ITT, let's discuss the future of art preservation and boorus.

The long version:
After recent events, doubts have arose about the continuance of Derpibooru as the premiere image archival site for the fandom. As it sits now, "controversial" images depicting recent events are being removed by the site. Even though the moderators claim they will apply the rule fairly, some may question the fairness of how the new rules are being applied. Note that regardless of claims made by anyone that art is being removed from the site. You may or may not care about political art, but there is good reason to be concerned about art preservation on the site. There is potential for much more to be lost.

Update:
Recently not just "controversial" images depicting recent events are being deleted, but any and all "controversial" images. Certain tags are now banned in new uploads. Old posts are supposed to be grandfathered in, but dwindling search results put this in question. Derpi mods are banning people left and right in the forums. Even the main userbase seems to be getting nervous.

TLDR:
There's other options.
-Right now Rainbooru is a good alternative to Derpi. (www.rainbooru.org)
-In the near future we can also look forward to TwiBooru, based on Philomena (from Twifag)
-ZizzyDizzyMC is working on pony booru based on Philomena too.

Specialized Boorus:
-booru.foalcon.com (foalcon)
-www.fluffybooru.com (fluffy ponies)
-lyrabooru.org (plushophilia)
-www.bronibooru.com (SFW, no shipping, no non-pony anthro, no translations)

Latest Developments:
-Improvements to Rainbooru, too many to list ^:) (www.rainbooru.org/changelog)
-Twifag and Zizzy making progress with Philomena (Nothing public yet)
-Derpi banning more art, situation deteriorating
-People are looking for alternatives

This is NOT the Derpibooru drama general. Please keep posts relevant to booru development. (>>>/mlp/derpi)

>>35508991

>>35510142
So interesting finds:

1. Derpi releases daily dumps of their entier Postgres DB at this URL https://derpibooru.org/pages/data_dumps

2. Using this feature, it is possible to perform daily scrapes of all Derpibooru images. All other metadata is contained within the dump.

3. Leveraging this, any booru can recreate the entire Derpi experience. Complete with images, upvotes, description, the forums, EVERYTHING

Soooo Twi or Zizzy can literally just copy the whole thing over as it stands, then just thak the cuck breaks off and allow uncensored posting ontop of everything that already exists

Twifag: you said earlier that Philomena have no documentation. But I see that Philomena project uses ExDoc (JavaDoc equivalent for Elixir, compiles into html or epub documentation). So, do you mean there's not enough documentation instead?
>>
>>35510312
I'm assuming that's the kind of stuff where you write a descriptive comment above every function and it compiles into a nice HTML summary of what everything in the code does.
If so, while that's invaluable for a developer, it's not very useful for a user, because twifag doesn't need to understand the code - he needs guides on how to configure the booru, how to do things as a user.

The reason why I cannot bother to visit Rainbooru, even though I like the concept of the site, is because of CPs and foalcons. I hate to admit it but there is a stereotype of "right-wings" (catch all term as opposed to sjws) being pedophiles, not the sjws. And there are actual misogynists among us. By meaning misogynists, not that misogynists that feminists are yelling about. I meant real misogynists who hate everything feminine. They hate everything female so much that they cannot stand watching sexually mature females. Especially females with curves and maternity. The /trad/ pedos and this many incel type of "right wing" lolcows in Kiwifarms scare me.

Fun fact: pedos exist everywhere. You can go on Twitter and find the same kind of SJW that are posted on /v/ posting pro pedo messages and tags,just like you can make a thread on /pol/ about the AoC and find a lot of people arguing that it should be lowered, /tv/ having hourly child model threads that devolve i to people from all politic alignments calling each other pedo, or even the ocassional real pedo talking about real kids in the middle of random loli threads on /a/, /v/ and /co/.

