    It's an adult blog.

    ie sex, porn, drug, etc.

    uh, no.
    I do not know the exact wording and if I am completly correct but I think this has to do the usage of the blog, for example, if a blog is created and never used its mature status is left at no, if it is used then its status is automatically updated to yes.

    Um, no. Per Donncha when we discussed it over at WP.com, that's what it means. I hit an adult blog when I was trying to help another blogger and we discussed this setting because I did not know what their policy was concerning adult blogs at the time. That flag is set when they want to keep blogs out of the "next blog" rotation and the top blogs list.

    I think this has to do the usage of the blog, for example, if a blog is created and never used its mature status is left at no, if it is used then its status is automatically updated to yes.

    A quick look at my list of blogs shows them all to be set to 'no' and this includes the ones being used.

    It's a manual set for adult content.

    Hmmm,
    On my install, I am the only SiteAdmin, and I have not messed with the mature settings for any blogs. Taking that into consideration, half of the blogs are have the mature setting of "yes" and the other half are "no". All the blogs that are set to yes are the blogs that have had activity, the blogs that are set to no are the blogs that have had very little if any activity.
    Taking this into consideration I see a couple of things.

    1. if what you said is correct, then how are the blogs on my install being set to "Yes", when I am not doing and there are no other admins. Is there a word filter, etc that wpmu is running through that is automatically setting this, but this shouldnt happen becuase as you stated it is a manual set. If this is the case there may be a bug.

    2. Maybe the mature setting that was discussed with Donncha was specific to wordpress.com. There are several features that are unique and specific to wp.com that are a little different (if available) in the wpmu, maybe this is one of them.

    Either way, why do I have blogs set at Mature, and other not set when I have not fiddled with this.

    Strange actually. The other though was after my discussion with Donncha, they came up with that "Include my blog in search engines" option over at WP.com and I thought last night it was something to do with that but testing it over here shows that it isn't.

    I'm stuck on a terminal today so I can't download the code here and do a search for where the mature flags gets messed with. I'll go ahead and add it to my todo list for tomorrow when I can do a file search.

    Can the users flag their own blog as mature?

    Haven't seen anything method to do so. That's why I was wondering about the Search engine box.

    'Mature' would seem to be a bad choice of words. I thought that it meant 'grown up' as in someone had put time into it, and therefore was a rudimentary on/off ranking system. For example, if you wanted a site wide search you might restrict it to the 'mature' sites.

    Seems I'm wrong there!

    I wrote a plugin that allows your users to toggle the 'mature' setting for their blog. WPMU Site Content Plugin

    Is there a way to toggle a complete site as mature? I'm going to be hosting multiple sites with MU, and want to set a few of the domains as Adult, so I don't have to worry about sitewide feeds picking up those sites, and then the adult sites will have a modified template only showing mature blogs.

    Thanks,
    Brad
