Blood


Small amounts of blood, like a nose bleed, scraped knees or blood drop to show a character’s blood color is okay without a mask. Large amounts of gore, like deep cuts and wounds need a moderate gore filter.
Spoiler:


"Fake" Gore


Candy gore, flower gore, sparkle gore, robotic gore, and any sort of non-realistic blood needs to be filtered. Small amounts of gore to show a character's blood is okay without a filter. Fake gore needs a moderate or extreme filter depending on the intensity of the representation to real gore/organs.

Bruising


Small bruises, such as a black eye or a bumped knee are fine without a filter. However, extreme bruising (large or multiple bruises) should be under a moderate gore filter
Spoiler:


Open Wounds


Small cuts are okay to be posted without a filter. Large wounds need to be under a moderate gore filter, as well as any infected wounds. Healed scars are fine without a filter, however healed scars with self harm inflicted wounds need the sensitive content filter.

Spoiler:


Flayed/Missing Skin


Visible muscles/tissue and torn skin need to be filtered. If there is no detail beneath the missing skin (ie, just a color), this uses the moderate gore filter. Detailed tissue and muscle needs an extreme filter.

Spoiler:


Spilling Guts


Any sort of organs or innards (cartoonish or otherwise) outside of the body need an extreme gore filter.

Spoiler:


Missing Limbs


Simplified or cartoonish bone stumps with a single color are fine without a mask. Those that show moderate detail should be under a moderate gore filter. Detailed musculature requires an extreme gore filter. Healed amputations are fine with no filter

Spoiler:


Eye or Nail Trauma


Nail and eye trauma, like extremely injured eyes and ripped off nails, need an extreme gore filter.

Spoiler:
