If it isn’t clear of Twilight Sparkle it’s drew as an alicorn or unicorn (Like a bust drawing where you can’t see her midsection or wings) should it be tagged “Unicorn” or “Alicorn”?
 
On that note, does the “Macro” tag applies when a character is visibly macro or when the character it’s already a macro?
 
Ex: An Orchid’s (A macro pony) image that has no visible indication it’s a macro should be tagged macro?

Apologies for the great wall of text :p
 
@Brainless-Mind  
Nah. Having “cutie mark” for cases where they’re simply present would be useless. I know that’s a very common misuse of the tag, and maybe it should be cleaned up sometime, but it’s still more useful as-is.
 
@Algebroot Neogears  
The mecha ponies we saw in Pony Life are just robot ponies, and I think deserve at least an implication. However, there’s a few old non-Pony Life images that have the tag that may not be robots. Perhaps split the tag and have a new “mecha pony (pony life)” tag imply robot pony?
 
@Knight of the Raven  
Added descriptions to “palindrome get” and the related “index get” to clarify. Not super useful, but “fun” tags like don’t do much harm.
 
@saby  
Such a tag would be extremely useful for filtering purposes IMO.
 
@Knight of the Raven  
Agreed with LightningBolt that the definition should be changed so that “duo” and “shipping” are not mutually exclusive. As far as non-English vulgarity goes, I think that probably warrants the tag.
 
@Background Pony #52BA  
The definitions in Princess Luna’s reply are probably the ideal case, but it doesn’t look like anybody is following them. These tags need massive cleaning up.
 
@Background Pony #7C7A  
We probably don’t need separate tags for the direction the character is looking in. I imagine it would be too hard to enforce, even with a definition. They should be merged into another tag. As you said replying to Midday Shine though, there are a lot of different ways to look to the side, some of which may warrant their own tags. If so, tags need to be cleaned up and given definitions.
 
@Background Pony #84F6  
Seems reasonable. They’ve been merged into “daringsub”, which has been given a description and implications.
 
@Markiz93  
Added the “pony life” implication to every tag that implies “my little pony: pony life”.
 
@Brainless-Mind  
I gave them descriptions that include warnings about the other tag. Also added “clothes” as an implication of “transforming clothes”.
 
@Background Pony #52BA  
“human ponidox” applies to EQG as well as non-EQG humans. Also added the implication to “anthro ponidox”.
 
@Background Pony #7B7A  
I haven’t come to any conclusions since the last time you asked. Have you tried making a new thread for this yet? Copying and pasting your question into the same few threads many times won’t get many new people to see it.
 
@Background Pony #84F6  
“equestria girls, human coloration”, at least for now, is for humanoid characters with human skin tones but with a clear connection to EQG. Again, as Princess Luna, this may change soonish.
 
@Brainless-Mind  
Honestly, a new tag may not be necessary to create if a tag for it doesn’t exist already.
 
@Background Pony #84F6  
“enby” is not a commonly-used tag, so I just retagged all the images under it to “nonbinary”.
 
@Background Pony #52BA  
To me, all the images under “gothic” just look like goths and not like any other meaning of the word, so cleaning up or aliasing may be needed for that tag.
 
@lincolnbrewsterfan  
I’m hesitant since implications for sonas isn’t something we do and may dilute the meaning of “ponified” a bit.
 
@Background Pony #84F6  
Maybe not, since “wip” suggests that the image has or will be completed, while “unfinished art” doesn’t. Tough to see how they’re used in practice though, and I’m sure lots of WIPs get abandoned.
 
@FliegerFaustToP47  
For Twilight, don’t add “unicorn” or “alicorn” if it’s not obvious, and similarly don’t add “macro” if there’s no sense of scale.
 
@NightStalker  
Seems reasonable, but I’m hesitant to set the implication and add “equestria girls” to CHS images en masse since I’m not sure if the EQG tags will be redefined in the near future, as mentioned earlier.

Thanks for the help regarding the ‘cutie mark’ tag and ‘clothing transformation vs. transforming clothes.’
 
As for pony/hippogriff hybrids, I don’t know if a tag currently exists for that one.

