I don’t know how I’d feel about allowing users to tag their own avatars, especially when it comes to ratings, that’s just asking for trouble. How about something more like e621, where you can specify an image number and it shows the thumbnail as an avatar? Not only would that automatically follow filters and have oversight on the tags, it could also provide a link so people could see the image in more detail, and it would only be serving thumbnail-sized images.

Of course, I’d prefer to keep the other safe-only, user-uploaded avatar system we have now alongside that. Not every avatar is pony-related, and I’d rather not inundate the site with uploads just to be used for personal avatars if we don’t have to.

@wumbl3
That implies a very narrow definition of "safe for work." I’ve seen plenty of furry art that wouldn’t bat an eye at a workplace other than the fact that it has an anthropomorphic animal.

"Safe for work" tends to have a large grey area, anyway.

A preview option on the upload page’s description box would be super useful, so I don’t have to keep copypasting lines to comments to preview the syntax before upload.

If ability to specify images as avatars with filtering is added, please also add ability to block users (or at least hide their customizations utterly). I have zero interest in things that can and will end on some users’ avatars.

Unless filtered avatars are not shown at all, instead of being spoilered like filtered embeds. That would work too.

@Barhandar
I think having the current system as a backup would work – it might take a little more effort on the code side, but defaulting to a SFW avatar rather than serving a spoiler image would keep from turning everything into a spoilered thumbnail if your filter is restrictive enough. If we were going to have it as an alternative anyway, why not?

@WingbeatPony
I would suggest that if an avatar was filtered, it replaces it with the current autogenerated pony icons, maybe based on the first four letters of the username like it would be for background pony hashes, rather than a spoiler image.

@Wesley Foxx
I had the same thought, actually. It’d reduce the chances of someone slipping a nasty image into the user-uploaded slot unnoticed because their other avatar would rarely be filtered, too. (Did that make sense? It made sense in my head.) I just didn’t want to double-post, and by the time I got back to the thread, other things had come up.

And how does that relate to what I’m suggesting? Sure some scripts exist out there that could potentially breach your privacy rights. It doesn’t mean that all activity tracking scripts are like that…

As a Tor user I have to assume that all activity tracking scripts are privacy-invasive.

You can almost get away with blocking scripts on the site. Basic account stuff, filter selection, and navigation all works. Browsing image pages does not work. Comments with embedded images do not work. Posting content is not supported and not planned to be supported for users blocking scripts.

However, script-less support for major site functionality is something I usually think about when working on the site, so, you are not entirely ignored.

Speaking of which, have I mentioned how much I love the update you made to comment loading? It is so much nicer than that slow-ass AJAX we were using.

Not to mention that being able to keep track of recent activity server-side is more than sufficient for something like this, and listening for user input in-browser is a completely unnecessary level of detail; even if the activity itself isn’t being logged or intercepted (the only good reason to delve this deep) there’s no reason why it needs to be tracked on a time resolution this fine.

Never mind that we don’t need this feature in the first place. Derpibooru does not rely on realtime awareness like Steam or chatrooms. And personally, I think the activity trackers on profile pages already provide more information on other people than I’ll ever need.

Online/Offline indicators are completely unnecessary. I can’t really see any benefit to having them beyond curiosity. Not to mention the privacy implications and additional server load.
