Ask the Mods Important Site Questions (V2)

Background Pony #699F
Because I am still again at the 3 report limit (one being “In-progress” for over two weeks) I guess I’ll have to ask this here: if a work is substantially derivative of a DNP artist’s work, is it itself barred by the DNP? In particular, >>2532885 which the artist states is based on this art by Dilarus.

Can someone please add the tag  
casual sex  
to this?  
It absolutely fits the bill and would be nice if it could be found with it.
 
And  
sexually oblivious  
for Twily

I’m more curious why nobody added the tags - isn’t accurate tagging one of THE big reasons and selling points for a booru?
 
Or can not even mods do that on a locked image?

Mods can and will edit locked tags. The most effective way to request a tag change when tags are locked is reporting the image in question. The second one would be the relevant tagging thread (either the general tagging thread or the rating tag thread). Leaving a request in any other forum thread is going to be a shot in the dark.

I am 99% sure I tried posting in that thread before but thanks for the suggestion  
Another attempt
 
Isn’t reporting mostly for serious problems with things? Like broken rules etc?

Yes. Mostly, not exclusively. It can be used to request any action on the site that requires mod ops, like establishing/adding/removing artist links on your own profile.

Because we all also have lives and while I wasn’t the one who added the tags, I don’t check this thread for questions unless the report queue is empty.
 
@Background Pony #3E8D & @saby  
Totally yes.
 
If we’ve locked the tags on an image and a tag needs to be changed, report the image for “Other” and let us know what you think should be done in the text field.
 
That’ll get seen by any moderator who is on duty and working reports.
 
Think of the report queue more as a ‘task list’ - it’s like our kanban board.

And that’s totally fine, you have every right to that! It’s just that I posted about this in the Discord support channel about 1 week ago too, with no reactions.  
Which made me wonder if the tags don’t apply to that particular image for some reason, hence my question on why they didn’t get added.
 
And I see @ reporting, good to know.

It’s been sent. You can hide your side of it, but you can’t ‘unsend’ it to the other person.
 
If it involves something that includes some sort of personal risk to yourself or others, or some sort of legal issue, you can write to Ops@Derpibooru.Org and ask them if they can do something on the database side.
 
But from the moderation side, we can’t even see that PM unless you give us a link to it, and have no ability to delete other people’s PMs.

Is it just me, or the site became a little slow lately? I mean if I click on something, even something simple like upvoting an image, it takes about a second before it reacts.
 
(Sorry if this is not the right place to ask such questions.)
 
Edit: It doesn’t happen all the time, sometimes it goes back to normal.

How to actually deactivate an account? My interest in pony stuff is essentially near extinct and I’ll probably consider doing one. Not to mention certain fandom behaviors / instances that I noticed are far more common as time goes on, that’s just too much for my overall mental state.

I had an interesting question, my fiance is an artist and really /really/ bad at tagging things and the likes. I essentially manage her art for her. Is it possible to get an artist link so I can manage her art on this website without having her directly make an account?
