Image importer:
https://github.com/fallenPineapple/Philomena-Importer

Derpibooru has long been the center of image archiving for the My Little Pony fandom. But as recent events have shown, the owners and operators of that website are no longer interested in being an impartial image archive site, instead preferring to run an activist website for their own political biases. Large swathes of pony content face an uncertain future on that site or are effectively banned outright. The only way to guarantee that any site on the internet will impartially host content is to run it yourself. Thus, we made PonerPics.

Ponerpics.org is an image booru hosting pictures for the My Little Pony fandom with a particular emphasis on freedom for its users. Rules are minimal: the only existing rules are that images fall within legality, are relevant to ponies, and that no forum posts, comments or images are spammed. We're considering rules respecting the rights of artists and these may be added in the future. Ponerpics is a completely apolitical site. We do not care if your image expresses Nazism, Communism, Anarchism, sexuality of any kind, or if it expresses nothing at all – so long at it is pony. We merely host content for everyone. All legal content is permitted and there are no blanket bans or default filters for politics, Nazism, Communism, or OCs like Aryanne. For those who do not want to see certain content, like politics or fetishes, our site provides global filters to allow even logged-out users to browse as they please. This is a feature we intend to expand upon in the future.

Ponerpics is the combined effort of Atlas, Lotus, and Pupperwoff, the creators and administrators of mlpol.net, npfchan, and ASPNetChan. It is built upon the Philomena code developed by Derpibooru. Although the version you are seeing now is fairly early and is likely to encounter technical difficulties as it develops, we hope to improve the site over time and help it grow so that there may always be some corner of the internet where ponies may be posted freely.

Nice and I'm doing my part to put this site ahead of the competition! I'm not part of the staff but I'd like to ask anons to do their part and put in an hour to add the best art and test features. It's not part of the rules but I recommend quoting the original descriptions of works from Derpibooru, so a minimum of history is lost.
Also while the site is new it's possible to establish changes in precedent regarding what tags can be used (the more images there are the greater the cost of switching). So go ahead and suggest how tagging can be improved to minimize images missing from relevant searches.

I'd like to think it's in addition to. Secondly and most importantly this one is ran by the administrators, moderators, janitors, and other great people who make /MLPOL/ have a great team.
Thirdly, because this is with trusted people there is a place for all works that won't be fucked around with. Either in shadow banning, quiet deletion of certain works, or making it harder for some users.

The biggest tipoff is that it's pinned, but I'm not exactly sure who owns it either.
Speaking of not exactly sure would politics (and non-poner related pictures/content) be allowed on ponerpics?

Well, they had better make a policy page soon, because right now it isn't clear how it's run or who runs it.
Transparency is the key, if you want to attract artists and a sufficient tagging community. Rainbooru and Ponybooru are already picking up steam right now.

Fuck Derpibooru! I posted on their forum and said "Add me, SilverStarApple, to your DNP list because I hate communism and this site's staff is full of communists."
What did they do?
Gave me a one-week ban with an obvious lie in the ban message.
Rule #6 - SilverStarApple7 ban evading. Go to Support if you want to appeal. (Ban ID: SF10165)
I wasn't trying to appeal to them or beg for my ban to be removed, I was telling them to never put my art on their website again! I was spitting on their website's grave!

So are DNPs planned or not? With DNPs, you'd be competing against Zizzy/Ponybooru. Without DNPs, you'd be competing against Rainbooru. Both have a clear niche - a lack of DNPs is useful for archiving but can also scare away artists. So one booru that's artist-friendly and one that is archiving everything are useful.

My personal opinion would be that it would be better to compete with Zizzy, since he's a faggot. Rainbooru is pretty promising. On the other hand Rainbooru isn't built on a proven platform, so its continued existence depends on the competence of Raindev.