事实上阿里云还是相当的安全的,对于境外的话,我推荐用的是香港的服务器,香港的服务器是所有免备案境外服务器里性价比最高的
actually aliyun os is quite safe,but if users are foreigners I'll suggest servers in Hongkong,that's one of the most cost effective one among all the record-free(I'm not sure what does免备案means) overseas servers

>>35502474
>>35502565
在境内的服务器确实受有关部门监督,但是不意味着你的一切数据都受有关部门监视(事实上他们没那个兴趣)而境外服务器和其他国外运营商一样遵守所在地区法律限制
servers in china did under the supervision of related departments but that doesn't means all your data will be monitored(actually they're not even interested about that). and servers overseas obey the laws where they're located just like other foreign operators

事实上,很多非法网站他们用的是阿里云,但是因为是境外网站,国内的有关部门无法管辖,阿里云也不会私自干预,除非你托管的服务会对阿里云的数据中心造成威胁
actually many illegal websites also use aliyun os but as they're overseas websites,departments in China can't control them and aliyun os don't make private interactions too,unless services on those websites creates threat to aliyun os's data center

而据我所知你在阿里云上能买到的服务器有一部分其实是他们的冗余服务器,是他们日常维持阿里巴巴运转后多余的服务期
and as far as I know,some of the servers you can buy from aliyun os is actually their redundant ones,it's their rest ones after they've sustained the Alibaba

>and servers overseas obey the laws where they're located just like other foreign operators

So by putting a server in China, we are going to be supporting a government that rounds up and persecutes Muslims and Hong Kongers and gives us a social credit score that could affect the way the server is run, a factor of which we know will eventually be the number of people in the aforementioned groups registered.

That will force us to discriminate based on nationality and it is antithetical to the purpose of the site we are building.

>>35512683
It absolutely does. While some people do discriminate based on skin color, it is not written into law anywhere (at least not anymore) and there is no “social credit score” system that exists anywhere in law as far as I know of. The 14th Amendment would probably act as a safeguard against both.

And if we had it in our laws, other countries would probably have it too and they would still probably be worse.

Hyper is impossibly sized (body part x), it's not macro since the rest of the pony is normal sized. It started with hyper dicks and tits but there's also hyper fat blobs and so on. There isn't any a lot of hyper on rainbooru yet, but there is a hell of a lot of it on derpi.

How illegal are we talking about and exactly where they are located. Because there's a big difference between hosting a website for pirated content (something chinks don't care about), hosting controversial opinions (like racial supremacist websites), and hosting stuff that is quickly persecuted in most parts of the world (like CP).

>>35512849

Suggestion for Rainbooru dev:
The no anthro or humanized filter seems to miss a lot of the eqg stuff. So far I've been tagging stuff that makes it through as human but this is probably not an ideal solution for when all of Derpi gets imported. The filters I use on Derpi work pretty well. They are:
-equestria girls
-humanized
-irl human
-satyr
-semi-anthro
-anthro

Note that this allows Anon through, but I at least am alright with that. Can get feedback from others.

While I do not equate the two (I keep my humanized and EQG porn separate), EQG should reasonably be treated as humanized when it comes to stock filters. I do think, however, Raindev should not make too many stock filters. Too many special cases to satisfy.

it's because of the nature of anons making up their own tagging system, so this one emulated e621 while you'd need to copy derpi's tagging for the filter to work. I fixed all 3 tags, but you could have done the same.

Suggestion for dev: enforce a minimum of tags on upload like rating, and artist (or an anonymous artist tag).

Some guy uploaded a bunch of AJ picks with 3-4 tags (mostly if not all without artist tag). A site like this isn't going to function well without proper tagging.
>>
>>35515083
I think the problem with session cookies is that you need to have an open tab 24/7 to keep your filters.
With a permanent one, you can leave the site, but your filters will keep going until you close the web browser
>>
>>35515222
Yeah, and the tags “screencap” OR “artist:whoever”/“unknown artist” should be required
>>
>>35515315
or “artist needed” so people can find the pictures that need tagging

How would I go about making a list of all the pictures that have been deleted from derpi? Do they keep the deleted images' metadata, and can I get a list of deleted stuff from the API? I want to make a personal backup from TPA or Rome, but I need to know which ones to download.

