Title: FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions)
Post by Forum Administrator on September 13, 2002 at 1:15am
[edit]Note: Our forum now allows for open registration without approvals, which means you can register right away without having to wait for a confirmation e-mail. If for some reason we need to stop allowing this (perhaps temporarily), the following will apply.[/edit]
Question: I registered myself in this forum, but I never received a confirmation e-mail to let me know that I've been accepted. What should I do?

Answer: The most likely thing that happened was that you typed in your e-mail address incorrectly. That's a common error. Without a valid e-mail address, your password cannot be mailed to you. This is an automated process, so your information will be received by you as quickly as your e-mail server delivers your e-mail. In most cases, this is immediate, although with some e-mail servers it may take a few minutes, or even more if traffic on that e-mail server is heavy.

It's also possible that your e-mail account was full, and did not accept your confirmation and info.

Try signing up again, or click here to send me an e-mail (gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com) so that I can help. Please include your username and e-mail address so that I can retrieve your information. Thank you.

Hint: There is a possibility that you somehow missed our confirmation e-mail, in which case you are in our system. If so, you might as well try to log in with the username and password you used to register.

If you're in the system, but you've lost or fogotten your password, then go to our Password Reset page to reactivate your membership.


Title: Password reminder ...
Post by Bill, your Forum Administrator on October 18, 2002 at 11:30pm
Question: I lost my password. Can you send it to me again?

Answer: Your password is encrypted on our server, so we are not able to retrieve it.

However, all you need to do is to go to our Password Reset page to gain access to your profile.

Depending on how fast your e-mail server is, you should get this information in a timely fashion. Most e-mail servers these days deliver e-mail within a few minutes at the most.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at my gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com address, and I will be happy to help. In a worst case scenario, I can assign you a temporary password, and then you can access your profile to change it to a password of your choice.

Title: How can I color my text?
Post by Bill, your Forum Administrator on October 10, 2003 at 1:35pm
Question: How can I color my text?

Answer: There isn't a way to colorize your subject line, but you can easily have color in the body of your message. Like with this sentence, you can make the text in your message blue. Just remember to put the beginning and closing brackets around the text that you are modifying.

To add color, look for "Add YABBC tags:" above and to the left of your text message box. You will see two rows of icons. At the far right of these icons, you will see a check box with the default of "black" already listed. Click the check mark. A menu of colors will appear. Choose the color that you would like your text to be. You will see the following, but without any spaces as is illustrated here:

[ color=Blue ]Text in between these brackets will be blue[ /color ]

[ color=Red ]Text in between these brackets will be blue[ /color ]

Note: When you click a color of your choice, the code that is needed will most probably appear at the end of your message. Just cut and paste it where who want. You can also just type the color code in wherever you want it if it's easier for you to do this.

Reminder: If you log in with your username, you can always edit or delete any posts that you make, so don't worry about making any mistakes. They can always be corrected by you.

Title: How can I make my e-mail address clickable?
Post by Bill, your Forum Administrator on October 10, 2003 at 1:56pm
Question: How can I make my e-mail address clickable?

Answer: Click the email icon above the smilie faces ( ), and then place your e-mail address in between the opening and closing email code brackets as follows, but without any spaces in the e-mail coding:

When you type [ email ]gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com[ /email ] without the spaces, it will look like this: gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com.

If you want your name to appear instead of your e-mail address, but you still want this to be a clickable e-mail address, type [ email=gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com ]Webmaster Bill[ /email ] without the spaces, it will look like this: Webmaster Bill (gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com).

With the two examples above, remember to replace your own e-mail address and name (shown in red), and make sure that there are no spaces in the e-mail code.

Of course, for those of you who like to use the same e-mail address as the one that you want to list in your message, you can also make it readily available as an icon right below your name simply by editing your profile to allow it on-line. Like with my own name, the e-mail icon that you will see looks like this: (gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com)

Lastly, don't be shy about experimenting with your posts. If a mistake is made, you can always fix it. Look for that link in the upper right hand corner above your message. If you don't see it, that means that you haven't logged on. And don't forget that you can have this forum automatically e-mail you whenever a message has been added to a topic that you have made. Just click the box below your message that states, "Check this if you wish to be notified of replies to this topic."

