This is the general thread for the alternative fan sites of the My Little Pony fandom. Discussion, development suggestions, and criticisms are all welcome here.

>Why alternate boorus?
Recent changes to Derpibooru has put its place as the premier location for pony fan art into question. So several new boorus have sprung up to provide alternatives. Many of the altbooru owners post in thread and listen to questions and comments from anons. Note that this is NOT the Derpibooru drama general. Please keep posts about Derpibooru in the thread on mlpg.co.

>Why alternate text sites?
Pastebin has begun deleting greentexts on the site. FimFiction does not allow stories in the greentext format, so a new home is needed.

I checked some stats recently.

All the downvotes on LGBTQ or BLM related images on Derpibooru vs on Ponerpics or Ponybooru on the same images on one year span.

The amount of upvotes/downvotes on nazi shit.
The amount of likes and favs Aryanne art receives on Derpibooru.
The queries on content that is generally hosted on altboorus.
The artists which content is no longer welcome on Derpibooru.

There's more far right users on Derpi than on Ponerpics, Ponybooru and Twibooru combined which means Altboorus aren't even good at welcoming nazis.

There's the real audience of the most popular altbooru, or at least the unique audience that care enough to upvote and fav things. This is the message that the booru want to give to the fandom

Is there any advice that can be given in regards to using sites such as pony.tube or smutty.horse on the user end? Other than common sense things like avoiding certain files not being able to be played in the browser or using handbrake to get the smallest size possible for better playback?
>>
>>37263112
Derpi has more overall users, therefore more people who don't agree with political mouthpiece bullshit images/don't give a fuck about a joke OC. Note that none of those things makes you "fae right" in any sense of the word.
In short, your bait is fucking shit, stop crying about muh "nazis" and hang yourself at the the earliest convenience ^:)

I told this story almost a year ago, but I will do it again. Its regarding the end of Fluffybooru. You can see the original posts here: https://desuarchive.org/mlp/thread/35945222/#q35955806

I'm going to try and post this in this thread, and the next. There's a possibility some or all of these posts may be deleted. Nonetheless, I feel the story needs to be told.

The truth was, the booru was in a constant state of decline. It is no small fact that the fluffy fandom had always seen itself as a niche fandom, especially since fluffies, by their nature, were a more mentally-challenged animal compared to their MLP counterparts. And when the fandom became focused on being original content as opposed to being an MLP meme, this gave more incentive for the abuse-centric fans to let go of their inhibitions. As such, the abusers kept gatekeeping, as well as harassing other people who do not follow their whim, or satiate their need for abuse.
>>
>>37264843
The problem, however, is that the more recluse nature of the fandom would inhibit it. To put into contrast, part of the reason why derpibooru has gone on as long as it did, and remains to have such a dedicated modding team, is because it is quite clear that most of the people at derpibooru are still MLP fans. The same would apply to the mods of the altboorus, perhaps even moreso because they lvoe MLP enough to disagree with derpibooru practices. But none of that passion could be seen in the fluffy fandom as time went on. When you put so much effort into hating a fictional creature, the question would then be, whats the point?

See, the early fluffy fandom was interesting. To quote Ferroter, the early fluffy fandom was typified as "a younger light-hearted brother of the 'darker' Blade Runner universe". Whether you see Fluffies as literal toys with programming giving organic parts, or as genetically-engineered animals, they were a slave race, much like the replicants of Blade Runner. Perhaps even moreso, because fluffies have limitations such as a lack of digits, a limited anatomy, and so on. The early to mid fluffy fandom had its share of people who were interested in worldbuilding, whether it was Vanner who tried to explain programming with "nanotechnology", Meh who went the Blade Runner route, or Carpdime, who has treated them as animals 'marketed' as toys.

But all this nuance got lost as the focus went on to become more about abuse, and fluffies as stress relief. People talk about Hellgremlins, but hellgremlins was really only a reflection of a decline. Whether it was "justifying the abuse" but making fluffies as ugly or detestable as possible, or people like gr1m_1 and GWN willing to admit their edginess and use fluffiness to exert their own inner sadism, the combination of these factors made the art and content more deplorable, to the point that any people who used to participate in the content would slowly lose interest in it, or it only attracts the "edgy" people.

And perhaps the most pronounced way the decline of the booru could be seen was in the loss of admin and morderation over time. Aichi was the main mod of the booru at one time, but got harassed enough that he eventually lost interest in the booru and its content. To my understanding, Hewmon was the same - he himself has admitted earlier that he does not wish to continue 'owning' the site. The departure of Hewmon saw a number of people leave the fandom, and asking for their content to be deleted. Some attribute it to Hewmon's departure, but I feel it was a general air of negativity that came with a combination of both the abuse and the drama.

>>37264862
The real bombshell came in March 2020. What happened was that the artist Fluffycommissions who had uploaded his contented anonymously, under his own account, and with the help of Foxhoarder, who lives in another country, had all his content deleted. Considering how some of the account was anonymous, or was posted from an entirely different IP, the deletions were done deliberately. It was later found out that the deletions were done by a rogue admin on the site. It became clear that Guzzi didn't know what he was doing (aside from footing the bill) or, even if he did, the booru had enough problems, perhaps reflective of the lack of a dedicated admin like Hewmon. According to Wet, Guzzi was less active after April, and was voicing an intention to quit.