>>
>>35516042
Like I said:
>fetch all pictures from derpi

That way you keep the database bigger than derpi. That's how Gelbooru is more popular than other boorus - it grabs pictures from different sources.
Don't expect people to upload 1000s of pics from derpi manually.
>>
>>35515083
In computing, there are two kinds of cookies. Session cookies last until you close your browser. Persistent cookies last until the expiration date encoded into the cookie. They do basically the same thing but session cookies are faster to set and read and often encrypted so a nigga cant just steal your cookie and log in as you
>>
>>35516059
I'm not the new booru guy, it would be just a personal backup I could share later if needed.
They seem to keep the metadata of deleted images:
https://derpibooru.org/api/v1/json/images/2385507
And the API docs say if an image is not deleted, deletion_reason will have a null value.
So in theory I could make a script that does that API call for every image number, and prints the image ID to a text file only if deletion_reason is not null. Then I can delve into the archives and download them.
I only know some bash, so I don't know how feasible it'll be.

>>35516570

In my experience the only true safeguard is for the person who owns the shit has to be biased and anonymous. Like connecting to the site admin account via Tor in a windowed screen anonymous. Like pay the extra premium so none of their information is publicly available from the hosting company without a police warrant anonymous.

That way they can prune any power hungry double retards with an agenda out of the modding team and stay neutral without a lynch mob finding them and threatening them. Even better if they have a separate moderating account, under a fake persona with utterly different opinions to their own to interact with other mods, never letting on that their the owner and their owner account is used only for demoting mod’s.

The best way to achieve this state is having multiple sites instead of just one, so once someone gets one up and running they just throw up the code so people can makes clones. That way if the owner gets exposed they can pack up shop and everyone just slides over to the next best run clone.

Go home derpitards.
How is this censorship? Censorship is when you do not allow some type of content, not when you kick a moderator out because the mod enforces his/her own ideology.
A random single user is never in power.

>>35516798
But you are trying to censor the opinions of woketards by kicking them out, effectively making you the on the same level as the derpi mods.

Wrong again faggot, I'm a different anon to the one you were trying to shit post into believing there was more than one or two try hards with sore asses from derpi coming over to gas light.

Your the ones jumping in here and claiming that not being able to censor others is censorship.

The perfect system should make it impossible for anyone to censor anyone, then it won't matter who the mods are. Untill that time the team will have to be carefully curated to retain only people with a proven abilty to remain neutral.

aside from some obvious issues like spam, not further than yesterday some /pol/tard was screeching at me that anarchy doesn't work in any form and so we need the /pol/s "patrician choice". yet here you are expecting some arbitrary person or team to decide who to keep and who to kick. care to talk with him?

To the archive owners, what about having a parallel system with derpi posts and your respective site? Something like the images having r/t/z in front of the file's ID when saving, and when visiting the site itself, you could have it like rainbooru.org/derpi/####. If possible and desired, you could have it embedded from their site (or redirecting to the site if it's still up, but that's your call)

Rainbooru update. Default and persistent filters are here. New users should no longer be bombarded with horse pussy on arrival, which means no more premature robbing kids of their innocence. Also, after selecting a filter and closing the browser, the site will remember your preferences for next time you visit as long as you do not clear your cookies. The filter cookie only lasts six months but I think that should be fine. Also, the premade Vanilla Explicit filter has been expanded to include hyper, inflation, and macro

Whoops, the /derpi/ thing / link to is pretty uhh, it wouldn't really be a great thing starting out.

It'd be pretty difficult for me to manage that + added complexity and another layer of image grabbing.


Probably going to dash some people's hearts here; I won't be importing the entirety of derpibooru in right away, if at all. I want the site to grow naturally without the bloat of 2m images off the bat. That's a lot of CPU power.

If I do something it'll be a slow trickle into the database to make sure I don't exhaust resources needed for real users.

Additionally during that process, that's the time I'd want to identify the site and original ID where the image came from. Be that in the description, or a separate json value in the generated output.

Damn. Unfortunate, but kinda understandable. Any chance you could at least get the deleted ones displaying though? And/or maybe have the site link for a derpi image go derpi,zizzy,org/#### instead? Or is that the same amount of hassle?