A good booru should archive absolutely everything, even patreon-only art and unauthorized edits. Why? For the sake of completionism.
However banning them means less images stored at once, and it will please those who believe in paywalling and "I have a private art folder I only allow my bestest friends to see, pay me and simp for me long enough and you might get to see it" bullshit.
What are butthurt artists going to do, sue you for uploading their art of Twilight Sparkle's asshole without their permission?

I'm gonna have to agree with banning the patreon-only art here. Cause not doing so just sounds like a good way to get artists and their simp's to militarize against you when it does get posted.
Edits though? Unless an artist specifically asks for edits to be disallowed (in the case that someone is trying to be a real dickwad to them with edits), allow them all.

I can confirm that is whole site is owned by Atlas and Lotus, who came up with the idea a while back, it has just been slow to implement because the code is not simple to learn overnight. All pictures once allowed on derpibooru are allowed here, including all politics, however, the site rules mention that it is all to be My Little Pony related. No furry exclusive images. The rules are simple by design to allow the maximum freedom, moderation will be to keep things pony related.
As far as content in it, we just opened it up. We are working to upload, but we need more hooves on deck.
>>274645
Staff are rules are in your favor here as opposed to Ponybooru, which has expressly allowed furry content on their site.
>>274649
I'm sorry for the error. We are working on the site, so if you experience anything else, please let us know so we can troubleshoot.
>>274638
All changes, as few as they will be, will be announce here and on the allowed forums there. There will be no unexpected changes without input save some planned aesthetic options such as theme changes we are planning on releasing. We will be planning additional features, though it is unclear what can be added until we learn the code as time goes on.
>>274655
Right now we don't have plans for DNPs, though the structure is there, built into the base code. We will have to discuss this thoroughly as it might cause artist to try to take down Aryanne images as they join the censorship bandwagon. We want to attract artists, but we don't want to sacrifice freedom to do it. So we will be brainstorming possible ways to entice artist engagement.

It's a balance between not scaring off artists, and archiving everything. Like I said Rainbooru for example goes squarely in the "archive EVERYTHING" pony direction, and I fully expect tons of artists to boycott it and be angry at it, and many more to just silently not support it.

I suppose banning paid-only art but allowing all edits could be a compromise, somewhere in between Ponybooru and Rainbooru. Interesting. Gonna bring up a suggestion that was mentioned for ponybooru: standardising on an "edited from:X" tag, to avoid edits cluttering the "artist:X" tag and make it 100% clear the edit isn't necessarily endorsed or intended by the artist.

>>274672
>All pictures once allowed on derpibooru are allowed here

I'm afraid that's mutually exclusive.

are all literally furry-exclusive images, with a vague MLP theme. "oc:tanja" is literally a furaffinity fox OC that wears a horse costume. Whisperfoot has anthro deer OCs, sometimes without any ponies in the image.
I don't advise "allowing every picture from derpibooru", unless you really want to be lose with what counts as furry.

>Ponybooru, which has expressly allowed furry content on their site.
Ponybooru doesn't allow more furry than Derpibooru does. In fact, if you stick to "everything on Derpibooru is allowed", then you're exactly as furry as Ponybooru. That's not to say this is guaranteed to remain that way forever, Zizzy may or may not be trusted (I am inclined to trust him but that's entirely my opinion), but right now the rules definitely don't allow actual furry artwork that's not related to ponies at all.
There's like one furry image that hasn't been deleted because he's "using it as an example of content that is not encouraged on the site", and encouraging people to downvote bomb it. Make of that what you will.

Yeah, the whole thing was a mistake in wording of trying to allow deer and cows, since they technically are not pony but many still consider them to be a part of the world.

Look into becoming a Postybirb-supported site. Since Postybirb just copies and pastes descriptions, tags, etc between all the sites, it would make things relatively painless for artists with them only needing to put another checkmark in.

That might be an obstacle, tbh. With other alt-boorus existing already, some politically-neutral artists might be hesitant to support a site that's directly affiliated with /mlpol/. Perhaps measures should be taken to calm their concerns.