If the rogue hacker incident caused the domnios to fall, the fallout from the discovery by Click youtuber was the straw that broke the camel's break. At some point in June or July, some youtube called the Click discovered the fluffycommunity subreddit. From there, his fanbase, mostly made up of edgy, impressional 13+ kids started joining the fluffycommunity subreddit. According to wetfluff, this saw the increase of anon comments on the booru and, perhaps due to a lack of coding knowledge from both wet and guzzi, their inability to control the situation finally persuaded Guzzi to burn all bridges.

However, I'm not going to blame the Click. Even if the Click did not discover the fluffycommunity subreddit, and with it the booru and its fandom, someone else would have. The booru had been a ticking time bomb, and its sordid nature was going to lend itself to destruction the more it would be discovered by the private eye.
>>
>>37264880
And its a shame, a shame really. For all the abuse, for all the scat, for all the shit-edits, the drama, the hatred and puerile edginess, there were some really interesting stories on the booru. Squeakyfriend once wrote a childrens storybook on the booru. Carpdime, while having done his share of abuse, also wrote and drew some really interesting cute vignettes. Mutagen wrote the really interesting Postfluff. And PeppermintParchment wrote about the Fisher and Kegstand. And there are more, in the history of the booru. I don't know if anyone else would be interested in looking into the history of fluffies but, if they do, I would recommend looking past the abuse, and into both hugbox and sadbox. Part of the appeal of fluffies is that it is an independent franchise unto itself. To me, fluffies have a lot of potential, if only people realised it.

Whatever the case, fluffycommunity.com has now become the main replacement for Fluffy pony content. How things will turn out remains to be seen

Still a work in progress, but this folder now has all the current images and stories from fluffybooru (this is not counting the deleted stuff) Its curently at 60k images.

For an alternate archive that has less more images but is far more indexed and curated, here is the older MEGA:
https://mega.nz/#F!k85xWLjR!o5KIjnDDXv5gLb-j38rT4Q

Both megas have been heavily updated recently. It is posted here as some people have previously expressed theor dissatisfaction with the direction taken with the Fluffycommunity site. Thus, these archives are available for anyone else who is interested in preserving fluffy content

Twibooru now has a section when reporting for Technical problems, and has a secret surprise when reporting things under Other.

I also talked with Pathos today. He says that the duplicates on the Foalcon booru are due to not being able to automate merging and having no mods to prune them.
His work has shifted away from Bronyhub to AI generation, including a text prediction mode, and a clop generator.

>>37269808
Do you think you could remove the 5 report limit for technical reports? I know the suggestion is to bundle as many as you can together but the way it usually goes is that you think you're done gathering reports but then a few moments later you find yet another thing to report. Honestly the report limit thing is the main reason I don't bother to report any of the issues on the boorus. The 5 report queue fills up fast and usually takes months before they clear up.
>>
>>37269874
I'll ask Floor about it.
I will say Twibooru is pretty good about getting stuff done, compared to something like Ponerpic's 302 hour turnaround(according to their statistics page). Any report that takes more than a day or two to process probably involves coding work.

Month 6 of https://ponerpics.org/images/1231984 being incorrectly merged.

>>
>>37269930
It's not just the report turn around time on PonerPics. Even after the report is actually resolved it somehow hangs around in the report queue for much longer, preventing new reports fron being filed.
>>
>>37269967
Not sure since Twibooru doesn't use the same software, but it might be a cache issue. In any case, you'll be getting your wish soon on Twibooru. Please don't abuse it–I haven't figured out the banning system yet.

speaking of Twibooru, is it intentional that users can see the staff’s favorited pictures?

>>37270522
Yes, it was pointed out that for whatever reason favorite pictures (not just staff's, it's just easier to get to staff profiles) are visible in profile and florb decided to keep it.

The fact that it's non-pony inherently makes it bad.

>>37270985
Actually, off the top of my head I can't think of any specific claims. I think it is fair to say that they have tried to position themselves as such in the past. Perhaps you're right that it was random Anons hyping it up as the "pony" booru. I will say that Twifag in particular has made such claims about himself however, though outside of these threads.

All in all, the disappointment in my post was regarding the site operators and not the site itself (the disappointment for that came much sooner). It was disappointing to me just because I had it in my head that the people responsible for Twibooru were about pony. Guess I was just wrong on that one.

>>37271029
I was under the impression that it was trying to be the "pony" booru, but as the other Anon said it could have just been random others trying to hype it up. If you look it up, you see what gets imported from Twibooru to other sites, it seems like it's nothing but non-pony that gets uploaded to Twibooru. And obviously it's staff approved because it stays there on Twibooru. Those things together is what brought on a lot of the original disappointment with the place.

>>37271031
Yes, but nhnb launched a couple of weeks ago and booru discussion has been here for the past year or so.

Clearly. That was just the impression I had been given by this thread prior to visiting it.

It's in his faves, along with EQG and humanized. So that kind of negates that claim.
>>
ITT: retards infighting for no reason at all making things easier for derpitrannies
Good job.
>>
>>37271090
Which means he's a furfag, because that opens the booru up to blatant furshit, same as how derpi keeps images like what boxless just deleted because they contain a horsecock...
AND LITERALLY NOTHING FUCKING ELSE THAT COULD BE AS MUCH AS COSTRUED AS BEING PONY RELATED

sacrifices have to be made for the sake of keeping the scope and resisting corruption, and if that means losing a few images where the obligatory pony can't be cropped out, so be it

An IP ban, then. Unless you're in censorshit country like russia, in which case any https request to a banned site would fail with connection refused, but that's testable by going to a different building.