This talk just reminded me: what’s the difference between ponysona and self insert ?
 
If, say, a user named IWTCIRD drew and uploaded a picture of oc:iwtcird, it’d be both ponysona and self insert, but if someone else drew oc:iwtcird, it’d only be ponysona? Is that the difference? And one of the reasons ponysona doesn’t imply self-insert, even though that’s literally what they are from my understanding?
 
(I’m just being cheeky with the hypothetical name, I know that only a few ponysonas are that kind of self insert.)
 
@Litrojia  
No apologies needed towards me, this wall of text comes from answering all the requests tha had been pending for up to three weeks, haha!
 
Thanks for the descriptions. I feel several more tags could use descriptions—although I don’t have any in mind right now—especially that Derpibooru is quite international. Not everyone is fluent enough with English, or at least English internet culture and terms, to be absolutely certain of what a tag really means.
 
Most of the time, I only get a vague idea from looking at what showed up under the tag I’m unsure about, which obviously isn’t foolproof.

@Knight of the Raven  
Self-insert means you put yourself (to some degree) into a work through the expy of a specific character. It doesn’t have to be an original character either, I’ve come across plenty of fics with a self-insert Hermione. The term isn’t totally neutral, since if a character comes off as an obvious self-insert, maybe because it seems out of place in the setting, or because the work it’s in seems to coincide with the creator’s private fantasies, it’s rather cringey.
 
Ponysona is when you design a pony character based on yourself.
 
A ponysona is only a self-insert when being used as one.

What exactly is the difference between gallus the bantam cawk and gallus has a tiny dick?

@Litrojia  
Both unfinished and not finished yet are already aliases of wip. And on that note, “w.i.p” is an alias but the correct “w.i.p.” is not.

@saby  
Thanks for the thorough explanation!
 

 
I thought about writing this in this thread instead, but it’s probably better suited here.
 
Now that we actually have pegasus sisters—and protagonists at that—should Pipp Petals and Zipp Storm highjack pegacest? There would be (surprisingly) only 220 pictures to retag if that’s the case.
 
Or is pippzipp better? Yeah, not one week in and there’s already Princest is Wincest 2.0. It’s hilarious.
 
Or another name?
 
It’s probably unnecessary to change Flitter’s and Cloudchaser’s ship but, again, it’s only 220 pictures. So I guess there’s not too much cost to use that ‘opportunity’ (so to speak) if someone wanted it changed.

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.

Personally, I’d rather “pegacest” and “princest” be removed at this point. They’re very odd names and now we’re moving on to another generation where the “pegasi” and “princesses” will be completely different characters.  
“Pegacest” also relies on some very specific interpretations of canon.

Now that I think of it; Should the screencap from another series tag still exist? The only way I think it is used is if there is MLP stuff edited into the image, so it indirectly always needed to be coupled with the edit tag.
 
Another thing: Since the description of screencap mentions having to be official MLP content, does that mean game screencap and youtube screencap should also refer specifically to official MLP screencaps? It’s kind of unclear to me.

I just wonder where is the point of being chubby, and then not anymore. There is one user that keep adding this tag to characters that are definitely not chubby at all.

Or we make princest independent from which princesses are shipped with one another as long as they’re clearly from the same bloodline.

@LightningBolt  
I like pippzipp better too, but I thought I’d point out what I saw as an opportunity. Though Princess Luna makes a very good point here. G4 isn’t alone anymore.
 
I think we’re also supposed to discuss new ship names rather than someone going and making one up without feedback, but I forgot to mention that. If that’s the case, as I said, pippzipp works for me.
 
@Princess Luna  
Was this prompted by the inaugural pippzipp upload being tagged with princest, by any chance? The timing checks out, haha. And proves your point.
 
@Pulse Wave  
Would there be demand for the tag being used like this, though? Will there be people browsing for all princest ships, be it lunestia or pippzipp or whatever other royal sisters may show up in G5?
 

 
I need clarification about hats.
 

 
Epic Fails and Good Vibes; Spring Breakdown and I’m On A Yacht.Does Rainbow wear a baseball cap or just a cap in those? I’m not clear on the nuance between them in English.