I want to say i am genuinely surprised and impressed over this. I randomly browsed it today and noticed that Lotus was bulk-losing Aryanne art already.

Never thought this possible that this community would ever host its own art archive. This is a great asset to our community as well as a moral boosty and i hope that Ponerpics will prosper to the fullest extent possible.

Years ago i considered creating a board for Aryanne on 8chan just to archive the content. (in retrospect, what a grave mistake that would have been...) but this has vastly surpassed anything i could have ever accomplished. and it brings some other utility with it as well. This will in all likelyhood be the only pony image booru i will use for the foreseeable future. no offense to Rainbooru admin but I stick what I am close with.

Thank You Atlas, Pupper and Lotus. On behalf of every Artist who made Art for this community over for 7 years and even now. Im moved.

probably by looking their politics and behavior. Sjws can't help but virtue signal at least regularly. you could also talk to them before hand to get a feel for what kind of personality you are letting in. vetting mods just needs to be taken seriously and not some faceless application.

If they have somehow made it in you can then judge for their behavior like: dishonesty, selective justice, abuse of power, refusing transparency. most of it is normal rule braking, but again sjws are pretty easy to identify, but hard to let them go.

https://invidio.us/watch?v=lrhshJgHTec
I am really just repeating everything Vox Day wrote about how sjws infiltrate and then subvert otherwise healthy institutions and organizations. in his book corporate cancer and a little bit of sjws: always lie and sjws: always double down. I highly recommend you guys at least glance at the basic ideas of them.

Hey everyone, Atlas here.
I know it's been a while since I last chatted with you but I'm glad to see you seem to like the new site. I've been reading through your posts and I have a few things I want to clear up.
First, the point of ponerpics is to make people feel like they can post their poner pics. and that's it. we, despite having an ideology of our own, will not enforce it on the populous. just as anyone is welcome to post on mlpol with a good argument, anyone is welcome to post on ponerpics if they are not posting illegal stuff. no one will be banned for political affiliation, no one will be doxxed.
that being said Moderation is a serious concern for us, mlpol was founded on the idea of self moderation, meaning that it was easy to find and hire good ponis for modding, for ponerpics we will have to be more selective, the process will be arduous. even if hired onto staff you will have little power and must prove yourself over time to gain any privledges.
as with mlpol any staff member, including myself, found to be operating in a way which is for the good of the site, including enforcing his own political beliefs, or being influenced by outside sources, will be removed at once.

to be clear; ponerpics is a safe haven for free speech, and we will enforce that til death. If it isn't a crime, if it is MLP, it can be posted. It will not be a safe space for anyone. come and post if you want, but don't demand the staff take anything down cause it offends you. Communists can post, Nazis can post, etc. This is about free speech, not ideological enforcement. AND NO ONE WILL EVER TAKE OVER STAFF TO ENFORCE THEIR OWN IDEOLOGY.

correct me if im wrong; but i assume the current upload process is at least half automated.
in any case; in thiscearly stage i suggest uploading content that is threatened to be removed from competing sites.
i have seen discord leaks from the db server from a potential future site owner; where he said hes willing "to ban content to piss off 4chan". i think thats obvious but they are not even trying to hide it anymore.
things like mlpol and anonfilly art could be next on the chopping block. now we can do something about it.

It is not automated. Every image on ponerpics must be uploaded individually and manually, although the script included in the OP makes the process just about as simple as copypasting a link and clicking "upload." Just uploading the remaining 2000 images tagged "Aryanne" will take me at least 10 hours.

I haven't actually checked to see if the image posting API is working, but it's detailed on derpi at https://derpibooru.org/pages/api#posting-images

If it were working, you could have a script grab all images on a derpi tag and then upload them all using that API call after grabbing image tags and description from derpi. You could even avoid reposting shit by using the sha512_hash field of the image response to search for the image on ponerpics first.

Are you having to manually edit some of the tags before posting?

