    Making Stickies to 'enforce' Nudity or NSFW warnings?

    I love to browse CA when there are lulls at work as well as write up critiques or do paint overs for people in the WIP or Critique Center. But there have been many times when that I've opened threads containing nudes or drawings definitely not work safe because the original poster didn't include a warning in the thread title. In another thread I read that generally people do this out of good faith, but I ask if it's possible to put a sticky to just to let people know to flag their work? Granted, it won't be a strict enforcement (like the title may suggest), but with all the new people coming in, they may not be aware that putting a warning is a nice gesture just because this is, after all, a serious art site.

    Hmm, I suppose we could do it but that might require putting a sticky in every forum....and then people often don't read them anyways.

    I'm not sure what a good solution is. Hopefully the thumbnails help give an idea of what the artwork might be, but that's not always helpful.

    Hmm I have nudity in my sketchbook quite a lot, not porn nudity but just some bare breasts and occasionally a penis when I drew a male nude. I never really thought of putting "nudity" in my sketchbook title because like almost every sketchbook contains (artistic) nudity right? But I should put it in the title then? Or is this only for explicit content?

    Love

    Understandably this sounds like a self centered request, I'm really not trying to make it sound that way though. The sketchbook section I understand is a place of 100% studies, which include figure work. So I do avoid the sketchbook section completely during work hours. My main concern was just the WIP or Critique Center section. There have been numerous occasions, in fact one just happened this morning, where people don't use the file attacher so I can't view a thumbnail to determine if I should click on the link or not. Their titles don't indicate if there is a nude either.

    I feel a bit silly and might look like a prude for suggesting this, but I can't be the only person to browse this place at work. XD

    By the way, instead of writing up a separate post on labeling NSFW or Nude art to be stickied, why not just write one tag line like: Please label thread titles if Nudity or NSFW content is present. So at first glance people know to label, and if they want more info why, that can be in the thread itself.

    I don't understand your suggestion...where does the tag line appear if not in a separate post?

    Sorry, the way I explained that was bad. My brain doesn't always function properly in the early morning. (: I meant if a sticky was made to explain this labeling, make the title self explanatory. That way they know at first glance to put those warnings in their thread title. If they want to know why, they can read the thread.

    Ok, that makes sense....it still sounds like we would have to make the post in multiple sections though, and I'm not too excited about doing that.

    You can make an announcement, so it appears on every forum.

    And I'm not entirely sure, but I think an admin can make a "sticky" that will appear on several forums with this board.
