The fact that some of them describe multiple OCs is irrelevant, as their descriptions only belong to one specific OC AFAIK. The description for Aero refers to a character we'll likely never be seeing again and is owned by an artist who refuses to be associated with the site, I still believe at least that one should have the description reset and implications removed.

@Wiimeiser
No I mean the descriptions include more than one entries. It'd be helpful to know which entry you propose should be removed in such cases where multiple ocs with the same name are described.

Some of these images appear to be "historically significant", but some of them seem to be random, at least to me. I think it's at least partially opinion-based. It might be better to convert it to a gallery.

The hoof hold and dexterous hooves tags seem to both mean the same thing in practice: "hooves holding objects as if hands were holding them".

The hoofsies tag is simultaneously used for the hoof-stamps from Coloratura, the word "hoofsies", the hoof version of footsies or just hooves being present on the image. At least the latter doesn't belong here.

Many of the marking tags are duplicated, mostly because of "marking" vs "markings" versions. For example facial markings / face markings / facial marking / face marking

EDIT: I'm surprised to find only two tags for items attached to hooves: hoof attachment and hoof strap . Are there more common tags for this that I didn't think of?

Not a Llama - Happy April Fools Day!

never big enough
What's the policy again on tagging pictures for character traits that are intended by the artist, but not necessarily visible in the pic itself?

Specifically I'm thinking of this artist who draws humanized Scootaloo with a prosthetic leg. For example, here: >>2557094 Hence the "prosthetic leg" and "amputee" tags. Makes sense.

Then there's:

Same artist, same interpretation of Scootaloo, and the artist added the "prosthetic leg" and "amputee" tags themselves. But the prosthetic isn't visible in the pic because Scoots is wearing long pants that cover it. So should the tags be on there or not?

IMO on the par of tagging "lesbian" on a random solo picture because you personally think the character swings that way, or "marriage" on a random solo picture of adult Mrs Cake just because she's canonically in matrimony.

Tag what's in the image, not meta info about the artist's headcanon/original canon.

@radpanic
So should the tags be on there or not?

Nnnope. The primary purpose of tags is so that those looking for certain aspects of images can find them easily, and so that those who don't want to see certain aspects can avoid them; if those aspects aren't in the image itself, someone who wanted them would have no use for it and someone who didn't want them would have no argument with it.

Unless an artist tells us to take down tag descriptions, I'd rather not set the precedent of doing so. Artists sometimes do rescind takedowns, and at least for those OCs, images from other artists are still present on the site (we don't do takedowns of OCs). I removed the broken image links though.

@Background Pony #52BA
I see value in it, despite it being curated mostly by one person.

@Background Pony #7C7A
The impression I get on the hoof hold tags is that "hoof hold" refers to objects being held with hooves in any ways, while "dexterous hooves" refers to objects being held or manipulated (ie. playing a guitar or using a keyboard) in ways that hooves shouldn't be able to do but hands could. If that seems reasonable, I may update their definitions to make that clearer.

On "hoofsies", the first definitely warrants it, and second probably. Third unlikely, fourth definitely not.

Those marking tags should be aliased.

On your last comment, I don't know of any synonymous or similar tags.

@radpanic
The others are correct, and that image should not have those tags. While we have Rule #2's clause on artist's intent, that only applies when something is visible but ambiguous in an image, not for cases where external context is required.

The hoof hold and dexterous hooves tags seem to both mean the same thing in practice: "hooves holding objects as if hands were holding them".
Yeah, I'd have thought "hoof hold" would be for the general case of holding things between hooves, not hand-like.

"dexterous hooves" is for more than just holding things, though.

Many of the marking tags are duplicated, mostly because of "marking" vs "markings" versions. For example facial markings / face markings / facial marking / face marking
Please feel free to make a thread listing any obvious duplicates so the appropriate mods can set up aliases.

I got quite a few Hetalia characters. Unnamed remain:
- angel facing human RD
- the trio beneath them
- the flustered short haired ch nearby
- "I am a pretzel"
- poofy lolita dress with fish on head behing large Russia and Japan
- sparkly blond bastard next to her
- crowned ch "Gilbert is best pony" (might be artist avatar)
- cloak "…"
- FIRST SQUAD
- and the entire bottom slice

@Litrojia
Yes, descriptions would be helpful. There are pictures tagged with "dexterous hooves" that don't match your description. But if this description is not formal, it can't really be enforced.

"Hoofsies" could also use a description, so it can be cleaned up.
Background Pony #ED18
I would again like to request help tagging some characters:


Everyone is tagged I think except for:
- any Danganronpa character (the source tagged danganronpa but no names)
- if there's a tag more specific than "pokemon trainer" for the hat-wearing character in the top-left: Pokemon wikis identify them as "Green" or "Blue" depending on region and I didn't see such a tag
- the pink-haired character at the far left, above Fenneko Natsuki (DDLC)
- the brown-haired and green-haired characters at the very top, immediately right of the artist's name
- the dark-haired, drooly-mouthed character below aforementioned green-haired character, to the right of Hatsune Miku
- the purple-haired, drooly-mouthed character at the far right, below Fionna and above Retsuko Yuri (DDLC)
- which lion that is :P has been tagged Nala

The two humans in the middle are the artist and their partner.

Thanks in advance~
