Thanks for the help everyone.
I'll comment on LightningBolt's point. As a show accurate 'kitbasher,' I agree that thorough tagging is extremely useful when it comes to art references. Most of the ones I use for my drawings and vectors are found thanks to tags (say, for example, grin
combined can make me find this
, even if Trixie's smirk ends up on, say, Rainbow instead in my final picture), while the rest comes from browsing the wiki's
galleries by character.
I thought for a moment that it'd be odd to tag horn
on pictures of unicorns, pegasi and alicorns. I mean, that's implied by their species, right? Unless you add something like broken horn
. So it 'should' only be there when the horn or the wings are the focus or an important point of the picture.
Izzy Moonbow on her own wouldn't warrant horn
but her tennis ball misadventures would, basically.
Then I remembered said art references, and that someone might
want to find pictures of horns across different species. For a particularly grim hunter's trophies, perhaps? Or just to decide for themselves which design looks better for their OC. So you'd need to tag unicorns with horn
, and the kirins too, and so on, so that they all show up under that tag when someone's browsing it.
I feel clothes may be a bit messier, seeing as that can imply a lot
more tags on pictures… Like, 'all of sudden it warrants wall of tags
' kind of a lot. And I'm still suspicious of magical geodes
, considering how small yet ubiquitous they are… I kept mistaking Rainbow's for a wristwatch the whole time I watched Spring Breakdown
, too. On both her casual and singing outfits.
But I guess they still should be tagged, if only for the sake of art references. "Oh, so that's
where she keeps her geode on this
Speaking of the cruise outfits
, would there be any point in differentiating between the 'casual outfits'
and 'party dresses?'
Considering there's a whole whopping 39 results compared to all the Spring Breakdown
-based pictures at the moment of writing this, probably not…
But Rainbow's singing dress
seems to be very
popular, however badly tagged it is—several uploads don't even have dress
for crying out loud—so I'm still curious about this…
Come to think of it, cruise outfit
itself might need a description at some point. With G5 around the corner, there may be many people who won't be familiar with either Spring Breakdown
or I'm on a Yacht
I was browsing the site for uploads to tag cruise outfit (and more) on, and I stumbled upon these three pictures
. Because they somehow ended up under my 'NOT edit' and 'NOT screencap' search.
Beyond adding the likes of edit
, what I'm actually curious about is the line between artists and editors. Should these three be retagged editor:princesslunadashmlp
or is artist:princesslunadashmlp
actually correct here?
I'd tag myself as an editor if I did something like that, but I feel I should be more cautious about retagging someone else as such.
