Just because someone failed in the past, that means that everyone in the future will fail to? That's not a good way to look at things…

I believe there's three alternative sites in the works. Rainbooru is looking pretty promising. It's a bit rough, but it's still young and the guy working on it seems to be making great development progress.

I can't say I have the highest hopes for the other two though, simply because they're just reusing Derpibooru's own software, Philomena. While Philomena is a lot more stable now than it was when it first launched, it still requires some pretty regular maintenance. If you don't have someone deeply familiar with the software maintaining it, there's gonna be downtime, search results are eventually gonna get fucked, etc. Since Rainbooru's running their own software, their dev is going to be much more familiar with it, meaning they'll be much better suited to resolve any issues that come up, etc.

But if the people going that route are willing to put in the time learning the ins and outs of Philomena, reverse engineering it to figure out what does what and how everything works, and so on, they can be successful. Philomena is probably the best booru software available, it just has a heavy technical learning curve (especially since it's written in a comparatively obscure language)

Besides, what's the issue with competition? If Derpibooru doesn't want to host something and someone else is willing to host it, isn't that a win for everyone?

Mods nominate and vote on featured images. It's a "supply and availability" thing mostly — there's one image featured every three days, and during that time span there's about 2500 images uploaded.

All I can say is keep creating art — the quality of your art is definitely good enough to be considered for featured. It's just a matter of there being a lot of images/artists that deserve to get featured, and very few slots available. I think you could probably get there some day.

Passwords are hashed using an extremely strong, computationally expensive one-way hashing algorithm. There's absolutely no way to determine what your password is. You can request a password reset on the login form. Just make sure your email address is correct — I've seen a lot of people having login issues because there was a typo in their email address.

Go to edit your filter, and below both tag lists, there should be a button that says "plain editor". Click that and it will show all your tags as a list of text that you can just "select all" and then "copy". Then go to your new account, create a new filter/edit an existing one, toggle plain editor again, and paste the tag list there.

@Luna
Converting to a public filter would not change ownership. Only the account that "owns" the filter would be able to modify the tags, which would be a pain in the ass every time they wanted to add another one.

That's an idea! Instead of banning people, we could just add an option to set the site's font to Comic Sans for problematic users.

2. The tags' visual style isn't borderless, in fact they are the exact opposite of that.


To clarify, this is what I meant by "borderless" (screenshot from a development site):


Compare that to Derpibooru, where there's a brightly colored border matching the number area's color surrounding the entire tag:

Muscle memory? You are aware that you can hover over/tap on any part of the tag, right? The + just indicates there's more there, but the entire tag should trigger the menu.

Also, for the record, I like the new tag style. I'm not sure if I like Luna's original (borderless) design or the current (bordered) design more. Both styles look nice. But I think this is nicer than the old tags overall.

Yeah, that should be fine

@Panko Pai
Please leave such questions to site staff, just in case there's any kinda edge cases or unique circumstances that may affect an answer. Usually that kinda stuff is fine, but there always can be some specific reason that may not be widely known, and I'd hate to cause confusion. Thanks!

Again, it depends on the website. Advertising provides revenue, but in order for a site to remain viable, the revnuew needs to exceed expenses.

Derpibooru's operating expenses are relatively low as we're a not-for-profit volunteer-ran site. Additionally, we have Patreon supporting the site as well.

However, other sites that operate for-profit and have paid staff have significantly higher operating expenses, and thus more of a challenge maintaining the necessary revenue to keep running.

Are you talking about Derpibooru in specific, or sites in general?

Derpibooru charges a flat $40/month for advertisements. The first two weeks of advertising are free as well, so half the ads we run don't even pay us anything.

Other sites largely depends on the ad publisher and technology — some are based on clicks, some are based on impressions, some on overly complex formulas, etc. There's no single direct answer.
