i dont think anyone is arguing against CWs, but just suggesting that the way they are implemented now could be improved
@dankwraith let's add another textfield so we can be #tumblr2 #insanelylonghashtagsthatarethemajorityofthepostandaretotallyunreadable
@dankwraith this sounds surprisingly functional.
@dankwraith YES like there's already the capability to completely drop posts like that
@dankwraith This would be great. I wonder about the possibilities of making it possible for other people to tag your toots as well, though, so that way if Person A isn't so great at filling out the "Content" portion, others in the community can pick up that slack.
@dankwraith requiring that kind of decision to be made in advance rather than on the fly is kind of onerous for users with minimal needs, and for those with more specialized needs, there is already content-based filtering. I think probably a better way to go about it would be to add a setting to the existing filtering options to automatically put a content warning around posts matching some filters
@dankwraith I like the idea of being able to add tags or cw's to the post after the fact / on the receiving end...
But I like seeing the cw on posts even if I don't have a filter turned on for it. It gives me a better idea of what I'm expected to tag and makes people's issues more visible (I never would have thought to tag ec or food without taking the cue from other people)
@jennie i think the idea is you would create a culture around tagging posts. it lets you create positive filters too. "i want to see a bunch of nature posts" for example.
@dankwraith Yeah totally making the software support better would be great. I also feel like there's a social benefit to asking the poster to add tags themselves -- we're expecting everyone to think about how the things they're posting will effect others before they post them.
@dankwraith at the very least whitelists for tags that one is comfortable with would be great
