PSA for future "shock images" Warpcast will nerf folks for explicit images. It's not deterministic, our judgement. This isn't a court. - I'll ask the user to delete the cast - If they don't, I'll nerf on Warpcast To be clear: the cast exists at the protocol. Similar to websites, Google doesn't have to index you.
More on nerfs here: https://warpcast.notion.site/Nerfs-3226885de1554031b2902ac2d3f9b15c I also suspect Warpcast will eventually have automatic NSFW categorization for images.
will you nerf the cast or the user?
So, SpankCaster could still use the protocol, right?
Can you add an image detection AI to automatically blur suspected NSFW content and warn the users that the image might contain inappropriate stuff?(ofcourse give the users an option to unblur it for themselves).That would be nice.
mb for the pic was just testing something out I will say tho this furthers my point that clients >> protocols
there you go alternative client developers, here is a real market Warpcast is not willing to serve explicitly
thanks dan 💜
I find this to be an interesting datapoint about culture. Bluesky had to deal with this within a month (ish) of users having invites. Farcaster made it pretty far with just "stern warnings" from @dwr. (I say this with no knowledge of what the 🚾 team is dealing with behind the scenes.)
the year is 2025. the Alliance of Eyebleach has declared all-out war on the Rule34 Confederation.
To the extent you want to answer, how much of this decision is due to Apple's itchy trigger finger?
Much appreciated, Dan. Sincerely. This is a kindness for those of us who wish to keep our feeds completely free of such images.
Is this in response to something?
“Google doesn’t have to index you”
Not picking a fight. Genuinely curious. (And ❤️ debate) If users have option to unfollow, hide, mute, block, why does client need to nerf? So long as it’s not harming or threatening another person, why take such a heavy hand? I’m not saying you are wrong, just trying to understand your logic and policy.
Apple is the final boss in the decentralization game
Im 12 what are shock images? 😳
I’ve only posted a couple shirtless selfies Dan, a DM would have sufficed
Apple testers on 🚾 watching @briang’s cast like 👀
Much appreciated. 🤝
Thanks for doing this.
Would be great to have the nerf service as a public good (or at least a public ally accessible service) for all client developers. I’ve been thinking about that a lot - Livepeer can offer AI based tagging for NSFW videos, and clients can decide what to do.
> The cast exists at the protocol 👌
Fully understand the need for this (noone wants to be surprised with nasty shit like extreme violence on their feed), but once it comes to censorship we need super clear and transparent rules. It’s a slippery slope and easily opens doors to subjective/biased censorship of different opinions
I assume we're using the US definition of "explicit" here? What kind of shock image was posted?
Everyone who builds has the right to do what they want with that platform You go girl (or equivalent saying) If ppl want un encumbered casting let them move to another platform. The best win when the ppl vote with their attention
This is actually a great way to incentivize decentralizing the client-base!
So basically what you are saying here is that the promise of a censorship resistant platform doesn’t resist common sense and political correctness?
Caster gonna love this dic…. *delete cast*
There are explicit images here? 👀
This is something we can prioritise in the mobile SDK for developers to integrate AI models. The problem is also the workforce and humans involved in tagging, workers at the companies providing this as a service to TikTok and Twitter are literally unionising and speaking up
I knew I shouldn't have uploaded this... https://warpcast.com/sagar/0xe80d02
This is the future
Clean, decisive leadership, good job. Bluesky is in the midst of a messier one.