Irrelevant. Again, letting front and center furshit on the site just because there's pony in a corner opens the site up to ARBITRARY furshit, as per for example https://derpibooru.org/images/2524171 that I've mentioned before

Will this also be done on general furry x pony images to reduce the amount of furry in the image as much as possible?

>>37271538
It (generally) stops at furry. If someone start bulk-uploading oc human art with little to no pony attachment it'll probably get the axe.

>why twibooru not have derpi IDs?
It's a feature, so you can use twibooru IDs in the filename and not have it look like you're just grabbing images from derpi. It's free advertisement if anyone wants to look up the source, and gives it staying power long-term - "I don't care I just want porn" fags would normally never leave derpi, but will start using twibooru if they need to to get sauce.

But yes, a way to search by derpi ID would be very welcome. For older stuff imported at the start you can use the description to search for it, but newer imports don't have that anymore.
>>
>>37271945
The flutter was original art, which was then cropped so the furry can be removed. Why can’t you read?

>>37271945
>twifag undeleting them now
twifag actually undeleted it three or more months ago, immediately after it was linked in the thread as an example of blatant obligatory pony furshit and didn't undelete several other images to the same tune NOT linked in the thread
>>37271964
It's not a fucking feature you retard. The actual filenames are indistinguishable from any other booru, there's no "this comes from twi specifically" marker on them so anyone who doesn't know of twi's existence will think it's just random numbers after failing to look the image up by ID on derpi or pony.
>But yes, a way to search by derpi ID would be very welcome.
There is, it just uses syntax not described on twi itself.

Dumbest thing I've ever seen.

- furry has significantly less archive-worthy content with the exception arguably being porn
- even so most furry stuff isn't worth archiving in the slightest
- you already missed 40+ years of furry history, what's the point of starting now

All three of these aspects are huge differences to pony archival and undermine the very concept
>>
>>37272121
I'd think that furniggers (like the people running TPA) would disagree with you about the first two points. As for the third, well, it's always better to start archiving later than never.
I really don't care what they do in their spare time but if they are using TPA money to pay for this I'll be canceling my donations too.
>>
>>37272100
>>37272072
Yes, any money you donate to zizzy/TPA/ponybooru is also being used on furshit archival.
>>37272121
there's also several orders of magnitude more furry content being produced; remember that entire Derpi archive is 2TB and all pony art would end up being 4TB tops
trying to archive (as opposed to having a curated gallery of """archive-worthy content""") furshit without ALREADY having a massive money supply FROM FURRIES is nonsense
trying to leech pony money for that is, well

look at what happens to every single retard who tries to drop pony for "perspective scope" of furry, every single time

Shit.
>>
>>37272178
>all pony art would end up being 4TB tops
You severely underestimate how much pony stuff is on on the Internet. Taking YT as an example, all the music posted as videos, YTPS, (tens of?) thousands of PMVs. Imageboorus take quite a lot of space but it's nothing compared to videos lasting from a couple minutes to hours.

TPA recently had to upgrade to 77TB of storage because their previous storage solution started to run out of space. And TPA definitely doesn't have all of pony, mostly just the songs and videos.
>>
>>37272178
>all pony art would end up being 4TB tops
Yea, thats why I have almost 10TB of it already right?
>>
>>37272388

pony ART, discounting music, videos, games, etc
either way that just serves my point that it's not physically feasible to archive furshit, unlike pony

I've never had any more issue with larger drives than smaller ones. Usually you can get a better value for the larger drives as well. I think I was paying under $150 per 8tb drive.

>magnetic tape
Usually it's the drives for these that kill the value even if the tape itself might not be too bad (also it's a lot more inconvenient than HDDs I'd imagine).

>>37272872

>I've never had any more issue with larger drives than smaller ones.
They're using less reliable storage tech, and in general hitting the limits for magnetic storage density.
>(also it's a lot more inconvenient than HDDs I'd imagine).
For active use, yes, tapes are one hundred percent archival, not something you pull images out on the fly.
>>37273169
>TPA nukes stuff on request

>>
>>37273181
>They're using less reliable storage tech
Only if you buy SMR drives. You can still buy conventional drives in those sizes. In fact, most of the largest drives are actually PMR/CMR. It seems SMR is mainly being used for cost cutting reducing the number of platters and heads in lower cost drives.

>>37273123
>Usually it's the drives for these that kill the value even if the tape itself might not be too bad
If you wanna do cold storage archiving, it's super cheap if you just go to an older version. Current latest tech is LTO9, which I'm not sure is even available to consumers. If you go down to LTO7, there are actually a couple of drives offered on ebay, for $2500 or so. LTO6 has a much wider selectin for maybe $500. LTO5? $150-ish.
But go down to LTO4 and you get stuff like this https://www.ebay.com/itm/384262898726, which lets you use stuff like this https://www.ebay.com/itm/254697153229. That's $7 per 800GB tape, or $8.75 per TB. That tape pack WITH the reader is about the same value/TB as your 8TB drive, and from then on it's more than twice as cheap to get more storage.
LTO5 is a similar story - the drive is a bit more of an investment (like I said above, about $100-200), but the tapes hold 1.5TB each and if you find a deal like https://www.ebay.com/itm/284273032624 that's $8/TB. LTO6 is where it really starts to become impractical, because not only are drives going for $400+, but also cheap tapes are that much more difficult to find, so you're not gonna save more - in fact, it'll probably be more like $9-10/TB. The only advantage is that at 2.5TB per tape, it basically makes organisation and storage easier compared to LTO5 (1.5TB) and LTO4 (700GB), so if you wanna archive like 70TB you won't have a hundred tapes lying around, only about 30.

