    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.

Controversies

 

Narancia / cat abuse

About a year ago Riss adopted a five months old cat and called him Narancia.

cat2.thumb.png.43f9e703fded615bb03128800

Unfortunately Narancia started to have several medical issues (in particular, urinary blockages)

Later, Riss opened a Gofundme for Narancia's perineal urethrostomy debt.

So Riss has been accused of animal abuse by his followers. Young cats rarely get UTIs so it is probable that Riss is a neglectful owner and incapable of take care of Narancia.

 

Photoshop

Riss photoshops his photos without the photographers permission. Anything extreme, but here some examples:

E-begging

Riss is always begging for his followers money and acts like has no cash for his cosplay projects/cons.
But Riss has about 300 patrons on his Patreon (here) for the 3$ tier, so he makes lots of money every month. Riss has also a KoFi page (here) and gains support (and money) from his followers. His goals usually reach the 200/300% of the amount.
He is often complaining not having money for buying new games and punctually a fan buys the game for him, for example. 

DDLG / sexualisation

Riss is aroace sex repulsed and has said he does not intend to sexualize the characters because of his asexuality. 
But some time ago Riss made a ddlg version of Mina (from BNHA). There was a huge controversy cause Mina is a minor and Riss went on hiatus for a while.

(I searched the cursed photo of ddlg Mina EVERYWHERE but I can't find it, I'm so sorry!)

┈┈┈┈┈◦•✩•◦┈┈┈┈┈

Again, Riss cosplayed Lio Fotia (Promare) in a "demon version" which is very sexual in my opinion and he also called him "Lio Thotia". He was "shocked" when people viewed the pics in a sexual way. No excuse for the gross comments but the cosplay was clearly sexual.

Some time ago Riss posted this Instagram story:

Some users of course found disturbing the fact Riss had to restrain himself from children's underwear.

Omg finally I’ve been waiting for a thread on Riss. He always gave me bad vibes and the fact that his fans simp for him.

This post is so annoying bc he says he’s not wearing makeup but his brows are literally drawn on and he’s wearing color contacts. 
He had such a dramatic breakdown on social media that he was quitting cosplay and yet he comes back 🙊🙊🙊

It's 100% photoshopped. I mentioned this in the cosplayer personalities thread but you can literally see the jaw filters warp in their videos (would find an example but it seems their page is down atm?)

No matter his explanation, personally I think the change to "minteaprince" was strongly motivated by his old user name bringing up lolwcow and /cgl in the first few results of a google search. 

I hadn't looked at the instagram dedicated to calling him out in a while, but it looks like they've been steadily posting  https://www.instagram.com/a_smile_and_a_scam_chronicles/

Did anyone else read it as "Mineta Prince" at first? I thought it was a reference to that one My Hero Academia character lmao

OMG im SO GLAD there's a topic... one of their first cat highlights,

Screenshot_20200702-220047.thumb.png.643

To me it seems they were uncertain whether they are even able to keep paying for the basic needs, and I'm sorry if you don't have the money to pay for pet food  please don't impuls buy a WHOLE CAT! 

Of course when a cat gets ill, it's something we can't avoid but with statements like this i believe they couldn't properly take care of the cat for Jack squat but that's just what I think. 

It also made me livid since they ebeg all their funding... instead of going to some expensive as fuck out of state convention or a whole ass new cosplay, save the money to properly care of your fucking cat.

Also I don't get the whole e-begging for a whole new cosplay? just recycle a cosplay you aren't going to die from it.
