Can you upload a profile into RGB Share directly from CUE2?

Recommended Posts

All profiles that are uploaded go through me, to give an example why, i once saw someone use a bear smoking a joint as the image for his profile. As you can imagine, this was a no no.

 

Why was it a no no? Are you a 16th century Puritan?

:wtfman:

Well, most companies want an adult image, prohibiting pornography, profanity, and excessively graphic violence, so it makes sense to check images for appropriateness.

 

:rant:

I feel that as the Merriam-Webster definition defines "Corsair" as ::pirate:: pirate, that you should reconsider being overly puritanical as to censor a bear enjoying a handrolled cigarette, as Corsair (the company) uses piratical imagery without condoning piracy or violence; the company is pro-gamer (although the high-quality gear is also excellent for non-gaming usage).

 

Now you call it a "joint", but note that even so, it is not something that is universally prohibitted, and some people fight to use it for medical purposes--show some compassion, please.

 

:shootme:

DEA Chief Administrative Law Judge Francis L. Young ruled that cannabis did not meet the legal criteria of a Schedule I prohibited drug and should be reclassified. He declared that cannabis in its natural form is "one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man. (T)he provisions of the (Controlled Substances) Act permit and require the transfer of marijuana from Schedule I to Schedule II".

 

:wtfeh:

As a witch, I feel very strongly that people should not be censored, especially for rites of pleasure! Allowing imagery such as crossed swords used by pirates to kill people on ships they plunder and disallowing a smoking bear seems like a very bad image for Corsair.

 

:shakeit:

Please reconsider your stance, and post objective criteria you use to censor images, as you represent Corsair. Or do you think of Pirates the way Disney now does? https://ww2.kqed.org/pop/2016/05/26/this-ride-is-out-of-order-why-disneylands-pirates-of-the-caribbean-needs-fixing/ :roll:

A bad image to Corsair by allowing inappropriate images to be shown on their software even though it is user created content.

 

I mean, it's only a joint. And yes, it's an illegal substance in some parts of the US and world. But it's 2017, it can't hurt to be a little open minded. What if the creator lives in Amsterdam? Its legal there. It's legal in California.

 

Also would uploading a pic of a cig be ok? Because those will actually kill you... :sigh!:

 

A clear and concise guide line should be published.

I don't care about pot or bears smoking it personally, I'm just making sure nothing that would seem inappropriate gets onto the site. It was not a real bear, it was a photoshopped bear with super red eyes and smoke flying out, and the background was 420 written all over lol. I mean i did post a "Joint" profile onto the share site, it was a joint that burns across the keyboard. Here it is: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=158158. By the way, the guy who uploaded that bear smoking a joint had absolutely nothing to do with his profile. It was not even a 420 or Rasta related profile.

Hi all,

 

Krazykid is assisting us with approval of profiles and we have entrusted him with discretion to approve and to decline submissions based on any included information including images and descriptions. However, if you felt that your profile was unfairly declined, you're welcome to PM me anytime for an official review.

 

Now as for the debate with marijuana, while I understand many points, a Corsair website should not be the place to post things unrelated to the topic or to the product. Since we have people of all ages visiting, we shouldn't have bears smoking as visualization since its unrelated to the topic. It's not something we should be showing to all ages similar to how you wouldn't want a bottle of Prozac as an image (which is also legal and aids in many medicinal purposes). Also, to correct a previously stated comment, we are a pirate SHIP, not a pirate itself. We do poke fun at pirate themes but overall, a pirate is not our logo and piracy is not what we represent.

 

All imagery must give the Corsair brand a premium image and also appropriate for anyone visiting our page.

I appreciate your clarifying comments. I did not think the company repreesents "piracy". Do note, however, that on my own K95 RGB I have an older logo, a pair of crossed cutlasses of the sort used to kill and maim people, and not a pirate ship.

 

Apart from logo symbolism, looking at the word "Corsair" itself, note that it is defined as pirate. I figured that the ship (and formerly cutlasses) were metonomical references to "pirate" (aka Corsair).

 

CORSAIR fans from around the world have used our RGB software to create stunning profile artwork for CORSAIR RGB peripherals. Consider me stunned.

 

DO IT WITH THE LIGHTS ON

SERIOUS SKILL DOESN'T HIDE IN THE DARK Seems like the company isn't averse to innuendo; this tag is as connected to technology as somebody liking to game while having a relaxing smoke, and chooses to share their creative profile artwork.

 

Now apart from the etymology of the word "Corsair", I never thought that Corsair stood for piracy.

 

 

Over Corsair’s twenty-year history in the PC business, the company has pushed for innovation even when others said it couldn’t be done, gaining the trust of gamers building their dream PCs. Corsair Gaming now brings Corsair’s legacy of technical prowess and high performance to PC gaming peripherals. Forged from a commitment between engineers and gamers, Corsair Gaming is driven by a philosophy of uncompromising performance, style, and comfort.

 

I do, however, expect that Corsair Gaming follow the philosophy of uncompromising performance, style, and comfort, so if a a person chooses to express their creativity using their own personal style, why would Corsair compromise it when it is neither illegal nor immoral. It is inconsistent to allow a letter "S" CUE profile artwork that is irrelevant and then claim that banning another on the basis of irrelevancy, rather than a person's (not company's) standpoint may find it potentially offensive, rather than as expressing support for Corsair's ideals of allowing uncompromising style.

