Celebrity Qualifications
« on: May 06, 2021, 07:26:00 AM »
Hey there, I had a quick question about celebrities that I was hoping someone could answer for me. I read the rules that says pictures of models and celebrities are allowed on these forums but I was curious about what qualifies a celebrity these days? When it comes to internet celebrities (instagram influencers, youtubers, streamers, etc.) are those good or is it more traditional celebrities that are okay. Also, in the past I've used celebrities as reference pictures for characters in my stories, is that alright or would should I still be specifying who the reference pictures are IRL? Thanks in advance for any of your help!

Only thing I could suggest is post and wait for concensus.

That's probably what I'll end up trying, thanks!

I think you would be fine to use a picture and if the person happened to come by and ask for it to be taken down then just take it down no big deal.

But you might want to wait for Lois or a mod to confirm.
I had a really weird signature when I came back. So I changed it to this. Hello :)

I don't recall where that rule was posted so I don't remember the exact wording. But I'd say anything put out by a person or their agents for purposes of getting noticed, or anything in the news about people whose job is to be in the public eye would qualify. I'd say anyone who wants to be a celebrity and puts their own pictures out for that purpose would also qualify. It's a pretty broad definition for our purposes here.
The rumors about me are scurrilous, depraved rantings of a sick mind, and I categorically deny any sense of falsehood attributed to them.
