help:upload rules (locked)
All uploads to Danbooru are subject to the following upload rules. Uploads that break these rules may be deleted.
You may not upload any of the following to Danbooru:
- Off-topic content (see below).
- Poorly drawn content.
- Paid rewards.
- Commercially licensed anime or manga.
- Real photos of any person under the age of 18.
- Works containing third-party watermarks.
- Works upscaled or downscaled by third parties, including Waifu2x upscales.
- Hard translations to non-English languages (hard-translated).
- Third-party edits that substantially alter the content of the image, such as nude filters, headshops, fake translations, or meme or joke edits.
- Low effort or unoriginal memes, such as motivators (if not done by the original artist).
- AI-generated art.
Danbooru is primarily for anime-style or anime-related artwork. "Anime-related" is a broad term that includes anime, manga, videogames, original artwork, and other similar material.
The following things are considered off-topic:
- Real life pornographic photos or videos, such as Western porn actresses or Japanese JAV idols.
- Real life photos that have nothing to do with anime, manga, or videogames.
- Low effort or unoriginal memes.
- Western toon porn (think "Simpsons porn in its original style", not "good quality Avatar porn").
The following things are not strictly against the rules, but they have a much higher chance of being deleted than normal. Uploaders should be careful about uploading these things, and approvers should be careful about approving them.
- Extreme fetish content. This includes extreme guro, scat, bestiality, vore, "hyper" fetishism (monstrously large body parts), diaper fetishism, and other extreme or unusual fetishes.
- Explicit furry content.
- 3D porn or SFM porn.
- Cosplay photos.
- Hard-translated comics.
- Anime screencaps.
- Third-party edits not in the "Prohibited Content" section above.
- Bad anatomy.
