That’s a great idea. Do you know how to do that? If so, please do - I think creating it here in the Site & Policy forum might be the pest place for it. Let me know if you need a hand.
Please note that the problem with such guides is that if they depend on free services on the web, those can come and go pretty fast. And sometimes very useful free services will suddenly require payment.
But, having what you are describing, especially if it gave advice on how to find new free services for online conversions, would be great :)

  • Feature Name: AutoComplete function in search bar.
  • Summary: Tags appearing as suggestions while searching post in this site.
  • Goal: The only way to know if a tag exists is while editing the tags of a post in fancy editor.
  • Description: As you type in the search bar, tags that have been used in at least one post, and if possible including the number of posts that have used that tag, will appear as suggestions that can be incorporated into your search by pressing Tab, Enter/Return or clicking on them.
  • Other: I found another site, https://www.rule34.lol/, which search bar has the autocomplete function and also runs on Philomena.

Little suggestion: “Cryptid” and “wendigo” should be added to the implications for the “fictional species” tag.
…unless proof has been found that these things aren’t fictional. If so, do share!

What if whenever someone posts something, if there is no artist tag or source link, there is a prompt that asks “Would you like to add x?” Because sometimes I forget I to add those tags to the image.
Probably not awfully important, but it could be handy.

→ Feature Name
Tag Groups
→ Summary
A list of pages that are themselves lists of tags.
→ Goal
Groupings that are extremely confusing to keep track of otherwise (colors), or ones that needed visual guides (sex positions, body types) can be on tag groups. It can also be used to find out which tag Furbooru uses.
→ Description
I like seeing pages of Tag Group wiki pages on Danbooru just because they mention any tags for things I like. They also would help me tag things that aren’t on the tagging checklist whenever I’m not sure what to tag my post, like this tag group made me tag this Ponybooru image with venus symbol. Tags should often be listed in multiple wiki pages or multiple sections in the same page for better navigation, like in Danbooru.
→ Other
Danbooru and E621 have these features as the wiki pages, which is to find out which tags that E621 and Danbooru use.

I have three thoughts about this.
First, people’s bans are considered confidential and their own personal business. That someone was banned is no one else’s business. That seems like a good thing and I would not want to see that changed.
Second, as the site is today, if you are banned, I can tell you in the ban reason exactly what you did that was rule breaking, including quoting what you said that got you banned. If the change you describe was made, I couldn’t quote what you said that got you banned if it was rule breaking, or personal. So if you said something racist, or something that exposed a personal problem that you have, then today I can tell you the thing that you said that was deemed rule breaking so you will know what you said that was rule breaking. That is very helpful when answering questions about “why did my post get me banned?”. That seems like a good thing to still be able to do, and I would not want to see that change.
Third, why would you want other people to see how often you were banned, and what you were banned for? Wouldn’t that be embarrassing and a violation of your own privacy?

I did not ask if you wanted to be banned.
I asked why you would you want other people to see how often you were banned, and what you were banned for? Wouldn’t that be embarrassing and a violation of your own privacy?
If you wouldn’t want that for yourself, why do you want it for others?

Site staff already have a list of all bans. It’s not visible to normal users because there isn’t much point and this way bans can be private.
I also know of users (not specifically on this site) who got banned for something awhile ago and have changed afterwards, but still feel bad about the ban. That’s just with them and staff being able to see it, if anyone could see their bans it would not help. Especially then if they try talking to anyone, they could see the ban even if it was years ago, and make interactions harder.

And, while this might be running the risk of overthinking all of this or beating a dead horse …
@satuputra796
If someone else asked to see your moderation history, you would have to give your explicit permission for us to show it to them. It is your private information. It’s not public and no one else has a need or right to see it. And everyone else’s moderation history is their private information.
It’s even baked into our rules:
Rule #8 Furbooru takes privacy extremely seriously, and attempting to breach one’s privacy is strictly prohibited.
