Ponerpics Community Collaboration 2024

Deadline: July 7th

Tag: ponerpics community collab 2024

Hello again, I was thinking we could try and do another Community Collab this year. I know now probably isn't the optimal time to do it, with the Antithology and /mlp/con coming up, but I thought it'd be a good idea to have the collab done for July 7th as (I think) that's when the site first went live — 4 years ago. I plan to do a summertime field background for this one, so you might want to keep that in mind when creating your submission. Don't be afraid to have them in more dynamic poses such as flying, and maybe even swimming because I could try and add a lake or something to the foreground. I did consider changing the rules to allow show characters but frankly I prefer OC only. However, ultimately the rules can change if enough people disagree with them, so please discuss rules in the replies of this thread. Perhaps we could do show characters for a Hearth's Warming collab?

Rules:
Picture cannot contain multiple characters, unless the submission is itself a collaborative picture between multiple artists, in that case there can be one character per artist.
Submission must be of an OC, and not a character from the show.
Submission must be a quadrupedal show species, or near-pony original species.
Submission must be original to the collab, no recycling old work.
Submission must be safe or suggestive, not explicit.
No low effort art but beginner art is allowed (and encouraged!).
No anthro/humanized art.

Submission should have a transparent background, if you are unable to do so, then it must have a blank background with a clean outline around the character.
Submission should be colored, if for some reason you are unable to color your picture, PM me or leave a comment in this thread and we'll see if we can fix it.
You should not post your submission anonymously, as this will make it easier to verify it's legit, and make it easier to give you your badge (if you want it), but I'm not going to adamantly enforce this rule.

Disclaimers:
If you do not add the collab tag, or at least link your submission in this thread, then it obviously won't be included.
If you would like, you may post multiple drawings for the collab under your artist tag, but only one will be selected for the final picture.
Submissions uploaded the day before, or the day of, the deadline may not make it into the final picture.
Art may be also be rejected if: the image has been drawn as to take up an excessive amount of space; the image contains "SFW" fetish material; or the image is contentious political activism.
Submissions suspected to be trolling, shitposts, or spam will not be included.

If you have any questions you are hesitant to ask publicly, or you'd like to check your submission is okay via an external link (i.e. catbox/litterbox), then feel free to PM though my profile page.

The most popular president in American history (by number of votes) has rechristened Easter Sunday as Trans Awareness Day. Here at PonerPics, we like to do things after everyone else has already done them. Therefore, we are declaring Easter Monday to no longer be associated with a Christian Holiday, but with trans visibility, so that for one day out of a 366 day leap year, we may remember that Trans people exist. And of course, go back to forgetting about them the other 365 days a year.

Surveys have recently shown that the average booru user, in looking for images of cute ponies, may go as long as six hours without having a politicized sexual orientation shoved in their face. In order to prevent that, we’ve decided to make the entire CSS of the website one big, politicized flag to be shoved in your face, so that for this one day a year you may remember, “trans people exist.” Because, you know, otherwise you might forget that Transpeople exist. We sure did. But not today!

As Transpeople are ~1/160th of the population, we think it’s only fair to devote 1/366th of the year to them through changing our site colors. Because that’s how we show we care.

Hello everypony! In an effort to hopefully stabilize the website and end the frequent "internal server error" crashes… hopefully… we will be switching the site to the most up to date version of Philomena. This is a thread to announce these changes, discuss them, and of course, to report any errors with the new code.

Please be aware that PonerPics will be switching to a markdown syntax.

Among other changes, this update will fix the following:
- errors with favorites not transferring on merged images have been corrected
- "ghosting" of gif images is fixed
- the navigation arrows should now work properly
- images from other websites may be embedded
- image uploading through fetch is enabled
- links to the website will now always say "ponerpics" instead of "derpibooru"
- 2 factor authentication is corrected
- an issue with tag count is corrected
- an issue with search by legacy score not working has been corrected
- a new batch of image data has been added

And hopefully more will follow in a later batch; specifically updates to legacy data, tags, and the merging of duplicate images.

I think this one is about Lighting. It might have something to do with colour gradients, I don't study ways to describe this sort of stuff.

I was browsing, and stumbled on and . It looks like the first one is received better than the second one, even though the second one doesn't really seem much lower in quality.

There's something about the shading by the shoulder and the arms where adding additional steps makes it more interesting.

Looking at the differences in how changing the lighting and shadows of an image makes a big difference here, I'm interested in looking at some more images that show this difference. Seeing different lighting on the same image is neat, but I'm not yet able to easily visualize how different light sources of different colours, using direct or diffuse rays, or having it's colours change depending on interference with other light sources would actually change the end result. I can see that there's a different vibe, but I can't quite put into words why. Aside from the lighting error of that area of relative darkness between her nose and the bookcase / forearm, a lot of it looks pretty good to my eye.

