For those who are reading this. I think we can all agree that the last week has been a fucken joke. but regardless. I only have one point to share. I'm not leaving. I'm not calling for do not post party's. I'm not going to hurt the site to prove a point. This place has been my home since 2014. I will not give it up because some children screamed about nazi pones existing on it (guess what. filters exist. USE THEM)


So. anyone in the same boat as me. feel free to chime in. otherwise. feel free to go to one of the dnp posts and scream into the void. I'm voting to stay. share my art. and chill. this is my home.

I just want to enjoy pony pictures, not gonna leave. I'm satisfied with just calling staff a bunch of nerds and call it a day.

Edit: Actually now that I look at the list of artists who went DNP against the intial censorship, if those guys really leave, I'm probably out too. Most of my favorite artists are on there, and if their art isn't on derpi, not much reason to stay.

We shouldn't hurt the site by leaving of course, but we shouldn't also ignore the organized attack by people from Twitter and other places, who pretendent to have a noble goal, just to try and bring more and more censorship to this site.

We still should all stand for NO censorship being enforced because of the recent events.

Those activists already said that they won't stop with their initial demands.

They promised that they will go after some site's porn fetishes they don't like, and get them to be removed from the site.

I've been here through other stuff over the years, some major, some less so, but this won't be the end for me, I know that much.

Depends which stance they take.

If they opt for censorship, I'll probably lurk around but they can forget getting a single cent or a single ad view out of me.

If they opt to tell the Twitter nobodies to fuck off, they have my full support.

I don't know what to do I'll be honest. For me, I like having places to show off my art for people to see. I guess I need to think about it.

I think Saitama's words sum it up pretty well:
"If the heroes run and hide, who will stay and fight?"

The artists, the content creators, we are the heroes.

The problem as far as I can tell is that there are artists on both sides of the issue. If virtually all artists agreed and there were merely activists outside the fandom pressuring the site, I'd imagine the choice would be easy. Sadly that's not the case, which makes it desirable to try to find a compromise which avoids losing as much existing and future art as possible. Sadly, it currently seems like the site will lose a lot of art regardless of the outcome 😞

For what it's worth, I'm staying here unless things get really out of hand. I've gone from being neutral to slightly being on the anti-censorship side, but I've seen and heard dumb arguments from people on both sides. The main reason why I'm pissed is because the Derpibooru staff hasn't been upfront with us as they could have been, and has allowed the community to pressure them into making decisions too quickly. Hell, it seems that they can't even be upfront among themselves. Some staff members have been left out of the decisions surrounding the situation so far, and when you're dealing with something like this that requires a serious decision to be made, everyone should be involved.

This might be a potential hot-take, but after I've thought about it for a while, my opinion is that the community as a whole is getting distracted by Nazism when the underlying issue is still racism. It's possible to be racist without being a Neo-nazi, because there's a whole lot more to Nazism than just that.

What exactly happened?
Just saw a pic saying they want to ban hateful stuff (like nazi or sexism) and foalcon. Are people to stupid to use filters?

No, as the creator of this poll demonstrated, the people supporting nazi content will stay here regardless of what happens, because they are playing a game, and they value porn above all else. The people who want to remove the nazi content aren't playing.

I wrote a summary of what happened in another thread that you can look at here, but I guess a really simplified TL;DR version of it would be:

George Floyd dies → People more conscious of racism as a result → People start uploading BLM art → said BLM art is downvoted to hell and back → Derpibooru controversy surrounding racism starts → a biased article Wootmaster was involved in has switched the topic from racism as a whole to Nazism → said article only added more fuel to the fire rather than solving anything
