That's a good idea but there are some issues that prevent it from being practical. Danbooru and Sankaku Complex have a limit to the number of tags you can use at once (2 and 4, respectively). It takes more than that just to weed out unsuitable file formats, sort by popularity, etc. Even if that were solved, there'd still be the issue of duplicates, which is a solvable problem but would take quite a bit more effort than I'd like to invest at this point as I'm not really actively developing the project anymore. Sorry orz.

I looked into it and it seems like you were failing to connect to the User-Agent string website. It might have been a problem on their end (I can ping it but I can't get to it in a browser so who knows what they're doing), but it might have been your own internet. I don't know what to say beyond that. If you're willing to try again, I'll be uploading a new version in a few days that might work better for you. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Turns out Gelbooru updated their software at some point and broke the image downloading code pretty much completely. I'll be uploading a new version with a fix for that and some other bugs as well as some new features in a few days. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Thanks for playing my dumb meme game and especially thanks for giving feedback. A lot of things you point out are things I noticed too but wouldn't have had time to fix before the jam ends. I'd like to revisit the game afterward though and get them right.
- I wanted to do that originally but couldn't make it work well enough because of my inexperience with pygame and python in general. I think I could make it work now, if I had the time.
- Agreed, I'll experiment with that.
- I tried that for a bit but the red waifu didn't look good on the card, I'll play around with darker reds in the future.
- There are some limitations for this both on my end and on gelbooru's but I may be able to provide a list of tags similar to the input name and ask the player which they meant.
Interesting. Does this only happen with "Haruka (pokemon)" or have you seen it fail the same way with other names as well? Either way, I'll try to see what's going in this weekend. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
