The person in charge of the Nostromo set for Alien (1979) invented this interstellar standard for signs and labels in spaceflight

@zpojqwfejwfhiunz these are quite good. Could be used by NASA :-)

Btw Why is the image marked as sensitive? I can't think of anything sensitive in that one.

@cos @zpojqwfejwfhiunz While these may be nice, they‘re neither good in a semantic way, nor in regarding accessibility. Most are hard to grasp without written explanation, like many traffic signs. Given that at this point in time space flight is not yet something you just bump into that’s ok.
They depend on RGB colour vision being available which is an unsuitable requirement.

Some good approaches though and for a movie certainly a great idea to create such a set. Also in timely context.

@MacLemon @zpojqwfejwfhiunz The definition of sensitive content seems to vary quite lot, making tagging completely useless.

Maybe there's an option to show all pictures and I'll just mentally ignore the occasional NSFW content..

@cos Just because you cannot think of anything that makes this content sensitive to you in your current viewing situation doesn’t mean that this does apply to everyone seeing this posting. (Often referred to as privilege.)

Eg. You‘d benefit from this while having a slow uplink while riding the underground because your mobile client would not automatically load that data saving bandwidth/volume on a data plan.

Accessibility/CWs benefit everyone, even if you think it doesn‘t apply to you atm.

@MacLemon well if people use it too much for no obvious reason, it becomes useless. Requiring RGB vision to view a picture isn't a unsuitable requirement IMO, and does not make the actual content sensitive.

I'd be happy to have CW's on stuff that is truly sensitive for average person but this doesn't seem to work.

Btw there are settings for it, I had to change it to display all images ignoring CW tag.


@cos My RGB colour vision requirement was with regards to the icon set, not the CW.

As for the CWs: Who devices what your proclaimed “average person” may consider sensitive? You? Me? The state? Your belief in a fictitious sky fairy?

What may be sensitive to others but not yourself is the privilege that you currently experience. (Unlimited data plan, gender, being a white male, wealth, culture, etc.)

What doesn’t hurt you, but helps others still doesn’t hurt you. You turned it off already.
