NSFW content is now hidden in a new way

Previously, posts marked NSFW were hidden to users by default, and unless users changed their settings they wouldn't see any of this content. They wouldn't know it existed.

Now, NSFW content is blurred by default. When you click on it, it gets unblurred. You can change your account settings to change the default behavior in your posts lists; you have the option to hide it from view (so it isn't even in the list), blur it (what it should be set to now), or simply show it without blur (it will still say NSFW).

Encouraging the use of Moderator Mail

We previously added the "modmail" feature to the site - a shared inbox that all moderators of a circle see and can respond from. Sending your moderation inquiries to the shared inbox, instead of an individual moderator's PM box, means you can be helped by the next mod who is online.

The "message the moderators" button is in a circle's sidebar under the moderator list. There was a bug that caused banned users to not see the button, this has been fixed.

Now when you go to send a private message to a moderator, you will be prompted to send any moderation-related mail to a circle's modmail. The option to send a PM to the individual is at the bottom of the list.

Odds and Ends:

  • Sticky posts no longer get archived automatically
  • Usernames are limited to 20 characters going forward
  • Moderator dashboard now highlights open reports and unanswered modmails so they are easier to find
  • Circle logs have been improved for moderators
  • The old-style notifications in the tab name are back
  • Other fixes
