AFAIK “alternate dimension” is a special location within the same fiction: things like hammerspace, bags of holding, supernatural planes where deities or magical beings dwell, time compression chambers, time travel shenanigans etc.
“Alternate universe” is a different fiction that shares major elements, like the characters or the setting, with another fiction. Things like “MLP:FiM, but the Apple clan never existed”, or “MlP:FiM, but everyone is humans in a coffee shop”.
For extra fun, if EQG world never interacted with Equestria in-story, EQG would count as an “alternate universe”. But they do interact, so EQ worldG is technically an “alternate dimension”, albeit one with inexplicably close correspondence between the human and pony populations of these dimensions.

is there really a need for the various cum inside (character) tags? shouldn’t the combination of creampie and (character) tags suffice, especially for the ones with low usages? it just seems like bloat to me

Agree with “seems like bloat”. “Cum inside Rainbow Dash” was created 11 years ago as the counterpart to “IWTCIRD”. All the rest are ~10-20% of the population and almost exclusively recent snowclones populated mainly by one users:
  • Fluttershy created 4 years ago, established 5 months ago
  • Luna, Rarity, Twilight Sparkle created 3 years ago, established 2 months ago
  • Cadance, Celestia, Chrysalis, Starlight Glimmer, Flurry Heart created 2 months ago…
For comparison’s sake, “fluttershy, creampie, sex” gets 1980+ results and is largely relevant despite only being 3 terms. “fluttershy, creampie, sex, -butterscotch, -futa on male” gets 1900.

Branding - it’s a branding process, or just a brand?
If the latter, then all the art from Dashite Brand should be tegged as “branding”?

This discussion is about the “cum inside $CHARACTER” tags. “Snowclone” is a linguistic term for a phrasal template.

It turns out we have a flutters tag. I think it should only be used on images that contain the word “flutters”. Do you agree? Currently it’s being used seemingly randomly.

Not as such.
But, if the screencap is a uniquely copyrightable work, and you made it, then you absolutely are the artist. Let me know if that’s the case, and I’ll help you get your tag set up. And, if there’s other artist’s assets in the screencap, things seem to work best of you also tag them. We’ve had some games that had a lot of fanwork in them that didn’t tag the actual artists and sometimes that has gone badly.
Beyond that, I know that’s not a simple answer and might not be helpful. But, in case it helps you narrow down how you want to tag your own works based on what others have done with past tagging, we’ve got 670 images tagged game screencap AND artist:*. Perhaps some of those might help you figure out how you’d prefer to tag your images?

Absolutely not ! Mare (like stallion, colt, and filly) means a horse, a pony, and a zebra.
Currently an anthro, a human, and a semi-anthro can’t be any of those, which is just wrong (look how e621 is doing it), but that’s what it is. Remove it from them.

I often tag anthro with those tags, because I figure the only one they shouldn’t be put in is full human images (or images involving other species, blah blah)

I mean certainly if you search for anthro stallion on google you’ll get exactly that…
Though I think it’s one of those unwritte rules that the tag here at least is used for the regular ponies.

Agree - as to my opinions, for the first one, yes, for the second one, conditionally yes (on the condition that “pony” is changed from a species tag to one equivalent to “anthro”, “semi-anthro”, and the like - IOW it’s used like the “feral” tag is used on e621)
