Yep it's bullshit and actually incentivizes people to not post new art. I don't know why you're acting smug for pushing away users. There's a lot of art out there that don't get posted in e621. Even if it isn't the "best version", you ought to not get punished for posting it here and making it known. Otherwise, people won't bother posting it because it will just get deleted anyways. If it weren't there to begin with, your janitors wouldn't post your upscaled versions in the first place. Anyways fuck you

upscaling is not allowed either.

To respond to this, perhaps I shouldn't overrely on Tumblr or Twitter as the source when uploading my own works, because they'll compress it to a smaller resolution, and I will get annoyed late when someone uploads the raw version and deletes my own upload, which would diminish my upload limit.

I think uploading my own artworks straight from the computer is the best bet even if the internet is really slow and the filesize is really big.

Also, on Derpibooru, when there's a duplicate or a better version, they kinda merge it instead of deleting it.


Bruddas we need to not lower upload limit because of higher Rez versions


No, this function is a valuable tool and teaches an important life lesson.

actually tumblr DOES save original versions. the issue here seems to be that you dont know how to download the original version while others do, so other people will replace your uploads with the original versions from your tumblr.
so heres step by step guide how to obtain highest resolution from tumblr:

step 1: get the direct image link (right click → copy direct image link).
for example:
https://78.media.tumblr.com/cfe37a22fb46657e2d7c92a708a25611/tumblr_p74vkuNeI81r6790wo1_1280.png

step 2: replace 78.media with a and replace the number in the end with raw
for example:
https://78.media.tumblr.com/cfe37a22fb46657e2d7c92a708a25611/tumblr_p74vkuNeI81r6790wo1_1280.png

https://a.tumblr.com/cfe37a22fb46657e2d7c92a708a25611/tumblr_p74vkuNeI81r6790wo1_raw.png

congrats, now you have high res version of the thing.

I already know how. I also use a UserScript for that (though that varies depending on how fast my internet is). What I meant to say is that, while cumbersome, it's also an option for the artist to upload their original high res artworks straight from their computer.

It really would be preferable for artists (like you~) to upload from their own source files. :)

What makes it cumbersome for you? Maybe it's something that could be made easier?

The cumbersomness depends to me if the file is big and the internet connection is slow.

What I meant to say is that, while cumbersome...

And I might have said the wrong word. "...while it takes a little bit of effort..." would have been a better choice of words.


Yeah, I don't like that people get hit for uploading something and then having it replaced later. Frankly I don't like the way this website replaces images in the first place, I'd much rather it just update a post instead of having to go through the whole song and dance of uploading a better version, tagging that version or ripping tags from the old version.. or both.. and then all the comments get deleted, all the upvotes and downvotes.

I mean the system really does rather defeat the whole purpose of upvotes and downvotes as well as comments. Something gets uploaded, gets tons of upvotes and comments, and then a couple years later a better version is released and uploaded and suddenly all those upvotes and comments might as well have never even happened.

It'd just be so much better and so much easier if they just updated the post with the better version, no deletions, no punishing users for not waiting years to get *the* best version that the artist eventually decides to grace us with. Maybe transfer the upload count to the updater but stop adding it to the deleted amount.

Just my 2c, anyway.

This is where it gets to technical level where there needs to be code implemented and rewritten, rather than just change in rules and guidelines. Sites main goal is still to archive furry artwork rather than social features and there has been attempt to make things easier by allowing users to even read comments on deleted posts directly.

Being able to simply edit the file in submission would be insanely much easier for the staff to handle as well, but as things are right now, the submission if tied to files hash and editing file changes the hash.

So if you can hire more coders to the site to do all of these things, even better if they can build things from ground up so we don't have to deal with all of the inconviniences of current software, then sure.

But even after all that talk, in the end it would benefit everyone if everyone did do things correctly from the get go. There has been users who have just lazily been uploading compressed or sample versions of everything and they didn't stop even after several contact attempts, so if there was system where files could simply be replaced, these users wouldn't have anything to worry about as everyone else would then fix after them.

Because in the end, in majority of cases the best available versions are already there and with taking two seconds of thinking instead of just hurrying to upload form helps. Excluding the huge Tumblr situation from year ago, there's really rarely situations where posts from proper sites (read: not furaffinity) are getting replaced.


