@Background Pony #52BA
I keep having ideas on what I want to reply to you but can’t seem to structure them into a coherent whole, so bear with my word vomit.
You already have modern art, surreal, and abstract art on them
I did not add the
modern art tag. That was an implied tag from
barely pony related tag
Of the images you listed, the only ones I’d see that qualify for that are the flutterfractal (which is a fractal rendering that just so happens to use Fluttershy’s iconic colors) and >>1498344
(I wouldn’t know that it is at all pony-related without reading the image description)
tag search for
TIL about searching for tags by category. The bulk of my original intended response was going to be for “meta tags” but categories already exist and cover the use case I’d propose, so bear with the long list of questions.
- Is there a way to search for all categories (sorted, of course, by the number of tags belonging to each)?
- Is there a help document about tag categories or will I need to read through the Philomena code to learn more?
- Can a tag belong to more than one category?
- Is there a full hierarchy of implied and aliased categories like there is for tags? The reason why I called my idea “meta tags” is that they would function just like tags except for tagging other tags instead of tagging uploads.
The heart of my post was going to be the idea of creating three category roots that would contain all other tag categories (my idea only works if categories can be nested and tags can belong to more than one category):
visual tag: these tags (or subcategories) describe what is physically in the image.
no sound would both count in the visual category.
intent tag: these tags and subcategories specify the artistic intent.
category:gender would belong here, while the specific
category:body part tags would each be a
visual tag. Another good example would be
disguised changeling in an image that otherwise has no visual indication of the presence of a changeling.
meta tag: information about the image.
image for breezies,
category:file format all belong here.
However, a number of important tags (and categories) would fall under two of the above at once:
character tags and and
not Character tag are both a
visual tag and an
intent tag. Same with the
- Any tag in the
artistic medium category is both a
visual tag and a
So where am I going with all this?
As I’m 90% sure I mentioned (and 98.9% certain that someone discussed at length) in the thread on This Pony Does Not Exist tagging, tagging images that aren’t obvious representational art causes tagging snarls because highly-abstracted images create art where the visual and intent elements are not in obvious alignment. Images that look like Rainbow Dash but are not, in fact, Rainbow Dash exist (hence the
not Rainbow Dash tag) as well as images that imply an off-screen Rainbow Dash (
implied Rainbow Dash, as it were) and also images that include Dashie’s on-screen presence in spite of looking nothing like RD herself (the images we’ve been discussing and anything with the
sex-implying blocks tag are in this classification).
