As someone who’s been working on mobile apps, slideshow webapps, and so on, the one thing that’s sorely missing is the ability for users to vote on and fave posts. Having API endpoints that make it possible would be swell. Even better, if they can simply be authenticated with the API key, without any need for any fancy OAuth2 flow or what have you.

You’ve been here for 11 years, haven’t you ever paid any attention to TSP and other mods talking about how much work they have to do to bust mass downvoters? How some people create dozens, if not hundreds, of alt accounts, just to mass downvote images they refuse to filter?
Being able to vote/fave through the API would probably require the mods to vet the person first and ensure they’ve never engaged in any sort of mass downvoting or such, and then allow them to use the API to vote. It’s a feature that’s literally designed to be mass abused.
The fact that Derpi’s API allows uploads scares me enough. Voting would be disaster.
That’s just my opinion.

I’m not in a position of authority on this, but I guess that while indiscriminate upvoting is technically forbidden, the mods are very unlikely to really care about a positive action that much (there’s even a hotkey for it, but not for downvoting). But they do care about mass downvoting (a negative action) and you’ll be in trouble if they catch you doing it.
Downvoting was actually removed once. It ended badly. You underestimate how many people demand to be able to downvote everything they don’t like, instead of simply filtering them.

As a result of all that stuff I linked below, the rule is: Do not indiscriminately downvote images based on their tags and/or content. Instead, filter content you do not wish to see. There is no rule against indiscriminately upvoting images.
solution: delete downvotes /hj
Wouldn’t that be cough cough Tyranny?
Educate yourself on the site’s history with just a few easy clicks!:
Significantly more can be found, but those are left for the student as a self-study exercise.

There isn’t? I could have sworn I’ve read, more than once, a mod saying that indiscriminate upvoting is also bad. Or am I imagining it?
I actually used to limit, at one point, how many images I was upvoting daily because I had read about it being bad and I was afraid I’d get banned. I swear I’m not making this up.

I’m not gonna say anything about Official Notions on this but actual indiscriminate upvoting (i.e. upvoting every image you see or every image you see you don’t outright viscerally hate) is harmless as far as potential for harrassment or site system abuse/gaming goes.
If anything, if someone is happy enough with everything they come across on the site to upvote a large majority of it, one could suggest that person is doing filtering right.

Well then. I was wrong. I misunderstood something a mod said a long time ago and then imagined things, and drove this discussion off-topic. I’ll try to push it back on-topic.

Allowing voting using the API would be disastrous. If you only allow upvoting, people will complain about not being able to downvote. If you allow downvoting, you already know what will happen.

The only negative expression of upvoting that springs to mind is someone trying to game their way into getting one of the art badges based on number of upvotes, but that’s pretty easily caught for mods and the offender would just get A Stern Talking-To instead of those badges.

holy spit it just… keeps… going

Please add ability to edit reports once submitted. This way the submitter could fix mistakes or add more info. It should slightly decrease the workload of people who handle reports, because reports would contain fewer errors and there would be less reports filed for the same issue.
For example, I have accidentally submitted an unfinished report. Fortunately I have already completed the description, but I haven’t yet selected the reason, so it got incorrectly submitted as rule #0.

Another, separate feature suggestion: send user a notification when they gain a new badge. It’s low-priority, but at the same time, probably simpler than many other proposed features.
