Ask the Mods Important Site Questions (V2)

Given your lack of specification on your request I would safely assume you want stuff like this erased from here:
 
 

 

 

 
All of them which, in my opinion, don’t have anything offensive or that should be erased. The first two are cute and the last one it’s actually pretty informative. Yet, given your request, all of them should go off because they’re nazi.
 
And no, please don’t call me neo-nazist, I would gladly report and ask for deletion of an artwork that (For example) has an schutze kicking a jew, it’s offensive and deserves it. But you should be more specific.
 
(Incase you’re wondering, the Schutzstaffel or SS was the paramilitary organization of the 3rd Reich, and a major key in the holocaust)

You cannot just assume that anyone who posts such ironic, edgy, and—most importantly—non-sincere images is just automatically a Nazi, Neo-Nazi or an “ally” of theirs, though.
 
That is precisely the fundamental flaw with both the logic used in your argument, and the logic used by people like you who needlessly pressured the site to make such unnecessary policy changes, as they did in 2020, in the first place.
 
In fact, it is so big of a flaw that it should absolutely compel you into reconsidering (or at least, modifying) your argument/logic.

Guys please let’s try and get back on topic, this sort of stuff is what caused the first thread to get suspended.
 
Anyway my question, are there any plans for any more badges in the future that are not related to events?  
Or are you all fine with the current amount of badges the site has to offer for now?

The following wall of text (it looks larger in editing form) is solely my opinion, based on which I operate on this question, and is not a message from whole staff team.
 
@Respectful Batpone  
Can we finally end the nazi stuff? I think today is proof enough that it deserves no quarter.
 
You need to answer a question “What do you want to achieve by banning images with “nazi” tag on derpi?” I’m gonna make an assumption and say, that you want “end nazism” in a long-term perspective. It’s fine, it’s a good target.
 
Issue is that target does not connected with your steps. Mainly because it’s practically impossible to became nazist solely by pics with some white ponies in specific uniform. Otherwise…
 

 
BOOOM! You’re communist now! Медведь водка балалайка Катюша Калинка-малинка За товарища Сталина!

 
Okay, seriously speaking. The closest assumption with tons of science testing and data I can imagine is “Violent games cause violence irl”. You can just google some research and results are mostly applicable to our subject. Society and environment can plant nazism in you, not bunch of images.
 
Shortly speaking, the main reason, why our assumption is wrong, is “Nazist ideology is much more than white pony with specific cutie mark in specific uniform”. It’s a goddamned ideology, you can’t figure it out solely by images we allow (and we don’t allow acts of nazism being show, just to note). You physically can’t be nazist if you don’t know what nazism is.
 
It’s not a propaganda solely because “nazi horse looks cute” — you can find cute horse images on this site about everything. Just google actual samples of propaganda — and realize that we don’t allow it as well (exception with parodying or imitation of irl propaganda images).
 
But okay, let’s imagine a perfectly innocent soul found … for example this . Imagine that they for some reason interested what uniform she’s wearing. To know that (by lurking schutzstaffel tag here you will see just all other images with that uniform) they’ll need to… google it. And the first result will likely be Wikipedia. What they’ll understand and which conclusions they get — it’s out of our competence. Deleting images won’t help here, as there is tons of other way how you can (even accidentally) reach that article.
 
You’re not going to ask wikipedia article about nazism to be deleted, right? You know, there are even actual propaganda samples. Or located in museums. I hope that you don’t.
 
Or you are? It’s so easy to believe, that wiping out nazism mentionings from everything will “end” (or, better-worded, “never happen again”) nazism itself. Except that you can’t. Somebody will invent it again.
 
In conclusion:  
  • We’re not going to do anything about remained images with “nazi” tag as it’s pointless and doesn’t make world a better place (even a tiny-little bit).  
  • Actual propaganda, discrimination and such still will be deleted; if you see something like that — report it, we could miss something.  
  • If you personally don’t like images with that subject — filter them (and I see how you filter them).  
  • I don’t believe that this text will actually change how you understand things (it just doesn’t work this way), but at least I hope, that it will force you to reevaluate and rethink things.  
  • Let’s have this subject closed. Topic was “Ask the Mods <…> Questions” — mod answered. Move on.

Damnit dude! That Red alert thing gave me nostalgia!
 
But seriously, thanks for stopping this argument mate
 
 
Tossing a question here just for the sake of the thread; I can have a drawing made way before the next Collab? Especially for the flying characters. Because this one kind of ambushed me.

I don’t know where else to ask this so yeah I kinda need help with mass deleting images. I drew some images of my oc and my ex and his friends keep commenting on it, it’s really annoying that they keep bringing up my pasts. Is there any way to request mass delete or should I report for delete one by one?

I personally not sure about it, but the only “time-span” requirement is “image should be used for collab only once”. I’m not sure, if you can for real use images made before official start, but I never saw that anybody denied it.
 
@Sugar Morning  
Reporting of one image with listing all you want to delete is enough. But if comments annoy you, maybe locking the comments will work as well?

In all honesty, and not really joking, could i make myself an account with the username TuMama?

I certainly agree, we should move on, apologies for replying.

I’ve sent reports to remove my comments on certain content…can you guys just do that so I don’t have to send a report over and over?

@Background Pony #F92C  
I’m not aware of a way for moderators to search for your comments only on images with certain tags.
 
And you’ve got thousands of comments on the site, so going through your comments page by page to see whether the image was something you do or don’t want your comments on is not practical.
 
If you want to report the images that you want your comments removed from, that’s doable. You can include the image links in a single report if you would like.
 
But right now short of getting a developer involved I am not aware of a way to do what you are asking.
Background Pony #699F
Could you please close my reports? I have more things I can’t report because 3 is the limit. Mostly nothing bad: an image that might need reprocessing, and a BP that might be spamming.
Background Pony #91AF
What are the requirements for the Speaking Fancy badge? I know that it’s for translating, but how many images somebody needs to translate? I’m asking for a friend that wants the medal.

Why do you keep asking this over and over? I’ve already had a long discussion with you in PMs about this, and answered your question publicly in other threads, too.
 
There is no set number of translations for the badge - only that someone has a history of helping the site by translating images from other languages and that the translations are largely correct.
 
‘Your friend’ should request the badge in the Derpibooru Badges so that we can review the translations they’ve done.

Okay okay calm down, jeez. I was just making sure to give him the right information, since I couldn’t even help him gain the badge. I felt like i failed him, the least thing I can do it’s atleast tell him how much it can take and all the needed info about how to get it. Are you happy now? If you want you can talk to him directly, you already know who he is.

The reason that i posted it here was beause you did way too much for me, and i didnt want to annoy you further because of my stupidity!
 
Also, i’ve already sent PM’s to you right now!
