The minimum and maximum score options, in your settings page, are being deprecated in favor of complex filters.


These settings are a regular source of confusion for users and moderators alike, who often inadvertently forget they have the setting enabled, are made entirely redundant by complex filter expressions, and are an unnecessary layer of complexity in our code.

In order to facilitate the transition, here are guidelines for how to convert your score filters into complex filters:

– If you don’t want images with a score higher than 500 to be displayed, you would add this to your complex filter: score.gt:500
– If you don’t want images with a score lower than 25 to be displayed, you would add this to your complex filter: score.lt:25

These options will be removed in approximately a week from now. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.

They take a little more effort to put it in, and it reduces places to check for why images aren’t showing up to one (a common problem is "I’m on the Everything filter, but I still don’t see this image!").

An Artist Who Rocks - 100+ images under their artist tag
A Really Classy Artist - 250+ images under their artist tag
Best Artist - Providing quality, Derpibooru-exclusive artwork
A Really Hyper Artist - 500+ images under their artist tag

But isn’t UI more comfortable for non-software engineer user than writing text queries? Citation from site developer:

And couldn’t this transition be transparent (if the UI is illogical at current state or too difficult/annoying to maintain)? Like, replace filter to (OLD filter) AND score.gte:<old ui setting> with some shortcuts for empty/trivial filters

I didn’t even know you could rank by score (which I’m guessing means the net amount of up/down votes)

I didn’t even know it existed.

Very few people knew those settings existed, which has been problematic as on a regular basis, someone accidentally sets them, then forgets they’re there, and suddenly a lot of images stop showing up.

The overwhelming majority of users don’t even use this setting. This is something left over from the site’s earliest days, back before complex filtering existed and users could only have one filter. Most people do not know that setting’s even there, and even fewer use it.

These settings have been a problem though as people occasionally stumble upon them by accident, set them to something, and then ask why images stop showing up. It’s also so old that moderators don’t even have the ability to see if a user has such settings set, which makes supporting such incidents more difficult.

Reeeeeespect each other.
I always wondered why the score filters in the settings page were necessary. I didn’t think that they would ever be removed, but it’s a sensible decision.

Isn’t it discriminatory to less popular artists tough?
There are many good pictures that get very low rating due to the fact that barely anybody sees it.
Won’t this change make so less popular artists will get even lower rating per image?
