At the same time, we DO have reasons for acting in the way we do. THIS THREAD is the basis of our decisions. Its intentionally worded vaguely because the subject matter at hand is innately subjective. What constitutes "pop culture" cannot and will not be specifically defined for these purposes beyond what is written in the linked thread. Therefore, what constitutes "pop culture" is up to the admin in question.
Thank you for actually giving me a standpoint from which to argue.
Your Decision was based on this statement, if your reason for denial was true:
KISS is a rock band (you know, the four guys in the white and black face makeup) BUT they also have both a comic book series and a movie based on them having powers in their stage get-up. Therefore KISS is acceptable.
Comic book? Check
Movie based on them having powers in their stage get up? Check, check, and check.
Where is Kiss' video game?
Where are KISS' television appearances in costume, being the characters they created for the stage?
Where are KISS' new music and stage shows?
I submitted GWAR, as opposed to Dave Brockie, etc., because the band has it's own story and references that are only in reference to on stage characters. By your standards, they should be acceptable. There is nothing vague about exceeding what is written as a baseline requirement.
