To my horror today, I discovered that StackMobile was happily serving up content from the newest Stack Exchange site. (StackMobile has a cron job that runs daily, updating the list of sites using the API.)

So, to the point of my request - can we please add a flag to the /sites route that signals content that might be inappropriate for some users (since Stack Exchange reaches a broad range of users)?

Edit: after further thought, I remembered that this domain will also show up in /users/{ids}/associated. I'm not sure how that one can be resolved. Perhaps an app-specific flag can be set indicating whether such content should be exposed to the app.

  • What site are you talking about? The newest is Biology? but I agree there are some sites coming along that need such a flag.

  • Oh right, I forgot StackExchange doesn't show closed beta sites...

The Sexuality site was an experiment, one which failed.

We may revisit this in the future, but for now there's no point in the flag as it's one use case is gone.

  • Great - we can revisit this later if another similar site pops up but for now we don't need to worry about it. Jan 25, 2012 at 0:03
