Another suggestion concerning the (still pretty recent) content warning update! It mays seem like it contradicts my previous one but I swear they're compatible haha- As always, it's pretty much what it says on the tin, but I'll try to develop in order how to explain why this update could be useful to some.

The content warning update is cool, and I understand why it was very well welcomed, as it makes creators more confident in adding sensitive content on their OCs' profiles, and protects sensitive people to see stuff they don't want to... But there's still a problem (or could I say, it created a problem), in my opinion, that could be solved with a simple option: the option to ignore all content warnings, just like we can ignore content filters on images, or custom CSS. (Or perhaps, just like image filters, we could even choose which kind of content warnings we would like to ignore!)

I'm the kind of person who isn't shocked nor distressed by anything, especially when it comes to written fiction. Content filters are slowly becoming really overwhelming and annoying to me, especially when creators put them on any character who isn't "100% cutesy wholesome content". I can understand why, but I don't need this. I don't even read warnings anymore and just click on the green button. It slows down my browsing, which is pretty inconvenient when I have slow internet, or even more annoying when I have to see the same warnings reappear just because I'm on another device. And I know I'm not the only one, most of my friends do too, and probably even more people I don't know :')

What I love about TH is that we can choose to use updates or not, but right now it isn't the case with content warnings, and I just thought it could be super nice if it was the case! More display settings always make the site more pleasing and accessible for everyone c:

Thanks for reading! I hope you'll like and consider this suggestion! (:


Edit (December 2018): This thread was posted before the whole "account warnings being misused" issue started to be wide-spread. I'm talking about all warnings here, including those for actual sensitive material.

And yeah, "displaying a small icon indicating that a warning does exist" is a good idea!

I've been seeing so many warnings that've been "don't steal my characters," to the point it's annoying and kills the meaning of a warning

(idk how else to put that but basically because people use them for stuff like that it loses its purpose for protecting people with triggers from content that can harm them)
