New Y!social Service **UDPATE**
UPDATE (01 Dec 2022): Please go into your settings and press the Get new Y!social Token/Make Y!social Link again. We've added the ability for Y!g to create posts with the preview image from Y!g on the Y!social post itself. Because of the scope change on Y!social, new tokens are necessary.

Because of the implosion of twitter, we have a special surprise for everyone. We've set up a LGTBQ+ safe alternative to twitter, called Y!social (or Y!s) for everyone. You will be able to cross-post your artwork from Y!gallery to Y!social by accessing some new options in your settings on Y!gallery. You have the option to have your artwork (excluding extras) and journals cross-post automatically, or you can switch the automatic feature off and only have specific items you check cross-post. You can have the cross-posts stay in sync with the journals and submissions they're based off (this can be enabled in your Y!g settings under General Settings). This means any edits you make on your journals or submission on Y!g will show up on Y!s. You'll also be able to post your previously uploaded Y!gallery submissions to Y!social via the edit submission section on your works. Lastly - For those using extras - you'll be able to use Y!s to host the media for your extras posts using private posts, saving you from trying to find a nsfw site to host your works.

You can follow the following the tutorial to enable crossposting and syncing: FAQ 61: How to enable Y!social crossposting

Y!s is soley run and hosted by the Y!g staff and is running on the open source software Mastodon. Our content is distributed globally and is fault tolerant, ensuring the content you upload remains safe and available. Like Twitter, Y!social can be used to receive news, follow and stay in-touch with all your friends. Y!social will allow you to connect to people that post content that you enjoy consuming, or simply communicate with friends. Additionally, anyone who has content they would like to sell or market can use Y!s to increase your brand awareness.

We encourage you to check out Y!social here at ✨ social.y-gallery.net ✨ or click the Y!s icon on the topbar at Y!gallery and sign up! Feel free to tell your friends and family as well. We hope that you all enjoy this new service

Site Updates - Nov 24, 2022
Hi everyone!

I just wanted to inform you all that I've made some updates to the site in preparation for a feature that'll be launching very soon. As such, the submission posting and editing, and the journals posting and editing code has been altered. If you have or experience any issues posting/editing either of of the two, please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly! You can contact me either by PM on here, or via Discord by @'ing me in the #ygallery-discussions channel

AI generated artwork
Hello all.

Recently, we've had an issue pop up that is not something we've had to deal with in the past. While we appreciate that AI generated artwork takes many working hours, we have come to the conclusion, after much discussion, that it would not be ethical for us to host it on Y!gallery for various reasons.

There is the problem with lesser vetted AI generators when it comes to things like overfitting, if it was trained on a smaller amount of images, or if it wasn't validated correctly. This may cause it to turn out images that too closely resemble a real person. There's also the issue that AI generated art may steal parts of other artists or photographers work to create a new image. Since we have no way to guarantee that this will not happen when using such generators, we sadly must disallow AI generated art from being posted to the site.

To this end, we've implemented a new rule, which you can find listed now in our ToS as Rule 2e. We're very sorry if this causes any inconvienience, but we hope you'll understand our reasoning in putting in this new rule.

Thank you,
Your Y!gallery Staff
