As the OP says, this is a collection of rules, guides, and otherwise interesting information concerning e621 and the usage of it.

If you have any guides or topics to add please post them in here and I will include them in the OP.

If you have any questions regarding anything on e6, that are too small for their own thread, then please ask them here and we will answer!

Well, that sure gets rid of like 75% of the sticky clutter on the first page. Nice.


Is there an article regarding approver discretion? I imagine it would help avoid some of the users posting threads about it.

It's the uploading guidelines.

I meant mod-to-mod basis. One mod might approve, while another deletes. Especially if it's a set of images from the same location, all uploaded in a short span, if most of them get approved by one person, but a couple get deleted by another?

I don't follow. Those are the guidelines, if you feel we have made an error following those then please bring it up with us. There is nothing else to it.

Might be interesting to add forum #77987: Performance thread


I'd rather have all that in the feedback thread, it doesn't make sense to have a feedback thread and then specifically another for feedback on the site's performance.

I dunno, I would think it might be interesting to keep since they usually seem to be completely unrelated. Otherwise we might as well lock the performance thread and redirect people to the general feedback thread instead.

Got any questions that are left unanswered?

If you have any questions regarding anything on e6, that are too small for their own thread, then please ask them here and we will answer!

I doubt if this collection of forums is really the place for user questions. We could just start a new forum titled something like Drop your questions about e621 here! and add the forum link to this list (or sticky it) or allow users to ask questions on the thread with the guide forum I'm busy working on.


Is there a way to end the hyperlink DText other than a space? I want to be able to stick a colon at the end and have the colon be plaintext, not a link or part of the URL, but it gets engulfed and becomes the URL instead of the visible text.


Could we have a link to:

forum #181201 - New tags discussion (Jan. 2016) ?

probably under 'user driven topics'


I have a question regarding items acceptable to upload - basically, I'd like some clarification/expansion to be sure I understand it properly. Whom should I message? Thanks.


I wonder if there is a way to implement tags for personal use in sets pages as I see there a trending tag section built in.


if my works keeps geting deleted randomly and no one of the admins or staff answers my PM, can i ask here why??????????? or is there a tread for that that i dont know????????????

Question: Since we currently haven't a formal way to suggest aliases/implications canceling, or suggest an alias for two tags already involved in an implication (and vice-versa), what about to put in this thread the links for those informal suggestions? This way, they don't end up completely lost.

I'd say make a new stickied thread for that, possibly separating between the or.


Please add e621:tools to the OP.

So I get that we have a wiki page for uploading guidelines, but to be fair some guidelines (Quality standards in particular) are subjective to a degree. Would it be ok to have a stickied thread made specifically for feedback on individual pieces or galleries?

I feel like this would help new users and artists determine if what they want to upload is acceptable in a more clear and responsive way than what is provided on the guidelines page.

I'm hoping that a thread like this will also reduce the amount of 'why was my stuff deleted?' threads as well since someone could be directed there and get feedback from mods and peers alike.

Say you want art for a story, and you ask by creating a forum topic, or perhaps creating a forum topic to help inspire people for art or comics, is that allowed?

No, not really.

I see. Thank you for the information.


Something occurred to me. Every so often, in the forums we get a thread suggesting a feature request that has already been denied for one reason or another. Rather than let these duplicate threads keep popping up, would it be possible to make a seperate thread listing proposed features that have been denied with a general reason why the request was turned down and then link that thread here (possibly under "the technical side of e621")? I can't think of any examples atm, but it might help reduce the clutter in the forums in the future.

Admins would have to add things themselves; people should really just be using the search feature and looking for it.


The sites and sources page should be added to the list, probably next to the 'Saving images properly' PSA.
