Yup, I supposed adding that to my filters would work, I doubt there would be any pictures that aren't non-MLP OCs that I would miss. Thanks for the tip.

While I do worry the "grandfathering" of non pony content that has snuck in for long enough to be exploitable I doubt it'll lead to intentional abuse of the system.

I think I figured out what #16AF was taking about.

For reference: if a featured image is hidden by filters, the Featured Image box is absent from the front page. If a featured image is hidden by the eye icon, the next most recent Featured Image is displayed on the front page.

If, for some reason, you've hidden (via the eye icon, not via filters) every featured image back to the point where one was deleted, you'll see this:

…and, unlike for non-deleted images, the eye icon does nothing on a deleted image.

(I can only guess #16AF really likes having some old featured image present on the front page…?)

Speaking of filters: while making the response above, I looked through the rules and FAQs pages — and didn't see anything about how to use filters. The FAQs barely mention them. The rules mention "a tag filtering system" and "you should add the appropriate tags to your filter" in Rule #4 of course, and some other places — but none of them hotlink to an explanation of how to make use of them or even to the filters page, which itself has a pretty scant couple of paragraphs mostly explaining what filters do but not anything about how to edit your own in practice, not even the most basic starting point of hovering on a tag when viewing an image and clicking to hide or spoiler it.

The site needs a filtering guide, and it needs to be discoverable in the site help.

… combinations of tags rather than any of them individually, as the filter system has no support for such and in my experience there's an extremely low rate of use for niche combination tags, to the point where their existence is rarely considered. Though I suppose being able to filter images with both "Pride" and "Politics" but not those with just one or the other would capture the whole of the issues I have in this matter …

Not a mod, but I can help you with that. In the nav bar, if you click on "Filters" and then "Edit this filter" (assuming you already have one created — otherwise, "Copy and Customize" one of the presets):

The sections "Complex Spoiler Filter" and "Complex Hide Filter" are text fields you can write in. Each line works separately as if it was a search, and acts upon the results. For example, if you type pride, politics on its own line in the Complex Hide Filter field, images with both pride and politics tags will become hidden. That's because it works like a search — using a comma works like AND, requiring everything to be present together to be a result.

(You should see my complex filter — it's over 600 words long, if you don't count the excessive section that only exists because of a lack of "canon character" supertag…)

Please note the phrase "Do not post comments complaining about the theme of the image."

And, in all honesty, a lot of the stuff you posted that we deleted would not have been ok anywhere on the site, except perhaps in the Politics containment zone


Again, the rule specifically bases this on the ability to filter. "To help you avoid seeing images you may not wish to see, we have a tag filtering system, which allows for hiding of images that contain specific tags." The text of the rule is fundamentally tied to site functionality that, as near I can tell, does not properly apply to the scenario.

If politics is so routinely a source of viciousness that it requires a containment thread named after pony hell, then why does the Politics tag have all of ACAB, BLM, and Proud Boys implying it, and literally not a single thing to do with LGBT when the politics of it are where these issues constantly come up? Why are open political messages in pictures even allowed in the first place if there's that level of lockup on talking about it and that shallow a tagging pool for the issues people have with it?

And why is this not mentioned or even vaguely implied anywhere in the rules if there is in fact a containment thread for politics and comments on political images directly relevant to the topic discussed are not suitable? How is an image of a latex-wearing aggressively butch Rainbow Dash with "I'm not a freak, you just haven't found your kink yet" and multiple examples of Pride iconography wholly unrelated to the subject of how to have LGBT people seem normal?

Is it really that it is utterly and comprehensively against the rules to criticize the theme of an image, in any way, or that there is a total forbiddance of political discussion outside a select few forum threads? If so, the rules need to actually be clear that such is the rule, rather than tying the forbiddance of criticizing theme to the filter function or having wholly unmentioned forbidden topics. By having "do not post comments complaining about the theme of the image" after specifying to filter them, the rule implies the relation in question. When filters don't work, it's not really a stretch to say that a follow-up statement does not apply, because what it is following doesn't.

Of particular note is the not-relevant-in-this-case matter of taking issue with rarely seen combinations of tags rather than any of them individually, as the filter system has no support for such and in my experience there's an extremely low rate of use for niche combination tags, to the point where their existence is rarely considered. Though I suppose being able to filter images with both "Pride" and "Politics" but not those with just one or the other would capture the whole of the issues I have in this matter and leave out the simple "ponies holding and/or in front of various colored stripes".

If you think the site needs a new tag to handle the set of images that you're talking about, here is the tagging forum where you can propose a new tag.

But you could also just filter the "Pride" tag and avoid all of the images that you've been complaining on lately, or click that "Hide" button if you don't like the theme of an image, so maybe a special new tag isn't really needed.

As had been explained at rather sizable length in the comments on the all of two images in question, it's about the implication of violent response to opposition and mentioning a dislike of just throwing a pride flag background because of that having no real point, not about Pride intrinsically.

And what exactly do you think the response to me wanting a "calling for violence" tag or some such for the specific purpose of slapping it on a rather narrow subset of Pride images would be? Do you really think I'd get productive conversation on the matter with any level of honesty as to why I want such a tag? Particularly given that there appears to be such an intensity of vitrol around politics as to require a dedicated containment thread?

Looking over the Pride tag, I can find three downvotes I've left on the latest surge of images (because there is for some reason not a filter for downvotes you've left), with two being for the messaging and the third being for truly awful color balancing (the latter of which has had the downvote removed because it appears to have been fixed). It is not a large block of downvotes, there are actually a few upvotes because I can in fact appreciate examples of the simple "pony with flag" Pride images even if I don't like the lack of idea behind them.

