I had this idea in this thread.

A web site suggestion:
Have a check box by the forum post text box that allows a user to mark his/her post as adult content that can be filtered by viewers.

I think a lot of users that post nudes would check such a box allowing casual thread browsers to filter such content.

Also, SC could then mark individual posts as adult, if it is reported.

Edit to add:
I want to make it clear that I am talking about flagging individual posts within a thread. That way a whole thread doesn't get filtered if someone posts a nude in the middle of a conversation.

I think it is fair and doesn't leave people out, if they choose not to read adult content or view nude photos.

I suggested exactly that on page one of the "desperate outcry" thread, so I'd like to add my vote to this.

It would help keep everyone happy. Make sure the preferences by default are on "adult content is hidden" and need to be opted IN.

Perhaps something could even be automated to save work for SC: if more than X number of people report a post as adult, it is marked as such automatically.

Edited for typo, as usual.

Thanks fotomann...

I was the OP of the other thread and for me, the primary concern with adult content are the images. In the example I pointed out initially, that post contained numerous image thumbnails, only one was a nude. If you were to mark the post as "adult content" all the other content would also be hidden.

Then you may also have people checking the box to hide content just for the heck of it so some weren't able to view it at all.

Really, I think this issue for me is simply the posted images. If the forum rule was followed as written it would be taken care of.

A negative point (albeit minor) is your suggestion will require additional coding by Langdon to put it in place.

I personally like the idea of folks being able to self-flag their posts for adult content. Viewers then would be able to choose whether to view it.
If the poster felt that the entire post should be flagged, they could do so. If they felt that one thumbnail out of several was problematic, they could just put that one in as a link. Choices are good.
it woudl require coding, and I'm not sure if it would be minor or major. It's a very constructive idea, however.

Kirbic, thank you so much for acknowledging that someone from SC actually saw and read this. I assume that also means you will bring it up for discussion?

I like that idea too... would definitely help out SC in monitoring the forums.

Assuming DPC is MySQL based, it should only require one field added to each forum post. A boolean field marked true or false for adult content.

forum.php would only need a bit of code to filter the content as follows (not correct PHP syntax):

If Adult_content == true
___If Filter == on
_____Post = false;
___Else
_____Post = true;
Else
_____Post = true;

It's not quite that easy in practice, but not difficult logically. Note: I do not know how DPC's backend is coded.

I'll tell you a much better solution. Which doesn't involve coding.

Make people aware that when they enter the DPC site they might encounter nude images, or adult conversation. And that DPC (while doing their best to limit this) can take no responsibility for any offence caused.

This really doesn't work because there are children/young adults who are photographers on here.

No, no, no...adult conversation is bad and the offended ones only want photography based conversation. And they ARE the large vocal majority.

Which reminds me of when the Da Vinci Code was about to come to the cinema's here in Thailand, a large vocal group of christians lobbied the censors and asked for the last 20 mins of the film to be cut out as they found it offensive. So they censors agreed -as these were a large vocal group.
When it was reported in the paper there was uproar. Turned out there was a larger vocal group - everyone else - and the censors backed down.

ETA -Leroy's suggestion is simple and effective.

No, neither is quite right.

DPC does not claim responsibility and anyone who has used dpc knows that occassionally it will be "adult." It's not simply offense that is the problem. For that matter, view few reports come to us because someone is simply offended.

And as for "the large vocal majority," very few (if any) said they wanted to limit discussion to just photography. They just didn't want the sexual jokes, innuendos, etc taking over and hijacking other threads.

BUT, I do like the idea of marking a post as adult or not, so that people are warned and can take appropriate action.

Quite a few did say they wanted only photography based threads in the 'What's going on?' thread.

09/01/2006 11:55:03 PM · #18
Now this does sound like a good idea to me. That way no matter what we say, no one can complain. If you don't like hearing people talking about booty slapping or a swear word here and there, you can turn your adult filter off.
09/01/2006 11:56:53 PM · #19
actually, on another message board I belonged to, they set up a special forum...like say we made a forum here -- only registered users who checked a special box could have access to it.

In that forum, there should be just about no moderation at all. Obviously if someone threatens someone bodily harm, that's another story.

I'm all for it!

edit: not registered users, I meant paying members.

But, most people recognize this is a varied community and understand that non-photography talk is okay. It's when the non-photog stuff started infiltrating the photog stuff and things were hi-jacked, inadvertantly, that the complaints came to the SC.

I want to make it clear that I am talking about flagging individual posts within a thread. That way a whole thread doesn't get filtered if someone posts a nude in the middle of a conversation.

I think it is fair and doesn't leave people out, if they choose not to read adult content or view nude photos.

What's Going On?

Perhaps you could point out the "quite a few" posts that said that? I just re-read it, and the ones I saw specifically said that no one wanted to ban all non-photography threads....

And, I agree.
