The characters in Equestria Girls are, canonically, Human; aside from the aggravation of having to add tags to a bajillion images, is there any good reason not to just go with eqg human?

Technically, on this site, "Humanized, EQG" is a thing. If EQG are already human how do you humanize them?

So, EQG are not, as far as this site is concerned, "Human", as there are thousands of images where artists have imagined what the EQG characters would look like if they were humans.

I've noticed this myself.

I first read it on the 'humans' page from the Friendship is Magic Wikia.

Contrarywise, I mentioned this subject on this thread before and it received some interesting replies. Here, in spite of what the wikia says, the characters in the Equestria Girls dimension are not human and should be marked with the 'equestrian girls' tag unless they are portrayed as standard human beings.

Personally, I find it rather odd.

I mean, it seems kindasorta super obvious they're just Humans from a world where hominins got All The Colors instead of just earth tones; there's absolutely nothing to suggest they're anything else.

Notoriously Divine Tagger - Consistently uploads images above and beyond the minimum tag requirements. And/or additionally, bringing over the original description from the source if the image has one. Does NOT apply to the uploader adding several to a dozen tags after originally uploading with minimum to bare tagging.

Changing it requires some careful moves and planning.

@Markiz93
Eventually we're gonna have the G4 tag on lots of images. It's been a slowly creeping issue with things, that we started with only one gen to worry about, but now there's basically 3.

Also I think a tag macro/micro should imply both macro and micro.
I've seen that tag and wondered what it was for. Is it a categorical tag for any content with macro or micro, like an intensified "size difference" tag? If so, then the implication ought to be the other way around (but it's kind of pointless since macro || micro achieves the same searching and filtering purpose.)

Or, is it for when there's no point of reference, so maybe it's a normal size character and an abnormal size character but you can't tell which way (without external context/knowing the characters)?

For that matter, what differentiates "tiny" from "micro"? IMO, it's like the relation of "barefoot" to "foot fetish" or "open mouth" to "oral fixation"…a sense of "you can tell when you see it" that the content was thought up by someone rather more invested in the idea than usual.

("giant" is already aliased to "macro" but "tiny"/"tiny ponies" is not for "micro", and "pocket pony" implies nothing [maybe because it could be a normal pony in a giant's pocket, IDK]…)

All those cute tags can imply different cute levels, so no. They shouldn't be aliased.

although I'm probably biased because I love all those individual cute clarifications. Mostly cuteness overload and weapons-grade cute 😊

Yes, they should aliased. The intent might have been for them to be different levels, but in practice they all get used together and the subject matter is too vague for people to be in agreement. Several redundant "next level cute" tags have already been aliased into weapons-grade cute for that reason, but then people just made new ones and started the problem all over again.

Personally speaking, I'd prefer we alias all of it to cute since we can't seem to stop some overly-enthusiastic taggers from adding them to everything even mildly cute.

There should be some consideration for attempting to save "hnnng" because I believe it's been misused over the years. My understanding is that it was supposed to be used for pictures that literally featured a heart attack from cuteness like this:


The problem there is that it might be too far gone to save. Even if someone goes through and takes out all the examples that don't feature a cuteness-enduced death, the same sort of people who derailed the tag in the first place will likely do so again.

I can see your point. I love seeing all those separate ones, though (they're all on my watched tags list).

Plus you might prefer to use a specific cute tag that another might not describe specifically enough. They probably shouldn't be aliased.

At least I hope they won't be. c:

Don't apologize. From what I can tell, it's a subject that has become rather confusing on this site.

I like to think that the bugs will be ironed out one day, but until then, we'll have to sit tight.
