    Inappropriate Content Warning


    The following message appeared on some of my sounds:
    "Warning: this sound may be inappropriate for some users! [Dismiss]"

    1: https://freesound.org/people/KAMARIN/sounds/418688/
    2: https://freesound.org/people/KAMARIN/sounds/417934/
    3: https://freesound.org/people/KAMARIN/sounds/397233/
    4: https://freesound.org/people/KAMARIN/sounds/397232/

    I'm 100% sure, that these sounds are completely appropriate for any user group, in fact sounds 1 and 2 are recordings of actual toys for babies...
    Could someone please explain to me what the heck is going on? tongue

    Thank you and cheers!

    With great sound comes great responsibility...

    When editing the description of your sounds, there is a tickbox just below the description box that says "The sound contains explicit content" - is that ticked?

    If so, you can untick it and hit "submit" to remove the content warning.

    As to why that's there in the first place, I'm not too sure: it could have been a small, accidental error when writing the description of your sound; it could have been an error during moderation (since the tickbox for marking a user's sound as explicit is quite easy to accidentally tick); or it could be a bug in the code (though I have not yet seen this happen elsewhere - but maybe this thread will encourage others with a similar problem to say something!)

    Hope that helps!

    I've seen this on at least two obviously innocuous sounds in the past few weeks, one was something like a music box, I seem to recall. Must be a gub. smile Maybe at some future point we can have a setting in our accounts that allows us to bypass the "inappropriate" content warning.

    Trouble runs, far away, in the night.

    I think you can!

    Hah, I've done that already, must have been drunk at the time. No wonder I'm not seeing the warnings anymore.

    OMG... It seems, that the fault is mine.
    Consider this topic closed!

    Thank you all!

    edit:
    "The sound contains explicit content: (to remove this flag, please send a support request)"
    Can't remove the check mark... grin

    I gave you a hand and unchecked them wink

    We assume that once you flag a sound you shouldn't be able to change it back...

    Don't click the checkmark next time you describe a sound wink
