An Inkbunny Suggestion I've not seen before: Whitelists

I've seen a few people suggest random ideas for the site since it opened, but somehow despite blacklisting tags being such a major feature I've never seen the opposite suggested.  I've been contemplating this sort of feature for quite a while and I think it could be a rather useful one for people who want to customize their IB experience even further.

I would sort of like to see a whitelist capability applied to ratings or tags.  Artists whose work I want to see regardless of what tags or ratings their artwork has.  Like I am very, very, veeeeerrrrrrrrry particular about scat and would like to for the most part block it entirely, but perhaps one artist I know does scat work that I actually like?  It'd be nice to just click a button that says, "Show this persons work no matter what blocked words/ratings" instead of having to turn on blank thumbnails for everything site wide.

Another example, I know @LittleMissFortunes doesn't like mature or adult artwork and blocks it, but would still like to be able to see all of my work.  I know I can of course link her to it, but I'm sure there are a number of other people out there who for the most part don't want a ton of smut overwhelming them, but know a few artists whose porn they really like, or maybe they find an artist that is a little paranoid and marks things mature when it's really closer to general.

I'm just sorta curious what my watchers think, because I've thought about this for a while and haven't really come up with too many negatives aside from it perhaps ending up confusing depending on its implementation.  Any thoughts?

I vote yes to this.

As you know i spoke about this to you on msn, But i would really like a whitelist feature myself aswell.
For me myself, I don't mind many adult content. I have some myself, But.. I also have these moods where i just want to be PG and such.. Now i could just make the entire site pg-only and block all the mature stuff. But by doing that i will also block my own work, And work i don't mind seeing. Such as Cyberblade's stuff, His one of my best friends and i can handle his art fine no matter how i feel.

It would be very usefull to be enable to whitelist artist, So you can still see naughty pictures.. But not be overloaded by them.
There is a huge diffrence between "Popular" on the front page between pg-only and mature+.. If you enable mature, all you see is naughty stuff most of the time. By adding a whitelist, You can still see some good artist you love, Yet not be invaded by pronz.

Also i know i would get a reply "You could just block the arist u dotn wanna see" and i could. But that would feel rude, Besides that. The idea of a whitelist i would like. Is that just like pg/mature/adult settings u can change. That it could be turned on/off. So you can also watch all the artist when you feel up for it.

In short, A option like this would help with showing the good PG side of IB aswell. And not -just- pronz. Aswell as giving me, and probely others aswell a option to jsut feel a bit more comfy about all the CP. And i could switch rating, But i dont feel like blocking my own art of good friends. So yush, I like this idea. And hope others do too.

I think a whitelist is a pretty good idea, could be expanded a little more with other details but still is a pretty good concept.

This is a good idea. I'd say, hammer out the particulars of exactly how you want the list to behave, then pitch it to Starling, and who knows, you may make it into a future version of Inkbunny. =^_^=

I normally don't do 'me too' posts, but since this is a 'voting' situation, I feel my voice should be heard.

I agree 100% with Alfador's post.

Perhaps this could be a starting point for implementation of the subject.

Personally, I have all content enabled except for a few blacklisted keywords.  I don't mind seeing work of certain artists who create stuff that would get blacklisted by my current blacklist.
A whitelist at the artist level could work in exactly the opposite manner that the current 'Block all of this user's submissions', completely ignoring all blacklisted keywords, but with notifications, just like they are blocked now (if you do not have that keyword completely disappear from what you see on the site) - the thumbnail is changed and clicking on the submission will notify the user exactly how the submission is tagged prior to seeing the submission, that way there is no issue.
Sure, people will complain about blacklisted keywords coming through, but this way the mods and admins can look at logs and say "You were notified prior to viewing x submission that it contains tags in your blacklist, and you continued anyway."

I vote yes, and I want to expand the idea a bit, where along with whitelisting an artist, one can also whitelist tags, so that they see a notification whenever art with certain keywords pop up. Might flood the notices menu a bit in some cases though, so maybe a separate page for whitelisted keywords.

Send them a support ticket and suggest it as a feature. =3

That's the idea, But we discussed this on msn and figured it would be good to get other user's feedback first.

For the most part, I don't care for Watersports, but I find Bosky's "pee" stuff kinda cute.

Or sometimes I "like" watersports as part and parcel of public humilitation/dom/sub/rape >_>; i'll shut up now

Yeah, what others side above :) Make a trouble ticket with the suggestion. I think it's very interesting!

Made that ticket a short while after I'd posted this journal.  :3  Glad to see my idea has been liked some peeps with power.

Great idea! We could allow whitelisting an entire account, just particular words on that account or even adult/mature/etc ratings for an account.

^^  Wow, glad to hear this from the head honcho.  :3  Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.  I really would love to see it expanded to do all of that, as it would provide the most control to everyone, but I could see how all that might end up confusing if taken too far.  Really glad you liked the idea. ^^
