The only negative expression of upvoting that springs to mind is someone trying to game their way into getting one of the art badges based on number of upvotes, but that’s pretty easily caught for mods and the offender would just get A Stern Talking-To instead of those badges.
Wouldn’t that be cough cough Tyranny?

Well then. I was wrong. I misunderstood something a mod said a long time ago and then imagined things, and drove this discussion off-topic. I’ll try to push it back on-topic.

Allowing voting using the API would be disastrous. If you only allow upvoting, people will complain about not being able to downvote. If you allow downvoting, you already know what will happen.

I’m not gonna say anything about Official Notions on this but actual indiscriminate upvoting (i.e. upvoting every image you see or every image you see you don’t outright viscerally hate) is harmless as far as potential for harrassment or site system abuse/gaming goes.
If anything, if someone is happy enough with everything they come across on the site to upvote a large majority of it, one could suggest that person is doing filtering right.

There is no rule against indiscriminately upvoting images.
There isn’t? I could have sworn I’ve read, more than once, a mod saying that indiscriminate upvoting is also bad. Or am I imagining it?
I actually used to limit, at one point, how many images I was upvoting daily because I had read about it being bad and I was afraid I’d get banned. I swear I’m not making this up.

i’ve definitely seen people with hundreds of thousands of faves who fave every image so idk how forbidden it is.
As a result of all that stuff I linked below, the rule is: Do not indiscriminately downvote images based on their tags and/or content. Instead, filter content you do not wish to see. There is no rule against indiscriminately upvoting images.
solution: delete downvotes /hj
Wouldn’t that be cough cough Tyranny?

I’m not in a position of authority on this, but I guess that while indiscriminate upvoting is technically forbidden, the mods are very unlikely to really care about a positive action that much (there’s even a hotkey for it, but not for downvoting). But they do care about mass downvoting (a negative action) and you’ll be in trouble if they catch you doing it.
Downvoting was actually removed once. It ended badly. You underestimate how many people demand to be able to downvote everything they don’t like, instead of simply filtering them.

@Angius
You’ve been here for 11 years, haven’t you ever paid any attention to TSP and other mods talking about how much work they have to do to bust mass downvoters? How some people create dozens, if not hundreds, of alt accounts, just to mass downvote images they refuse to filter?
Being able to vote/fave through the API would probably require the mods to vet the person first and ensure they’ve never engaged in any sort of mass downvoting or such, and then allow them to use the API to vote. It’s a feature that’s literally designed to be mass abused.
The fact that Derpi’s API allows uploads scares me enough. Voting would be disaster.
That’s just my opinion.

As someone who’s been working on mobile apps, slideshow webapps, and so on, the one thing that’s sorely missing is the ability for users to vote on and fave posts. Having API endpoints that make it possible would be swell. Even better, if they can simply be authenticated with the API key, without any need for any fancy OAuth2 flow or what have you.

SWF is never happening. It’s a dead format that should just be left dead. It has/had many, many security vulnerabilities and supporting it nowadays requires use of third party emulators (we don’t want to trash up our codebase). Legacy content can be played back by any willing person using the standalone flash player, or one of the emulators. New content should use HTML5 canvases.

.SWF Flash support for games and animations. I know this has been asked before but that was 6 years ago, perhaps the open source flash emulator Ruffle could be implemented? Security concerns? - SWF content could only be uploaded by trusted users i.e admins?

Bonus feature 3: specify a denominator search string.
The obvious way to implement this is to have a default of * as the denominator and use AND logic on the “numerator” search.
For example,
Numerator ai content, !ai generated
Denominator explicit
Does COUNT(explicit AND (ai content, !ai generated)) / COUNT(explicit) (returns the proportion of clop that is AI-assisted but not a pure AI generation).
The freeform option is to treat the numerator and denominator as independent search queries. This could be useful for determining the ratio of two tags over time. However, it’d have many more hoofguns. Namely, forgetting to restrict the numerator search by the denominator (“Why were 155% of clop images AI generations last Thursday!??!!?”) and divisions by zero.

