Although, I’ve wanted to ask, by what measure is “solo”? For example, solo’s description mentions “offscreen body parts” (ie. solo focus) - what if there’s a speech bubble from an otherwise unseen character? What if the character is referred to by text?  
What about when a character is depicted but not “present”, eg. on a poster or in-scene-context toy?  
Are “self *dox” and “multeity” compatible with “solo”?  
Should “multeity” be used only when the character is actually supposed to be duplicated in-scene, or also when it’s clearly a composite of discrete images (eg. “sketch dump”, expression practice, turnarounds, collages, reference sheets, comic panels)?
 
(explicit) - solo, or solo focus? Right now it’s solo focus, but I think it should be solo.  
- solo, or solo focus? Right now it’s solo focus, but I think it should be solo.

Those are all “solo”.
 
Implied characters and off-screen character don’t impact the solo tag unless part of them is actually in view.
 
Pictures and plushies within an image should be tagged, but otherwise have no bearing on whether an image should be tagged solo or not.

self ponydox  
Two or more versions of the same character are present in the scene (at least one being anthro or pony)
 
This requires a scene the character is in.  
duality  
Images with two versions of the same character.
 
This does not require a scene.
 
OK, the description for multeity is confusing.

I think I found a problem with the description for multeity:
 
multeity:  
Multiple copies of the same character in a single scene.
If it’s only a double, see the tag “self ponidox”. For pictures with different versions of the same character (e.g. Fluttershy and Flutterbat together), see the tag “duality”. For pictures where a pony version and humanized/EQG version of the same character appear, see the tag “human ponidox”.
self ponidox:  
Two or more versions of the same character are present in the scene (at least one being anthro or pony)
For example, male and female versions, or human and pony versions

X on Y action vs. Y on X action - is there a distinction? There are many examples where both orderings are in use, have implications, and are not aliased into one.