Have fun!    ;D

Title: I sent you an e-mail, but I never got a reply!
Post by Bill, your Forum Administrator on October 20, 2003 at 5:13pm
Question: I sent you an e-mail, but I never got a reply. What's going on?

Answer: (Click here for a more detailed answer)  All e-mail is answered. so if you didn't get a reply, that means we either didn't receive your e-mail, or it somehow got lost in our junk mail folder.

For those of you who have sent us an e-mail through our main e-mail address of gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com and have not received a reply within a 24-48 period, I'm either behind in my e-mail, or your message may have inadvertently been put into our junk mail folder, and I didn't see it.

Please feel free to send another e-mail.

As a last resort, or even if you just want to get straight to the problem, just make a reply here. If you are a member of this chat forum (a free service), you can send me a private message by clicking here.


Title: Somebody just spammed me
Post by Bill, your Forum Administrator on October 21, 2003 at 12:42am
Question: I replied to a post by e-mailing the person who wrote it, and they spammed me.

Answer: We don't like spam, either, so please let us know about it so that we can handle it.

To report this to us, e-mail me at gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com. Thank you.

Title: Pop-ups. Spyware. What's going on?
Post by Bill, your Forum Administrator on October 22, 2003 at 5:42pm
Question: Do you utilize pop-ups, or engage in any spyware?

Answer: A big fat NO! We hate pop-ups and spyware. A great many of our sponsors, naturally, utilize pop-ups, so that's what's going on. Also, something called a "pop-under" is often activated from other sites, and then pops up as you close your browser.

Ironically, as of this date (Wednesday, October 22, 2003), the young men who authored the "pop-under" software just won a multi-million dollar judgement in court when a large company (X10 - see this article at MSNBC) tried to cheat them out of money. The three brothers were awarded $4.3 million - and stand to win more in punitive damages.

[edit]Sorry, but the MSN news article linked above doesn't seem to exist any longer[/edit]
But there is good news if you hate pop-ups and spyware like I do. You can easily take action to make your life a lot easier. Both Netscape and Internet Explorer now give you the option to block pop-ups. Go for it! I did, and surfing on the Net is much more pleasant.

As for spyware, it's generally pretty harmless, but if you want to clean your computer of it, try using a free software program called Spybot -Search and Destroy by by PepiMK Software. Keep in mind that you will have to run this program often since spyware is unavoidable, and will re-appear on your computer shortly after you have cleaned it.

You can also use the IObit Malware Fighter 2 Free program. As it states, it's free. ;)


Title: Unsolicited E-Mail. Is this from you?
Post by Bill Myers on August 1, 2004 at 6:24pm
Question: I received an unsolicited e-mail from you. Is this really from Great Feet?

... or ...

Question: I received an e-mail from Great Feet even though I haven't even sent you a message. Is this from Great Feet?

Answer: With the exception of email notifications (see below), this is NOT from us. We do NOT send e-mail to any visitor to our site without you sending us a message first, in which case we're simply sending you a reply. So if you aren't expecting anything from us, then ignore the e-mail.

Keep in mind that notifications from this forum are automated, but those will only be sent at your request. You can see details about your notifications here in our forum after you've logged on.

Below is an actual e-mail that was not sent out by us, even though it looks legitimate. Be careful!:



--- SPOOF E-MAIL BELOW ---

Title: Why does the forum keep logging me out?
Post by Bill Myers on September 14, 2004 at 12:08pm
Question: Whenever I sign in as a member of the forum, and then try to post a message, I keep getting logged out, and I'm reverted back to being a guest. What's up with that?

Answer: Chances are, you came to our chat forum in a frame (somebody else's window). For instance, if you click on a link to our forum while using Hotmail's e-mail service, Hotmail will direct you here, but will also keep you in their frame. Other companies do this same thing. But that's okay. Just click this link to break free into a new window.


Title: What about Yahoo's tracking policy?
Post by Bill Myers on December 30, 2004 at 3:58pm
Question: I've been told that Yahoo tracks where you go on the Internet if you access their Yahoo Groups. Is this true?

