I absolutely have no idea where to post this, i’m so sorry if it’s not the right tag discussion, but shouldn’t pubic hair imply pubic hair slip?

Hi you guys! Yes, My friend and I did create the Jinxy Tag.

So the Sphinx from ep. daring done has no canonical name. Many people would like to see that change. Based on the fandom’s history with naming unnamed FiM characters, I’d say the idea holds water. the ’Jinxy (character)’ tag has received good feedback but was recently nuked along with all the other sphinx name tags, as they should be. There can be only one name after all. My question is, how do we proceed? Could we take a pole or vote to determine the most widely accepted name? Are we still allowed to tag our own art with our name ideas for unnamed characters? Or do we just have to go around calling the thing Sphinx?

I would just like to clarify. I was not evolved in the ’Jinxy (character)’ tag spreading. Some over excited fan of the name mass-posted it all over other peoples art. Some people clearly like the name Jinxy and its not just me off in a corner. I just post the tag on my own art and hope people post it on their art as well, I’m not interested in forcing a meme. I’m not interested in mis-classifying things. I’m interested in people who genuinely like the name idea adopting it for themselves and having the name grow naturally.
And my god PLEASE re-nuke Kusu Symphora. Those spazzes come at me in my comment section telling me i’m misnaming a character with no official name. the name kuzu symphora sounds like a bloody venereal decease.

I suggested doing some sitewide polling for names for Trixie’s Mom and it sounds like that might be happening (at least nobody has objected yet), after which we’d do Fluttershy’s parents and I suppose the sphinx could be added as well.

We went with Jinxy because Jinxy is a semi common cat name, jinx rhymes with Sphinx, a Jinx is evil magic which the sphinx is capable of casting in the episode.
Frankly the sphinx doesn’t need a 2 part name.
Chrysalis, Tirek, Jinxy
Or if you want
Queen Chrysalis, Lord Tirek, Pharaoh Jinxy

Notoriously Divine Tagger - Consistently uploads images above and beyond the minimum tag requirements. And/or additionally, bringing over the original description from the source if the image has one. Does NOT apply to the uploader adding several to a dozen tags after originally uploading with minimum to bare tagging.

If we’re discussing sphinx names, I like the sound of Jocasta. Nice name, plus there’s a mythological link — Jocasta was Oedipus’ mother, and Oedipus’ legend is where the whole thing with riddles comes from.

Out of curiosity, how thorough do we usually get in making implications for tags pertaining to other franchises?

EDIT TO AVOID DOUBLEPOSTING: The broken leg tag needs cleaning up. Right now it’s used for both explicitly broken legs and for cases of severely inaccurate anatomy — chiefly characters’ legs having too many joints or bending in ways that horse joints cannot bend without snapping.

Huh, I have, but if you haven’t then I guess its one of a kind and super unique? XD
Can you tell I’m bias towards this name? he he
What I mean is that it sounds like an appropriate cat name. Kinda like mittens, or snowball though I suppose its less generic.

I would name the Sphinx "Sandy". Also, would there be an announcement if a suggestions thread were to be made?
