That’s not want I’m wanting. I’m wanting to see results from both galleries (total image count in the results should be 369).

so i recently posted a comment on image 3148011, it is a “fighting is magic” screenshot, tagged from the game. clearly a grab from one of the dozens of tribute game varieties.
the comment i made was in response to a person talking about the project getting scrapped and how nice the dev team was for making a good game.
my comment was deleted for responding to that person instead of to the image. it was flagged as breaking rule #6, too meta about the post.
seeing as my post was responding directly to someone else but their post was not deleted im assuming mine was deleted for bringing up that the art was actually stolen, and telling the person about how the mane6 company actually released a statement asking for any tribute games to not be made, and that they were hurting deeply because of the theft and distribution of their creation.
i believe a mod removed my comment for reasons outside of the reason why it was flagged.
so ill make my question fairly clear.
why does derpibooru allow fighting is magic gif’s and pictures on their site even though it is publicly known that they are all stolen assets that the original creators asked not to be posted online? and also why are mods deleting posts informing people about what happened?
Background Pony #6327
stolen images. i was reporting stolen images that the mods are refusing to take down.
having comments deleted when i tell people the images are stolen i start to believe the mods are actually protecting the art thieves which is why i asked my question here. i have attempted to talk to mods in the past but i was actually unaware there was an appeal form i could fill out, ill try that in the future.

@Background Pony #6327
There is no “form”. I am telling you how to talk to us.
Again - bitching about us not acting on your reports on random images is not “talking with mods” - it’s posting off topic comments on random images and that is not permitted here.
Read the contact page - it’s on the footer of the site. Go to the Support channel on our Discord server. That is where you will be able to talk with us.
And stop posting complaints on random images.

i asked why known stolen art is allowed on the site, gave a specific example of one i reported, and you responded twice without answering my question, instead telling me to stop complaining on images when i am literally asking on the forum right now directly to you.

The vast bulk of your post was absolutely not about ‘known stolen art’ - it was about your comment being deleted and your reports not being acted on.
And the images you have reported are absolutely not “known stolen” - you have presented zero evidence of this claim. Go to Support and talk to staff there, and be prepared to present your evidence.

How to find report page in the interface? And is there is possibility of making already posted non-anonymous comments anonimous, or contrariwise? I remember (or it just seems to me) it’s that year ago i saw and even use anonymous option while editing already posted comment.

Not a mod, but I can answer this part: go to your user profile (click your user icon in the top bar of the site while logged in), and then click “My reports” in the group of links that appear near the top.

Non-Fungible Trixie -
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 miss the show so much
Is there no way to contact the persistent background pony who, day after day, keeps tagging safe-rated images of males as solo male? On some days they can tag 20-30 images incorrectly. I’ve reported them twice now, but they just keep going on.
I can undo their work easily, but it’d be wonderful if I didn’t have to. If I could tell them to stop because their tagging spree is just a waste of time…

Not important question but I don’t want to create a new thread nor necro previous threads:
If I uploaded a WIP image to meet the deadline set for a badge, is it possible to merge the WIP image for the finished one later?

@tehwatever
Personally, I think keeping both is nicer. A WIP will count toward the badge, and you can update it later.
I’ve got some sketches that I submitted back when I was disabled for some events, and am working on finishing them now, years later.
So, for those, I’ll leave the original for historical purposes, since that is ‘how I got that badge’.
But I can still make a new version of it whenever I’m able and want to.

Hi, I’d like to cancel my art takedown and DNP change request. You can thank Equestria Girls’ birthday for that.
Please and thank you.

Is there a time delay for uploading images? Because last time I tried to upload two images consecutively but it didn’t allow me to and it basically erased all my progress on tags and descriptions, but it didn’t show any error notification.
