Here’s a question for you mods (based on “The Cutie Re-Mark):
  1. Did you mods actually liked/disliked the part where Starlight Glimmer visiting the past, mainly, the day where Rainbow Dash pulled out her first Sonic Rainboom, was such a good idea?
  2. Did you mods liked any of the alternate timelines Starlight Glimmer created?
  3. Do you mods consider the song “Friends Are Always There For You?” as a favorite?
  4. Do you mods like Starlight Glimmer’s original mane in the Season finale (as opposed to her current one seen since Season 6)?
  5. What do you mods think about the relationship between Starlight and Sunburst during childhood years at Sire’s Hollow?
  6. Do you mods have an opinion about how good or bad Starlight Glimmer created the alternate timelines and changing the time when Rainbow Dash’s first sonic rainboom was born?

How does spam show up on this website? Most of the spam doesn’t seem to be the ones that Derpibooru users aren’t very interested in.
They’ve been on here for a fair while, most of the links they send are to scam sites or malicious links that use cookies to do nasty things to you; as in steal your info etc. DO NOT ever click on a link they provide, you never know if its a phishing link…
Do you have a mythical/fantasy creature you would like to keep it as a pet?
Definately a small dragon; especially one based off the original Toothless from the Books by Cressida Cowell or an Asian Noodle aka Dragon.

Notoriously Divine Tagger - Consistently uploads images above and beyond the minimum tag requirements. And/or additionally, bringing over the original description from the source if the image has one. Does NOT apply to the uploader adding several to a dozen tags after originally uploading with minimum to bare tagging.

I am curious to know why an airliner or buisness spam ad would target derpibooru of all things. Wouldn’t it make more sense to trick us with stuff we like?

A lot of the spam is utterly ridiculous.
Like, an advertisement for machine parts where delivery is limited to within 25 miles of some town in Afghanistan.
The ad serves no purpose. Almost no one on this site would ever need machine parts within 25 miles of some town in Afghanistan.
If you PAID for that spam, you would be so freaking angry. It’s just a waste of everyone’s time - even whatever it is that they’re advertising.
And a lot of it is for ‘escort services’. Mostly in places where, again, very few people here actually are.
But the worse is the stuff for high school and college level essays. All you need is an image tagged with school or for someone to be talking in the forums about their assignment for college, and it will get just absolutely carpeted with spam about essay services.
I was wondering if the reason it’s ramped up so much in the last week has been because of China’s spam network. Apparently those are hitting social media pretty hard.
But, we’re just a little fan run art site. I don’t know why those would even be aware of this site.
Still, periodically we get some epic-level Epoch Times spam.
@TheGamerPainter
Sometimes it is really, really hard. They’ll include replies to other people’s posts. They’ll seem interested in what is happening in the thread. But then hidden in their [random word here link] its an escort service or dog walker service or something like that.
The worse ones are stuff like the swag.mov spammer. I honestly still can’t tell if it’s a badly written bot, or someone with really challenging issues.

I frequently see similar spam posts on BZPower, a Bionicle/LEGO forum. Maybe it’s a forum thing the bots are able to track?
