Post Limiting

You cannot upload a post during the first week of signing up.

After the initial period, you can post a variable number of posts based on how many of your previous uploads were approved or deleted.

Prohibited and Restricted Content

You may not upload any of the following:

  • Non-anime: Photographs of American porn actresses, for example, are prohibited. Photographs of cosplayers, figures, or prominent figures in the industry are acceptable.
  • Manga: Uploading entire manga or doujinshi chapters is discouraged. Individual pages can be uploaded if they meet the quality criterion.
  • Fake translations: Images that have false translations are not allowed in any case.

The following may be uploaded, but will be put to a higher level of artistic and qualitative scrutiny than normal, and (if applicable) you must tag them with the corresponding tag. Please do not upload more than 20 a day of these works:

  • Western: Drawings of characters from non-Japanese comics, games, and other properties.
  • Furry: Any explicit image where a person's skin is made of fur or scales. Please use the furry tag.
  • Grotesque: Any depiction of extreme mutilation, extreme bodily distension, feces, or bodies that are far outside the realm of normal human proportion (for example, breasts that are larger than three heads in size or penises that are larger than two heads in size). Please use the guro tag.
  • Self Artwork: You can upload your own artwork but be aware that Danbooru is not a place to expect positive reinforcement. Your uploads will be subject to the same standards as everything else and may be flagged, downvoted, or even deleted. If you don't want to risk experiencing these things then don't upload your art.

The following may be uploaded but are generally not recommended unless a better copy cannot be found:

  • Third-Party Watermark: Any image where a person who is not the original copyright owner has placed a watermark on the image.
  • Hard translations: Images that have been edited to replace the original language are discouraged.
  • Poorly compressed: Any image where compression artifacts are easily visible. An exception to this is if the image was uploaded by the artist and there are no higher quality versions available.
  • Nude Filter: Images that have been edited by someone other than the original creator to remove clothing or censorship. These typically feature crude drawings of breasts or genitalia laid on top of the original image.
Copyright Infringement
