Expanded Content Filtering
Some updates went live yesterday but they came with feed bugs that are currently being cleaned up, sorry for the mess.
May 8th 1:33pm Update: The feed bugs should be fixed now. You should see your ratings filters at the top and they should correctly filter your results for any entry that contains a rating. Things like forum and blog posts currently don't have ratings data and will show up regardless - long term we hope to log more details for those, so people can appropriately rate any images they post in the blogs or forums.
This form lets you set global ratings filters, manage your blocked users list and cultivate a list of tags to avoid.
The blocked users list already existed but now applies to Art Portal browsing. Sick of seeing art by someone in particular? Block them! When you block a user, you can click the pencil button to edit which site systems you are blocking them from.
The Tags to Avoid list is new and only applies to the Art Portal at the moment. If there’s a particular type of content you want to avoid, give this a try! You can block tags like furry, anthro, and pony if they bother you; the choice is yours.
Custom Date Browsing
If you visit the Art Portal and click the “Range” dropdown, you will see a new option for “Custom.” Select this and two date range boxes will appear, allowing you to fine-tune your results for a specific period.
We’ll be bringing these options to Movies, Games and Audio as things progress.
Best of April
Your votes are in and the Best of April have been determined! We changed the nomination process this month due to a rising trend of people selecting short, sexy movies for monthly best. We welcome as much as possible on NG but in the case of monthly awards it needs to be a little more selective or else I’ll give up on all this and no one wants that, right?
