#4 Re: Website Issues and Support » [FEATURE] View animated SVG Image » 2020-01-27 12:52:59

Tried several options.
Usually animations (at least ones in database) are large and leaving svg file would make page load too slow.

there is a lot of things to improve. I agree. It is a young site and even now have reasonable functionality for most users. We are trying to make prioritisation as users and developers.

I'm pretty much ignored on social media so I can't help much there. Also I'm a bit reluctant to endorse either OCAL or FreeSVG. OCAL dropped the ball, but now it actually looks like it may be be do a comeback. FreeSVG have done a great job in resurrecting the old clip art from OCAL, but it feel like a ghost town so it don't encourage participation. Right now I don't trust either site so I'll just sit and wait and hope time will tell.

Hi liftarn,
we took little break during holidays but I assure you that we are fully committed and improving site constantly

Hi Rob,
holidays and such stuff  big_smile
I could't work so much in past period but from today starting again.
I checked little around and found out best solution for user safe content which I implemented.
User now can set in user profile if he/she wants to show nsfw content (
All currently registered users set to show nsfw. New users will be defaulted to no. Also for not registered users this images will not show.

#10 Re: Website Issues and Support » png converted doesn't work for some files » 2019-12-19 10:05:21

Yes this is true
I've tested several conversion engines for this purpose, now we are using one which can convert most of available SVG
I will make some checkup script to mark all images which are not converting correctly

#11 Re: Website Issues and Support » Ability to search using two or more tags with AND modifier » 2019-12-19 10:01:53

Hi, regarding tags, (ie it will display only SVGs which have tag in field tags.
Regarding search it it full text search engine and it has its own algorithm for ranking search results based on word order number of occurrences of searched word etc.
It is based on opensource search engine since performance of MySql full text search engine is very slow.

13. Plugin for Inkscape -  next year

Nice list, but about this. Would this be a plug-in you have to install or would it be native in Inkscape as a replacement for the OCAL import?

Ideally we would like it to be native support just like Import Clip Art worked with OCAL in Inkscape. But I guess we would need some help from Inkscape community so if anyone can help us get in touch with responsible developers or have any contacts there it would be very useful. Any other suggestions are also welcome.

OK. So can I add "edit image" button from each clipart page view? having to scroll through thousands of my clipart images to try to find one in my history to add tags to or something is a major headache. (On Openclipart us librarians could also edit titles/descriptions/tags on other images from the clipart view page, that also made editing wrong titles/tags etc very easy)

11. Direct fast corrections of text and tags on front end
I think this is it - I  can only try make it earlier (priorities are subjective and open to discussion)

#20 Re: Website Issues and Support » [BUG] sitewide restriction to prevent deletion of images by users » 2019-11-29 16:46:55

Hi Rob
all deletes are soft deletes meaning that they are only marked as deleted. So no data is lost. I can maybe make some menu with list of deleted images for moderators to see and check if some image is deleted with purpose.

#21 Re: Website Issues and Support » 404 message » 2019-11-29 12:36:26

Maybe all of them in random order

#23 Re: Website Issues and Support » Problem finding related images » 2019-11-27 18:21:21

Hi, collections are still in development.
intention is to mimic collections from openclipart.
Plan is to add button next to "claim svg" "Add to collection" where user can select own collections and add SVG to collection.
