Fixing Wrongfully Tagged Posts In StumbleUpon

I was surprised to know when some of my post in StumbleUpon (SU) were tagged under pornography and BDSM or simply saying, with adult content when they have none.  A system bug or glitch or what ever the cause maybe, I'm not comfortable with them being tagged wrongfully, more as porn or adult material. 

It's quite simple how to fix it up by just following the steps:
  1. Go to your SU Profile Likes.
  2. Locate the posts which have wrongfully tagged interest.
  3. Click the post's content button (it looks like an "i" inside a circle).

  4. Choose the "Something Wrong" symbol among the buttons.

  5. Among the questions, select "Is this page not about BDSM?" or whatever is applicable.
  6. Click the tab selector button under the "Suggested Interest" row and  choose what's the appropriate category/interest in the list.
  7. Press "Send Report", then the "Done" button.
And then that's it.  You just have to wait for SU as it'll take them 24 hours or more to process changes to the topic of a page.  Hope it works for you.  Yahweh bless.

  4. I think I should do more SU stuff. It does help with increasing traffic, doesn't it? Thanks for the tip.

  5. Are there a lot of Stumble Upon users? I dont have one but if it does increase traffic maybe I can create one in the future.
