Content Warnings
and their application

We are all familiar with the rule on Witchlight concerning threads that involve themes that need to be marked for Mature Content, or Triggering Content, and everyone has done a great job following this rule. Thank you so much. However, as with any process, we've found a kink in the armor, as they say.

Content warnings will now be extended to character applications. Applications will not require a topic marker, but they will need to contain a Content Warning in their history. We will be implementing a code for this, but for now, please mark any histories that need it with "CW: subject matter" in Red.

Also, threads containing mature content or other triggering material can be further marked in the topic description, and using tag system, for what sort of [M] or [T] content someone can expect to see. Sex, gore, abuse, death, etc. Passing mentions of drug use, death or sex do not need to be marked.

Content Warnings that we would like to see are as follows:

  • CW: death
  • CW: sex
  • CW: incest
  • CW: sex with minors
  • CW: violence
  • CW: abuse (adult)
  • CW: abuse (child)
  • CW: pedophilia
  • CW: rape
  • CW: drug abuse

Please remember that characters under the age of 18 cannot be in threads that require content warnings.

If you require another content warning be added to the list, please PM The Darkness. We also encourage everyone to get to know the boundaries of their role playing partners.

Content Warning BBCode
For use in Applications Only

As mentioned in the previous post, there is now a Content Warning BBCode! This is to be used in applications so that anything that might be a trigger for someone will only be viewable if you choose to do so. You can find an example and the code below.

Content Warning: abuseshow spoiler
The part dealing with the abuse would go in here. Once you move out of this part of the history, you can take it out of the content warning code.

Witchlight is loosely based upon the Black Jewels Series by Anne Bishop though it has been adapted and expanded by our members. All lore, characters, and writing belongs to the members. Site graphics & custom codes were created by the staff. A special thanks to Wolf & Katarina for all their help with the planning of Witchlight and the writing of the base lore.
