How to enable Adult Content on your account
By default, adult content will be covered with a warning when viewing 500px. If you'd like to skip this warning and enable the viewing of adult content on your account, go to your Settings and scroll down to the bottom right hand side of the panel to enable the Display Adult Content option, then click Save.
Definition of Adult Content
In order to maintain a safe and inclusive environment for people from all walks of life, we ask that adult content be labeled accurately in order to cater to the preferred experience of our entire community. Adult content includes, but is not necessarily limited to nudity, or partial nudity (both front and back side) with or without sexual implications. Adult Content may also include shocking or disturbing images, such as violence or blood, not typically suitable suitable for viewers under the age of 18. Your avatar or cover photo should also not contain any adult content.
Definition of NSFW (Not Safe For Work) Content
NSFW Content is best defined as any content exhibiting the same parameters as Adult Content, but also includes other genres involving sensitive topics. As the title suggests, any content not suitable for viewing in the workplace should have the Adult Content filter applied.
*Breasts in the context of breast-feeding a child or showing post-mastectomy scarring are not considered adult content.
Adult Content Photos on Mobile Apps
Apps follow whatever Adult Content setting you have on the website. If you have chosen to Display Adult Content in 500px.com/settings then you will see adult photos in the Apps as well, but only in the Profile and Following pages. In order to make our apps available to everyone, and continue to build an inclusive community that puts our photographers and their work first, we filter adult content out of the public streams on our iOS and Android apps. The content is still visible in users’ Profiles and in the Following stream.
Adult Content Moderation
We have a team of photo moderators that monitor the site. We also have an automated moderation system. If a photo is reported for being improperly marked as Adult Content by a member of the 500px community, a moderator will look at the photo to determine if it is Adult Content or not. If you feel your photo was incorrectly labelled Adult or removed from 500px, send a report here.