Answer: Yes, this is true, but you have the ability to opt out of this invasion of privacy if you so choose. Yahoo's tracking is surely harmless, and only meant to be a tool to better serve its users, but again, you have a choice to opt out if you want. For more details about this, read the following:


Quote:
Yahoo has been using something called "Web Beacons" to track Yahoo Group users around the Net to see what you're doing and where you are going - similar to cookies. Yahoo is recording every website and every group you visit. Take a look at their updated privacy statement: http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy.

About half-way down this page for English in the United States, in the section on cookies, you will see a link that says web beacons. Click on the phrase web beacons: https://info.yahoo.com/privacy/us/yahoo/webbeacons/.

That will bring you to a paragraph entitled, "Outside the Yahoo Network." In this section you'll see a little "click here to opt out" link that will let you "opt-out" of their new method of snooping. Once you have clicked that link, you are exempted.

Notice the "Success" message on the top of the next page. Be careful, because on that page there is a "Cancel Opt-out" button that, if clicked, will *undo* the opt-out.


Note: If you use different browsers as I do while surfing the Net, keep in mind that the option to "opt out" of Yahoo's tracking is specific with each browser. This would mean that if you have different people using your computer, and most probably using their own browser's settings based on their own preferences, you would need to opt out of each user's browser if you don't want Yahoo tracking all of the places you visit on the Net. This also applies even if you are the only person using your computer if, like me, you use both Internet Explorer and Netscape to surf the Net.

Title: My e-mail address has changed & I'm locked out!
Post by Bill Myers on March 19, 2005 at 10:32am
Question: My e-mail address has changed, and I'm locked out of my profile because I don't remember my password. Unfortunately, I can't use the Password Reset page because I no longer have access to my old e-mail address. What do I do now?

Answer: Just let me know what your old e-mail address is, and once I confirm that it's no longer a working address, I can input your new email address into your profile so that you can use it again.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com and I will be happy to help.


Title: I've forgotten my username, so I'm really stuck! How can I retrieve my username?
Post by Bill Myers on March 19, 2005 at 10:41am
Question: I've forgotten my username, so I'm really stuck! How can I retrieve my username?

Answer: You don't actually need your username to access your account. However, you can find out what it is by using your e-mail address on our Password Reset page.

Simply follow these instructions:

1. Click/tap Password Reset on the menu at the top of the chat forum page (or click/tap the highlighted text to the left).

2. Type your Email address in the box. You may have to scroll down a bit to see the box.

3. Type the Verification code that's provided for you in the box (but not with the first two or last two characters as instructed).

4. Click the send button.

5. Follow the instructions provided in the e-mail that will have been sent to you.

That's it.

Remember that the password reminder page is really meant to reset a password when it's been forgotten. But that's okay since you will then have complete access to your user control panel (known on-line as the "User CP" at the top of the page). It will be at this time that you can choose a password of your choice.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com and I will be happy to help.

Note: If you use AOL or Yahoo, unfortunately but both AOL and Yahoo email servers do not deliver all email that is sent to you. This includes registration information that is automatically sent from forums. But there's no need to be overly concerned. You can simply contact Bill at gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com to get help, and he'll get you going again in a timely fashion.


Title: How do I submit photos to you?
Post by Bill Myers on June 17, 2005 at 11:37am
Question: How do I submit photos to you?

Answer: Just go to our Great Feet Movie/Photo/Story Submission Form here, and follow the instructions.

You can read more about this by clicking our question and answer section here about it.

Keep in mind that all photo submissions are assumed to be anonymous, so if you want a name or an e-mail included for direct feedback, just let me know. Otherwise your photos will remain anonymous, and you can receive feedback here in this section of our forum.

All photo submissions will receive a confirmation message from me directly, usually no later than 12-72 hours, so if you do not receive a reply within that time frame, please let me know.

Title: AOL & Hotmail users - Special problems
Post by Bill Myers on June 23, 2005 at 12:26am
If you use AOL or Hotmail as your official e-mail contact to access our chat forum, whether you keep it hidden from the public or not, you may very well have problems receiving automated replies from this forum when you request them.

Confirmation messages from us to let you know we've received your photos may get bounced as well. Both AOL and Hotmail are often too aggressive in their spam controls, and therefore bounce legitimate messages.