I'm not going to say anything about deleting inferior posts since its a great feature to have. though kind of wish the rescaling system was updated to allow a certain pixel size to be the default. that way no can complain it too big or too small.

however I want to point out a certain trend I tend to see when it come to these type of subjects

e621:
we are a art buroo that allow people to view free furry posts. however even though beggers can't be chooser,don't actively email the artist to see if there okay with there stuffs being here, and depend entirely on volunteers, we ask you to dig around the internet to find the best version otherwise we will punish you and say what a terrible job your doing in a snarky manner. but if you play your cards right for 10 years ,follow our vague and impossible critera of being a good user,we may upgrade you to priviliged. that is if we feel you deserve it

not to mention dicouraging new artists that have to start somewhere. e621 is a brand website, so of course they would try posting here first. then to be told your a bad artist is kind of discouraging. I even had a artist emailing this two paragraph message thanking me for just liking his art

what I'm getting at is no one want to give out help where there under apppreciated and this site almost entirely depend on others. perhap there should be safety nets for rookies like 30 day time outs until being restored for first offense bad uploading when the person upload limit reached zero.

Yeah, that's been a years-long issue, as well. The whole "we need coders" thing is like a bad joke that just keeps getting resaid. Yet at this point it's been a problem so long that I really don't feel it's a valid excuse any longer. If the owners of the website really wanted to upgrade the site in previously mentioned ways it would have been done by now or, at the very least, been in the works long enough to report on some good progress.

And that's the thing, isn't it? People want to help, they want to do something for a site that hell.. at this point is more than just a porn site, it makes them feel at home. Yet in many cases all they can do is attempt to upload quicker than the mega-uploaders do. That requires cutting corners because unlike the mega-uploaders they aren't super human or don't have bots or scripts to help them out.

SO, yeah. I'm perfectly fine with people not getting pegged for that sorta thing, if we had the replacement-update feature it'd be great, frankly. It'd essentially be like a real life gallery reserving a spot for a piece of work with a placard and a printed out image of the work and then hanging it up later once they had the actual thing.

This mentality of "these people need punished!" only works because we don't have that feature so while we don't it's fine, it works, yet it'd be nice to some day not need to waste administrative time on punishing that sort of thing. It'd be nice if it could just be updated to a better quality image and forgotten about. It'd be nice if, once updated, the updater got the upload point transferred to them or something so that the person that uploaded the inferior version wouldn't be punished per se yet also wouldn't be rewarded.

Yet that's just a bit of dreaming. A bit of "it WOULD be nice." I don't much expect it, though yet that doesn't mean I like the fact that people are punished for it any more however I understand the need for it with the current system.

I've only been here for 2 months, flagging an re-uploading posts...


The thing is... (fake statistics ahead) ... 99% of replacement uploads are from people who are doing it wrongly, not people who are getting tagged--years later-- by a better version suddenly becoming available. It's really easy to do it wrong, because places like tumblr do not make it easy for people to get to the largest version available, but once you learn HOW to get the highest version, it's *really easy* because it's just changing part of the URL. (I have an addon that makes getting the right URL painfully simple, but that's not for everyone)

The formula for uploading's pretty simple: For every 10 upload, you get +1 upload limit. For every 4 deletions, you get -1 upload limit.

So, you'd need to have basically half of everything you ever upload deleted in order to run out of upload.

and in the event that you are YiffArtist2001's biggest fan and exclusively upload everything they upload... then 1 year later, at christmas they decide to release higher quality versions of everything they've made before, and suddenly, your upload tanks because someone uploaded everything before you got to it... I am pretty sure that the staff would say, if messaged politely "yeah, that's not your fault" and help you out.

The penalty is meant to discourage bad behavior. If someone is being penalized for things beyond their control (ie, "I've been uploading as they release art, but they released as hi res pack last week! and I cna't upload any more") then the staff will fix it.

As for ""we need coders" thing.. There is MILES of difference between "I am learning how to code and am making a utility" and "I am ready willing and able to work on a REALLY big, live, active website" ... I don't think you understand how old or how big e621 is. e6 has been around for a LONG time. It was based on danbooru. Even 6 years ago, it was considered to be a *heavily modified* fork of it. It was SO heavily modified that, at least at the time, the coder renamed the code to be something else. The features added list is huge. e621 is a unique monster and the source code isn't available. I'm sure they're working on things, but I don't think you realize that the dude quietly making an tool to help with uploading is NOT the same as a person capable of modifying the website.

That doesn't take from the fact that if the owners wanted to change the site in a given way they would have done so by now. There are literally whole websites dedicated to people that do this sorta stuff bidding on jobs. There are whole firms that would be happy to work with them. They could have learned all there is to know about coding this website in the amount of time they've not changed it. If the owners wanted to change it they'd have done so.

