SafePoni (http://safeponi.com/) was a repository of SFW My Little Pony images. Sometime between June 10, 2019 and October 9, 2019 it was merged into Safebooru. All safeponi.com URLs now redirect to https://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=list&tags=my_little_pony.
Why is this probably a problem?
When website mergers occur, much of the original metadata, comments, ratings, and other things are lost. This isn't the first time a booru merged into another booru. This merger likely had the same problems as the following, in which hundreds of thousands of webpages were deleted without being archived:
Realbooru was located at http://rb.booru.org/ (software version: Gelbooru Beta 0.1.11); it was moved to https://realbooru.com/, renamed to RealBooru, and had its software upgraded (software version: Gelbooru Beta 0.2). When the moving process first began the original site was briefly located at https://booru.org/rb/, but that now redirects to RealBooru. Here is the problem: in the process of moving, comments, forum posts, sources, tag histories (many of which included the erroneous removal of the "light_skin" tag), original upload dates, and other things were lost. At the time when the site was still located booru.org/rb/ but being moved to realbooru.com I downloaded all or most of the original website; I plan on uploading it to the archive.org or something:
[ ] Files I downloaded have been uploaded to archive.org or elsewhere [x] Files I downloaded have NOT YET been uploaded to archive.org or elsewhere
