Now that I've made my way through the Infinite Dick Parade that was the reports queue this morning:

You MUST use the sensitive-image overlay if you post an NSFW image to the public timelines.

You are not required to do so, but PLEASE tag the image in some other way to let people know what the content of the sensitive image is.

Also, PLEASE use a CW (just "NSFW" is fine) if you're going to use graphic terms to describe the image.

(Hashtags in the CW text don't work. Hashtags UNDER a CW do.)

@CM_noelle I don't have a dick to parade but the content warnings confuse me - I think those need to be simplified for the users to work with those effectively. Like a drop down selection with five most common type and "other" as an option not included

literally just write a warning of the content of your message right here, and.... Show more

@vesaliuss @CM_noelle yeah because different people in different communities have different needs

a flexible solution addresses all of these needs at once, whereas a rigid solution with pre-written selections would do fuck-all for a solid half of the use cases for CWs

mastodon (the fediverse, really) is not a single community, it is a community of communities

@killeveryhetero @CM_noelle I don't consider begging people to put CW and then instructing them to "somehow do it as I/me/we/extraterrestrials expect" a solution, the less a flexible one


@vesaliuss @CM_noelle CW's are a code feature. "Please use them like [this]" is a community rule, in this case, specific to (the community you are in and noëlle is a mod for).

I am not in your community - I am an admin. If I wanted my folks to use CW's differently, that's my prerogative - changing the actual code to enforce a singular way of thinking would prevent that.

Being snarky and rude to unpaid volunteers asking you to not shit in their lap doesn't exactly endear you to us.