That's what the image posting API is for.
Assuming the image posting API was working, if you had a script that could scrape and upload an entire derpi tag, then list the ponerpic images that were uploaded so you could scrutinize tags, would that be better than the current process?

>>274812
No matter how "cucked" it might be, I'm ultimately in favor of Ponerpics having a Rule 3 like /mlpol/ does. Ponies allowed, no exceptions. The old way of "if you don't like it, use the filters" combined with the ability to hide individual images is the best way to handle this, just like how most everyone on the anti-censorship, pro-freedom side wants.

O'Sullivan's law applies when the leadership is indecisive. Here, the leadership is vehemently pro-free expression, which, incidentally, is somehow a right-wing principle nowadays. That's not changing.

Is 4/pol/ cucked because leftists aren't banned? I mean, you could argue that it's cucked by shills and astroturfers, but that's besides the point. Not censoring points of view does not imply that you're politically neutral and open to subversion.

I was thinking more in terms of moderation, goals, why it wouldn't die off, etc. Ponybooru died off. I'd really like another alternative to derpi to be popular but derpi is so big and I don't think being able to post nazi horses will be enough of a draw to support a competitor. Especially when its between you guys, rainbooru, and derpi. It's doubly unfortunate cause the moderation here is excellent and derpi but with this style moderation would be fantastic.

Is there an existing archive of metadata that can be used to restore Commie-DNP content or should we be running around trying to get copies of it right now? I ask because the value of the DNP'd art right now is in the tags, rather than the images themselves (which are archived in multiple locations to my knowledge).

An unrelated site policy suggestion: in response to a DNP or copyright takedown, I suggest that the page, comments, and tags be left up, and only the image and thumbnails being replaced with a generic "image removed due to artist's request" image and thumbnail. This will comply with existing legal requirements, as the artist has no legal right to demand a takedown of the associated tags or comments, without disrupting the archival quality of tags and comments, and keeping more data around that you don't legally have to throw away can only be a good thing.

No. Content is simply being uploaded faster than thumbnails can be generated, which is just what happens when you try to upload 1600 images an hour. Type in a tag, and you will see that the vast majority of content on the site has already generated thumbnails. The images in the first few pages are the most recently uploaded, and they will generate thumbnails soon.

>>274924
Somewhere, likely. However, if it is on derpibooru it can be mass uploaded now.

>>274925
This is not a bad idea, if images must be taken down for DNP. However, as I have access to legal researching tools, I think I will want to formulate my own opinion on the requirements of the DMCA before adopting a firm policy.

Derpi's database dumps, pre-takedown, definitely contain all that. I grabbed a 28 June dump, which was before most of the anti-nazi takedowns came in. I am also certain there are tons of people who have older dumps, and/or might have even been scraping the website.
Plus I don't know what's left in the database after takedown - the tags could still be there even then. Might be worth checking.

If you want to work on importing before they're gone from Derpi, I've attached a list of URLs to art by DNPd artists. As far I can tell the majority is still up at the moment due to the backlog of DNPs. This list was generated from a list of artists someone posted in the /mlp/ Derpi alternative thread. There are around 32k URLs inside.

Derpibooru puts tags like "OP is a duck" and "drama bait" on art the leftists don't like. They don't enforce their rules against tag vandalization (calling someone a fag in the tags) against lefties so there are probably some spicy memes with those tags.

Atlas; with all due respects, you might want to hold off on implementing this update until its clear this does not include sabotage to give faggots like byte a hidden backdoor key or includes general intentional performance decreases. Especially if this was uploaded after the lügenpresse articles. Remember who you are dealing with here. These kikes try to keep a quasi-monopoly together.

We are looking into a means of uploading that bypasses thumbnail generation.

>>275301
Ponerpics has two methods for handling duplicates: a reverse search feature to check for a duplicate before you upload, and an automatic rejection of duplicate images after you've checked upload. We think that we've found a way to get a sufficient image inventory, but it's entirely possible that you have many images that were never on Derpibooru or otherwise missing.

