Several, but I’m not going to submit any more right now. The one I started this afternoon is having trouble so I’m going to wait until it’s complete before trying any others.

If this is really some bug, adding more alias requests to the queue will only compound the problem.

Like I said earlier, I’ll pick it up again during the day.

And, to clarify, I always do them one at a time, waiting until each is complete before starting the next. It usually never takes more than a minute or two at the most for them to complete. This is an unusual situation, but not unexpected.

It’s all actually remarkably normal. It’s just computers, tons of fan art, and a legacy core composed by dozens of volunteers, over 8 years. A dream, given form. Its goal: to preserve images of Trixie, by creating a place where humans and ponies can work out their differences peacefully. It’s a port of call – home away from home – for artists, fans, volunteers, and memers. Humans and ponies, a million five hundred thousand unique visitors a month reading and writing data from a warehouse of spinning metal . . . all alone in the night.

It can be a dangerous place, but it’s our last best hope for peace.

This is the story of the last of the Boorus. The year is 2019. The name of the place is Derpibooru.

UPDATE ON ALIASING

Over the next couple of weeks we will be moving to Philomena and there are a lot more jobs running that compete for the same resources that aliasing needs.

When an alias request is running and there are other jobs in the queue, I’ve seen jobs that used to complete in 5 or 10 minutes take hours to complete. In fact, I’ve got one running right now that has been going for almost half a day. It’s working, but the legacy site has a lot going on right now.

When we get to Philomena the new system will make all of this incredibly faster, so I will get caught up, but for the next couple of weeks aliasing will be happening much more slowly.

I’ll keep looking for opportunities to submit new alias jobs, but I want to be careful to run them one at a time. Having two or more aliasing jobs running at the same time really chugs the legacy site down.

Done – sorry for the delay. If there’s anything else I can help with please feel free to PM me.

That goes for any artist – a lot of the links I’m working through here are archival or legacy, the artists often aren’t even making art any more, and I’ve still got a week or so of those to catch up with and if your tag request is in that bunch, then you’re waiting for the same queue of work as the legacy tags are in.

So, if you’re an actual live artist using the site today and need anything changed feel free to send me a PM and I’ll update your tags right away.

that’s actually partially why I’ve been taking so long to catch up with these – I’m getting lots of PMs and reports that I’m working on that don’t show up here …

• artist:pon-ee → artist:StickFigureQueen – I don’t see any evidence for this. Can you please provide some supporting information?
• You’re providing links in the format "https://derpibooru.org/tags/artist-colon-pon-ee" – they should be in the format "/tags/artist-colon-pon-dash-ee", which is how the site actually encodes dashes inside names.

@Background Pony #58D8 – Done.

@TexasUberAlles – Done.

The last alias job has been running for 15 minutes and it looks like there’s a bunch of other jobs in the mix, so I’m going to back off until things get caught up.

Update 7 hours later: Wew! The jobs finally completed and the artist tags I was working on are ok and fixed :) Gonna sleep and will work on some more tomorrow.

@TexasUberAlles – Done. Updated the artists links as well.

@Barhandar – Done.

@Background Pony #1AF0 & @Background Pony #BE14 – Done.

@Damaged – Done, although I aliased into artist:sitaart because that is their current DA name.

@Background Pony #BE14 & @Background Pony #BE14 – Done. They’ve subsequently moved to → artist:roanoak-rp so I aliased everything there.

@Background Pony #1AF0 – Done.