It's very clear they don't. Why? I mean people've wanted to be able to update instead of having to re-post posts for ages now. But if we did that we couldn't arbitrarily punish people for a ridiculous reason any longer.

As for the promotions and stuff? I dunno. Seems like you've gotta put in an unhealthy amount of effort to get a promotion or have some sort of bot/script to help you or both. Like only a tiny number of people actually gettin' paid to be here, most of what makes this place as great as it is is volunteers that essentially put in enough effort and time to make this a full-time job that not only doesn't pay but actively expects more from them the more they do.

Still, like, the whole reason the punishment system makes any sense currently is because posts have to be deleted instead of updated. Updating would just be better all around. It wouldn't defeat/circumvent the vote system or comment system, it'd make tagging less of a hassle because you wouldn't have to rip tags or type them in yourself. It'd just be both immensely more convenient and user friendly and instead of punishing people we could just transfer the upload credit to the person that uploads the updated version.

That way only things that actually deserve to get deleted such as bad quality stuff and DNP stuff are the things that get deleted. Frankly I'd be game to see the number of deletions go down and the number of people that require admin/mod attention to stop "bad uploads" go down, too.

It's just a system that would solve a lot of problems and ease the workload for all staff that involve themselves in the previously mentioned activities. With this system uploading this way wouldn't be so much bad behavior it'd be more like post number reserving. I mean once they figured out that their good deed wasn't actually getting counted I feel they'd probably want to learn why... as opposed to being punished for doing what they thought was a good deed which just puts people off to helping entirely.

You have no idea how expensive it is to run e621 as is. The only reason this page has existed beyond 2010 is that Varka decided to host it out of Bad Dragon's pockets. We're not keeping the page "old" because we like punishing people, we're hard strapped to update the page because it's labor intensive and expensive to hire people for it. e621 is not a high priority venture of Bad Dragon, and never has been, thus it gets treated as such.

The ridiculous reason being what? That we slap people on the proverbial fingers for doing something that another person needs to clean up?
You're arguing that we should be happy someone donated a soggy book with half the pages no longer being legible, because this way "it's already in the database".

Promotions give access to tools that might require us to roll back to an earlier back up because we'd no longer be able to easily fix it. The benefits of promotions are also only worthwhile for people that actually do things like go on massive tagging sprees. There is literally no benefit in being a contributor or privileged for a "normal" user that is simply here to favorite, look at stuff, and comment.

How many people do you think actually hit 100 tag edits an hour? The answer is barely nobody.
Locking ratings on posts is another thing, why should that power be in the hands of someone we don't trust to know our rating system?
Again, GameManiac is the best example here of someone who only did things to increase a personal counter so he could flaunt it. What most people didn't realize was that that number has just been inflated without any regard to quality. He actually abused his user level to do that, and we're still reaping the rewards and fit tagging errors we have to fix manually.

The staff involvement would still stay the same, because we'd have to approve that it actually is an improvement over the existing post. The only benefit would be for the end user, and honestly I'd like having that alone. You'd also still have people come whining to the staff that "someone stole their upload". The people that actually do upload the better versions are already treated like they're the devil by a lot of other users. I'd rather they get more recognition for doing something properly than having to give recognition to someone that apparently doesn't.

Beyond all that I fully trust Kira's assessment of what parts of e621 need to be higher prioritized than just small QOL improvements. Preserving comments or votes (or even favorites) aren't exactly critical portions to keep the page running. But also, if you're willing to volunteer your coding expertise (Ruby, Rails, postgreSQL, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and/or PHP?) we're still looking for volunteers.


Relatable, but some users have the image "deleted" as their avatars for this reason...

I mean, it's a big hassle for a user to get an avatar and call it a day, and the next time they log in, it's gone, deleted for being "inferior".

To make it short, why not merge/redirect the images to the better image, like how they do it on Derpibooru?

I believe it automatically sets the new and higher quality post as your avatar, once the other has been deleted.

As NotMeNotYou said, coding isn’t the easiest thing right now, due to budget and how many there’s actually doing it, and while I don’t know much about code, i can imagine that making it so that images merge/redirect isn’t the easiest.

Back because my post limit dipped into the negatives again due to past uploads before a post limit based on successful posts was even a thing. I've been pretty responsibly uploading ever since the whole tumblr thing was explained to me but if this keeps happening? Well, what's the point?