PonerPics will be making some modifications to our servers and databases. PonerPics will go offline briefly today, and will be moved to a server with lower speed for what we estimate to be three or four days, after which we will move back to the operating server.

We ask that those doing mass, automated uploads of art from Derpibooru to PonerPics to stop now. It is no longer necessary, and may create problems when the databases are merged at the end of this period.

Revised:

We are on the same server as before. You can upload to your heart's content. We are attempting to bypass the uploading process altogether by downloading the Derpibooru database, and if that succeeds then new uploads may be duplicates or erased altogether. Please keep uploading pictures that are not on Derpibooru, and mark them with special tags like "not on Derpibooru" so we can transfer them if we succeed.

PonerPics still does not have a firm DNP policy. Right now, only a single artist has even asked (Badumsquish, who wants all of his feedback on his art on a single site. He's been pretty polite).

We would like feedback on this issue, as it's turning out to be more controversial than I thought it would be.

Possible options include:
Honoring all DNPs
Honoring all DNPs that aren't virtue signalled on twitter before hand
Honoring DNPs based upon content, with DNPs not honored for Aryanne
DMCA notice only

And so forth, with any amount of nuance, like making take down requests harder.

The way I see it:

>honour DNPs that aren't virtue signalled
This will lead to poor enforcement and drama. Some cases are definitely clear-cut, but there will always be edge cases that will leave everyone angry. What if Dilarus submits a DNP despite never tweeting about ponerpics? He made a big stink about DNPing Ponybooru, and of course he's been virtue signalling nonstop about the Derpi situation; will that count or not? Now what if an artist is reasonable but uses Twitter as their main platform and, when they decide to DNP, just post a PSA to all their followers to inform them. Will you be able to judge that it's not "virtue signalling"?
>honouring DNPs based on content
That seems like a great way to scare people off drawing Aryanne. If someone is fine with not DNPing the policy won't be useful. If someone thinks they might like to DNP, then they're basically gonna either stew in indignation, or avoid drawing Aryanne outright, to avoid the risk of a potential DNP not being fully honoured. And people who have hardline ideological stances might get angry, even if they never intended to DNP.

So the choice seems to me to really be between accomodating artists, and being an archive. My personal advice would be to go a similar route to Ponybooru: honour DNPs, attract artists. But keep up the metadata of images taken down, and if possible let people make posts for DNPed artists that simply link back to the original source. (And ideally you could store the art on your servers for backup and archival, "just in case", but without displaying it on the website.)

I'm saying this because Ponybooru has flip-flopped a few times. They seem to be on the right track now, but Zizzy is Zizzy and who knows whether he'll just fuck up again one day. An alternative would be good. Meanwhile, we've got Rainbooru for archiving, and additionally Twifag has said that Twibooru will go up soon and will ALSO be focused on archiving. And mind you, neither Rainbooru nor Twibooru will honour DMCA notices, so if you want to be another archival-focused booru, "DMCA takedown only" already makes you strictly inferior to them, so you'd need to start by moving hosting to a copyright-lax country. I think it's best to have two of each, than three archive boorus and only one that caters to artists.

A distinction could be drawn around the type of content and where it lies in the censorship crosshairs. An artist requesting a takedown of an Aryanne pic for example would get a haha archive go wrrrrrrr. Much of Anonfilly content falls in that category as well.

At the start of the "Furry Fandom" it really was just about liking cartoons with talking animals and anthro animals. The porn takeover happened over time, and it became seen as cringey to be a furry. So people saying "I'm a furry but I don't want to fuck Simba and Nala I just like their movie a lot" became less common. Normal people didn't want to be associated with an increasingly porn-obsessed leftist-injected insular circlejerk of an incestuous non-fandom.
Furry is a nonsense word so liking a cartoon about dogs, a cartoon about anthropomorphic dog-men, wanting to fuck the dog-men and dogs, wanting to fuck real animals, wanting to wear the gay fursuits and thinking you are a reincarnated dog or dog on the inside, it's all something that makes you a furry.
If the furry fandom agreed that liking air conditioning makes you a furry, and we also agreed so, it would be so.
However fuck the person in that pic anyway.
According to our modern definition, a furry is someone who wants to bone Sonic the Hedgehog. And we shouldn't give a shit how the furry fandom defines "their" term since it isn't their term any more. They've lost control over their group and how it's seen.

