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.

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.

How much time do you need for the whole import, Lotus? Just to have a reference for the complete setup. I am asking this because Ponybooru is already completing the gallery and Twibooru seems to be solving its thumbnails problem.

At the current rate, it will take 10 more days for 2.2 Million thumbnails in total to be generated, with the copying of files taking less time than that.

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.

Admittedly, image number 4 there is probably just a duplicate as there is a counterpart on Derpibooru. To compensate, here is another one among the tens of thousands that actually have been deleted.

I expect the import to be done this friday

Should the original uploader name and a link to the Derpibooru image be included in the description field in new imports? Also, if so, should it be above or below the original description?

I think it would be alright to include the uploader name somewhere. I don't think it's necessary to link to Derpi as the ID's will be the same.

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_

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

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.

It's sad that ponerpics is deserted. It would've been nice for people to regroup into a small community that likes occasional chit chats, events, celebrations. But instead it's just an archive for a sole purpose of archiving stuff.

here is an idea, being able to link a ponerpic pic here and it showing up instead of uploading said pic, you get what im saying?
i think this would both diminish the amount of times pics have to be uploaded on mlpol while also giving access to the quite extensive(although taking a look myself there seems to be a few pics missing compared to other depiforks, for example just looking at the size of the loli tag) horse pussy trove to keep shills at bay
and it could also make it so that the people here start being more active at ponerpics, for example uploading sum anonfilly pic to ponerpics an then posting it here, or something.

It seems that Derpi drama thread have slid down.
So I'll ask here. Sorry if this is off topic.
Some Anon on 4chan suggests that Derpi's policies and tools they use to trace users aren't GDPR compliant.
>https://boards.4channel.org/mlp/thread/36373831#p36421378
AFAIK Derpibooru servers located in EU.
Can someone, realistically, report them to some agency that's obligated to investigate GDPR violations?
