I mean, I see literally no reason why that zebra pattern would not count as zebra pattern for even the finickiest of nitpickers, and I say this as a very finicky nitpicker.

I have a question. Why can’t I add the “Venus Spring having a bad time”(spoilered because most of the images under this tag are pretty messed up) on this image?: https://derpibooru.org/images/2724941
Did the person who posted the image just felt there was no need for the tag or is this a glitch? Forgive me if I’m asking this in the wrong forum 😓 I’m just curious why I can’t add a tag on the image 😓

Considering that the image was recently targeted by a tag troll, the tags probably got partly or full locked. Report the image with the tag you wish to add/restore so a staff member can do that for you.

Please alias [higurashi no naku koro ni](/tags/higurashi no naku koro ni) and [](/tags/when the cicadas cry). Reason: First is transliteration of japanese title, second is translated title of same anime.

i just had a thought, but since we already have a “Royal sisters” tag for G4 (Celestia and Luna), and G5 also has it’s own pair of royal sisters (Pipp Petals and Zipp Storm), do you think that we should make a tag for the g5 royal Sisters?

So, what exactly do the ‘Male’ and ‘Female’ tags represent on this site? On some images they’re used to represent gender, while on some images they’re used to represent biological sex. In fact on some (solo) pics of trans characters, both of the tags are used at the same time.
I don’t mean to offend anyone with this question, I just want to know what the tags are outlined as and hopefully get a bit more consistency.

AFAIK they’re used to denote just sex, because gender identity is rarely possible to deduce from an image, and users mainly care about the physicality of characters when they’re looking to search or filter.
If a character is transgender and has no permanent changes to their male/female/intersex body, I don’t see any reason why they shouldn’t be tagged both $trans_theirgender and $their_sex. Single characters should never have multiple sex tags.
As for permanent changes to bodies, I’ll say nothing because it’s a more complicated thing and I have next to no experience about that. I don’t think we have too many examples of, say, cisgender-and-female characters who’ve had full bilateral mastectomy. (Personally I think such a case should be tagged “female” and “amputee” and probably something specific to the acquired lack of breasts.)