Keep kids in mind, I don't think parents would be happy if they saw a bear smoking pot. Corsair went back to the sails logo.. Corsair is also an airplane and not just defined as a pirate. Pirates are a lot less likely to come into mind of a 10-year-old than a bear smoking pot. Why take the risk of approving a profile with an image like that when he can easily make it more appropriate in general? Also what about Razer, don't they represent a possible weapon? I fail to see your argument with the names of companies and a medical herb. The bear smoking pot can influence younger kids to think its moral to go around smoking joints all day thinking they are cool, not even for medical purpouse , which is a topic in society now a days.

Origin and Etymology of
corsair

Medieval French & Old Italian; Medieval French corsaire pirate, from Old Occitan corsari, from Old Italian corsaro, from Medieval Latin cursarius, from Latin cursus course — more at course

 

First Known Use: 1549

 

:werd:

Where do you see the English word "Corsair" defined as an airplane?

 

Remember; you are talking to a person named Comet; however, the English word "Comet" is defined as a type of astronomical object, regardless of the fact that the "name" of "Comet" has been given to car, plane, horses, in addition to myself. Please understand that the dictionary definition no more redefines the word "Comet"'s meaning in the naming cases, any more than naming a dalmation "Spot" redefines the meaning of the word "spot". Be aware of use/mention distinction!

 

In any case you are far away in framing Corsair's written philosophy by performing censorship on the basis that a parent may be offended. Some parents are offended by violence and weopons. Some parents are offended by children spending time gaming instead of studying. Please note that I have given the documented philosophy of Corsair (as well as the definition of the word "corsair") with references.

I request you consider your decisions to allow for innovation and gamer's trust, such as those games who trust their user-contributed content to communicate their own philosophy of style. Corsair's statement is that they support gamers and their style, comfort, and performance. I hope you do not mistake my meaning; I try to be clear and precise. You are going off kilter in not considering the gamer first, but considering some possible "parent" who might be offended. Note that some gamer specifically chose some perfectly legal artwork. Gamer's art and philosophy is, of course, those of the gamer, and not those of Corsair. Corsair is simply the vehicle used to communicate this. Most web sites hosting user-contributed content have exactly such a disclaimer so that they can allow people to freely communicate (as long as its legal and not something that is obscene or otherwise not legal for site of minors -- showing a smoking bear, even with the various symbology (e.g. 420) which an innocent person (such as myself; I looked up the meaning of 420, though) would not be affected by.

 

:wtfman:

 

I highly recommend that Corsair's legal department post a professional statement (e.g. https://www.facebook.com/ASUS/app/118896698189773/ ) so that rather than imposing your own censorhip based on your own moral judgement, and simply allow people to post that which is legal and expressive of their style.

 

It seems to me that doing so would best support Corsair, the company, in the philosophy that Corsair has put into print.

Honestly if they make it perfectly clear i won't care. I didn't take the risk as i was told to decline said methods of imagery to keep it all age friendly. But i guess all those kids are gonna get there anyway so **** me right?

Hey, I think you are doing a fine job, and I APPRECIATE your work, and I do not disagree that you MUST do what you think of as right, and it is great that CorsairJames supports you.

 

Note that my issue is 1) objections should not be arbitrary, and 2) ideally, IMHO, no objects to legal content.

 

Now, being that you have been "told to decline said methods of imagery to keep it all age friendly", (not that smoking is unfriendly to any age; take a look at history), perhaps you could simply document the exact rules, or is it just a general guideline where you are supposed to think, based on your own experience and judgement, Hmmm... "is this age friendly?" I think that is probably the case, but it is not a professionally supportive directive of the kind to which Corsair aspires! (I think the current terms-of-use indicate that the area is only suitable for people over 12, anyway, so don't have tgo worry about corrupting the innocent so much....)

 

I do hope that my previous posts lead to the action that Corsair's legal people post a standard disclaimer on user-contributed content (UCC) so that there will 1) not be censorship based on arbitrary judgement, and 2) the gamers who want to post feel that Corsair values their style and time, and 3) any readers/viewers will see explicitly that the UCC does not necessarily represent the viewpoints of Corsair.

 

It seems silly to me that somebody would attribute to Corsair some UCC's implicit message, so one has to defensively prevent this, when many companies simply speak with their marketting and legal staff to allow for UCC to represent the style of the person who contributes the content.

I don't care about pot or bears smoking it personally, I'm just making sure nothing that would seem inappropriate gets onto the site.... I mean i did post a "Joint" profile onto the share site, it was a joint that burns across the keyboard. Here it is:

 

:damnit:

Given that you allowed your own posting of a "Joint" profile to be posted on the share site, it is apparent that as you are the arbiter of what is allowed that you do not hold the same standards to your own work. Shame on your hypocritical behavior!

 

:nutkick:

Show some empathy and imagine how you would feel if you were NOT the gatekeeper, and somebody else blocked your submission on the grounds that a joint burning across the keyboard is not an image endorsed by Corsair as it doesn't represent corporate policy, and that some parents might be offended....

 

:laughcry:

If you do this exercise, you may begin to see why censorship is a real issue, that is worthy of passionate debate.
