Feelings

“Survive now, Cry later…”

I need to tell you about my recent experience with Flickr safety filters. For those who don’t know, Flickr filters all posts in order to make it a safe environment for everyone. Makes perfect sense. Now, what is considered safe, moderate or restricted, is up to everyone’s tastes, likes and behavior I guess.

I recently posted a picture I was in lingerie, nothing explicit shown, only an image you might as well see in a fashion magazine or even on TV. Someone apparently reported it as unsafe (I’m sorry that my bare arm offended you) and that resulted into my whole stream changing to moderate by flickr staff.

At first I thought, ok, even better in case I forget to change my safety options in the future. Then, I realized that, every picture I had spent hours posting on flickr, adding to groups and all of my work basically, had been removed from the groups that don’t allow moderate images.

I believe you can guess my frustration. I didn’t cry, but I was about to. Did I get a warning before that happened? No. Flickr staff did contact my right away, asking me to change my safety levels for certain images, which I did and everything is back to normal now, but oh my gosh, that surely stressed me out and would have saved me so much trouble if I had been given a heads up first.

Anyways, I would like to dedicate this fully clothed, sad picture to the person(s) I might have offended. Please know I’m not doing porn, it’s not who I am. If I look too sexy in some images, thank you, but that is probably the pose and the feeling I get out of it. If it insulted your taste, I apologize, but next time, let me know about it and I’ll fix it for you.

Thank you Slack Girl for these beautiful tears (what an oxymoron phrase!).

Be good everyone.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear that this happened to you, Exis. You’re right, Flickr should at least give you a good faith warning ahead of time, and let you potentially make needed changes. I’m glad to hear that it was sorted out in the end, but your frustration is totally understandable. Big hugs for you! ♥