>>
>>35519758
Because the more people who know the credentials to the database, the more people who are able to access it and the greater the possibility of a data breach. Also, some web storage plans only allow for a finite maximum and a single database may exceed that limit.

That's a lot of Applejacks on Rainbooru.
>>
Will Rainbooru have standardization with their tags or is it up to the uploader to make tags however they think it fits the art?
>>
>>35519849
I'm going to implement tag aliases that attempt to account for various ways of tagging. I want most things to be in line with derpibooru like oc:name and artist:name. So with the aliases hopefully if it detects a known artist or oc it should automatically convert the tag to the proper format. Also I have noticed some people using e621's tag format so I'll need to convert from that to derpi format.

Filenames don't have all the tags. A GET request to derpi's API using the filename of the uploaded image could retrieve all the tags, among other things though.

I've been copypasting tags from derpi. Seems like the most efficient approach. That being said, an autotagger would be nice.

Does it refresh when you visit the site, or only when you set the filter? I can kind of see the logic of clearing the default filter if someone doesn't open the website for six months, but if someone is browsing actively using the same filter and six months in it suddenly turns off, it'd be weird.
Is there any downside to setting it to last till like 2099 or whatever MAX_INT seconds works out to?

Lmao no that comment is literally nothing. A mod is tired. That's it.
Later on the same mod did say that he and some others are organising an argument against the change, to discuss it with the rest of the staff. That there is the actually notable post. HOWEVER, the site owner - who's notoriously authoritarian - isn't just gonna back out because of a few staff being unhappy. And most of the staff are probably bootlicking enough that they won't even resign or protest in any way if they're shot down, they'll just accept things. Thing is, even if they wanted to back out, there will be artists from the SJW crowd who now have their attention on the situation and who will definitely boycott the site in that case. There's probably less of them than there are based artists, but the tankie owner almost certainly cares about them more. It's a lose-lose, it's not clear which way loses more, but it's clear which way the owner would really not want to lose. Derpibooru dug its grave and now there's no going back, no matter what they do.

Realistically? No. For sure some of the DB DNP'ers will post there, but I'm worried about those teetering in and out of the fandom finally deciding to leave it once and for all and not have to deal with DB's bullshit. I really fucking hope DB will eventually just man up and admit they fucked up (or at least just say they "jumped the gun"), but who knows. If they don't, it's gonna fracture the fandom, and I feel like DB and Rainbooru will just slowly sink into nothingness and then the fandom will be legitimately dead.

Sorry, I haven't been watching these threads that much, but me and some other artists are going to be jumping ship to rainbooru and twibooru when that comes out. Is there some kind of automatic transfer tool made for it yet or will there be one implemented eventually?

>>35510145
Rainbooru update. I have completed a basic set of mod tools and retard-proofed them. Subsequently, I hired two mods, added a staff page so you can see all the mods, made a link to the canary page, and added a public bans page. I have decided that in the interest of transparency, mods on rainbooru are not going to be anonymous, so I'll let you know that two guys I got where niggerdrawfag and patachu aka darkdoomer. I know both of them and think that they will do very well. If the do not, I will of course remove them rather than letting them go on a banning spree. And worry not, the mass delete function is hardcoded to the last 6 hours worth of posts and the ban function is hard capped at 24 hours.
>>35523040
Userbase has gone up. Statistics indicate the site has had 3000 unique visitors this past week, with 800 unique visitors a day. Seems most people just enjoy lurking and browsing for now. I plan to add notification bells for comments and watched tags. I hope that will boost user involvement as people come back to get new updates on comment threads and tags.

Hey, would it be possible to add an option on the upload screen to auto-import Derpibooru tags? Like an optional Derpi link input box and have the site grab the tags from there? It would make mass uploads so much easier.

