I love the fact that the board practically tags for you, and we still have people who refuse to tag.

I do believe that aliasing “DJ” with “Vinyl Scratch” is a mistake since anyone of the characters can be drawn as DJs themselves/we have fanart where a character is depicted as a DJ.
 
Well, unless we have a tag for that kind of depiction that I’m not aware of.
 
Oh and pardon for the double post. (the earlier one was on a separate thread.)

“ot” doesn’t work for Octavia.  
“oct” does, though, as it’s clear from the alias list.
 
I think that “dj” should be a separated tag, too.  
Vinyl Scratch is better knows as, duh, Vinyl Scratch. Too bad “vs” is already used in a (very) few images, so maybe “vsc” or “vy”?

@Background Pony  
Uhm, spike is just the name, not a “<abbreviation> - spike” type of thing?  
And it’s there because otherwise there will probably be more Spike drama. It needs work anyway.
 
… I’m also seeing the coco and earlier suggestions just now…

Those should be in now.

Well, right now this is a glorious thing for the Deutsche Bahn or something. Either we actually make the shorthand or I can remove it from the tagbox again?  
Unrelated: that lack of Deutsche Bahn pics

Oh, crud :|
 
I suppose it’s not possible to change things now?  
Somehow I think it wouldn’t be tragic, would it?

@The Frowning Pony  
Ah, yes, I know.  
But there aren’t many Silver Spoon pictures uploaded everyday. Not as many as Shimmer’s, on average.  
Is it possible to know how many taggers actually use “ss”?

Clover, K_A or barbeque could probably figure it out by checking certain logs. It’s not just taggers, though, it’s also search queries.
