However, using baseless, unconstructive criticism as a veil for the purpose of insulting or attacking an image and/or an artist is not allowed. </li> <li>This rule applies to all images, comments, forum posts, and private messages, along with all other interactions you may make on this website.</li> </ul> </div> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="1"> </a><a href="#1">#1</a> Respect artists and their artwork </h2> <p>Derpibooru is a website dedicated to fanart of MLP:FiM. Without the thousands of artists creating such fan art, we would not have much of a site at all. Therefore, it is important to always respect the wishes of the artists regarding their artwork.</p> <ul> <li> Do not upload edits without either permission (ideal) or a reasonable expectation the artist is okay with them; by default, before considering their past art/behavior/statements/etc., it’s expected artists aren’t okay with changes to their signature/watermark or huge thematic changes like majorly changing which fetishes, characters, races, or political stances are in an image. <br /> Always tag "edit" to distinguish from the original. </li> <li>Do not upload artwork that has not been publicly released, or is intended to remain private or restricted access, without permission from the artist who made it. This includes paid content, such as Patreon-only images or images from an art pack or folio. </li> <li>Do not upload significant portions of official content that hasn't been freely released (promotional material etc. counts as freely released), such as a full page of a comic/book, more than 30 seconds of official video, or more than 10 seconds of official audio or copyrighted music. This applies to single uploads and to splitting contiguous portions across uploads. </li> <li>Images that have been released on a pay-what-you-want scheme, as well as images from a "free version" of a paid art pack, must be released for at least one week (seven days) before they may be posted on this site. Then, only content which can be obtained for free may be posted. </li> <li> Do not upload images from artists who are on our <a href="/dnp">Do-Not-Post (DNP) List</a> , or who have otherwise publicly made a clear and visible statement that they do not wish for their content to be on this website. </li> <li>Do not upload images that contain watermarks or advertisements for sites that promote content theft, sharing of paid-only images, or sharing of images without providing reasonable attribution to the artists who made them. Likewise, do not share links to such sites either.</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="2"> </a><a href="#2">#2</a> Properly tag and source images </h2> <p> Without doubt, Derpibooru's most defining feature is our tagging system, which is what organizes the over one million images that have been posted to this website, allowing anyone to find exactly what they are looking for quickly and easily, while filtering out anything they may not want to see. Anyone can edit an image's tags to help organize it better, but it is important to keep tags consistent and accurate. </p> <ul> <li> All images must have 1 or more <a href="/pages/tags">rating tags</a> . Note that Safe is overridden by <em>any</em> other. </li> <li> If an image is not adequately tagged or sourced, please correct it yourself (when possible, report otherwise) and do <em>not</em> complain in a comment. If someone is consistently tagging/sourcing inadequately, report them. </li> <li>If there’s disagreement over tagging/sourcing, defer to staff judgment, and report as necessary. </li> <li>For each of an image’s artists, tag in the format "artist:name". Use "artist needed" if no artist is known. </li> <li> Tags should describe the "facts" of an image, like the characters, their relationships, events happening, and the image’s composition. When these are in dispute (such as whether an image is shipping), the artist’s intent takes precedence. Tags should <em>not</em> be used to state opinions – that’s what comments are for. </li> <li>Images originally posted elsewhere should have its URL for source. If the artist only wants the image on Derpibooru, use the "Derpibooru Exclusive" tag. </li> <li>Tags should be useful to the site overall. Do not create tags for personal organization, or with very vague or inconsistent definitions. </li> <li> Tag and source vandalism will <em>not</em> be tolerated. This includes bulk changes (like removing a tag that's on many images from them all) <em>unless</em> you get permission from staff. </li> <li>Images that have rapidly-flashing animation must be tagged with "seizure warning".</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="3"> </a><a href="#3">#3</a> Do not upload unrelated content </h2> <p>This site is intended for images regarding MLP:FiM and its surrounding community. Images that are completely unrelated to MLP:FiM may be removed.</p> <ul> <li>Do not upload images without a clear relation to MLP (all generations, not just FiM) or its community. </li> <li>An image isn’t pony-related just because something pony is in it; for instance, exploitable meme templates with unrelated content or pony merchandise in real-life pornography.</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="4"> </a><a href="#4">#4</a> Use filters to hide unwanted content and follow local content law </h2> <p>Derpibooru is extremely permissive as to what we allow on this website, which means we allow images that contain themes which some may find objectionable. To help you avoid seeing images you may not wish to see, we have a tag filtering system, which allows for hiding of images that contain specific tags.</p> <ul> <li>If you see images that contain themes you do not like, you should add the appropriate tags to your filter. Do not post comments complaining about the theme of the image. </li> <li>If you find an image that you believe violates the site's rules or content guidelines, please report the image so that the site's staff may look into it. Do not post comments claiming an image violates the site's rules. </li> <li>Do not view or post any content you are forbidden from in your jurisdiction. For images, filter them.