>>35525019
No I literally just pushed the update when I restarted after the crash. Only new gifs should work. Old gifs need to be reprocessed to correct them.
>>
>>35525019
It might have something to do with the inage descriptors. The frames are probably correct; the issue is that they're not displaying in the right position
>>
>>35525022
ah, that'd do it then
>>
>>35525024
The problem is how gifs are compressed. When they are compressed not every frame is stored. Only the first frame and the difference between every frame and the previous are encoded. If you try to resize and image like that you will be resizing a bunch of differentials and pasting them in the wrong place in the master image or some shit. So before you resize a gif you have to render each complete frame from the file

A Derpibooru import page is up and running at rainbooru.org/port
This is the first iteration of the feature so only one image at a time. It automatically imports tags as well as the image. No comments or original postdates yet, just descriptions and tags. I have tested the feature a bit but I'm not sure if it's robust enough to stand up to everything you might try to plug into the import bar. Like webms for instance. Almost 100% certain webms will cause an error. Confirmed working for default derpy URLs like "derpibooru.org/images/image_id?some_other_bullshit
>>35525121
The tag adder is just a html form and early in site development some guy was trying to make a tagging macro and his browser autofilled it with a bunch of janky strings like [email protected] and 555@example.com and those tags got places on a lot of images
>>35525133

neat

Also, I would like to mention about a couple of small features of you don't mind.

The first one is if you could adjust the tags in alphabetical order.

The other one consists in the download of any image. When you see the thumbnail, there is a "serial number" that would reveal the upload of that image within the site. It's a small detail sure but it would work as a point of reference and would give info about the date of that upload on this site.
>>
>>35525949
perhaps an example works better. I mean that when you download an image, Derpi displays in the thumbnail the number of images uploaded up to that point. That Rarity image displays this thumbnail but its serial number (like the URL displays) is actually 2683.

Perhaps I am sounding really repetitive with this but it's a small detail that I would appreaciate quite a bit.
>>
>>35525949
>serial number
if you are suggesting the number be like the one on derpi we dont want that. we want our own hash so search engines correctly point to rainbooru
>>
>>35526086
got it.
>>
>>35526086
He's suggesting that Rainbo adopt the same principle as Derpi, that is to say, to have the image id saved in the image's name. I agree, I think it would be nice and sensible.
>>
>>35526086
If we want more than 65,536 tags total, such field will be necessary. These Anons >>35524224 >>35524233 have described how having unlimited tags is possible and it is done with something called a primary key. Said primary key can be used as what you have said.

Sijmilar to derpi's "derpibooru exclusive", there should be a "rainbooru/altbooru exclusive" tag applied. Wouldn't apply for images that got deleted off of derpi, and should be tagged with "deleted from derpi", "derpi deletion", or some variant of those.

When you hover over a thumbnail on Derpibooru, the tags appear like pic related.
I want this on Rainbooru. I find it useful because if you can't really tell what's going on in an image or who the characters are from the thumbnail, a quick glance at the tags can tell you if it's something you want to see or not.

>>35527753
Images should be tagged male or female based on the sex of the characters in the image, not their gender. Checkmate tumblrina.
>>
>>35527762
Then what's the point of the female tag if it doesn't actually refer to females? (Similarly for male if you'd like)
>>
>>35527777
your example was retarded. it applies to cases like this
>>35527672
>>
>>35527783
Assuming an explicit image I would go back to >>35527679. If SFW, then you can come up with some other tag if you'd like, which you can use in conjunction with other tags. If no genitals at all I think they call nullo, though I could be wrong.

>>35527822
>Art is not real life
That is true and is the only reason things like futa can exist. I don't see how this changes anything though. I'm saying to tag according to what's visible in the picture.

>The buck example
I got no clue what you mean.
>>
>what if an artist makes an alphabet character?
Post it to derpi where it belong
>>
So it looks like the thread is talking about rainbooru adopting e621's TWYS, which pisses off the creators with horrible contintuity even if it's in the same comic one page they might be tagged male and another they might be tagged something else like intersex even if its the same character, TWYS trumps 'word of god'.

