That flagging thing..  
You know this morning when I first checked, I only had one complaint. At work, where I am right now, I have to be very particular at what I view online.

That means explicit materials and youtube vids are totally off limits.

The only thing that helps me is reading the cut tags, or a describtion. You are about to view content that may only be appropriate for adults. Does not do that at all, because some of the content behind that had nothing mature or explicit about it and it largely means that to not get in trouble I will need to avoid any post labeled as such.

ETA: Via cerri and frogspace: How to avoid that adult content warning.

But the thing is, what if I have an innocent post with pic spam... and in comments we start making comments about the hotness of some ass and then it gets more explicit... Does it then need to be flagged?

I mean, I am pretty sure there are underage people on my flist but I don'T think anyone needs to be censored, I want to have fun here!!!!

And the major thing is, as I started reading fanfic, I was still underage and really, I did not care about the labels and the warnings and the, click only if you are over 18 tags. I pressed those buttons anyways. So how hard is it for a teen to just klick that button and do just that?


Also a To-Do list:

  • Reviews fo Chikinki and Dominic Miller

  • Sunday Cookies picspam

  • Chikinki for cerri (2x)

  • SGA Art Santa

  • Send various Photos to people

  • the December dinner mail

  • Book flight and hotel for Peg 3

  • Find weird community names

  • The GateCamp Shirt

I think flagging is a good idea - in theory. We know it's to protect LJ's communal ass, but if something is there to protect my head from falling on LJ's chopping block - well I'm for it.

Besides, I cringe at the idea of under 14s reading my journal...

I just think it would be way cooler to have everyone who has an account give the age and the automatically not be able to view content labeled a certain way.

This is true.

Someone just highlighted another problem to me which made me turn it off as well. It disables your ability to specify your own cuts.

Most of my stuff is posted under f-lock anyways and I know most of my f-list are over 16.

Which was th problem I had, my major issue so to speak... 70% of the cuts in my lj were called "You are about to view content that may only be appropriate for adults." And that does not say anything at all. But the tutorial I linked to above takes care of that.

And I do have some younger people on flist. I dunno. I did label my entire lj adult now..but not explicit.

i think the flagging thing is good, if it keeps lj from another strikethrough thingy... but as you said, if you wanna read sth. you will click anyways... well, at least they are doing something...

heh, the reviews are twice on your list *pets*

btw - the dinnermail would really be appreciated, as from what subtle said it's next week? and I'm not sure how far advanced peoples plans are

did you order the cds? that's what i really wanted to ask ^^

btw take your time with the upload and other things... if you've got so much to do... i'll live;)

copied from above ;)

and yes.. accidental ;)


and I will write that mail today. And order Chikinki today :) When I get home. Will have a nice and quiet evening, I hope :) I wanted to do it yesterday, but I'm still thinking about ordering somehing else... maybe ;) you know... while I'm at it. That's what the Chinkinki cerri 2x means... that there are 2 things to do with Chikinki in regard to you!!

Btw... the dinner date is the 9th! Just keep the day free.... I just need to ask subtle something beforehand.

and I WANT to do it for you ;)
[identity profile] realproof.livejournal.com on November 30th, 2007 12:36 pm (UTC)
well, I guess more people will be giving their age now...

*huggelz*

okay... just wanted to make sure...

I know, that's what subtle said, when she picked up her sandman-books... as I said: next week.

that's sweet... but seriously... take your time...
[identity profile] elli.livejournal.com on November 30th, 2007 12:49 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I had to give me age now ;)

[identity profile] realproof.livejournal.com on November 30th, 2007 01:18 pm (UTC)
and i'm fine... should probably practice my french more... though i was better than expected when did some vocabulary testing lest wednesday... but don't ever ask me to actually talk in complete sentences... it might also help to work on "looking like i'm paying attention" cause even if i do, i think i look bored and like my head is somewhere else entirely... and that means my teacher will always call on me to answer the question... which is more annoying than anything else...

C(*won't look up the stupid accent*)a va bien. Je m'appelle Cerri.

I'm seriously wondering if I had this many problems when I first started learning English. I honestly can't remember, it was such a long time ago. And it is harder to learn when you're "older".

maybe you could make "hoodies" ^^
[identity profile] elli.livejournal.com on November 30th, 2007 01:22 pm (UTC)
The hoodie of porn ;)

But the idea works less well because of the seam.
[identity profile] realproof.livejournal.com on November 30th, 2007 01:26 pm (UTC)
oooookay

aren't there hoodies that don't have a seam in the middle? ah well... i think it'd be a little too much anyways... but i'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with:)
[identity profile] elli.livejournal.com on November 30th, 2007 01:47 pm (UTC)
Well.... we didn't find any yesterday.... besides... I want it to be a T-Shirt!!! *g*
[identity profile] stabbim.livejournal.com on November 30th, 2007 02:08 pm (UTC)
I want one, too!

Couldn't we have one shirt with Shep's hair and the towers?

Imagine the towers rising upwards out of Shep's hair !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
