Just did /random male penis solo and it gave me a random SFW picture of a dragon...

Edit: Did it again, and it got the male and penis part, but the solo part failed.

The "random" command uses SFW and NSFW images, If you only want to see NSFW images just add rating:e to your tags :)

But wouldn't that count towards the 6-tag search limit? Will there ever be an SFW/NSFW switch? (Like /rating s or rating:e?)

Updated by anonymous

^ Well, I guess the program could keep on polling e621's randomizer until it returns an appropriately-rated image. That would provide the full 6 tags, but would be rather impolite to e621 IMO (and of course would introduce delays)

Is English your second language? I wouldn't expect that particular mix up ("Safe Work For", "Not Safe Work For" rather than "Safe For Work" / "Not Safe For Work") otherwise.

Thought I should mention it because SWF is a file format supported by e621, and might be considered an image, so it's potentially confusing to talk about 'SWF images'.

Updated by anonymous

This is actually pretty amazing. It's surprisingly useful, good job mate! You may want to reduce the polling speed for the sake of E6's servers :)

Updated by anonymous

The bot is waiting 8 seconds before checking another user, it is also now running 24/7 so there shoudln't be any downtime anymore :)

I'll take a look into it to bypass the rating tag :P

Yes, english is my second langauge, sorry if there are some things that are not understandable :D

New Update arrived:

It's now even more stable, and also a blacklist has appered!
Use /blacklist to see a small Tutorial on how to use it.

Updated by anonymous

Small reminder:

The blacklist is currently disabled, as I'm currently trying to fix an error that crashes the bot.

Updated by anonymous

Really cool and useful bot you made there :)

Is there any chance that we also could get group support? I really would love to add this bot to one of my groups.

Thanks :P

And yes :) I am currently in the works of rewriting the bot compleatly, since I've never worked with Groups it will take a little while (because of permissions and stuff), but I'll try my best ;)

Updated by anonymous

I've once again compleatly rewritten the Bot.

It is now using Buttons! And, the Blacklist finally works flawlessly!
The blacklist works like the "Tag Agents", just add a Blacklist Agent, and you won't get any images containing the tag.

And please excuse me if you find any miss-spells since i'm not a native english talker :x

Updated by anonymous

I'm trying this out since I actually found Telegram Desktop (Windows, Mac, Linux ) this time around. It required my phone number, but Telegram's FAQ soothed my misgivings.

Updated by anonymous

Thank You for the amazing feedback!

If there is anything You don't understand, don't hesitate on asking again, since I am not a native english speaker it's harder for me :P

Updated by anonymous

I've encountered another bug which is already fixed.

If you now list your tags, and use "score:<" or "score:>", you will see "score:(greater-than)" or "score:(less-than)", but it wont affect the search.

Otherwise the bot would crash, and the formatting would be wrong.

Updated by anonymous

Telegram is experiencing a major connection problem in my area (Europe).
If the bot doesn't respond it's probably because the Telegram API is down.

Updated by anonymous

Update has been published. The menu has been cleaned up.

Extras and Settings will be available in the next update.

Not sure if this bot is still being updated, but if it is I have a small feature request.
Currently the bot only supplies a link to the full rez in this format:
https://static1.e621.net/data/8e/70/8e701de3b99403406876b76e7eec4e5e.png
Could you make it also add a link to the e621 page as well?
This format:
https://e621.net/post/show/1421456
If you can then thanks you rock! If not, oh well not a huge deal.

Yup, it is still being updated and running :P

I have planned to add settings for users so, sure I can do that :P
Thank you for your feature request :3

I would be interested in using this, but the rate at which it's doing searches seems high. I don't want to put that much extra load on the servers, particularly because the tags that I'd use this for are the tags that rarely ever get posts in them.

I'd be happier if I could set it to do a once-a-day search, perhaps.

The bot doesn't take more server stress on the site of e621, it's currently doing one request per second, at the moment it takes about an hour to go through the database. I may need to rethink my current solution if the bot gets even bigger :D

So no worries, you can use it :P

P.S. If you just want to keep up to date with posts that have changed since a specific point, you can do so by using the change field that is on every post.

The search syntax for this is change:>14170036 order:change No, I don't know why this isn't documented, I'll make sure to fix that soon.

This means that you never have to run any tag searches at all, and you can do all of the filtering on your end, which would be much appreciated, not to mention that if you request that every minute, you're still giving people almost instant results. I'd much prefer that over the current system or running searches once a second forever. It's really easy to say that your bot doesn't cause stress on the servers even though it actually accounts for about 3% of all searches per day, which is quite significant for a single party.

Updated by anonymous

I'll take a look at the change syntax. 3% is quite a lot :o

Hopefully it didn't cause any problems on the server side :x
And I already sort of started internal tag management so it doesn't load e621 up so much. The change prefix definately helps so a huge thanks for that :P

I will try to implement that as quick as possible, because as you've already said: it also benefits the users of the bot^^

Added a new Menu, and a Favourite function, if you like an image and you want to save it, just fav it!

How do you actually add tags though? Just copy and paste the link or?

I just found out that something went wrong in the update, seems like new users can't be added anymore. Normally you add the tags just by naming them, without the link.

Since the bot didn't add you to the db it probably also didn't respond. (Will fix this shortly)

EDIT:

Bug fixed, You can now use the Bot. Just type /start again.

Alrighty, Thank you!

Update

Users that are not using the bot will be notified after 90 days of inactivity.

When that happens the user has 14 days to respond to the bot, otherwise the account and all data will be removed from the database.

This is to prevent the bot from slow down because of inactive users.

Updated by anonymous

WebM's are now being converted to mp4, so you can directly enjoy your dose of art in a nice quality directly on telegram :3

Updated by anonymous

Just pushed another update.

Patrons are being ignored on the 90 day afk checkup.

Image reverse search is now available, just send the bot an image and it will try to find it here on e621. (Using iqdb.harry.lu)

Updated by anonymous

The bot has been partially updated to the new api.

Everything "should" work, I'll still have to do some cleanup tho!
