Do not upload deleted content. Deleted content can be undeleted. Even if there is a public version, that public version might not be the same quality as the deleted post, and if that's the case you can upload the publicly released vers

Now that you mention it, the released pics are a lower resolution than the ones uploaded here and now deleted.

Also one of those 5 pics is still up. It's the superior resolution, leaked version instead of the smaller, publicly-released version too, tho the source lists the latter which I guess is why the mods mistakenly didn't delete it. The flagging system doesn't let me convey this information. Should I report it or what?

The flagging system has the option

Paysite, commercial, or subscription content
We do not host paysite or commercial content of any kind. This includes Patreon leaks, reposts from piracy websites, and so on.

Which is applicable

Yeah but it doesn't let me explain that the pic in question is the bigger, unreleased version of the smllaer, released pics in the source, so I fear I could get punished for false-flagging.

Ah what the hell, I'm doing it anyway.

None of the flag reasons have an extra reason field anymore. You aren't going to get punished for making a false flag in good faith.

IIRC, only the now-removed "uploaded in the last 48 hours" had a reason field. All the others never had one, though I kinda wish they did. Every flag option has a chance to need explaining, and there's no way to do that except to make a comment on the post (which can be a problem if the post already has and gets more comments, burying your reason), which outs you as having flagged it (despite the flagger name being hidden from normal users everywhere else).

Other reasons used to have text fields, but they were removed due to abuse or misuse
The 48 hour reason was removed, due to abuse, misuse, and a lack of need

Don't know if it's a bug, but I don't see it listed in the intentional changes. A user's "level" isn't shown on posts anymore (e.g. previously Millcore would be shown with an Admin label, Mairo would have a Janitor label, etc). Now it just shows the user name without any label, and the only way to see it is by going to the user's profile.

Also, when I click on Reply in a given forum post, it scrolls up to the top of the page with no reply box visible. I have to click on the Reply>> at the bottom of the page to get the reply box open, and it will have the desired post quoted already.

yeah that happens to me still

Anyone else getting error messages when adding posts to sets?

Oh it's not me then!
I get

wildcard searches only pick up the most populous tags, I think it's the top 20 or something.

Huh, I see
Edit: It's top 40.

Hi, I'm trying to upload the next page of pool #33325, but it keeps giving me "Error: Unknown error! undefined".

Yeah I'm getting that exact error trying to upload some of my work too. Thought it was a file issue but seems not.

It looks like only uploads are affected. I just did an experimental tag edit and it worked fine.

Same issue for when uploading normally. PC/Chrome and IOS/safari

Can’t open posts at all, only green box that reads (updading posts one pending) that then turns into red with error. Any ideas why?

Sounds like you've accidentally changed your mode. On desktop, change the dropdown box beneath search bar and change the "Mode" heading to "View".

If you're on mobile you'll need to scroll to the very bottom of the page

An unexpected error occurred message appears when trying to view profile or fix tags. Maybe a bug?

Been stuck with this for a couple hours now.

Right 1/4 of the screen (desktop pc, Firefox) is un-clickable. It's like there's an invisible box or something over all the posts when I search, and it persists inside a post. It's blocking me from adjusting the volume in animations.

I can clear my cache and it'll fix it for 1-3 pages, but shortly after that it breaks again. This is the only site I've found with the issue, and talking with a friend in discord, sounds like he's run into this bug a few times as well.

try opening in a safemode Firefox window, might be one of your plugins or userscripts acting up. also try right-clicking the invisible box and using inspect element, that might help determine what it actually is.

Bug with Date:Today Search Query

There's a bug with the Date:Today search query that i noticed
When I'm logged into E621 my timezone is set GMT+10:00. (my local time zone)
anyway, after around midnight/1am using Date:today returns nothing.

Pretty sure this is because the search query wants to use the users' time zone but because the database has it's own time zone it can't return something that's "in the future"

again not that big of a deal but thought i should post it here anyway

while editing tags i noticed after deleting one tag the system would either add then remove OR remove two other unrelated tags

example post #2838385 i only removed pubic_trail and added happy_trail but leather_straps(plural) were removed and replaced with leather_strap(singular) and video_games was removed entirely

this happened a few other times with pubic_trail editing

those are tags that were added to the post automatically when an implication/alias was applied. in the edit history these changes just get appended to the next edit made, despite actually having been applied to the post way back when the alias/implication request was accepted.

so those tag were implied by the previous editor, got stuck and my editing just jostled the machine to finish

No, it was already finished. If you had looked at the list of tags on the post before submitting your changes, you would have seen that the video_games tag was not present.

The site doesn't generate new entries in the post history for automatically-applied changes because it would be too expensive, especially for huge mass changes like the removal of the video_games tag. Just because a change doesn't appear in the history doesn't mean it hasn't been made.

Not exactly a bug report but a question
Was there a recent change which made it so that blacklisted posts no longer have a blacklisted placeholder and instead will not show up at all while searching?

