I have sensitive content turned on in my profile, so I'm wondering why covers of items that are marked sensitive are blurred when browsing the site?

Can you give an example of an image that has been marked as sensitive content, so I can check if I have problems viewing them. Just copy and paste the url of a book example as a reply. Thanks.

No need as I found one in your submissions: https://books.discogs.com/book/644540-bedroom-voyeur

My Safe Search is switched off and the image is displayed blurred in your submission list. However when I open the Credit there is a message stating: 'This item has been marked as sensitive, adult or nsfw. You have enabled sensitive content'. Yet the image is displayed normally, so I'm guessing there is a bug in the system. I did find that when I switched on Safe Search the Credit was totally absent from your submission list.

The staff will need to deal with this. I have posted a comment in this Forum thread: https://books.discogs.com/forum/305997-warning-bug-in-the-system

Thanks. Even when going through my collection, the covers are blurred. I really have to open the detail page of the book before the cover shows properly.

I interpreted that message incorrectly. In fact it is confirming that I can view sensitive content. If I tick Safe Search and view that Credit I get this message: 'This item has been marked as sensitive, adult or nsfw. You have disabled sensitive content (change your settings)'. The Credit image is displayed blurred.

That still leaves the question as to why the Credit image is displayed blurred in your submission list when Safe Search is not activated.

Sorry, submission list = collection

It will have teething troubles. At first I thought only books (or magazines) could be set as NSFW. But credits can as well.

My apologies, where I have stated Credit, that should read Book.

There is currently no facility for nominating sensitive content in a Credit.

Any update on this by any chance?

No idea until staff reply

You can select a credit to be NSFW, the tock box is just below the submission notes.

I just want to know why covers are blurred, even when browsing my own collection. I don't really care what's marked as NSFW or not.
Safe Search is turned off in my settings, so I see NSFW stuff anyway, just would like the covers to not be blurred.

Its the same for me, though the image does show up when click on the book / credit.

I guess the one advantage of having it is knowing that you are clicking on a link that takes you to a NSFW image?

Anything?

It's extremely annoying when browsing my collection that I have to click on blurred covers to see it. What's the point of having the Save Search flag turned off if even your own collection is blurred. I want a proper overview of my collection, not a partially blurred one.

The reason is that anyone can view your collection, therefore anything that has been marked as sensitive content is blurred. The system does not give you an exemption from this rule. It is only when you open a book submission or credit that has been flagged as having sensitive content that it identifies you as having turned off Save Search.

It is up to the staff to modify this rule.

Look, there's a Safe Search option. If you turn it on, you won't see anything that's marked unsafe. I have that option turned off, so there's no point in showing me blurred covers.
I don't care what others can see. If they're offended by a titty on the cover of a book or magazine, they can turn Safe Search on and won't see any of it.

My collection should not be viewable by anyone, if it is, that's another bug in the system.

I will clarify my statement: anyone can view your contributions (my mistake using the term "collection"). I have given you my explanation as to why the images are blurred when you view your collection, but it could be wrong.

I repeat it is up to the site developers to reconfigure the permissions. As of late I'm wondering if there are any staff allocated to this site, so you might be lucky if you get a response.

That is, what I'm wondering too. No responses in the forum, no changes on the website, hopefully we are not submitting to an abadoned place which will be closed...

Last one out, please switch off the lights and close the door.

I have been wondering the same thing as Madir recently. It's obvious with the exception of Phasics who updates the monthly total every month that no staff members have been around here since the marketplace closed. Its a shame if this site is Abandoned as it has the potential of being a great database, but if no one is really uisng it, whats the point?

The future of this site has been at the forefront of my mind since the beginning of this year and I decided that I would finally break from the site just prior to the COVID-19 outbreak. Inactivity drew me back.

For an extended period both kali and falsepriest were inactive which I found alarming, but according to their respective accounts they were both on the site four days ago. I take it that responding to the Forum is no longer a priority.

I would be very disappointed if this site closed down, but like everything in life there is always a risk attached to it. What really saddens me is the lack of development which is frustrating.

I suppose you have to be optimistic otherwise the alternative is to find another hobby. Knit one, purl one.

By the way, phasics isn't a staff member, just a dedicated user who unfailing updates the monthly statistics.

Those links were corrupted because of the red dot that appears when text is copied and pasted in the Forum. I will try them again:
