.

Okay, I can post cartoon or game gore but I have to cautious to not got too far.
I’ll just give a bit of my opinion:

Pictures with minimal amount blood and small cuts in them don’t necessarily need a NSFW tag. But if the image has a large amount of blood and the cuts are more deep(say like a gash or a flesh wound), then those pictuere deserves NSFW. Your thoughts?

Maybe I should actually go see if I can’t dig up some truly disturbing Mass Effect images (which will most likely be dominated by the Reapers) and see what the local moderators think about them…

I think these are fine. Because it’s obvious it’s a game. But no extremely gory image like the one you found in r/WTF. If it will be up-voted/down-voted is other question. But nothing that involves intense amounts of blood and/or mutilation from REAL LIFE.

In brief: Fictional gore =/= Real gore

pretty much this. if you have a specific image you’d love to have on the site but aren’t sure just pm me or another mod you feel comfortable asking.

Or just jump in the IRC, just as fast.
