Why can't there just be a good booru?
Literally shit, can only use 2 tags and the admin is greedy. Anyone who pays for those extra features should literally exile themselves from this planet.
Literally shit but 3x times worse.
I suspect the admin of Danbooru and Gelbooru collaborates together because Gelbooru is taking away so many features (such as removing parent:child) so if you want features, you'd go to Danbooru and if you want to see more (shittier) images, you'd go to Gelbooru.
Why can't there be a good Booru? everything else is shit so don't even recommend. shit like Sankakucomplex, just browsing through it makes me nauseous.
what's wrong with gelbooru? What other "features" would you possibly want? I can click on a character's name and see all the porn featuring them, as well as a bunch of other autistically-specific tags. the fuck else you want it to do.
>dislike take art directly from the original source.
Even nowadays possible sort it if you know tags.
>Don't know there is archive.

Your problem is only your problem.
>thinks nijie require account

How new are you?
Using Pixiv along with boorus is usually the best way to go. Like those other guys said, artists on Pixiv are fucking always deleting their accounts. Good thing boorus have backup images unless the artist is unpopular or has asked them to remove the images as well.
>Good thing boorus have backup images unless the artist is unpopular
*booru don't backup even 10% of popular artist:
Literally: You could not step twice into the same rivers.
If you one time found a image on pixiv, this art ~90% you'll never see on *booru.
pretty much this
i haven't actually used it in a while so i don't know if anything significant has changed, but anyone whining about gelbooru is just stupid or ignorant. maybe suggest some ways to improve it if you have a problem.
if you want to see less "shitty" images, search with rating:>10 or whatever the syntax is. what's the matter? other people don't like things according to your preference? then fuck off to some blog that does, because booru's aren't meant for subjective inclusion/tagging.
better yet, find your own shit like >>14613165
I mostly use Danbooru because sorting through shit on Pixiv is a pain. For artists that have dedicated fans, there will also be material uploaded and collected from multiple sources (twitter, nicoseiga, tumblr, the occasional uploaded scan). Artists who are actually my favorites I follow on Pixiv, in case the uploaders never got around to or decided not to upload something.
Danbooru also has translations for people who are into such things.
The worst is when an artist tags the character name but not the franchise or something. Or they tag with a stupid nickname. Danbooru has spoiled me with how autistic they are about tagging, I hope it never ends.

>the admin is greedy
So you already know why.
And I'm not defending the cunts, but if you're not, do keep your own booru. There's enough FOSS implementations, you'll just have to shoulder the server costs. And if, unlike the greedy fucks who keep the shit boorus we know, you are not greedy, then it'll be a great booru.

And I only use Safebooru when linking something to someone I am not sure I should be sending to a site with hentai, incase they go clicking around on thier own.

I won't lie; it's quite a bit of work. But having a local booru is nice.
Pixiv is the best repository, but looking for pictures is absolutely retarded.
Even a single concept usually has 4-5 different ways of being spelled, each of the spellings having different nuances and ways they're misused in such a way that you're constantly filtering through mountains of stuff that have nothing to do with the tag you've typed.
On the flip-side, you CAN'T be specific with your tags, because 90% of artwork
(pulled the number out of my ass, but if it's not 90% then it's still THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY)has only 3-4 tags, one of which is the name of the series/character, while the remaining ones are Pixiv memes or categorization tags (eg: 100usersiri or similars).
Let's not forget that Pixiv has no middle ground, so you can't browse a scale of bad to good artists. Everyone on the site is either a god-level digital painter, or someone who uploads low-res photos of scribbles on notebook paper.
All in all, after you're done checking what's new from your bookmarked artists, browsing Pixiv is a constant sifting through MOUNTAINS of things you don't want, only to find a single pic that even falls in the spectrum of 'acceptable'.
Even the premium features are useless in this regard, since sorting by popularity ensures you'll only see pictures you'd find on Gelbooru, or pieces by shit artists with cult followers.
I really hate that it's still my main site, because trudging through that shit pile is the only way of seeing 'everything' coming out.
Would you perhaps know how to pull images from the new follower list? Going through that every day is a pain in the ass. Now I let it sit at like page 80~96 and push it back to 80 when it gets close to 99.
Like I said, separately western and separately shitty. But almost universally shitty, whereas there are some good Japanese artists. The worst thing is they bring their stupid western fetishes and I have to see them whenever I look up anything popular enough in the west for them to know the Japanese tag for it.
Also has to be censored
Also the stupid way they animate images.
Meanwhile boorus have webm support now.
>- intermission ads (said it can be changed with account)
Just block them with adblock. I don't remember how though, but I remember the admin or whoever telling how to when they first implemented them for people who got annoyed. I haven't seen any since.
Nude and riding a banana while cream drips down over her from the sky with full frontal nudity
Two girls covered from head to toe in semen, looking up at the viewer from a squatting position, with their hands cupped and mouths open

