Some clarification about the previous news post regarding the posting of entire webcomics: Posting standard comics/collections/etc is perfectly fine (assuming it adheres to our Avoid Posting list). What we DON'T want is the entirety of webcomics, such as TwoKinds, Better Days, Original Life, and so on. A particularly good page every now and then is fine, but otherwise we'd very much prefer that you visit the webcomic's site itself.

We just updated e621 with a ton of new features! View the changelog here. There's a user setting to turn off the stats bar under thumbnails if you'd prefer not to see them, too.

Remember folks, E621 was not designed to feature entire webcomic rips, so please refrain from posting them. Posting an occasional highlight is fine, but anything more than that is not likely to pass approval.

Hey folks,

Sorry for the downtime on Friday 13th; I swear that ghosts did it, and that it had nothing to do with permissions issues on a code update. Notice any more problems? Drop an email to [email protected] explaining the issue!

Thanks - Varka

Dear artists: Do you have an account here? would you like to show prices for your art? ask an admin and we'll get that set up for you!

Hey guys, keep in mind that "not furry" is NOT a valid reason to flag an image for deletion, nor are personal opinions. Follow the FFD guidelines here and you'll do just fine!

And remember folks; always read the rules. Ignorance is not an excuse for breaking them, and when in doubt, use some common sense when posting, tagging, and commenting!

Flagging an image for the reasons:Not Furry, or any personal opinion on them, is grounds for punishment.

Addendum; this should be very obvious by this point in E621's life, but clearly it's not. As such, its now up here, so no one has any excuses to ignore it and pretend they didn't know. E621 operates under a Tag What You See, not what you Know policy.

We've added a couple new blacklist options to the user settings (right under the blacklist box), make sure you check them out!
Remember: standard posting guidelines still apply. Don't upload tiny pics just to use as avatars, they will be deleted.

Also, if you're looking to increase your tag-edit count and help us out, don't forget that you can now search for images by the number of tags they have! For example, tagcount:3. And ranges work too: tagcount:1..5.

Sorry for the ~6hrs of downtime last night, folks - something locked up in the e621 server and thanks to the DDoS this weekend we were unable to receive notifications of downtime. We're investigating the cause, and have fixed notifications again. Please bear with us <3

Hey folks -

The intermittent downtime today is being caused by a neighbouring server experiencing a large DDoS attack (about 3-4Gbps). We're taking steps with our upstream to mitigate it, and we hope to have the site stable soon.

Thanks for being patient!

Apologies everyone for the recent poor site performance / occasional 500 error pages; we've investigated and have (hopefully) fixed the source of the problem (we needed to shuffle some memory around).

Let us know if you have any more site performance issues using our contact page!

Well, that was a joke well played, and to those who were really bothered by it. Did you really miss the button on the top of the screen that fixed it for you? Jeeze guys I wouldn't leave you hanging. But I'm glad most of you had fun <3 and As tradition I leave it on for longer than I should cause I have a job.. so yay!
Anyhow, more updates to come! Keep tuned, it's a big one.

Hey guys, we don't expect everyone to get along here, but being dicks to each other isn't going to be tolerated. Please try to keep things fun and lighthearted. It would also be a good idea to not bash and insult artists in the comments of images. Believe it or not, they DO see those comments, and they often result in takedown requests.

Hey guys! One of our moderators (Ratte) is in the running to win a $20,000 scholarship for college, but she could use our help. We would be very grateful if you could spare a few minutes to support one of our own. Please see Ratte's profile and story here, and if you feel compelled to help her after reading it, just click that "vote" button on the page (the button will say "Voted" after your vote has been submitted successfully). :) Thanks!

Dear Artists: We are rebuilding the artist section to include more tools for artists, if you don't mind please PM Aurali on the site and ask her what you are looking for in terms of tools for your own art. Thank you <3
