Inappropriate MOCs
Join to comment
Since I'm too lazy to scroll through and find a topic just like this, I've created a topic where you can report inappropriate MOCs.

I've already found one: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/365649 While the overall model isn't inappropriate, the name is somewhat vulgar.

I actually find his poor spelling and grammar quite amusing, but I agree, it needs an over 18 filter.

What he's written technically aren't bad words, but it doesn't take a genius to work out what he was aiming for.

I also found another thing of his that apparently has herpes.

He's probably 12 and trying out some bad words on the internet. If he realises no one cares he'll stop.

As Phipson has said, the person is an obvious Troll. Those who have commented on his creations, for the most part, have done so in jest. He appears to have done almost nothing, and I suggest that either the account be deleted, or just left to it's own devices.

If we get the proper evidence, we can take action against anyone who's stolen a MOC (ie used images without permission or assumed credit for someone else's work).

I also keep a record of wrong-doers on the site. The first time they get a warning, but additional infringements will get them banned.

actually, take a look at the one you gave a link to, his most recent and some others- they all have.... ummm.... 'canons' in the inappropriate area. we need everyone to ignore him. no one comment on his MOCs and say something about it- that's exactly what he wants.

I'm going to try and bump this along as his trolling is getting out of hand. His choice of language alone is sufficient reason for all his mocs to have mature labels.

I agree there should be a problem content button on the comments section so that we could report this kind of thing anonymously as a troll like this is likely to take lols from victimising anyone who criticises him publicly.

His homophobic comment went too far as far as I'm concerned, I've no problem with people having their own views, but a Lego website is not the right forum to air them in my opinion.

Okay, just so everyone's "in the know..."

I had a look at each page, and flagged a few for Parental Guidance. I also deleted one for inappropriate content and advised him to tone it down, or risk account deletion or a ban. We'll see what he chooses to do next, it's up to him.

This isn't just over 18 content, but also rude behavior that we're looking at (which personally I find more offensive than the content of some of his images). If you guys find he's having a lot of trouble...shall we say, playing well with others...I'd appreciate it if you could let us know here.

One of the downsides of MOCpages having such a huge Christian following is this kind of thing is bound to cause problems.

I wouldn't want to speculate, but I seriously doubt they would have any comment on satanic imagery, that tends to be exclusively a Christian bug bear.

As someone who veers more towards atheism I find the whole debate about "appropriate" content ridiculous.

There are three levels here:

banned - the rules say don't post.
allowed but potentially offensive(including mature content, nudity, violence) - add PG filter
Safe - no filter required

Only a troll would even WANT to put anything in category one, or refuse to add the filter when asked (officially) in category two, and trolls should be banned, end of.

It can be summed up as 'trolling'.
Satanism isn't so much a 'religion' or 'belief system' as it is a deliberate- and clumsy -twisting of various symbols Christians hold dear. Considering how well mocpagers in general react to being trolled, it's no surprise it led to drama.

Probably be much the same reaction if it was a page mocking the biggest fire truck group, whatever that is.

I know of a couple...but they have PARENTAL GUIDANCE SUGGESTED on them should I put them here or not?

PG has to be clicked through. The rules, as I understand them, are that by doing so you give up your right to be upset; you were warned and looked anyway.

Of course, X-rated is something else entirely.

Can someone please clarify for those of us who are sane how that page is in any way race-ist?

I would have thought the issue would be the 'chest' cannon.

It was the part about how he'll use his German communist powers to destroy us all. I guess it's offensive to Germans.

Can someone please lock this thread if nothing is going to be done about this "person". I'm sick of these circuitous conversations.

And to anyone who can't get why this stuff is pushing the guidelines, if not actually breaking them, I suggest you actually READ the rules rather than just guessing or asking someone to caption them for you.

Parental guidance warnings

What is it?
Safeguarding creative freedom
Safe browsing mode
What protection do I have?
Who puts the warnings in place?


What is it?

MOCpages flags some LEGO creations to let you know they might not be appropriate for young children. They won't be shown to you unless you want to see them.

This is not a category for pornography, racism, or other topics that MOCpages strictly disallows. Content that violates our terms of use is deleted entirely.

