That works? for characters passing the torch to a new generation. i like it!
But then what about characters carrying on a legacy of other characters so to speak?
When you think about it MLP:FIM was all about legacy and “passing the torch”. To wit, Celestia-Twilight, Rainbow-Scootaloo(kinda) Twilight-Luster Dawn. You get the idea. So yeah im trying to define more broadly now.

Sunny is more of a problem though, cause “sunny” is taken.
Is it? All I saw were pictures I have to guess use it to refer to the weather condition of direct sunlight, and even then I couldn’t always agree that it’s a good descriptor for the image. There’s only 110 posts, and I’ve definitely seen pictures where it could apply but it wasn’t tagged, leading me to think it’s a low-importance meaning.
So, can “sunny” get re-employed?

Yeah somehting like that. I still think “passing the torch” is universal enough. At least from my part of the world anyway. But yeah if that helps. But now im speaking more broadly than just G4-G5.
Lets see what you guys decide. i look forward to it.

Thats great. Things like you suggested like G5-G4 are a bit too specific i think. I feel like phrases can be applied to other things like Scootaloo Taking from Rainbow Dash, Luster Dawn from Twliligth Sparknle etc.
Your right it is worth discussing. i thouhgt it would make things easier.

I don’t know if ‘passing the baton’ is a cultural metaphor that will work outside of a few countries … Starting to feel a little Archer Sterling here …

I mean, it IS a good idiom. But is it TOO idiom?
I really like this idea, and would be happy to help get the tag documented with a full description … but … let’s hear from a few other voices before nailing anything to the Church door.

Hey i didnt think of that. Or How bout “Passing the baton”?
Thing is i believe these phrases are well known enough that they deserve their own tag for things like this.
Thanks for the reply btw

Uhm … maybe not that exact phrase, since the first thing I thought of when I saw the title was something like the Olympics. Which MLP has one of in canon.
So … G5->G4 or something like that?
Do we have something like this today for G1->G4?

I’ve actually started to wonder if they need shorthands at all because their first names are pertty short and I just use those for searching.
Sunny is more of a problem though, cause “sunny” is taken. I had thought of the idea of sst for her too.
Another shorthand I was thinking of was for the tag “mane five (g5)”. The mane six have “m6”, so What about “m5g5”? Or even just m5? The other “mane 5” doesn’t have that on it.

Not sure if this has been discussed elsewhere since, so I’m gonna necro this thread to say that I think shorthands for the mane 5 are necessary.
ht, im, and zs are the natural picks for Hitch, Izzy, and Zipp and aren’t really used already.
Sunny needs a shorthand the most because she’s the only one whose first name isn’t aliased into her full name. ss and sus are already taken. I’ll suggest one of sys, sss, or sst.
The simple choice for Pipp, pp, is also taken. The ones that come to mind for me are pip and ppp, which are just one letter shorter than “Pipp”, but it would bug me to no end if all of the mane 5 but one had real shorthands. I suppose ppp and sss for Pipp and Sunny would be nice for its consistency.
The other revealed characters don’t need shorthands, at least not yet.

For myself, I was just referring to examples where unedited screencaps were tagged “abuse”.
But, yeah - there are tons of examples where some people are putting together intentional “character abuse” images or sequences, whether that is an edit of a screencap or original art, and I believe those should absolutely be tagged “abuse”.

In that case, I suppose the default filter should be adjusted to try to not warn against unedited official material?

Well, tags are for informing, and to facilitate seeking and avoiding.
I assume people use these to seek or avoid things***** being treated badly. That’s subjective, though - I could imagine for example, as a stretch, someone might even think “this pic does not actively depict my preferred ship” = “those characters are being denied love, that’s bad treatment!” I mean, as a stretch of reasoning, not that it’s a stretch to think someone might have that mindset. I’m not even a mod and I’ve seen how certain comments go…
After having a think about it, I feel like major traits of “bad treatment/abuse” are mean-spiritedness, repetition or density, and severity. These can apply either in a direct content/context sense, or in a meta sense (eg. a particular artist or a particular requester/commissioner generating a lot of targeted content).
  • Something like illustrations of fanfic:cupcakes would be high in severity of content, and high in meta repetition (in context, it happens only once…I think…?)
  • Something like a montage or collage of every show moment where a particular character gets hurt could get elevated to “abuse” status because even though it can’t be repeated any more than it was in the show and they’re not very severe at all (low physical or emotional injury), it’s focused (density) and likely indicates whoever made it is spreading some malice.
  • Something like a comic where there’s a war happening, even severe injuries or deaths could be low on the mean-spiritedness aspect because they have justification, they aren’t senseless. Even that’s subjective, but I hope you get what I mean. It’ll depend more on the specifics.
  • fluffy pony abuse and abuse edits are basically the opposite of that.
  • Something like Jargon Scott and friends’ teasing of Gallus seems to me like medium across all 3 aspects and worthy of tagging.
  • A picture of a character looking sad with the caption “worst pony” is not, and if that genuinely makes someone feel bad, they should do some introspection.
*“Things”: characters, categories (eg. “changelings”), objects (eg. “plushies” or “merch”), or anything at all (the plain abuse tag).

Honestly in a lot of cases it seems that the taggers are confusing physical comedy with bullying.

Just saying…there are a lot more unaliased hair/mane-split tags to go over, too. I hope you won’t mind a few more pointed out here:
wet mane - wet hair (maybe skip this one because of wet-mane rarity making wet mane a bit of a meme)

Tagging Discussion » Should "busty" tags imply "big breasts"? » Post 1

Background Pony #C243
This is something that’s been discussed off and on in the past, including with a very similar thread.
Overall, it seems like everyone agrees but nobody decided conclusively to make it so, possibly to avoid “big breasts” getting added inappropriately because it also seems like everyone agrees that users will continue to apply the “busty X” tags with loose abandon.
As it stands, I interpret “busty X” tags to not apply for flat/small breasts, and to be more than just “unremarkable/no size tag”/“medium”/“reasonable” size but not necessarily all the way to “big”.
  1. I assume people who browse busty tags in the first place do so because they want to see, precisely, big breasts
As it is, they can use it to find specific characters that aren’t flat/small-chested.
  1. If someone wants to filter these out, they need to include big breasts in their filters… along with every single busty character tag they’re aware of because none of them imply it.
In other words, you’re saying you see people neglecting to tag “big breasts” when it should apply, and tagging only with a “busty X”? Yeah, I guess so, but I feel like more often it’s the opposite - I’ve needed to add the “busty X” tag to “big breasts”-tagged images a lot.
