Hi admins,

I posted this in the General Discussion bit but wasn't sure if you'd pick it up there.

My submissions are as follows:

Horus D 2009-06-08 03:45:46 2009-06-13 13:59:31 No non-fictonalized religious figures.
Isis D 2009-06-08 03:44:29 2009-06-13 13:59:12 No non-fictonalized religious figures.
Anubis D 2009-06-08 03:43:06 2009-06-13 14:00:18 No non-fictonalized religious figures.
Seth D 2009-06-08 03:41:27 2009-06-13 13:58:32 No non-fictonalized religious figures.
Osiris D 2009-06-08 03:39:40 2009-06-13 13:58:11 No non-fictonalized religious figures.
Amon-Re D 2009-06-08 03:37:55 2009-06-13 13:59:55 No non-fictonalized religious figures.

Any chance that this "no non-fictionalized religious figures" could be reversed? We have Zeus and plenty of other mythological characters + I'm sure that these guys have been used in fiction many times (also any chance I don't have to resubmit all the characters again?)

Thanks for you help and good work guys. Am loving this new CBUB!!!!!!

I didn't deny them, but I would have too.

If you actually *show* them being used in fiction, like say ares from marvel or hercules, rather than *assume* they're fictionalized somewhere will improve your chances.

And to everyone, pop culture does not mean "anything I want that isn't in a comic cartoon TV show or movie."

I did deny them. Would again. It's one of the quite few rules for submission. I would've denied several FICTIONALIZED religious figures (Godyessy Jesus).

I think there should be a distinction between religious figures and mythological figures. I can get on board with the religious problem, as understandably it could cause unnecessary friction... But mythological beings? Thor, osiris, zeus? Not the same in my eyes as they are beings that are not worshipped, can be used in fights in an interesting fashion and have identifiable feats to their names.

That being said, i'm not going to argue. There are plenty of characters to enjoy and you guys do a good job processing a lot of submissions.
Keep up the good work and yay to the new and improved CBUB!