in context of derpi's system, a femboy is just a male with a mare body and facial structure so e621 would be tagged as such unless we saw an actual dick but then how would you be able to tell the difference between a faggot femboy and a futa mare?
>>
>>35527831
>I don't see how this changes anything though
you just admitted that there's a difference. add 2 to 2
>I'm saying to tag according to what's visible in the picture
it's not always clear what's visible in the picture
how about actually using more tags instead of less especially since raindev wants to implement infinite amount of them
>>
So even if it's not real it doesn't change what's onscreen. If it's not visible then the artist can basically call it whatever the hell they want.
>>
>>35527862
you're a bit dense, aren't you?
>>
>>35527875
How so?
>>
>>35527884
Hi, newfriend
>>
>>35527891
So you got nothing? No argument as to why we shouldn't tag based on things explicitly visible in the image vs what the artist "feels" the character is?
>>
>>35527904
The question we should be asking is whether adding a tag will make it more difficult to accurately find/filter content we want when making searches.
I would vote TWYS because if you want mares, an image of a trap with no visible dick is the same. An "Affeminate" tag might be useful for those who want the kind of cutesy female-looking traps tend to be. e621's lore: tags may also be useful.
It doesn't mater, though. With the importer in place rainbooru will inherit derpibooru's tagging philosophy anyways and it'd be better to have consistent tagging. Unless you want to go through two million images retagging them to a system the fandom at large may not even be familiar with.
>>
>>35527884
i'm not gonna go through examples when you can't even grasp the concept
again: more tags won't hurt
>>
>>35527933
Since it's importing Derpi's tags, that's well enough. "Mares" with a dick are tagged as futa and not female. While perhaps not the most accurate, functionally it works well enough. Don't know what TWYS is an acronym for.
>>
>>35527951
Wasn't arguing against more tags, was arguing for the proper use of the female, male, and futa tags.

You could add nullo to that if you wanted to be fully complete. With those four tags it should cover any combination of organs I can think of. Anything else would be an additional descriptor on top of those.

>>35528159
Derpi doesn't have a gender tagged. I guess it's less relevant since it's SFW. Looks like a mare, nyx is a filly so if you we're to tag a gender it would be female. Derpi's tagging system has seemed fine to me. Basically >>35528166.

>>35527777
quads of logic

>>35527672
the answer is to put only nonbinary tag. Not male or female. Then add genital tags.

>>35527838
The following tags are as complete as I'm aware of:
Male/female, intersex/futa (futa implies intersex), cuntboy/dickgirl(shemale), busty boy (guy with tits), trap/crossdessing, and nonbinary (which I had to check due to mentions in this thread)
That last one actually isn't used in a practical sense that I can tell within the 20 non-safe images it's tagged with. The others have the flag in it or just some kind of speshul snowflek-tier tagging. Which honestly, doesn't even surprise me. The other tags are actually practical for tagging and filtering purposes, and are relatively easy to understand.

>>35527933
>>35528008
>>35528068

>>35528159

>>35527672
If you mean a changeling that can change gender at will, tag current gender. If you mean very masculine looking dude with a vagina, that's a "cuntboy". Very feminine looking and with a dick: "femboy" if dialogue refers as "he", and "dickgirl" if dialogue refers as "she" (usually boobs differentiate them, but with ferals there's no visual difference). If androgynous looking character with both: "herm", feminine: "futa", masculine: "male herm". Do NOT use "intersex" tag or whatever, it's too vague and have nothing to do with magical fantasy horses. Other boorus changed those tags to nonsense to be more PC, let's not repeat their mistakes.

>>
>>35527762
That's just stupid. You ARE aware that if image have multiple characters, tags would refer to any of the characters? So your example would filter out all m/f straight pics, instead of filtering futa. It's the exact same reason we have shipping tags, instead of searching "character1, character2, shipping" (that would show many undesirable results if you have more than two characters in the pic).
>>
>>35528493
learn to use filters then since your way is just as stupid in this situation
>>
>>35528502
In order to use filters, we need tags. If we use >>35527762 's system, we have no "futa" tag, only separate "female" and "dick" tags. Let me explain again why it's bad: if we have a pic with two futas fucking, and male looking at them, pic would have "male", "female", "cunt", "dick" tags. If we have a pic with male fucking female, pic would have "male", "female", "cunt", "dick" tags. Exact same tags as futa pic.
Now, if you use sane system, first pic would have "futa", "male" tags, second pic would have "male", "female" tags. Now we can use filters.

