The /tg/ booru just passed 6000 images.

What's a booru?

It's basically a tag based image archive. You might have heard of danbooru or gelbooru, but until recently we haven't had a booru for /tg/ related images.

/tg/ related?

Basically anything you'd save while browsing /tg/ is welcome on the booru. You have to manually upload your images and tag them, but all the effort now will pay off later when we have a cool booru to use.

Registering an account doesn't require any verification, so please don't make a fuss about it.

How do I upload?

Register an account and go here http://grognard.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=add
or alternatively click the add link at the bottom of the posts page.

There is also a mass uploader located here http://www.i-forge.net/imageboards/mass-upload/
Please use it responsibly. Either rename your files like it suggests when you mass upload or force tag it.

But I don't have anything to upload.

No worries, in that case you can tag. Any image with less than 5 tags gets the tagme tag and could really use everyones help in adding more tags.


Tagging is easy. At the bottom of an image there is an edit link and from there you can change the tags. If someone has red hair then you'd use the red_hair tag or if it's an artist you recognize you can tag their name. Remember to remove the tagme tag when an image is sufficiently tagged.

Why don't we just use another booru?

There is no other booru that covers all /tg/ related images. Miniatures, character art, western art accepted, drawfag, larp, homebrew, screenshots, photographs, nsfw images. Anything is cool.

There is also an irc channel. #/tg/booru on rizon.net

>> No.12913124

We have green text for formatting. You'd do well to make use of it.

Also, the question your post doesn't answer:
>why do we need a booru in the first place?

>> No.12913148

We don't need one. It's for archival purposes. A directory of /tg/-related images is useful as hell.

For the love of Raptor Jesus, TAG YOUR PICTURES!

TAG THE FUCK OUT OF THEM! Tag everything. Even small things about the picture. Pay attention the the background and the focus of the picture.

So what's your point. Do you not want us to have a booru. Why are you even posting in the thread if you're not a fan of the idea.

The /tg/booru isn't going to end image dumps. The only thing that will happen is maybe someone uses the booru instead to find the image they want instead of making an image request thread. Dumps will still happen and shit posters will still complain about anything and everything.

And honestly the janitor isn't going to start deleting image dump threads because we have a booru.

We do not have a lot of larpers. Larp threads are something like one in two hundred. Even in those threads, chainmail is extremely rare. Probably because it's time-intensive to make and not better than plate in most systems.

>I will reiterate: just because YOU don't bother with the non-Warhammer threads does not mean /tg/ is nothing but Warhammer threads.
Well, let's look at the things on the front page right now.
1. the sticky
2. this thread
3. 40k thread
4. mainstream setting (Harry Potter, in this case)
5. vidya thread
6. homebrew setting
7. meta thread
8. DM advice
9. Yu-Gi-Oh
10. 40k thread

Except for the yu-gi-oh, I'd say this is pretty typical. Now, which of these have characters that are iconic enough to be represented in the manner we are discussing?

I never once said that I don't want you to have a booru (I even said that I might use it) and I also agreed that I like your and-and mentality. My only point (and it is a minor one) is that this might (note that I said might not will) have an impact on people's attitudes towards imagedumps and I would find that a shame since I like them more than anything else on /tg/.

Also I can post in any thread I like and I don't have to agree with the general mentality to do so. Additionally it is rather ironic that you ask me to ignore stuff I don't like while you seem to have a hard time doing so yourself.

We need standards. If we don't have standards for tagging, we might as well leave them tagless.

Add the tag. If it's listed on the side with a number greater than 1, it was already a tag. If not, then it's a tag now.

>> No.12914407

well the reason tags exist is for searching

as long as the tag in question DOES refer to the picture and doesn't conflict with some other use of the tag (can't use 'magic' for 'mtg', for instance, because magic is its own thing), then it can't hurt to put it on. However, something like "hackers_(movie)" would probably never get searched for so whatever on that.

Fuck you Captcha, fuck you.

>> No.12914533

Nobody is debating the benefits of anonymity. At least I hope not. The only reason the Booru requires any kind of registration is because we simply don't have the option to open things up to non registered visitors. Its something the host has blocked.

As for the argument about 40k, I think I'm going to stay out of that hatchet fight. my official stance will be 40k is A-OK.

Thats exactly why I created it in the first place. I was getting frustrated looking for a certain picture for a character I was making in an online game and wondered why we never got around to making an online repository of character portraits. Then a few weeks later I was looking for that "I'm sad" comic that we have floating around. This is simply a place to put things that are commonly used around here. Its not meant to replace huge image dumps and character portrait threads which I love, only meant to be an organized way to store them.

