I'll sign up for Most Underwhelming Boss then.

Never done one of these presentations before so we'll see how this goes.

talked with smasher about it really quick and we think it's fine to go ahead and use them uncensored, but it's potentially a problem with bypassing censors people have set on the forum so if it's decided later to do so it shouldn't be much of a hassle for you I assume?

Fun fact you can use for this:
Forum censor also censors URL's, so if you have a comic named Comic-dang.png, censor will change that into Comic-darn.png. Having files for both would censor things for those that have enabled it.

ok but not everyone has their own site to host images and create URLs that can easily be swapped like that

I am aware of that, but there are image hosting sites that allow such things.

Too much trouble: it wouldn't be fair to ask presenters to go to that length to accommodate people who can't handle a few harmless words here and there. As long as the presentations aren't like, hate speech filled with slurs, or droppin' f-bombs everywhere for no reason, or whatever, and are instead kept in good taste even with a bit of extra flavour where it seems appropriate, imho that should be fine. Kids'll hear worse as soon as they venture onto any sort of public transit, watch TV after 9:00 PM or have an unruly teen sibling anyway.

(Keep in mind that I'm NOT on the Awards Committee and these are just my thoughts and suppositions and whatnot, and NOT official rulings at all.)

Personally, I'm completely fine with the occasional cuss word as long as it doesn't go overboard, and of course, it not being hate speech or racial slurs like Walkazo mentioned. Hell, I dropped an F-bomb in my last presentation.

Still need 4 awards filled in:  A5, A7, S8, and S10.  Not every back-up presenter contacted me back or taken one so that would be nice, otherwise the spots are open to everyone.
