    "SFW" Button?

    Its one of the few features I'd like to see implemented on Weasyl from FA. I'm in an office 12 hours a day and I certainly don't want furry dick all over the home page when I visit to check my messages.

    You could make it a per-browser setting so you don't have an ugly button on the toolbar, using HTML5 local storage elements so its always enabled in one browser, such as a work machine, and disabled on a home machine without needing to toggle anything constantly.

    Has this been suggested yet?

    Personally, I think a SFW button would be redundant as you can already filter art through your account settings.
    The only viable reason I could see in a SFW button would be comfort as you would not have to walk through the setting everytime just to change the filter, but considering one would find himself in a professional environment, I do not think repetitive actions such as this would be needed.

    I'll have to be the one who asks why you'd be checking Weasyl at work, unless you mean checking it on the phone during break or something. In that case, the SFW solution is to wait for privacy.

    I could possibly see a benefit for when you check the site in a public place and don't want to offend the sensibilities of those around you, though.

    And now I'm going to ponder the wisdom of visiting a site that I wouldn't want known about for various reasons. Hmm.

    If the SFW button disables M/A submissions on the front page and submission notification list, but still allows users to view M/A submissions (via direct links), I can see it being useful for artists that don't want to see all the porn but still need access to ref sheets that may contain mature material.

    I agree with Eduard; if there's already an option for filtering NSFW art, why do we need another one?

    I wanna say some people who enjoy the dirty stuff may also have general work/journals they wanna check. While on the job, having SFW on is a quick and easy way to make sure that nothing you like m/a wise pops up on screen while browsing messages or general srt of the sorts.


    that's just my $.02

    But how would mature/adult content pop up from your screen if you disable them from popping up from your user settings?

    the user setting can be a bit inconvenient to navigate through. If you want you could also view it as a "nsfw" button, as implied by socks as something you press if you want your content normally at a lower rating but need to sometimes view adult material as well.

    Either way I don't think it's a bad idea, and it's something I used myself when I was on FA.

    Welp, a SFW button is so much more handy than going through the settings, two times a day :I
    It also make it so you still get nsfw submissions in your inbox from people you follow.
    Whereas changing the settings back and forth would make you lose out on updates, you'd want once you got home.

    I am really sad to see the "Well if I don't need it, it must be useless" attitude, especially as it's a feature people have been very happy to get on other sites. It's not really something I use myself but I can see how it would be helpful to others, also Socks the Fox brings up a valid point (for me at least.) Being able to see people's refs without changing settings back and forth would be neat.

    A SFW button would make toggling the setting a lot easier, and quicker.
    Back on FA, I always toggled through SFW and NSFW constantly.
    I didn't like the adult content, but I did like other themes of work that were Mature.
    However, there were times when I would have forgotten to change settings
    and had to quickly click the SFW button before eyes could venture to see any NSFW content.

    Socks the Fox has a REALLY awesome idea, too.
    There were so many times I rolled my eyes to have to change my settings
    just to view a ref sheet for a commission I needed to do.
