Teaching minors to be back stabbing elitists that gank people for "tears" is healthier than venting their libido into a disease free virtual environment? -.^



If anyone is bored, insist that your "friend" for the night that you are "gifting" some ISK undocks because you want to "rub ships together" then do a Jack The Ripper on them. Twisted

Not even once

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

Yeah, I think it is. EvE is unhealthy enough as it is without having people openly turning tricks in Jita.

Kids learnt to be back-stabbing elitists quite well before video games.
As for cybersex, it's a trickier situation in a 12+ environment than an 18+ one (such as the 'notorious' Second Life).
Guess what it comes down to is: Think carefully and don't assume the person on the other end is an adult.

I don't know man. Some shady things go on. I know a lot of guys I associate with are dating their female counterparts in enemy alliances. Lots of information exchanging hands and DOTA being played...

When there are minors playing this game ...
... then minors are reading the forums as well.

So the forum should be much harsher policed ...
... because it's a pool of hate, negativity and hostility.

US logic? Nipples are bad ...
... but children seen violence in TV is fine?


I'm not saying you're a hypocrite ...
... but it's borderline.

Waste of time .....

.... because there will always be prostitution ...
... and even banning prostitution doesn't remove it.

I'm not sure what that would help anyone.

Hello, I am wondering if simulated prostitution is against the terms of service laid out by CCP. I know it is a funny question, but if you read my post history, you will see I do not troll. Please keep responses serious, respectful and focused only on my question(s).

Hypothetically: Let's say I would like to make ISK selling my virtual body. Would there be limits or restrictions placed on this type of in-game behavior? The sessions would take place via private chat, and only the sale itself would be announced in Local.

I would guess that in spite of Eve's reputation for unregulated market activity, there still has to be restrictions on the nature of the language used to promote the activity. What might those restrictions be?

I searched the forum and could not find past discussions on the topic. Has this ever come up before?

Reminder: Please keep responses clean and respectful.

You may not use “role-playing” as an excuse to violate these rules. While EVE Online is a persistent world, fantasy role-playing game, the claim of role-playing is not an acceptable defense for anti-social behavior. Role-playing is encouraged, but not at the expense of other player. You may not create or participate in a corporation or group that habitually violates this policy.



I know you will not like it ...
... but these are meaningless in the face of actual reality.

I know they are there.
I know people should follow them.
I know damn well that it's not the case.


IANAL (*snickers xD*) but it makes me wonder if the biggest reason for having these rules ...
... isn't just to be sure that it's covered.

You must be tons of fun to have around at parties.

Anyhow, since i started playing eve i have been convoed dozens of times in a "hey, want to cyber baby?" manner by strangers, so i imagine the market is there. How people could really do that without imagining the opposing "conversation" partner is anything but a bearded fat guy is beyond me, but hey, to each his own.

Please note that there is a difference between "cyber" and "erotic roleplaying".

People who want to "cyber" usually break character completely ...

... and are for the most part not the ones one would want to engage with ...

... unless it's with blasters ...

... in his face. :)

Well, i was paraphrasing, i doubt even the people that want to "cyber" are as daft as to open a conversation in the exact manner i was.

What i mean is, their intent was obvious. There certainly is a market if some randoms convoed me over my eve life (even before the new portraits were around).
