Posts Taking Quite a While to be Approved

In category: General

I know I'm probably like the four hundred and eleventy-twelfth person to make a post about this, but I don't legitimately know which staff to contact specifically, and I don't think it's awfully appropriate to post this on the Post Approval thread, because the last comment was 4 years ago.

As the name suggests, all but one of my uploads have been taking a long time to be approved, and sure, that wouldn't be a big deal if it were one or two like many other people have made topics about, but this is 9 images we're talking about, and they've been sitting around for up to 5 days, and I'm unable to post anything else, so...

Here are the posts of mention

Thank you.


Shortstaffed and lots of uploads. It takes time, dont worry, just have patience.


Don't worry about it, it's normal. I've had images take upwards of two weeks to be approved of or deleted. They'll get to it, don't you worry.


Yeah, I know it takes time and everything; the only reason I said anything was because
1. The total was on the higher side and is affecting my ability to post and
2. One of them actually WAS approved in a timely manner, and it was in the middle of all my uploads, so I figure justifiably, they would've gone through all before it, or gone through all after it. (either of which would've prevented this)


AFAIK approvals are done in random order instead of chronologically from the back (which is just plain silly, but I digress) so they sometimes take a while.


Admins may look at certain themes more than others, or at thumbnails that look easier to estimate.

A humanoid picture like Inuyasha is blurrier territory that they may skip over for the time being, while a lot of the other images look fairly crowded. post #1191117, while somewhat crowded, is a pretty safe guess that it's just a group based on the names hovering around the Pokemon, and Pokemon is a popular tag. Having a few anthros mixed in helps as well. post #1191119 on the other hand, while a solo image, is also a feral one. Less popular than anthro.


We review stuff when we get to it. Asking for posts to be reviewed will not make it get processed any faster.
Keep in mind, we janitors are un-payed slave workers(volunteers) for e621/dragon fruit, therefore we work on our own time when we have time.

Dragon fruit?

Dragonfruit Ventures, LLC is the parent company of Bad Dragon, e621, Furry network, f-list, and some secret stuff(maybe, not Szechuan Sauce tho, unfortunately) that I cannot mention here, mostly because I don't know. :v
They also do the ads.

Huh, Didn't know this company I just herd about today had their fingers in so many pies lolz ╹‿╹) But just what are they?
Sorry for going off into a bit of a tangent but the more I think about it, The more questions I have about just what this company does to stay afloat and why so many furry based places are partnered with it.

They aren't partnered with furry places - they own furry places. Furry businesses ARE what they do to stay afloat. At least, to my understanding.

I think dildos are what they do to stay afloat. Bad Dragon is essentially the ultimate not-Japan dildo company. They might just be ultimate period.

Economically it is called conglomerate (an economic strategy based on the ownership of multiple companies within a specific sector, having the intention of dominate market; this isn't illegal, but sometimes is a questionable behavior).

Well, how many competing companies are there or have there been? It's a very "questionable" sector to begin with. I think galleries is the biggest field, with sites like Weasyl, Furaffinity, and Inkbunny.

That would be a monopoly of furry stuff

High-quality posts get approved quickly. The rest often need a second (or third) opinion, and end up sitting in the queue for a long time because of that. There's nothing silly about that. It's for the sake of maintaining the quality standards.

An oligopoly actually.

Edit: Now I am not sure if you are talking about economy or board games.

Nah. I need to focus on all the projects that I've been neglecting. Don't have time to spend hours each day shifting through the queue and answering angry mails about why someone's colonoscopy photo got deleted.


fair enough

But InuYasha IS allowed according to the rules, primarily because of 1 thing; his dog ears. There shouldn't need to be any kind of deliberation. Also, mario_bros, sonic_(series), and super_smash_bros are all pretty popular tags, too. I don't honestly see what being anthro has to do with it. Just because "feral" is less popular doesn't mean it breaks the rules.

Geez, I know I'm not a professional, but I thought my art was fairly indisputably above MINIMUM quality standards... Apparently not...

They aren't saying that Inuyasha isn't allowed, but that it is more difficult to tell at a glance whether an image of the sort like with Inuyasha ought to be approved or not.

In other words, it's more difficult to distinguish a humanoid as site-relevant from a thumbnail or whatever, whereas images with anthros and ferals are more obviously relevant even just looking at a brief glance. So they'll get approved faster.


Working as intended
I believe I had a few posts possibly take a month to approve, iirc


Popularity does have bearing, because janitors, moderators, and admins still are people looking at things.

I didn't SAY it didn't have bearing. I said that it really shouldn't.


Duck_Hunt_Dog said:

It really should.

The only way to make it so that popularity doesn't have a bearing would be to forbid janitors and whatnot from approving images they happen across on their own time, and to force them to work from the "back of the line".

That would make the process less efficient, and in general posts would take even longer to approve than they do now.

By analogy, that would be like forbidding users from correcting the tags on posts that they happen across when searching for something they are interested in, and demand that they must exclusively work on tagging projects if they want to tag images.

Actually looking through your record the majority of your deleted posts were for irrelevancy.


FoxFourOhFour said:

Those are from trying to upload human-only art, simply because I didn't know it wasn't allowed at that point, but that isn't the point. None of MY art has been deleted for not meeting the minimum quality standards, so if something like my old art is of high enough quality, then my new art does indisputably. It isn't anything that breaks the rules, so I don't understand why they require all these second and third opinions.