>enabled IDs
IDs are basically thread-local namefagging. Boards with IDs have a very different overall attitude to those without IDs, and it's one I really do not like. The whole point of anonymity is that the post is important rather than the poster; with IDs in the thread, people start to build up ad hominems and discussing individual posters rather than just their posts.
95% of shitposters can already be identified by style, or just by virtue of the fact that the posts are bait (and who they were made by is irrelevant). The 5% of cases where someone samefags a genuine-looking conversation, and does so in a way that actually manages to pass off as real, isn't worth the shift that IDs will bring. Not to mention that it's pretty fucking easy to reset an ID, if someone's actually dedicated to putting effort into their shitposting.

>generals moved to their own board
The board is nowhere fast enough for this to be a problem. Maybe you could add a couple more pages to the board to achieve the same effect, but even that does not really feel necessary. Doubly so if EqG got split off, so the half-dozen EqG generals and the 5-20 (depending on time of day) EqG slide threads would all be gone, that would free up a bunch of catalog space.

>low effort threads banned
Ehh, while I don't think it would be particularly detrimental, I don't see much benefit either. Writing a 15 word low effort prompt is really not hard at all, so I really don't think it would do much against shitpost threads. It would just annoy people occasionally. And occasionally, threads born out of an interesting OP picture with no comment can actually grow into a great discussion.

>turn off flags
They're not used universally, but they're a fun feature which brings no harm. Some people complain that they're being used as pseudo-namefagging, but there are still enough people using them that I don't think it's nearly as big a problem as some are making it out to be. Also, if more people used a flag it would make them even less like namefagging.
Certainly i find flags to be much less namefaggy than IDs in a thread.

Oekaki is just MS paint in your browser. Would make things like those MSPaint draw threads much more streamlined (just draw directly in the reply box and post), and might also encourage people to doodle in other random threads.

The idea is good, the implementation we got is bad. There are too many of them, and they are useless. Flags are meant to represent the poster, not something else.

Oekaki is like having a little paint app in the post form. You can draw doodles and post them immediately without having to open an external app. I think only /i/ has that function enabled, but with 4chanX you can put it in every board.

That's a falseflag that everyone keeps repeating for some reason. No, I've posted on boards with IDs, and they're just shit.

>>>37274095
>People use them as an excuse to push EQG and G5 into even more threads.
It's a very convenient market for which posts to completely ignore, as barbiefags out themselves with a tiny 16x16 or something image instead of having to make me look at a full-res barbie image. That said, there's a tiny userscript that completely hides barbie and G5 flags - I don't remember what it was called, but I'll try to find the link.
>Also, it's basically namefagging.
Yeah, I can see that, though like I said in my post I think it's much less than namefagging. Also, it's only even approaching namefagging because a small portion of the board uses them - if every other post had a flag, it would completely fix the "recognisable poster" problem.

I do agree that sometimes IDs can turn into identities other than Anonymous. It would be better to just have proper moderation of trolls than to enable IDs.
>generals
Generals break up the flow of the board the same way EQG does. If we had our own site I think having the generals on a separate board wouldn't be that much of a problem. Filters are also a solution but why half ass it?
>flags
Flags defeat the point of anonymity because it gives a face to posters other than Anonymous. It gives people a reason to dismiss posts through, "Oh he's a Celestiafag probably /nmp/ I won't read his post". It doesn't really add anything except tribalism. Most flags use it for psuedo-avatarfagging. (sunsetschizo, glimmerflag)
>>37274008

I don't see it as any different from posting a full picture in thread. When I voted yes to flags it was before I knew that barbie flags would be added.

>>37274137
>Generals
Generals, unlike EQG, I don't think could even be definitively defined. Such a set up would basically result in any thread that caught on for more than a single thread to be moved to the general board. I don't see issue with waifu generals, threads like this, the PPP, drawthread, or many of the others. A lot of the generals that are bad I think would see a lot of improvement from the removal of barbiefags.
>>
>>37274137
>Generals break up the flow of the board the same way EQG does
I really don't see the comparison. I come to a pony board to look at ponies. When I see a pony general I think "cute pony, but I'm not interested in the thread" and scroll past, just the same as if I see any other thread that doesn't look interesting. When I see a barbie I think "ew barbie", and that's why it doesn't belong on a pony board.

>It gives people a reason to dismiss posts through, "Oh he's a Celestiafag probably /nmp/ I won't read his post".
The thing is flags are a conscious choice. If you put on a Celestia flag, you're openly identifying yourself as a Celestiafag.
Something a lot of people forget is that you can achieve the exact same thing with a reaction image. The same Celestiafag, if he wanted to make it clear he was a Celestiafag before flags were a thing, only had to post an image of Celestia. In fact, you still see this being done with e.g. glimmer images, due to one simple fact - an image thumbnail is several hundred times larger and more visible than a flag. So images have always been a way for people to give their post some sort of identity, and it's a much more effective way than flags, to the point where it's still used today.

The only problem I see is if you're e.g. the only one using a particular flag, and you keep it permanently on. But again, that wouldn't be a problem if more people used flags, so people like that wouldn't be uniquely recognisable (though even right now identifying people by flags is extremely unreliable).

>>37274158
>I don't see it as any different from posting a full picture in thread.
Other than the size difference, there's one huge advantage of flags: there's a hardcoded set of them, and it's absolutely trivial to filter out the EqG ones. I found the flag filter script, by the way: https://github.com/MaresOnMyFace/flag-hider
Install this and never see another barbie fag again, as if they had never been added.

