Where you saved the file from or even the filename it has shouldn’t matter. If the image data is the same then it’ll be detected as a duplicate. Now if you re-save it as a different file format or make any kind of changes to the image like changing its quality, changing a pixel, etc, then it will have a different hash. I also don’t see any duplicates in Twilight Sprinkle’s photo gallery.
Just throwing some numbers out there. We have 142,857 (21.6GB) images uploaded to the site. This doesn’t count any of the thumbnail versions of each image, or entry icons, user avatars, etc. There are 13,146 (3.68GB) images uploaded to the MLP entry and its submemes and each image is an average of 294KB in size. 9.2% of all the images on the site are pony images and they take up 17% of that 21.6GB. 42% of all pony images are pngs, and that’s why the file sizes are so large.
That’s why you can only edit your post within 30 minutes of creating it.
I’ve already deleted all duplicates and the image page number disappearance is a caching bug that should be fixed now.
There will be new tabs for that under /photos and /videos once there are enough thumbs.
Go do it. Let me know if you find any bugs.
It’s basically a way to generate a unique identifier for data. If two images share the same hash then they are practically guaranteed to contain the same data.
I don’t like associating photos with multiple entries because it would make spamming entries a lot easier. It would also be a big structural change to the current system and would require some downtime on photo uploads for all the old photos to be updated.
This has happened before so if anyone wants to reword the message to make it clearer I’ll change it.
The text is “You may only edit a post within 30 minutes of creating it.” It’s not telling you to wait 30 minutes.
Duplicate Photo Uploads
Duplicate Photo Uploads
Since all photos now have SHA-2 hashes stored with them, you should no longer be able to upload a photo to an entry if it’s already there. This is only within the scope of entries; you can upload a photo twice if you don’t specify an entry, but I’m not sure why you would do that anyway. Right now I’m working on making a page that lists all the duplicate photos for the admins so we can start getting rid of them. The MLP entry has 424 duplicates, with 22 of them being posted 3 times each.
All new photos now have SHA-2 hashes saved with them and I finished computing the hashes for all the old photos over the weekend. Right now I can see exactly which photos are duplicates and in the future you won’t be able to upload a photo to an entry if it’s already been uploaded.
I’ve been saving SHA-2 hashes for all photos over the weekend and will build some sort of duplicate detection system soon. There are still thousands of photos with missing hashes but all new uploaded photos already have them. This way duplicates will be found even if they have different file names. edit: If you’ve noticed the site being slow over the weekend, this is why.
There should be a “contact user” button above a user’s profile.
I’m not too concerned with character limit because titles will be spread across multiple lines as long as there are spaces. It’s only a problem when someone posts a long string of characters without any spaces.
That’s actually a good idea. If we do decide to temporarily disable photo uploads on the entry, you guys can use this thread to report reposts so they don’t get lost in the other thread.
There should be a remove button at the very top of the individual page for the video. Is it not showing up for you?