This the....second or third time it's happened? The first time the admins didn't get back to me for days so y'know what. Think I'm done uploading. I'll just browse 8/


SilkywereRedux said:

That post upload limit has been a thing since the beginning of e621 back in 2007.

However, I increased your limit to 15 again.


Let me put it to you in simple terms. You are uploading to a picture library where it's pretty much a battle to get the best picture possible. At some point for many situations even if it's not our fault the picture was taken down, we all end up getting something from our collection deleted, but you can make it easier on yourself by making sure it's the best picture possible to upload.
I'm looking at your deleted posts and I see, there is a lesson you are not learning, because it's non-stop all the way down the line, "Inferior version/duplicate of post". You are making it WAY too easy for uploaders to build off your mistakes.

Looking at their deleted posts, this is still hit of the tumblr raw situation which wasn't given to anyones attention until like one year ago.

But then again, many of these uploads have been here for couple years, so after seeing that people are replacing your own uploads, you can take the action in your own hands and manage your own past uploads - like many did and tried to inform others of. Everyone is still responsible for their own uploads. Last couple days there has been user replacing many of their own posts, because they saw artist releasing HD package.

user:USERNAME bvas is good way to start as many users and staff will tag your uploads with this if it needs replacing. With tumblr, going trough user:USERNAME source:tumblr width:1280 and user:USERNAME source:tumblr height:1920 is good idea and if you have been troughout enough with your uploads, even just checking user:USERNAME source:tumblr*_1280. is most likely good idea.

Again, I only recently learned about the tumblr raw thing. Which, as Mario said, was only brought to sitewide attention a year ago and I've been here for? 6-7 years now? Been uploading as much as I could since then too. So most of those aren't really my fault, I feel? To my knowledge, I was getting the best pictures I could, NOT being "careless". But, people seemed to always find something better either the next day, month, even years down the line so hey.

I don't stay on artist. If I see a pic that might be neat to put here I try and find the best version I can and put it there. If the artist releases an HD package and I don't know about it, that isn't my fault. I don't follow these artists.

Really just seems like this system needs to be reworked. But, as a non-uploader, I'll let you all figure that out.

If you want some good quality pictures, go for Drachenmagier's works.


Appreciate it, whichever mod fixed my post count. Kinda pointless though, it's just going to drop again.

It's at 14 now as we speak and I haven't uploaded anything in a month lol

Think of it this way. We have rules. You 'broke' the rule by uploading a smaller version than the maximum. you didn't get in trouble for it, you just got a tiny ding on your account and moved on.

You have gotten this warning over 300 times.

300 times you've been told "you should upload bigger versions" ... the tumblr things only been known about for a year, yet you've had pictures that were replaced 3 years ago--before we knew about the tumblr thing, so it's not just 'the tumblr thing'.

But you've received LOTS of warnings about this. and when you said that you ran out of uploads, you were given more uploads.

Honey. I don't see how you're being 'punished' here. You don't have a negative record on your account. you've been told some 300 times to uplaod bigger picturres, and have a fresh,. new, shiney upload limit that is bigger than a new account would start with. and this is not once, not twice, but the THIRD time this has happened.

I honestly feel like the site is being very kind to you.

I use an image-magnification extension that, on most websites, can get you the highest quality image available *on that website* (ie, tumblr)... if you would like this, let me know and I can walk you through it. otherwise, there's a guide somewhere--probably linked in this thread'' on how to get the highest quality versions from each website.

Think of it this way. We have rules. You 'broke' the rule by uploading a smaller version than the maximum. you didn't get in trouble for it, you just got a tiny ding on your account and moved on.

You have gotten this warning over 300 times.

300 times you've been told "you should upload bigger versions" ... the tumblr things only been known about for a year, yet you've had pictures that were replaced 3 years ago--before we knew about the tumblr thing, so it's not just 'the tumblr thing'.

But you've received LOTS of warnings about this. and when you said that you ran out of uploads, you were given more uploads.

Yep. And 300 times I've tried to find best versions. I've uploaded what I thought were the biggest available. On occasion I've flagged those myself and re-uploaded when I found out that wasn't the case. Most of my pictures COME from tumblr, so yeah it WAS mostly 'the tumblr thing'. I've only JUST recently gone to FA, I rarely go on dA, most of my findings are tumblr sourced.

But I'm not going to argue with you, former staff member. I said I was no longer uploading, so this won't be an issue for you or any *current* staff member. I still feel the system could do with a rework, but since that would ultimately not affect me either, it's not my concern.

I've said my piece. Have a nice day, everyone.
