Content Filtering

An Idea

I'm not sure if someone already had this idea or if this is already a thing I haven't seen any options regarding content filtering in the user settings, but I would like to see an option for content filtering. You type in a tag or select an attribute from a category, or type in a keyword and it blocks games/submissions with those attributes. If you do not like seeing certain types of content this would be a good way to filter them out.

I see this as a good way to filter out NSFW content as well, considering underage users need parental consent to join  so they shouldn't be able to see NSFW content until the posted age limit has been passed. I know that the thumbnails for them are already blurred but it doesn't change that anybody under the posted age limit can still view it. Also some folks may be sensitive to other types of content and would rather just see the things that they like without randomly stumbling upon undesirable content the same way you see bad videos in your recommendations on YouTube.


EDIT: I also want to suggest that if content filtering becomes a thing it should remain private and only you, the owner of your GB account, can change and see your content filtering settings.

    We have a lot of filters in different sections - what specific filter do you want added and to what section? Just NSFW? I think we already have this filter.
