I like the idea of having a restricted mode so that parents don’t freak out and don’t have to be afraid of their children hearing naughty big-boy language. It’s good for the parents, it’s good for the kids, yadda yadda. With a restricted mode, there wouldn’t have to be age restriction for using the app (which plenty of little kids would find a way around anyway), just an optional restriction for seeing certain content.
However, what would a mature mode/restricted mode feature entail for an artist that uses profane language and themes? Would the artist have to tag their entire account as mature if a few of their videos use mature themes/language, or would they have the option to just mark those individual videos as mature?
I recommend that artists have the option to tag their individual videos as restricted. That way, kids and people who choose to see only family-friendly content can still see the creator’s other videos that aren’t restricted. If the whole account is restricted, audiences could miss out on some really good stuff. Any word on what the developers are planning on doing when it comes to restricted mode/content?