An on-site graph generator page that takes a normal tag query/search string (like ai content or safe, -screencap) and a date range (start, end). Instead of images, it simply counts how many images match the query on every day in the range, compared to the total number of uploads on that day, and uses that matched/uploaded ratio to draw a zoomable/scrolalble graph like this (an example image ZippySqrl posted here):
Since it uses the site’s data directly, it takes deletions into account and shouldn’t suffer from the problems ZippySqrl mentions in this earlier post.
Bonus feature: a CSV export of the raw numbers containing the date, total upload count, and matched images count.
Bonus feature 2: multiple search strings, multiple overlaid graphs.

There should be a feature that automatically reports someone when they create a tag longer than 80 characters. The report should of course be invisible to the user; we don’t want to prevent vandals from outing themselves.
This is inspired by observation that very long tags are often seen when tags get vandalised, but rarely otherwise.

@Ciaran

Here you will find an example of tags and a concept of what it might look like. (Clause 3. Although all clauses have elements related to this problem)
And I want to convey to you the idea that it will be better if there is a full-fledged interface for this and not crutch methods. This will not help the site functionally, but it will make it nicer and more logical. If this function already exists, then I simply suggest adding an interface for this and placing it where it will be visible and more often used by other users. And I really don’t understand what the problem is, why you don’t understand the benefits of this solution.
I am not asking for help in solving my problem in this forum, otherwise I would have turned to another forum where I can ask for similar help, I am only offering an option on how to improve the site.
Just one as a simple example of what you are asking for.
I can offer three options, whichever one you choose)

I myself know that it is possible
Great. Please let us know when it’s available and we’ll check out your implementation.
All kidding aside, your use case is hard to parse. Can you please give an example of a tag that you want to bookmark that would be better bookmarked on the site than in your browser, or that can’t be “marked” using galleries or watch lists? Just one as a simple example of what you are asking for.

That’s right. And the ability to bookmark other users or comments would also be useful. But not the objects themselves (pictures), since they can already be saved to “Favorites”.
@Ciaran
I don’t need workarounds, I myself know that it is possible. I know well that many problems can be solved and I myself use many solutions that I consider necessary and safe.
Regarding saving images in the gallery specifically to mark them, this is a crutch(Crutch - not a complete workaround). And if you mark tags in this way, then it’s stupid, since there are many tags under each image, and how will you understand which one is the right one?
I propose to add a full-fledged solution that will be convenient for everyone and intuitive - saving tags to bookmarks.
And I offer this not only because I want to solve my problem differently, but because I want the Derpibooru site itself to become better, more convenient, and a more complete platform for easy use by users.
@Background Pony #2A5F
You’re right too.

they want to save the bookmark on the site, not in their browser
This is how I understand it.
Like TSP suggested: multiple watch lists.
It doesn’t seem it would help this use case. The point isn’t to watch for new images. And the tags on watch list page aren’t clickable, so this method is not very suitable for storing tags with the intention of visiting them later.

@Background Pony #2A5F
That’s why I suggested bookmarking search results. Like, search for the tag(s) you want to bookmark, with the sort you want, and bookmark the search result. But it sounds like that’s not what they want, or they want to save the bookmark on the site, not in their browser.
Like TSP suggested: multiple watch lists. Maybe kind of like Safari’s “tab groups”?
@MUnicorn
As a workaround, you might be able to create something like what you are asking for by finding a browser that supports all your platforms and which can do the kind of bookmarking you’re asking for.
But … in case you haven’t tried them yet, I wanted to mention that galleries might do something like what you want. You can “bookmark” images in galleries to look at them later, and you can use these to build sets of images. And these are stored on the site.

@The Smiling Pony
I believe it’s about the ability to bookmark tags. It’s like bookmarking tag pages in a web browser, except the bookmarking functionality would be provided by the site itself. Kind of like Reddit allows “saving” posts and comments, even though users could bookmark them using web browser functionality.
The stated use case is to keep track of tags that might be interesting with the intention of later coming back and fully browsing through all (or at least many) images in each tag.

Default search

If you do not specify a field to search over, the search engine will search for posts with a body that is similar to the query's word stems. For example, posts containing the words winged humanization, wings, and spread wings would all be found by a search for wing, but sewing would not be.
