Is there a way to see someone else's favourites but by the time they did favourite a picture?

If I make myself a second account (To post my own content that falls into suggestive and onwards, keeping safe separate from the rest) I need to report it with you guys so you know that the other account is also mine? I kinda want to separate both contents on different accounts but I don't want to get banned either.

No, you don't have to

Mods only care if you use multiple accounts in order to artificially push drama or affect site functionality (such as image scores).

Yeah if what they complain about is filterable like ships, themes, characters, species, activities, a specific author, etc. then yeah that's exactly what "complaining about filterable content" means.

Well you could contact staff to ask what happened there, if they disagree with it being against rule #4 and what you should do in the future about this issue etc.

Oh and my "contact staff" I mean privately, via Discord maybe. AFAIK staff can't really discuss specific cases in this thread.

[…] it's just that since i last reported those comments they are still up even after the report got closed and idk if i should report them again since the comments are still going on

Normally, someone just showing up to say they downvoted an image is very much "you already down voted it, why are you even sharing that?" and it would be deleted either for being meta to the image (Rule #6) or whining about filterable content (Rule #4), depending on the actual comment.

However, for that specific comment, they were rather civilly replying to speculation about downvotes on the image, talking about their own personal opinion of the artist's work in a way that is arguably a critique.

That said, as I'm sure you can see from the remains of the comments on that particular image, we had a bigger fire to deal with. And once that 'bigger fire' was dealt with, we didn't enter the burning husk of the smoldering remains to check to make sure the doilies on the arm chair were straight.

So please don't consider our treatment of that one individual comment on that one specific image as being an example of how that rule is normally handled.

@Phoenixflambe
Please report one (or a list) of the images that you believe is inappropriately tagged so we can look at it.

Actually, I was hoping you would use a REPORT. I'll open a report for you.

On first glance, I can't see why some of those would be questionable instead of suggestive — if it helps, remember the prime time TV "Coppertone" ads showing a bare bottom. And, as an aside, not all those tag changes were by the moderator you're asking.

But discussing the details of the rating of each of the images themselves really isn't apropos this thread. Instead, please ask about them in the thread for discussing ratings of individual images.

I don't know that the standard has necessarily changed, questionable has always required at least a hint of a crotch or camel toe or something like this, and "Coppertone-style" butt-shots have even been rated Safe at times, depending on the image.

For these images, they just aren't what I think are "clearly" questionable. They clearly aren't Safe, and clearly aren't Explicit, and for me Suggestive seems like the correct rating.

Please ask about them in the thread for discussing ratings of individual images. That will be a better place to explore the ratings for each of those images. Then folks who work on ratings can weigh in on them, and maybe give some more explanation as to their rating.

I'm hoping to get better informed about what looks like a lack of action on a couple closed reports of mine. It was about what I felt was an ongoing case of bad tagging by a user, and besides a report on the user, on a specific image (May 20 and May 31 respectively). After they were closed, I didn't see any changes to tags, neither on the specific image nor others affected by what I described. (Being vague in case I'm in the wrong — mods I'm sure have a way to look up what I'm talking about.)

Anyway, I reverted the tags on the specific image, but before I might "clean up" the other changes, it seems wise to understand the mods' perspective:
- Am I wrong in my impression of the tagging? (And there's no moderation action, obviously)
- Am I not wrong, but it wasn't seen as enough of a problem to need moderator action? (And I should feel free to pursue retagging on my own)
- Is my opinion right, and moderators might follow up but it's low priority so no-one has gotten around to it yet?
- Is my opinion right, and action was taken, but I'm just not looking where it has happened and/or it's not on everything I think it should be and/or humans are fallible and things were missed or skipped?
