  • August 13th: Please remember to help us keep this place enjoyable for everyone. If you find bad behavior be sure to report them using the existing tools!
    • Not sure how to file a report? The Flag for Deletion tool confuses you? Want to check if someone reported it already, or if the user already got disciplined for it? Check here for help on all of that!
  • April 21st: Please don't use the 48h FFD reason if you wish to flag your own upload as an inferior version to something else. The custom reason is only there for the rare occasion that an upload needs to be deleted permanently, not just replaced with a better/different version.

  • February 26th: Ratte has removed a ton of old records recently. If you see you've been getting a record "again" please check first that it doesn't say the record has been removed or updated. If the subject uses either of those words your record was either deleted or has been downgraded from a negative to a neutral.

  • 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.

e621 is going down for scheduled maintenance on Friday, July 8.
  • Our hosting provider is moving all of Dragonfruit's servers to a new location at their datacenter. Downtime begins at 6 PM UTC (11AM GMT-7) and will likely last between 2 and 4 hours, though it could be longer depending on how things go. It's a big job with a lot of moving parts. Please keep an eye on the e621 Twitter account for more information and updates during the downtime.
