help:blacklists

Blacklisting is a way for users to hide posts that contain tags they don't want to see, such as guro (extreme graphic violence), scat (feces), yaoi (sexual activity between males), and spoilers.

Location

To edit your blacklist, navigate to My Account >> Settings >> Basic Settings. Type in the tags you don't want to see in the Blacklisted Tags box.

Examples

Simple
yaoi
nude
male_focus

This will hide all posts that are tagged with yaoi, nude, or male focus

Complex
nude male_focus

This will hide all posts that are tagged with nude and male focus. Tags with only one but not the other will still show up.

Excludes
nude male_focus -1girl - multiple_girls

This will hide all posts that are tagged with nude and male focus, but only if they don't contain the tags 1girl or multiple girls.

Metatags

Some words preceded by a colon (metatag) allow blacklisting by non-tags.

  • rating: e, q, s
  • pool: ####
  • uploaderid: ####
  • toptaggerid: ####
  • status: active, flagged, pending, deleted, banned
  • score: ####
    • Only less-than comparisons allowed.
    • Ex: score:<0

#### Must be a number. Names are not allowed.

OR modifiers

The OR operator ~ allows the grouping of multiple tags and/or groups of tags onto the same line.

Simple groupings

Before:

bottomless

After:

Complex groupings

Before:

male_focus nude -1girl -multiple_girls
male_focus topless -1girl -multiple_girls

Usage

  • When your blacklist has found an item to blacklist, the Blacklist controls will appear on the page.
    • Located near the top at the top of the sidebar on the left (vertically-oriented).
    • ...or located near the top at the top of the sidebar on the left (horizontally-oriented).
  • Clicking on a blacklist entry will temporarily disable it and show the posts that match.
  • Clicking "Disable all" will show all posts and disable the blacklist between page loads.
  • Clicking "Re-enable all" will hide posts enable the blacklist between page loads.

Limitations

  • Wildcards are not allowed within blacklists. For example, using *boys to match the 2boys, 3boys, etc., tags will not work.
  • If there is more than one require term (tags without "-" or "~") on the same line, then those lines cannot be combined with other lines.
    • Unless both lines have the same set of require terms.
  • If the lines have different sets of exclude lines, then those lines cannot be combined with other lines.
