(heh, insensitivity, i can't say it on the boards!)
I think good taste is ultimately the barometer of what is and is not allowed for FPL characters. Just don't have a character who's M.O is stomping on baby heads and you should be fine (or if that IS his M.O write it very well and people will usually allow it to slide =D )

Given the average age of an FPL-er I'd say you're allowed to go for a soft rated R if you'll allow me to use the movie rating equivalent of age appropriateness. Landon makes liberal use of the F word and Penelope is implied that she was a *insensitivity* victim.
Well the character I already have in Character analysis is implied to be a... insensitivity-ist. I guessed as long as it wasn't spelled out it would be fine.
The next character I'm writing up isn't an outright monster in that sense. Essentially, he's a man driven mad by the fact he's attracted to children. He'd never do anything to children, he knows it's wrong and he knows he should seek help. But he's so paranoid that someone is going to find out about his problem that, rather than visit a psychiatrist, he's going out to fight villains, as a way to prove to himself that he's a decent person, and also as a kind of masochistic punishment for his problem.
I was worried that it was a bit too edgy.
EDIT: Essentially, the theme will be edgy and adult as opposed to what actually happens.
EDIT (Again): Seems I should have looked around more, serge has stated his official opinion on such things here. So it should be alright.

Just don't have a character who's M.O is stomping on baby heads...
Wasn't that a Rhekarid character at some point?
On a more serious note, perhaps its time to start filling out the FAQ. Since I'm not nearly as comfortable with explaining the system as most of the admins; I'll leave it up to them to change anything I submit. Also, additional clarity is more than welcome and appreciated. Of course, if I say something completely wrong: Please don't hesitate to let me know.
So in the spirit of procrastination...

It is frowned upon.
I've noticed that what people often right under personality boxes or powers boxes actually doesn't have much of anything to do with their personality or powers, but is actually just a continuation of the story or random story point. Is it frowned upon to simply describe someone personality or powers in the actual boxes labeled as such?
The personality section? It does show the personality - it's usually a case of the character doing something that shows their personality. Powers? Similar - they use their powers in the section, rather than just have them described. Show, not tell. Give us the personality and powers in action, don't just describe them.
For instance, if the character is angry a lot, the personality section will be a part of the story in which the character gets angry. If they have the power of fire, then that part of the story will show the character burning something.

What goes where is, as I understand it, given to artistic liscence.

If I want to use say Hydrokinesis as a power in the FPL, should I choose Telekinesis and just name it Hyrdokinesis?
You could, that would work fine. If the character becomes water you could also use energy body. There used to be a power called energy manipulation that defined exactly what you are talking about, but as its gone now Telekinesis is a close enough heading

TK is fine, if you want to refine it a bit you can use Ranged, Area Effect, Multi-Attack, etc to make it work for you.
Also, as to your signature, I can't figure out what your beef is with Judd Winick specifically. Care to elaborate?
