Gone for a while
I believe that ableism should be included under Rule 2b. Some examples would be the retarded tag (link), images such as >>1372802 as well as other images that make jokes about someone’s disabilities, mental or physical

I can't make a new conversation (the dm feature) on this site, while the conversations page still exists it's clear that it's been removed purposefully.
So I was wondering why and will it ever be added back? I personally really like the feature and was going to use it before noticing it's gone on here.

We've made a slight edit to rule 2c in our rules page. The intent remains the same but the wording is hopefully more clear.

The previous version was:
"Do not upload suggestive, questionable or explicit content of characters generally considered to be underage."

The new version is:
"Do not upload suggestive, questionable or explicit content of characters portrayed as, or intended to be, underage."

It was brought to our attention that the old version was not clear enough and left room for misunderstandings. Let us be clear that the our intent was always to allow not-safe content of characters that are usually minors as long as they are aged up in a convincing manner.

As for what counts as "convincing", there's a few factors. For humans and anthros it's usually easy and relies mostly on proportions. When it comes to ponies or some races in the show, it gets more difficult. Proportions or size can sometimes not be enough, depending on the artist's style and even within the show's style itself, so we have to take into account things like context, maybe anatomy and finally but most importantly, artist intent. Manebooru considers it very important to respect artists' wishes and preference in regards to their own art and we're gonna keep trying to uphold that as much as possible.

There are certainly edge cases that can be seen one way or the other and the team acknowledges them. We try to draw a coherent line but it's not going to be perfect. For anyone that finds these cases upsetting you are free to report them or approach us and we can at least give you our reasoning, your might disagree anyway but try to acknowledge where we're coming from and leave it at that.

For anyone who in no way, shape or form wants to see this content that classifies as aged up, or doesn't want to risk the edge cases, we recommend hiding tags like "older apple bloom" or "older spike". It is our policy that any not-safe content involving certain characters must, by necessity, have these tags in them, and we enforce it very strongly, so it should be pretty safe.

The topic is up for discussion for anyone that wishes to do so. If you want to link to examples or something, please make sure to spoil it properly.

Dear staff:
There is one thing I have been quite confused about since joining this site a few days ago: why are there so many people in the Manechat Discord server that you operate, and yet so little actual activity here on this site? I would think that many of the people that use the Manechat would also like to comment on images directly that are uploaded to this site, or even upload images themselves. Instead, the only people who seem to be uploading here, other than the one image I uploaded myself, are the people that operate the site, and comments are very few and far between, as well. Are the people on the Discord server just not interested in this site? If so, I think that is quite sad, since from my own experience this site has been amazing. Hopefully you all can help clarify that a bit.

Please use this thread for requesting or suggesting any changes to tags. Implications, aliases, new prefixed tags, descriptions, whatever comes to mind.

The current spoiler tags are:

spoiler:comic (season 10) — Implied by spoiler:comic 89 all the way to spoiler:comic 94 for now, more will be added or changed as the issus publish.

spoiler:g5 — Implied by my little pony g5 show and my little pony: the movie (2021), placeholder tags until we have proper titles.

That means simple g5 fanart or character design is no longer considered a spoiler. We're gonna hold that tag for teaser/trailer stuff and possible leaks.

Additionally, this isn't completely decided yet, but assuming the movie releases on a streaming platform as promised, it will likely be considered to be in spoilers for a week, maybe two. After that it will be free-for-all
For the show and each of its episodes, it's going to depend a lot on the release schedule, so we'll let you know.

Since rape is grimdark, should dubcon get the semi-grimdark rating? Some images already have it and I feel like it makes sense

Since Derpibooru has a thread for OC Description Requests, why shouldn't Manebooru?
I didn't see anyone start it yet, but since there was discussions about it on the Discord server, I figured it was time to start one! I'll copy-paste most information from Derpi, since they'll apply here, and update any links to Manebooru ones!


We are now opening the ability to request OC tag descriptions to anyone, provided they follow the requirements below. It's important to know, before making a request, that OC tags are not owned by anyone. They are not verified like artist tags are. They are just for what we hope is helpful information. If two OCs have the same name, they can share the same tag, like OC:Jasmine.

→ 1. List the Character's name. Use a relative link. If you don't know how, just copy and paste the text below and replace anon or cloudy canvas with the name you're requesting a description for:

Typing "oc:anon":/tags/oc-colon-anon gives you oc:anon
If the character has a space in their name, replace it with a plus sign: "oc:cloudy canvas":/tags/oc-colon-cloudy+canvas becomes oc:cloudy canvas

This link must be entirely in lowercase; the link won't work otherwise.

