The End wasn't The End - Found a new home after the great exodus of 2012

I was wondering the same thing. I practically spend the day here yet i haven’t seen anyone complain, not on the forums at least.
 
Same here. Or in other words: citation needed.

Artists do complain. I don’t mod anymore, but I’ve found there are definitely some very persnickety artists who get mad about such things. I don’t know anything for sure but it would not surprise me at all.

@The Smiling Pony
Say what now?
The situation now is we do have people complaining about these things near constantly; many of them are artists that teeter on not wanting their work here because it ends up lost in a sea of template images. The booru is already known by many as memebooru, or the various exploitable memes known as “derpibooru memes” outside the site

Slightly more serious, DB is the only pony site and the only thing involving pony I frequent anymore so I don’t much know of things outside of the site. Didn’t know things were that dire.

I’ve seen a lot of complaints about DB. Most of the artists that I’ve seen dislike Derpibooru don’t dislike it because of memes, but a bad experience that they then associate with the site as a whole. It’s why our DNP grows, and TSP has to deal with people arguing with him on Tumblr about how terrible we are.
 
The only artist I’ve seen in particular complain about memes myself is Cappnea (sp?) and I get the feeling it was at least partially a joke.

Yeah, it really depends. I’ve seen artist mad because people RPed on their image when they wanted actual feedback. People who were upset with what version or resolution of their art was posted, and then people who just didn’t want criticism and wanted to keep their work on a site where they could control the comments.
 
The biggest complaint I saw, however, were artists who simply disliked the userbase or some such tripe. About that, there’s not much to be done. Unless you want to actually kill off the community itself…

That one Weaver pic, right? Always found that a tad ironic, given that his pics seemed to lend themselves to those spontaneous RPs back then.

This is an art repository site, not a website like fur affinity in which you have your own profile and such.
 
They seriously cant expect us to work like that.

FA is a poorly-coded version of DeviantArt - every artist has their own gallery, with a fair amount of control over what gets posted there, and there’s a front page that shows the most recent stuff.

I think he’s referring to the fact that on sites like FA people upload their own stuff to their profile and have absolute control over it. People upload their own art on their profiles as opposed to a site like a booru where it’s an image repository that anyone can post artwork on.
 
Of course, on good booru sites, like this one, sources should always lead back to the original artist’s work where they can be subscribed to or followed. Derpi makes a very, very big deal about crediting artists, respecting their wishes, and making sure they link back to the preferred site or profile. That is of the most importance here.

No, it’s because they think a site with a nearly a half million pictures, 50k+ users, thousands of unique uploaders, and over 1.3 million comments is somehow supportive of every single image uploaded or that their art being on here implies that they are as well.

Eh, I don’t care either way. I flit past memes. Though if something’s scaring away artist from the site, I suppose that’s an issue we need to resolve…bans for people who spam meme? Though I believe I already said that somewhere.
