Don't worry, there are many other adult sites that would stir up controversy. Maybe shoot for a sponsorship by Paheal, or e621.I always wanted to fit gud at smash and be sponsored by *******.
But now this guy will be that guy who is sponsored by porn.
Miyamoto: Remember when we made a couple of short animated videos about the escapades of the Pikmin? Well, we've made more animated videos for viewing on our partner website Fakku of a very special variety...I think this could be the beginning of a wonderful relationship between Nintendo and Fakku. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Define "prude." And that's a fine attitude to have! "I hope I offended someone." What a callous thing to say.The more prudes this offends the better.
Smashboards has, up until now, been a staunchly all-ages environment. You can't even say the English word that Fakku's name comes from, and yet here we are, advertising porn sites on the front page?
So I can't say ****, but you guys can advertise places I can see people ****ing? Where is the logic?
I can't say we were advertising them hard, we warned people full and well what the website was and if they don't want to see that kind of thing to NOT go look., We never directly linked the website at any point in the article either, you HAVE to go out of your way to find this stuff after the article, and if you DID go out of your way you probably either wanted to see it or knew what you were getting into. People can take some responsibility for their own actions as well.For those who do not know, hentai is a subgenre of the Japanese genres of manga and anime, characterized by overtly sexualized characters and sexually explicit images and plots. FAKKU is by far a website not safe for work and those interested in learning more about the company should take care and follow all pertinent laws involving the viewing of adult related materials.
Well I guess calling @ The Derrit and @AlphaZealot for this one as they gave me permission to write the article. Whether people like it or not this IS Smash news and is about a subject we're all going to have to think about and face now. I wont turn away from reporting something just because it may hurt some people's sensibilities, I'd rather have them see it in the safe environment of Smashboards that to randomly run into it elsewhere. The original Tweet of the sponsorship shared on reddit had a direct link to FAKKU's Twitter, which I wouldn't visit unless you want to see something RIGHT in your face. :|
I would still maintain we are a family friendly website. We aren't flaunting the website, we're telling people "yes, someone in Smash was sponsored by a facet of adult industry" and we talked to him about how that went and what he thinks it means for our entire community which will have to deal with the development whether they like it or not as it HAS happened. We have had to cover other sensitive topics in the past and not turned away, and I hope we wont in the future either.Either keep Smashboards a family-friendly place OR don't. Don't flip-flop and flounder between the two. Show some spine. If you believe in tact and decency in the name of innocent eyes, uphold that standard. If you believe in freedom to flaunt porn sites, then don't play footsie. Go ahead, let it all hang out. Put your money where your mouth is.
Why? Are you saying that people are not allowed to get to together to share the things they like if it isn't something you approve of?
Look at the original post you're referring to. In his comment @PsychoIncarnate did not suggest the entire hentai community be abolished because he doesn't approve of it. He simply said he's disgusted about it, that's it. He didn't say anything about forcing this disapproval of his, just that it exists. Seems like you two are just over-reacting.Basically that
How dare people form an online community to discuss a common interest! Smashboards needs to go.
I never said they said that. I am simply expressing my disgust that people got together and formed an organised community over smash bros.Look at the original post you're referring to. In his comment @PsychoIncarnate did not suggest the entire hentai community be abolished because he doesn't approve of it. He simply said he's disgusted about it, that's it.

You're welcome to not like it, but this is news, and something that the community will be dealing with whether you like it or not now that Coastward is sponsored by them. Better to address it directly and respectfully than pretend like it doesn't exist.Lots of things