The issue of nerd porn is a tentative yes, Its hard to know where to draw the line on this and how far exactly to go, but as long as it doesn't violate the hosts ToS then... start uploading your Thri-Keen porn I guess? I'm working on a list of rules and guidelines that will support this.

I would hope that the only one who is tripfagging in any thread about this is me, and only me because you need someone to yell at if something goes wrong or you have a grievance you need to throw my way.

It might be that my definition of weeaboo is not very encompassing. Hell even Maido-rpg isn't necessarily weeaboo to me as it provides an interesting view into our Japanese equivalent's mindset. It's mostly a silly game and that's it.
To me a weeaboo would be somebody insisting we should keep the loli catgirls because a "booru" is an inherently Japanese idea and shouldn't be adapted to our preferences and needs because that would ruin its Japanese purity. It's like somebody arguing that books should only be printed in Chinese (who knows when they discovered it) or German/Latin (Hello Mr Gutenberg.) because it was the Chinese/Germans who invented it. So weeaboo has very little to do with content and more with the people. To me at least.

Shit, and here I am hitting reload every time I don't like an umlaut on a letter.

Just have charmap open while browsing 4chan. Go to Times New Roman and most of her entire lexicon of incomprehensible characters are right there.

Is it wrong to be offended that a lot of the mechs are tagged as mecha?

So can we post ANIME fantasy images or would that be better left on danbooru

>> No.12927056

is mecha a bad tag?

>> No.12927057

"Mech" is just "mecha" with the a taken off the end so it doesn't sound as weeaboo.

>> No.12927067

if it's /tg/ then yes, you can

thanks for the new background BTW

>> No.12927070

Mech is short for Battlemech.

>> No.12927078

And where do you think THAT term came from?

It's a single fucking letter, what difference does it make?

>> No.12927080

western and eastern art are both welcome. As long as it's /tg/ related you can post anything

>> No.12927145

Yes. Mechs are mecha. Should be obvious by the name.

The term certainly isn't used anywhere outside BattleTech, right?

>> No.12927167

Most western literature that isnt created in a Japanese style uses the word mech.

>> No.12927175

luckily we have aliases

>> No.12927182

My point exactly. Battlemech is a setting-specific term, though. Saying "mech" is just short for "Battlemech" makes little sense.

>> No.12927184

And the difference is an a.

And >>12927175 so it doesn't even matter.

>> No.12927281

remember guys to get rid of the tagme tag after you tag a picture.

well I think "mech" came from "mechanical" which goes along with "fighting machine"

>> No.12927579


It's doesn't matter what you can say into it. What matters is what the people mean with that word

>> No.12929952

wow over 7300 images.

>> No.12930022

what people mean is the same fucking thing.

>> No.12930029

but over half of them are tagme.

>> No.12930224

Yup, no one said making a booru would be easy. Time to get tagging.

>> No.12930582

OTOH, not all tagme are really tagless, but just a bit incomplete on the tagging.

Stop nagging, start tagging!

These magic cards are great.

I can't tell if that's sarcasm or not.

>> No.12930861

I plan to do a bunch of different cards from different card games as soon as I find the pictures of scans and stuff. its mostly for quick reference.

Only problem with loading the magic cards is for cards that repeat in later sets. it automatically checks for duplicate cards so I don't know if I can upload beta or even if I should.

>> No.12930863

So it looks like we're putting every single magic card on the booru. That's cool, I guess.

>> No.12930928

I dunno. Isn't the Gatherer in the WotC webpage enough?

>> No.12930931

Well I figure they all have art on the cards too. People can tag that stuff too.

>> No.12930950

Cause nothing encourages people to tag images like having to sift through thousands of images from a game they don't play and don't really know anything about.

>> No.12930964

I think only custom cards should be put in the database, there's already multiple MtG sites that have a database of every single official card, as well as errata/prices/etc. It's just redundant.

>> No.12930988

Well, dude, lots of people here do understand, so just look other tagless pics and help where you can actually give a hand.

The 4k tagmes aren't all MtG cards, you know?

>> No.12931052

Why even have MtG cards here when other sites have more comprehensive and better databases of MtG cards already? There's nothing to gain from hosting them here, if people want to look up magic cards or just browse they'll go to the Gatherer, not /tg/booru.

>> No.12931067

it's probably less about the cards and more about the card art

>> No.12931188

>only three
Well, no character art for most of our self inserts, then.

>> No.12931702

Yeah. Broken 7500 images.
