Danbooru on Cooliris does not work anymore?

Posted under General

I always use Cooliris http://www.cooliris.com/ to browse Danbooru's rss feed. But few days ago it become unavailable (Said the feed has no item), While the other image board (such as safebooru) is still works fine. And as I can see the rss and atom feed of Danbooru is OK on Google Reader.

So I just want to make sure that this is an error or it is Danbooru really intend to make the site to not works Cooliris because of traffic and redirecting problem or something?

If you want to test if it's a referrer issue you could 3dbooru through it as referrer checking is enabled I know for sure over there. Otherwise it could be something more obscure/obtuse.

I too am having this problem. My situation is identical. I'm not sure I understand the point about 3dbooru, but I located the site and can confirm it works just fine on cooliris for me. I'll also point out it's not working on the Chrome nor Firefox versions.

I don't see how removing support from Cooliris would be a good thing in any way. It was great because it let you view posts spanning many pages with just a click of an arrow. If I ever found anything I liked specifically, I would always go back to Danbooru and fave it and whatnot, and I'm sure I'm not the only one, so I'm sure it's not detracting from people using the site. It only enhanced it and now it's gone. This is frustrating and inconvenient.

Oh yes Piclens. I removed this because I didn't like the idea of an easy way to circumvent the ads. I also feel like PicLens is a niche product and I also don't like the idea of making a special exception for this one app.

If there is a huge public outcry I will readd it for privileged members.

I don't care about Cooliris, but yeah, what sgcdonmai said. And Albert, didn't you say before that you don't care to do things that make buying Priv less attractive (or something)? Well, so long as you already have the code, more perks are more reasons to pay, no?

In complete honesty, I must point out that in my regular use of Cooliris, I never even considered the fact that ads weren't in sight, it was not a part of my fondness of the plugin.

Plenty of other sites where I've used Cooliris, ads were still appearing within Cooliris. I would presume evazion's suggestion to be the method behind that. I can easily embrace ads there in exchange for continued use of Cooliris.

Is there any estimate on when a decision will be finalized, or are things here as spontaneous as it is implied? I've never been to Danbooru's forum before now. In the meantime, I'll have to find a different site, as it was all about Cooliris for me. Getting used to Cooliris then not using it makes traditional image browsing feel sluggish or clunky...

I'm shamelessly bumping this because I really would like this feature to return, even if it's for privileged members only, and I'm not the only one.

I wasn't kidding; I will pay for a privileged account if it means I can use Cooliris again.

Has anyone above priv been able to verify that this works for them. A long while ago I used Piclens, and figured I'd try it out again just now, but it doesn't seem to work for me. Perhaps it was accidentally re-enabled for *only* privileged (and not above)? Either that or my extensions have gone wonky or something.
