Can you imagine a contest around Texas culture? They'd probably make cowboy hats, big ole belt buckles, and boots. Do you know how offensively stereotypical that is to every Texan? Nobody wears that sh*t here - except people who moved here from somewhere else and rodeo fans. So forget poking fun at us. I might cry.

Of course I'm being sarcastic as hell. But the risk is always there that someone wouldn't get it right, and then someone would truly get upset. And BVG can't do that now, because I will call them on it every time. You guys are going to get tired of me flinging acid and venom at their insensitivity. I will research every item they release for cultural accuracy and offensiveness and point it out to them. We will have dozens of Poly hat incidents in the near future. There's no more stating "just don't buy it if it's not for you" when it comes to items now. That's not good enough anymore. I don't forget stuff like this. They have set the precedent, and now they will have to eat it with every meal. I'm sweet like that.

:nerd:


i think there is a big difference in an item being culturally insensitive and offensive to people who's ancestors have literally been killed for what the hat seemingly represents to them, and cowboy hats in a texas theme

Well I was going to wait for someone to bring that up the first time I find BVG does it, but we'll get it started here. They don't get to pick and choose. There aren't "levels" of acceptable "cultural discrimination". It's an all or nothing proposition, or else they are knowingly and actively practicing DISCRIMINATION within their game. Can't have that happening now can we?

And you don't think cowboy hats are offensive? Why don't you ask some Native Americans about that, or Texans who are part of the tech wave down in Austin. They DESPISE the hat and see it as an insult to the new Texas.

:smug:


i'm all for culturally insensitive items being removed if that's what it takes for YoWorld to become a more inclusive place, i just don't think your example was in good taste

It doesn't matter now anyway. BVG decided it's ok to leave the Poly hats in Yo now. It's only culturally insensitive unless they have to do a lot of work. Then it's ok.

;)


I think Bvg's hands were tied with this. Why keep making a big deal out of it? They did what they thought was right.

110% agree with you, it's done with its dealt with, let's just move on and learn from this

Why asking for the digital files if the recreated design does not respect the shape and colors of the original?
I understand, maybe, lessen the tiny details a little, to make the item digitally lighter, that's reasonable.
BUT I'm talking about changing the SHAPE of an item designed by a player. Especially if digitally created and voted by players, changing shapes and colors makes no sense. And I'm not talking about shapes that change the avatars body (even it's been proved you can release them with no problem if you want) but items like jackets, earmuffs etc. wich, sometimes they are done with no problem, sometimes poorly recreated, ARBITRARILY.
Just make design contest from google picture only then, cos the hours a player-designer spent on its design are meaningless.
Happy Holidays :drink:

Ask for the exported type used to add the items in game, so the designers will provide all the items, seperately, and you guys add it straight away to the game.

Allow files to be submitted in .fla format. For some reason you guys stopped accepting that format despite all clothing items in game using it when exporting to .swf, its incredibly useful with grouping and getting creative with colours especially when doing rare hair variants. I submitted my Jester eyes back in 2018 and that was submitted using a .fla file format and there was obviously no issue using it as you used the exact files I sent without issues.

I hope moving forward to HTML5 restrictions like this will no longer be a drama because you can still export from Adobe animate to svg and png, catering to whichever format items will be with HTML5 YoWorld.

Perhaps allow the innovators to have input on how they envision their designs?
