Possible Rule Change Regarding Recolors

A Poll for Sonic Adventure DX (2004)

(relevant rules in full will be posted at the bottom, but please read Site Rules and Skin Rules in full)

I have been back-and-forth on how I want to handle recolors on this page. Currently, the way that I've been trying to moderate is by following the Personalization rule. Ultimately, this means that if a Skin is made to represent a fan-character without much following, i.e. for a single person, it would be in violation of Personalization.

However, recolors take relatively little effort on the part of the mod developer. Other sections have put rules in place to ban recolors, such as Sonic Mania and Sonic Boll. In order to better highlight our higher-effort mods, I am considering adding this to our Community Rules as well.

I recognize that this type of mod is a great starting point for new modders, and I don't want to discourage anyone from joining our community. I realize this new rule would not be directly in line with the Quality Control rule, but as a Community Rule I feel this would help encourage people to learn more about the game and make more exciting mods.

Below are the relevant rules, in their original wording. Thanks - Ham★

Site Rules

1.8 Quality Control

No deliberately low quality or low effort submissions. We always want to be a place where beginners can submit their content and learn, however if a submission is considered to have been made deliberately of poor quality on purpose, to troll, point farm etc, it may be removed.

Skins Rules

1.6 Personalization

Personalization is not allowed in skin submissions. Personalized skins are for a specific person or small group and aren't ideal for community use. This includes names of any kind; people, clans, groups. etc.

Sonic Mania

No character recolor mods. Exceptions can be made if the mod changes a significant amount of other things outside character sprites.

Sonic Boll

Recolors and insignificant edits are generally not allowed here, due to the low effort required to make them.
An exception to the previous rule can be made if the edit is based off an official game.

    Only concern is about whether or not my previous stuff would count towards this. AKA the Amy outfit PVM I previously made and maybe the "Amy is a fox" thing.

    I didn't understand the Personalization rule.
    We'll not be able to make other characters mods like Blaze and Silver ones?
