FurryBooru

In category: Off Topic

http://furry.booru.org
What is this? Is this a known rip-off?
I know, it's another danbooru, but this one is extremely similar to e621.
They have almost as many images as we do, even the upload order is the same. compare the post frontpage.
I believe they copy our uploads, if not the server.
correct me if I'm wrong


And now for a comment that definitely adds to the topic:

...Interesting...


What...the...fuck? It's like a bizarro version of e6 where all the users who comment are named anonymous and all the uploaders are named furry.


Reported it for failing to follow booru's rules :/

The owner of the booru.org domain. http://booru.org/faq

What rules did it break?

Examples of unacceptable content
"Loli or Toddlercon: Any form of loli or toddlercon (very young drawn childeren)" http://booru.org/tos

Okay... but their TOS seems to state that they're following this rule.

http://furry.booru.org/index.php?page=forum&s=view&id=1

I haven't actually looked through the site, though. I guess it's up to the domain then.

That's the only thing I could find that broke the booru's TOS... unless Aurali is thinking of some other rule they're breaking.

Don't get me wrong, I don't really see what the point of FurryBooru is, and I don't want some knock-off leeching off of e621.

But it doesn't look like they've done anything technically wrong.

Ok, yep, this is child porn. And we already have e621, so furrybooru is redundant.


And this is any of our business...why? Seems OP just wanted to stir up some drama, or somesuch.

I see no relation to e621 here. http://furry.booru.org != http://www.e621.net

What's your interest? Why do you care if they have the same pictures e6 does? News Flash: all the art on e6 comes from somewhere that is not e6. There is very little if any original content on e6.


yeah they are diretly leeching from us... tags and all,

look at my not so obvious tag edit they copied. no worries, It's pretty easy to block.

As I recall this is one of the sites that sprung up to help the community when it looked like e6 was going to be closed forever after the last owners shut it down. Now I'm a huge fan of e6, unless you count tumblr its just about the only furry site I go to on a regular basis. But if you're attacking or trying to shut down other sites *just because they're similar or share a lot of content* then you're not acting rationally. Put down the pitchforks and actually think about this. -Do you really want to have all your eggs in one basket? The more copies of this content there are out there, the longer and more likely it is to survive. Isn't that one of the big justifications for e6- preserving and promoting artists work even if they don't know about it/give consent? Trying to say "No, mine!" about the concept (not original) and content (definitely not original) of e6 not only goes against everything this site stands for, it doesn't even make any sense.

Stuff.

Aurali didn't report it for having similar content. They were using the same exact content taken directly from e621. It's fine if they want to be another furry image board, but they have to actually contribute something at least a little different from what's already available.

Well she reported them for something else which was a very valid complaint. But blocking content going out from e6 to others sites and/or attacking, putting down or attempting to find ways to sabotage other websites just for taking a lot of content from e6** is still silly, and misquoting me/misrepresenting or interpreting what I was saying doesn't change that.

**And I'm not saying that's not what Aurali did with the pic(s) she reported that could just be that she saw it/them and naturally felt she should report it. Only that a general mob/video game console style protective fan turn appeared to be starting to be expressed in the threads posts. And trying to block outgoing content from a site which has little or no original content and purportedly aims to "preserve" what it does have makes less sense.


^ i don't think you get it. from what i understand they have a bot that copies every change on this site to that site.

I get that. What I don't understand is how having an extra copy of the site in case this one goes down (that we don't have to pay for) is a bad thing. Unless it's possibly harming our bandwidth or something?


I actually knew about that site a while ago when I was searching google for work by the artist Buhshid and found an image I'd uploaded on here a long time back on that site. I just figure it was a back up booru that e621 had made. :/

...So?

...So? You think e6 has a monopoly on being a furry image-dump site?

i guess what bugs me is it not mentioning it anywhere on the site, and how the site has like three times the ads as e6, but WAY more flashy. seems like the site was just put up to make money, by copying some other site.


Okay I don't even know what happened to my post.

That doesn't even make any sense. Why does this bother you so severely that you've got to complain about it? Not all sites are owned by someone who makes a business in selling dragon dildos. Ads = revenue = money to support the site. Someone out there isn't makin' LOADSA MONEY by 'ripping off' your precious e621. I just don't see the vested interest you have. Is it the latent 'poser' fear today's society has?


i meant in combination. the ads by itself doesn't bother me. (please forgive me as i am not very talented at typing what i mean to say) if i was the owner of e6, it would make me pretty mad that someones using a bot to copy my sites content, and host it on a free URL.


I think FurryBooru is a cool guy. Eh provides redundancy(e621 unavailable/deleted posts/etc.) and doesn't afraid anything.

Actually, I was on the site earlier and I'm pretty sure I saw content that hadn't been posted here. They are not only bot-copying e621's posts, but somebody IS manually uploading some stuff. If you'll look back a few days, you'll see that there's a break in the comparison between sites where FurryBooru uploaded some stuff that wasn't posted at the same time here.

EDIT: Aaaand by "a few days" I meant a day or two.

If it sucks e6's bandwidth, then it needs to be nuked with the strenght of a thousand fiery suns.

I totally agree to this, but if it DOES suck any noticeable amount of bandwidth, then wouldn't it have been noticed sooner?

the difference is that it leeches off of us, and I'm working on counter measures.

And e621 "leeches" off furaffinity by manually uploads. Should they take counter measures to?

It does not consume more b/w then any user who looks at pictures on e621 daily.