In comparison, EqG images are almost impossible to filter out. The best solution we have is an insane addon that filters images based on a several hundred thousand hash blocklist, which is not only crazy, but also easy to circumvent by just creating a new image. Even if the filters are constantly updated based on art posted to boorus and whatnot, anyone can trivially make a new screenshot of EqG shows. And even easier - just edit a single pixel to make the image have a totally different hash value.

If flags make barbies post fewer images because they can just set a flag to trumpet their shittiness to everyone, and I can filter that 100% reliably in 69 lines of code (nice), I'll take that over a futile attempt to filter hundreds of thousands of MD5s that a shitposter can spend five seconds to defeat if they ever really want to.

point being that it's an attempt to distract people from ongoing discussion about how psycho jerry a shit and is using money given to him for pony for furshit (or as Rome says, NOT for his pony archive) instead
>>
>>37274158
A continuation of a thread is fine but after the original conversation is finished it turns into a general with long greens and sporadic discussion. Then they should be moved to a general board where it's slower or even permanent. Otherwise you get necrobumped gens that take up space on the catalog that really don't produce much daily and are dependent on one or two writefags to update their longstanding greens. That is when it starts disturbing the flow of a board.
>>
>>37274254
It's not an attempt at anything. If you want more people to know about the Pony Archive issue you should make your own thread instead of leaving it in this general nobody checks.
>>
>>37274286
okay, psycho jerry, I'll totally follow your advice to have the thread hidden by majority or deleted by jannies for being outside its intended general, instead of posting it IN said intended general, where people discuss it just fine when not being distracted by your desperate attempts to guide conversation away

They shouldn't be in pony threads to begin with. Filtering only allows them to proliferate.

>>37274275
A general board I feel would only make generals even worse, as they'd get even less traffic and visibility. Which would really harm threads trying to get new people involved.

>>37274275
>Otherwise you get necrobumped gens that take up space on the catalog
>space on the catalog
As I've mentioned above, how is this even a problem? Banning all the EqG threads would already free up more space than the generals are taking up, I feel. If necessary, a couple more pages could even be added for the board. But I still feel like neither of those measures are necessary.
A board has a shortage of catalog space if good threads with active discussion regularly die just because there was a brief lull of posting. If you can be participating in an interesting discussion, then you go have dinner, then come back and the thread's dead despite the discussion being left off midway, then the catalog is too short. A problem like that was rampant on /vg/ for example - slower generals for slightly less popular games had to constantly bump every half an hour or so, because otherwise they'd get pushed out by the 500 gacha generals cycling the board. Then /vg/ catalog space was doubled, and now even slower generals can survive at their own pace, even if sometimes there's an hour or two without new posts in them.

/mlp/ does not have this problem at all. During peak hours on an active day, it takes maybe 4-5 hours for a thread to archive. Off-peak and on slower days, it can take 12-16 hours. If there's active discussion going on and the thread is actually good and interesting, it's very, very rare for it to archive without someone at least bumping it.
Segregating the generals would add maybe 20 spots to the catalog. It might extend the time for a non-general to archive by maybe half an hour, at most. There's nothing to fix, and if there were, moving the generals out wouldn't do much at all.
>>
>>37274325
>Filtering only allows them to proliferate.
Not sure what your logic is. Barbiefags - the actual people who like and post eqg - are around, and will remain around unless EqG gets banned and/or split off. Barbie flags are one possible manifestation a barbiefag can use to signal their presence and shove it on everyone. Before barbie flags existed, the same posters were always there, often posting barbie images in threads. After barbie flags, the exact same people are making the exact same posts, just occasionally with the addition of a barbie flag. Had flags been added without EqG versions, the exact same people would still have been making the exact same posts, just without using flags.

So the flags don't actually change the content on the board. The only thing they do change is that you can see that the poster is an EqGfag, and you can see the EqG sprite. Filtering them doesn't make anything "proliferate" - again, barbiefags have been making, are making and will continue making the same posts regardless of whether they use a flag or not, and regardless of whether you can see their flag or not.

So, when talking about flags specifically and nothing else, I really don't see what downside filtering them could have.

Yes. IDs have nothing to do with identity. You still remain anonymous as ever, and nobody can track your posts across threads or boards.
The only thing they do is prevent samefagging by showing what posts in the thread belong to each poster, which in non-samefagging scenarios is usually already pretty obvious by following reply chains.
So if you bring up anonymity you're a tard, hence the "muh".

I see quite a few people in here claiming that this and that post is psycho jerry. I must live rent free in everyone's head. Some of you are even claiming TPA deletes stuff, like damn if I'm deleting stuff why do we have a 77TB server almost full.

Speaking of saving space I'm moving our non-pony general archive off of the hardware it was on (this includes the /k/ archive) onto my other hardware node. When done this will free up a little over 10TB on the main node allowing for another year or so of archiving before that space too will be gone by the archival of the pony.

I recently started this sad sack of shit called The Furchive. I asked ~7000 furries to help with this. Unfortunately furries aren't interested in saving or identifying shit worth saving. I guess there isn't anything.

The fortunate thing for you guys is that on July 23rd thanks to the effort from SOME of you, nearly every unlisted pony ever posted on the chans or eqd or several other forums will be stored away in the /quickchive/ portion of TPA's main site.

Some of you know me, some of you know I hate YouTube deleting shit, and *some* of you know that it isn't just your community that has shit on YouTube.

