Background Pony #33E8
@LeaveTheBronx
Uploaders originally had the ability to freely edit their Background Pony flag on the pic. It was removed for misguided "justice" reasons.

Would require Youtube-DL running on the server for each fetch. It's more complex and resource-heavy than fetching an image or a gif, due to how YouTube handles videos.
I guess staff would know best if it's a worthy tradeoff, though

It could probably be done with a service on a different server that reloads the latest copy of youtube-dl every day or so and accepts requests from the app.

But there are problems:
- Some videos will be unfetchable, since their DASH manifest will show that they have only incompatible codecs available for download, or since they are simply too large to pass validation
- Of the videos that are not fetchable, a subset might be perfectly feasible to fetch at a lower resolution, but automatic format selection could transparently degrade the video quality instead of rejecting a lossy conversion
- If the user is forced to explicitly pick an (audio,video[,sub]) format tuple, they may not know precisely what they're getting

If moderation action deletes the most recent post/comment, would it be nice if it "unbumped" the thread? Phrased differently, sort by most recent valid comment.
Background Pony #8601
Ability to watch your own anonymous comments to keep track what mad shit you've spoke and where you've commented used anon?
Background Pony #2A5F
Feature 1:
Thumbnail embeds of removed images should not turn into text (>>123t and such), but instead should show a dedicated "image deleted" spoiler image that can be clicked to go to the deleted image page (and e.g. see tags).

Feature 2:
If the image being deleted is used as an example of a tag, whoever is responsible for maintaining tag descriptions should be notified so it can be replaced with another image.

Inspired by the broken example in the description of First Base (character) .

While we're on the subject of broken tag descriptions, I'd like to request that 12 OC tags have their descriptions nuked.

While we're on the subject of things broken by deleted images, it would be appreciated if staff had the option to retain comments on deleted images.

clopfic in the comments and similar tags should not have their comments deleted merely because the artist had a falling out with this site and issued a DNP.

How about you make it so that you have to register to post things on this website? We've been allowing guests on this site for far too long now and I think we should put a stop to this.

Why do you feel the need to do so?

And please remember that many background ponies are actually registered members posting anonymously.

Background Ponies were a mistake and anonymous posters are cowards afraid of being held accountable in public for their crapulous opinions; posting anything or making any metadata updates should require an account.

Ah the perennial "ban the BP" debate. BP allows people to comment on images or talk about ideas that they might not be comfortable associating with in a public way. The serious fetish discussion on the forums is a good example of that. It also allows artists to talk with other users without being swamped by "lol u suck" or "draw me request!!!" spam. Not everyone wants a consistent public persona following them across the site.

That sort of spam is against site rules anyway, whether on the forums, comments, or DMs.

Unfortunately when you are logged in, every metadata update is publicly attributed to you. This means anyone on the Internet can see that I have tagged some NSFW images. Now, this was because these NSFW images bypassed my filters and I was adding rating tags, body part tags, etc. to make my filters work properly. While I was at it, I also added missing tags like solo. But people might not know that or care about it. They will probably just say that I enjoy weird porn.

So now I usually tag such pictures while being logged out.

>inb4 who cares?
Right now? Probably no one. But in the future I (or others) might become a more public figure like a politician, CEO, activist, writer, etc. And in the future Derpibooru might be hacked and all the accounts, their actions and email addresses might be made public.

Why the Tartarus would you use a recognizable name to log into a horsey image board? For that matter, I constantly forget that most people only have one e-mail address they use and own no domain names for alternate addresses.

BPs are also useful for RP accounts when they’re OOC.

It's not a recognizable name and the email address is my spam email for registering on websites. But on some websites where I registered with the same email, I have recognizable names or even personal data.
