EDIT 1 - I do fully understand the need for (strict) rules for Dall-E.
EDIT 2 - Changed the title from
restrictions (as this reflects my initial thoughts better).
So this tread / topic is not about blaming OpenAI to be “woke” or something. But it is more to point the system towards glitches and bugs regarding blocking harmless prompts.
And we can help each other out here, solving issues, share (legal) tricks and try to re-create prompts ourself.
Like (almost) all the others it (sometimes and mostly) is impossible to create any image with a perfectly save prompt.
I thought it was a good idea to bundle our good / bad practices, so we (and maybe OpenAI) can investigate our complains and real life situations.
O, and I am really getting angry / upset sometimes because a single, fully harmless prompt is blocked and rejected for nothing.
So maybe this thread can give us some cheer, reading the issues of others… you are not alone!
When I ask for
a polaroid depicting the style of the '80s the “all in one model” says this is a forbidden prompt.
Polaroid is a brand
The '80s is not at least 100 years old(technically correct…)
So I am not allowed to make a “Polaroid” photo, in the style of the '80s.
I wanted to create a funny image of a “Kermit the Frog with a broken and smoking computer”.
This is not allowed, because;
Broken things can suggest harm
Kermit the Frog is copyrighted(okay, I understand)
Smoking is not allowed(it’s the computer, stupid!)
Create an image of a plastic bottle with a label on it, clearly showing the country flag of land XXX.
I am not allowed to create country flags as they can be used in a negative manner
I wil create a generic country flag on their labels
This anonymous flag will indicate a fictional country, avoiding the use of a real flag
Serious, how on earth can I create an educational image “pointing” the message to a specific country (so kids know it is their own county we are showing here).
