Add a whitelist feature to the blacklist.

Vas 3 years ago • updated by Digby (Community Manager) 2 years ago 2

I did a quick search to see if white list or whitelist existed in the topics here already and didn't see any. Basically, I want a white list feature as well. For example, I block #ych because I hate seeing them, but I also have the word "complete" white listed so thaif someone posts a YCH Completed thing, I can still see it. This can be used for other things other than just YCH related stuff, of course.


Basically I'm suggesting that if there is a tag you white listed in the item that contains a blacklisted tag, show it anyway. Users should not white list something generic however. If someone blacklists #diaper, then they shouldn't also whitelist some generic tag that might make that black listed tag useless.


In an example, I'd ask users who do the whole FA YCH crap here, to tag completed YCHs as #completedych, or something similar, and I'd whitelist that. The only example I can think of really, the FA script I use checks titles, not tags.

While I understand the intention for this request, it seems like it could make things overly complicated for tagging. Something that may be easier is to just blacklist a tag for open YCH (#ych-open, for example); that way, you are only blocking any new auctions and completed items show up.


Either way, the biggest problem with certain things is that you'd also need to get artists to agree to a tag. It may be just as hard to get artists to consistently use "#ych-open" as it is using "#ych-completed" or "#ych-result." I don't think it would be right to create a rule for tags with most content, though, so it would largely be up to the community to decide how to tag. With that said, good tagging would be the best way to resolve this issue.

I just wanted to bump this again, the "tags of interest" is not a whitelist as some may think. I want to whitelist "ych-completed" and "ych-result" while keeping "ych" blacklisted, so that if the whitelisted tag is there, it will whitelist the blacklisted image.


This gets complicated however, because of how many tags I've blacklisted. We might need an if else system that lets us add a tag, and then add a whitelist to that tag.


"YCH" Except ("tag1","tag2")

"Rape" Except ("tag1")

etc etc so on so forth.


As it stands, I have these blacklisted;

human, cub, underage, diaper, humans, ych, baby-fur, babyfur, diapers, diaperfur, toddler, ageplay, baby_fur, diaperfurs

Couldn't think of an others to add that might cause me to accidentally see something from that list. But I would need a white list for human stuff and ych stuff because people who upload the result of a YCH tend to just tag it YCH and I've been going in and altering the tag with a suggestion of "ych-result" and such.
