too bad the gay/lesbian tag descriptions cover what gay couple and lesbian couple are trying to convey, that’s why the latter tags are considered redundant
This^
People who go to these tags are already under the implication that the characters involved are in a relationship, so having tags made to say that the characters are a gay/leabian couple is really redundant

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 miss the show so much
I can’t report a tag, or tag change history, so I’ll try doing it this way.
The shipping tag ship:combow is under a tag fight between BPs and non-BPs and it’s been going on for about 5 days now. A BP (or BPs?) remove the tag, and registered users put it back. Repeat.
I don’t know about the ship, but this kind of tag fighting can’t go on.

What would the tag be for a conveniently placed object be? I’m thinking about it in regards to a character being explicitly nude, but luckily there’s an item in the way covering anything naughty. I couldn’t conjure up anything that I could find being actively used in the tag search.

Hot take about tags: I think that adding some tag like “equestria girls drama” should add just the “drama” tag by default. That’s all for me, have a good day/night.

I need some clearing up with the Adopted Offspring tag
Most of the images under that tag refer to canon characters adopting a fan made oc as their child, however im also seeing the tag being used for when a canon character adopts ANOTHER canon character as their child (EG like the recent images of Rainbow’s parents adopting Scootaloo as their own daughter)
Should the tag be used for examples like too, oit should it just stick towards oc characters being adopted like the majority of the “offspring” related tags?

dot eyes (literally just a solid dot, does not have to be circular, may have a tiny bit of eyelashes):
beady eyes (eyes without sclera or pupil, but still have catchlights to appear rounded and shiny):
I see many posts that are currently tagged “beady eyes” that I would say are wrong; some are “dot eyes”, some are uncertain other style (skin-colored sclera within defined eye outline, dot-like but outlined, larger than a dot usually is considered)
It has been suggested to merge them before, but Princess Luna felt they were distinct.
I don’t know how you’d tell if a closed eye is a beady eye?

This type of eye seems to be somewhat common.
I don’t know how you’d tell if a closed eye is a beady eye?
Though looking at it again, while distinct, it’s not really obvious. Perhaps more obvious when you have seen other related images and they do have beady eyes.

You could … or someone could … begin sorting those through the Artist Aliasing thread. A few at a time though please - there’s already a giant list in one post there that I’ve been working.
But, that might be a way to resolve it, if someone wanted to go through those and match sources (where available) or upload date ranges … clues like that.
If you mention that they’re from this list, I’ll make sure to check IPs and FPs to try to line up uploaders to see if they’re common.
plus i don’t know which one should be the primary tag
We could make a new tag for them - “The Artist Of A Million Aliases”.