I feel this should be a topic of its own, as an interesting lens on how the "Fandom" tries to interject itself into everything. It remindes me of the LGBTQALPHEBETSOUP fandom. And yes, I did just call that a fandom.

The left, progressives, fuck it we all know there is no distinction of left and communism so that is what the fuck they are. They love fish net words, words so broad that they then call it a "Spectrum" (Which is an internet provider) What I mean by fishnet? Is that they try to increase their own numbers by redefining words so broad that they include everyone. This is no different that of communism and "EVERY ONE IS EQUAL" motif they spew around. And no matter what, because they ARE communists, they ARE political. So no matter which fandom they are apart of, somehow they interject themselves into that as well so they can then group the fandoms into one big clump.

Like BLM and LGBT blending together which really are two separate issues being painted in graphitty together, and then them trying and failing to do the same with Furry and MLP.

It is also amusing how they try to lump everything together but at the same time try to divide everyone that they just don't like or wants to be forced to accept their "inclusion", then they try to separate them out and have the "mob" either make them submit or they get rid of them, (like murder, reeducation, doxing, etc.)

I digress. I do find this a topic for another thread.

You're right.
Rich people can't become poor people without losing or giving up their money. But they can easily claim to be an "Oppwessed Minowity" like gay or bi, mudslime, tranny, nonbinary, etc.
A rich black niggeress can get starving poor people on her side with a yell of "I'd be even richer if it wasn't for those fucking white males and their invisible racism!"

Better yet, the Racism tag could be divided into who the racism is against.
"Racism against whites",
"Racism against blacks",
"Racism against Ponies",
There is no such thing as Racism against Jews because they're not human,
"Racism against Zebras" for pics where Zebras aren't used as a metaphor for blacks and specifically mocked for shit only Ziggers do like rhyming and making potions,
"Racism against all of humanity" for the misanthropic "ponies am superior humanity am inferior" trash seen in Conversion Bureau,

Would be nice to import the scores and stuff from Derpi. Would also be nice if votes from Derpi could be separated from votes on ponerpics. By that I mean a way to "turn off" Derpi votes. Not sure on the feasibility of it, but that would seem like a good solution.

That's why I suggested having the ability to remove the Derpi votes. While they may be tainted, having votes at all helps to sort through things. Once there's a sizable number of PonerPics votes, could remove or possibly even treat it like a filter where the user can chose to include them or not.

The fuck? Why would you want the retardation that is Derpi's comments? I get that sometimes they're useful and/or interesting, but a huge amount of comments are either useless (like a couple of people saying "nice" or "cute" - which is good feedback for the artist uploading their image, but have no purpose long-term) or just outright garbage, such as cringy quasi-RPers or "I wish that were me" or "omg so sexy" pajeet fantasies. You'd also be importing all of TUA's comments, for example - think about that.

The problem is, the decision should be left to the individual user. Your position is agreeable on a personal level, but as a policy it gets trickier. Now whether moving over all the comments presents a labor burden on the site and therefore would be rightly omitted for time and resources, that's a different issue. But ommission 'because people said stupid' shit is a bad policy

That's fair. They should definitely be separate, though, in that case, rather than imported directly as normal comments - maybe like an "archived comments" section, where you can read them, but it's under a different tab/hidden by default (potentially user-configurable).
Among other things, it would make zero sense to have comments from a different website be displayed as part of the same "discussion" as on-site comments, when there's a very good chance most people who wrote the original comments will probably never ever see this new conversation or reply there.

