Nobody is declaring war on Derpibooru and threatening lives, there is no precedent for self-defense, they’re posting stupid horse pictures on the internet. It’s not because there’s be some infinitesimal probability that allowing Nazi content on the website might lead to the gaining popularity of this ideology and subsequently its implementation in some form you don’t like that this is a valid justification to not allow Nazi content on the site. You’re acting like an agoraphobic who refuses to go outside because of some small chance that they might be harmed or killed. Don’t you think that you’re being extremely overly cautious over things you don’t know.

You know I think you could just replace all of Inucraft’s responses with “But Nazis.” and the substance of them all would not change the slightest.

The latter image is deleted for Rule #3 (obligatory pony, or in this case, obligatory twilicane), not Rule #0 (discrimination etc.). If there was some original art to it I’m quite sure it wouldn’t’ve been deleted. The former image seems like it has original art in the flag, though I can’t be certain of that.

The Rule 3 deletions are things that should’ve been deleted when they were uploaded swept up during a Rule 0 review of old images in bulk. The “Nazi” tag was checked first (if it’s tagged Nazi and not deleted now, it’s probably there to stay), and we’re currently looking at images under the “racism” tag.  
In time I intend to make sure we do a pass over political images in general, which would actually be Rule 3 focused I think.  
I should note as well that we deleted 3 images that were tagged “nazbol” for Rule #3: 1742050 1769013 1887794. There appears to be some inconsistency there, which we’ll have to clean up later.

Thanks for the info, but the fact that all nazi images were manually reviewed just raises more questions about inconsistencies.
 
Some soldier/uniform edits were kept like  
 
while others were somehow considered not pony related.
 
Same goes for real life edits which have a small few remaining  

 
I don’t think I’ve heard anyone asking that artists like davca be purged or editing on clothing of villians from outside the mlp universe be banned. If this style art isn’t considered hateful, which apparently it wasn’t given that some stayed and the examples I gave were all only rule 3 bans, then I see no reason why they would be banned and considered “not related to mlp”.

Oh good, we wouldn’t want to delete any images with a hammer and sickle ^:)

I’ll have to check on those 2, whether we missed them. I think the first one is fine, though.  
As for “Nazbol”, I mean that there were two versions of an image, one with text and framing, and the latter was kept up, which seems like a mistake (adding more non-pony garbage shouldn’t make it less Rule 3). As well, there are two (the oldest images currently up under the tag) that I would say are blatantly Rule 3 and were probably missed.

Sorry to keep bothering you, but is there some way we could get a more clear explanation of the thought process staff go though when deciding if something is pony related?  
I still don’t understand would make staff think these are these pony related and allowed (I would hope)
 
 

 
while these are rule 3

It really seems like the Nazi element is whats getting these removed (only davca’s Nazi images are being removed for rule 3, both uniform edits are rough around the edges like most such edits are) and if so, then the wording of rule 3 isn’t very clear.

The main question is whether something looks simply “pasted in”. On the first image, we can see shading on the pony that integrates her into the picture, which I think puts it over the line of not being eligible for Rule 3, quite different from the Trixie image.  
The Sunset image’s deletion is concerning, as it seems clear that there’s an artistic quality to it. That one will have to be brought up in the upcoming consistency pass.

That’s fair. I think there’s a few other images I already mentioned that would meet that requirement, but if there’s some stuff temporarily removed during the commotion that’s respectable. I think there’s also some other images that were rule 3’d by accident and should be re-looked at eventually.
 
https://derpibooru.org/images/190790 (Seems to be an original piece by the artist, there isn’t another version on this site. Might just get rule 0’d instead, but I’d argue abusing fluttershy isn’t a good way to promote genocide)

https://derpibooru.org/images/649178 (Seems to have the same amount of effort as most caption memes. Again, might be rule 0 but I think an earth pony saying to gas earth ponies is satire of nazis)

Hmm, that is odd as well, I think the Flutterbuse one might’ve been a mixup of rule number. We had issues with not clearly communicating rule numbers that have since been resolved. The mlp-tan one I think is the wrong description of which part of the rule (most likely deleted cause no apparent pony relation with them being humans), but regardless, it’s rather tenuous.  
The “Gas Earth ponies, make Aryanne proud” one I think for sure is Rule 0 (and 3), by the way.

Ohhh, I’ve been wondering why the art dried up lately. So mods used nazi imagery as an excuse to go full nazi on censorship? nice irony. hope it was worth ruining your site.