Nothing's wrong, it's fine. Though we need to restore tags that were deleted by mods over the years, like "HasbrOC", for example (refers to toy-exclusive characters that never appeared in the show, like Princess Skyla).

There is a memory leak issue associated with broken uploads.

For now, I just have to manually restart the site whenever the memory overloads.

It's "featureless crotch" then
>>
>>35527855
You can't implement an infinite amount of tags in a finite amount of time using finite tag-adding parallelism (i.e. a finite amount of people or even scripts creating tags)
>>
Is there anything wrong with Derpi's system? Does anyone have any actual complaints about how it tags shit?
If there are actual complaints maybe post them so we can brainstorm how to address them. Because I personally don't have any particular issues, so right now the discussion sounds like it's trying to reinvent the wheel for absolutely no reason, which is also doubly stupid since derpi is going to be the primary import source so adopting a different system will just add a huge workload re-tagging everything (and make it basically not feasible to import all 2M images).
>>
>>35529894
dude
don't you know of the shitstorm
>>
>>35529950
What shitstorm? Has Derpi ever been involved in any shitstorms regarding tags?
According to everything I've heard, Derpi is the best fucking booru in terms of both software/functionality but also tagging. Literaly its only problem is and has always been the staff team. So if I'm wrong and there have been tagging shitstorms, give me the quick rundown

that's because no one has dared to offer any alternative that could add more competition so they wouldn't enjoy such a ridiculous monopoly.

It was about freaking time to open up the market with its efficient fornat.

What ruins Derpi is not the site itself but the staff that owns it. Everything matters for that service and the mods are 0/10 and the rules are awfully abysmal.
>>
>>35529982
>>35529989
>>35529993
Are you a schizo? I'm in the fucking derpi alternatives thread created in direct response to this. I even talked about importing stuff from derpi to replace it. I've been in all of the death spiral threads, and I can tell you with confidence NONE of it has anything to do with how Derpi tags genders.
So my original question still stands: >>35529894 is there anything wrong with Derpi's tagging system?

>>35530010
>What ruins Derpi is not the site itself but the staff that owns it.
I literally wrote that in the post you're replying to:
>>35529973
>Literaly its only problem is and has always been the staff team.

Why does everyone have nonexisent reading comprehension? The discussion is about tagging benis and bagina. I'm saying I like how Derpi tags benis and bagina, and I'm asking if anyone has any concrete arguments not to just copy Derpi's tags and tagging conversions. This has literally nothing to do with the Derpi rules change shitstorm and their incompetent staff, except for the fact that the latter spawned these threads and therefore the reason we're discussing the former in the first place.

They do. Copy-pasting tags from Derpibooru is fine (unless their mods suddenly get new a spikeness of wokeness targeted at LBGT).

That's disabled until I find the culprit of this memory error. Whenever I reboot the site RAM usage slowly increases until it runs out of memory and crashes.

It's weird though considering when you upload the site jumps from 200MB to 1gb of ram. Would you estimate many of the images you port are not even 1 mb so there's no fucking way the memory is getting filled up with temp files. You uploaded 10 files before this latest crash (site crashed again btw) which could spawn up 10 processing threads (probably less) and even it each thread creates a copy of the while site code (they dont) that would only be 400 mb. At least this confirms the leak is somewhere in the upload code
>>
Since we're close to bump limit, here's a draft for the next OP. I've tried to update it to reflect the current situation.

Title: Derpibooru Alternative Thread #9

ITT, let's discuss the future of art preservation and boorus.

The long version:
After recent events, doubts have arose about the continuance of Derpibooru as the premiere image archival site for the fandom. Derpibooru recently went through a period of banning content they didn't agree with. This was brought on by accusations by journalists and twitter posters. Only after thousands of posts against the new policy and dozens of popular artists threatening to boycott the site were the changes reverted. While the offending policies have been removed, it is important for there to be competition in order to both ensure that Derpi is kept in check and that alternatives are available into the future.

TLDR:
There's other options.
-Right now Rainbooru is a good alternative to Derpi. (www.rainbooru.org)
-In the near future we can also look forward to TwiBooru, based on Philomena (from Twifag)
-ZizzyDizzyMC is working on pony booru based on Philomena too.

