Content Filter On/off - Sensitive Photos
In the "Management Area" below the search field there is a check box
with two little buttons called "Content Filter On/Off".
When you search for photos with "Content Filter" switched to "On" all
photos which are considered by DT as "sensitive" are not shown.
Per default for each account the content filter is switched to "On".
Of course, what an individual considers as "sensitive" might heavily differ
by factors like age, background, culture, belief, gender etc.
Nevertheless DT seems to be quite strict with the definition of "sensitive"
and I suppose that also reviewers have different opinions about it.
is "Content filtered: YES",
but nearly the same photo with ladies instead of men
is "Content filtered: NO".
Needless to say that the first photo got 13 views but the second one without the
filter got 143 views.
Both photos belong to the same sport event and were downloaded nearly
at the same time. Therefore I suspect that many members of DT still have their content
filter switched to"On" without being aware of it.
Even if such kind of photos might be considered as "violent" by people who are not
familiar with karate, the fact is that the danger of being injured during a football
or soccer competition is much much higher - but such photos are not content
There was no age restriction for this public sport event - even children watched it.
My opinion: Since we are all grown-ups and can tolerate some "sensitiveness",
please switch your "Content Filter" to "Off" in your "Management Area".