Is TPA immune to DMCA/takedowns? I think that was the concern here. While you're known to be mentally unstable, I don't think anyone was seriously claiming that you just delete stuff at will.

>I recently started this sad sack of shit called The Furchive.
>Thank you for removing your support for noticing.
The issue isn't you archiving furry shit. Rome has like a dozen TB of furry, too. The issue is when you use funds from "The Pony Archive"'s subscribestar to fund "The Furchive".
I realise that in practice, if you buy storage for TPA but then it's just sitting free and you wanna archive furry, it's not always practical to separate what funds bought what storage disks and what hardware etc. But a basic rule of thumb would be, if people pay you SPECIFICALLY to host TPA, then that money should go to TPA and not compromise on anything else - e.g. if you put furchive on the same storage as TPA, and it starts running out of space, first thing you do is move furshit out of TPA's server.
Once you're well organised enough to be able to remove "the furchive" from the subscribstar's description, people might calm down.

You'd have to actually earmark it for that when you started the pledge. I'm not going to use existing funds for that unless someone who was already an existing donor asked to pledge a portion of their donations to that project (or any other project. There's still donors who earmark a small portion of funds to keep the original /k/ (general) archive online. So when I design a new server I have to make sure I have *somewhere* to keep that data online.
Needless to say, as it stands now that site doesn't look like it's going anywhere because they (furries) don't seem to care that a very good portion of their shit from 2007-2017 is about to go straight to the garbage bin.
It's a pretty big loss, but if they don't care I don't care. I just though it'd be something to see if anyone was interested in and if it brought money in - cool, get them to fund a separate server and rack it. TPA benefits by getting newer hardware while we're at it. Z+ grows a bit and becomes even more capable at taking on ever larger projects in the process.
TPA is by no means the only archive of pony, and hopefully it never will be the only archive. The entire project is about trying to preserve as much pony as possible and there's a lot of folks in the project that have their own archives of stuff. I'm really thankful for that as their own projects and help means that TPA becomes more complete with time.

What, on some dicksword server? Anyone on those is a bookburner, why would they help you save anything when they want to destroy stuff that is not theirs?
>Unfortunately furries aren't interested in saving or identifying shit worth saving. I guess there isn't anything.
Additionally, furry stuff in general isn't under urgent threat of destruction, it has dozens of sites and those sites don't openly yeet certain types of content (in no small part because they can't track it hur hur), so furfags obviously don't care about archival, unlike horsefuckers with the 1.5 sites total.

Everything is under Z+, as in: everything in the network is hosted by myself.
In terms of steps being taken: If a project isn't garnering financial support (relative to how much resources it uses or requires) it doesn't get expanded and is placed on hold until someone wants to fund it.
>But it's on the same hardware!
Most people don't realize that the hardware that will be powering most Z+ sites from now on, except TPA / Project Vinyl was purchased solely on my dime. I have a few paying clients that use a portion of the hardware to help subsidize the cost of hosting. This benefits the network, and thus benefits the overall sustainability of TPA.
It allowed me to discontinue 3 EU servers and will be discontinuing 2 USA servers soon. These savings from canceling rented services in favor of my self-owned system help offset the increase in running costs.
>But I don't want fur shit to be funded!!!
If a project doesn't require any funding to start then it doesn't get any funding. Since the new hardware is so powerful, it has cost nothing but some wasted free time. Improvements were actually made to the software I use in the process, making having tried this a net benefit to TPA, and you guys. I even caught a bug in my code that only happens on new installations.
>what does this fur trash take right now
1gb ram, 1 "core" (0.5 core limit), 20gb of HDD.

>you never told us you bought new hardware, what is it?
It's a 28 core, 256GB ram, 5x NVMe monster. It's got a 70TB ZFS array built in for project and client block-storage. Dual NVMe cache for the array for performance. Separate NVMe's for client, project and OS use.
>bruh
Yes it cost myself an arm and a leg. I really wanted to get rid of all of the rented units and be entirely self-owned. It's a net benefit for everyone.
>how is my money used
Pays the monthly and yearly bills for TPA, Project Vinyl, Ponybooru, various vps, streaming network for the anniversary stream, domain renewals. Keeps everything online. Any excess is just stashed for hardware failure or build-up when a new server is needed.
Eventually TPA will need a larger node as our data set will outgrow the ~77TB volume. Next server will probably have 24 full size bays - like a 2 deep 12 bay Super Server from Supermicro.

Both the main and the backup (cellular) internet connection went down exactly the same time around 2am local time, and recovered around 4am. Seems like the service provider(s) uses the same connection on their side for both. Good to know...

There might only be a couple lines going to your area. For example where I'm at there's a line that goes to the north and a line that goes to the south. A while back a landslide took out the one to the north and a fire destroyed the one to the south. Whole county was without internet for the better part of a week.

Oh, btw whoever scraped ponebin yesterday, please stop. There is nothing on it what's not in one of the listed archives what's on the main page.
I can upload the mashed together dataset what is used as the source, but it contains many many errors (like striping away formatting). I recommend downloading the archives from the list on the main page, instead.
>>
>>37284484
>cancel the cellular internet
Its only 3$ a month for 15Gb. If there is a power outage then the FTTH connection is unavailable usually, but the cellular one works as that is considered as an emergency service (not the internet connection but 2G voice calls, and since its a 4G only network it means that mobile data is highly likely always available too).
The whole mobile service went down yesterday.

