Notoriously Divine Tagger - Consistently uploads images above and beyond the minimum tag requirements. And/or additionally, bringing over the original description from the source if the image has one. Does NOT apply to the uploader adding several to a dozen tags after originally uploading with minimum to bare tagging.

I miss the show so much
@Princess Celestia
I just realized my analyzing scripts aren’t going to understand multiple sources either.
The newest dump I have is from May 27th and that’s juuust before multiple sources were added.

Isn’t uploading scans of doujin a violation of site rule #1? I’ve noticed that while a leaked paid digital comic gets deleted eventually, the same doesn’t seem to apply when it comes to uploading scans of doujin. And it’s ironic that there is even a “do not re-post” statement in the upload (at the top left).

@TJacky
This may surprise you, but it’s perfectly possible no one fluent enough in such formal Japanese has read that particular corner of that particular image before this, or at least no such viewer has also been possessed of the scruples to report the comic in question for a rule #1 review. (For anyone interested, the text in question is ※本誌の全体または一部を無断複製、複写、転載 ネットオークション等に出品することを禁じます。)
Doujin aren’t necessarily paid content, so they’re not against the rule per se. If you know a specific doujin or any other comic is leaked paid content, please report it so staff can get notified and check the situation.

同人は正式な作品ではありません。In the actual Japanese market they have always been like garage kits. But, that’s just my experience from actually working in the printing biz in Tokyo (yes, that’s my smiling face on the cover of PRINT magazine.)
But in any case, I don’t believe a single page from a KOMOKET3 dojin is going to violate the 著作者人格権, and I’m pretty sure Yuuyami and Keidai would not be displeased to see their work still getting passed around, almost a decade later.
I mean, sure, maybe Shinji Inoue is going to make cosplay illegal for the sake of “Cool Japan”. I hope not, but until he does just remember to DAIKON V and オタク の ヴィデオ forever. Party on, dudes.

For the curious, this is what the Japanese mentioned by saby and Ciaran translates to:
  1. Unauthorized duplication, duplication, or reprinting of all or part of this magazine is prohibited.
  2. Doujin is not an official work.
  3. Moral rights of authors
  4. Otaku no Video (I believe this is an OVA or something from the early 90s).

Flails are fucking insane. Tried ’em once, forever noped out. They absolutely ruin your back. And this is coming from someone who enjoys 9 segment chain.
Anyway, you’re really in the wrong thread.
This thread is for serious questions, I think you meant to be here instead
@Blissful690
Good work! Also, for anyone curious, brace for 80’s anime. You can smell the Gainax already, can’t you?

I own plenty of physical doujins myself, and many of them have a “do not re-post” notice on the first or last page. Additionally, a significant number of doujins are sold at conventions like Comic Market for actual money.
Therefore, I estimate that at least three-quarters of the images under the doujin tag are in violation of rule #1. If no one reported those image is the problem, I’ll start reporting some of them now.
While I appreciate someone uploading scans to the internet to spread the content, I don’t believe derpibooru is the appropriate platform.

You are inferring a lot that I do not believe is justified from a boilerplate. If you want to appeal this, please come to Support so you and the team can actually chat. Please be prepared to discuss how it’s presence here is commercial use, and also to provide a link to where the circle is still offering this comic for sale.

Yeah, one of the signature features of doujin– INFURIATINGLY SO– is the fact that it’s usually of extremely limited availability and almost never gets reprinted; I’d say if an individual image has an explicit “do not repost or reprint” message associated with it it should be at least considered for removal, but otherwise (especially for something from the early years of the G4 fandom from circles which likely don’t exist anymore) it should be allowed to stay as a historical record that 99.999999% of the world’s eyes would never see otherwise.
I wish I’d realized sooner that Twitter has a Share feature for reposting to other social media sites, I’ve put a lot of art on Tumblr that’s very likely to be lost forever in its original form now that that worthless shitstain apartheid emerald manbaby has effectively destroyed the platform.

I have been wondering what is up with the derpiooru community Collab badge thread? So many people have not received their badges.
And I got a friend who even send a profile report with the other option about the badge?
Is it just too late for the badges? Tough some others got a badge after my friend left a message in the badge thread?

Hi, I’ve been wanting to change my artist tag from “munchingbro” to my new artist tag, “choppedraven” and i haven’t gotten any sort of change on it, i’ve put the link validation on my other social handle
is this just a thing that takes time? or is it not possible to change my artist tag?

Sorry, it can take time, and it’s been busy lately. I’m currently at work, but I’ve set a reminder for myself to check and make sure your request gets handled this weekend.
