i personally think it's a good thing that people make alternative sites to derpibooru, this relieves the pressure from the staff team and opens up opportunities for them to do as they wish without the pressure of being the only pony image hosting site of it's kind.


Are you planning to make more changes like this without talking to the community first?
That's what it sounds like from this quote

Also, my concern with having things spread over several boorus is having to browse duplicate content to on multiple sites to find unique stuff, it can already get a bit time consuming to keep up with just one booru on more active days, trying to do so with 2-4 boorus will be prohibitively so

If you're posting as a background pony, can you really call it "on the record"?

@Luna
The free market of pony boorus is ultimately healthier and more resilient. Unfortunately, it's less convenient for users who expect one singular complete repositor. None the less, I'd rather have an account for each of 6 pony artboards than an account each for Tumblr, Twitter, and DA (let alone join Instagram).

@NamelessNP
You and I seem in agreement on this post.

I agree that the DNP situation is pretty bad, bit too late to fight that now though, derpi opened a real bad can of worms with petty politics, and staff cannot be trusted, likely ever again
This is the new age, where artist's wants/rights will likely longer be relevant with many of the new boorus, and none of these boorus would have come out of the woodworks to begin with, if derpi just stayed politically neutral to begin with

I don't understand the rationale of artists that are going DNP because they are anti-censorship.

"Censorship is bad, so I'm censoring my content from this site"
Background Pony #3020
@Background Pony #E23A
Censorship
1. the suppression or prohibition of any parts of books, films, news, etc. that are considered obscene, politically unacceptable, or a threat to security.

If i draw something and i decide that i won't give it to someone, this has nothing, really nothing, in common with censorship.
But anyway, it doesn't matter anymore because the reports of the pro-censorship twitter mob to patreon were successful and derpibooru will not be able to stay afloat now, because the pro-censorship platform gets censored by an larger platform.
What irony.

I mean… If the site gets shut down, then you will essentially be saying "BURN ALL MY STUFF, RIGHT NOW OR ELSE!" and also getting everything that's been created here over many years deleted. OP is right.

The site's wellbeing doesn't trump the rights of artists to think that something is rotten and avoid it. Sadly, with the new rule changes, I support anyone who feels uncomfortable with them abandoning ship.

Even without the changes, DNPs are an important to follow ethical guideline.

@Background Pony #FB27
Unless an artist is demanding you delete all of their art off of your own hard drive, they are not saying "BURN ALL MY STUFF, RIGHT NOW OR ELSE!" by having their art taken down. Please stop using that analogy.

Given that only three artists who went DNP in July have had art under their tag uploaded since, and one of those three was me and another was in stark violation, there's no going back anymore. It's too late to bring those artists back, ever.

Considering nearly a quarter of all DNP requests ever made was just the last four weeks, we've suffered a huge blow…

And they've not all be sorted, either. I did mine 28 days ago and it's still not been done. So either there's a LOT of DNPs or they're just ignoring them.

There's about 50 people ahead of you in line.

@Background Pony #8E41

What did you give as your reason? I recently requested a DNP on Derpi and got it done on the same day, so maybe your request was deliberately ignored.

Yours was a simple DNP, no takedown. Those get handled faster because they are faster.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
I wonder if this is what the admins thought would happen when they decided to kow tow to some ego tripping twitter goons.

If this website dies you can't blame the people filing DNPs, they didn't start this garbage and there is no problem with them not wanting their works associated with whatever this site claims to stand for, which depending on who you ask, is either Nazi Sympathy or radical authoritarianism on behalf of some communist twitter lunatics.

And whether you like it or not, Altboorus ARE the solution, competition will solve this problem, if Derpibooru cant do what is necessary to keep its users then it will die and be replaced. Derpibooru is a platform, the onus is 100% on them to make this a favorable place for producers and consumers to congregate, if they will not do that then they should die off so someone who will provide that platform can take their place, it's as simple as that.

Working as intended.

I am pretty sure MySpace also thought it will never be replaced.

And look where it is now.

Same might be coming for Derpibooru if they do not read the writing on the wall.

Try installing this, it will save you the time doing so

@Clear Vision
The problem here is that many of these sites are just importing directly from Derpibooru, have (almost) no rules and out of those that you listed, only Ponybooru even offers DNPs, or a chance for artists to be listened to at all. If an artist doesn't want their work posted somewhere, there's a reason. My reason is that these sites have poorly written rules, some of my links in the descriptions are broken and I cannot change it, or they're just extremely unprofessional/4chan-esque.

I don't care about being pro or anti-censorship, I just want control over my own artwork in terms of how and where it's publicly displayed, and that shouldn't be too much to ask for. What other artists choose to do with their work is not my business.
That the unnecessary evil that was created, after this whole DNPs civil war fiasco. They have the choice of denying artists control of their artwork and be just a art archiving site or be a alternative to Derpibooru.

Because they bring in a bunch of pedos and child molesters scandals. While simultaneously banning people that don't "toe the line" or they don't like in general.

So far the main argument that I've seen is that they believe that art should be preserved (as well as the history of the fandom), but why do that now after the controversy has happened?