I will have to switch to another landline (plus mobile) internet provider in the upcoming years anyway as the government decided that they don't like this ISP and actively trying to sabotage it : preventing them from partaking in auctions for frequency bands, denying them building permits while the other ISP is free to tear up my garden to install their underground optical cable which no one will use nor does it need a 1m diameter conduit for a 0.5cm optical cable, etc. The other ISP will literally tear up my garden in the 1-2 month . And everyone's in this residential area, I saw the plans they literally want to demolish personal driveways, drill under roads & buildings, etc. Reason? By code can't install the wire to the posts, as the the highest wire is the power one, then 1m below that ISP1 (coax), one meter below that ISP2 (optical), and by code they would be required to install it 1 meter below ISP2 which is too low. Fuck this stupid code, why can't they bundle together the 3 ISP cables? Optical cables don't interfere with the others...

I don't know about pony.tube. Yes, for smutty it's convenient to upload formats that play right in the browser, if your goal is to share something and maximize the number of people who will see it. Which formats to use is probably best found through experience (e.g. open stuff locally in your browser to test)
There's also the ShareX uploader, which could be handy (you can also POST to that URL with curl if you want).
Finally, the smutty filename is generated from the upload time. I've been thinking of a user script that will add the time next to any smutty link, but I haven't gotten around to it

I think it's time for an updoot.
First things first, thanks to those anon who's helped out, emailing me good advice and offering dev support. At this moment, Ponepaste now has two devs working on the site me and another anon. (I won't say who, as it's his choice to put his name to the project).
Anyway, he's been working hard teaching me how to do things differently and going through my alphabet soup. Now the site runs much faster, the security hole has been patched, the database has been restructured. I probably can safely say (at this moment in time) the code is a fraction of the paste framework. In other words, the front end looks the same but the engine behind it is different.

Now for the good stuff. I've decided to make the data in the database valueless as possible. So emails are being scrubbed from the database, we have a new system from where you can recover your account using a recovery key (in which you copy or download). On top of that, the recovery keys are regenerated when you change your password.
So if Celestia forbid, there is another breach, the collateral damage will be minimal as it'll be just username and hashes. This doesn't mean it'll be an excuse for weak security, as the website will be going through a testing phase before release.
The captcha system has been overhauled, now with the reporting system, I'll allowing guest pastes once more. (Though all guest pastes will be public) this is due to spam prevention, and it'll be easily reported.
Guest paste and the registration form will have a captcha.

After the testing period, there will be new features added, till then the website will function mostly the same.

Sorry for being a bit vague on some things, I don't wish to make false promises until the testing phase.
>>

>>37286749

>>37286749
>recovery key
I would say still email it to the newly registered user immediately and ask to confirm the registration with the received key. No need to store the email address, just make sure that the user has one copy of the key for sure. Because 99% won't save the recovery key, and/or lose immediately.
>front end the same
Ah, I was hoping that you remove the 20 frameworks that the ui depends on.

Other stuff:
>1
Can you remove the ability to create unlisted pastes? Imho they are pointless. Add private ones, but not unlisted. Or make it time limited unlisted, like unlisted for a week max then it switches to private.
Reasons: there are a few people who like to put only one paste public and fill it with links to unlisted pastes of their stories instead of having the stories public. Its annoying.
>2
Will you add periodic dumps of all public + unlisted pastes with a separate metadata file?
Every paste in its own txt file named the ID only, and one common file with the metadatas of all pastes in the dump.

I'd recommend removing all the spoiler tags for one.
Probably keep the episode and season tags, but add a shorthand like s1e11. Of course two-parters would need two aliases, like s1e1 and s1e2 both being aliases for Friendship is Magic.
Maybe have a backgrounds tab with one column for gradient, simple, transparent, checkered, etc. and a secondary column for the solid colored backgrounds.
In the "often forgotten" section, I'd add male and female. Might also move some of those tags into their own column for art type; irl, cosplay, plushie, merchandise, traditional art, animated, gif, webm, comic, etc.

NFT, or "non-fungible token", in the technical sense means a cryptocurrency asset which is unique. In other words: normal tokens are fungible, so for instance if you have 1 ETH or 1 BTC, it's equivalent to any other 1 ETH or 1 BTC. Non-fungible tokens deliberately break fungibility by making each individual instance identifiable. NFTs can thus no longer properly function as currency (since fungibility is a core property of a currency), but they can be used to represent other non-fungible assets. For instance, crypto collectible games - like Cryptokitties, if you're aware of that - have each collectable represented by an NFT.

More recently, there's been a shitty trend of using NFTs to represent "ownership" over "art pieces" in an extremely poorly implemented and hodge-podge way, that got aggressively marketed to retards. Basically someone makes a drawing or whatever, mints an NFT and says "this particular token is the official representation of my drawing!", and then people buy that token for whatever fucking reason. Quite possibly one of the worst ways to make use of NFTs, but somehow became extremely popular and also extremely infamous when people realised how retarded it is, and so now among normies "NFT" is synonymous with "shitty art marketplace backed by poorly-implemented NFTs".
>>
>>37290689

Sorry for the ~30 min ponebin downtime. I was reconfiguring my whole home network to use a different subnet.
Fucking idiot IT guy at the other company where I have to VPN into decided that
"Wouldn't it be fun to use 192.168.0.0/16 for the IPs that the VPN assigns to the clients fucking up everyone's home network?"
"Oh but 99.9% of home networks use the 192.168.1.0/24 subnet which falls into perfect VPNs range? Too bad, let 50 people suffer and wonder why the VPN randomly does not work or why they don't have internet when connected to the VPN."

