Blacklist issue (Sorry if it's a redundant question)
Posted on: 02/11/13 11:58PM
I tried to do a search through the forums and I still can't figure out exactly what's going on with my blacklist.

* I'm using Chrome
*My blacklist does not block anything despite my using the proper method for inputting tags such as:
"-futa -futanari -dog -dogs" etc
*I have java enabled and it seems to be working fine as far as I can tell.
*I'm accepting cookies
*My browser is up to date

*Just tonight I started realising that updates to my blacklist were not being shown after saving them. I did a search through these forums and found a post implying that the problem is the browser and suggesting clearing cookies and cache. I did this and the next time I opened the browser and looked at my blacklist it was updated, however any future updates beyond that would once again not be shown after telling it to save them...

My apologies. I could tell by doing a search through the forums that problems with the blacklist seem to be quite common but despite reading quite a few threads I still couldn't figure out what was going on. I'm sorry if this is something that has been addressed numerous times before.

I managed to fix all of the issues by clearing browsing history, saved passwords, and auto fill data. It appears just telling Chrome to clear the cache and cookies isn't enough.

I think you need javascript rather than java.

Accepting cookies is right I think, but you might try clearing the Gelbooru cookies you have on your browser right now. Then log back in and see if the blacklist function works then.

Wait, are you typing in "futanari" or "-futanari" in the blacklist? Because logically if you put "-futanari" it would blacklist everything WITHOUT the futanari tag (it's essentially a double negative). But I think it just blacklists nothing instead.

The minus only works for the search bar, such as "one_piece -futanari" would get you everything with the One Piece tag but omit those with the futanari tag.

Neither of those tags actually exist. A search for "aisatu" returns zero results, and "akiya" returns a single photograph of a cat.

I somehow doubt that you're trying desperately to blacklist a single photograph of a cat, so I think your problem is that you're trying to blacklist the wrong tags.

Remember that Gelbooru tag searches work on an exact match. A search for, for example, "catsup" would only find images with the exact tag "catsup". Unless there is an alias in use, it would not find images tagged "ketchup".

We also only use one tag for any given idea or meaning. Images will not be tagged both "catsup" and "ketchup" at the same time. Using the condiment example, the correct tag is "ketchup", so blacklisting "catsup" won't do a thing, and all images with ketchup in them will still be displayed in the search because you didn't blacklist "ketchup", the correct tag.

This goes down to even closer matches. "aisatu" in Japanese can also be romanized "aisatsu", but this would not be matched in a search for "aisatu". This also doesn't appear to be the correct tag, so...

Some tags with qualifiers are properly aliased, but others are not. So, if you're trying to blacklist a tag that would otherwise be the correct tag, but which needs a qualifier because of multiple similar tags, these will also fail.
For example, the character tag "futaba_aoi" used to be a real tag, until a second character with the exact same name came around.
Now, both characters have a qualifier. There's "futaba_aoi_(asobi_ni_iku_yo!)" and "futaba_aoi_(vividred_operation)", but neither of these tags will be caught by the blacklist if you try to blacklist "futaba_aoi".

Qualifiers also appear in artist tags. For example, many artists have the circle name, which they are often known under for quite some time until their individual name gets dug up, as a qualifier. An example of this is osaru_(yuuen-dou). Blacklisting "osaru" won't block Osaru's artwork, nor will blacklisting "yuuen-dou" or his old artist tag, "glimited". These aren't an exact match for the current correct tag of "osaru_(yuuen-dou)", so blacklisting them will do nothing.

That said, unless you tell us exactly what you're trying to blacklist, we can't give you the correct tags to do so. Please elaborate on what it is you want to stop seeing in your search.

Ok, hate to necropost but this is the closest established thread to the problem I'm having.

I've added a tag to my blacklist and saved, it stays in the list but still shows up in search. The ":>=" tag is the one I'm trying to block.

That one sounds like it's probably an issue with special characters. I'll do some tests, and if that turns out to be the case, I'll throw it in the trac.

Chrome seems to be blocking things on it's own

I have nothing in my blacklist, and for some reason certain things seem to be popping up as blacklisted, this shouldn't be possible. I open up MS Edge on the same page and, no issue. Even when I'm logged in on the same account. Would love to have an answer to this as I prefer chrome, it's quite frustrating however when many pictures are popping up with blacklist for no reason.