</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="5"> </a><a href="#5">#5</a> Do not post forbidden content </h2> <p>We forbid legally dubious content listed below. Due to ambiguous laws, better safe than sorry.</p> <p>Note that 'sexual' refers to any content rated "suggestive", "questionable", or "explicit"; and 'underage' means below 18 years old.</p> <ul> <li>Do not upload photographs of real life humans in sexual depictions or scenarios who may be underage. Do not discuss getting such images or having sexual real-life meetings with such people. </li> <li>Do not upload artwork of characters in sexual depictions or scenarios who look underage and look human or human-like. </li> <li>Do not roleplay sexual situations involving underage human or humanlike characters.</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="6"> </a><a href="#6">#6</a> Do not abuse site functionality (including multiple accounts) or derail discussion </h2> <p>Compared to other websites of our size, Derpibooru has a fairly accepting policy in terms of allowing multiple accounts, guest and anonymous posting, and usage of site features. However, this leaves open the possibility of abuse, so certain things are not permitted.</p> <ul> <li>You are permitted to have multiple accounts for purposes of roleplaying, maintaining different sets of filters, or for personal privacy. </li> <li>You may not use multiple accounts or anonymous posting for the purposes of evading bans, voting on images multiple times, sockpuppeting, or otherwise appearing to be multiple people within the same conversation. </li> <li>Do not spam or put off-topic content – especially fetishes or roleplay – in comments/forum posts/reports. Roleplay is generally only on-topic in the roleplay forum. </li> <li>Do not indiscriminately downvote images based on their tags and/or content. Instead, filter content you do not wish to see. </li> <li>If you think someone is violating a rule, submit a report instead of otherwise calling them out (such as with a comment). Don’t submit reports in bad faith, such as frivolous reports to attack others. </li> <li>Do not upscale or otherwise manipulate images to artificially create a "better" image for duplicate merging. </li> <li>You may not post images or image descriptions that are intended to game the site's vote system by offering specific incentives (such as alternative versions of an image) in exchange for upvotes, downvotes, or faves. </li> <li>Do not impersonate Derpibooru staff, such as by setting your "personal title" or username to anything closely resembling those of a staff member.</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="7"> </a><a href="#7">#7</a> Unfilterable content must be shown with care </h2> <p> We allow content of many kinds, and one must be mindful where and how adult, graphic, or seizure-inducing content is posted. Our <a href="/pages/tags">ratings</a> distinguish levels of sexuality, grossness, and darkness for these purposes. </p> <p>This doesn’t apply to filterable content like uploaded images or embeds using on-site (>>) syntax.</p> <ul> <li>Forum threads intended to contain sexual and/or graphic posts should be marked with [NSFW] in the title. </li> <li>Content in comments/posts above the image/thread’s rating must be surrounded with [spoiler][/spoiler] tags and, if multiple ratings above, have a clear warning. </li> <li>Above-rating content cannot be the entire point of a comment/post. </li> <li>Content that may cause seizures, like rapid flashing, must be spoilered and come with a clear warning. </li> <li>Avatars and personal titles can’t be spoilered, and thus must not be seizure-inducing and must be Safe-rated (nudity, sex, death, and gore would not be, for instance).</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="8"> </a><a href="#8">#8</a> Respect privacy </h2> <p>As noted above, this site allows a wide variety of content, and some people may not necessarily wish for their names to be publicly associated with such content. Derpibooru takes privacy extremely seriously, and attempting to breach one's privacy is strictly prohibited.</p> <ul> <li>If you are aware of an artist or member using multiple names/aliases to keep content separate (such as clean vs sexual content), or using an alternative name as to not be identified, do not call them out or publicly highlight such a fact.</li> <li>Do not share private or personal information about a third party, such as personal contact information, private messages, off site conversations, and other information that they may not want publicly known, without their permission.</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="9"> </a><a href="#9">#9</a> Commissions </h2> <p>Commissions may be advertised on Derpibooru, but some rules and restrictions apply.</p> <ul> <li>Any advertisements for commissions may only contain example artwork that was created entirely by the person advertising said commissions. Using another person’s artwork in an advertisement is not allowed.</li> <li>Always use caution and your own discretion when discussing commissions. Derpibooru will not be responsible for, nor able to assist with, any disputes, incomplete transactions, or otherwise undesirable outcomes that result from advertising, seeking, or arranging commissions on this site.</li> <li>All commission agreements are between the artist and commissioner only. Derpibooru will not and should not be considered a party in any agreement involving commissions.</li> <li>You may not advertise any commissions for content that would violate site rules or any applicable laws. Basically, anything that cannot be hosted on Derpibooru cannot be advertised either.</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="n"> </a><a href="#n">#n</a> Rules are not exhaustive </h2> <p>There may always arise situations that were not accounted for in the above rules, or that may be unique or extraordinary in their circumstances. All enforcement of the rules, as well as the decision as to whether something is or is not acceptable, is ultimately left up to the discretion of the site's staff.</p> </div> </div>

Anyone can edit an image's tags to help organize it better, but it is important to keep tags consistent and accurate. </p> <ul> <li> All images must have at least one rating tag, as defined in our <a href="/pages/tags">tag guidelines</a> .

