Hi, I read "One last thing I'm looking for feedback on: Porn" so I decided to write.
It seems to me that simply limiting the number of adult content is not a good solution, as this will push the audience away from the site (meaning a good audience, which is likely to download wallpapers to other sections).
As far as I understand, you do not like to see a large amount of erotic content and a small amount of other content, but then in theory it is better to increase the influx of images from other sections in order to reduce the appearance of eroticism. To implement this idea, you can try to attract users to other sections, both downloading wallpapers and viewing other wallpapers. For example, to show from time to time pop-up notifications with wallpapers in those categories that may be of interest to the user, as well as from others of which he has never seen or was not interested in order to expand his range of actions. With the help of such offers it is possible to offer interesting wallpapers and to map a user's interests. There is also another more effective option based on the same idea, namely, not just offering other sections and wallpapers, but coming up with a system that will encourage the user to do something to stimulate people's interest in other sections. But there is a problem that even if you come up with such a system, there will remain users for whom it will be completely uninteresting, and therefore they will post everything in one section that interests them, and since the section “porn” is replenished most of all, this option also not very good.
There is still a change in the image display system itself. For example, all the images that the user uploads are not immediately published, but collected in the user's feed (something like a queue) (it is infinite and only the owner and people who manage the site see it, and the user can edit the order in which the images are published at any time in the flesh until the moment the image is published and in the order that he likes), the feeds of all users will be added to one common feed of the entire site, from which the publications go when the necessary turn comes. The shared feed is hidden and visible only to people managing the site. The meaning of all this is that thanks to these restrictions it will be possible to hang a filter on the tape that will regulate the flow of the necessary images. The regulation of this general flow is naturally the responsibility of the site administration. For example, per day there should be 33% of "General" wallpapers, 33% of "Anime", 33% of "People", as well as 50% of "SFM", 25% of "Sketchy", 25% of "NSFW" if you downloaded 10 " NSFW "wallpapers, and" SFW "wallpapers only 15, then the system no longer publishes wallpapers in the" NSFW "section until 5 additional wallpapers appear in the" SFW "section, or until the next day, so that the restriction is updated and you can was again lay out the pictures in the section "NSFW". On the basis of this stream, you can also build a reward system, for example, the user selects any section in which he wants to promote his images (for example, "NSFW / women"), then if he uploads some picture to another section that is currently behind in quantity images, then those images that are in its desired section rise in the general flow (as if they change their place in the queue among the same "NSFW / women" wallpapers) and appear faster. Advantages of this method: 1) New images will appear equivalently (more precisely, equally equivalent as required). 2) There will be no restrictions on downloading content, and all the images uploaded by the user will not disappear anywhere. 3) Due to “promotional” images, the total number of uploaded images will increase. 4) For the administration of the site it will be easier to moderate the wallpaper, if they have not yet been published. Cons: 1) some part of the audience will leave anyway, since the need to wait will not suit them as well as the usual prohibitions on laying out, although obviously not in such a large number. 3) There is a high probability that those images that will be downloaded as “encouraging” in order to promote their truly interesting wallpaper to the user will in fact be just “garbage”, just to speed up the process of appearing their desired wallpaper. 4) This method will not affect the uneven distribution of images in sections (well, it can only slightly change it), since all downloaded images will be laid out and the values will only be changed due to additional "encouraging" images. To change this last minus, it is necessary not only to make a corrective flow for a day, week, month, etc., but also for tags. For example, the user has a favorite section / tag "ass", and he wants to add a new image there, but there are too many images with the tag "ass", and, for example, with the tag "landscape" - not so many, and he is invited to speed up the appearance of his picture upload the picture "landscape". For such "encouraging" wallpapers, additional conditions can be set, for example, the image must be at least 1000x2000 px, etc., to reduce the possibility of garbage. With such a system, the uneven distribution of pictures will change. In general, the appearance of garbage is no longer a problem with a large number of images in some sections and not large in others. This is a problem due to the fact that such an opportunity exists. I have already seen someone here writing that some users only crack trash. In my opinion, this is due to the fact that the site does not have an assessment that it is not necessary to upload it. The site on the images has only 2 indicators: views and the number of "favorite", but they only show the relationship of whether this is interesting or not, but they do not show what is good and bad (in fact, what is needed and not needed). To make it clearer, I’ll give an example, I’m a little girl, I’m interested in ponies and dolls, I’m not interested in welding, metalworking and animal corpses are completely disgusting and if welding and metalworking can still be someone interen, very many people will not want to see animal corpses. This is to say that although there are no such images as animal corpses on the site (I’m not sure I didn’t check it), there’s no system showing that any images fit the slag, nobody will be interested. Usually they use a system of likes for dislikes and if the post's rating goes to negative values, it is deleted, and if the user often uploads such images that go to negative values, then they send him to the ban, since it’s clear that he’s nothing good lay out and it makes no sense to keep it. This site does not have this, and when the picture has few views and "favorites", this does not guarantee that the image is unambiguously bad, it only means that it is not popular.
If anything, I’m not going to say with this text that these methods are ideal and that it is worth using them, I rather just wanted to prevent the Porn - People content from being cleaned up and show that it’s worth being more careful about decisions because they always have consequences that initially may not be noticeable, but at the same time destructive, as is the case with the Four Pests Campaign.
Phew, well, that's all. But in fact, for me personally, all this is not very important. My main request is that in the next update we introduce manual sorting of users' favorites folders, as well as create subfolders of favorite ones. But the main thing is still sorting, because when it is not there, and you want to fit the new category somewhere in the middle of the old ones, you have to rename all the others and then drag the wallpaper from them. This is terribly inconvenient. (Although maybe I just don’t know something and there is already the possibility of sorting)
