Policy/Cultural Expectation for NSFW/SFW content?

Yo!
Just wondering what our community policy/cultural expectation is on SFW/NSFW (safe for work / not safe for work) visual content is?
I’ve seen some stuff that is not, like, technically explicit but is also something that if I worked in an office and had OMD up on a different window, I would not be comfortable being seen by co-workers or bosses.
But I don’t work in an office. So I defer to others, but would love to get a read on what our flavor of expectation is. :slight_smile:

Thoughts?

If we spoiler for food, mentions of body stuff, etc. I think we should spoiler for things that would raise an eyebrow from a casual passer-by. This is my personal opinion.

Do you mean forum wide or in the more general threads? I could see someone just giving a blanket warning that their journal might have some NSFW stuff and you could avoid it, but in the more casual open threads it could be a big problem.

I don’t work in an office but often screen share. Please save me from myself and spoiler things that have images of sexy things for when I forget.

Good clarifying question. My gut says general threads, and journals are their usual do-what-thow-wilst (within reason).

As (I think?) one of the few people working on site in an open office, I only read OMD on my phone and we talk about too much anti capitalist stuff for me to ever log in on my work laptop. So for actual work appropriateness I don’t really think it’s necessary. BUT if we’re using “NSFW” to spoiler graphic things and people would, in general in their lives, enjoy spoilers for that stuff because of personal preference/presence of kids or family members then I think it’s a good idea.

That makes sense to me. Will implement in my own posting. Good call to point out something we might not being thinking of!

I also don’t mean to be like, the arbitrator! Just wanted to point out that not everyone is in positions to have boobies on their screen. :slight_smile: Espec. in context of this being a financial forum LOL.

Yeah, I have a kid and family. Text stuff is usually cool but if we can spoiler nsfw/uncomfortable with your kid or grandma images I’d love it. Maybe use the tag nsfw if you’re posting images in your journal? I have some posters muted bc their images don’t always suit how things are in my life

This is where I’m at. The typed stuff doesn’t bother me, but some of the more explicit visuals are kind of a no go for me without warning. I often scroll this forum at parks where I’m hanging out with my kid, I don’t want to raise any eyebrows among other parents.

The rule in hospitality is generally (aside from niche places) “8 and 80”, meaning nothing in the space should be unpalatable to a person who is 8 years old or a person who is 80 years old. Maybe helpful as a guideline?

I spoilered it!

Edited to add: ANNDDD the starter image wasn’t NSFW. So only a problem if you clicked on the video which was clearly labeled as containing possum sex. At which point, you have made your own choices.