This includes bulk adding/removing/modifying tags on a large quantity of images without permission, adding tags to images in which they do not pertain to, and modifying source URLs to point towards invalid, inaccurate, or useless addresses. </li> <li>Images that have rapidly flashing animation must be tagged with "seizure warning". </li> <li>If an image is not adequately tagged or sourced, please correct them as necessary.

Derpibooru will not be responsible for, nor able to assist with, any disputes, incomplete transactions, or otherwise undesirable outcomes that result from advertising, seeking, or arranging commissions on this site.</li> <li>All commission agreements are between the artist and commissioner only. Derpibooru will not and should not be considered a party in any agreement involving commissions.</li> <li>You may not advertise any commissions for content that would violate site rules or any applicable laws.

Without the thousands of artists creating such fan art, we would not have much of a site at all. Therefore, it is important to always respect the wishes of the artists regarding their artwork.</p> <ul> <li>Do not upload images that have been altered in a way that the artist may not appreciate. This may include (but is not limited to) removing an artist's signature and/or watermark, recoloring an image to insert or remove an OC, and fetish edits. </li> <li>Do not upload artwork that has not been publicly released, or is intended to remain private or restricted access, without permission from the artist who made it. This includes paid content, such as Patreon-only images or images from an art pack or folio. </li> <li>Images that have been released on a pay-what-you-want scheme, as well as images from a "free version" of a paid art pack, must be released for at least one week (seven days) before they may be posted on this site. Then, only content which can be obtained for free may be posted. </li> <li> Do not upload images from artists who are on our <a href="/meta/do-not-post-list">Do-Not-Post (DNP) List</a> , or who have otherwise publicly made a clear and visible statement that they do not wish for their content to be on this website. </li> <li>Do not upload images that contain watermarks or advertisements for sites that promote content theft, sharing of paid-only images, or sharing of images without providing reasonable attribution to the artists who made them. Likewise, do not share links to such sites either. </li> <li>All edits of an original image not made by the original artist should be tagged as "edit", and preferably should be made with the artist's permission.</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="2"> </a><a href="#2">#2</a> Properly tag and source images </h2> <p> Without doubt, Derpibooru's most defining feature is our tagging system, which is what organizes the over one million images that have been posted to this website, allowing anyone to find exactly what they are looking for quickly and easily, while filtering out anything they may not want to see. Anyone can edit an image's tags to help organize it better, but it is important to keep tags consistent and accurate. </p> <ul> <li> All images must have at least one rating tag, as defined in our <a href="/pages/tags">tag guidelines</a> . Images tagged as "safe" may not have any other rating tags. </li> <li>The artist(s) of an image should always be tagged in the format of "artist:name" to identify who created the image. If the artist's name is not known, an image should be tagged with the "artist needed" tag. </li> <li>Tags should properly describe an image, including characters, themes, scenes, and events. </li> <li>Tags should only define the tangible "facts" of an image. Tags should not be used to state your opinion of an image – that's what comments are for. </li> <li>Images should have a source URL to an original location where the image was originally posted. If an image is artwork that is intended by the artist to only be posted to Derpibooru, then please use the "Derpibooru Exclusive" tag to identify it as such. </li> <li>For images where the theme of an image may not be 100% clear, or may be subject to debate (for example, friendships vs shipping), the artist's opinion takes precedence. </li> <li>Tags should be useful to the site overall. Do not create tags for the purpose of your own personal organization, or tags that could have an inconsistent or otherwise vague definition. </li> <li>Tag and source vandalism is prohibited. This includes bulk adding/removing/modifying tags on a large quantity of images without permission, adding tags to images in which they do not pertain to, and modifying source URLs to point towards invalid, inaccurate, or useless addresses. </li> <li>Images that have rapidly flashing animation must be tagged with "seizure warning". </li> <li>If an image is not adequately tagged or sourced, please correct them as necessary. Comments complaining about inadequate tagging or sourcing will be considered spam. If you feel that an uploader is posting numerous images without proper tagging or sourcing, submit a report.</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="3"> </a><a href="#3">#3</a> Do not upload unrelated content </h2> <p>This site is intended for images regarding MLP:FiM and its surrounding community. Images that are completely unrelated to MLP:FiM may be removed.