about the website / author
Wallbase.cc can simply be described as a searchable wallpaper database, and it strives to be little more than that. All the content here was uploaded by the users.
The main person behind all of this is Yotoon
- I designed, optimized and coded basically everything you see here. If you have any questions or comments, please use the Comments
subpage or feel free to e-mail me at the mail provided below. Thanks. :)
The staff of Wallbase take copyright violations very seriously. If you spotted an image that belongs to you and you don't want it to be shown on this website, please let us know using this e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will delete it in a matter of hours and we will prevent from uploading it in the future. Thank you.
The frontend is a mash of (x)HTML and jQuery
The entire thing is running on a two Linux Ubuntu machines hosted by OVH
(Server is located in France).
Some software I use:
- — Linux Ubuntu (server edition)
- — Lighttpd web server (site frontend)
- — Nginx web server (image backend)
- — PHP + xCache (as FastCGI)
- — MySQL
- — Memcache
- — IQDB image search
If you're not familiar with *chan structure, searching is done through 3 main categories/boards:
: Wallpaper / General - self explanatory...
: Wallpaper / Anime - mainly manga&anime wallpapers
: High Resolution - huge, high quality photos (most of images in there are not plain wallpapers)
Additionally, some wallpapers are tagged as NSFW
(Not suitable for work/school), Sketchy
(Not entirely clean but not a NSFW also. Something in between) or SFW
The main rule for this website is to keep the images on a certain level of quality. I mean, I don't allow any child nudity, desktops, highly offensive wallpapers on Wallbase, but if you spot any disturbing images, please mark them for deletion. Thanks!
Oh, and some of the descriptions are originally from 4scrape (the best wallpaper website of its time).
