They’re unnecessary, mostly. Think hard, why would you need to know if any of those things are in an image? Mostly when they’re the focus, right, like the only thing in the picture.

Not really. I mean, why do people get so upset over tagging an objective thing.
 
Like, if you don’t enjoy it, then fine. No one is telling you to do it.
 
But acting like they should go away or that it’s somehow an admin issue is rather extreme and personal.
 
I mean if you things ‘wings’ is worthy of calling admins on then the issue maybe it’s the tag.
 
I’m gonna keep tagging wings and horn in images where the characters has wings or a horn. If that upsets you then maybe you shouldn’t read the tags.

No please don’t. That’s a stupid argument.
 
Years and years ago people kept calling pony and unicorn and female redundant and useless tags.
 
And now look where we are.

Correct. In the beginning, Safe wasn’t even a tag, it was implied by the absence of a rating. Things change over time, and if the biggest issue someone has with an objective tag is “i don’t wanna use it” then they can just, not use it.

unless it’s extreme
 
If litterally over 65% of the site in order to account for less than 3% of it isn’t “extreme” then what WOULD you consider extreme?

No. Because I literally meant tagging things like ‘eyes’ or ‘ears’ or every single body part in an image. I don’t need to tag Rainbow Dash’s left nostril in an image where it is visible, but tagging her wings is fine because they don’t always appear, are unique enough to not be in every image on the site, and can be useful for looking for just images with wings in them.
 
I know I often look up specific objective things like that. That is not useless, and at worst they are harmless.
 
Like I don’t get the whole argument of “well it would have to be tagged too much so why tag it at all” like, so? Gotta start somewhere. You don’t wanna tag them, fine, no one is making you. There is not a rule for or against them.

Spread wing, large wings, small wings, butt wings, missing wing, wingless, prosthetic wing, magic wings. These are all useful pieces of information that better define a picture, make them memorable and can help a search for them later. The mere presence of wings? Not to much, they’re in nearly every image a pegasus, griffon, hippogriff or dragon appears in. The only useful purpose of the wings tag at present is making those tags that imply it more readily available if one is trying to find them.

Wow it’s like it’s not useless at all then.
 
Anyway, all this arguing should move into it’s own thread if it to continue so as to stop clogging up this one.

Not it’s not. Get over yourself. They literally hurt no one.
There is zero rules against ‘redundant’ tagging unless it’s extreme. There is nothing extreme about this or ‘wings’.
If you see an image tagged ‘wings’ and get thrown into a violent rage, then the issue is you.
 
We have banned people for overtagging.

Sorry for only picking this up now, but I was at work or asleep for most of today.  
@cheezedoodle  
Some pokemon characters imply Pokemon, for example. I’d say if it’s on a hundred or more pics, that’s when to start considering an implication for another series.
 
I’m not sure if pokémon is the best example of this specific standard, because to my knowledge the significant majority Pokémon tags on this site imply pokémon, and the bulk of them have single-digit image counts.
 
@Zeb  
If you think it’s fine to just put this here, I could just sort the tags I’ve been thinking of by image count and leave the rest up to the mods? There are. Um. A fair few of them.

Question about this NSFW pic:  
>>2099360  
||  
Technically it shows a bit of Applejack’s and Sunset’s pussy, but so blurry that it doesn’t precisely fit the definition of explicit  
“Genitals (penises, vaginas/vulvas, balls, etc.) including any detailed visuals of them”  
So I went with questionable and didn’t add the appropriate genital tags. Or should it be explicit and have the tags, even if it’s just a small pixelated area?

Oh someone saw the 69% damage indicator and…
 
Yeaaaah.. that doesn’t mean to add the tag.. pfft..  
I honestly can’t tell what’s going on in the image which is why I said all tags should be checked just to make sure everything is correct
 
Edit: oh wait, 69 is an alias of 69 position… Still don’t need a useless 69 tag cause of 69% damage

No, on cloud does not necessarily mean they are SITTING on the cloud. They could also be doing nsfw stuff on it or anything else
 
sitting on cloud should maybe imply on cloud, though

The feral tag is a mess right now. It’s a mix of two definitions, non-sapient and non-anthro, the latter of which probably doesn’t need a tag unless we want to tag nearly every FIM character as feral.

It’s always a mess because some idiot in furries applied “feral” to “base non-humanoid form” instead of “A WILD ANIMAL” long ago and people keep using that. Either way, on Derpi it means the latter - that is, “wild animal”.

Word Bug
The latest design of Fluttershy is turning into a little bit of a mess.
 

 
Should these be tagged metalshy or flutterpunk? From the video, I got the impression it was a death metal band she was going to see, but people seem to be insistent about tagging this new style with a punk tag. The vibe I’m getting is that people just don’t know what a punk look is.
 
EDIT: Oh, and add usual rant about people tagging safe images with breasts and girls with C cups as busty*.
