welcome to lorem (ipsum)!

Ipsum. A mega-city that is located beachside, with mountains and a river surrounding its expansive homes and towering buildings. The city is beyond beautiful... yet none of the residents have any idea how they arrived, and have yet to leave, because Ipsum is a city you can never leave -- not by choice. People appear here without any knowledge where they are, no one knows what country or world they are even in. Yet, the city still provides for her people. Jobs, homes, goods are all readily available, and there is a place for everyone, be it the good or bad — Ipsum shall provide.

Please make yourself at home… you will not be returning to yours any time soon.

I have a few questions!

1. Must the English source for the Japanese medium be official, or can it be fan-endorsed (i.e. a fan-translation)? If the fan-translation renamed the characters, are we allowed to use the names used in the fan-translation or must we use their original name?

2. If a character has different names depending on translation, should we stick to one translation or are we free to use any of them?

3. If a character is able to bring other characters back to life, would plotting out a thread like that be feasible?

Thanks for your time!

I can answer two of these now, as the staff has discussed some of these in the past and I will likely be adding them to the FAQs today or tomorrow.

Your first question: We only allow official translations here on Lorem Ipsum, as fan translations can vary so wildly. We ask that original names be used, as well, due to this.

As for the second question: We ask that you use the most commonly known name within the western fandom. Like with Xander from Fire Emblem. We are aware that his name is Marxander in the Japanese version of the game, however, because he is known as Xander within the western fandom, that is the name we asked to be used.

I will have to get back to you on the final question, so please stand by. :'D

No problem!

I had two questions but one of them I'm struggling to remember right now, I'll ask it later if it comes back in my head, but I did remember one of them:

For avatars/icons, aside from NSFW materials, what other materials can't be allowed? I'm assuming things that are considered universal triggers (e.g. abuse). But would it not be allowed if there was some blood in it?

Blood is fine as long as the image is not showing an excessive amount of gore. We have no problem with a little bit of violence and such, but full on body horror and the like are not allowed.
