Local Trigger Word Blacklist
So i had an idea for an accessibility feature:
The user would be able to add a list of words that might trigger them within the accessibility account settings menu.
The client would then use this list to locally either spoiler or mark words within messages with a trigger warning locally.
This way other users aren't affected by it, a wider range of trauma triggers can be covered and it works platform wide for the user.
The reason i submit this request is because i personally as a server owner ran into a complicated call on a slur being used by a member in reference to themselves. Claiming they are reclaiming it, now another community is triggered by it and sent complaints regarding it.
The ideal UI would be like this:
DEFAULT STATE: The message is grayed out and says “This message is blocked by your word list”. There is a “peek button” on the right (represented by an 👁 icon). Pressing it will transition into PEEK STATE.
PEEK STATE: The message expands downward and shows the word or words blocked. The “peek button” changes into a “hide button” that reverts to DEFAULT STATE. Below that and next to the blocked words list is a button that shows the original message in the SHOW STATE.
SHOW STATE: The original message is shown in its entirety, with a small button or toolbar that allows the user to revert to DEFAULT STATE.1
