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.

True, I've seen many artists that label their deviations as "Mature content", even when they have very light suggestive content. Perhaps they do it to stay "safe", but still...

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. ^_^

I loves me some mature content, so I don't need the filter. :D

I wish there was a nice site like Devart for all the "porn" and "hentai" stuff. No seriously, I do.

I think that there's one around there, but I'm not 100% certain. The closest thing was Sheezy before they changed their mature content policy.

What Mature Content Filter?

Don't need it.

1) I'm over 18.

2) Mature content doesn't bother me.

3) Even if something did, I know how to work this magical device called the "Back" button. :)

That, and half of my work now is "mature" (in the sense of blood and gore, not boobies...YET), so I have no issues.

:D

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. :nod:

I wonder if anyone else suggested a separation in the Mature Content category.

Many have suggested it on the suggestions Forum. At this rate it will be implemented on the next version of dA (or so I hope).

I see.:nod: Well, I hope so too.

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]

When I mean "women exposing themselves". I mean by women showing their bodies or legs.

I'll just full-view the picture if the artist states that it's just for a bit of blood. :P I don't want to see any nudity or anything sexually explicit by accident. Especially since I have younger brothers around.

Don't see the need. Personally, I can't stand filters. There are some pieces I like that are under "Mature", so yeah.

...Besides, What good are the filters if kids are exposed to worse crap through their own PEERS? >.>

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*
