Approved Sites? 2012-04-13 20:54:40 Reply

Hey all,

This has been bugging me since the redesign. What makes a site "approved?" I see that most big ones (youtube, google, etc) are green, but among them is my crappy site. Back when the fan-net was a thing I did have my site in there, so I'm wondering if I'm green just because of that.

Anyone know anything about this?

<3 AK

They're added manually (I probably put yours in at some point). The idea behind them is to warn people who're blindly clicking links what they might be letting themselves in for. The only ones to really look out for are the ones in red, which are either not safe for work or purpose. Green means that one of us has checked it over and then entered it as an approved site, amber is not the end of the world. The descriptive bubble at least lets you know what domain you're headed to and is more visible than stuff that might be displayed towards the bottom of the page on hover.