I hate the way people tag so much. Especially when they make dumb tags that only apply to their own works.
>Pixiv has no middle ground, so you can't browse a scale of bad to good artists. Everyone on the site is either a god-level digital painter, or someone who uploads low-res photos of scribbles on notebook paper.
You're a bit too elitist. There are some poor/decent artists who have charm.
>quality control keeps most of the deviantart grade shit out of the site.
Lets not forget the autists who sucked enough admin dick to get a pre-approved status, where they can upload whatever the fuck western garbage they want without going through the moderation queue.
>80+ pages of pixiv follow images
God damn. I guess there really is a use case for that then.
The Chrome version of the Koi Pixiv Extension allows 1-click downloading from the Pixiv History page. I DID find a way to pull info from the "New Work: Following" page a while ago, but I didn't implement it anything with it yet. I don't get that many unread pages so it felt unnecessary for me personally. Anyway, it's just a matter of doing it in a way that doesn't seem like more work than just going into the Follows list. Thinking about it now, I could have it done in one of two ways:
>Add an item to your Pixiv History that shows your "New Work: Following" list rather than a recommendation list when you click it.
>Add a button that temporarily swaps your normal Pixiv History list with the "New Work: Following" list.
Both are simple and would benefit from the Extension's 1-click downloading/manga-view functions. The former is arguably easier to implement, while the latter has more functionality, and is likely a much better use of the History Interface.
I paid those few dollars to Danbooru and can now do pretty much anything I want. Making such a ruckus out of a few bucks, that's quite sad. You know, for that money, I can eat out. Once, that is. It's literally nothing in the grand scheme of things. And why not part with a bit of money for something you deem worthy?
That being said, I work for a company running a MMO, and we're literally milking our users at EVERY SINGLE OPPORTUNITY. Feels really bad to work for jew lords. But the point is, Danbooru costs NOTHING in comparison and yields a lot more benefits.