This is the kind of content you might see on prime time or late night TV. More mature themes, depictions of violence, light profanity, or nonsexual nudity may be present but not deemed so intense as to require that parents be strongly cautioned.

Isn't LEGO for kids?
MOCpages is also home to a huge community of teen and adult LEGO hobbyists that create some of the most amazing LEGO creations the world has ever seen. They are a huge inspiration to the children that visit MOCpages. Many would have otherwise left if they felt censored.



Safeguarding creative freedom

MOCpages believes in safeguarding creative freedom. There are two parts to this idea:

Creative freedom is the opposite of censorship. Our community members should feel like they can be themselves... They are the true heart of MOCpages, and without them, we have no one to look to for inspiration.

Safeguarding gives people a way to avoid content that they may find objectionable... which is a subjective and personal decision.

It sounds like it's an oxymoron, but these ideas can coexist when there's a rating system and content warnings.



Safe browsing mode

When you use MOCpages, you are by default in a safe browsing mode. This means that a LEGO creation that might not be suitable for children will be blocked from view until you opt to view it.

Safe browsing mode OFF
When you have left safe browsing mode, you can view all content freely, without any warnings or obstructions. A message appears at the top of every page that lets you know safe browsing mode is off. You can click on the link in this message to return to safe browsing mode.



What protection do I have?

In lists and searches
When you come across one of these LEGO creations in search results, groups, or any other kind of list, it will appear as (Title hidden) and might not have a photo. This is MOCpages' way of hiding the content from you until you have a chance to indicate whether you'd like to view it.

Viewing the LEGO creation
When a you try to view one of these LEGO creations, you are warned that the LEGO creation may not be safe for children and asked if you want to continue. If you continue, you will be brought to the LEGO creation. At this point, safe browsing mode will be switched off, and MOCpages will not warn you before viewing future pages.



Who puts the warnings in place?

Anyone who adds a LEGO creation to MOCpages can declare that it may not be suitable for children. They can also edit existing LEGO creations and set them this way.

MOCpages moderators can flag any page if they feel it is appropriate. Once this happens, the person that added the LEGO creation will not be able to remove the warning.

Community members can also suggest content that they feel should be flagged by submitting it to a moderator in our Help forums.

Ok guys, apologies if I came across a little Angry on Sunday. I have been monitoring the comment reviews queue for this group and seeing mostly unnecessary stuff, particularly in this discussion, awaiting moderation. The nature of these comments (which DID break the rules) made me quite mad, as the language used was completely uncalled for. Added to the fact that it continues to frustrate me that this individual receives attention he does not deserve.

Can I respectfully ask for the thread to be locked, and until it is, can everyone refrain from debating the issue further.

As someone pointed out in a comment I did not approve (because the comment broke the forum rules on language), the guy has issues, but having issues isn't against the rules.

PLEASE continue to report problem content, but Only NEW content. Sean made a judgement call in the case of this member http://www.mocpages.com/home.php/104301 and we need to respect that.

Thank you.

Perhaps I'm in a minority here, but I don't think he/she has issues at all. To me this builder's creations are clearly a joke poking fun at certain Bionicle builds on MOCpages.

He/she most definitely is not serious, and to be honest I'm hugely surprised that the joke isn't obvious enough that everyone's got it. It's no different from Chris Phipson's 'Mi Awsum Halo page!!' creation.

I think MOCpages is a richer place for people like this, who can poke fun at MOCpages' (and the community's) foibles : ) Lighten up!

Ok so it's a joke. I'm sorry but I still don't see how that justifies not putting the PG filter on what are clearly images and descriptions unsuitable for younger members.

I'll admit, I don't get the joke as I don't follow or care about the bionicle groups, but at the same time I do understand why younger people might be upset by phallic symbols and upside down crosses.

Adult themes should be filtered.

Yes, totally agree about PG. But I wouldn't worry about 'undeserved attention' - all the positive comments on his/her MOCs are ironic/sarcastic too : )

If only he had comments successfully enabled, then I could tell him to change it to 'parental guidance'. Then there'd be no issue.

That's probably why he has them disabled.

I put the PG warning on it. If he uploads again using that language without the PG filter and someone happens to see it please let us know and we'll take care of it.

Thanks.
