    I know tag discussions are off-topic but I really wanted to throw in the idea of making the gallery require a minimum amount of tags for display? As a way to encourage tagging.

    As a totally incidental note, having separate systems for rating Violence and Sexual Content would be pretty neat. Inkbunny does actually have this as a feature, and it works quite well.

    Inkbunny achieves this by allowing you to select separate Violence and Sexual Content ratings.

    Just some suggestions, ignore anything already covered or irrelevant. I didn't have time to read everything.

    -Non registered users are restricted to general content. No exceptions. Regardless of legality. Think of the children lol? ("That's ageist" is a non-argument, and I shouldn't have to go into specifics on this)

    -IF a user has incorrectly rated their content. Set future submissions uploaded by them to a higher rating by default. If their content is appropriate for a lower rating, they can manually reset it (each time) before/after submitting. (It's quite obvious that furries are extremely laxed when it comes to certain content)

    -Tags/Images recommended for you, based on user browsing and settings.
    Another way to encourage people to tag their content and attract a following

    -Rename Mature to "Moderate" (keep it 18+ of course). To make more distinction from Explicit, i.e this is not where you put your porn. (General, Moderate, Explicit, or... General, Moderate, Mature; with Explicit becoming Mature as well).

    -Nudity, exposed breasts/chests, defined/nonsexual genitalia should remain in the "new Moderate" (18+ or Mature) rating. This way artistic or anatomical nudity doesn't get lumped in with pornography.

    -Erections, signs of arousal, camel toes, focusing/centering on bulges, touching or pointing to genitalia/whatever, bodily excretions/fluids, lactation, exposed rears/orifices, etc should be Explicit.

    As it already is I believe?

    Cartoon or minor violence, drunkenness, weapons, etc can fall under general. Any mild violence, blood/combat, drugs/usage, etc can go in the new "moderate" (18+ or Mature) rating. Gore and violent acts (including sexual kinds) of course belong in Explicit. Little note, there's going to be people lying about their age upon registering, so there's that too (good/bad).

    Overall, I believe that the content ratings here are very just and defined perfectly. There's literally no missing context or loophole on the ratings and their descriptions. If somebody has an issue with it, they need to read them again until they get it because it's just so simplified and well worded. They aren't difficult to understand at all and provide a superb balance of what can be put where so how can you go wrong with it? In fact, I don't think they should be changed at all from what they are right now.

    I love how there's an option to toggle what you want to see for your personal preferences. It's not just SFW ON OR SFW OFF. It's perfect for those that don't mind seeing naked defined body parts but have an issue with sexual content itself with copious amounts of bodily fluid. Or maybe you just want to see a little less, or maybe you just want to see the Full Monty and only that.

    Maybe you just like seeing really hot characters but don't want to go so far as to see their junk or literally 20 gallons of you know what all over their face...which is perfect for the Moderate 13+ rating. You can get your Victoria Secret-esque cameltoe going on and eat your cake too without feeling overly disgusted if that's the only rating that you want to go to.

    But a lot of people just don't tag correctly and in my opinion that is one of this site's downfalls.

    That being said, I think if we instituted these "more descriptive ratings" as just checkboxes that say if it's fetish/etc., it would just be a better UI. Checking the box would simply add a tag to your work.
    This falls in line with the 'suggested tags' and possible 'mandatory tags' that came up in the tagging discussion a while back. We need more uniform tags so the features dependent on tags (such as blacklist) are much easier to use and more dependable.
    Also to FeyPhoenix.
    It does sound sensible to me to have some standardized tags, and to have said tags available in a drop-down menu when submitting artwork. I don't want to talk too much about tags in this thread, however (not that it isn't worth discussing more).


    And just a heads-up: I started a document to collect summarized versions of everyone's ideas so far. So as people keep posting, I will keep adding to the document. We should be able to use it as a guide for staff discussions.

    Well, it looks like discussion has more or less stopped, and we're at the 18th, so this thread will now be closed and we'll get to working on revising the guidelines based on everyone's feedback.

    Thanks so much to all who participated! We'll try not to take too long to get these changes made and implemented, but be aware that these may likely be fairly substantial and hence may take quite a while to hash out. We'll keep everyone posted.

    Thanks again!
