Placeholder thumbnails for adult content

Gaia Glee ·
When I got around to reading member feedback last night, I noted that several members were complaining about the adult image that appeared on the home page because it was not appropriate for such a thing to appear when trying to show Narrative off to colleagues or children. The response was that you can toggle 18+ content to be hidden in Settings. I would like to posit a different solution, as a concerned owner of Girls Gone Crypto, which will feature photos of female breasts. The entire...

Featured Thumbnails Cropped Terribly

E3 Productions ·
I have no idea where to post this so it will be seen by the Narrative developers but one thing that's driving me nuts is the inability to control how our thumbnails appear in the Featured section of Niche home pages and the Discover page. It's automatically cropping to the top of an image so for artwork we're seeing a lot of the tops of characters heads and nothing else. It looks like a mistake.

Video posts should pull a still frame from the video as a thumbnail image

Christina Gleason ·
Twitch and YouTube automatically pull a still image from videos to show as a thumbnail. Can we please have that here? I don't want to have to figure out the logistics for grabbing a screenshot, cropping it, and uploading it whenever I have video embedded in my posts if there's a systemic solution.

Guidebook link doesn't load thumbnail on telegram?

BloggerKrunal ·
I just shared Narrative Guidebook link on our telegram channel and it's not loading thumbnail image. I shared the other post which is working fine. So I just checked previously shared links of Guidebook on telegram and all are without thumbnails now. What's the catch?

Narrative links doesn't load thumbnails on Discord.

I've created Narrative Community Discord Server. https://discord.gg/JPaSXYG And I found that Narrative links doesn't load thumbnails like others site links on Discord. I've attached a screenshot of my Steemit and Narrative post links. I checked on other serves too but its not working.

I think a place holder is the answer. In fact i think it could even blur the image. I think it should be at the author's discretion for the following reasons. 1. not all +18 has graphic images. Someone could be writing with highly controversial written topics like say child abuse, and have a picture of a crying child. 2. If the author decides to post a graphic image and just give it a go, without blurring the image, I think he/she risks a reputation hit if the community buries it with thumbs...

A standardized placeholder is fair to everyone in my opinion. General placeholder A strong mosaic filter could also work Another option would be to ask the content uploader if the first image is explicit. If it is not as @Emily Barnett pointed out they should be able to post a general photo the child crying that all people can see and the content is rated 18+. In that case there would be a choice 1.) User needs to elect that images are explicit 2.) Failure to do so will result in a demerit...

Good thoughts, darlings. I think @freedom got more to the notion of what I was talking about. We do have entire niches, not just mine, dedicated to adult images. While we don't have a ruling concerning what exactly constitutes pornography, I have written a "suggestion" post for Girls Gone Crypto recommending against showing nudity below the waist, and my "suggestion" post for my erotica niches recommends against using explicit images at all. Like my user photo, one does not need to give away...

I am not suggesting that it is up to the content maker to figure out how to blur it. Obviously that needs to be coded into the platform, by @Brian Lenz and his team. I am suggesting that it is an OPTION TO CLICK on a blur box. I think it is highly unfair to automatically blur out the image, simply because it is +18 content as universal rule. Anyways I wrote a post on it just now with clear images as an example. I think it is very much worth reading, and it hopefully will open up a broader...

My suggestion in the thread over on narrative (beta) was for there to be an optional 'checkbox', like @Emily Barnett is suggesting above, during the creation of the post. This option would 'blur' the featured image of the post when it appears in content streams. I would also make this option on the post overridable by Moderators so they could catch anything before it even went live by accident.

Re: Pasting screenshots does not generate Post thumbnail

Brian Lenz ·
Hi @Bashar Abdullah , In order for the thumbnail to show, you will need to upload an image to the post. Embedding an image as you're describing (by pasting directly into the editor) will actually embed the contents of the image (base64 encoded) into the post, which isn't the same as an upload. Narrative only looks for uploaded images for the thumbnail. Hope that helps! Brian

@Brian Lenz Thanks for the clarification. For average user though, this might be common pitfall? Or is there no way around this?

I don't think pasting images is a very common use case, but it's something we'd definitely take a look at improving if it becomes a frequent problem for users. Thanks for the report and feedback!

We will take a look at it and see if this is something that we can fix.

Somehow it works but I couldn't find the reason why it reacts differently for different links. I've attached an image for 3 links which are reacting differently.

Some older links will probably be cached by Discord without images. New links should work however.

It's strange. Some of the new links works and some doesn't.

Thanks for heads up. You might be right about profile and post indexing. But today it happened with posts too. I already checked so I think there is nothing at admin end. I had reported to Discord support and sending it here too. So if it's anything at our end then we can fix it.

I'm afraid that you're going to have to ask Telegram. We don't know the answer. All of the other posts seem to work.

Seems that the post has become so large, with so many links and so many images that Telegram times out before it parses it all. Reddit does too.

Cloudflare is intervening from time to time. The icons not loading should be transient and clear up in a relatively short period of time that happens. Discord may cache the negative response though, so it might last however long they cache; this I do not know for sure. Either way it really shouldn't last very long at all when it happens.
