The site will be going down at 4pm PST for about 15-20 minutes, so we can perform a RAM upgrade. Worry not, we'll be coming right back up afterwards! -Varka

Hey guys, did you know that you can filter out and sort your search results, as well as search by properties such as resolution, rating, and even aspect ratio? It's true! Just click the gold "Search Help" link just above the search box. Some of you have been coming up with some great ideas for searching that our current system can actually already handle. :) Give it a try! You might be surprised how much control you can have over your searches.

We have rolled back our recent system changes and will be reattempting them in the 24-48 hours. We need more SSDs to keep the site running quickly and are having them installed as we speak!

Hey guys, regardless of what you may have seen proposed in the News recently, our Tag What You See rule is still unchanged from this here. Remember, the only recent change was to allow using external information for tagging character NAMES only, NOT gender or virtually anything else. PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE RULE! Thanks! :)

Site Update: We've temporarily disabled the tag sidebar on the post index (when searching) since it seems to be the cause of the performance problem. It'll be back soon once we fix or rewrite it.
