Background Pony #52BA
@TexasUberAlles
Well, there is a monster tag, but what would it even be, an imp? The lack of tail and the face shape makes me think it’s human, elf ears, claws for Spike and pony for Rarity.

The hand thing is seen in certain styles of purely human characters, purple skin and fangs are superficial details. We have “tailed humanization” and the same with wings and horns as well, so it’s not like “human” is restricted to perfectly realistic mundane humans as we know them.
@Background Pony #52BA
Otherwise yes, but “pony” is incorrect for Rarity. “Pony” is only for pony-shaped ponies.

Really, I’m surprised - I was only uncertain about Spike. (He could have also been plantigrade anthro, no tail, human facial structure).
I’m not seeing anything about Rarity that’s sufficiently nonpony in that pic. Her foreleg is a hoof (if anthro, that would be arm hooves), we can’t see her rear legs to tell if they have a bipedal- or quadrupedal-favoring shape, no breasts are visible, the artist rarely draws anthro (at least, using pics on Derpibooru as a metric) and tends to give their ponies human shoulders and shorter necks, even in pics that are clearly quadrupedal, and has drawn (explicit) >>2436469 that design of Spike with a clearly pony Rarity in another pic. It’s by these factors that I didn’t have any question that she was drawn as a pony. What are you seeing that is anthro-shaped?

We tag character species on this site. Is your rationale ‘but everyone knows he’s a bunny and his name even contains that info’? If it’s not, I’m actually interested to hear it.

Rarity’s short neck, shoulder girdle, upper arms and back anatomy are all clearly human. Her bottom could be either, and since the thighs aren’t visible it could go either way there.
I look at that upper back and 100% expect boobs on the other side. I didn’t see the forelimb though, from humerus down it’s pony enough that I can call this “semi-anthro” and go home.

Okay, apparently derpi logged me off for some reason and just stuck me as “Background Pony #258F”.
So trying this again:

So whatever happened to the Sparity tag which suffered a decrease to 7586 (used to be above the 7600 mark) and there is not changes or anything that indicates tag removal.

Is there a tag for arbitrary-objects-over-anatomical-details censor?
Such as here, the way the stars overlap makes it clear they’re not meant to be worn pasties, but the sort of non-diegetic stars titty rags porn magazines and striptease show ads etc. put on the nipples and other ‘critical bits’ in post to be acceptable on store shelves and notice boards.

Probably out of place question, but, like, are the ratings and tags affected by hypothetical scenarios that aren’t in the picture but can be assumed by context?
I ask because I planned to draw a WW1 pic that’s kinda safe but I’m not sure if the context of the great war and just how many died for the pic of an exhausted pony to happen (Passchendaele) changes tags to grimdark and implied death or something.

First degree implications are tagged and usually don’t affect rating.
An exhausted pony, even if bloodied and surrounded by destruction, doesn’t warrant “grimdark” just because there’s an implication of combat and war and by implied war, oodles of death and suffering. If the injuries are grievous, “semi-grmidark” may be called for.
Mulan has a scene of a razed village’s smouldering ruins that implies a whole lot of death and destruction, but since it’s ‘clean’ without blood or corpses, it’s fine for a family-friendly Disney film.
