Is it normal to get NSFW ads on SFW threads/images?
Becuase i was browsing one of the SFW threads and the ad banner at the bottom kept showing ads for NSFW art packs

If it’s not an site rule then one of you mods are in trouble for banning me from the site for no reason at all last week.
Wrong. That’s clearly an site rule now because someone banned me from Derpibooru when I noticed that my animated gifs and normal gifs aren’t showing up in the comment sections after I posted them.
If it’s not an site rule then one of you mods are in trouble for banning me from the site for no reason at all last week.
Please be clear: were you banned or were you able to post comments with images hidden? These are not the same. A ban would mean you could not interact with the site at all.
One Derpibooru user told me that ‘Only Registered Derpibooru users can post those gifs on Derpibooru now.’
I didn’t see anything in the site rules about that so if it is a site rule now then you mods need to update the site rules about that right now.
The FAQ would probably be the right place for it, as it’s not really a rule; trying to include an image when posting an anonymous comment isn’t something that’ll get you in trouble.
It was announced in this thread: Approval Queue and User Verification and had a big alert across the top of the site for maybe a week (like the ones that are there right now about the collabs).
I agree, it should definitely be added to one of the site docs.

Don’t lie to the anons, mod. That’s supposedly an site rule now even thorough I see nothing in the site rules that says, ‘Anon users can’t post images and gifs in the comments anymore.’
That post was 2 years ago and in response to the question “I’m curious as to whether it’s possible to restrict anonymous comments only, particularly in cases of off-topic posts, such as in >>2383017, where one background pony refuses to take ‘no’ for an answer”.
There is still no way to do what that person was asking to have done. Nor in my opinion should there be any form of automated checking for ‘off topic posts’ or having the site itself look for people ‘refusing to take no for an answer’.
That’s just stupid.
As proof that you’re misunderstanding the situation is that you are anonymous, and you’re posting on the site. The only restriction you are facing is that you can’t link or imbed off site images.
@Background Pony #8135
You weren’t banned because of any images you tried to post in comments.
You were banned for posting off-topic tirades about what you think the rules should say on images, and posting equally off-topic “I’m leaving the site forever” and “This user has left Derpibooru” rants on images.
As for whether this stuff should be in the rules or not, I don’t know how it would even fit there. It isn’t a “rule”, like “don’t be a Karen”. It’s more a statement of the site’s UI and use cases. Maybe the FAQ is the place for it.
PS: I thought you’d left. Why would you post a giant public “fuck all of you I’m leaving forever” and storm out the door only to come back and demand a higher level of service as soon as your ban ends?
Setting aside your Karen persona, if you think the rules should be changed, or if you want to complain about not being able to link to off site images, use the Site & Policy forum - not comments on images.
@Background Pony #699F
Yeah - adding it to the FAQs might be best. Short of actually creating some sort of user documentation for the site’s UI and use cases.

Still with 3 open reports (one has been “in-progress” for like a week and I dunno why, a similar report had been closed same-day just beforehand);
Could (NSFW) >>2856024, >>2856053, >>2864349, >>2808288, >>2864976, >>2864982, >>2868490 (deleted) and >>2869198 (deleted) be checked under Rule #3, please?
(NSFW) >>853129 also strikes me as “obligatory pony”.
(safe) >>2866249 and >>2867895 (deleted) more “obligatory pony”.

Notoriously Divine Tagger - Consistently uploads images above and beyond the minimum tag requirements. And/or additionally, bringing over the original description from the source if the image has one. Does NOT apply to the uploader adding several to a dozen tags after originally uploading with minimum to bare tagging.

I can’t find what I saw, but imagine if an image said 1 comment and you scolled down to see the comments and there was nothing.
It was a recent image I saw a few hours ago. It had 1 comment but showed nothing except a small blue box but with no text or profile.

@Cosmas-the-Explorer
There’s a few cases where that happens. Sometimes it’s a migration issue, usually caused by legacy issues from BoR. Other times it might have been a comment that we had to hard delete. That’s why I asked if you had an example, so I could look to see what it was.

Hmmm … there ARE profiles that do not show as any kind of text on the site, and are really just a blank space as far as a human can see - and a small blue box might have been them trying to post an image that was blocked by the host site …
So, I can imagine a case where you might see something that looks like that.

Would a mod please see what’s up with my report suggesting that a dedupe should have been performed in the opposite way that it was? The report has been “in progress” for about 14 days, yet it strikes me as something that should be both simple to decide and simple to execute (if decided).

Just wondering, can text links be placed in reports, like this? I tried to do it before but they always appear like [this](www . derpibooru. org/this).
I wonder if that’s just a feature that reports don’t have yet, but comments and PMs do.
Sorry for so many edits it kept automatically linking my example 🤷

They look goofy in the short view of the report that you see. But when we open the report it is fully rendered and blossoms forth into a beautiful and awe inspiring display of complexity wrapped in a simple and functional interface.
So, the effort of creating the links is DEEPLY appreciated by those of us processing the reports.
Even if all that’s seen in the ‘short version’ of the report is just a string of gobblygoop.
