I turned it on the moment I got DA and havn't turned it off since XD; I'm kinda squeemish so I don't want to run into anything accidentally. And if I'm THAT curious about a pic, I can just push "veiw anyway" or browse on a club account X3
don't bother turning it on since there are some great works out there with "mature" themes in it. also sometimes there are a few deviants who put it their works under mature content for no reason despite the fact that the deviations have no nudity or violence.
I don't have it on because while some of the stuff that falls under that category (suggestive nudity, fetish stuff) really does offend me, much that would be headed Mature (non-suggestive nudity, violence) does not, and there's much of the latter that I wouldn't want to miss. ^_^
The only reason I don't have the mature content filter on is because of the really good artworks or writings that can be bloody or gory. I'd be glad to turn it on, since there are so many lewd pictures out there and women exposing themselves. (Especially of Peach Toadstool.)
The truth is that I am not offended by bloody or gory themed pictures at all. In fact, I sometimes like bloody or gory scenes.
But I completely disfavor sexually explicit artworks and writings. (And many of these themes for Peach have been appearing a lot recently, which was one of the reasons why I took that one month break around March.) I get really offended easily by such themes, whether majorly displayed or minorly displayed.
And because of that, I personally think there should be 2 Mature Content Filters: one for violent themed works, and one for sexually themed artworks.
You have some very good points, the separation of the violent mature content from the suggestive content is one of the most common suggestions that I hope they implement in the near future; seems that it would be great for many users.
Also, I have a curious random question: have you heard of Half-Life 2? See, I requested Feimi to draw Peach as if she were in Half-Life 2. If you want to know more about that game, you might have to do background research.
Feimi did complete a concept art of it. She isn't actually done with the request. [link]
Eh heh heh...I knew we had one when I first started out on DA, but never enabled it since I'm 18 and can handle it. Then again...like many others, I forgot it ever existed. Not that I plan on using it of course.
I knew about the mature content but not the filter. anyways doesn't matter i will have 18 beat by a year here soon (ill be 19 if it seemed confusing) and i guess i never really cared seeing as i never knew about it
I'll just full-view the picture if the artist states that it's just for a bit of blood. I don't want to see any nudity or anything sexually explicit by accident. Especially since I have younger brothers around.
I'm over 18, and really don't need it. I'll look at a few of the mature things which is okay, especially if it's tasteful. However, if it's crap then I get annoyed... I remember getting a little mad when I saw that nearly EVERY Daily Deviation included naked people. Okay, the Human body is wonderful, we all know that, but does that mean it's PERFECTION and MUST be a DD? Gahhhh! *rushes in circles*
