    Correct, there are no vote buttons supposed to appear on finally decided categories for a domain, approved and rejected.  Vote buttons are to appear only beside undecided categories.

    The appropriate action would be to 'Flag for review', but as I have experienced, this doesn't cause anything, so the best bet is to raise a support ticket, link "Submit a request" above.

    There is a huge discussion in the comments concerning 'rejected' categories such as nudity, porn, bikini. For 'vimeo' showing upset. There is NO review possibility available on those rejected categories yet those can be found on vimeo. The screenshot that was displayed does not show the problem i want this idea bank suggestion to address. Falsification!!!!!

    Furthermore. Flag for review Is Not available for a rejected category in this case 'nudity' 'porn' 'bikini' and a lot of other similar categories for 'vimeo'

    "Flag for review Is Not available for a rejected category"

    'Flag for review' is available for everything, because it is meant to be general for every kind of review.  But again: using this option doesn't seem to be causing anything going forward, so open a support ticket with any concerns you may have.

    Also, I do not think that vimeo.com will ever be approved in one of the mentioned categories.  It simply would not fit into those.  Same you could say about Google/YouTube, Facebook, Yahoo and others.  For example, Vimeo is clearly not a porn site.  The view of Vimeo being a porn site would not be common sense.  If you want to have Vimeo blocked, then feel free and simply add vimeo.com to your "always block" list.  This is what can be offered and what the blacklist is good for.  It's simply your right to block it in networks you own.

    rotblitz  If in fact "Porn", "nudity" etc categories will continue to be 'rejected' for this sort of site, then it seems to me Umbrella, Cisco, OpenDNS should have other categories listed that will be "approved"  for families to choose from.  For lack of a better name how about:   "Porn No, but can be found", "Nudity No, but Nudity can be found", "Lingerie and Bikini No but significant amounts can be found","Sexuality No, but can be found"

    Ok, that would be category 'Adult Themes' which is still 'Awaiting votes' at https://domain.opendns.com/vimeo.com since 2009...


    Did you vote?  Most likely not...

    And again: you have that blacklist for individual domains.  Why don't you use it?

    Thanks for that info.  Question: How many votes does it take for "Adult Themes" category to be approved for Vimeo? 

    Yes, I did vote on this in the past, and others have too, since 2009.  Yet this is STILL AWAITING VOTES?

    So many people have complained and dumped urls for Vimeo showing Adult content.

    Here's another screen shot of comments concerning Vimeo. Looks like some comments are from the same poster but others appear from other people.  I'd like to know how many people have "voted" for the "Adult themes" category so far for Vimeo since 2009.

    Well, I'm a user like you and have access to the same information as you.  If we click the link See who voted on this domain, we see a lot of nicknames but without seeing who voted for what category or if "yes", "no" or "not sure".  You now will also find your nickname there.

    "Question: How many votes does it take for "Adult Themes" category to be approved for Vimeo?"

    As far as I know, it needs 5 "yes" over 0 "no" to appear in a domain tagging moderator's queue for final decision.  Not sure what is the case if there are also "no" and "not sure" votes for a category...

    Therefore again: if you want to know more or want to get something achieved, you open a support ticket.  This can significantly speed up approvals for a certain category, usually fulfilled within 72 hours during working days, not 9 years like in the example above.  The user community here cannot help you.  Discussions here are like a fight against wind mills.  And as I explained, a vote button on finally decided (approved or rejected) categories for a domain is not an option either.  You cannot raise a vote if the president is already finally elected.  It's too late then.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I guess I was under the false impression that you could do something about it.  Thank you for sticking to commenting so I could understand and also how to push it up the ladder.

    I have just submitted a support ticket 5/15/2018  and we'll see what happens.  Here is what I wrote, if you think I should change anything let me know.

    For anyone following this thread, someone at Umbrella / Cisco support rejected "ADULT THEMES" category and wiped the adult URL's that other OpenDNS users posted.  I have added to the support ticket #450886


    I'd like to complain to someone higher up if not the CEO of Cisco.
    The category concerning Vimeo.com "Adult Themes" has now been "rejected." Furthermore, the complaints from OpenDNS users about adult themes has been totally wiped. See the two pictures I uploaded to see what was removed.

    It seems totally wrong that "Adult Themes" would be rejected. Here are only a few screenshots to prove the point. There are much worse.

    Thanks for keeping us informed.  Good luck!

    Btw, as I said already above, you still have the option to add vimeo.com to your "always block" list.  Then you have the effect you want.

    Yes I've done that, but not all users know how to do it.
    Vimeo is a top site and if CISCO allows VIMEO to be shielded it tells me there's other sites they do this for as well.  Now that someone with Cisco/Umbrella has wiped their comments off the page others will have to figure it out on their own.

    Thanks for your help and advice.
