The End wasn't The End - Found a new home after the great exodus of 2012

@DanielTepesKraus
@The Smiling Pony
-I'd like to see one for artists. Even if editing screencaps doesn't count me in for it, I still think users like Zincy and Braeburned should definitely get extra props for being, well, artists.
-I'd also like to see one with Luna's face called "Never Sleeps", for users who just seem to be online all the time.
-How about one called "Refugee", for users who fled here from good old Ponibooru.

Seconding these, especially the "Refugee" badge.

The sockpuppet badge would fall under the duck for bad behavior. Having multiple badges for various types of bad behavior sounds like a bad idea, because it would encourage people to get all of them.

I don't know; most samefags go out of their way to not be caught for their samefaggotry. I agree people would go out of their way to get most bad awards, but not the samefag one. When you're trying to cause a ruckus with samefaggotry and you're outed, your troll cred hits zero and everyone points and laughs. Most elegantly displayed by Bhallspawn/TaraCallie/Various BP Ponies here

More than anything, it would be a handy means of outing people who use sockpuppetry to troll. I know people use multiple accounts for legit reasons like maintaining different filters or whatever; this badge ain't for them. It'd be for ousting guys who try to circlejerk. Like you'd see Duckinator and TotallyNotDuckinator playing off of each other, yet both would have the little sockpuppet icon, so people would just laugh at them. Drama averted. Hopefully.

Eh, this is close one. First comment — June 19 2012. Last activity — May 31 2014. Tough luck.

Instead of badges, can we have Hats?

Tradeable Hats?


this idea is brilliant, then we can start setting up a trade system, and people can then earn UNUSUAL BADGES trough pone crates.

brilliant!!!!!

It's from the site's creation up to the PB close-down announcement. It's specifically for the people that came to the site before eco/seth directed people here.

Will likely make another one to cover everyone that joined in the two weeks after the PB announcement, but won't take activity into account due to how many it'd cover. Also not sure on icon or name. I was thinking something more positive sounding than "refugee", like "settler" or something…

Slightly related, does anyone know the exact moment when Ponibooru was locked down? We all know the date (Sunday June 17 2012), but who knows the time? It was working at 14:15 UTC because that's when I downloaded the last image from there (that image is not on Derpi).

My browser's history says I posted some comment and browsed the site normally around 14:45 UTC, but by 15:16 UTC (confirmed using a screenshot) it had been locked down. (I have a faint recollection about F5'ing the front page around 15:00-15:05 UTC and there was no lockdown message yet, but this is probably a false memory; due to the way Firefox's history works I cannot confirm this.)

My first Derpi comment was posted at 15:34, so I don't qualify for the "since the beginning" badge.

As A Ponibooru refugee myself, I second this (and think that the badge system itself is a neat idea)

I have no idea when I joined, but I'm reasonably sure it was at some point after Ponibooru went read-only. I remember spending a while figuring out whether I wanted to make an account here or not.

Badges?




But seriously, this sounds like a fun idea. Maybe an upload-based badge that wouldn't encourage spamming would be something like an award for having your lowest scored image being above a certain value. So you could have an "OP is not a duck" badge (or something with a better name) if all your uploads have a positive score, and a "Quality Poster" badge if all of your uploads have at least 50 points.
