Stalkers aren't the only issue, cosplayers are also chased away by the envious girls calling them camwhores and making a problem out of it or making unnecessary creepy or sexual comments.>>3427>Currently, someone asked about posting a cosplay, and I told them there is no place to do so. I feel like for every one person asking the question, there are probably several more who are interested but don't ask.
You're right but they don't know what kind of website this is, they are newfags, probably dont even know how imageboards work, if you tell them how the last few cosplayers left they wouldn't be interested.
There are two possible solutions if you make a new /cos/
1-The socially sensitive one:
Reinforce the rules there and enforce them, making it clear we want cosplayers to feel comfortable and to keep criticism civil.
PRO: It works and will make the passing cosplayer feel comfortable to post.
CON: I imagine a few users will be pissed by the "special privilege" cosplayers will have in the site, though
2-Make a new /cos/ and put a sticky on it warning cosplayers about the odds of imageboards like:>Yes we use the word "faggot" here>Trolls act like trolls and may try to offend you>There are girls here who will be jealous of you>There has been a big case of stalking so manage personal info with discretion
PRO: Zero drama, cosplayers will probably be imageboard users, less work for you.
CON: Less cosplayers.
