Excuse me but I mean to ask you something. How is non consensual sex considered as grimdark? Rape and grimdark are two different meanings. Just because it's somebody doesn't give us much consent to their partner doesn't mean it should just be nightmare Fuel and dying painfully. So what gives? Do you think you might give me a full detailed and comprehendible exclamation to why you think that not consensual sex really horrifying?

I feel like we've been over this so many times with you, and you're still asking the same questions.

On this site, non-consensual sex or rape doesn't have to result in murder, or nightmare fuel, or 'dying painfully', for it to be 'grimdark'.

Rape, by itself, is grimdark.

Please respect this tagging guideline, please stop vandalizing tags on images, and please stop leaving comments talking about how 'happy and fun' you find rape to be on images — even images where the character being raped is crying, pleading for mercy, and in some cases dying you have posted comments talking about how the victim should be happy to be giving the rapist 'so much pleasure' — please, stop.

We are not going to stop tagging rape as grimdark, and you are no longer welcome on this site.

… this right here? This is the kind of thing that scares me. And I'm not just talking about the grammar.

Probably miscommunication.

@Brokedownandmadeone
Sorry but no. At least one habitual visitor to the site makes it their mission to gatekeep what may be tagged rape, and whether sexual abuse and sexual violence should always/ever be tagged grimdark. This could technically be another person with the same MO and motives, but I'd put my money on it being the same person with a fun new persona.

Source: this is the third time I've seen them, and I'm not even active in comment sections, let alone site staff.

I didn't initially mean to leave the bit I wasn't reacting to "Please respect this tagging guideline, please stop vandalizing tags on images, and please stop", but I just didn't bother and figured any passerby (or more importantly DW, who did) would understand what the reaction was directed toward.

The pic is currently rated Grimdark, although I don't see anything that qualify for this rating, so unless Apple Bloom being put on coma is somewhat similar to dying violently/painfully, I think that'll better be re-rated to Safe

Guidelines need updating in relation to sex and how much of things we can see, I've learned. I should probably get around to trying to update them now.

@Panko Pai
Safe is fine, yes, and would be even if she was dead. Has to be something horrific bodywise (stuff you couldn't show on Spongebob etc.) for Grimdark to kick in.

Minor tagging dispute: adult character in a diaper but people want to tag it as Safe, even though that's one of the headline scenarios for the Suggestive tag. One of the comments points to other probably mis-tagged pictures that are Safe in the Adult Foal tag so those might need to be addressed as well.

Hmm, the posing and expression is very much saying "look at this diaper on my butt", so Suggestive is probably a little bit more reasonable, but it's iffy. I try not to set my foot down too hard in this area since it can upset people either way, so I'll delay an actual decision.
I'm actually thinking that I should get the guidelines slightly reworked soon, so we have a better litmus test here.
