The Grime Writer marker is actually… more like an anti-marker. It’s
filled with a cleaning solution that allows you to get your graffiti on
in a clean way! While you should never “clean” someone else’s property…
it’s perfect for those notes on your own windshield
screaming “wash me”! Much more acceptable and a lot less illegal than
traditional graffiti, you can leave your mark anywhere you find yourself
and leave your squeaky clean reputation intact.
Since there’s been a lot of NSFW content policing in certain fandoms I consider myself a part of, I wanted to make a handy post for people to reference and reblog about how to make tumblr searches minor friendly without resorting to demanding fandom tag changes (because, let’s face it, that’s a really short term way of dealing with the issue.)
If you are someone who creates NSFW content, please ensure that you flag your blog as such. It’s your responsibility to do so! All you have to do is follow these super easy steps below:
Make sure that little slider is blue!
You can also add ‘nsfw’ and ‘adult content’ tags to your posts, which helps people who use third party filter plug-ins (e.g. Tumblr Savior) to keep their dashes clean.
Content viewers are ALSO responsible for keeping their searches and dashes clean. Content creators can only do so much. If you are the guardian of a minor or a minor yourself, please make the effort to ensure the tumblr account used is on the correct setting.
When you search a tag, there will be three small icons to the right of the screen. If you don’t want to see NSFW content in your searches, click the padlock icon to the appropriate setting! It’s that simple!
Providing that people do their part, these measures help to keep adult content out of the hands of minors. Each side has a part to play. We can’t hold one party solely accountable.
Also, I would like to add that if content creators wish to use special fandom tags for their adult content, that’s super fine and awesome of them! But, if a content creator doesn’t wish to stop using the main fandom tag (for reasons such as viewership and exposure of their work) and they are taking all the precautions they can outside of this to make things safe… well, let’s not be dicks about it, yeah? They’re doing the best they can with the tools provided.
On the flip side, if someone is not taking the measures I’ve listed above to help keep things kid friendly and is being a massive ding dong about it? Report them! (Only do this after you’re absolutely sure they are a huge butt head.)
Thank you and please spread the word! I hope this helps.
