Black and white stuff is giving me such a headache for the new art theft system

Like I'm not gonna link the indiviudal pieces because it wouldn't be fair to go "this is bad" to someone but

Here's a black and white piece on the FIRST step of the new system

And here's a coloured one

You can already see how many false positives the first one is going to set off just because there's nothing really there for it to work with

Maybe it's time for me to just get stricted with what's allowed in the art post system? A lot of people have been misusing it, I guess. But I don't wanna be that guy who goes "no, that's not art" or whatever. Bah.

@UnidentifiedBlog 's comment was real good (and I second it). If theres a way to limit strictness based on the images span of hues. For example, monochrome images can be identified by their limit of hue values. Perhaps, more rigorous routines can be put in place for such images?

Otherwise, I personally feel its not a failing if the system has a hard time with black and white drawings. It can't catch everything perfectly. Its just finding a balance of making sure it doesn't false positive too many things. I don't think the answer is "disallow simple or black and white drawings from art posts". If the system can't be figured out, it is what it is. The art theft system was never make or break for me. The fact that it can pick up on straight or very minorly altered repostings is a god send already. It doesn't have to work miracles.

i'm currently wondering what happens to those of us that only work in black and white or can only do sketches because we literally do not have the motivation to finish anything else.

It feels incredibly wrong to decide what qualifies as "art" though? Like based on the featured posts a lot of different kinds of art gets posted and a lot of different people like all of it. I know it's not exactly trying to be a punishment thing or whatever but it just seems wildly uncomfortable to decide that only some art gets to be in the art section.

is there maybe a way you can code it in to register if a drawing is in black & white, & then handle it differently/be more lenient with simularities? It might make it easier to steal b&w images, but it could be worth considering the toss up of how often you'll get false positives vs how often art will be stolen & uploaded

there's a shit ton of black and white art like... people draw with pencils and lines and stuff. just make a detailed description of what art theft system covers and what doesn't. It would be super weird to say "this is only art because our algorithm has decided this is art".
