We now have a Discord server, come talk to us!

  • July 3rd: Because it has become relevant again: We do not have an official facebook page. If you find a page that pretends to be affiliated with e621.net be aware that it's fake.
    • If you wish to contact us for anything please be sure to use one of our official channels as outlined on our Contact page.
  • June 22nd: We will be updating our tags dickgirl and cuntboy to be less vulgar. There won't be any changes to the current use of those tags, but there will be a short time window where some aliases and implications won't work as we update everything. For further details please see this thread.

  • May 14th: We're aware of connection issues to our page. These issues are localized to the french ISP "Free", and hopefully they are working to fix the routing issues soon. This is not something we can help with or affect in any way. If you want a workaround try using a VPN in the meantime.

  • November 13th: We had an outage earlier due to a brownout at our host's datacenter, which then caused our servers to fail booting up. After we finally solved that issue we decided to directly perform our scheduled maintenance, which is also finished now. Thank you all for your patience!

Site Maintenance: Tuesday, November 13

One week from today e621 will be going down for prolonged server maintenance.

Downtime will begin at 15:00 UTC (that's 08:00 MST/GMT-7, local server time) and will last approximately six hours.

We're going to be performing a wide array of long overdue hardware and software upgrades - and doing it all at once so no further prolonged downtime is needed for a while.

  • October 19th: We recently added the ability to report posts to help ensure admin attention can be better directed to submissions that require them. See here for more details.
  • October 18th: Since it has come up recently: Please do not tag Pokémon or Digimon as their real world counterparts, but only as the family. Eg persian is not a cat but a feline, renamon is not a fox but a canine, etc.
    • This is purely to ensure that actual "real" animals can be found without having all those fantasy animals show up as well.
