Add trigger warning field/checkbox Anonymous 13529

Seems like people on here talk about politics, rape, doctors, and any other assortment of triggering things. Would it be possible to add a #trigger tag that users can filter out, similar to the mature content tag?

i like the idea a bit.

How about adding #fun tag to every silly threat, so users can filter THAT out?

I don't want to hear tumblr feminist SJW crap or /pol/ conservitard White Power shit.

Can someone explain why can't you just hide uninteresting threads?

Silver Strength!TwiDasH7n2 13548

Yes, yes, the Great Hebrew Conspiracy has isolated you to make an example. Better sever all internet cables and huddle in the basement for forty days and forty nights. Slaughter a lamb and paint its blood on your door frame, that the Spirit of Jew might pass over and no plague befall you.

Agreed, that's no problem (although, like porn, it would be easier and less effort for the user to filter en masse, provided there were a good way to separate, which there probably isn't). A more meaningful issue is dumping within unrelated threads; "Oh look someone said 'trans' or mentioned a political thing now this thread is about that." Dunno if that can reasonably be addressed by anything except a cultural meme.

No. That is dumb

If this is legit, it's hysterical that anyone could be this tumblr.

If not funny joke.

I don't really see the problem with this. Will allow /oat/ to be what it's always existed for for those who enjoyed it being that way - to piss around and be silly on, not be a serious discussion board (that was chat, at least to a greater extent).

Do you think that hashtags inherently equal tumblr? We've had them on this site performing distinctive functions for the longest time now.

#tigger warning

I'm dealing with ptsd and certain subjects can make me go into full-on panic attacks, and I think enforcing trigger warnings would be ridiculous. Compare it to NSFW warnings, where there are fairly established and widely understood criteria for what might be SFW and what mightn't, so it's not that hard to follow. Triggers on the other hand can be just about anything. Even if some subset could be agreed on it'd make natural conversations difficult. It just puts too much burden on the posters to watch every word they say, which is exactly the kind of stifling PC crap that a fair amount of online culture grew out of rebelling against in the first place.

With that out of the way, I don't think providing it for those who want to use it voluntarily is a bad thing. Just make it clearly understood that its use isn't required is all.

Why would anyone want to encourage stuff like that?
This place is slow as it is, no one wants even less threads with replies.

Unfortunately I was raped once by a man wearing a shirt that read #trigger, so a trigger tag would be triggering for me.

Seriously though; if your talking about what I think you are then all the triggery stuff was hidden anyway.

"triggering" and trigger warnings are an invention of tumblr feminist.

the hashtag is a form of metadata tagging that's been around since long before social media.

Anonymous 13561

nah. yall are overthinking it. the site is fine.

Anonymous 13563

trigger warnings are meh.

A culture of tagging thread content could make sense, though. Say, if you want a thread to stick to a topic, you put #that topic in the OP.

Also, if threads about various controversial things tended to be tagged in a standardized way, it would allow for a more refined user blacklist than just "do you want mature yes/no".

What if my trigger is firearms?
Wouldn't mentioning triggers trigger me?


Anonymous 13566

I take it all back. 99% of the users here suck and their rage at mandatory trigger labeling would be hilarious. Do it.

The thing is though is there's no reason why it has to be "trigger"; that was just the suggestion for an appropriate name for the tag.

Something like #discussion or #serious would work just as well.

Anonymous 13572

If that's your concern, I'd suggest #serious instead of #trigger.
