The overhead of doing this would be huge. If you dislike something about an image (particular artist or something, or maybe just a character) then filter the tag.
 
That’s the thing, though. Not everything with a particular tag I want filtered. Lets say I come across a pic of Twilight that I don’t like, I could filter Twilight Sparkle but of course that would block all of the other results as well. Could I block a tag more specific to the image in question? Yes, however even that would block some good results with that tag. Plus some images are not tagged properly or otherwise could have the tag that was filtering it out deleted.

Okay - let me put it another way. Filtering per-image is insane, because once you start down that rabbit hole we have to track every image ID for every image you want hidden. Then when we make a query on your behalf for images, we have to pass those image IDs to our ‘search engine’. Say you hide 10 images, okay, that’s fine. Say you hide 100, things start to get slow because we’ve got this huge array of image IDs we have to pass around everywhere. Say you hide 5,000 - and let’s face it, people would - we’ve got people with tag lists of hundreds of tags hidden. Now your page loads take 10 seconds server-side to process. In fact, maybe 1% of the site’s users page loads take this long, with another 5% taking around a second.
 
Long before that point the entire site has broken because page loads taking over about 0.5 seconds server-side for common operations like loading image pages mean that the servers spend all their time thinking rather than going “OK, here’s your page, next!” and a queue starts to form, and eventually that queue gets so big the servers can’t handle things within 60 seconds of a request coming in and you get 502s/404s and the site is unusable.
 
This isn’t hypothetical. This is literally why most of the outages we have happen - we deploy something but it slows things down enough to be problematic. We try and avoid these problems with testing but sometimes we fail. Back in the days when we were first starting Derpibooru we had this issue all the time.
 
So, that’s why we’re not going to do what you ask - because we want the site to work for everyone. Derpibooru manages over 150 requests every single second most evenings. If we were only dealing with 50-100 users and a request every few seconds, it’d be a different conversation.

At which point they’d be largely useless and we’d still suffer a site-wide (ie even if you have none set) performance hit for having to keep track of them and include them in image queries.

What Clover means to say is that there’s a reason no imageboard out there is letting you filter single images, and our imageboard, the one running on a threaded shoestring budget, is certainly not going to be the one to start.
 
Furthermore, if there’s an image you dislike so much that somehow doesn’t already fall into something you’d hide or spoiler, then, erm, maybe don’t click it again? Or don’t look at the thumbnail? I don’t know, maybe I’m jaded by how I have to load every image ever uploaded on the site and stare at it for a good minute+ to make sure the tags are correct, but I’m really struggling to see why you’d want to block individual images, especially when they just scroll past in a few hours, at most.

Also, I really can’t emphasize this enough. We’re running on the absolute cheapest services we can get because the site has next to no income. And by next to no I mean once a month a fandom advertiser will donate enough to cover a fifth of our monthly costs, and one or two guys will pitch in a handful of dollars, while everything else is out of pocket (specifically, my pocket). As much as we’d wish, servers don’t run on happiness and good thoughts, so anything moderately server intensive just can’t happen.
 
As a rule of thumb, any feature that revolves a lot around user settings and persistent, fine grain options and customization, especially involving images, just isn’t going to happen.

Can you add the image ID to the image info (currently image size and tags) when hovering the cursor over a thumbnail? It would be a little more convenient for dupe reports when the dupetector fails, and also for people who ask for certain images.

You can block individual images with ad blockers and content filters. Just block the thumbnail. It’s not a perfect solution, but it works. You won’t see the image, but the link is still there in case you want to open it. Plus it won’t overload the servers.
 
Naturally, you should configure your ad blocker to show ads on Derpibooru, but on the same time make it block the images you don’t want to see.
 
I believe this could be solved client-side with a Greasemonkey script. The BORED extension already exists and works, so the filtering could be added to it.
 
Just an idea.

Don’t take changelog messages too seriously. Whenever there’s a backend change of any kind, Clover usually writes a “grab your butts!” type commit message. Which is shortly followed by “REVERT, REVERT!” or “Fixes everything, Jesus”.

If adblock is installed and running, just right-click the image and you should have an adblock context menu option, which’ll pop up a window asking what to block. Just be sure you select only the image (which is not the default option).

Could the “image deleted” page list the original artist and possible source for the image, if they exist (and it’s reasonable to list them)? Again today I lost an image, because I saw the thumbnail but the image was already gone when I tried to open it, and I have no idea where to find the original. It’s infuriating when an artist DNPs their work, and leaves absolutely no way to find it again.
 
(I think the image I was looking for is/was 355879, but I’m not 100% sure. It’s the only one “missing” from the front page right now.)
