Sure, just imported those images. They got their original IDs, thus they don't show up at the top of the main page of manebooru.

By the way, we currently are close to 500.000 images in Manebooru \o/

Ooh, can I get my art on here?
"artist:gangrene" on both sites. There might be a duplicate or five, some of my art already got here through the idw tag and artist:greyscaleart

I am quite busy the last few weeks, but will try to make time to import the requested art soon-ish.

We apologise, it seems this request fell through the cracks. Twilight said he will be available to do it on Thursday, we'll get back to you on that.

Oh, it looks like this isn't necessary! Sorry for bothering y'all staff, I thought only the bot would keep the IDs in place. (I'd still like that though.) If I upload this all myself I can curate it too!

The importer is primarily intended for either art you made or art of your OC. Topical tags are something you can choose to upload on your own, but isn't the purpose of the tool.

A question about this.

Once your name/ID is added, does your art automatically get imported from, for example, Derpibooru automatically on a regular basis? Or is it a one-time thing, intended for large-scale importation?

I ask because I'm one of those people who upload to a lot of different sites (FA, e621, Pillowfort… about 14, not including various discord servers) through the magic of PostyBirb. One of the main deterrents for me uploading my work here regularly is simply that there's no convenient way to do so when I bulk-upload to the many different sites where I have an account. As far as I know, there isn't any way to add other sites to PostyBirb manually for upload.

At the moment, it's one-time. We've opened issues and emailed the developers of PostyBirb about this, but they don't seem interested in genericizing their Philomena support over locking it to Derpibooru only. Unfortunately, we don't have a lot of control over that.

I'll bring it up with our developer to possibly set up recurring imports, but I honestly don't know how the importer works since I'm not a dev.