</p> <ul> <li>Images should always have a clear association to MLP:FiM. </li> <li>Images that are not directly related to, but share a strong relation with MLP:FIM and/or it's community (such as previous MLP generations and community-related content), are welcome as well. </li> <li>Images that contain an "obligatory pony" (as in inserting a pony or the mention of a pony into an otherwise unrelated image) does not make that image MLP:FiM-related, and such images will be removed from the site. </li> <li>Images that were created using an exploitable meme or a "fill in the blank" template, which is designed to be an image featuring an already drawn pony where you "drop-in" an unrelated image, are not allowed.</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="4"> </a><a href="#4">#4</a> Use filters to hide content you don't wish to see </h2> <p>Derpibooru is extremely permissive as to what we allow on this website, which means we allow images that contain themes which some may find objectionable. To help you avoid seeing images you may not wish to see, we have a tag filtering system, which allows for hiding of images that contain specific tags.</p> <ul> <li>If you see images that contain themes you do not like, you should add the appropriate tags to your filter. Do not post comments complaining about the theme of the image. </li> <li>If you find content that you believe violates the site rules, use the report feature to alert a moderator so that it can be investigated. Do not make posts calling out other members for violating rules.</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="5"> </a><a href="#5">#5</a> Do not post forbidden content </h2> <p>Derpibooru is governed by the laws of the United Kingdom, Germany, and France, and therefore content against the laws of these countries is forbidden on this site. Likewise, we do not host "borderline" content that may be legally dubious, and generally use a "better safe than sorry" approach to such content. Note that sexualized refers to any image rated "suggestive", "questionable", or "explicit".</p> <p>Derpibooru is governed by the laws of Germany and France, and therefore content against the laws of these countries is forbidden on this site.

Note that sexualized refers to any image rated "suggestive", "questionable", or "explicit".</p> <ul> <li>Do not upload photographs of real life humans in a sexualized depiction, or in sexualized scenarios, whose age cannot be verified to be at least eighteen years of age or older. </li> <li>Do not upload drawn or computer generated images of characters in a sexualized manner, or in sexualized scenarios, who appear to be under the age of eighteen and who are human or closely resembling a human. </li> <li>Simply adding one or two nonhuman features to an otherwise human-like character is not necessarily enough to make the image acceptable. Characters should be nonhuman enough that a layman would not reasonably believe them to be human.</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="6"> </a><a href="#6">#6</a> Do not spam, abuse multiple accounts, or abuse site functionality </h2> <p>Compared to other websites of our size, Derpibooru has a fairly accepting policy in terms of allowing multiple accounts, guest and anonymous posting, and usage of site features. However, this leaves open the possibility of abuse, so certain things are not permitted.</p> <ul> <li>You are permitted to have multiple accounts for purposes of roleplaying, maintaining different sets of filters, or for personal privacy. </li> <li>You may not use multiple accounts or anonymous posting for the purposes of evading bans, voting on images multiple times, sockpuppeting, or otherwise appearing to be multiple people within the same conversation. </li> <li>Do not spam or post unrelated content in comments and forum threads. </li> <li>Roleplaying should be confined to private messages and the site's roleplaying forum. Do not roleplay in image comments. </li> <li>Do not indiscriminately downvote images based on their tags and/or content. Instead, filter content you do not wish to see.</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="7"> </a><a href="#7">#7</a> Comments and posts should respect ratings </h2> <p>While adult content (including sexual and violent themes) is allowed on Derpibooru, not everyone using this website wishes to see it. Therefore, such content should only be posted where uninterested parties would be able to easily avoid it.</p> <ul> <li>Forum threads that are intended to contain sexual or violent comments should be marked by including [NSFW] in the thread's title. </li> <li>Comments and posts may go above their image/thread's rating or include rapidly-flashing images only if such portions are relevant to the image or thread and surrounded with [spoiler][/spoiler] tags. </li> <li>Comments and posts must not be, in their entirety, above the image/thread's rating. </li> <li>Comments and posts with rapidly flashing images or portions multiple steps above the rating must put clear warnings (e.g. 'seizure warning', 'warning: explicit') before them. </li> <li>Profanity and foul language alone is not necessary considered above an image's rating. Swearing is allowed as long as it is not insulting, antagonizing, or excessive. </li> <li>Avatars should uphold to a "safe" rating and not contain any visible nudity, sexually suggestive, explicit, or violent content. Additionally, avatars may not have any rapidly flashing animations that may trigger a seizure.</li> </ul> </div> <div class="rule"> <h2> <a name="8"> </a><a href="#8">#8</a> Respect privacy </h2> <p>As noted above, this site allows a wide variety of content, and some people may not necessarily wish for their names to be publicly associated with such content.
