Question : Why is Cascada's tag green and not blue?


Was there a poll on this name?

Because if someone thinks up a name for a character and simply slaps that name as a tag on pictures of that character just like this, they can't expect that name to be officially recognised and therefore turned blue.

This isn't how naming ponies works. And this has never been, not even on /co/ 10 years ago. No matter how hard certain anons try.

I’ve seen some tags that start out green but become blue after a bit. Idk how

There's a thread for that. You go there, report a tag that's green although it should be blue, and if it's a legitimate name, the mods will take care of that.

(In other words, I don't think you can bypass the naming/name-tagging system by thinking up a name, slapping tags on pics and then reporting that tag to the mods. I'm pretty sure they will check who added the tags. And if they don't, they really should.)

Yes, that's where the wiki holds polls for pony names. They have to do it on "neutral ground" because fan sites like Derpibooru aren't allowed as sources (remember the MLP:FiM Wiki copied Wikipedia's ruleset).

Usually, new names from the polls in this thread will be made blue a few days after the polls are closed.

If the name comes from a different source, e.g. the IDW comics or the Reddit polls for the wiki, this won't happen automatically. In this case we'll have to take care of this ourselves.

Step 1: You go to this thread.

Step 2: You post the name tag that's green when it should be blue. Not just the name, but the tag with the link. Makes things a lot easier for the team.

Step 3: (I hope) they'll check whether that's a legit name. (As I wrote, if you come up with a name, slap that name on a couple pics as a tag with no votes and nothing, it is not a legit name.)

Step 4: If it is a legit name, they will change the tag to blue.

Good advice: If you've discovered that a background pony that's still unnamed here has a name on the wiki, and you tag the according pics here with that name, and you want that name tag to be blue, add a link as proof that it wasn't you who came up with the name.
