I made accounts on Ponybooru and Twibooru. Twibooru is my go-to backup just for the relative lack of bullshit. Ponybooru looked promising, but while I was of course on board with the whole “how about we don’t ban all depictions of this character, even ones meant for entertainment and not agenda-pushing, over an overblown moral panic” thing, most of what I hear from that community is not really all that appealing to me in the end.
Don’t care a whole lot about Rainbooru, personally. Ponerpics’ whole “copying Derpibooru IDs” thing is handy but I think it reflects Ponybooru too much to interest me. (And Manebooru I just hate ofc lmao)
Truthfully I’m mostly just here now, hoping that things never blow up so pointlessly again. This place is stable for now and I was mostly okay with the direction it chose in the end. I don’t have a huge problem with the end result (at least in terms of being fine with Derpibooru itself), I’m just disappointed it ever happened - and lost a lot of respect for multiple artists for the hypocrisy, vitriol and authoritative behavior I saw during the fiasco.
