If you know what needs to be done, we are happy to listen.

No, it is definitely not denial of service. We've checked

The "internal server error" may be fixed by restarting Philomena, which is why the site sometimes goes to "bad gateway." We haven't yet successfully found a way to stop it from happening, or why it is happening. We believe it is caused by a timeout of elastisearch, but we are not sure. We are trying things, but we are limited by the need to reindex images on test servers, as well as difficulty in recreating the error.

Right now the "contingency" solution is to move the site to a new server where an updated version of philomena is installed

Hello, I would like to bring to your attention that when I try to navigate to the page that allows me to add 2FA to my account, I get a page that says "Internal Server Error".

I am using Mozilla Firefox v119.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 11 22H2.
I even tested on Google Chrome v119.0.6045.124 and Microsoft Edge v119.0.2151.44, same result.

Steps to reproduce.
1: Have an account that is logged in
2: Have an account that does not have 2FA enabled before

(Steps to produce error)
1: Hover your mouse cursor over your avatar icon on the top right of the screen.
2: On the pop-up menu that appears, click 'Account'
3: Under 'Account Settings' heading, there will be a text saying 'Looking for two Factor authentication? Click here!' click 'Click here!'
4: A white page instantly appears saying 'Internal Server Error'

Feel free to move or delete this post if it is in the wrong place, as I thought it would have been best to post it here as it is a site issue, and not a general issue.

The image count error was found during testing. I believe the conclusion was that Pupper wrote a script to correct the image count, though presumably it will have to wait until the import is caught up.

As for the tag changes on the deleted image: at this stage, the script is only supposed to be updating changes in tags and legacy scores. Tag changes are noted in tag history, hence why they show up. Those tags were not in the data dump that created that image, and were evidently added in when the tags were updated, evidently existing in the data dump. The image that you linked does not show the actual picture even to moderators. I attempted to manually restore the image, and received an error. I checked the Derpibooru counterpart, and that image was deleted for lack of relevance to mlp.

Because there is no picture there to see or restore, and because the image is marked as “missing or deleted images,” I think that the image was probably deleted on Derpibooru prior to the initial import, and that the image never had an actual uploaded picture on PonerPics; the tag update added previously missing metadata (the tags), and this image is the phantom 38th image counted as having the “blood raven” tag.

But what I haven’t conclusively disproven is that the image previously existed on PonerPics and the new script deleted it because its counterpart on Derpibooru was deleted between the time of the initial import and now. I do not think that that is the cause because the actual image should be present were it so. I’ll ask Pupper to look into that, but he’s a big busy now.

I see two approaches and I know no one should trust TOR or VPN. Even if you use a hardened throaway gentoo/tails, with custom screen resolution there will always be one exploit left, given you have an army of professionals running scripts ( literally the government does that, the PHAROS platform here in France, the NSA, the FBI, Eurogendfor… ) that's their job. With more or less success. An autist with enough determination can also work hard and find ways to identify you on the internet, maybe you forgot to turn off Flash (showing your real IP) or post from a similar location, same language, or even do the silly mistake to post an avatar or a photo in JPEG that contains the EXIF data and signature of your camera or editing software.

Now FB, Twitter and major big sites makes it impossible to run without allowing all scripts or plugins or having a slightly secure but outdated browser.

Depends of the version, Windows 10 is insecure but for searching and digging, there was some telemetry on Windows 7 that can be removed and uninstalled, through GPEDit and some registry manipulations to fully disable and uninstall WU and other services. At this point really just dual boot Windows/Linux and boot on Linux when you need to, Or use it on a spare machine, so you can run both.

It's a WIP. Raindev is quite busy, same with myself and I'm already on several projects, but when we all have free time to play with ; could be intresting to test some stuff there, but basically it's still in development. Just keep in mind it started from scratch as well.

Thanks for the continued updates.

Unfortunately, I have a problem to report: When I'm on PonerPics looking at an image, say 2168912, and I try to open the drop down menu to swap to look at the image on other sites, the entry for the site I try to switch to in the drop down menu changes from saying "Search on [Other Site]" to "Something went wrong".

As far as one or two quick tests I did just now goes, swapping from the search results page on PonerPics to the search results page of the same search on one of the other sites seems to work just fine.

When we switched servers, the information on the old server was copied to this one. However, not all of it was copied, including user avatars, images, and evidently watch lists. The reason for this, is that each individual element transferred required finding that location in the database, then testing the function to make sure that something wasn't messed up, and so forth. So it's not a corruption, but your user avatar wasn't transfered and you'll have to reupload it. We're sorry for the inconvenience, but we wanted to transfer quickly and were afraid of unforeseen errors arising.

The old server can be found here

The server transfer is complete.

Ponerpics has completed it’s import of the archive – over 2150000 images, including 68,000 marked as deleted from derpibooru. However, this import only includes those images that were in the archive, and has a few gaps, like all of the images uploaded to derpibooru after July 8, 2020. We plan on filling all of those gaps with more imports in the near future, so the importation isn’t done. We also want to transfer a few key images from our old ponerpics server, but haven’t been able to yet. Maybe we can add those in the next few days, but maybe they will need to be uploaded again.

All of the imported images are tagged as “imported from derpibooru” and those deleted are marked as “deleted from derpibooru.” Images have their original image number from derpibooru, which means that links in the description work. They also have their original creation date and are sortable by that number. Ponerpics displays the derpibooru favorites, upvotes, downvotes, and score in parenthesis next to where these values normally appear. You can sort images by these values, and search with “derpi_upvotes” etc, and the same with combined scores. Tags have the same descriptions, images, and aliases as on derpibooru.

Not every piece of information was copied from the live ponerpics website because of limitations in testing ability and time. User avatars, moderation reports (including link and dnp requests), commissions, galleries, and private messages will have to be remade and reuploaded, as will all favorites, votes, and comments. Users who joined in the last few hours, after the information was transferred, will need to remake their accounts. Because of a discrepancy in how tags are numbered in the database, custom user filters will need to be remade.

You can still visit the current server at until about August 30.

The import comes with some changes and updates, like a fix to file upload problems, and email password reset. We are missing a number of changes we would have liked to make, like new themes, fixing problems with the current default theme, mp4 support, and links to the derpibooru images below the source. We are hoping those can be added in the next few weeks.

Please tell us if there are any issues or if you have any requests for things you want us to try to transfer from the old server. We know there is an issue with svg uploads, and there are 6200 images that refuse to generate thumbnails. We hope to fix these issues quickly. The import set also includes many non-pony related and spam images that will need to be deleted. Please report these.

If you notice images that need to be deleted, or have requests for transfers, or concerns, please comment here.

Early Adopter
Remember that all the sites are still adding two point four million pictures to their galleries. That's an insane amount of images to try to load in less than two weeks.

It's still early days yet. I'd say the real test for the boorus will come some time in the next couple of months.

Also Rainbooru is running on all-custom software that's being written and modified as we speak. Rainbooru has potential. Don't judge them too harshly for not being able to handle the ridiculous tasks being asked of it right now.
