How often is the data in the tag autocomplete updated? It still doesn’t show the 2023 community collab tag at all, for example. It also says there are 5807 images tagged golden oaks library, but the tag search tool says there are 5894.

I’m wondering if it’s possible for me to take a username that’s occupied by an old, almost-untouched account. How could I go about that?

@Rare bruh
Report the profile for the reason of “Other” and ask if it might be possible for you to change your name to that profile’s name.
Someone on staff will look to see if the profile really is unused (a lot of people just use the site anon while logged on).

Yeah, wish I didn’t have to change my alias, but that name (and this current one, to a lesser extent) is cringey to me. 😅
Hey that’s fine 😁 was just kidding around a little bit ☺️
Sometimes I do that too (not the name persay, but making it fancier with special characters and such 😇)
Unrelated but slightly related - is there a chance Derpibooru will one day allow more space than 10,000 bytes on the profile description? Because I’ve had to delete special notes I’ve made in mine because it won’t save because it says the description is too long 🥺
I love noting badge achievements and other memories in there, and would be sad to have to keep removing them due to description space running out 😔

In terms of the number in one’s profile on Derpibooru: tags added or removed, source links added or edited.
As a concept in general: “data describing data”. Things like the last time a file was opened, the amounts of likes something has, etc.

referring to images/1910549, I can understand the exhaustion on how the comment thread has gone on for far too long and it did need to be shut down because of how many times ppl have asked, however I do not happen to understand how specifically my reply and explanation had been a violation to rule 6, as I was not sockpuppeting, and the anon number was not mine … nor why the anon comment had been in violation as well.

Anon comment being deleted seems odd to me, but as for yours, a part of Rule 6 with irrelevant parts strucken: “Do not spam or put off-topic content – especially fetishes or roleplay – in comments/forum posts/reports.”
Getting into detail about past controversies is rather off the topic of an art pack image (in general, images are not invitations to talk about the circumstances of their artists; there is some leeway to mention things, but it should be kept minimal because it invites arguments over old drama).

Fair enough, I’ve likely went too far in explaining.
Though I do have to note that the link to said art pack is now broken and its highly unlikely that the OP will correct it. Will the image remain as archived?

I have a question for the Admins:
If someone is spamming and aggressively sending someone PMs, is it possible to block them to get them to stop?

You should report the PM discussions. If there are multiple PM threads, please include links to each one in the same report. Staff can only access threads that they have three links for. Harassment of users is not permitted even if it happens in private.
