Help with copyright rules:
Posted on: 08/19/18 05:26PM
Hey all, I'm a little new to the site, but I wanted to make an account where I could post my decensoring work. I was just wondering what are the rules around this? The original work is someone else's (on the site), but it's been edited by myself. Is it okay to post it, I was planning on including the original artist name.

Thanks for your time.

As long as it isn't paysite art it should be fine. Other rules are in the ToS: gelbooru.com/tos.php

We have other users here who do the same.

Also, is it possible for others to change tags on your uploads? 'Cause a bunch have changed, and now I'm guessing people are changing them as it's not originally my work.

Any registered user may edit tags here.

A post may be locked if the tags are being vandalized but that's rare.

FYI, only the original artist gets an artist tag. We do not use artist tags for people who have edited an image.

Thanks all, I guess the last thing I was wondering was how to tag metadata (meta:***) doesn't seem to be working, and I'm wanting to tag for uncensored and third_party_edit.

Add "uncensored" and "third_party_edit" like you would any normal tag. You don't need to use tag type prefixes unless it's not an established tag.

"uncensored" automatically converts to "third-party_edit" when tagging now anyway so.

If it's an image from here that I've uncensored I just search for the parent post using iqdb.org by uploading the uncensored version to it to find the original and just copy/paste the tags from that image and remove any censor related tags (bar_censor, mosaic_censoring, pointless_censoring etc.) and change the "censored" tag to "un"censored on the new post.

Alot easier than typing third_party_edit_ all the time, at least for me, idk, plus, all of the tags are already there doing it this way.
