clothed -> clothing


earring: 445
ear_ring: 7

honestly I think they're two words and would like to recommend aliasing towards ear_ring ... but obviously earring is the more well established spelling. Although that's a small enough number some pony could go through and fix the tags manually ... I know, that's what computers are for but I hate seeing all the cruft that must be building up just looking at this topic alone.

Done.

Tradewind said:
Nightmare Rarity is a canon character (in the context of the Official MLP Comics), so I think it needs a separate tag, just as Nightmare_moon =/= Princess Luna.

Tradewind's got a point - I've changed those three pics back to nightmare_rarity and aliased nightmare_rarity_(mlp) to nightmare_rarity.

internetcatchphrase said:
clothed -> clothing

Went with an implication on this one - clothed does necessarily mean there's clothing in a picture, but there could easily be pictures that depict clothing that's not being worn by anypony.

Done. earring is a valid endocentric compound word - i.e., it's in the dictionary. Not that ear_ring is not a valid term, but as you said, earring is more common, so I chose to keep that one.

So, I'm not sure we have a lot of these kind of images, but if I (or, you know ... anyone else ...) upload much Fo:E inspired images, this is a topic that is heavily used in the stories so it's bound to need a tag ...

Cutie marks that are brands. Dashites' mark is intended to resemble Rainbow Dash's ... because she is toted as their ultimate traitor so every pegasus that turns their back on the clouds is forever marked as a shunned pony, never to return.

Also, there's P-21. His mark was prevented by magically adding an artificial mark when he was P-1 (one pip) with another pip added with each young pony stallion, bumping him up in the ranks. Now, I expect there'll never be any P-x images other than the two we meet (P-21 and U-20) but still, we should probably have a tag for it.

Corrupted_cutie_mark? Damaged_cutie_mark? Any image with Morning Glory as a dashite would qualify for this tag, such as #37537 ...

I think this should be covered by the Tag What You See rules. A cutie mark is tagged as "_____ cutie mark," where _____ is what it looks like. The only exception I can think of off-hoof is the wrong_cutie_mark tag, where a canon pony with an established appearance and cutie mark has a different cutie mark than they're supposed to.

IMO, Morning Glory's cutie mark is a lightning bolt, therefore, lightning cutie mark (Dash's oddly enough, is a rainbow cutie mark, but Glory's is colorless).

Also, made Fallout: Equestria a copyright tag, since that seem the most fitting.


red_mane -> red_hair

Also,

red_fur and green_fur still need to be -> to red_body and green_body respectively. I've been dealing with instances as they appear. Not essential to have them auto-changed, but it would be one less thing to monitor.

edit:

hallogreen is pwnypony.

http://hallogreen.deviantart.com/gallery/

The signature on the images is "pwny."

Pwnypony is by far the more common tag on 20pc.

I've asked this before and I ask it again: why do we have a horse tag? I see it on imports from e621 and I have no clue why we need it. It is utterly redundant with the pony tag. It's not useful for pics of actual horses; that's what the realistic tag is for.

Could we get horse aliased to invalid tag, please? Failing that, could somepony explain to me why it is necessary to have two redundant tags?

No, because realistic could refer o a realistic pony character and if we aliased away horse, it would be indistinguishable from that


applejack_(eg)
fluttershy_(eg)
pinkie_pie_(eg)
rainbow_dash_(eg)
rarity_(eg)
spike_(eg)
twilight_sparkle_(eg)

Auto-change them to their regular character tags?

edit: found these, too

little_strongheart_(mlp)
shadowbolts_(mlp)
apple_fritter_(mlp)
mare_do_well_(mlp)
fiddlesticks_(mlp)
smarty_pants_(mlp)
roid_rage_(mlp)
lily_(mlp)
belle_eve_(mlp)
ursa_major_(mlp)
starswirl_the_bearded_(mlp)
steven_magnet_(mlp)

edit #2:

black_fur -> black_body


Been manually dealing with them as they arise, but there keep being uploads tagged with (something)_skin. I think they should be auto-changed to the corresponding _body tags, the way _fur tags are. That tag works whether the body in question is furry, scaly, feathery, or...skinny.

But . . . why do we have horse? I genuinely do not understand.

The characters in FiM are ponies. Even Princess Celestia is a pony. There are no horses, unless you count the denizens of Saddle Arabia. Yes, I realize that IRL, ponies are a type of horse, but it's an utterly redundant, and therefore worthless, tag.

It would be like requiring every pic tagged with "[color]_eyes" to also include tags like "eyeball" and "eyelash" and "eyelid" and "face." Yes, they're in the pic, but they're absolutely worthless as tags because they do not facilitate searching, blacklisting, useful description, or any other feature I can think of.

Am I wrong? Because if so, I am totally missing the benefit of the "horse" tag.

_______________________________________________________________________
On an unrelated note, I'm seeing fanart of characters from the IDW comics that do not appear in the show, such as Wheat Grass and Flax Seed, and Nightmare Rarity. Since these characters are canon, but have not and likely will not appear in the TV show, perhaps we should create IDW as a copyright tag? Comic-only characters could imply IDW.

It's because horses (not cartoon ponies) can appear in posts with FIM characters and the realistic tag isn't quite accurate for it

Such as in instances like

Aside from that, I'll clean up the tags if no one else does it in a few days

Ah, okay. To be clear, this means we don't need horse on pics that contain only pony characters, correct?

Also, what about my IDW tag idea? I'd be glad to implement it, but I don't want to start something the mods are against.

I try to keep the 'horse' tags cleaned up, and only on images that I think actually need it. It's usually when there's a mass upload from e621 that the horse tag gets spammed.

Yes that's what it's intended use is, also what is IDW?

IDW Publishing, publishers of the FiM comics (which, BTW, are awesome).


Aw I see, what was your idea with them?

Late reply is late.

I've been adding IDW as a copyright tag to posts with characters that appear exclusively in the comics (so far, just Nightmare Rarity, though there are others that will show up here in time).

Edit:Such as the Wheat Grass and Flax Seed pics I've just uploaded.

BTW if horse tag is kept for reason few posts above wouldn't it make sense to remove implications:
unicorn -> pony
pegasus -> pony
etc.?

There could be non-pony examples of such species in pictures.


Not an alias request, but a tagging comment. On post #40692 I removed 'uncanny_valley' because, IMHO, that's an incredibly subjective finding (although I grant you, 3d + anthro tends towards that valley. But still).

Also, is there a tag for Fluttershy's bunny suit of infiltration? I just uploaded an image with her wearing it but can't, yet, find a good tag far that (#42797 if some helpful person just wants to add it)

Bunny suit, maybe? I don't think it has a formal title.

General question, since I can't find a better thread for it: what, exactly, is the line between Questionable and Explicit? I would have thought visible genitalia and/or sex would be a good break point, but there are currently 97 pics with cameltoe (which, let's be honest, is female genitalia) and are only rated Q.

Meanwhile, we have post #31038, which was rated Explicit by somepony, despite showing no sex or naughty bits - even the artist says it's not meant as sex.

Finally, does this apply only to sexual situations, or to gore? Does a pic with swearing in it automatically warrant the Questionable rating? I've looked in vain for a definitive rating guide.

I've seen Fluttershy's outfit from Magic Duel refferred to as the "dangerous mission outfit".