Can someone who knows comment a bit more on how lighting changes things about the image when other factors are kept more or less constant?
How hard is it to do different lighting directions on a body?
How do you decide the lighting of an image, and at what point?
Do you know of similar sequences of images that are a similar study in lighting?
What about individual images that are specifically great at showing off lighting technique, or that do it to evoke very specific or very clear and direct vibes?

Thank you for your time.

Discuss which images need uploading. Either because artist is obscure, so imports from other boorus won't do it, or because of DNPs/rules on other booru.
Also particulars of getting high-res, and other uploader stuff.
Background Pony #027E
Thread for discussing site rules.

Specifically, I want to know what qualifies as "Keep uploaded images relevant to My Little Pony and its fandom " (Rule 2), to minimize false reports.

How far can a image deviate from MLP before it no longer has a place here?

Are fursonas allowed if they're tagged as Dragons/Abyssinians/Diamond Dogs?
Solo drawings of original species, not drawn in the show's style?
Humanized OC images that don't explicitly reference MLP at all?
Do different rules apply to OCs created by the fandom vs random people?
Are pictures of random cartoon horses allowed? Or only from certain sources?
Would a generic picture of Anon that doesn't reference anything in particular (beyond 4chan) be allowed?
What if that image was specifically first uploaded to /mlp/?

I know this pedantic, but it would be nice to have a better defined line between what is and isn't MLP-related. Also, the report page could use some work, the report system still uses Derpi's rules, which doesn't correlate with this site's rules (e.g. site rule 2 is 'Rule #3' on the report page), and there's a text box with a link to the Takedown Policy page, even though there isn't one.

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.
(prerequisites)
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.

And got deleted for no reason. Why this site is not allow anything but not pony, why this site allow porn, why this site is for my little pony, why is this site allow g5??? Let me know in this forum.

Before I go through the effort of setting up my favorite tags and watched and getting settled in here, is it safe to tell fag flag fliers to fuck off in the comments of their uploads? Is it permissible to tell them how they're delusional and will never be happy with themselves no matter how much they mutilate their bodies in pursuit of idiotic goals?

We've implemented a new, multi part script as a part of image Maintenace on PonerPics. The script has two functions. First, in updating existing "Derpibooru Imported" images on the website, and second, in importing more images.

First, the script will use the Derpibooru data dump to import new aliases and updates to tags from Derpibooru. Aliases that conflict with PonerPics aliases by creating infinite circular loops will be dissolved, and a report will be generated for staff to sort out the proper alias. The script will then update tag changes on existing "derpibooru imported images" to adjust to changes to tags on these images for their counterparts on Derpibooru in the time since their upload. These changes will be recorded in tag history. This does not affect changes to made to the tags on these images by users, and tags removed by users will remain removed. This script will also update legacy scores and favorites to reflect changes in the scores on the derpibooru counterparts. After the first massive update, this will run once per week.

The second function of the script is to import new images from derpibooru through the backend. These images will have the image number and upload dates of their derpibooru counterparts, and the scores and favorites recorded as "legacy scores." As essentially every one of these images has a "porter" counterpart, the script will automatically detect and merge these images, with any scores, favorites and comments transferring over. The image will have the tags of the derpibooru image, but the tag history of the porter image will transfer, and any user added tag will remain, and any user removed tag will remain removed. The merger process only effects porter images. This script uses the Derpibooru data dump, and so will run daily, but will not import images in real time. I am hopeful that it can be expanded to work in real time in the future, but that is as it is now. Catching up with delinquent imports will likely take some time; over a month at current estimations.

We will also be hiring new staff to help with aliases, duplicates, and general moderation. Further, more clearing of backlogged duplicates will take place once the import has caught up.

Post here for suggestions, questions, to report problems, or for general discussion. DM me or Megalith if you have any interest in joining staff.

What do you call it when someone makes images where their disgusting fetish is normal to all the characters, as if they could force people to accept it in reality, just by barraging us with images of it being accepted?

It's not queer coding, because queer coding is intended to be secret, not overwhelmingly blatant. It's not virtue signaling, since they're not talking about how great they are for supporting some oppressed people. It's not forced legitimacy, because these are legitimately disgusting fetishes. What do you call it?

Because you can set your avatar to explicitly NSFW images, and because tags aren't applied to avatars, if you have a filter set to eliminate explicit images you can still come across them with no real way to hide them. Will an additional tag check be incorporated which hides designated pictures even when set as an avatar? Though, if you use a non-pony-related avatar (which won't be on Ponerpics) that wouldn't work unless if the user has to put in tags.

Alternatively, moderation could just forbid using an explicit avatar. This is manually correcting the issue, and I feel if you really want to put hoers poon in your profile picture, you should be able to.

Ever want to roast someone or vent on them but don't want to risk getting blocked or banned? Well, fret not! This thread is a place where you can roast, dislike, vent or bash on them because they are imbeciles of the fandom! Regulars if known are preferred.
