    Sadly no. :( If an account has taken a username then no one else can use that name until the member switches away from it.

    11. Don't post porn or similarly shocking content (Graphic imagery, 10 points, 4 months)
    -Shocking content include (as well as porn) gore, scat, and shock pictures.

    I hope that it is against the rules to have pics of that sort.
    His avatar is fine, actually. A regular image of a girl in a swimsuit is allowed so long as it isn't revealing too much, haha. No worries!

    What if the account hasn't done anything at all and has existed for 2+ years?

    The username will still be taken by an account regardless of how long it's been inactive. So unless an admin were to wipe/rename the account or the user were to log on and change to a new name, no one else would be able to use it. :x I don't really like that myself, honestly.

    I might not hope to get into a bad situation for posting pics of chronicled, tasteful, gems. Use an ability to think and you'll be fine. I frequently imagine that every one of the aforementioned avatars of anime characters flaunting outrageously immense breasts is borderline explicit so the guidelines are a touch cloudy for me.

    That's probably best to bring up with the administrators as they're ultimately in charge of structuring the forum rules. But if I may.. someone in a swimming suit with cleavage isn't exactly something that would usually be considered explicit. You probably wouldn't go to the beach and consider a girl with larger-sized breasts in a bikini "explicit" as most of those "sensitive" parts are being covered; it's just the general consensus of how things are.

    But perhaps we can make some minor edits so it's clearer for those who have different viewpoints. @Iteru;

    As long as there is no nudity/it's not in a sexual situation, it's fine. But clarifying this is something we can work on if needed.

    If anyone has a question as to whether or not something is appropriate, you can always ask a staff member, too.

    Hey, I have a question. Am I allowed to post a discussion about Religion in the Pokemon Verse? I know religion is a controversial topic for almost any forum, but It's something I really want to do. It's not anything denouncing religion, or any religious persons, it's just a discussion about how it would work in the Pokemon verse.

    So long as it's not derogatory, you should be all right. There have been Pokemon religion topics in the past such as this one and things went all right there.

    Hey, I know we don't want people spamming the forums and I don't want to be doing it either, so how would I go about promoting my Pokemon podcast to people who I think would be interested? It focuses a lot on the games so I would want to really get to those on the the X & Y forums but don't want to be a bother to anyone. Thanks for the help.

    For people wanting to find who the artist is for a specific piece of art they can use the Google Reverse Image search:

    Question: How come my posts are "awaiting moderator approval", and how many posts do I need to make to get that lifted...? Couldn't find anything on the forums about that... :T

    How come you have to post a certain number of times before PMing?

    Its an anti-spam measure used to prevent spambots from mass PMing spam to people.
