Notoriously Divine Tagger - Consistently uploads images above and beyond the minimum tag requirements. And/or additionally, bringing over the original description from the source if the image has one. Does NOT apply to the uploader adding several to a dozen tags after originally uploading with minimum to bare tagging.
Best Artist - Providing quality, Derpibooru-exclusive artwork
Fine Arts - Two hundred uploads with a score of over a hundred (Safe/Suggestive)
Economist -
Cool Crow - "Caw!" An awesome tagger
The Power of Love - Given to a publicly verified artist with an image under their artist’s tag that has reached 1000 upvotes
Equality - In our state, we do not stand out.
Magnificent Metadata Maniac -
Birthday Cake - Celebrated MLP's 7th birthday
Perfect Pony Plot Provider - Uploader of 10+ images with 350 upvotes or more (Questionable/Explicit)

Idea is to put all knowledge about sites ("1st place" sources — not boorus) behavior in one single place. It may help you to understand, which sites tend to provide better quality pics.

+*ALWAYS ORIGINAL*+
Most prioritized, always provides images in original quality. In _italic_ — not 100% sure, but no cases to put it lower.
- *Aryion*;
- *Inkbunny* +(but be sure to upload not a thumbnail!)+;
- *NewGrounds*;
- *_NewTumbl_*;
- *_Patreon_* (unsure about public posts);
- *_Pillowfort_* (seems to provide originals, allows 3rd side images embed);
- *Pixiv* (but sometimes fetch receives JPG instead of PNG).

----------------------------------

+*UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS*+

+*Upon artist choice*+
Original image can be obtained, if artist allowed it in any way. Same priority, as previous, but should be checked.
- *DeviantArt* — if download explicitly allowed +(requires login and fetch does not work in this case!)+;
- *FurAffunity* — if any image dimension is larger than 1280 [spoiler](when image initially uploaded, it's compressed to JPG and 1280x1280 at most, but can be edited)[/spoiler];
- *VK* — image can be uploaded as "document", usually "parallel upload":https://vk.com/wall-171680016_1577 (click on second image).

+*Reasonable technical limitations*+
Sometimes image is present in original quality, sometimes not. It's not upon artist choice (at least, directly).
- *DeviantArt* — *sometimes* image can be zoomed in and it will result in original quality;
- *Twitter* — if naturally PNG (url edit does not count!) and if any image dimension is not equal to 1024/2048/4096;
- *Tumblr* — naturally PNG under 1280x1960 for pics with old url format and under 2048x3072 (any format) for newer.

+*"Exploits" exists*+
Not explicitly accessible, missing from UI.
- *Portfolio.commishes* — "see here":/forums/uppers/topics/about-pngs-from-portfolio-commishes-com ;
- *Tumblr* — "see here":/forums/meta/topics/report-deviantart-high-resolution-images-here-for-updating?post_id=4134935#post_4134935 — for newer pics dimensions in URL can be edited, for older — reblog + dump blog.

----------------------------------

+*NOT ORIGINAL IMAGES*+
Listed roughly in quality order (may be duplicated based on the case):
- *Twitter* — under 1024x1024, 2048x2048 or 4096x4096, JPG if no transparency;
- *DeviantArt ("exploit")* — "intermediary" exploit for older images, under 6MPx, original format — "see here":/forums/meta/topics/report-deviantart-high-resolution-images-here-for-updating?post_id=4134935#post_4134935;
- *Tumblr* (new image url format) — under 2048x3072, original format;
- *DeviantArt (""exploit"")* — thumb size upon artist choice (under 1920 pixels width), original format if thumb url edited to match — "see here":/forums/meta/topics/report-deviantart-high-resolution-images-here-for-updating?post_id=4134935#post_4134935;
- *VK* — under 2560x2160, always JPG;
- *Tumblr* (old image url format) — under 1280x1920, can be JPG if image is too large;
- *DeviantArt* — thumb size upon artist choice (under 1920 pixels width), JPG if no transparency;
- *ych.art* — under 1600x1080, crisp zoom, original format;
- *FurAffunity* — under 1280x1280, JPG if no transparency;
- *Portfolio.commishes* — width can be 700, 960, 1920px, can be upscaled, crisp zoom, always indexed PNG;
- *instagram* — somewhat under 1024-1600px, always heavily compressed JPG.
