General Tag Discussion

The description of lilypad attempts to link to lily pad (equestria girls), but the link is broken, because the parentheses are unencoded. This is not the first time such a thing happens. Someone should grep all the tag descriptions for characters that should be encoded, but aren’t.

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.
Brainless-Mind

I guess so? The only thing I’m left wondering is if there isn’t some other tag that I’m not aware of that identifies tail-aware clothing design. How little “tail hole” was used gives me pause.
If there is a tag like that, I have no knowledge of one.

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 have a doubt on the signature and watermark tags:
  • Is the signature tag used when any artist’s name present in the image is written by hand or with a mouse?
  • Is the watermark tag used when there’s an artist’s logo or a typed name?

I’m not an authority on this but I believewatermark is used when the artist posts a stamp on their artwork, so to speak. Signature would be more an artist signing their artwork, like a cursive name in a corner or something.
When in doubt, I’d use both tags. I usually don’t differentiate them so I tend to use both tags to be on the safe side.
Also: not confirmed, but a watermark typically marks more of a picture than a signature would, from what I’ve seen.

A watermark is a partially transparent overlay over a picture, that can be a signature, an url, a logo, or even a pattern.
A signature is the artist’s personal name mark on a piece. It can be hand-written separately each time, or stamped in physically (East Asian artists have traditionally used name stamps to sign their works) or digitally. I think technically even a personal non-verbal logo can be considered a signature.

Thank you. That’s specifically better. :)
Maybe those descriptions can be placed in their tag descriptions? I think it would really be helpful in tagging appropriately. Thanks saby. :3

Staff will investigate. Since it looks very much a case of vandalism, staff will also deal with restoring the tags.
Next time, you can just report the image.

Same thing as with other body part tags. If it’s prominently in the picture, it’s good to tag. If it’s a minor detail or incidental, probably better to not tag.
