Me at the beginning of my Masto experience: "CW eye contact"? Why would that need a warning? w/e 🤷
Me, literally today: *realizing I avoid eye contact with selfies when I see them* .... oh.
@bort it's not like it ruins my day or anything, (I mean I suppose in theory it could? idk) It's more the realization makes it nice so I know I can scroll past them and not click on them now that I understand my problem?
it's one of those things where I couldn't understand why I started avoiding clicking mutuals' selfies and thought I was just an asshole until I saw one today and realized I was deliberately not looking at the eyes.
I'm more giving my perspective in what I hope was funny.
@bort @lapis The eye contact CW is for people who are made uncomfortable by that, I've heard it helps some people with autism. That's a good enough reason for me to add a CW; and yeah as lapis said it is nice to be able to avoid eye contact sometimes in general.
Also I'm pretty sure you could have it set such that content warnings are automatically shown.