→ 2. List the creator's Derpibooru account, if they have one. The easiest way to find this is just to click their artist tag and see if there's an associated user. You can link the account in the post the same way as you do the OC name in step 1:

Typing "NorthernDawnArt":/profiles/NorthernDawnArt creates a link to the account: NorthernDawnArt. Note that the account names are case-sensitive!

If they don't have an account (or it's not public), include a link to the creator's primary website, such as a DeviantArt, Tumblr, Furaffinity, Patreon, or Pixiv acccount. If you know of a website where you can find out more about the OC (such as a Tumblr "Ask" page) list that as well. If any of these outside links are NSFW, please mention that they are.

If the creator is truly unknown, or a collaboration, state that. Some OCs originated on 4chan's /mlp/ board and are collaborations and we list them as such.

→ 3. List the character's species and (primary) sex. Use whatever binary or nonbinary terms you wish. If they often appear as a R63 version, or if they're usually in human or anthro form, feel free to mention it.

→ 4. Description: Write one or two lines describing their personality, hobbies, job, physical traits, sexual orientation, or other characteristics that are noteworthy. This must be safe-rated (even if a majority of the pictures of the character are not), so be creative. If they are involved somehow (employed by, related to, lover of, neighbors of, etc.) with another character (canon or OC), mention it. Please link any other related OC in the same manner as the link in step 1.

→ 5. Image Link a safe-rated image of the character that is posted on Derpibooru. Link using the >>123456s format. Images where they are solo and in pony form (for anthros) are greatly preferred.

Any requests going forward that don't meet these criteria will be rejected, but we'll try to state why so that you can fix it.

Not sure if there is any place to post this, but I wanted some place to post character tags that could be set as "Character:name" tags.

I will add as I go, but if others discover something then they can post it here too.

First one I have found is Bloomberg the tree.

Is this a glitch? I submitted a couple yesterday and they still haven't appeared on the front page, even though they processed.

Yes, you can. We can't do it for you (at least not currently), but importing a watchlist is simple to do, at least if you're importing from a different Booru.

Much like the tags in an image, your watchlist is saved in your settings as a bunch of tags, and that bunch can be edited in what we call a Plain Editor way, which allows for easy copy-pasting.
If you got to https://manebooru.art/settings/edit in your own account you can see the section I'm talking about, in the first tab titled Watch List. You can simply go to the same menu on the other site, click the Plain Editor button there, copy the list, come back to you settings here, click Plain Editor and paste it here. After that you just save your settings.

I hope that was clear, if not here's a couple images that might help.
It is possible for an artist to have different tags across sites, but in my experience this is fairly uncommon. In cases like that you can ask around and maybe one of us (or a user) will know the appropriate tag.

The featured image tag isn't working as intended, as some images are tagged with it I know have never been featured (for example, >>4005296 was uploaded two days ago, and >>1318737 was featured at that point in time). I would assume this is because the booru importer is bringing the tag over from Derpi, where some of these images were featured. Is it possible for the importer to not import that specific tag?

Hey, another question, this one of no real importance. I was wondering if Manebooru does/will possibly someday allow for fan works to have detailed descriptions, similar to Derpibooru (I know you must be sick of hearing "will this Derpi feature be used" but here we are…) As an example, on Derpi the "oc:brownie bun" tag explains briefly who she is and has a small picture of her. And if that is something Manebooru wants to include, what is the criteria of notability for a tag to get that?

The reason I'm asking is I recently uploaded 103 images to my own "series:who we become" tag, and I'm a vain bitch who wants to feel special about herself with a detailed description lmao. I get that stuff like this probably isn't a priority right now, and even if it's not an intended feature at all I'm not stressing it, I just figured I'd ask.

Hi, I'm uploading some art from a friend who deleted all their pony accounts. They left the fandom and don't want to be involved with it in any way, but I do have permission to post their art related to my characters/stories on boorus, and I decided to make Manebooru the home for all art related to my stories (so long as I have artist permission).

Anyway, the description for the Manebooru Original tag says it should be used when a piece of art is posted to Manebooru first. This art was previously posted to Tumblr, but that Tumblr has been deleted. Would it be appropriate to use the Manebooru Original tag, as this is the only site the art will be on, or should I omit the tag because I'm not the artist and it was previously uploaded elsewhere? And if I omit the tag, what's the correct way to do it? Dead source, perhaps?

The kelpies in season 10 arc 1 look nothing like the ones from actual mythology, or that issue of the comics that focuses on the Mane 6's pets. As a result, I'm considering making a "kelpie (s10)" tag. However, it might not see much use because no-one reads the comics. What do you think?

