dpfksThe Future of Deepfakes
#1
As many of you are aware, dpfak.com which was one of the largest deepfake communities out there has been closed by the owner Anton. He posted his statement on Voat which can be found You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.. With dpfak being close, many members are left without a home, and the general interest in this technology has declined. Regardless of the interest, deepfakes and the technology behind them are here to stay. This technology is still in it's infant stages and will continue to be developed and used.

MrDeepFakes is here to stay

Since the initial explosion on Reddit, MANY sites have popped up, and many have disappeared just as quickly. MrDeepFakes.com was formerly dpfks.com and we opened our doors shortly after the Reddit ban. Since then, we have been constantly working on improving the website and forums for the users and community. I know joining a new forum or community feels like starting fresh, and starting over, but the community is small, and all the important players will stick together. I promise to keep this community running as long as I can, so that the deepfake community does not have to scramble and relocate again.

If you have any suggestions, comments, etc. Please let me know and I will do my best to implement if I feel it's needed.

The biggest problem alot of people have is the fact that this site dosen't allow video downloads. Many people on voat say that is what is preventing them from using this site. Creators can't download their own content, even though the majority of content on this site has been tooken from other sources. Allow for video downloads, and don't block download extensions.

It isn't impossible to download the videos, just unnecessarily difficult. Screen capture, HLS stream download, etc are methods of downloading the videos. But why is there no download button? Or an easy way for creators to download their own content or other content for not only archival purposes but re-posting purposes, which if you don't allow, is very hypocritical.

I would like to reiterate this isn't an issue I have, its the voat community. I honestly could care less.

I will enable downloads in the near future. Here are some factors I must think about before enabling this feature:

1) Server costs/bandwidth - Unfortunately even in this day and age, this isn't free. Downloading will cost more bandwidth, and put more strain on the servers.
2) Leeching - people will join and download all the videos, what is the point of returning? Other sites literally rip the videos and make their own website. Mr Deepfakes has an archive of over 95% of all publicly available deepfakes and I also create my own and I do not want other sites just taking videos to reupload - this is also why I watermark my own videos.

Due to these issues, I have decided to keep downloads disabled currently. I do eventually want to enable downloads. I am very interested in what the deepfake producers think about this.

I definitely understand. Are you banned from voat? I suggest you make a post addressing this.

Personally, I liked the way it worked at dpfak with just linking to the videos on erome or sndvid. Both are very easy to download from and it ensures that the videos will stay out there even when the forum goes down.

The biggest thing I think should be done here is to allow for private messages to be easily sent back and forth between users. As it is now, you can email a user, but not a direct private message which one could easily reply to.

Actually there is private messaging in the top right corner.

Thank you for bringing this up. I have discovered an error where users have Private Messages disabled by default. I will work on fixing this shortly.

That is rather hypocritical. That's exactly what you did. Reposting others videos is the same thing you did. voat.co is the majority of your content.

Like I said before, I don't care about this as much because I feel like this is the internet and people just need to grow up.

But the people on voat are stubborn. You have to address or at least justify this.  Make an announcement on voat addressing everything.
