Hey Deb, done any thinking on this?

MediaGoblin asks everyone to help us by categorizing their own content. We hope that all sorts of people will benefit from sharing media here, but not all content is acceptable for all audiences. Please take a minute to think about who might benefit from your content and who might not. Thanks for making MediaGoblin a great resource for everybody! Content Filters - Everybody (E) - Content that would be acceptable on a public billboard - Not Quite Everybody (NQE) - Most of your friends wouldn't mind, but you'd think twice about putting this up in an elementary school - Not Safe For Work (NSFW) - Would you show this to your new boss? Right, then set it as NSFW. Does a bathing suit usually cover it? Then it's NSFW. If you'd rather not describe what's happening in the picture to a room full of 8 year olds, then set it to NQE.

I really like the bathing suit line. I think that's a good differentiator.

I think that we should use a culture-agnostic rating system. Perhaps in the west we have a certain common understanding of what's mature and what isn't. SOme countries/cultures may have stricter/looser understandings of what's mature and what isn't. This makes us unable to predict at what age it'll be OK for someone to view an image. We should instead rate the images based on the content of the images. Some suggeestions are (these are **really** up for discussion, and some research of which ones are necessary may need to be done). - Alcoholic beverages - Tobacco - Drugs - Partial nudity - Full nudity - Gore And perhaps even categories representing "depictions of \_\_\_\_", for comics or art depicting any of these etc.

As discussed on IRC, I think the proposal Deb has made is actually very good. I think this stuff is going to be highly subjective anyway, and we don't want it to be tiring. (It's already kinda tiring by default..) The **main** goal here is to prevent porn and very violent things from hitting people who don't want to see them.

I think this should be a plugin, now that we have plugin support.

I noticed today that cwebber accidentally displayed joar's posting of some ASCII art that had a few of George-Carlin-7-dirty-words in it. This URL was the one (possibly NSFW, but it more or less isn't, if you don't mind George-Carlin-seven-words): http://gobblin.se/u/joar/m/table/
Perhaps thus the NSFW/NQE/E might not be enough. I think what cwebber needed was "PRESENTATION-MODE", which I guess is close to NQE but not quite that far, I think. I guess mainly what's needed is the ability to configure the levels rather than hard coding them.

Rather than levels, you could implement tags and allow people to filter them out. You could even "bundle" some common tags together and present them more prominently (like NSFW). Specifically this makes me think of "Trigger Warnings" and how a robust tagging system would help there.
comment:14 by , 10 years ago
We do have tags... I hadn't thought of filtering based on them.

I think nobody is actively working on this so I'm removing ownership.

I've attached a couple of mockups for how this could look at an interface level.
Perhaps the way filtering could work is that the first time you navigate to content that has a safety level other than the default, it would instead show a warning page:
For your safety, this item has been marked "not safe for work" and hidden by default. Would you like to enable "not safe for work" content during this browsing session?

Disowning this ticket for now, as I'm not actively working on it.
