Tentacl had an ad on Batoto. "You've never seen the little mermaid like this". And the image was a mermaid being tentacle-raped. Just the top of the image. Very classy. stare

I was kind of surprised since I recognized the source.

...Wow, they better hope their asses don't draw enough backlash to make the sun explode from that.

I'm just kidding I WANT them to draw backlash for that jfc the marketing team is cancerous.

Could we please stop saying that she is being raped in the add. Just because there are tentacles doesn't mean she is being raped. Jesus people.

Edit: Even if they are doing "dirty" things it doesn't entail that its gotta be rape.

Can tentacle monsters consent? She might be raping it.

Do mermaids even have vaginas? So many questions!

Eh, even when that other site came out...I look at it, and just clicked away. It was not what I liked, which was simple, stupid, forums. Where I could easily tell who was who, and the threads weren't confusing.

I am a simple old person. 18+ sites are too crazy. I want sites made for little kids so I can understand how to use them. rofl

There's one thing I would really want to know about all those Tentacl ads: are they really showing to people which are subscribed to the site while clearing stating they are under 18? If yes, then there's clearly a problem with those ads. If not, and only people 18+ are seeing them... I'm not sure we can really consider that as an argument saying a PG-13 site are breaking their rules. That said, I would agree with them adding a "Mature Content" filter for those over 18+ if they start to have too much of such content -- this way, if someone wanted to opt out of it, they could. It's something which is done on other websites, so why not here too?

Guess it's the cheapest way to go about advertising, since they are sister sites and all.

I don't know, I'll probably join if they rename the site. I just can't take it seriously because of the name.

I used to see Gaia ads all the time, but I have yet to see a tentacl advertisement outside of Gaia. It's pretty weird.

I sometimes have really terrible nightmares of sheering sheep for wool to try to rank up weaving (with knives that break unless you remember to farm for holy water and really tiny inventory spaces and completely RNG results that often work against you). Or forging where at higher levels it becomes more and more impossible because you need to also fail to rank up.

Don't forget RPS battle system that curves to your level so you can always somehow, someway, be one-shotted by a skeleton and have to restart your quest. And buying a pet so I can use it as bait and beat up the skeletons. emo

On topic. I do think it's inappropriate. It's an 18+ site. I did hear that they put NSFW filtering on the front page so some kid doesn't randomly click to spinning dickcopter. But still. 2003 and 2004 there was a Linklist that also contained an 18+ section to hentai websites and that was removed because it was thought too inappropriate for the site. Same with the Personals because it was full of people being raunchy. Now this. How wonderful.

Agreed. Someone told me once that there was a girl who posted a link to a piece of art in her photobucket, and then she got banned because in that same file of her photobucket there was some NSFW/hentai art. So because she posted a link to a page you had to click about four pages further to get to porn her account got banned. If this is true the Tentacl advertising is hypocritical as hell.

And even if that didn't happen, I still think the Tentacl advertising is inappropriate. I may be biased because when I first visited the site there was no NSFW filtering and the front page had the infamous dickopter, and of course I was on a train full of people when that thing spun by on my big laptop screen. Silly me for thinking that the site would be safe if I hadn't even signed up and verified that I was 18+ yet. To me, the whole site resembles anything but actual adults and is just infested with hormonal teens looking to cyber and exchange n***s. I don't see any real draw but the porn.
