Why is it that

I think it might be vestigial features from a different and older system design?

You can select some categories by browsing.

Personally I think that tags are usually sufficient. The more complex the submission system is the more likely people are to make mistakes when they're doing it anyway.
Oh yes!
Whoops!

You can protect me from the diapers?

That's a very clean face you have. Would be a shame if somebody shoved their diaper in it.

But for a small fee, maybe that won't happen.

The search function is simply better.

Or browsing people's favourite galleries, because they have already done the work of curating the art for you.

I suspect some clever browser scripts could be used to automatically populate the search field with tags/keywords to exclude. I don’t really have much experience writing/using scripts myself, but I imagine someone else might be able to help you out there.

Scripts existed in the past, but

-downloading somebody else's code into your computer could be unsafe

-furaffinity staff did, for a while, advise people not to use popular scripts. I think they may have been mistaken for nefarious bot activity.

Should probably introduce a keyword blocker and use an F-List like system (don't go on there if you're under 18, please) to mark out the tags of things you don't want to see.

So for example, I could set it to block the tag 'inflation'. This would only block things marked with that tag, so it does rely on users properly tagging their uploads...but it would work for the most part.

How difficult this is to implement, I have no idea. But just a thought.

I’m thinking a simple JavaScript, could even be used in the shape of a bookmark, to find and pre-populate the search field. Probably would also be possible to build a personalized search page just generating a search URL like what keywords do when you click them on submission pages.

It’s true that installing code you don’t understand is potentially unsafe. Practice best judgment.

Retroactively adding filters is pretty complicated, compared to implementing them when initially building a system. I’m pretty sure it’s on the list of eventually-planned features, but it’s not a simple problem.

i've found using search and searching for "general furry art" helps. but it doesn't stop clicking onto the website and having the first thing you see be fetish art. if there is a system being worked on to take fetish art out of general, i hope it comes soon.

Although half canine, is not a wolf.
Me getting the typical "YCH" commissions, vore and of course the YCH reminders that are posted every milosecond.
Granted it's random so maybe I'm just lucky on what got recently submitted?

There were plans for adding a blacklist feature to FA, when that will be done is unknown.

Whiles there may exist scripts and such to act as a personal blacklist, I would personally advice against it unless you know of what it actually intails in the code and what it may do to your computer.
Like any websites and downloading, use at your own risk.

If you don't want to see those kind of stuff then turn on SFW mode, and use search filters if searching.

I can set my watch by these threads. Though this is the first time it's inflation diaper stuff. Last thread was body horror level muscle stuff. Then there were like 3 threads on porn. And that's in the month before the forums went down. The gist of all of them was "what's this fetish stuff doing in SFW" basically. And once again, I think we just need an obvious tick box of "this is fetish material" separate from SFW/NSFW - catches the grey area stuff.

That being said - I did a brief scan and didn't find a single diaper post in about 20-25 pages of browse. You sure you don't have something ticked by default doing this?

You can toggle the site to SFW mode if you want to avoid sexual content,
If only that would help against all fetish art.
But yes, for the most part, using the search option is the safest way of avoiding unwanted fetish art, albeit not a very practical one.

And people need to get better at tagging their uploads. I see way too many people who either upload stuff with no tags and/or upload content with a different rating.
 

VeeStars

uh I can explain?
I would use the search feature but you can't search with just -tags you have to actually search for something which is a bit annoying for browsing.

I'd give my hypothetical firstborn to the gods if it would mean that I wouldn't have to get bombarded with YCH- and Adoption-Reminder-S**T every single time I log onto this website. Permanent filter-settings would also be neat.

That I would concur with, even being able to remove them from your watch results and stuff. Some artists are... aggressive at posting.
 

Filter

uwu
I don't see much of that stuff these days. Whether I've acquired the ability to tune it out or simply learned what to avoid over the years, I'm not entirely sure. If you have an account, you might just want to look for artists who specialize in what you'd like to see and follow them. That way, you'll have a degree of control over the content that you're exposed to. That's what many folks do.

The browser addon Filter Affinity used to be my best friend for things like that. But then the site updated, the filter stopped working, and now everything is on fire. :<

I'll be honest. I have the same problem. I feel like users should be set to a higher standard on tagging their "covert fetish art". It's not like I'm clutching my pearls, I get that nsfw is a genuine art form that deserves it's place here but sometimes I wanna know that I can browse "latest" on my phone without my mom seeing pictures of someone's actual feet in the "sfw filter" over my shoulder.

Like, there ARE underage furries, and they don't need to see that stuff unless they are old enough to ACTIVELY be curious enough to look for it. Sfw FA should be yknow. Sfw.

I agree with this.
