Fridaily, Triggers, Ratings and Progress!

Thanks for the input on my last post, asking for input on what constitutes a trigger and what requires warning. The answers were... varied. Some folks find warning labels in general over-protective and irritating and some feel like it's better to be kind and safe. I'll be looking at some middle ground. I'll post my draft ratings at the end of this post...

My biggest push for the day, however, is commission-control.com.

If you enjoy watching works-in-progress, you may play along at home at this link. Don't register yet (not that you CAN right now...); I'll let you know when it's safe to. And most of you folks with lilypad and/or PA logins won't need to re-register. 'Cause I'm awesome like that.

You may comment about the look or anything else, all input is very welcome, even if I have been stabbing CSS all day and will not actually change anything. :P

* GC (General Content): No sex, foul language, or violence. Topics may still include loss, non-sexual romance and minor injury. No nudity in art.

* EC (Edgy Content): Some controversial issues as a focus, rough action, and/or coarse language occur. Sex and violence may happen or be referred specifically to, but are not graphic or in full view. In artwork, there may be nudity, but everything naughty is covered. (available for public viewing, but marked as such)

* SC (Spicy Content): Some sexual situations, but leaning toward romance rather than erotica; more is implied than portrayed. Some violence and rough activity, injuries are described, but not graphically. Frank language may be used. In art, bodies are not interpenetrating, but there may be artistic nudity and implied circumstances. (filtered from public view and only available to registered users over 15)

* AC (Adult Content): Explicit sexual activity is portrayed in detail. Graphic violence occurs on-screen. Expect frank language in fiction and un-obscured copulation in art. (filtered from public view and only available to registered users over 18)

In addition, there will be flags for the following kinds of content (more than one possible):

* T (Trigger): Descriptions of events such as rape, torture and abuse that may trigger flashbacks. Casual reference to such events does not warrant this flag.

* V (Violence): Significant injuries happen "onstage," possibly with graphic portrayals, accidental or inflicted. Character death may occur in full view.

* S (Sex): Graphic sexual references and encounters, on-screen or referred to in detail. Frank language.

* L (Language): Strong swearing (in English), verbal abuse, strong slurs, explicit names of body parts and functions.

All that... and I've also got new artwork up!
