Raval Online is not designed for Children
We do try to edit/moderate with an eye toward shielding children from nude images and text that might upset them. Moderation happens after images and text have been posted to the live site, i.e., inappropriate material will be visible to all readers until an administrator/moderator notices and decides to remove it.
