Anyone else find the appeals process for photos slightly lacking? I’m writing a historical fiction novel set in World War 2, and it deals SPECIFICALLY with Nazi experiments on POWs and Jewish prisoners and their struggles to survive the ordeal.
I thought to myself “Hmmm a Swastika or concentration camp might be pretty unsettling and disturbing, so instead I’ll just put generic pills in black and white (my story deals with medical experiments)”. Nothing published, just drafts I’m updating. Bam…flagged photo for self-harm and suicide?
Naturally I appeal thinking “oh, maybe the algorithm saw it as something it’s not”. In my explanation I showcase the idea behind NOT showing upsetting imagery associated with Germany, and instead using generic pills to still make it connect to my story. 24 hours later, “we reviewed your appeal and it glorifies self-harm and suicide.”
…What? Disappointed, but I doubt a human actually looked at my appeals. Probably a 24 hour automatic response that just denies everyone.
