Funny what kind of costumized filters will pop up. one or two are up already. and i have to say, i didn’t expect the mega-filler this early dt ;);)

Does the ability to share filters with other users now mean that our filters are public and anyone can access and use them, even without the user knowing?

huh another Pegasus other then me? cool! but anyway Yeah but Honestly I was a little confused on how it worked and just stuck with what was already filterd sense it was the stuff I would have filterd anyway.
 
I’m also have a thing about keeping my stuff in the way it is or I had it, you know, OCD “Everything must stay in order!” I hate my OCD so bad.

No, a filter is only publicly visible to other users if you specifically check the box to make it so when you create a new filter. The legacy filter constructed from your old settings is not visible to others, in case that was worrying you.

How about things that (at least used to) get blocked by default, like spoilers for individual episodes? Will they still get blocked if we use a custom list, or do we have to add them ourselves?
Right now you’d have to maintain that in the custom list, yes.
One thing I’ve considered is having an inheritance property - basically have a way for filters to inherit the tags of a ‘parent’ filter - but this is a quite complex proposition.
 
Hey Clover. Why not introduce “dynamic” tags for the episode-spoiler problem? Like a tag for the filter list that says “Current Spoilers” (or something amongst the lines) that basically does the same thing as the auto-spoilers did before. Users could just add that tag to their filters and automatically get protection against all current spoilers and those who wish to see all “spoilers” just don’t need to add it to their filter.  
Those could be marked in pink instead of the current green for the tags to mark their special properties or something.
 
You could kind of think of those tags like as a “specified inheritance” that the user can choose himself.

Just a minor suggestion - there should be a way to delete filters. I can’t see an obvious way to delete an unwanted personal filter set.

I’m still waiting for someone that makes a filter that only shows explicit images. I would make one myself but I don’t want to be associated with that since I actually fave more SFW than porn.
 
Still, it’s gonna happen. Some brave soul shall do just that.

I have no problems except for the fact that now the user bar is freakin long. Nothing but a few drop bars should fix. That and the fact that my filters were mixed and matched.

@Itsthinking
 
No, I mean as a public filter people can use. I don’t want that filter because I like to see all the art. The only tag I have hidden if foalcon and I spoiler seizure stuff. I don’t want to make a filter I’m not going to use.

That was an oversight, we’re going to put in the button to delete filters as soon as Clover’s got a moment to sort it out.

Actually, can someone answer me? If we make a public filter do we have to use it? Like, if I make a filter setting people can use, if they want to, am I stuck using those filter settings?
 
Sorry if it’s a dumb question.

We’re also improving the menu, and we’ve just fixed all the imported filters - you may want to double check to confirm this.

We need a way to get rid of existing ones. I tried updating my legacy one and a new one got saved, I guess because I tried renaming it. Needless to say, one of them will forever be kind of pointless.
 
Other than that, very nice feature thing there, guys.

You can have a whole bunch of filters, you only use one at a time. Any filters that you have public are technically maintained by you but you’re not under any obligation to actually use them yourself and even then you can change them at will, you’re not stuck with the settings (whatever they are).
