If you want an image to show up as a thumbnail in a comment, you need to format it like so:

>>1836588t or >>1836588s

The second will make a small image thumbnail.

In this case, I don't think that this pony has a name yet, no. Neither does the blue stallion:


For reference's sake, the other two members of the royal legion currently go by Albus and Iron Eagle.

Hence why this thread should be linked to in comment sections when and where relevant.

Do you see the bar up at the top of the site? There's an icon shaped like a bar with an arrow pointing up, right next to the site logo. Click on it and you'll go to the uploading interface. You can either paste an url in the topmost bar or upload an image from you computer — it can be finicky and not all urls work, so if one doesn't you can just download the relevant image and upload it that way. An image needs a minimum of three tags, one of which needs to be a rating tag (for a screencap, the rating is always "safe") before the site will let you upload it, but try to include more than the minimum — things like the character's species and gender, the episode the image is from, any specific action they're taking, and so on are all things that you should think about tagging.

When all of that's done, click on the "upload" button at the bottom and there you go.

That's fine. Just try to keep your temper in the future, and I think most people will be happy to let bygones be bygones.

If you want to participate in naming background ponies in the future, you're more than welcome to propose and debate names here. Any official tagging will probably have to wait until polls come back online, though.

I think you probably need to calm down about this thing you have. There's a time and a place for discussing one's opinions of other people's headcanons, but the main tagging forum is absolutely not it.

If you could avoid stirring up discussions that have been dead and buried for years, that would also be helpful.

What @Background Pony #95DD and @The Equestrian Zodiac said — the name color is reserved for canon characters. Further, since Lycanroc's midnight form exists as a species of Pokémon that people could conceivably use for unrelated images, it shouldn't be tagged as a canon or oc name anyway — I'd suggest adding an "oc:midnight lycanroc" tag in addition to the ones already present, personally.

Regardless, if we're discussing a shipping tag, its relevant implications should be brought up here.

I think I see what you mean. Stuff like assets, concept art and storyboards, which is never actually released under normal conditions, should certainly keep the leak tag — after all, there aren't going to be any non-leak sources for that sort of material.

My original thought was more narrow — I was thinking of material like screencaps or gifs taken from leaked episodes, or fan art inspired by leaked material — like these two screencaps, or this piece here, just to have some specific examples. Should those keep the leak tag?

@Derpy Whooves
That's also a very valid concern.

Hmm. Removing the leak tag from G4 material may be worth looking into — at the least I'd assume that if something has been out for, let's say, a year already, it probably doesn't need to be tagged as a leak, but more generally my instinct would be to cut the tag from anything that has been officially released already.

Arguments aside, I had a look and a very significant majority of the polyamory ships do not, in fact, imply their component ships — it's easier to list the ones that do (shidancie, bonlyrabon, sweetiebloomloo, sunset twiangle, and promberlista, specifically; I may have missed a couple, but those were the ones I found).

The R63 ships trixgleamstone and shimshamjack imply their gender-swapped counterparts (startrixburst and flimflamjack) but neither they nor their counterparts imply any of their components.

Thus, out of the 123 tags that imply "polyamory", only seven imply another ship and only five of those imply a component ship.

I'm not going to venture an opinion on what official policy is or isn't, because frankly I'm not familiar with that part of tagging policy, but based on what implications on existing tags are I can understand how people would believe that poly ship tags are not meant to imply their components. If indeed they are, someone should probably have a look at adding those implications at some point.

Hmm. There's been so much added to the tag that I can't really tell what it was originally used for. Right now it seems to cover griffons, hippogriffs and pegasi acting like birds, cute griffons, hippogriffs and pegasi and instances of the word "birb" being used. The last… I don't think it really needs a tag; the first is already covered by the "[x] doing bird things" family; and if you want to find cute pictures by species you only really need to search "[species], cute".

