Why exactly Fine Arts discriminates against Explicit and Questionable, again? Is this implying that nudity is not worthy of the title? In reality a large amount of actual fine art falls into explicit rating by DB's policy, as was estabished here.
Of course, it's easier to just cut off a huge category of quality art than accept it and deal with grey areas.

Because
A) most questionable and explicit images — especially ones that get high scores — are straight-up porn, and
B) that would make it a subjective judgement call (not to mention time-consuming) as opposed to a simple automatic process.

Because erotic art gets higher scores due to voting with your upper and lower brain. I have to figure out a proper cut off zone for it. And also the opposite for grimdark/grotesque stuff, because that tends to get far lower scores.

But no, it's really just an underhanded attempt to stamp out r34 art. We hate that stuff over here, after all.

It is kinda funny how we think about it. I mean I suggest an art tag as well as an clop tag ages ago, if we had them implemented, the badges stuff to promote this good stuff would be easier to sort out. :D
So we kinda want the same, but the methods are quite different. :)

Something can be erotic and can be still be art.
That's my point exactly. Or rather, that the same applies in reverse; no matter how "fine artsy" a piece of artistic nudity gets, someone will find it arousing.
What I'm getting at is, there'd be quite a bit of overlap. Possibly enough to make the two tags useless.

So, for badge-awarding purposes, would you exclude clop or whatever or could Fine Art be granted even to someone who uploads clop exclusively, as long as enough of it is of art quality?

Seems pretty dangerous. I already exclude things like exploitables, screencaps and generally things without artist tags, which IMO is enough. I don't think it'd be wise to have a tag that says "This is art", because, well, that's pretty subjective. Especially when we'd have people going "this isn't good enough to be art". Eech etc.

And yes, a lot of "clop" is easily "art". You can't look at something from Fuchs, EC Major, Longinus, Atryl, Bri Sta, Audarius and dozens and dozens of other artists and say "this isn't art" without choking on a clump of bovine fecal matter.

It remains a problem for this badge stuff that art that's visually pleasing and jitters your critters will get "a lot" of votes. Plus we also have people dedicated to uploading quality SFW stuff only, and people dedicated to uploading quality NSFW only. There may still be a badge for general upload quantity/quality, but step by very slow limping step (and the odd confused backstep) is the Derpibooru way.

@BinaryPony
that i dont deny, sex sells, only 3 of my faves are actually sfw.

just saying, porno does have an advantage but its not less artistic, or else half of the artist from old times wouldnt be considered artistic.