My argument against importing comments/votes is mainly just why? It just feels like completely copying derpibooru for no reason. To an extent, ponerpics has to be its own site, and not just a literal derpi clone with different rules. Sure, it make make sorting images by votes and such harder, but I think it'd be better this way.
Plus seriously, who actually reads derpi comments?

It does appear that uploads have overtaken thumbnail generation by a considerable margin. The hiding feature that twibooru uses does not work on our website. We will look further into it. At worst, this is a problem that can only persist until we switch to the new server in around two weeks, where all of the images will already be uploaded and have thumbnails. But we will look into solving this problem

Yes, we know. At the very least clicking on “trending images” should result in mostly images that are not awaiting thumbnail generation, as will going towards pages much further on the catalog. Hopefully we can make it so that images not yet processed can be hidden. When we switch servers there will be no more delayed thumbnail generation as every image will already have thumbnails.

The legacy feature should allow you to sort by legacy score, legacy upvotes/downvotes, and legacy score, as well as search by those numbers. (We may change the name in the search bar to "derpi score" to make it more intuitive). We already have it working.

No, that's right. A very large number of images were uploaded by a user. The user has since slowed down, but I estimate that the thumbnail generation is around 100k images behind, and will catch up in perhaps ~4 days or less. We've looked at ways to hide images that have not generated thumbnails, but have not yet succeeded.

For what it's worth, our second server is up to 740,000 thumbnails generated, with around 11 days until the full 2.1 million + are generated, and the legacy favorites/votes system works.

The tags in the import have the tags that they had at the time they were scraped. This would be starting at about 2017. The tags, while already labeled as belonging to "characters" and so forth, don't come with aliases. We will likely have to separately download aliases from derpibooru, and I do not yet know how changes in tags over time between the older images and the current tag set will be handled. So if all of these tags are currently aliases on derpibooru, that's likely what they are going to be on ponerpics. If you want to make new, silly tags, go ahead. Just make sure they don't impede the functionality of tags and searching.

10 days... I imagined that the completion would arrive at August 15 or 16 (at the end of the week)
Well, no need to rush it but keep in mind that Derpibooru is announcing a possible deletion in bulk and I don't know when it will happen.

I am saying this because your site could fill that spot as soon as it happens for the incoming drama and only Ponybooru fills the community department so far. It would be appreciated and wise to stay there,latent, fully on guard and prepared for those moments of the possible disenchantment that could arise from the users. It seems redundant to say this but I've got to remind you that Rainbooru lost all its market space because it didn't fill the role properly and thus, Ponybooru gained that amount of success.

Again, I am not asking for any rushed process in the technical department but being prepared at the right time could determine which alternative does its best at taking advantage of those convulsed moments.

Anyway, thanks for the answer. Let's hope that this construction phase ends up nicely.

We've been averaging about 120,000 thumbnails a day, which with 1.1 million images already having thumbnails, that leaves around about 9 days. The actual import - the copying of the files - can take much less time and if anything is proceeding more slowly because the thumbnail bottleneck provides little incentive to make it faster. It's also difficult to find servers with enough storage space to provide for not only the 2.6 Terrabytes of images and data in the database, but also the additional ~2 Terrabytes of thumbnails, and have some cushion for the event of a possible hard drive failure, and that are available for relatively cheap. If there were a certain server available for purchase that was available three weeks ago, I would have purchased another server so as to split the thumbnail generation between the two of them and halve the time. Hopefully most or all of the deleted images are in the archives, but we can do our scraping of Derpibooru for any images missing from the archives sooner.

I should mention the reason why we don't want to switch servers until most or all of the thumbnails are generated: we are using a bypass for thumbnail generation that is dangerous to use on a live website. Absent that bypass, maybe 25,000 to 35,000 thumbnails can be generated in a day.

It will be able to host thumbnail processing, allowing thumbnails to process on both servers and be combined in the end. This should speed up the import. In the future I think we may also be able to import data there, have it process, and then be sent to the live server.