Assuming uniform distribution you can take any random amount of subset of the original and still get the same distribution.
Still those 100 votes were achieved too fast imho. Might be rigged.
>>
>>37301757
>Assuming uniform distribution you can take any random amount of subset of the original and still get the same distribution.
There's a very key word here, and that is
>random
The first 100 people to respond to the survey is not really a good way to get a random sample. Even if you take the entire corpus of users and pick out a random sample to contact directly, that already introduces a bias due to voluntary participation - in other words, you'll only get responses from people who feel like filling in a survey. This matters because people who like the status quo and have no strong feelings are less likely to bother than people who want to express some strong opinion. Usually you just have to live with that, but in this case even the initial selection wasn't really random, favouring people in certain timezones or who check the thread at certain times.

>>37302321
I feel like some of these questions could use a "kind of" answer. e.g.,
>Did you understand the format system? (Green, text, pastedown, etc)
...well, I could kind of bludgeon it into doing what I wanted, but if you asked me exactly how the Pastedown syntax worked? Nope. I just tinkered with it until I got something "close enough".
>Was finding a paste easy using the archive? / Have you ever use the Discover page?
I'll be honest, I can't remember the difference between these two. There was one that showed you popular/new pastes, and one that let you search I think, and I know I visited both so I answered 'yes', but... which one was which?

>Rate the tagging system
Also, not an issue with this question, but the only issue I had with the tagging system is that it was impossible to find existing/aliased tags for things, and so it was kind of a crapshoot for what a tag would actually be on a given story. e.g, is it:
>Apple Bloom, or Applebloom?
>rgm, /rgm/, Royal Guard Mares, or just Royal Guard?
>Archive, Thread Archive, Thread Directory, Thread Story List, etc
I realize adding in some kind of tag tracking is probably vastly below other upcoming features, but it's a feature that is deeply useful if you want to have users really rely on tags for searching.
>>
>>37302460
Thanks for the feedback.
Overhauling the tagging system is on the to-do list. The dev anon is already restructuring the database so a booru style tag system can be built.

If any other anons have feedback like this then reply here then I can save your posts and compile them later.
>>
>>37302480
Thanks. I don't want to give the wrong impression by just bitching here; I answered the actual poll by honestly saying by and large the site did exactly what I expected it to and functioned excellently in that goal. The fact that you're running into issues like this is only because you're already stretching above and beyond the platform this is all based off of (Pastebin) and into entirely new territory.

Okay, so I've finally decided to take the time to try out different boorus aside from derpi and I had a couple of questions relating to twibooru

My first question is concerning pic related
I want to have the images expand in a popup window while hovering and can't quite figure out how to wrap my smoothbrain around making it work through imagus. I was able to just take the existing rules that were in there for derpibooru and substitute a url here or there to make it work for ponybooru since it's basically a straight clone, not sure if it's even really correct but it works anyway. Obviously this won't work for Twibooru and if anybody could help or point me in a direction to figure it out that would be rad.

Secondly, if I try to save any image the default download name for every single one is simply either full.jpg or image.jpg for example depending on what size I have it at. Is there anyway to have it just save as the file number like other boorus when viewing the full image like 123456.png instead of just full.png or am I going to have to just manually rename everything as I go?
>>
>>37304908
click the (eye)VS symbol and download that for the image number

>>37304988
Ah, I hadn't thought of that, good looking out anon.
I still have the habit of right clicking to 'save image as' so I'll keep hope that it gets changed one day to work like other image sites or at least have an option to alter the behavior when downloading images. But at least this solution saves me from having to name them myself as I go

>>37305097
>>37305119
Thank you based anon. You da real mvp
>>
>>37305135
Huh, I never realised that on derpi you could just right click the full-size image to get the correct filename. I've always been clicking on VS or DS by force of habit.
>>
>>37305633
DS has its advantage, it shows a download dialog, not just loads the image in a new tab.
>>
>>37305645
I mean, same thing as right-clicking a full image on derpi (as I just learned).
>>
>>37305633
Requires first fullsizing the image.
>>37304908
Manually rename because Twibooru is stupid and Florb is a an autist who doesn't want to implement what derpi did (their "full" version points at the same filename as VS link), or use View/VS/Download/DS buttons.
If your downloader is URL-aware, you also could grab part of the link, since it contains the ID.
>>
>>37305769
You can set it to automatically load every image full size by default in site/user settings

"Full size" on Twibooru specifically points to full.{ext}, not {ID}.{ext} like Philomena, retard.

I don't see me saying anything about where it points to, just saying you can make everything full size all the time ID or not dipshit

Okay I'm back after a few months what's the status of current boorus?

Ponybooru seems to get less image uploads than others and follows DNP and is funneling its money to a fur archive (what went wrong?), but it also seems to have people actually liking and commenting on new images.
>>
>>37309410
>DNP and is funneling its money to a fur archive
From what I understand that is a "at request" basis on whoever is giving the money. By default all the money is still going to the pony stuff.
I can only assume someone who was giving money wanted furry stuff on there and complained

Zizzy you nigger you should learn to COMMUNICATE. What everyone saw is that you subscribestar money was being funelled into a furry archive. What you're saying now is that apparently one guy was happy to pay you to start a furry archive, and nobody else had their money go towards that. So don't fucking tell people that they're all paying for a furry archive now - of course they're gonna be extremely mad if you say that. So don't just make them mad for no reason if it's not even true.
