Flagging: Help us craft this place

Hey guys and gals, we've been hearing concerns about nails being NSFW, nails being too Pinteresty, as well as concerns about nails being removed unwarranted. Here's a little detail on that and what you can do to keep Manteresting a place you feel comfortable, a place you find interesting and a community you want to continue to be a part of.

Firstly, this community is for you. We want you to continue to be a part of it in as many ways as we can. We love the interactions we've had with you so far, the observations of you and your fellow man and woman (yes, we have a strong and growing women membership, ladies that are sick of cupcakes and rosebuds who want more variety. We love you ladies!) and we are so excited about the future of the site.

We are proud to be a part of the community ourselves. We are so proud of you guys for bringing with you ideas of manliness that go far beyond what many people expected of this site. Clint Eastwood, street art, men who need no introductions because of their timeless masculinity, and yes, beautiful women. We feel you guys understand that this is not a porn site and you have really classed the place up. Thank you!

Then why are you removing nails of women?

Well, we aren't exactly. This is your space and we've handed the tools over to you to keep it yours and craft it as you see fit. Yes, we do moderate the site and remove anything that is blatant nudity/pornography. Anything that would get you in trouble at work does not belong on the site, no matter how interesting you might find it. We have Maxim for that kinda stuff and for many reasons including legal, we simply can't have nudity on the site. Men or women. Period.

But as for everything else, the tools are in your hands. On every nail, there is a "Report" button. That report button is set up to automatically remove nails that get a certain number of flags. It does NOT consider content, it considers flag count. That's it. And when I say remove, that's not exactly accurate. Nails with flags get removed from the home page stream only. They still live in workbenches, and on the People You Follow page.  If they got flagged, that means someone in the community found them offensive.

What is "offensive"?

Offensive is in the eye of the beholder. You can't judge them for taking offense over a nail no matter its contents. We've seen nails of ladies, men, harsh language, racism (even in jest), and puppies flagged. Yes, puppies.

This is your space! Keep it yours by flagging things that offend you, including things you think belong on Pinterest. Use the flag button to remove:

  • offensive jokes

  • puppies, raccoon, kittens, other cute and furry creatures

  • wedding dresses, cupcakes, flowers

  • the plain and ordinary

  • played memes

  • blatant advertising

  • spam

  • and excessive duplicate nails

Take a look at that list again. There is no consequence for excessive flagging. Flag to your hearts content. If you don't think it belongs on Manteresting, flag away. If there are too many of the  same nail being renailed over and over and over and over.....flag the clutter! If the nail is inappropriate, rude, racist, or simply rubs you the wrong way, flag it.

On the flip side, there is no consequence for being flagged either unless you are blatantly disregarding the TOS, which include harassing other members, in which case you will get a few warnings and then be banned from the site.

Flags are reviewed as often as we possibly can and we reinstate nails as we see fit. We take all of the points above and our own gut response into consideration when reinstating nails.

One last point is context. The homepage stream is linear. We know if you're on a site you like, you'll be nailing things one after another. If those nails are border-lining the TOS in any way or getting flagged one after another, each one that is published after another without a break pushes up against that line and we may be forced to take action. As our userbase grows, this becomes less of a problem but as we are only 3 weeks old, we don't always have a constant flow of nails from varying tastes or users. If we load the site and see a sea of nearly TOS breaking nails flooding the stream, that makes much more of an impact than if there is a boarder-line nail mixed in here and there.

We hope this helps clear some things up. We have so many features to roll out that you've requested and a bunch you haven't so the less time we have to spend on addressing this kind of issue, the better! Keep it awesome guys.

    You have made some really good points there. I checked on the net for additional information about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this website.

Hand has been lifted high, perspective glasses quickly closer shooting distance, I rely on the hands of what is there? Qiang Liu Yiyi hugged, and then to the ground a vicious lie!
