Posting links to 'those' websites and images.

Post by WANDERER » Mon Mar 14, 2011 8:51 pm

Some of you fellas insist on posting links to questionable websites and images, it's not up to me to say or do anything to stop you doing this, it doesn't bother me that much, however what I will say is that I think it's probably fair to give your fellow forumites warning if they are about to click on something dodgey. It's reasonable to assume that many forum users view this site at work and in a family environment at home, some may even be using smart phones or laptops in public spaces, so to avoid getting these people into trouble or maybe publicly embarassed, I am suggesting the following, it's a simple and easy way to still post your link but also give fair warning to others of the content of the link.

Simply put the following in front of the link so that people know, place the letters NSFW standing for 'Not Safe For Work' in bold and red font colour in brackets. Like so : (NSFW)

Thanks wands. Good suggestion.
NSFW is used a lot on another forum I frequent.