Mostly we just needed more storage space, so we bought another one to replace the smaller of our two back up servers. What makes this server different from the backup servers is that it actually has enough RAM to run philomena. So it can also be used as a test server in the future.

Tags and Legacy Search.png
The server transfer is complete.

Ponerpics has completed it’s import of the archive – over 2150000 images, including 68,000 marked as deleted from derpibooru. However, this import only includes those images that were in the archive, and has a few gaps, like all of the images uploaded to derpibooru after July 8, 2020. We plan on filling all of those gaps with more imports in the near future, so the importation isn’t done. We also want to transfer a few key images from our old ponerpics server, but haven’t been able to yet. Maybe we can add those in the next few days, but maybe they will need to be uploaded again.

All of the imported images are tagged as “imported from derpibooru” and those deleted are marked as “deleted from derpibooru.” Images have their original image number from derpibooru, which means that links in the description work. They also have their original creation date and are sortable by that number. Ponerpics displays the derpibooru favorites, upvotes, downvotes, and score in parenthesis next to where these values normally appear. You can sort images by these values, and search with “derpi_upvotes” etc, and the same with combined scores. Tags have the same descriptions, images, and aliases as on derpibooru.

Not every piece of information was copied from the live ponerpics website because of limitations in testing ability and time. User avatars, moderation reports (including link and dnp requests), commissions, galleries, and private messages will have to be remade and reuploaded, as will all favorites, votes, and comments. Users who joined in the last few hours, after the information was transferred, will need to remake their accounts. Because of a discrepancy in how tags are numbered in the database, custom user filters will need to be remade.

You can still visit the current server at old.ponerpics.org until about August 30.

The import comes with some changes and updates, like a fix to file upload problems, and email password reset. We are missing a number of changes we would have liked to make, like new themes, fixing problems with the current default theme, mp4 support, and links to the derpibooru images below the source. We are hoping those can be added in the next few weeks.

Please tell us if there are any issues or if you have any requests for things you want us to try to transfer from the old server. We know there is an issue with svg uploads, and there are 6200 images that refuse to generate thumbnails. We hope to fix these issues quickly. The import set also includes many non-pony related and spam images that will need to be deleted. Please report these.

If you notice images that need to be deleted, or have requests for transfers, or concerns, please comment in the forums https://ponerpics.org/forums/meta/topics/the-great-derpibooru-database-transfer?post_id=159#post_

Thank you for an incredible job. I should have had more faith.
I'm sorry for being a faggot. How can I make amends for everyone?

There are a few images like that. Most likely, these are images where the metadata downloaded to the archive, but the image did not, so the page is missing the actual image. We intend to retrieve the missing images from Derpibooru

it would seem to me like twibooru managed to import it well(based purely on what the tags are, not the pic number)

It looks like it's a PNG image that the database lists as a JPEG. Thus, the site generates PNG thumbnails, but tries to pull JPEG thumbnails

That specific image has been fixed now, as a part of larger fixes of missing thumbnails

PonerPics is transferring hosts to a waiting server. I anticipate the site will be down for a little under four days.

I had an advertisement campaign accepted by 4chan, but I had to pause it when this happened. We'll start it when we are back up.

I’ve decided to re-open the website somewhat early. Many images are still waiting for their thumbnails to be transferred, while all other data and the images themselves have already been transferred. It will probably take a few days to finish the transfer of every thumbnail.

Reminder that you should avoid Derpibooru, or any altbooru. Text entered on the search fields, tags, or anything remains on the backend server (database) and are accessible by the admins. Even offline it's linked to your IP in the logs. (Query)

Frenly reminder that Ponerpics.org is a sister-site to /mlpol/, created and developed by Pupper, Lotus, and Atlas, with the same considerations for user infosec and freedom that led to /mlpol/'s development.
Your info is as safe there as it is here, which is as safe as can feasibly be.
