"A file is always only going to be one file type. Not a webm, gif, png, bmp, and a jpg please. Fix your code... You are ruining it for everyone."
API does give out the full file name including extension. The "ruining" person probably doesn't even use it (and thus not seeing the message). Like for example Imagus (chrome extension). It does try to guess file extension, making many requests with different file types as it only tries to reconstruct the direct link from page and thumbnail URLs, and they don't have any filetype info.

Redirecting 404 at "/images/*" to a script, that would take md5 out of URL and redirect to proper image path could be a fool-proof solution for all those idiots, so even if you go for "" it would still redirect to "" and stop the dumb script's guess-work. Or you could just redirect it to a big photo of an asshole with the message, so the "ruining" person, would totally see it.

But as for types I have a question: can't you stick with just one file type (jpg or jpeg) for their names?

No, we can't stick with just one file type, especially not jpg or jpeg. We want to host the original image file exactly as the original artist uploaded it to the internet. If the artist uploads it as a PNG, it's going to be a PNG on Gelbooru. We even use MD5 checks against the artist's original upload as a way to determine which version of a duplicate image to delete.

Sorry, I didn't mean the image-format. I literally meant if you could stick to either JPG or JPEG in file name when you get a jpeg-image, so if someone sends you "jpeg", it would be renamed (not converted) to "jpg" or vise versa. I remember having cases where I had the same file twice with different types in my "collection". I don't remember the reason though.

And "A file is always only going to be one file type" is a tiny bit misleading here, as webm files have a preview image that is jpg at the same path. As I was using Imagus before, I had to put webm first in it's regexp so it would give me the video instead of a preview picture. All them boorus aren't exactly Imagus-friendly..
