I miss the show so much
Whoa what all those tags?! 🤯😱
Misspellings. Since the first use of a tag also creates it, all (saved) typos create new tags in the system. It’s possible to remove them, but that’s rarely done. It’s more common to either just leave them there, or alias “invalid” tags to the correct one.
The oc only tag already has a few misspelling aliases at the moment (oconly and co only). Hopefully it’ll soon have more.

I know thanks :)
That’s a lot of misspelled tags though :o

Why do so many tags alias to vaguer, less accurate versions? Like, “reasonably sized crotchboobs” aliases to “teats”, “marecunt” aliases to “anatomically correct”, and “transparent clothing” aliases to “see-through”. Why don’t we make the “canonical” aliases the ones that actually describe what the tags are for?

Some are artifacts from older/more popular usage, under the assumption that once a particular name or phrasing has embedded itself into fandom culture, it becomes the more intuitive and recognizable term. Of course, aliasing resolves this by substituting itself in searches and filters…
For the specific examples you listed, I’d argue that you have it backwards. “reasonably sized crotchboobs” is almost nonsense; “reasonably” is a meaningless word when applied to measures. Using the more anatomical term reinforces the relation to real-world proportions. “transparent clothing” is less inclusive than “see-through” because, for example, a wet t-shirt is not transparent but still reveals details when it’s in direct contact with skin: “see-through”. “transparent clothing” is also mildly ambiguous, because it could be thought of as only for clothing that is always transparent and not circumstantially/temporarily transparent. (Although, now that I write that out, a dedicated tag for designed-transparent clothing could be interesting!)
Agreed, however, that “anatomically correct” is a bad term - I’m pretty sure it’s one of those aforementioned fandom artifacts - but “marecunt” is also dumb.

How is “reasonably sized crotchboobs” any less meaningful than “reasonably sized penis” or “sensibly-proportioned pregnancy”?
I know for a fact that “teats” causes confusion, as I’m constantly needing to remove it from images like >>2922914. Plus, the idiosyncratic use of the term means imports from places like e621 commonly end up mistagged.
Also, if “see-through” is only intended for clothing, why not “see-through clothing”?

I really like her mane!
Even though she officially became Dragon Lord at the end of the episode she first appeared in, Ember is still tagged as princess ember rather than dragon lord ember. It’s been six years. Why hasn’t the tag been aliased since then?

Those are also badly-named tags, and I don’t think it supports your argument considering they have 50x fewer posts tagged than teats, and that about 1/3 of crotchboobs are tagged teats while fewer than 1/100 pregnant are tagged sensibly-proportioned pregnancy and 1/1000 penis are reasonably sized penis

That’s a fair argument and I might agree with it. It’s not what your original post was about nor what I replied to, though.
Also, if “see-through” is only intended for clothing, why not “see-through clothing”?
That sounds like a good change, it makes it more immediately understandable.
It appears the alias was originally set up the other way around because at the time, “see-through” was used way more.

The description of the tag dragon lord ember explains why they’re separate and when to use each.

Should there be created a sub-tag of six fanarts for the “six ponies” variant?
Furthermore, if so, should the tag get used for “six fanarts” images where all six are ponies, but the template was not edited to say “six ponies”?
Anyone with thoughts about my question from 3 months ago?

Are there tags for the mane six’s self-designed gala dresses from Suited For Success? Either collectively (eg. “fail gala dress” or something) or individually? I found the extremely underused constellation dress for Twilight’s, and that’s it.
Or this one?

If you feel such a tag is useful, why not create it?

I think yes. After all, ponies are the point, not the text.

If no one answered you, it’s because they know of no such tags, but they can’t be sure that such tags don’t exist. If you need these tags, create them. If it turns out there already were tags for those dresses, they can always be aliased.

Remember to use the Tags page, it’s similar to the main search function but can access what the main one can’t, and vice versa, specializing in only listing the keywords instead of the art. In both cases the asterisk * (“anything can go here”) operator will be near-mandatory to find something.
^ You can further filter the results by removing existing-but-unused ones with images.gt:0 cuz there tends to be so many unused ones that they spam up the results.

Tags are not to be used as substitutes for galleries, ie. not for things only one person thinks about. Sure, people might realize they care about something only after seeing there’s a tag for it, but for something like this I’d only go to the effort to start tagging it if there’s a sign that it matters at all. Hence, asking in this thread.

That’s only one of several reasons a post might not have been replied to. Anyway, I might…

This is true. But it doesn’t mean that you have to propose each new tag in this thread. If the tag is obviously useful and directly describes something in the image (is not opinion-based), you can just create it. I created few tags myself, some of them now have over 2000 images, some of them have only few images.

There’s only so many distinct colours that will not break eyes and work on both dark and light theme. Species tags for background elements would be so very wasteful.
