Dumb blonde jokes
Because it is a stereotype and it can offend people with blonde hair. Having blonde hair has nothing to do with intelligence.

Mannequins
Automatonophobia can be loosely defined as the fear of wax figures, mannequins, humanoid robots, audio-animatronics, or other figures designed to represent humans. Only rarely does the fear become a full-blown phobia, but it is relatively common to experience hesitation or nervousness when confronting these figures.

!! Please, no more joke requests
I'm not going to act like I didn't smile at "does Sean Bean die" or "does someone drink milk," but... I can't help but feel like it's inappropriate to submit jokey requests here. :( It occurred to me recently that people might think my own request ("does a cat scream in pain") may be taken as a joke, and that really freaked me out. :( It's my biggest trigger. There are other specific requests I've seen on here (vaporization, quicksand, etc), and I worry that those will be interpreted as jokes, too. I know how much it sucks to have an extremely niche trigger... No one should have to worry that they're going to be laughed at for it. I promise I'm not saying anyone who did this is bad and should feel bad. Again, I thought some of the joke submissions were funny myself! But please do consider the points I've made here. :( Thank you!

"Emo" Jokes
As someone who has been called "emo" constantly without my consent, it triggers me when I hear a joke about someone being emo. Please consider this as a category.

"Sexual assault on men is a joke"
Women (often perceived as "hot") assault a man sexually for laughs. A man rapes another man and it's for laughs. Prison gay rape jokes like the famous "soap drop". Those are examples I see in many movies and shows. Note this is about being played for laughs. I don't talk about serious rape/assault themes.

(not a category) add reason options when reporting suggestion
Explaining why you are reporting a suggestion seems very important, e.g. in the case of reporting a suggestion that has already been suggested, or one that is covered by an existing category. The generic "report" implies that there is something wrong with the contents of the suggestion itself. This could be accomplished by either giving two options (report as spam/report as duplicate), or just by adding an open text field to the report for users to add their own information.

(not a category) add timestamping and live view
This is a major feature request for the mobile app and I realize that, but I personally believe it would do a lot of good! Adding the ability to, when voting for a trigger, include the exact times that trigger occers. Then ontop of this, having an actual live view, which would be a progress bar set to the length of the entire media in question, which visually shows exactly when triggers occer. It could then also be synced with said media and run in the background (say in the case of a movie, press play on both at the same time) and vibrate as a warning a few seconds before the trigger occers. Settings would allow you to select which triggers vibrate/show in the live view so it's always relevant to the user. This would also allow for a "screening mode" where users could play media in sync with the app and have a button that can be pressed any time a trigger occers, which would then open up a menu to select the specific trigger/s. Once the triggering portion has ended that can be marked with another button press, at which point a comment could be optionally added and then finally the report can be added to that particular live feed for everyone with the specific timestamps for start and end saved. The ability for people to edit their own timestamped reports is important incase mistakes were made or adjustments become needed, and other people should be able to suggest edits to things other people submitted in the event they are inaccurate, a voting system could then be used to have the edits published for everyone, and anyone who votes yes would have the edits applied locally. Again I do understand how much of an undertaking this would be, it would be a major update in no uncertain terms. That being said I do hope this suggestion is at the very least considered as I genuinely believe this would do a lot of good for a lot of people. There is presently no dedicated way of reporting when a trigger occers, and although people will write timestamps manually in the comments from time to time, there is still no dedicated way to view that information. I believe making this entire process an integral part of DDD would benefit many greatly.

(not a category) allow paragraph breaks in comments
Many comments that list triggering moments appear as one big wall of text with no line breaks or paragraph breaks. This makes these comments very difficult to read, especially for people with visual impairment, dyslexia, or ADHD.

(Not a category) Censor the r-slur in the “Is r***** used as a slur?” category and rephrase it as “Is the r-slur used?”
Seeing the r-slur uncensored in any context can be pretty jarring to some, myself included. Since this site is designed with the purpose of helping others avoid triggering content, having a category with an uncensored slur defeats its purpose. Please fix this.

(Not a category) Consider all intended consequences of suggestions before adding them
Some subjects might trigger people but as would the inclusion of them on this site, dor the sake of objectivity I’ll go with “queer characters” and “non cis-gender characters.” The latter doesn’t require explanation, but the “queer” trigger is tricky to navigate. I hope the person who wrote it gets the best outcome to their situation and I don’t want them to get outed, nor do I want them to feel like they did any wrong by suggesting their trigger. That being said, I can’t help but imagine people using those categories to maliciously avoid content that depicts LGBT+ and being cruel in their comments. I don’t know what to suggest other than thinking through what might happen if your category gets accepted or use somewhere else to track them. It’s hard to trigger me but I cried upon thinking about this, I can’t be the only one who would get the wrong idea seeing that as a first impression of this site. This is the hardest thing I’ve had to write about, I don’t want to sound insensitive.

(Not a category) Double check for repeats
Sometimes movies/shows/books tend to be added twice due to simple titles, or spelling mistakes. For example, Us (2019) has been added twice. The first is "Us" (2019), and the second is "Us (2019)" (2019). The same applies to "Nope" (2022) vs "Nope 2022" (2022), "Frozen II" vs "Frozen 2", "My Hero Academia: World Heroes Mission" vs "My Hero Academia: World Heros' Mission", "My Hero Academia Make It! Do-or-Die Survival Training" vs "My Hero Academia: Make It! Do-or-Die Survival Training" (the difference being the ":"), "Centaurworld" has been added twice, one with the year "2021" specified and the other is the same but without the specification, Arcane being added multiple times under "movie" and "tv show" with different titles all around, etc.

(not a category) separate tab for app/site feature requests
I see a lot of people (and now myself included) using this area as a place to voice feature requests, and that's all well and good, but I feel like this would be better serviced by a tab of its own (so you go to requests, then can switch between trigger/feature at the top of the app/page

(Not a Category) The ability to un-vote for a category.
Some people may vote for a category, but then see that there's another similar category that explains it a lot better than the previous one. Some people may have also thought about it more and changed their mind, or voted on accident.

A bug dies
If a bug is shown squashed or electrocuted, it's not a great sight, whether you like or hate bugs. It's gross and could take away from scenes if someone is sensitive to this.

A character being called a hypochondriac
As someone with a chronic illness, being called a hypochondriac is seriously hurtful. As if living in constant pain isn't hard enough, being told it's "all in your head" or that it's made up can be damaging both to the character and the person watching.
