Offensive content/sj-proposal

Part of an old discussion about offensive content.

A proposal: A two-pronged effort.

  1. Provide an NPOV way to tag pages and media (see example list[s] below), and offer default preferences that process tagged content in natural ways ('no nudity or sex media'; 'only links to violent media'; etc). This could be done via inclusion of an appropriate template in an article or media-description, on save (that is, when the page is saved with such a template in it, a flags column is updated in a db somewhere), and then included in rendered pages as css classes.
    • To avoid subtle vandalism, it might make sense only to offer this for media, not for whole pages.
  2. Provide a way for an editor to hide a section of a page by default, with given text for the "show hidden content" link.
    • for instance: There is much debate surrounding the book's controversial ending {{hide:(plot spoiler)|The end of the book is seen by many as its [[fatal flaw]]. The sudden unexplained disappearance of Marge's brother may have been intended as a commentary on his early life, or the completion of some other story thread, from the book's lost introduction; however, literary experts such as [[Marcel Dupre]] suggeset it was the result of being under deadline pressure.}} would render as <a href="[...]">(plot spoiler)</a>", a link which would refresh the page but show the spoiler. There could be multiple such hidden blocks of content on a single page.

example list of keywordsEdit

Here are suggested categories. They are preceded by a relevant ICRA tag where one exists. For example, "nf=1 sex-expl" means that the category "sex-expl" would correspond to <ICRA nf=1></ICRA> Note that roughly half of these categories already exist in some form (and many have subcategories, though sometimes not very cleanly delineated ones. See for instance "topless women showing armpits")
