To keep things separate and organized, anything related to the booru goes here. If you have any questions, suggestions, or find anything odd in there, discuss it here.
Technically, the forums can be enabled in the booru to keep discussion there, however, since this exists for now, that feature may be left to be enabled for the future.

One thing I'd suggest when posting greentexts, you don't NEED to post the big image, you can separate them out in several images, make a Pool with a title of the greentext to make it easier to identify than the tags, and with Pooling, you can make it so that each post comes after the previous one, so it builds suspense, loads the images faster, and looks like a proper chapter/section.

Also, you don't need to delete the combo image of all the greentext posts. Just separate them into different images, post them, add a description if you want, then go to Pools -> New -> and give it a title, description, and then order the post numbers as its pages. So greentext 1/5 goes first, separated by a space, following the other post numbers.
Importantly, if you have an image for the cover page (or the combined greentext big image), you can put this post as the first number. Then make sure you select "Series" if you want it to display the first post as its cover image. If you select "Collection" it will only be seen in the "Listing" section or when you search. This will only have a title as text, and not a cover image.

This will make it easier to search for greentexts by title, hence why I went with this software, but you Anons keep just combining all the posts together and posting a one big image. Searching these by tags are a little hard.

In addition, if you want to just give it a title for now, you can make the Pool, give it a title and perhaps a description, then keep the post numbers just one, which is the combined big image of the greentexts. Maybe later some Anon would separate them if they want to. This way, at least your greentexts would have a title and a description, and can be searched for via the Pools page.

Anything in folders listed "PROCESS" are things I haven't had a chance to personally upload to the booru (as of the time I last updated the MEGA). While I would recommend starting there if you plan on uploading, just know that there's a chance some of the stuff in them (particularly art) has already been uploaded by someone else

I was thinking more along the lines of like, an Anon comes and writes a greentext that has let's say 3 parts, but this is done in one thread.
So, Pool Chapter 1 has 3 images consisting of each individual posts.
Then the Anon comes and continues it in another thread or something, and it has 5 parts. A new pool gets created, in the Pool description, you can link the other chapters. Unfortunately, this software doesn't have parent/child pooling that e6 does. But in the title it'll be like Pool Chapter 2 for instance, consisting of 5 image posts.

Go ahead, the idea is to basically keep it /co/ culture related in a sense if you get what I mean. So not EVERYTHING MD related like, random artists from random places, since that might be odd.
Usually whatever gets used here/in-the-culture, so reaction images, mostly-used-images, artwork, greentexts, etc
I'm assuming other artwork can come in too, but you gotta credit the artist. It is kind of finicky, since I don't want anything weird happening. There's DMCA in the site, but avoiding that would be ideal

With an opening in my IRL schedule coming up in the next couple days I figured I'd try for transparency as far as work on the booru goes. I'll try to provide progress updates on a (hopefully) regular basis
-
There are two areas in particular that I am planning on tackling for this coming week
>Work through the existing backlog of greentexts amongst my personal collection
>Work through the existing backlog of tabbed threads across the usual boards for uncapped/unsaved greentexts
While I do plan on giving both of these a considerable amount of attention, I'll most likely be prioritizing the former over the latter for the immediate future on account of seeing comments/requests for "missing" greentexts. My minimal goal is to get 50 uploads by the weekend, with an 'ideal' goal of 100~ if time and availability permits.

As far as long term goals go there is the prospect of fulfilling the request here (>>276) regarding the use of pools to help make a more ideal browsing/reading experience. I still plan on making a 'proof of concept' before going full steam ahead, but I do have a number of candidates already in mind (although I am of course open to suggestions!). Relatedly I am still debating on whether to simply edit existing caps or to try and re-cap straight from desuarchive; the former would definitely be much faster although the latter would probably both look better and give me an excuse to go about trying to (re)cap a number of older & incomplete greens

I know there's already a page dedicated to explaining the basic rules of tagging, but I'm wondering if a tag infograph (similar to the one I made about capping a long while back) might help clear up some of the ongoing confusion

On the topic of copyright tags, is there any specific tag for crossover/3rd party content (Warhammer, Dead Space or Internection Cube for example) or would just a general tag denoting the series be sufficient?

The only issue I'd have with AI is someone comes and dumps like 5000 different shitty iterations of one pose over and over again. If the generator spends time and generates one good image, I'm OK with that. So far there's one image it seems.

Actually a fast way to do it is to put everything in the Pool, then go to Pool -> Select your pool -> Click on "Posts" -> Select the "Mode" dropdown to "Edit" and as you click each image, it opens the tag edit of that post, so you can update it fast that way, instead of loading each post one by one.

The good news is that I managed to achieve a satisfactory number of personal booru uploads, and thanks to the awesome effort of other based booruanons there are now as of this post just over 2100 total posts!

The bad news (at least for me) is that headway into the massive backlog of threads, currently dating as far back as a little over a month old now, has been coming along far slower than I would have liked. As such I will be making rectifying this my top priority for this upcoming week, albeit at the expense of actual uploads in the short term.

As far as other things go I still intend on making up a helpful tagging infograph in hopes of explaining & further emphasizing the finer points of the tagging system (namely the importance of the distinct copyright tags along with some other high priority metatags). Relatedly, I am also interested in potentially some of the basic OC descriptions from the deck made a while back (https://dronebooru.co/posts/40) to their corresponding tags on the booru's wiki

hey what does the “sensitive” rating mean? i understand general, questionable, and explicit as far as sexually explicit content goes, but what’s “sensitive”?
No.2840
Writefriend
>>2782
My interpretation is that Sensitive covers content that sits between General & Questionable; Content that isn't necessarily sexual but could still be considered a tad much for General.

Admittedly I only put that story under sensitive as a precaution. While I personally feel like it would be fine under General I am not 100% sure if others (particularly those who consider 4chan in general to be "too scary to browse") would feel the same way. I'll make sure to ask one of the site admins for their judgement call later (unless they chime in here of course)

I would apply it to things like on-model nudity. The characters don't have anything inappropriate to see, but if they got no clothes on maybe it's not exactly "general" but also not "explicit"

If it is pending approval then you'll unfortunately have to wait for approval before being able to edit. It's admittedly annoying but it shouldn't take too terribly long for someone with powers to approve it.
IIRC the booru admin has said that approvers should be able to view & approve posts from other users in an upcoming update so that should definitely help with this

I'll setup this weekend to do it, and setup an update notice for Tuesday or something. or just push it stealthily, cause downtime is like around under 5-10 minutes.

Not a whole lot new to report from this past week. As of now I am roughly halfway through the current archive backlog with an optimistic prediction of being fully caught up by the turn of the month

I also have a partially completed tagging guide that I'm hoping to finish up & share within this coming week once I've accomplished (or at least reached a significant milestone) my archive dive. Regular booru uploads will also resume around that time with both general uploads and 'refinement' of a handful of existing posts being my stretch goal for this week

(Picrel is one of the noteworthy compilations I've made from the backlog thus far)
