'blinking' should imply 'eyes closed'

Probably unnecessary. Blinking mostly makes sense with animation, and out of 1198 pictures tagged with blinking only 27 do not also have the animated tag. And most of those blinks should be winks instead, or removed entirely.

Wouldn't that mean it makes more sense if most blinking images are animated? Then you can see that at a point the eyes are closed. And fixing the tags on those 27 only 2 actually had blinking in them(the rest were either winking, neither, or eyes half/fully closed in a screencap, which afaik are tagged lidded eyes/eyes closed respectively since that's what they are like at the moment.) and the 2 left also had closed eyes.

I don't know. Animated entries are going to be buried in tags if we start frame-by-frame tagging.

Wink → one eye closed I can understand since it is sometimes difficult to know whether a static picture is showing a pony who is winking, or a pony who is keeping one eye closed for whatever reason. I usually go by wink if the character is in eye contact with someone (including the viewer), and one eye closed when not.

The act of blinking includes both open and closed eyes, true. But it feels a bit like having implications for car → wheel, tire, windshield, door, etc. Blinking already covers both states.

A bit it depends on how the tagging system is to be used. Do we tag everything in a picture, or do we try to limit things to relevant tags (however we determine them)? Celestia knows there are hundreds of superfluous tags. May she forgive me, for certainly I have also been guilty of using them.

Offtopic, where is that avatar from, if I may ask? I smile whenever I see it.

I will say you do make a good point. What to tag is a big gray area, technically every article of clothing someone is wearing in an image could be tagged but most either don't bother or tag it when it's one of the few things in the picture or if it's an important part of the image. I've done tagging like that as well.

I still think it should be implied since by definition blinking involves closing your eyes, but I see where you're coming from, over-tagging can be a problem for some tags and especially since it might only last a frame or two. Wouldn't mind it either way.

And thank you about the avatar!~ It's not from anything, I made it. Partially because I couldn't find the kind of thing I wanted.
