I'm hope I'm in the right place. Anyway, sorry if this is a dumb question but I was just wondering, if I were to write a satirical review of a board game, would the Fextralife blog be an appropriate place to post it or no? And if so, should I submit it as just a normal article or as an actual review of the game, or doesn't it matter? Also, what would be the limits on profanity? Thanks.

I don't see why not. I too am planning a satirical article, so I hope so.

@Fexelea Are there any caveats for satire writing?
Normality is a banality. Reality is a fallacy. Alter your perception, open your mind, and expand your world...with odd thoughts, eccentric beliefs, and an eldritch imagination.

I've done plenty of satire.

Swearing is a little more acceptable on the blog than forum. Don't go crazy though.

Be careful not to cross from satire to libel.

Okay. Thanks. One more question, what if it's also very political?

depends on the nature of the satire. If it's anything like that woman who photoshopped Trump's decapitated head in her hands, I'm going to bet no.

It'll have to be reviewed before publishing so you'll know after you write it.

For general advice, you'll note that there's often a disclaimer about ”these views are the author's” deal. Take a look at what we've already published and you might get a sense of tone that's allowable. Political will be a bit more touchy though
