    "View Anyways" Option for Mature Work

    I've always had the mispleasure of running into disgusting porn whether it be on FA or DA. FA especially. But every once in a while, I'll get a link from a friend who drew something mature related (violence/mature themes/ect). The thing is, in order for me to view this, I'll have to go into my settings, update my settings, go back to the submission link and refresh, then go back and update my settings. Sometimes, I'll forget to update my settings so when I browse the homepage, I'll get bapped in the face by a picture with 3D genitalia.



    So as a suggestion from someone over the age of 18 who isn't fond of adult/mature work but might need to view something mature (or heck, even adult rated) from time to time; would it be possible to include a "view anyways" button for our accounts?



    Thank you.

    Seconding this for the same reasons as listed! It would be wonderfully handy.

    if you don't mind, could you add this to our bug tracker? <https://redmine.weasyl.com/projects/weasyl>

    this is brand new and just starting to get filled with issues; it'll be much easier than using the forums.

    This isn't an issue as much as it is a suggestion. If I misunderstood you, can you please elaborate?

    Bug trackers aren't just for bugs; feature requests, suggestions etc are also done with them so that staff can assign and close items as needed, and duplicate requests can be merged. The name's kind of a misnomer. It's more like... A ticket tracker? Work orders? It's weird. Long story short it just makes all things development easier to manage.

    EDIT: But, uh, one thing you guys might want to add to the bug tracker is that the bug tracker is currently 502'ing.

    Wouldn't this create problems for underage users seeking mature artwork?

    otoh it does make it easier to see art without having to log in first, and I think FA might have recently set a new default requiring you to log in first.

    No? The "view anyway" button as suggested would obviously be only for those whose accounts are already listed as belonging to 18+ users. It's not a work-around for underage porn viewing; it's a convenience for those who can already view mature pieces, but typically avoid it for whatever reason.

    For example; I personally have no interest in viewing pornographic work, it's just not for me, so I have my settings listed to block very mature work. But if a friend were to link me a blocked image for, say, reference, I'd have to go through the settings and change them just to view that particular picture, then go back and change them again for my preferences. A "view anyway" button would save users like myself a great deal of hassle, especially when working with customers who have NSFW references.

    Users are required to give their DOB at registration. Implementing a measure like this could be done as follows:


    • if user is over 18
      • Ask if they want to view content
      • if user chooses yes
        • display content

      • else user chooses no
        • return to homepage

    • else user is under 18
      • display message indicating age restricted content.