I can’t figure out how to view nsfw images, I assume they exist do to not being able to see all the images associated with a given tag.

Good morning, everyone.

Let's have a little chat about accountability, trust, and the way our moderation team works.

As many of you know, we were contacted yesterday by an artist whose artwork had been edited without authorization and posted onto the Booru without proper attribution during its testing phase. Because the specific moderator contacted was also the editor of the work, they recused themselves and handed the issue off to the rest of the moderation team, who dealt with the issue in under an hour. The art in question was removed immediately from the site, and other artwork by the artist was removed from the site at their request. At the time of writing, a formal Do-Not-Post has not been filed, but the team is enforcing an unofficial DNP on all works by this artist until a formal DNP is created at the artist's discretion. I have personally been in communication with the artist and we are working together to figure out what we can do to make this right.

The Manebooru team stands by the moderation actions taken in response to this issue, but we acknowledge that it was a severe oversight that led us to this situation in the first place. We take the trust of our users seriously, and the trust of the art community as a whole is very important to us. It's hard to run an art site founded on the idea that artists come first if we don't keep a close eye on our own activities and potentially infringe on someone else's work.

This fandom has seen enough drama in recent months. We can't express how disappointed we are in ourselves for contributing to some of it in this manner. Nothing we can say or do now will change what happened in the past. All we can do is work hard to rectify the situation and take steps to ensure it doesn't happen again.

As always, our lines of communication are open for feedback. We can be reached via email, on Discord, and in this forum thread. We are constantly working to improve ourselves and this site, and we want to hear your thoughts.

The full conversation between our moderation staff and the artist can be seen publicly here (Discord comment link) or here (Imgur link). The private Discord chat logs between our staff and the artist have not been included at the artist's request.

Hello there,
we wrote a tool which can automatically import your art from other imageboards (for example derpibooru) into Manebooru. It mostly automatically filters out stuff which is not allowed here on this site and also adjusts tags if needed.
Image IDs are copied and descriptions contain the original description, who uploaded it when and how many favorites/upvotes it had.

If you want your art to be imported, please either send us an email (see https://manebooru.art/pages/contact ), contact me on Discord, or (if you are verified already) post your artist name tag here in the forum.

We can also import the art of your favorite artists, if you asked them for permission and have a screenshot, a public tweet or similar as proof.

This is only an optional offer, which is supposed to help you migrate your content and thus get more people to see your art!

Did you try to upload a .mp4 file and you got an error that looks a lot like this?

Image can't be blank
Image size can't be blank
Image width can't be blank
Image height can't be blank
Image mime type (video/mp4) is invalid
Image duration can't be blank
Image orig sha512 hash can't be blank

That's because Philomena only supports WebM video, and transcoding is extremely hardware-intensive to do on the server side.

So how do I upload videos, then?
If you have a .mp4 file, you can search online for many online conversion tools, such as Convertio or CloudConvert. The default settings should be good enough, but you will need to change the audio codec (see below).

If your file is too large to upload to an online conversion tool, Handbrake is a powerful encoding tool that's available on all platforms. (It's a frontend for ffmpeg, so if you're familiar with that software Handbrake should be fairly straightforward).

Please use the following settings when transcoding:
Video codec: vp9 (sometimes called libvpx-vp9)
Audio codec: vorbis (opus is the default, but not all browsers support it yet, so your video might not have sound!)

Please post below if you have any questions!

You may have uploaded something and now you notice that you can't see it.

Default filters keep out new images for a short amount of time in case of mistagging, to prevent people from seeing content they shouldn't. It's currently set to 10 minutes, for the beta it might still be overkill but in the future it might not be enough. We do not know what volume of activity to expect or how quick mistags will be fixed.

This box that shows up right after an upload will soon be updated to include the same explanation. Hopefully it won't be easy to miss.

If you want to remove this condition in your own filter and don't know how, erase the text in thet last box when editing a filter, titled "Complex Hide Filter", or edit it to your own preferences.

Feel free to use this post for feedback or for further questions on filters.

You may have noticed our administration team is all canon characters. We have decided to separate out the administration responsibilities into their own accounts to avoid accidentally doing something while moderating or otherwise using the site that could break something. The moderator responsible for the administrator account is noted in their profile; for example, I am responsible for the Flurry_Heart account. These accounts have separate and distinct logins, and only the user listed in their profiles have access to them.

The only exception to this is the Twilight account, which is under the control of @Twilight#0511 on the site development team who does not perform any moderation (only administration for development work), so they do not have a moderator account.

If/when a moderator who is responsible for an administrator account retires, their administration account will be permanently banned from the site.
