Independent? Cool, idc about seeing a human over an avatar anywy.
From agencies? Creepy and fucked up due to how the talent is treated and everything is filtered through marketing specialists.

There may be some of them are fucked but not all agencies are fucked. This ain’t the first time an agency emerged as a “Black/Evil” company but there are some who are way ahead of Nijisanji.
As for all these vtuber corp related drama, being an indie is much better than being on a leash with them. They are they’re own boss and they will not graduate nor get terminated because they work for nobody.

The reason I worded it like that is because you commented on other images after I left my comment. That’s how I decide if someone is actively ignoring me or not. I think you should’ve seen my comment before you went to sleep.
Also don’t expect a reply from OP. He’s a massive dick.
Regarding this shipping suffix. It seems was banned when the announcement forum. Seems like it hasn’t caught on despite people voting for it. Moderators don’t seem to concerned about maintaining it either. As I said, you should be more concerned about OP not propley crediting.

@Grapefruit Face
People have lives, not every moment is spent checking notifications instead of enjoying the site, nor should people be expected to immediately reply to whatever comments or messages they get. I regularly see comments I plan to reply to but don’t until I’ve done something else more important, like take care of my own happiness and wellbeing.
Moderators are concerned abut maintaining and update tags regularly, but it’s low on the daily list of priorities vs. people uploading dodgy shit, vandalizing tags, or pointless fights and arguments blowing up because someone drew or shipped a horse wrong.

Me & My Delusions
@The Smiling Pony
I didn’t get a reply from JP for like 10 hours after he was commenting on other things so I came here to ask a moderator instead. Why are you so insistent on whinging at me for mentioning JP’s lack of response?
He’s acting like he’s a staff and wanting users to act professional with the way he’s seemingly patrolling the site so he should also be checking his notifications propley. Also the word “seemingly” means that he seems like he was choosing to ignore me. Not an actual fact. No need to attack me. You should be going after OP. Did you click the hyperlink? Those are the sort of people you should be going after. But instead you’re wasting your time whinging at me for daring to accuse the all mighty JP of ignoring me.
Can an actual moderator tell me how to fix the shipping tags to these new fangled ones? Or would you rather just whine about my reason of why I posted my question here in the first place? Also before you start getting hissy about me derailing this thread, it’s JP and The Smiling Pony’s fault. They’re simply making a mountain out of a mole hill because they can’t handle me accusing JP of ignoring me.

I miss the show so much

I don’t have subscriptions enabled.
Also don’t expect a reply from OP. […]
Thanks for the tip.
Regarding this shipping suffix. It seems was banned when the announcement forum.
AFAIK getting banned does not stop you from reading the forums. There also was no announcement about this when it was decided last summer.
Seems like it hasn’t caught on despite people voting for it. Moderators don’t seem to concerned about maintaining it either. As I said, you should be more concerned about OP not propley crediting.
99.9% of Derpi’s users don’t have the means, knowledge or time to fix existing shipping tags. They can create new tags just fine. And believe me, people are creating new shipping tags properly prefixed these days. I don’t have numbers to show you, but lately I’ve seen more new prefixed ship tags more than non-prefixed.

He’s acting like he’s a staff
Pointing out a new tagging rule isn’t “acting like staff”.
Pointing out tagging mistakes isn’t “acting like staff”.
Did you know that 99% of the time I don’t bother to say anything, I just fix the tags and move on.
Did you know that most people actually do change their tagging habits, if you point out that they’re doing something wrong? Now you do. Having to PM someone or get the mods involved is actually rare.
and wanting users to act professional with the way he’s seemingly patrolling the site
I’m not a police officer, I don’t “patrol the site”. I’m also a professional idiot, so I don’t expect much more than that from the others.
so he should also be checking his notifications propley.
I don’t keep automatic subscriptions enabled. I didn’t know you asked me something and demanded an instant reply. Next time, PM me if you want something from me immediately.
Also the word “seemingly” means that he seems like he was choosing to ignore me. Not an actual fact. No need to attack me. You should be going after OP. Did you click the hyperlink? Those are the sort of people you should be going after. But instead you’re wasting your time whinging at me for daring to accuse the all mighty JP of ignoring me.
“the all mighty JP” ah stop that, you’re making me feel important.
Can an actual moderator tell me how to fix the shipping tags to these new fangled ones?
I’m not a mod… but fixing a shipping tag is simple: if the tag does not have description nor implications, just delete the non-prefixed tag and add a new tag that’s prefixed with “ship:”. For example, imagine you have a shipping tag foobar. To fix it, you remove the foobar tag and add ship:foobar, then you repeat the same to all images tagged foobar. I’ve done this exact operation dozens of times lately.
For tags that have description and/or implications, all you can do is wait for a mod to come by and change the tag. I’ve encountered lots of shipping tags that have description and/or implication and I can’t do anything about those which kinda sucks, but again, I’m not a mod, so I don’t have access to the button that can rename a tag. If I had that button, you bet I would press it without hesitation.
Also before you start getting hissy about me derailing this thread, it’s JP and The Smiling Pony’s fault. They’re simply making a mountain out of a mole hill because they can’t handle me accusing JP of ignoring me.
Me and TSP making a mountain out of a mole hill? You’re the one who posted in a “Ask the mods anything” thread after you didn’t get an instant answer from me.

Good grief. That took long.

@JP
If you were waiting for a response from OP then why would you disable the subscription? Also I thought this forum was for asking moderators anything, I thought my question wasn’t urgent enough for the ask the mods important question thread.
Thank you for the explanation, I unironically think you would make a good member of staff. But you shouldn’t disable subscriptions. That’s stupid.
@The Smiling Pony
How was I supposed to know you were using an alt? Also quite rich of you to say that I’m no fun whilst you moderators have made me feel that I can’t even talk about my ponysona and fanon ships without worrying I’ll get banned.

You can’t ATTACK OTHERS over your ponysona and fanon ships.

OTHER people pretending that ANY of the MLP characters are THEIR WAIFU TOO is not a personal attack on you or your own pretend relationships with imaginary characters from a cartoon show.

Very not fun.

If you were waiting for a response from OP then why would you disable the subscription?
I usually subscribe to threads/images manually when I’m expecting a reply, but in this case I forgot. Probably not going to subscribe, because if OP is like what you said, they’ll never reply.
But you shouldn’t disable subscriptions. That’s stupid.
Having potentially dozens, if not hundreds, of notifications every day is stupid too. I’ve kept auto-subscribing off for over a decade now, not going to change that.

@Cosmas-the-Explorer
What TSP said.
The first 2-3 seasons are good. Then it becomes painfully obvious the writers have no idea how to resolve all the mysteries and tie up the loose plot points, and they really are just making things up as they go. They do eventually explain lots of the mysteries (even the smoke monster) but many of the explanations feel contrived. But that’s what you get when JJ Abrams is involved.
Despite of those shortcomings, I have lots of fond memories of the show. After finishing a season finale, and realizing you have to wait some 8-9 months until the next episode… that hit hard every time. I’d say it hit even harder than pony season finales (excluding the S2-S3 hiatus). The inter-season ARGs (Alternate reality games) were also interesting.
So go ahead if you want to watch it. You don’t have to wait for new episodes now, but remember that JJ Abrams part.
