Didn’t think there were, though it does seem to be an unwritten policy to lock comments and tag/source edits on anything even remotely related to last year’s drama.
 
Relatedly, there are several images with comments locked that are missing the tag in question, all of which AFAIK are also edit locked…

comments locked down, is missing from several images that actually have comments locked, and all of them seem to have tag edits locked as well. I posted an example in the Bug Reports thread a few days ago.

Why do you want to search for images with locked comments, or search for images with locked tags?

I have never added either of those tags. If I have to lock comments or tags that is meta to the image itself.
 
It’s not a fact of the image, only to how we are responding to vandalism or rule breaking on the image’s tags or comments.

Yes, it happens all the time. Usually folks needing to focus at work or school. Just report yourself with a reason of “other” and say you’d like a temp ban and how long you’d like it to be in the text field.
 
If you want the ban lifted before the time you asked for, just come to support on discord and let us know the ban ID and we’ll lift it.
 
These kinds of bans don’t count toward escalation if you have other bans for rule breaking, they’re purely voluntary and your call.

Do DNP rules apply to hyperlinks or image embeds used in comments/forum posts?

@Background Pony #699F
If an artist has asked that their art not be posted here, including it in a post really defeats the whole purpose of the DNP, wouldn’t you agree? As for hyperlinks, that would entirely depend on the case. If someone’s done that, please report it as a possible Rule #1 and someone on duty will take a look at it.
@Wiimeiser
I don’t know why you’re making that stipulation, Rule #1 and Do Not Post rules apply regardless of the theme of the image.

My policy always was: “If it’s a blatant attempt to skirt DNP to spite the artist, delete; otherwise, it’s just an image”.
Holding every hotlinked image to rule #1 regardless of intent or context may as well lead to holding every hotlinked image to rule #3 as well and deleting any reaction image or meme or whatever in comments that isn’t pony.
