IQDB dupe checking on upload

  • 14059
    After a few weeks of testing, I'm happy to say we're ready to finally get IQDB dupe checking up and running on upload! This should help cut down on dupes by a ton. If you have any issues, let us know in this thread. If you think you get hit by a false positive, include the wallpaper you were uploading (upload to another image hosting site so we can see it) and what ID the dupe detection thinks it matches. We've also upped the filesize limit from 10MB to 20MB. However, I do suggest being 'smart' about what you upload. For example, try to avoid 20MB PNGs when a 2MB JPG would look 99% as good. Compression sucks, but most the time if done right, the differences are negligible. Any and all other feedback on uploading is welcome here as well!

    Sweeeeeeeeeeet. I get the feeling that Alpha is nearing a close.

    It only seems to work on recently uploaded wallpapers? Anything older than 2 months seems to go through even though they're dupes. I guess it doesn't matter. Alpha and all. Recent uploads work great though.

    Yeah, it seems like the database got purged because it's no longer showing any similar results.

    Ugg. I think I know why.... Reindexing IQDB. Everything should be back in an hour or two.

    It works ok most of the times, but seems like when wallpaper is old enough system won't detect duplicate.

    How about preexisting dupes? I've seen a bunch of those...

    I too want to know. is it possible to do this ON the server hosting the images and then flagging any that are poorly tagged or lower filesize at the same resolution? flagging would keep a human element in there to determine any that should be removed. but, that also expands some man-hours needed to sift through, so it's all up to the "is it worth it" aspect, especially if alpha is coming to a close soon.

    You do realise you're still going to https://alpha.wallhaven.cc/ right? And the little ribbon at the lower right corner...

    Never even paid attention to the link. The site's one of my homepages, and who even looks at lower corners anymore, it's 2017!
