Work safe MiniSpy is now default for new registrations

New members now see the "safe browsing" MiniSpy by default, they will be required to toggle off topic (non tech) forum threads themselves.

 

This move comes as a measure to make Neowin safer for the workplace. Guests already only see worksafe results in the MiniSpy as well, this has been the case for a long time.

 

The preference is now per user account, so when you toggle it and login on another device it will display your preference..

 

For current members, nothing has changed, but you can set your preference here:  http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?app=core&module=usercp

 

This weekend it will be added as a complete registration option as well.

Hello,

New members now see the worksafe MiniSpy by default, they will be required to toggle off topic (non tech) forum threads themselves.

 

This move comes as a measure to make Neowin safer for the workplace. As it is a cookie based preference, even if you block cookies from Neowin you will only see worksafe results in the MiniSpy as well.

 

The preference is also per machine, not per user account, so a new member will need to toggle the MiniSpy preference each time they view Neowin on another device as well.

 

For current members, nothing has changed, but you can set your preference here:  http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?app=core&module=usercp

I understand the decision but don't you feel like new members will lose out on a lot more things on Neowin? This I imagine is what you said about tech problems solved, making Neowin more oriented towards technology and problem solving but I do feel like new members might miss out some content.

How about this: In the registration process, a tick to turn ON NSFW content. By default and if a member just clicks next, next, etc it will hide those....

I say this but even I dont agree with my iidea :laugh:

Great idea we will do this (y) also updating the first post because it will be account based, not per machine.

The option is now per user account, not per device as it is now saved in your member account preferences. I updated the first post.

So you're encouraging people to go on Neowin when they're suppose to be working. Great idea! :laugh: (Y)