Hint: AOL users, check your spam folder. Hotmail users, check your junk folder. Keep in mind that a bounced message may not show. As such, you may want to try the following:



AOL Users:

1. Check your spam settings.

2. If needed, include gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com in your contact list.



Hotmail Users:

1. Click Options

2. Click More options

3. Click Safe and blocked senders

4. Click Safe senders

5. In the Sender or domain to mark as safe text box, type gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com and then click the Add to list button. We should now be inlcuded in your Safe senders and domains text box.

Whenever someone signs up to join our free chat forum, or whenever a person requests that their password be resent to them, an automated reply is immediately generated, and sent by our e-mail server. Both AOL and Hotmail do not always handle these requests properly. Simply put, this means that our automated reply will not be received by you.

If the information above doesn't help, send an e-mail to Bill at gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com and further help will be attempted.

P.S. Keep in mind that with a good working e-mail address, even if you choose to use the default setting of keeping your address hidden from the public, you will of course be able to immediately obtain your password information automatically 24/7. You will also have no problems using our chat forum's automated notification service to let you know when new posts are made to a topic of interest to you.

Note: Because we are a popular site with a lot of traffic, you may find that our e-mail address is being phished. Simply put, this means that it may appear we have sent you a message when in fact we have not. This is usually pretty obvious.

Keep in mind that we never send unsolicited messages. Not for marketing purposes. Not for anything. The only time you will be getting a message from us will be as follows:

1. Confirmation messages will be sent when you send photos, video clips, or stories to our site.

2. A reply will be sent to you if you send us a message.

3.  You will receive an automated message whenever you request your user name and/or your password.

4. Whenever you choose to be notified of new posts in our chat forum, you will receive automated messages if you edit your control panel settings (User CP) to do this.

So if you are not expecting a message from us, then you can be certain that the message you see with our address is spam. Feel free to ignore it. In fact, we urge you to ignore it.


Title: How do I stop receiving notifications?
Post by Bill Myers on March 22, 2006 at 4:32pm
Question: How do I stop receiving notifications about new posts?

Answer: First log in to the chat forum. Once you are logged in, click the Notification link at the top of the page, which will pull up the list of topics that you have on file to be notified once a new post has been made. Look for the topic that you no longer want to be notified of, check the box, and then click Update Notifications.

Another way to do this is to go directly to the topic in question, and click the Notify of replies link. Yes or No options will be available to you.

That's it.  ;)

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com and I will be happy to help.

Title: How do I stop automatic typing in my address bar?
Post by Bill Myers on April 18, 2006 at 12:48pm
Question: How do I stop automatic typing in my address bar?

Answer:

1. Click start ... probably in the lower left hand corner of your screen.

2. Click Control Panel.

3. Double-click Internet Options.

4. Click Content.

5. Click Auto Complete ....

6. Uncheck the box that says Web addresses.

That should do it. You'll still have to clear your history from time to time, or every time to keep our site out of the list of sites that have been visited.

It should be noted that if you use another browser such as Firefox or Netscape, you'll probably need to clear your history by using the tools in the respective browser that you use.

Title: How can I delete this site from my history bar?
Post by Bill Myers on April 18, 2006 at 12:50pm
Question: How can I delete this site from my history bar?

Answer:

1. Click start ... probably in the lower left hand corner of your screen.

2. Click Control Panel.

3. Double-click Internet Options.

4. Click General.

5. Click Clear History.

Keep in mind, too, that even if you clear your history, you might want to adjust what is called AutoComplete. Click here for details, or just read the previous post.

It should be noted that if you use another browser such as Firefox or Netscape, you'll probably need to clear your history by using the tools in the respective browser that you use.

Title: Can I search for a contributor's photos?
Post by Bill Myers on December 26, 2006 at 12:14pm
Question: Can I search for a particular contributor's photos?

Answer: Yes. Just go to our site's search engine page, and take it from there. That page is located at the following address:

http://www.greatfeet.com/search/

Title: How can I shorten a long url address?
Post by Webmaster Bill on June 12, 2009 at 8:15am
Question: Is there a way to shorten the long url's in the chat forum, or anywhere else for that matter?

Answer: Yes. Go to goo.gl and you will see how a long url can be compressed.