At least don't tell lies while shilling.
Not only are all of your "gold-member" features freely available to anyone with half a brain, the staff is fully aware of and purposefully allows it.
Do you cry just as hard when you use a butter knife to cut steak?
my biggest issue with gelbooru is that a lot of stuff just isn't tagged. lots of times looking through a series tag will have more pictures of a character than just looking at the character tag, so you end up having to search through 20 pages instead of just 5.
I also hate how people upload 3dpd pictures. I don't want to look at some nasty ass cosplayer when I'm trying to fap, and sometimes they aren't even properly tagged so you can't blacklist them with -cosplay.
This right here is why I keep using Boorus. There is a lot of art on Pixiv that doesn't get uploaded to them, but there's no standardized tagging on Pixiv so searching for anything more complex than a character or series is useless.
I'm not an autistic weeaboo do I don't care about Western artists do long as they're at least passable (no, not drawing in generic anime style doesn't make them automatically shit). DA is filled with stupid people and doesn't allow R-18.
I never understood why the western weeb community is content to just leech of the Japanese community and never contribute OC of their own. Yeah, a lot of the artists are shit but a lot of the Japanese ones are too if you actually took a look at Pixiv.
I wouldn't know. Since I noticed the influx of frozen pictures I added it to my already quite tag large blacklist.
Which makes me remember: I skipped another danbooru advantage: you can just blacklist shit you don't want to see, and it works.
maybe I'm literally albert. Maybe I actually buy the touhou CDs too, because I believe in supporting good work.
That's not what I mean.
On danbooru, you are required to tag everything you see in a picture. For instance, if I want to look at images featuring characters with aqua hair, I can just type "aqua_hair" into the search bar. If I want to, for whatever bizarre reason, look at pictures featuring girls with aqua hair giving paizuri with an open jacket and wearing black thighhighs from the perspective of the man getting a titjob...I can type that in and find them.
On Pixiv, that's not required. People don't autistically tag everything in a picture, they often just tag the character, series, and maybe the fetish involved or something distinct about it.
>DA is filled with stupid people and doesn't allow R-18.
DA is just as good as pixiv, with shit artists and non-shit artists.
And it does allow R-18, just not R-18 normal people would find R-18, which is my problem. Even if I don't search for R-18 on pixiv, I'm met with pic after pic of stupid fetishes.
>I never understood why the western weeb community is content to just leech of the Japanese community and never contribute OC of their own.
There's a number of reasons.
1. Think about someone who really likes samurai and samurai movies. They want to make their own, so they go off and make Star Wars. It's a good movie in its own right, but do you think it's something other people who like samurai and samurai movies consider it at home among the other samurai movies they like?
2. Western companies who get anime rights act like greedy crazy misers about it and would be more willing to pursue doujin creators than anywhere else.
3. People generally have gripes with Jap stuff, so they go "If I made this, I wouldn't do X, I'd do Y and Z instead!", and then they go do Y and Z and it loses the feel of an anime/manga style work.
4. Modern culture (even Jap anime) in particular is too much about trying to be part of something than being part of it, so a work inspired by anime would be like "look at how anime this is!", "look at how we reference Japanese cartoons and games!" rather than its own thing. (which is also true of modern anime which is more about promoting NEET and otakuism than poking fun of oneself for being a NEET otaku)
The result is that weebs think little of non Jap creations because they don't properly/faithfully emulate the work and are discouraged from creating because they feel theirs will turn out the same way or get shut down.
Extra: Westerners are decent at erodoujin, except that most of them have no concept of "sexiness". I don't fully understand it myself, but the kind of forms, poses, and expressions they draw just aren't erotic, even if they're a good artist or perfectly replicate an "anime" style. There's just something about virgin Jap otakus' insane depictions of sex.
Worthless. I like Konachan/Yande.re's layout though.
>you in 2020, when anime is declared illegal worldwide and all Japanese cartoon style media is forcibly erased from the internet through the seizure and destruction of offending servers.
>Not only are all of your "gold-member" features freely available to anyone with half a brain, the staff is fully aware of and purposefully allows it.
How? BBB doesn't work anymore.

