(Content warnings) A user can specify the types of content they want to avoid in their reading preferences survey

Wanting to offer such a feature is the reason we have content warnings in the app in the first place!

We'll use this information to further personalise/improve our recommendations

It would be great if when specifying the content warnings, there would be a "block" option (don't recommend me books tagged with this) and a "warn" option. The warn option would still show me books with that type of content but with a red flag icon indicating it has one of my flagged warning types. The red flag icon would link directly to the content warnings.

bookcasey This was one of the ideas I had some years back! I also imagine that all books around the app, outside of the recommendations section, would have some indicator of any content warning that you'd marked at all.

@biblioseph — yes, we plan on having a "things you don't like to read about" section in the survey and haven't yet decided whether we will combine that with the content warnings or keep it separate. When we get to it, we'll see what makes sense.

@bekahmccue — one of our ideas is around being able to explain your sensitivity to each type of content! That might not be the first iteration though!

This would be VERY helpful, especially if users can specify the exact level per content warning they'd rather avoid (for example, exempting moderate-to-graphic instances of a content warning, but allowing mild)

Also a possibility in case that coding is too wild and messy because of the individual nature of content warnings: just a blurb like the "People You Follow" blurb for the content warnings you selected to avoid, as a summary. ({Selected Content Warning}; Graphic: x reviewers. Moderate: y reviewers. Mild: z reviewers." And maybe a % of reviews number? Though that might not necessarily be helpful)

Could this also be like the 'content you like to read' except its 'content you don't want'? Because there's something (a specific trope) that doesn't need a warning, but I don't want to read. At the moment I'm just hitting the (x) for 'don't show this book in future recommendations or filtered searches' when I come across it in a blurb.
