Thanks for the input. I can see where you are coming from, but I don't agree with some of your points.
1. This is fiction we're talking about.
The world of idols is based on fiction. People like idols because they can support them, they can root for them and they can fantasize about them (hence the dating games, gravure shoots, etc. etc.).
2. The fics here are mostly harmless. It's not like we're talking about hardcore BDSM-themes or detailed porn or graphic artworks involving underage girls or anything. In the case of Rukaeru one could debate whether she went too far with the suggestiveness and whether these things should be more regulated in the fanfic section, but banning everything from not-so-innocent kisses to 'perv angel' nicknames is overdoing it in my opinion.
I agree that the cut-of point between "innocent kiss" and "not so innocent kiss" is a grey area. That is why this entire discussion is so difficult. However! As a community website we have legal obligations as well, and from that viewpoint we simply cannot allow our board to be used as a network where people come together to write (and thus fantasize) about the "sensual exploits" of under aged girls. It's as simple as that.
3. At the moment, jphip is the central place for basically most of fanfics in the 48fandom. If you are keen on enforcing the new rules, all authors who would like to write about the "underage" girls (of which there are plenty in the 48groups) will be forced to move their fics somewhere else. Seeing the popularity of Jurina+wMatsui and new rising girls such as Annin, this will probably affect a lot of fans and effectively scatter the fanbase. This is ultimately counterproductive for everyone who loves fanfics and for the whole fandom.
I'm happy our website has become a popular place to share and discuss fanfics. I truly am, and thank you all for that.
Secondly, these rules are not new. In fact, they are the first rules we have ever written. However, we did fail to gave the fanfic area sufficient attention due to its rapid increase in activity.
Of course it would be a shame to scatter the community and we don't want that. Nobody wants that. What I do not understand is the massive need to write about Jurina and the other young girls involving questionable situations like that. I know she is popular, but why always go for that angle? Counterproductive for the fandom? Maybe so, but I feel we do need to set a 'moral boundary' to avoid things getting out of hand.