Specialized Boorus:
-booru.foalcon.com (foalcon)
-www.fluffybooru.com (fluffy ponies)
-lyrabooru.org (plushophilia)
-www.bronibooru.com (SFW, no shipping, no non-pony anthro, no translations)

Latest Developments:
-Improvements to Rainbooru, too many to list ^:) (www.rainbooru.org/changelog)
-Twifag and Zizzy making progress with Philomena (Nothing public yet)
-Derpi banning more art, situation deteriorating
-People are looking for alternatives

This is NOT the Derpibooru drama general. Please keep posts relevant to booru development. (>>>/mlp/derpi)

It's gonna happen again, especially with this line. They're gonna police the communities content again and claim it's not bias because it's majority rule.

which is why that we are going to need these boorus in the future for any possible turning point from these people.

Don´t stop even if there is a ceasefire for now.

Ok I capped out the max number of image processing threads at 6, maybe that will conserve RAM. Also thanks to whoever is uploading all the Pear Butter. I love her so much. Dont know who that yellow guy in some of the photos is, though. Cousin, maybe? He's a dweeb.

competition and a necessary free market of boorus. Monopolies don´t tend to work out all that well after a certain period.
>>
>>35532748
There's a difference between drama and people being afraid to post at all because of shadow banning.
>>
So people are trying to target Philomena with not complying with copyright laws.
>>
>>35532737
It's always good to have alternative in case anything like this happens again. It would be naive to trust solely in Derpi after this.
>>
>>35532766
And? Wouldn't derpi be slammed with the same allegations? It's just fear mongering.
>>
>>35532778
That' what they're going for but yeah. probably some fear mongering.

>>35532765
okay but what exactly was banned? the way i understand it they removed some barely pony related flaming content
>>
>>35532766

>>
>>35532786
The users? I don't know what you don't understand this wasn't an over night thing, this has been going on for years now.
>>
>>35532793
are you sure it was legit users and not just trolls that got banned? because i usually see the opposite which is artists asking to be removed and putting a ban on their art
>>
>>35532811
Legit users. Some from ponychan and others from 4chan. Shadow banned via rule #0 no explanation, no reply. They wanted a platform but didn't because they butt heads with other popular artists.
>>
>>35517826

>>35532789

>>
>>35532832
well, the way you described it sounds like they did start something after all. and i know that /mlp/ loves drama so it's not out of the question that they said more than was necessary. sure, rule #0 is as bad as rule 6 here but i feel that the truth lies in between
>>
>>35532856
The truth is they're bias and flippant went comes to their own rules. It applies well for others but when it comes to them and their hypocrisy it's not the same.
>>
So with artists deleting their stuff on Derpi, does that we can't post that stuff on rainbooru?
>>
>>35532898
No, it means we have to post it all on rain. The Derpi dnp is specifically for not posting on derpi.

the way i see it is that derpi made yet another minor fuckup and is already past it. meanwhile /mlp/ reacts with a bunch of threads about db downfall (one of them ready to turn into general) full of dramatic posts, complaints, mocking, the happening and basically everyone is ready to put Ron Paul in their name fields
db has been doing this shit on a regular basis then quickly reverting to normal in a matter of days and i'm surprised that some people still care or even bother noticing
you said that it's been going on for years (you also said that i'm against alternatives when i'm not. that wasn't even my point). in that case the alternatives should be up and running for years, not just because the bandwagon hit the road
oh and btw, notice that you already basically told me to fuck off and i believe that you keep this level of posting in the comment section on db making you fall under rule #0 (and rule 6 here for that matter. not that i'm some kind of rulefag) and reinforcing my suspicion that the truth does indeed lie in between
anyway from what i've gathered on both sites it's yet another instance of pic related
to all the people who want to make alternative sites: go ahead and make them but forgive me if i withhold my enthusiasm

Many people on 8kun said /b/ will never die the board owner will keep abusing you and keep crawling back, your alt /b/ will never succeed and for years that was true but then one day they board owner went too far and just like that the alternatives actually took off.
