I try to keep out of this drama as much as possible. But I'm definitely salty that they made a compromise with allowing Zombies which is, as mentioned, against almost everything Plague stands for.

Honestly, i get the frustration, but it's been like this since like, 2015/2016
This is the first time they actually made a "clarification" post

It's about the age rating, It's about advertisement as well.

13 year olds, who are allowed here, are pretty fragile (speeking as a once 13 year old), and impressionable. They might see fungus or green blood and go "ew, freaky" and click away if they don't enjoy it. But it's not like it's they could just imitate growing fungus on themselves, right? That is clearly a bad idea.

And then it comes to open cuts and wounds, red, they bleed red.

Oh, those look cool. Right? That's easy to imitate, and I'm not talking about make up.

I'm not saying every 13 year old mimics what they see, but some may. And that's enough to varrent acting careful.

Fungus clearly looks fantasy, advertisement can vibe with that, cuts are to real. Way to real, you can't adverise- (checks adds) ...
Legos and...Casinos...???? On that.

Honestly, I severely doubt it is about advertisement considering what I have heard and seen, and I can confidently say that the things advertised in the sidebar contains worse things than scratches that bleed. I won’t say let plague be red, since the staff will go to their technicality that red is allowed despite reality. I will say, let plague have their survival, let plague have their wounds as proof that despite their pain they are there and they are stronger for it

I have always blindly followed behind you and stayed by your side, remember? May we embrace glory together, for back then we could not. Grant the proper end to those locked up here, and to yourself.

Frankly I find the green pustules and pus and ooze etc. waaaay more disturbing than blood/cuts in the colour red. And I say this as an easily triggered cutter.

Another thing I say as a self harmer: this nonsense you folks are spewing about kids seeing a drawn-on cut in a dragon game and wanting to try it out themselves? Please shut up. You have no idea what you’re talking about and frankly it’s offensive.
