Explicit Content Filter - Dealing With False Positives
The explicit content filter has made using discord rather difficult for me. I get false positives fairly often, and the frustrating part is that I can't do anything about it. Once a message is blocked, it's blocked.
Maybe, instead of deleting the message outright, marking the message as nsfw could work? That would let whoever is supposed to receive it choose whether or not they want to view the image. That way, there's at least an option for it to get through.
Whatever the solution may be, I would definitely like to see see something done, as the filter deleting perfectly sfw images for no apparent reason has reduced discord's usability for me and it's getting quite frustrating.
I run a Sandman Discord Server and made the mistake of setting the server as a "community." Now whenever I try to post images of the comic book character from when he was held captive (and yes, naked) the bot thinks it's explicit content. Nothing is shown. His anatomy is always hidden in shadows or the image is above his waist. Have I mentioned it's a server for a comic book character and his captivity is in the very first issue?1
Garlic. Fake photos of garlic from a text-to-image generator. This could not make it past your filter. Fix your shit.1
"Our most accurate bot", more likely the most dumbest bot... It's blocking this gif, there is no body parts, there isn't even a human in the gif...1
Sent here by Discord Support... really sad that after *4* years this is STILL an issue. I guess dad jokes and knees are considered explicit content???
From Support: "To clarify, if the explicit media content filter is enabled, any media files the system deems inappropriate will be flagged and therefore, preventing them to be uploaded. Sadly, we do not have any control over what the system deems to be inappropriate." is the worst response I think I've ever seen.1
how often does this happen that discord content filter detects false positive? 1 out of 10? 1 out of 100? 1000 ?
have things improved over the time, i.e has content filter quality got better for the lasts months?
any experience with "bug reporting" via https://support.discord.com/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=360006586013
is discord able to react on such bugreports when you submit a link to media content which is detected as false positive and do they fix that ?
