Can we please make a dedicated friendship is magic (series) tag? People will absolutely NOT. STOP. USING. the S1E1 tag for it, no matter how many times you explain it and no matter how many times you remove it. They just add it back and ignore your communication attempts.
And can we make it fast, like right now fast?
Or namespace all episodes with “episode:” and then ban everyone who still misuses it?

All of them? Five report slots aren’t going to be enough. And based on my past experience, rule 2 reports usually stay open for weeks. I understand there are far more important things to take care of, but that’s my experience.

Y’know, I’d be totally down with a tag for that. Tagging FIM is no longer the redundant tag it was back when that was pretty much the only thing being uploaded, and it’s pretty much the only series that doesn’t get its own tags.
Keeping with how other Gen tags are represented, would probably be my little pony: friendship is magic? Though other aliases could be added to help the auto-suggest. (Many are currently in my little pony)

The rule #2 reports that stay open for weeks are typically stuff like “this user is garbage at tagging altogether” or “they never tag X” or “they keep tag warring about Y”, which require a lot of bg work to address in a meaningful way. Although staff should be transferring the reports to their own accounts to free up the slots for the original reporting user…
Cases where users are misusing a specific tag are generally much quicker to deal with.

@Dragonpone
If you ask me, the whole my little pony tag should be just removed. It’s useless. You won’t find any other kinds of images here. Variants of it, like my little pony: friendship is magic could be useful, but the bare base tag isn’t.
@saby
I’ll see what I can do in case those problem users still continue their mistaggings. I’m dealing with two problematic users at the moment. One of them stays in complete radio silence, even when PM’d to.

You could also make just one report, and list the various accounts and a sampling of affected posts (especially if BPs), because they’re all connected to the same issue.

IMO crescent horn is for crescent-moon-esque forehead attachments. Because Luna.
I might describe your example as “sickle” or “crook” (as in the shepherd’s staff thing), or else, because they’re pretty specific and low-count, both it and heart horn could be lumped together in a less-specific tag that’s something like “original horn shape” do not steal

The hair flip tag feels a bit messy to me. The meaning most intuitive to me is when someone’s hair is flung through the air, such as >>2641645. However, a lot of the images under that tag are applied to the mane styles of reformed Starlight and Rarity, and it seems that may be a proper term for hair curls like that? If so, perhaps that should be reorganized into a different tag, though I question if that would be a useful or convenient tag.
Also, mane flip exists, and I imagine that should be aliased similar to alternate hairstyle/manestyle.

On the FIM tagging discussion, having separate episode and series tags and getting rid of the “my little pony” tag are reasonable ideas to me. I’ll just add that I think series tags starting with “my little pony:” are too wordy IMO. Even with shorter names as aliases, it just feels redundant to me. And then the spoiler tags get way too long without any aliases, at its most extreme stuff like spoiler:my little pony: make your mark chapter 4.

@Toastypk
Probably depends on what they’re called most often. Regardless, one should be aliased into the other. I haven’t watched anything with them, but I’d guess the full name should be the main tag unless the full name is hardly ever used. I’m thinking along the lines of character names, like how Zipp’s tag is “zipp storm” even when she’s called Zipp most of the time, but not “zephyrina storm” since that even fuller variant of her name is trivial.

That tag is so long that it doesn’t even fully display on my phone without zooming out.

The new set of Toola Roola tags still need to be blue tagged, but maybe that should move to the character-tag-fixing thread.

I’d love to have completely separate episode and series/franchise namespaces. We could then have episode:friendship is magic and series:friendship is magic. And no aliases, to prevent accidental mistaggings. You have to type the namespace first, to indicate which one you mean.

A bit of googling reveals Starlight’s forelock is indeed in a style that could be called “flipped bangs”. In interest of keeping the tag suitable for all species and bodyplans, “flipped bangs” is probably better than “flipped forelock”, but I’m not enthused about creating a whole new tag for a hairstyle element that only exists in one canon character.
So, I guess it’s time to go looking for non-Starlight examples.

Good question. The square muzzle style associated with stallions is way less cute, so using the rounded muzzle for stallions is not that rare.
