Question Do we need a new icon?

Hi,

Due to something I just opened in Critique Discussions, I'm wondering if we need a new icon for 'gory/bloody/violent/graphic' stuff?

Eileen kindly added the 'butt' icon to the post in question, but I feel we should differentiate between these two adult kinds of posts. Personally I don't mind erotic work, but I don't want to see 'bloody' stuff. So it would be great to know which it is before I open it...

Helen

Hey Helen, we have this in Australia now.

We buy the mag in fortnightly parts. I got my first copy yesterday.
BTW that UK mag you mentioned with the waterpencil was in the shop last month but was too expensive. $10 I think.

Te, either I'm going mad (which is highly likely) or you had this conversation with someone else!
Good site though!

Yes I think we do. I don't care for that sort of stuff either.

Yes, I think we need a new icon for violent,bloody and graphic stuff, as I don`t want to open something like that.

It's not at all often that we have violent material posted. So no, i don't think we need another icon. I haven't seen the piece in question so i guess i oughtta look before commenting further.

OK now that i've looked, i can see where that might be disturbing to some people. The title does say 'graphic'. Was that added after the fact? It should be enough IMO.

The title originally read simply The End Of Everything, with no icon.

But I don't want to make a big deal about this particular piece, I just see a new icon as a good idea and wondered if anyone else did. That's all!

Nod, Cheryl, I added that after the fact.

Although that type of thing doesn't really bother *me*, I'm all for having a new icon. It really can't hurt to have it, isn't censorship of any kind or anything like that, and is more like a common courtesy to those who don't wish to view that type of work.

Just my 2 cents.
