You can get rid of my stupid fucking avatar image. I asked Xhin to get rid of it before the transfer, but I guess he didn't get around to it.

Slipped my mind during the transfer process. Fixed.

Please remember the mature tag when swearing, thank you.

Where is this rule expressed? Rule IIIA only says:

Swears in Thread Titles and/or Usernames

To keep this site's appearance clean, the administrative team is forbidding any swear words from appearing in thread titles and/or usernames.

Additionally, inflammatory usernames are not allowed on GT For All. These include names that include derogatory or hateful language.

Infrequent violations will be enforced with a suggestion that you modify the thread title/username. Repeat offenses will result in a ban.

Good catch!

I have it scattered out in the Illegal Activities section and Erotic Content sections.

It should also be used for swears, but I forgot that.

I might make it its own section of the rules since it's new.

My apologies.

At any rate, that was not an official warning.

And I unmarked it as adult since I made a mistake on the rules set forth. My apologies.

Wait, so there's going to be some sort of tag whenever someone swears in a post?

Yes, the updated mark XIII in rules cover it.

It's just a marker for any swear worse than 'damn', as well as sexually explicit content.

You can turn the hide-by-default off in Settings if you're using an Account.

It's just a method of keeping the site cleaner, while still recognizing we're adults and swearing shouldn't be expressly forbidden from cussing here.

I also don't like it being there for swears. I swear so much that I'm inevitably going to forget. It's gonna be hard enough remembering to mature tag it for other stuff.

We probably shouldn't be catering to kids anyway imo. It should be a 18+ site imo but not with lewd stuff just anywhere either.

So you spoilered my post for a rule that didn't exist, then unspoilered it because you realized that you made a mistake, then created the relevant rule, and my post is still unspoilered? WHAT the FUCK are you DOING?


NORMALLY with moderating, you can't retroactively punish a user for a rule that wasn't in place.

In this case, the content probably should've just been left flagged because the rule was vague.

I'll take care of this. Denida and I will get on the same page, like I said.

Sorry for this. Acclimating to a new feature is a challenge.

If a person is clicking "show content", they don't know if it going to be someone saying "fuck" or someone talking at excessive length about anal prolapse. One of these things is not like the other.


I'm game for adding an optional reason to specify what makes it a mature thread, if that'd fix this issue.

Here's one for free: either create multiple possible tags (one for abstract or low-grade mature content like saying "fuck", one for explicit or excessive content like porn or talking about what you dug out of your skin folds this morning) or create a method for expressing what kind of content is being hidden (e.g. drop-down menu for someone to select language, sexual content, etc., or possible a text field where the user can write a few words about the type of content).


Good suggestion!! I like it.

I can work on developing this, for sure.

The rule was supposed to be there. It was a misunderstanding that is corrected. I can't do anything but apologize for my mistake and try to correct it since the rule didn't stand at the time.

@Denida - rule change per above? What do you think?

We're getting significant backlash over this and I'm kind of iffy on it as is.

I do not think it should be changed for the backlash, however I am open to the idea of not using it for swears for a test run to see if everyone can handle using it, where it doesn't turn into swearing in every single post. So we can try without using it for swears for another month and take a reevaluation, maybe?

But sexual, drug-related, and graphic content should still require the tag for the time being.

Lol - can you check out my revised thread on the mature content flag and drop your opinions there, please?

Better now?
