Suggestion: Post Ratings

Hi again,
got another suggestion for ya...

When new posts are made, you should have an option to choose some sort of age rating or something similar. So if a post just contains mild stuff then has a "Suitable for All rating" or if a post contains Racist things it has a "Racist" tag on it, or if it contains "NSFW" then it has a "NSFW" tag. A bit like age ratings and pictures you get on games in Europe, so if a game contains a lot of bad language, this image is shown next to the age rating (In the US its things like T for Teen, in EU its things like 3+, 7+, 12+ 16+ etc, with pictures if needed):
bad language

So maybe you could have these sort of tags next to the post.

I have been fiddling with the source code to give an idea to what i mean. You should have a radio button to represent a sort of "Age Group" and then appropriate check boxes for further indication.

Safe Content. No extra options. There is no way that this could be offensive.
safe - suggestion: post ratings

Mild Content. Options such as mild language. This is your "Teen Ratings".
mild - suggestion: post ratings

NSFW. Obvious really. Adult-ish stuff that could be taken offensively and is a large warning. Things like Racism.
nsfw - suggestion: post ratings

I couldnt be bothered to put them into the HTML again but you could have simple symbols by the posts to warn. You could easily figure out a place to put on the post, like here:
rating area

The rating icons could look similar to this (I made a quick draft):
guide - suggestion: post ratings

For the unrated posts, mods should be able to rate them.

If a post has been incorrectly rated, then when the report button is clicked, you could make it ask "What do you want to report?

>Incorrect Rating
>Terms of Service violation
So a ToS violation would simply be a deletion. What the report button does now.

The incorrect rating would alert a mod and let them change/add a rating.

Oh my, i have provided a lot of work for you, but this should really help.

    i agree, but what i meant by NSFW was that borderline stuff which isnt bad but you dont want your employer, teacher or parents to see. If you know what i mean. Like them "Totally Obvious" posts etc.

    It is not logic to have NSFW tag for Safe content, it could be misunderstood, it should be named somehow differently
    - xdvx October 3, 2010, 3:31 am
    well i never suggested this is what should be, i just couldnt think of anything else. 18+ gives the wrong impression too :/

    MNBSFW - May not be suitable for work :D
    - xdvx October 3, 2010, 3:45 am
    Maybe it is not safe for work but i cant make my mind up if it makes the wrong impression...

    I don't think, it won't help. For Example: If you put ''Do not click, adult content'' in the posts name, I think still more than 80% would click it. Maybe you have to put a question on the link that only adults can answer. xD (To much work)

    well not a "do not click, adult" its just a warning. for example, if im browsing sharenator and my parents are stood behind me, i dont wanna click on something NSFW
    - SkinnyBill October 3, 2010, 3:26 am
    We know that our parents, won't stand all the time behind you while you're surfing on the internets.

    skinny bill this sound relly cool and it will keep us from geting reported. like my new post i just made like right now would be mild lange mild content. what do you think

    becuase of the loo roll one, im not sure wether it would be NSFW or Mild. If it wasnt for the loo roll thing then mild.
    - SkinnyBill October 3, 2010, 4:24 am
    ya i was thinking the same thing
    - castlewarsisawsome October 3, 2010, 4:36 am
    Your post was inappropriate and deleted, while we don't have NSFW directory or domain we should not have posts like this one here.
    - xdvx October 3, 2010, 4:39 am
    but ive seen worst post so if your not lieing about it was deleted im going to get relly pissed of because i spent 2 hours finding those pics D:
    - castlewarsisawsome October 3, 2010, 4:46 am
    oh an i think their doing this skinnybill because sharenator keeps screwing up i think their working out the flaws right now
    - castlewarsisawsome October 3, 2010, 4:48 am
    Sorry dude, rules are rules we are trying to delete all old bad stuff and prevent new bad stuff too. I'm really sorry for your wasted time
    - xdvx October 3, 2010, 4:48 am

    nah actually i have been emailing paul and he said that the server was down for some reason and this is on his to do list.

    he said the main server went down for some reason, and its back after a couple of tweaks. he isnt sure what it is but he is running tests right now.
