    How about a way to filter -out- G / PG results?

    Howdy!

    So, that option to turn on adult art site wide? I want something just like that, but for non-adult art. I'd like to eliminate G/PG rated pictures from my browsing experience to ensure I don't end up looking at pictures of someone's fursuit, pets, friends, etc.

    That's not a site option and while I'd be thrilled with a 'minimum viewable content rating' section I realize it's not likely to be added. So, I'm wondering whether someone can tell me how to do this with tag filtering. Is there a way to access meta-information about the submission itself through tag filtering, or a universal 'SFW' tag I can filter out? I'd rather avoid doing this by keyword - there are so many variations on 'suit', 'suiter', 'suiting' etc that I'd need regular expressions to make it work.

    I.e. you want a "Just show me the porn already"-button. Fair enough point, most other sites let you filter by rating, and Weasyl already does this for advanced search results.

    For such "single handed browsing" functionality, the advanced search would probably be most suitable. Just bookmark that page instead of the homepage

    It's an "advanced" option on most other sites too and works in almost the same way.

    Oh, I just realized that the search doesn't actually allow you to simply browse the filtered results. You need to enter at least one keyword with the rating filters. That does kinda defeat the point of that route, so I can see how a sitewide option or at least a browse option could be useful.

    Why not just use e261 if all you want to do is browse porn?

    I feel like that's counter-intuitive advice to give for a site doing its best to attract people and grow a diverse community. e621 is great, but why can't our site be used for the same purposes for someone who's more comfortable here? e621 also has a bit of a disconnect between artist and art, which might matter to some people.

    I'm just saying there are better options if all the OP wants is the porn that's not really counter-intuitive, it's a pretty basic suggestion. I can't think of any art site that specifically has a feature that filters out specific ratings aside from the obvious SFW filters.

    Alternatively, you can just search tags and then filter out everything under Explicit.

    I guess I see it as, if a customer came into my shop wanting to buy specifically from me, but I didn't have exactly what they wanted although I could probably accommodate their request, why would I tell him to go somewhere else? It's a bit of a competitive view, but yeah. I don't disagree with your suggestion, just that's my logic behind it.

    This. e621 is mostly, if I'm not mistaken, about various people posting various drawings, erotic or not, furry or not, they often aren't the owners of. It's just listings of pics with anon comments.
    I posted my drawings a few times on it but never felt the drive to become more involved because it all felt so disconnected, as you put it.

    Hmm... How would replacing the drop down that lets you choose what you'd like to see with a list of checkboxes? Then people can choose exactly what they want to see?

    That way people who don't want G rated stuff displayed can skip it and any other variation is fine too.
    Plus it'd be less obtrusive than a big red "PORN" button
