Is there a possibility of a “hide user” feature being added in the near future?
Something that hides a specific user’s comments, etc

I don’t think anyone is actively working on a feature like that. But there might be someone working on a branch to support it on the Philomena GITHUB - it is open source, and lots of people are working on different things. But, even if such a feature were added to Philomena I don’t think this site would ever adopt it.
That said, if someone is harassing you, or breaking rules, or being otherwise annoying in comments or sending you unwanted PMs, report them.
If they’re doing it to you, odds are good they’re doing it to someone else.

I miss the show so much
I’m unfortunately once again dealing with a user who takes other people’s vectors, copy-pastes them into a new image and uploads it with only their own artist tag and no sources at all. I’ve tried to contact them, but received no reply.
Is there really no other option except reporting them?

I really don’t know what other option there would be.
We can see their IP address, see if they have other profiles they are also using, and often are able to use bulk tools to fix whatever problems they are causing.
If after talking with them, or at least trying to talk with them, they won’t change then we’re able to escalate our responses.
So, yes - please report them.
But, if they’re who I think you are, I already have been sending them PMs and enough has happened that the big plexiglass shield over the “Ban this sucker” button has already popped up. So if it’s who I think it is, if your report shows they haven’t changed their behavior, then your report will help escalate the ‘final solution’.
Which, if it’s who I think you’re talking about, might actually be as good for them as it will be for all the artists whose work they keep slapping onto crude edits. Behind the scenes the amount of self-loathing going on is legendary. Very much “I don’t know how to stop” energy.

Any plans on increasing the report limit? Five open reports is too limiting when there are shitty things going on.
All I can do is watch and hope that someone else reports the violations.

We’re discussing. I’ll also look through any reports you have open that are hanging fire.

I’m sure this question has been brought up in the past but do fanfics have to be fully pony related or can they be crossovers of other stuff?

Is there a way to check the creation date of a gallery? It is clearly something that is stored, since you can sort gallery searches by it, but gallery pages only shows the timestamp of the last update

Can I post an image that has non-English text on it, and also in the description?
Background Pony #04BC
Can the “Confirm You Are Not A Robot” thing be removed, I’m so sick of it popping up randomly & then when I click to tell it I’m not one, it stupidly sends me back to page 1, even though I might be on say, page 22 or deeper in. Either fix it so it doesn’t do that or remove it, please?

@Background Pony #07CA
Yes, of course. There are many such images on the site. If you can provide a translation in the description that is always appreciated.
@Background Pony #04BC
Sorry, but we’re not likely to disable it. If you would like to avoid it, you may create a profile.
@Sff
Sorry, even at my view, even when editing, even moderators can’t see that information. You might need to ask for it to be added as a feature request.
@14Fan
A lot of fanfics are crossovers. Crossovers are fine.

What is the maximum length of an image description?
In characters, or lines
I have an image description that has more than forty lines of text, describing the image
And I want to ask if it would be bad to use that description, like a wall of tags
Taking a lot of time to reach the comment section for example
Background Pony #A5E7
Yeah, the bot thing is totally busted. It’s asked me to prove I’m human fourteen times today, all on the same PC and browser. Beep boop, I guess?
