Help With Search
You may find yourself in need of assistance when using our site. Search is a main portion of our usability so we want you to understand how to search around for content. So here is a basic run down of various meta tags and search types you can do. Always keep in mind that a space in tags are really an underscore.

Basic Usage Documentation


The following code if entered into the search box will match any categories with tags that start with ab and end with d.
ab*d

You are able to remove potential results by simply adding a - in front of what you wish to negate. This will search for anything that does not have cat_ears as a tag.
-cat_ears

This will search the site contents with a title of ab*. The asterisk is a wildcard and will match anything that starts with ab.
title:ab*

Will search for any category with a rating of explicit. Supports explicit, questionable, and safe.
rating:explicit

You are able to search for posts by a certain user as well. This is currently limited to search by their personal ID, but will eventually be replaced with their name.
user:1

You can search as well by post_id. This is really only used for our API, but you can use it on our search as well. The example will find the category with an ID of 2.
post_id:2


Advanced Usage Documentation


Slightly more advanced is tag group searching. This allows you to find specific content based on tags associated with an object. The following will find any character with lipstick, who also has red hair and glasses. If it exists. The group of tags has to go between curly brackets.
{lipstick red_hair glasses}

You can combine everything above to make a larger query to bring your results down to a managable result count. The idea is that the more specific you are in searching, the less you will get in associated results.
glasses -rating:explicit green_eyes -skirt -title:sa*