[edit]From Google:

Quote:
"Starting March 30, 2018, we will be turning down support for goo.gl URL shortener. From April 13, 2018 only existing users will be able to create short links on the goo.gl console. You will be able to view your analytics data and download your short link information in csv format for up to one year, until March 30, 2019, when we will discontinue goo.gl. Previously created links will continue to redirect to their intended destination. Please see this blog post for more details."

"If you are looking to create new short links, we recommend you check out popular services like Bitly and Ow.ly as an alternative."

Fore more details, click/tap this link.[/edit]

Previous Example, which should be the same with the two links listed above:

The chat forum profile for Water Goddess is at the following address:

http://www.greatfeet.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?action=viewprofile;username=watergoddess

The address below is the shortened version:

goo.gl/HZktU

The new URL is a whopping 74 characters shorter!


Title: How did Great Feet get started?
Post by Webmaster Bill on July 5, 2009 at 10:13am
Question: How did Great Feet get started?

Answer:

Back in the early years of the Internet exploding around us (about 1996-97), those were the days when a core group of us chatted things up on a BBS (Bulletin Board System), and exchanged foot fetish material via e-mail (with 16 phone lines in one guy's apartment). That group was into bondage fun as well as other adult activities such as swinging, etc.

But those of us with a foot fetish decided to centralize things by posting our material on a personal web page of mine. Much to our surprise, however, the visitors to our site grew so rapidly that it overwhelmed the personal page I used, which adversely affected my IP (Internet Provider). Luckily, they were cool about it, so they kind of looked the other way.

Still, it wasn't fair to tax their server so heavily, so I voluntarily moved over to a shared server when I got our domain. Even then, we overloaded various shared servers. Our solution back then was to reference all of our contributions on our site, but have them hosted on a number of different contributors' sites, most of which were hosted by Geocities (subsequently redirecting to Yahoo's eCommerce platforms, and then shuttered without a landing page of its own).

Of course, being that our site was classified as "adult" and often displayed nudity, Geocities routinely deleted the accounts of our contributors, which ended up causing a lot of problems to manage. Coincidentally, Geocities (as referenced above), was taken over by Yahoo some time ago. In the United States it was shut down for good on October 26, 2009.

In any case, Geocities was closing down sites so quickly, and in such large numbers, it just didn't make sense anymore for me to manage all of the images the way I was with so many different webmasters. That's when I decided to host all of our contributors' foot fetish material myself.

For a while, I did this on shared servers, but in every instance our site overwhelmed the server we were on, so it caused problems. I eventually had to put the site on our own server. Even then, web hosts often had difficulty keeping the site on-line without any downtime. It took a while before I found a company that could handle all of our site's activities. I've been with them since May of 2003, so hopefully they'll keep going strong.

Whether our site closes down in the near future, or it continues with other owners and operators indefinitely, I take pride in the fact that this endeavor of mine was one of the first to sustain itself with online ads; one of the earliest pioneers of its kind to test, and grow what's known as Ecommerce.




Title: How can I upload videos (photo upload help as well)?
Post by Webmaster Bill on May 13, 2016 at 2:49pm
Question: Because your Great Feet Movie/Photo/Story Submission Form® is really only meant to upload photos, how can I upload videos to your site (or photos another way)?

Answer: Contributors have been using their Dropbox account, which can be opened for free if you don't already have one. Other contributors have provided temporary shared links on their Google Drive, which is also free.

That means after photos/videos are uploaded to your own account/page, links to them can be emailed to my gfwebmaster@greatfeet.com address. Unless otherwise declared, or if you've already contributed with prior instructions, all contributions will be considered anonymous.

Other options:

Imagebam (photos)

ImgBox (photos)

ImageTwist (photos & videos)

ImageVenue (photos & videos)

postimages (photos)

sendvid (videos)

You get the idea. 8-)

Those are just eight examples. :thumbsup


Title: How do I post a YouTube Video?
Post by Webmaster Bill on May 31, 2016 at 10:22am
Question: How do I post a YouTube Video?

Answer:

1. Copy the url of the YouTube video you want to showcase. This will show in the address bar.

      Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGNouMFr070

2. In between the Insert Media tag, shown here , paste the url without the s on the end (https).

      Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGNouMFr070

That's it! ;)

*********************************************************

Additional Options:

Additional Option 1. Adding &hd=1 at the end of the video's url will enable the video to play in high definition.

      Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGNouMFr070&hd=1

Additional Option 2. Adding width=600 after the 1st media tag will widen your video to the width of your choice. As such, the 1st media tag in its entirity would be [media width=600] to enable the video width you see below.

Hint: Click/tap the icon above for this post to see the actual coding that enables the YouTube video that's shown below.

Note: "Live Preview" won't show the proper result. However, "Preview" will.  ;)

This is an actual example/result of the instructions above:

[media width=600]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGNouMFr070&hd=1[/media]

Note: To see this video in its largest size, click/tap the little
YouTube icon above to see it in a new window on YouTube.  ;)

Title: How do I download/save a video to my computer?
Post by Webmaster Bill on May 31, 2016 at 1:48pm
Question: How do I download/save a video to my computer? The instructions below should work with the 4 browsers listed below.

Answer (using Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Windows 10 Microsoft Edge):

1. Open any of the browsers listed above.

     1a. To download the Firefox browser for free, click/tap here.

     1c. To download the Internet Explorer browser for free, click/tap here.

     1d. To download the Windows 10 Microsoft Edge browser for free, click/tap here.

2. Click a video link on our site (such as this video link).

3. In Firefox, Google Chrome, and Windows 10 Microsoft Edge, the video should automatically play in a new window. To download/save it, right-click your mouse to use whatever "Save Video As ..." version comes up with any of the browsers.

In Internet Explorer, a pop-up should appear that gives you the options to play the video or save it.


Title: How does the "Send to a Friend" option work?
Post by Webmaster Bill on August 22, 2017 at 9:45am
Question: How does the option work?

Answer: It's actually pretty self-explanatory. To find the active icon shown in this post, go to either the top or bottom of the various topics on any given page, and you'll see it listed along with other options located in the dark blue box.

Click/tap the icon, and you'll be given two options. One option is to use your default email program, which will automatically load. The other option is to use the email program of this forum.

If you're unsure about this, give it a try using your own email address as the recipient so that you can see firsthand how it works without bothering anybody else.

Title: Whatever happened to tumblr?
Post by Webmaster Bill on December 30, 2018 at 7:15am
Question: Whatever happened to tumblr?

Answer: The tumblr site still exists, but it no longer allows adult content.


Quote:
Adult content

Is adult content allowed on Tumblr?

Adult content is not allowed on Tumblr, regardless of how old you are. You can read more about what kinds of content are not allowed on Tumblr in our Community Guidelines. If you spot a post that you don’t think belongs on Tumblr, period, you can report it: From the dashboard or in search results, tap or click the share menu (paper airplane) at the bottom of the post, and hit "Report."

What is "adult content?"

Adult content primarily includes photos, videos, or GIFs that show real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples, and any content—including photos, videos, GIFs and illustrations—that depicts sex acts.

What is permitted?

Examples of exceptions that are permitted are exposed female-presenting nipples in connection with breastfeeding, birth or after-birth moments, and health-related situations, such as post-mastectomy or gender confirmation surgery. Written content such as erotica, nudity related to political or newsworthy speech, and nudity found in art, such as sculptures and illustrations, are also stuff that can be freely posted on Tumblr.

What will happen to my adult content already on Tumblr?

We will send out email notices to members of the Tumblr community whose content has been flagged as adult. If your post has been flagged as adult, it will be reverted to a private setting viewable only by you. If you want to learn more about how to see those posts, see this help article.

As always, please make sure the email associated with your Tumblr account is one you use regularly. It’s how we get in touch when we need you!

My content was flagged as adult, but I don't think it should be. What should I do?

What if my blog (not to be confused with posts) was marked as “explicit” before December 17, 2018?

Blogs that have been either self-flagged or flagged by us as “explicit” per our old policy and before December 17, 2018 will still be overlaid with a content filter when viewing these blogs directly. While some of the content on these blogs may now be in violation of our policies and will be actioned accordingly, the blog owners may choose to post content that is within our policies in the future, so we’d like to provide that option. Users under 18 will still not be allowed to click through to see the content of these blogs. The avatars and headers for these blogs will also be reverted to the default settings. Additionally, posts from these blogs are kept out of search results.

You can check and see if your blog is marked as explicit per our old policy in your visibility settings. If you think your blog has been erroneously marked as explicit, learn how to appeal here.
