*The fictional age of a character is generally disregarded when judging this. This is due to the fictional character potentially having the appearance of a child and being over the legal age, or being aged up to look older than their fictional age. We tend to base our judgement on a head-to-body ratio and their physical appearance.
**We disallow photography of real people due to cluster of issues it brings with it in moderating.
We are still trialing our terms during the beta, these may be subject to change at a later date.
