This will be a topic dedicated to discussing updates to the site and getting feedback from users.

We have just moved to a new server computer with much more processing power and to Linux Mint 20 from Debian 10.

Mint was chosen because much of it can be configured without the terminal making things far more lovely to work with.

Currently the Forum is fitting in very snuggly on new setup, however other parts are having a few issues.

The Wiki:
The Wiki is having issues with the new setup and needs to be updated. I expect this to be done soon. But even afterward there may be some issues that may take a while to iron out.

The Gallery:
No doubt many of you have noticed we have 3 galleries now. Not ideal I know. The new Danbooru gallery will now be considered the main gallery. It is immensely powerful and has a lot of features that make managing stuff super easy!
The issue with Gelbooru was a lack of any updates to it. I originally chose it because it ran on PHP like the Wiki and Forum also Gelbooru's own site is immensely powerful and has lots of nice features. It claims to be open source, and at one point I was contributing to its Patreon. However there lies the problem. Gelbooru 0.1 has its source avaliable, not 0.2. For years they have teased releasing 0.2 but they just haven't. You can use 0.2 if you let them host it/subscribe to them, but that's not very useful for us as a small self-hosted site.
The ancient Piwigo gallery is being held together by duct-tape for the most part, it's more of a site for personal galleries than one for something like OS-tan art.

Email across all areas of the site still doesn't work, I am trying to make it work, but it's easier said than done.

Also a reminder that the Forum, Wiki and Gallery each have a different account.

proud of you! thank you so much for keeping all this alive. it can't be anything close to easy, especially since you have an actual factual grown-up job. :0

not asking for anything, but would it make things easier to slowly import the Piwigo gallery into the Danbooru one? ik we wouldn't be able to make personal galleries in that, which would be mildly annoying for anything that the uploader wanted to keep separate/private from the main, but as for everything else, we could just tag it all by author and establish a parent-child relationship between certain works. idk if this helps at all, it's just a thought.

thanks again! if there's anything we can do to help, please let us know. :3

It would be very helpful to move the images over from the Piwigo to the Danbooru. The Danbooru also has a private favorites list users can create.
Remember though with Piwigo to always get the original resolution image. It likes to resize things.


I also stream and take care of my sick cat so I have a busy schedule lmao.

I stream on Twitch.

Site updates will just be updates to the software that the site runs on.