Alt-boorus are just boorus with a certain tag on by default. See >>14619205
Every word in your post is bullshit, including the post you replied to. >>>/a/
>OP, have you ever considered not brreathing and holding your breath all day?
e621 has lots of games.
>Anyone who pays for those extra features should literally exile themselves from this planet.
I had some extra bitcoin. Its pretty nice.
>Parent/Child got removed in order to promote pools.
While it is BS that he refused to comment on it any further, Gelbooru has a serious issue with nobody using pools and making overly specific tags.
As far as I see it, tags are for artist, source of work, and physical descriptions of the work. Pools should be used to categorize concepts or ideas.
While Parent/child should be a tag, people on Gelbooru should use pools more often, along with translation.
Pixiv is not a repository, its a DeviantArt with tagging.
Personally, I use Danbooru for pools and translations, and Gelbooru for porn.
Sankaku, gelbooru, danbooru etc is all shit but a lot can be salvaged if you're good. I personally browse yande.re. Typically I have no need to see every shitty image on danbooru.
Pixiv is strictly for stalking favorite artists.
Definitely the biggest problem with pools is that it isn't very tag oriented.
Outside of doujin page ordering, they're just collective opinions that may or may not fly for other people. And you can't do good search manipulations with them. You need to know the pool's ID number for things like that and no one remembers a pool that way
PROTIP: " width:1920 height:1080 "
You should be able to search by resolutions too, but people are bad at tagging http://www.gelbooru.com/index.php?page=wiki&s=view&id=2080
Danbooru has a ratio search though. (ratio:x:y) I wonder why Gelbooru doesn't have as many search types.
Also here's a list of options for dan&gelbooru so you can see what I mean
Keyboard navigation and shortcuts.
F - add to fav
C - jump to comment box
T - edit tags
V - toggle full size
S - save current size
R - rate up
D - rate down
Q - jump to search
A - perform artist search
H,Left - Previous page / Next ID
J,Down / K,Up
L,Right - Next page / Previous ID
Just off the top of my head.
Allowing doujinshi cover uploads and linking them to thedoujin would be nice, too. (Does anyone even use it?)
>I suspect the admin of Danbooru and Gelbooru collaborates together because Gelbooru is taking away so many features (such as removing parent:child) so if you want features, you'd go to Danbooru and if you want to see more (shittier) images, you'd go to Gelbooru
I've been convinced of this since forever.
it's entirely Pixiv's fault for opening themselves up to the western community
the only westerners that care to post on Pixiv are degenerates who can't draw
DA might be full of degenerates, but at least westerners who can draw post there.
man, paheal's tagging is so fucking bad and I hate it
if you don't know what you want exactly, you're probably not finding it without digging
>- images never get translated
I remember that not being the case like 2 years ago, what happened?
once I noticed all the things I liked (hentai, youtube videos, etc) were disappearing when I tried to go back to them later, I started saving shit heavily
and then cloud storage as primary storage is for chumps, it's just a stupid idea and anyone who says dumb shit like "you'll always have the internet available" is a chump (fuck, most of the time when I'm even interested in looking at certain things is when I'm having network issues)
I did around when it first started I think.
Uploaded some shota doujins for download points.
after I found sadpanda, I left and never looked back
>the only westerners that care to post on Pixiv are degenerates who can't draw
More like Pixiv is the only site which allows loli.
Every other gallery service bans it as soon as it becomes popular.
I prefer Sankaku. It has all of the images of Gelbooru, Danbooru, Yandere, Konachan, etc. and more. The recommendations/similar images feature will lead you down a rabbit hole every time. Unfortunately API access is locked down.
>paheal's tagging is so fucking bad
paheal's everything is so fucking bad. Also something is fucking wrong with its searching.
I like how it tends to just only do character or series though, it makes certain things a lot easier instead of just searching up a bunch of tags. I don't know why I even go there instead of the other R34boorus. (It's because you have to be specifically looking for certain series with furshit to get furshit instead of furshit being everywhere)
>once I noticed all the things I liked (hentai, youtube videos, etc) were disappearing when I tried to go back to them later
I hate when I find something(like on youtube), and it's been there for like years, then I go back to it a day or 2 later and its suddenly gone. It happens way too much to be a coincidence.
>Yeah, youtube is killing all regular user content
I thought they were only killing company and big name content uploaded by users, which isn't really user content unless it's been notably modified in some way.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Full of Western batshit
They're cute/sexy and too many sites have disappeared in the past with the images they contained lost forever. By saving them, you can be sure you have them and repost them for future generations.
>Your home overflowed by shit
>You're surrounded by sea of piss
We are should protect own weebsite on own worldwideweeb or the next time we will seek another country to survive or even another planet.
So after reading this thread, Idecided to donload Greasemonkey and Better Better Booru for it. However, even though now I can look up "loli" in the search box, no images appear.
Should I just get rid of it and stick with Gelbooru and Sankaku for my loli needs or is there a way to fix it?
Did you make sure to actually turn on "show loli" in the Better Better Booru settings on Danbooru?
Pretty much this. Its just a different approach at a "retard filter" like exhentai has.
Hide the loli and copyright issues behind some sort of obfuscation. Its hilarious when authors go through the effort to request danbooru "delete" their shit, because all they do is just hide it through the same retard filter.
>You have to play into their pyramid schemes and stupid minigames though.
No? I just made an account, waited about a week and then I
used the Haruhichan ExHentai Easy addon or whatever it's called.
