As we now, Derpibooru's Patreon has been suspended. They set up a few alternatives but I'm worried that a lot of people not will support them anymore because so many people are still upset with them, the site won't be able to earn money to stay open, and will eventually shut down. I know that a lot of people are still using the site and some might choose support them but at the same time they upset a lot of people and some might want to see the site die completely. Is this a legit concern or am I simply worrying too much/over thinking it?

I think most people who got very upset aren't really hugely into Derpibooru to begin with, so there's little to worry about long-term; it's just going to be an annoying month.

Do you mean Twitter, the channers,former Derpi users…? Because it doesn't simply come from one side. Even among the staff there have been people mad towards the direction of this site (who have actually stepped down).

Your definition of people could perfectly apply to everyone in the generic sense.

I think a lot of people who were upset typically weren't super active in the community more than anything. I mean, a lot of people I know who use this site were more than happy to just browse the content, and they happened to come out of the woodwork when deleting that content was being discussed.

Seems to collate with what people have guessing, wont know for certain until Derpy is done sorting through all the requests though.

derpibooru should use cryptocurrency and change their website to hosted in onion tor search

I get that you are concerned, but i highly doubt that Derpibooru is going to die/shut down, so yeah it seems to me that you are overreacting way too much to this.

Like Luna said it's just been a very stressful few months for a lot of people on the site, but everything seems to be dying down now and things seem to hopefully be getting back to normal.

Eh, with all the alternative boorus that exist now thanks to the Rule 0 drama I'm not worried at all. If the site does shut down, the staff will have only their incompetence to blame.

It says on the donation page on the sidebar

"The cost of running a site like Derpibooru is significant, and we rely on donations to help cover the site's monthly operating costs, which are well over 600 USD per month. We have never made profit from Derpibooru, and have no desire to profit from running the site."

i hope it shuts down, there already multiple alternatives ready to take its place.

Assuming those alternatives have no possibility of ever being shut down of course, if Derpi is gone and the management of all the alternatives sprung up in its place find out running a booru is no small feat then we might end up with everyone losing in the end. The more sites the better, let's not wish for any of them to be disappeared, pretty please.

And Derpibooru is still the most active of all the pony image sites, just based on comment frequency and forum activity alone. It's nice to have choices but even with all the recent controversy and hand-wringing Derpi is still king by a mile.
Background Pony #FE66
There's enough money for the rest of the year afaik. Most of the donators aren't even aware of the recent events probably, so I think they'll be donating anyway. If not, offer them some badges for money, Derpi users loves badges.

@merchent343
Just comments, history and images are already covered by the altboorus.

I don't care about the Derpibooru "community". I never have. All I want is an imagebooru that doesn't submit to the whims of the SJWs.

In any case, I doubt Derpibooru is going down anytime soon, no matter how much certain people would wish that were the case. Not only is there enough money to pay the servers for the next few months, there are also still enough people to donate to Derpibooru. There aren't as many people who care about the whole Nazi picture debate as you might think.

Fortunately, quite a few people do care about authoritarian censorship and selective rule enforcement, as that has a much larger impact on a community than one OC. This weird belief that "the community" would or will disappear is misguided as well; the people with a passion for the show will naturally gravitate somewhere else, their fans will follow, and it will be the same group as it was before.

That's what struck me as odd too. Like, even if this site kicks the bucket (which is honestly unlikely), the community wouldn't be bothered too much.
Hell, last I checked ponybooru seemed to grow in popularity very nicely, despite the the screeching of certain individuals on the bird app.

Get woke, go broke.
Derpi administration should have known better than to get involved in politics in the first place, whatever happens now is just what they will have to live with.

Good news is that derpi looks less and less necessary by the day so I would say that regardless of whether or not this site dies your fears are misplaced.
