@caramel It took me a bit to understand what you meant, I suddenly recalled now — on many images when you click the tag it has an established image and description before displaying the search results. I'm not in charge or have such an ability. That is up to Zizzy and co
I wonder if there's a way to get the aliases derpi uses. Or maybe even ask the admins for them, they haven't really acted hostile to alternatives (I bet you byte would be willing to help if it doesn't take a lot of effort). Species tags and the like can also be scraped from derpi easily enough using their tag search.
@Caramel Probably but I don't know about alias scraping. Actually now that I think about it maybe the database dumps have the aliases; wait, of course they do, why did I not think of that? While we're at it, the tags table also has the category right there, so you don't even need to scrape things from the website.
@Caramel To move over things retroactively, importing existing databases/archives would be best (especially since that'll also catch deleted images that have been archived). For new stuff, I think Philomena has recently had an API added specifically to let new uploads get immediately grabbed, which could be used to auto-upload anything that gets uploaded to derpibooru, should something like this be wanted.
Trying to fix my shitty tagging on previous uploads from last night. I just wanted to get images up to make sure the site is successful. Now that it looks like its a roaring success, I need to correct my fuckups.
Heya! I'm aware this site is completely new, and hate to bug you guys so early about it, but would I be able to claim a tag as my own?
One of my OCs, Cryptic, had other OCs with that tag on Derpibooru but yeah, just upload the art and tag it. You could also change the name if that works better. In the end, that's why I ended up doing so the first name was a nickname and the full name was different.
