Ok to post? Swearing in an MOC...
Join to comment
Alrighty so, I've been planning to post my brother's and my Lego comic/story as MOCs on my page.

However, I realized that I'd better read the posting rules first, since this is my first time. In the content rules it mentions language, as well as flagging content as 'mature'.

So I'm a bit confused. In the first two chapters there are two uses of the phrase 'what the hell' and at least four uses of the word 'd--n'. All are used in an appropriate (IE, logical) context, and the use of 'd--n' is only by one (bad) character.

Will this be alright to post? I was already going to mark the comic as 'mature' since it's quite violent and includes some intense (kid-wise) scenes and situations (nothing sexual, though). Will marking it that way, as mature, be enough with the language?

I just don't want to go to all the time and trouble of posting long chapters and large image files that I've taken hours to edit just to have them rejected or deleted because of the swearing. I also can't see any way of getting the same story without the language, so I dont really want to take it out.

Mods, can somebody shed some light on whether this will be acceptable (with the mature label/warning)??

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like it should be fine. There's been worse done in a MOC by the AFOLs.

She'll be right.

Worst case, Cap'n Phippy will slap a "R" rating on it.

Just say up the top that it's not safe for small children and you'll be okay.


I should know, I've been doing worse for years.

Yeap, these guys are right.

Just make sure to mark it as "mature content" (there's a check box for it on the upload page while you're posting your moc) and it should be fine.

Heck, with just those two words it doesn't even REALLY need the PG warning, but with how some kids over react to things it's best to just play it safe.

If that's all you have there, then you should be good.

There is the minor fact that if you do that, no-one'll see it, because A: they can't see the title, and B: they can't see who posted it.

It's the reason I don't use it, ever, even though some things I post should probably have it. Name recognition is 80% of the reason most people notice my MOCIA posts, and without it, pretty much nobody'd read them.
