Should flashbacks to previous episodes also be tagged with the episodes’ names?
 
Mainly saying this because of the song from “Sportacular Spectacular Musical Musak-ular”, as parts of the song contain raw footage from previous episodes.

there is a tag called “it came from deviantart” which pokes fun at low-quality art. but there has been a background pony who i may know who it might be who has been using the tag as a source for deviantart-based arts. it’s not only pointless because you can already search art by sources, but they also tag stuff based on things they like or old stuff (i.e., gravity falls and lazlo stuff)  
i don’t know if this is the right place to ask, but should the tag be removed altogether, or should only the ones that the background pony have been adding been removed? i’m personally all for a removal either way

Now that pixel count is a searchable attribute, could someone with The Power mass-tag for missing absurd resolution tags and missing high res tags?
 
BTW, it’s a bit odd that one is aliased into the version with the full word “resolution” and the other is alised into the abbreviated “res”.

Similarly, since we can search and filter by aspect ratio, should thumbnail is a stick be either nuked or mass-tagged to relevant untagged images? (I’ve arbitrarily picked a ratio of 8, IMO a good cutoff; the tag is in use down to around 6 though. The mass of exclusions are because they are actually normal-looking in their horizontal format.)

And for missing absurd file size?

Notoriously Divine Tagger - Consistently uploads images above and beyond the minimum tag requirements. And/or additionally, bringing over the original description from the source if the image has one. Does NOT apply to the uploader adding several to a dozen tags after originally uploading with minimum to bare tagging.

I don’t think a general tag for it is necessarily good, since new species are often themselves made of mix-and-match anatomy, like griffons.
 
@Litrojia  
Ultimately I think we need to redefine “semi-anthro”, because currently it’s a bit restrictive and very little fits it. Probably needs to be more directly in-between feral forms and anthro, as opposed to currently being very, very close to feral forms, to the point it should probably be on screencaps. At any rate, that isn’t it.
 
@Litrojia  
I used to tag that ages ago. I think it has some purpose aside from shipping in that it can denote actual romance versus just sex, though it’s in a weird spot ever since we began excluding shipping from non-consensual stuff. It should definitely be merged with similar tags, at any rate.
 
@Algebroot Neogears  
Yes.

The “Lickety Split” character tags are messy. There are three tags to describe two characters (a G1 pony and a G4 pony).
 
lickety split - 276 images, including ~184 for the G1 pony  
lickety-split - 24 images, including 23 for the G1 pony  
lickety split (g4) - 11 images, all are for the G4 pony. Notably this tag is the only of the three not to be marked as a character tag.
 
My hunch is that the G1 pony should be given “lickety split”, the G4 pony should be given “lickety split (g4)”, and “lickety-split” should be aliased to “lickety split”. Alternatively, a “lickety split (g1)” tag could be made.

According to My Little Wiki, the G1 pony’s name is formatted as Lickety-Split.
 
I would put priority on the G1 pony for main tag as they have more images and are (arguably) more well known, while the colt can get (g4).
 
Or do it the other way around, it doesn’t matter, but one needs a suffix even if they are spelled differently. I still think (g4) is better.

This is pretty much my line of thinking. Having the two characters’ tags only distinguished by a hyphen would be confusing for uploaders, and the G1 pony should have priority for a simpler tag since she’s more popular. I don’t really care about either character, so any way it’s sorted out is fine with me.
