#2018 new enhancement

Add functionality to flag topics and replies NSFW

Reported by: netweb Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords: needs-patch


WordPress usage is pretty diverse, occasionally support topics and follow up replies can contain NSFW links to the site to aid in troubleshooting.

The policy on NSFW: ... references to adult content that have not been highlighted as NSFW.

ipstenu [4:59 AM] Maybe someone should open a ticket and suggest we have a moderator way to flag a post NSFW which will change the subject (maybe the URL) and somehow alert folks at the top?

Related: User actions:

  • "Flag Author" does not change their bbPress role, they retain the "Participant" role when flagged in this scenario
  • "Spam Author"(#1960) will change the users role to "Blocked" and mark all the users topics and replies as spam.
  • "Block Author"(#1989) only changes the user role to "Blocked" and not change the status of any topics or replies

Maybe something along the lines of the recent "Resolved" changes, an icon representing NSFW added to topics see 2018-meta-01.png​ and topic views along with a similar action to the "mark as resolved" and "mark as not a support question" we add "mark as nsfw" see 2018-meta-02.png​

Related: we should investigate doing similar for "Not a support question" at the same time

I think the simpler, and more user friendly, solution here would be a checkbox "My site or content may be considered Not Safe for Work (NSFW)", kept as postmeta.

If ticked, prefix the post title with [NSFW] (ideally also with the abbr markup so we can write it out in full for those who are unfamiliar with the term).

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
