    Content Rating doesn't apply to Thumbnails

    I have to apologize if this is already covered in another thread, or has been posted.


    Basically I have my Maximum Viewable Content Rating set to Mature 18+, which covers everything up to explicit. This works, but unfortunately does not apply to thumbnails.

    The issue with this is I personally chose not to see porn in my submissions dashboard, and yet I still see it partially. Artists are uploading and choosing explicit parts as their thumbnail, so I still see genitalia, bodily fluids, etc. This would not be a problem if the Mature 18+ filtered out thumbnails along with the full images.

    It's up to the artist to choose what part of their image shows up in a thumbnail, and I don't think it's fair to ask them to choose any part but the one they want, so! If Weasyl could implement a system where the Content Rating will hide thumbnails in accordance to a users choice, that would be great!

    So wait. You have the mature content filter on or off?

    Because if you have the mature filter on it should filter out all of that if I'm not mistaken.

    I have the mature filter turned on, as in I can see everything from general up to mature 18+, but I should not be able to see Explicit 18+

    The filter works perfectly fine if you try to click on an explicit image, it says you're not allowed to view it. Though an artist I watch, recently did a huge upload of explicit images and it showed up in my dashboard.

    I just investigated further now, the filter gets rid of thumbnails when you browse Weasyl or someones gallery, but for some reason when an artist you watch uploads these works they are not filtered out of your dashboard.

    - Maybe it's a bug for me? I'm not sure now.

    I will post a screenshot of my settings and dashboard if another artist I watch uploads explicit work.

    I didn't check back to see that edit. I hit advanced reply, went away and came back D:

    Sorry! I think I know what you mean, and I'll report back my findings if it happens to me first.

    this may or may not be in our bug tracker already; we have a ticket open because right now collection notifications don't respect the maximum content rating.

    Hey Weykent,
    since more people moving to Weasyl, I was able to get another pop up in my inbox and it is indeed a collection notification.
    Thanks for the response.
