Show tags on adult content before clicking through

Previously, when coming across a post marked as adult content, the tags were visible below the 18+ warning. Now, I can't see what is going to be behind 18+ warning until after I click through, which makes it harder to know what I'm opting in to.

This was helpful for me because there are certain types of adult content I'm comfortable seeing and some I'm not, which might not otherwise warrant a separate content warning.

I'd like to request that tags stay visible even when there are warnings of any kind, whether by default or through a toggle.

I also want to be able to see the tags to discern something about the content of a hidden post. In case of 18+ posts I want to know if I'm scrolling past sexual content or if maybe someone just wanted to hide artistic nudity that I might be interested in. And hiding the tags behind a toggle actually sounds great in case some people don't want to see anything having to do with posts that are hidden.

Also by toggle I don't mean just one in a settings, but also if there could be a separate "show tags" button on a post if they are hidden via settings. Maybe at one time I don't want to deal with anything so I keep the tags hidden, but at another I want to be more informed and I'd like the option to see the tags without changing my global settings

why doesnt this have more upvotes

I'd also prefer to have the tags be visible before viewing a hidden 18+ post, for similar reasons to stated above. Sometimes I'm only in the mood for a certain kind of 18+ post, and the lack of tags means it's impossible to gauge what type of content may be in a post until I click it.

Yes, please. There are some kinds of adult content I'm totally fine with and others I would prefer to avoid like the plague. Being able to see what the poster has tagged it as in advance is a lifesaver. I also like the idea of a "show tags" button that is separate from showing you the post in its entirety and just lets you peek at the content warnings.

It's worth noting that there's many tags you might have different preferences about depending whether or not they happen in the context of a 18 post.

For example, i do not wish to see adult furry art, but i don't want to miss it if a friend has a new SFW picture of their character. Being able to see the tags before clicking would be the easiest way for everyone to satisfy this preference.

I created an account here to request this very feature, it'd be really helpful to know whether you wanted to see an R18 post or not.
