I'm a little confused about the stocking feet tag. At first I thought it was stockings with individual toes, but the way I'm seeing it get used, it seems like it's just people wearing socks and stockings with no shoes.

Is it possible to have a comma in a tag (via escaping it, quoting it, etc.)? It seems like it's not possible. In this particular case, I'm tagging art about a fanfic whose title has a comma in it. For now I'm just omitting the comma.

Why do the aliases "solo female explicit" and "solo male explicit" even exist? I mean, come on, who's gonna be using those as tags?

They never questioned their existence as tags, only aliases. And aliases have a function that non-existent tags don't have, so arguing the non-existence of aliases is pointless.


@Blissful690
A lot of mispelled tag names are kept as aliases because they're so common that it saves the staff a lot of effort and busywork. Some typos are very typical, and forgetting or missing the comma between the extremely common and very important tags "solo female/male" and "explicit" is one of those.

I just said they were aliases before my time. That means I know nothing about them.

It would be as simple as 'people used them, so we aliased them'. Not exactly a big shocker.

Given that many tags imply wings and horn, I think the prevailing sentiment among staff is to tag them where applicable.

A new tag for different dresses would probably be useful, though I'm not up on the newer EQG stuff and don't know what it could be called. Also, I don't expect another use of the tag "cruise outfit" will ever come up, but if one does, we can revisit this.

I think those edits have some artistic value, so I don't mind the artist tag there.

@Brainless-Mind
I figured I'd look around to see if any zebra/kirin hybrid OC creators had a name for them to use, and I discovered that we already have the tag zebra kirin. I made this the official tag for this use.

@Markiz93
I'm hesitant here. While those are wagons, it feels excessive to tag images of interiors where it's not visibly a wagon as "wagon".

Thanks for the answers.

I'm not up to date on Equestria Girls either, and I'm just not good with finding names. I imagine the very first outfits the characters wore in the titular first movie would have "original" somewhere in the tag and that's it.

I do know that rarity peplum dress is a thing though (along with rarity's peplum dress, which may call for merging or aliasing), so there's precedent for giving Rainbow's singing dress its specific tag. And some demand, presumably. Dress seems popular, at least from the comments I got.

Edit: Speaking of this version of Rainbow Dash, I've been stumped on something for a long time. Is she sporting a braid or a headband? Seems pretty clear to me that she's braided her hair, what with the way it looks and the matching colors, but headband gets roughly three times as many results as braid; including my own picture, which is what made me notice this in the first place.



Another inquiry. I was browsing "equestria girls,armor" when these showed up.



…Am I missing something? Or should I go and remove the armor tag?

Ah, and as someone who keeps harping on you all about descriptions, I appreciate the very detailed one for solo female. I was confused as to why the second image didn't have that tag, but then I noticed "For safe-rated images, please just use solo instead." Thanks for the preemptive clear-up!