I dunno, this seems too diffuse to pull a specific meaning out of it, and I'm not sure if it really provides any particular utility.

Best way to make a link is to look up the tag you want (then preferably clicking on it to go to the tag itself rather than the search, it's no different in practice but the link syntax is cleaner) and copy the url in the bar at the top of your browser. The icons above the comment box (the ones including the options for bolding, italics, spoilers, etc.) include one that looks like two links in a chain. Highlight the word you want to make into a link, click on the icon, paste the url in the box and click "ok".

Alternatively, you can write them like I have here — if you click "quote" beneath a comment, the comment's text will be copied into the comment box, including the syntax.

Another thing that occurred to me now is that I'm not certain if "bug" is the best implication for Bug-types. The "bug" tag is aliased into "insect", currently, and while that may be what they're called in their home franchise it doesn't reflect how "insect" is used on this site — things like spiders and anomalocarids aren't… actually insects, although Ledyba and Venonat certainly are.

Can't think of any other real issues beyond that, though.

Pokémon
(Don’t know how this isn’t a species tag yet.)

I would say that it's because it's used for the entire franchise, not for Pokémon as a group of creatures — images relating to other aspects of the franchise, such as pokéballs and Pokémon trainers (1, 2 ), ponified human characters (1, 2 ), humanized characters and OCs (1, 2 ), canon characters wearing outfits from the series (1, 2 ) and straight crossovers (1, 2 ) all get the tag even with none of the actual creatures involved.

Like @Princess Trixie vi Equestria said, it's generally customary to tag every applicable character in an image regardless of relative role, but I understand where you're coming from — if I'm searching, let's say, "applejack, shipping", I'm probably not going to be too interested in that image. I can see why one might find "incidental" character tags useful.

That being said, the main issue I can see arising is that people might not have the same ideas about what counts as incidental. As things stand now, tagging is a simple binary — is Character/Thing in this image? If yes, tag. If no, don't tag. Deciding whether a character does or doesn't have a major role is more subjective, and I can see how it might end up fomenting tagging drama — there would be a lot of images where a character is obviously incidental and a lot where they obviously aren't, and then there would be a fuzzy area in between where the arguments would arise.

TL;DR — I agree that such a tag category be useful, but I also worry that it might invite tagging drama.

Thoughts?

In my opinion, yes. We already have a dedicated tag for Applejack's hat.

It further doesn't make any sense when we know AJ's got an entire closet full of identical hats, one of which got completely destroyed on a trip to Manehattan, so how exactly does one determine which hat is Tullulah outside the one Best Gift Ever short?

Exactly. There's now way to determine whether any given hat is or isn't the one in question, because they all look identical anyway, and if it's applied to all hats then applejack's hat does the same job and is much more intuitive and well-known.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a real-life video game. Amnesia The Dark Descent: Justine seems to be a slight misnaming of Amnesia: Justine, an expansion pack for the aforementioned game.

My Little Amnesia doesn't seem to have any common artist, and most of the images with that tag were tagged as such or uploaded by two people, so I don't know if it refers to any specific fan work or is just a catch-all tag for ponified art of the video game.

Hmm. A lot of the images under duck pony seem to be what behaving like a duck seems to cover… which might be fine, but if so they don't strictly need to be distinct tags, and duck pony shouldn't be brown. That said, "duck pony" sounds a lot more like species tag than a "behavior" tag, so I feel that a lot of what's under it right now might be best retagged under behaving like a duck.

Overall, I think duck pony may be trying to cover three things at once — pony/duck hybrids, ponies colored like ducks and regular ponies whose legs aren't visible. I'm not personally familiar with the tag, so I can't tell how this works out for people who use it more habitually, but might this be a bit confusing? I suppose that situations where a pony is deliberately drawn to be evocative a bird swimming in the water (which there seems to be a lot of) probably fit the spirit of tag, but I don't think it should be tagged on every image where a pony character's legs just happen to be hidden.
