Age prompt for NSFW catagories


#1

I saw a post about this way back in 2014,

but since it wasnt in a category, and i was interested in it becoming a thing,i decided it would be better to put in a request here as opposed to bumping an old topic.

As stated in the topic above, would it be possible for someone to create a plugin that can:

  • Make category and thread titles that are visible to all users (including logged out users, Google, etc.)

  •  Make it so when attempting to view the thread posts, users are be required to 
    

sign in and check a box that confirms that they’re over a certain age
(e.g. 18 years)

  • Allow logged in users who have opted-in to adult-only conversation can view and participate in the category normally, without having to verify their age again.

Currently I am using a group/permission system to deal with this problem, however it generally makes that category and conversation grow slowly because even with a pinned topic in the meta category, most people dont notice its existence.

I understand that the Discourse team is unlikely to want to take the time to implement this, so this topic is largely for charitable plugin designers.

Thanks in advance!
