This is the first announcement I make without asking others for their opinions first. This is because the things I will state here, should be common knowledge and we should all follow these rules when using the internet.
As the amount of users, especially young users, has increased lately, I thought it would be important to remind everyone about the rules of using the internet. And these rules count everywhere on the internet, not just here!
So here they are:
Do never state your actual and real given name! Don’t use it for your fan series, just don’t post your name online. It is true, however, that some users use full names when working on their fan series’. But watch out, these names are pen names and not their real names!
Do not state your age online! This especially counts for underaged users! If you have reached adulthood, you should still not post it online. The internet is dangerous for kids that are younger than 18. So if you are under 18, never state your age online! Even if it is required to fill out an “Age Gab” don’t state it. Just fill it out with “I don’t state my age” or something like that.
Talk to other people the way you want them to talk to you! You want people to be nice to you? Then be nice to them. Accept their opinions and don’t start any unnecessary fights. Being nice and polite on the internet is just as important as in the offline world! Users of this wikia are also people too and have the same rights as you have.
Talking about being polite, don’t use bad words on the internet! Especially as there are many young people on the internet. Even if you don’t see a certain word as a swear word, don’t use it as people might react to it differently. There’s always a nice way to state your opinion!
(Related to the Fandom of Pretty Cure Wiki) Do not write about violent or adult content! Seriously, I’m not joking when saying that there are many children on the internet. And adult content is not suited for little kids! Then again, this is a child friendly website, so if you want to spread your ideas while they have not child friendly content, either make them child friendly or share them somewhere else!
Of course, there are also other things to be careful of, but none of them appeal to a fandom wiki. I, for one person, see those rules as obligatory when being online! So remember and follow them!
Ooh, I'm sorry FairySina, I'm just come back from school. Let me to do with some of my fan crossovers to make less realistic violent and some fanservice, but remain for teens and older readers. If you're saying is serious, I will do it with my fan series.
I don't want you to change your ideas. It's just that your series are the less problematic things here. But yes, a little less violence would be nice. This should be just reminder for the future. I also have a less-Cure-y fanseries. You can still add different things that are Cure unlikely
It's true, I remember that I created the story of the episode 4 for Gonzo Pretty Cure! where Cure Amaterasu is defeated in the first time while another girl become Cure Tsukiyomi, but the battle is a bit darker and a bit violent. It was a bit similar of TFSkPC21 of Sky Precure!.
So as long as it's more or less bloodless, right? Blood would equal small cuts that happen for the sake of drama and the like, nothing like giant stab wounds or gushing blood or anything (think when a character gets cut off by something cutting their cheek). There are some later parts that should be bloody messes in SSPC if I played it straight, but that's where creative censoring and those things happening off-screen comes in.
If you have to think about if it's too much, it's probably too much. Someone like me who does art has a far finer lines since you can just skimp on details while writing to make something less graphic in some cases, but that's harder to do in art and still convey what you want. So go watch some Precure and look at how violent they get so you know the upper limits. You honestly have more wiggle room than you think if you look at some of the plot episodes where characters outright die, and some of the fights get really sad and one-sidedly brutal.
So yes, you can have your characters get beaten up pretty badly (see Max Heart at times), but you have to keep pretty much all of the blood out of it. No one loses limbs (unless it's a monster or something), no one coughs up blood, and even stabbings leave no blood. Again, at most you can have some blood for a dramatic moment (see the Doki Doki precure movie), but more or less nowhere else.
How about something more like, say, the girls don't pay attention in a fight and someone gets hit on the head with some derbies? It doesn't kill them, but it does knock them out and scare the girls, making them have to think about fighting more carefully or risk things turning out worse next time. You could even put an amnesia arc here if you wanted. The second could be an explosion threat- the villain is storming a reactor or something, and the girls have to stop the monster before it destroys anything too important.
Note that in both of these cases, nothing terribly bad actually happens. Yes, there is a serious threat that it'll happen, but it never goes through. Worst-case for the first is an amnesia arc, and the second would be maybe parts of the town lose power for a bit because they had to take emergency actions.
But I think that the 2nd rule is a little...strict. I mean, people who have reached adult- or teenagehood state their age all the time, and they don't have a problem with it. I agree that underaged children shouldn't state their age online because the Internet can be a very dangerous place if you posted your personal information, and that there are predators there. So to let kids stay safe on their Internet, it is important that they should not state their real ages or post their personal info with their real faces.

The second rule is for underaged users. Like I stated "This especially counts for underaged users!" and "So if you are under 18, never state your age online!". It is totally fine if you are adult age (eversince 18 based on my nationality). Most of these rules are made for young people using the internet. And if you look up "things you shouldn't do on the internet", you will always find "don't share personal/private informations" - and your age is personal!
And I have a problem with Galactic Warriors Pretty Cure!. I was thinking about an episode where Ebi is forced to work at a café called Cutesy Kittenz by Yaya while she along with Patricia were fighting evil in outer space, but the restaurant actually turned out to be an evil brainwashing tool by an old crazy maniac called "Mr. Kitty", and the girls had to solve this problem but still defeat the evil aliens.
I don't know if this kind of plot would follow the rules because of how mature it is, but if I can I can tone it down to make it more "kid-friendly" and a little less serious.