It's been that way for years now

I don't exactly know if this is a bug or if this is just because of e621's security but I keep getting the damn "not a bot confirmation" over and over again it is starting to get annoying, why is it happening so much?

My blacklist won't save. Every time I add something and then go to a different part of the site, i.e comments, my account page or just anywhere off of general, when I come back the thing I added isn't there. I'm relatively new here, so a little help would be appreciated!

Y'all it seems to be working now, so never mind!

I noticed a while back that there seems to be an issue with the front page search bar on the mobile site. I thought it was a fairly obvious bug, but since I haven't found any existing mention of it I figured I'd bring it up.
Basically: if you're entering a long search query, using the drop-down to complete a search term which would cause the bar to scroll causes the whole page layout to shift to the left. Not ideal, since it usually leaves half the search bar hidden off the side of the screen.
Has anyone else noticed this? I've been getting it consistently on the Google Chrome app, across multiple phones and Android updates. This only happens on the front page, on any page of results it works as normal.

It got replaced , and the replacer is now technically the uploader

Huh, the tag history still says I'm the original uploader tho. It's weird that the tag history of a replaced post would preserve the original uploader yet not show the post among those uploaded by them, seems like a blind spot in the database ontology.

I'd imagine that was left alone so we have some record of who originally uploaded the post, since there's really no other record of it

Been using this site for years and now all of the sudden I'm getting the "e621 validation failed user have reached hourly limit for this action" error when trying to upvote anything. Is something going wrong?

No, you've just hit the 10 upvotes per hour limit. It's surprising you haven't hit it sooner Nope that's just for comments. Though there's a 3000 upvotes per hour limit on posts

I have my posts per page set to 150, but it's only showing me 22 posts per page and the amount shrinks when I add tags to the blacklist (not that I even want 150, I just did that because it wasn't showing me nearly as much as what it was set on)... Why is this happening?

Posts you blacklist are hidden from the page after it's loaded, more posts aren't put back into their place

Here's something extremely concerning: The password reset system is broken and does not properly assign newly entered passwords.
I just now lost "wrp" to this bug, along with "wrp2" to determine that 1) The moment a reset request is sent the password is wiped, even if no other action is taken, meaning you in fact cannot ignore the email if you did not make the request, and 2) The new password is just not assigned, which I can confirm after repeated tries.

Everything seems to work as expected, if the password being wiped on request is intentional, right up to the moment you try to log in, including receiving the green pop up saying that the password was successfully reset. After that the account is permanently inaccessible.
Also I may have lost a third account to this bug a handful of months ago, but that's been long enough ago now that I don't remember if it was the same problem or if I ever had it linked to my email to begin with.

Addtl. note: When I submitted this post, I had been logged out of "wrp1", and I guess had a similar problem where the password I had just set in account creation suddenly didn't work. After some fumbling around to make another account I was able to get back into this one, but only on mobile. I still can't access it on desktop. I'm not gonna fuck with it anymore until after I submit this, so further details on that might not come.

This plainly isn't true, I can still login just fine after requesting a password reset.
Even looking at the code, you can see at no point is the current password wiped when a request is made.
https://github.com/e621ng/e621ng/blob/master/app/controllers/maintenance/user/password_resets_controller.rb#L8-L14
https://github.com/e621ng/e621ng/blob/master/app/models/user_password_reset_nonce.rb#L10-L14

It creates a PasswordResetNonce, then deliver_notice gets called. That's the end of the execution here.

So yeah, disregard that. I still don't know what the hell happened that I could send a reset request and the password just stop working, or that I get locked out of my account only on desktop, but it all seems to work fine now after sleeping on it.
There's still some kind of bug here obviously, and new passwords I tried to set via the reset request still didn't take, but it's not as serious as it seemed.

how come blacklist not working right, most the "This post is pending approval.thing" show blacklist i block but still show it anyway

Re-enable your blacklist if you have it disabled

Order:comment (not comment_bumped) seems to be slightly broken, some comments seem to be slipping through the cracks

'voted:anything' and 'votedup:anything' aren't updating anymore; anything new I vote on doesn't show up in those searches. can anyone else confirm?

It doesn't show in the order you voted the post, it just shows you posts which you've voted, in order of id
(Yes I tried it and didn't have any problems)

I had this problem for the past few hours, and it's only now that it fixes itself xP

also:

that's the default behavior actually (like with favorites), think you might've got your words mixed up

For some reason, no matter what browser I use, the thumbnails for posts uploaded with the parent/child structure won't display on Windows 11. Just to double check, I booted up my old laptop running Windows 10, and it displayed it immediately, both with and without the re621 userscript running. Dunno what changed with the OS that's causing this, but it's the only thread connecting it. Edit: I am a dumbass, disregard my idiocy

might be something weird with your graphics card, have you tried rebooting?

It turns out I'm a dumbass, I just needed to click "show" on it, apparently hidden is the default -_-