Mind you, I'm not just blankly shouting about frustration with opaqueness in site policy, I am actually beginning to populate my filter.

…Nearest stopgap to get things filtered I can think of without risking my ass by openly criticizing literally any subset of the LBGT community no matter how miniscule or actively hostile to the ordinary is filtering Politics and tossing that tag on the ones that get into slogans instead of just throwing up flags.

And, in all honesty, a lot of the stuff you posted that we deleted would not have been ok anywhere on the site, except perhaps in the Politics containment zone, regardless of tagging or the theme of the image. That's why some of your posts were also "Rule #6" — they were entirely meta to the artwork (discussing how people IRL should or shouldn't behave) and so were "Off Topic".

If you think the site needs a new tag to handle the set of images that you're talking about, here is the tagging forum where you can propose a new tag. But you could also just filter the "Pride" tag and avoid all of the images that you've been complaining on lately, or click that "Hide" button if you don't like the theme of an image, so maybe a special new tag isn't really needed.

Well, like I said, this OC has images here going back to 2019, and if I deleted the image you reported I'd have to look at Rule #3ing images that have been here for years, so generally speaking we tend to "grandfather in" OCs that have a long history on the site.

If that was the first time the OC had been posted here, the result would have been different.

Anyway, for this image and OCs like it, is "OC AND Barely Pony Related" in your complex filter sufficient to filter out the content you'd like to avoid?

So recently I came across this picture >>2631570 and reported it as nonpony content. A mod explained the reasoning that it should stay, that its Pony enough, which is fine (not my rules anyways), but it does make me wonder if we need a tag more specific than "barely pony related" for those of us who want to filter these sorts of non-MLP OCs but not miss other actual pony content that may carry that tag. I'd personally rather not see non-MLP content on a MLP site, so a more specific tag could help with that.

If an image is not adequately tagged or sourced, please correct it yourself (when possible, report otherwise) and do not complain in a comment.

If you find something does not have a proper descriptive tag that could assist in filtering it so you're not offended, you should be adding that tag, or assisting in discussion on the forums of what sort of tag should apply to certain images.

If you don't want to assist in improving tagging, then you should at least practice some self control and learn to pass over images you find offensive, like the overwhelmingly vast majority of site users manage to do when they bump into an improperlty tagged image of rape or murder or the like. Other people shouldn't have to baby you or tolerate your tantrums.

So, what appears to be literally every post critical of the content of image 2634583 got nuked on the basis of violating Rules 4 and 6, but the rules in question have the following seemingly-relevant text:

Rule 4
Derpibooru is extremely permissive as to what we allow on this website, which means we allow images that contain themes which some may find objectionable. To help you avoid seeing images you may not wish to see, we have a tag filtering system, which allows for hiding of images that contain specific tags.

If you see images that contain themes you do not like, you should add the appropriate tags to your filter. Do not post comments complaining about the theme of the image.


Rule 6:
Do not indiscriminately downvote images based on their tags and/or content. Instead, filter content you do not wish to see.


A repeated portion of the reason for deletion is "just because you can't filter it doesn't mean you can complain about the theme", directly contradicting the reason why you aren't supposed to do such a thing. Both rule quotations are explicitly predicated on the existence of filters, that you are not to do such a thing because you are supposed to be able to filter it.

How is it against the rules when the function stated as the alternative to voiced disagreement isn't applicable? How is it against the rules when the rules say you're supposed to be filtering it, but there's no commonality of tagging the unwanted content to the point of not even being able to locate a tag to filter?

If criticism of an artwork's message when the issue had does not have a tag to filter is against the rules, why is there a comment section at all? If you're not allowed to disagree with message in a picture and are supposed to filter what you don't want to see, why are there downvotes?

The systems the site has and the rules actually written out do not seem to support the moderation action taken, because the rules specifically tie the disallowance to Filters preventing you from seeing it in the first place. By all appearances, downvotes and critical comments are meant for disliked content that doesn't have a particular tag to filter, exactly what occurred on that post.

In regards to the history of the ratings guidelines, I went over the revision history, and it appears that explicitly putting nudity where no features are actually visible ("Uncovered breasts/buttcheeks") in Suggestive happened in February 2017. Prior to this, I'm pretty sure (though my memory isn't perfect) that the "almost-visible genitals/anuses" clause captured full buttcheek nudity (on those believed to have visible bits just inside that crack) in Questionable, with the caveat that this was not always common practice, especially in cases where it was seen more as humorous in nature than sexual.
The reasoning for the change was to improve consistency and stop grouping in with bare-breasted shots things that weren't really pornographic, just saucy, and akin to what Disney would put in its PG-rated movies (at least, prior to their recent decisions involving Splash).

Hello,

I want to be able to upload images with formatted text in the description, without having to manually edit that in by myself. I have looked into 2 methods, but both have issues!

1) Using PostyBirb so it automatically handles the formatting:

This does work most of the times, since it adds formatting with uploading. However, it doesn't add the no-parse tags to the symbols that Derpibooru uses for formatting. So for example, if an included story has symbols like asterisks, or more commonly dashes, they introduce unwanted formatting in the image description!

2) I looked into this script: ClipFormat! (Userscript: comment autoformatter from clipboard)

But I can't access the script page and while I was able to get the script from a different source, it doesn't seem to work at all :c


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
