I feel like the 'original' usage would be more useful as I feel like there are other vore tags that could apply to the 'new' meaning.

Makes sense to me.

I would just like to note as a reminder that an image like >>2095920 (minor spoilers for Dragon Dropped), showing 2 ponies drinking from the same milkshake, is definitely shipping, as it shows behavior indicating a romantic relationship. Similarly, an image just showing them talking to each other shouldn't be tagged shipping as it isn't indicating a relationship, and this image also has an example of that with the pair in the foreground. This is the same between screenshots and fanart.
This will surely come up a lot now as (SPOILERS FOR FINALE) Lyra proposed to Bon Bon in the finale and a newspaper article later on shows them as newylewds.

I get your logic for the former, but my BF and his friend have done that and they've never dated. But sometimes people have assumed they were so idk. ¯\(ツ)

Don't know why people can't just assume what they want and not having either one be 'wrong' or 'right'.

Well tags need to take a stance one way or another for searching/filtering purposes, and this comes up a lot with like "are they dating or not"? Best to explicitly say that tags are only interested in the visible signs in the image (no tagging Maudbriar just because Maud and Mud Briar are sitting next to each other).

Well it seems like you're far more insistent on lyrabon than maudbriar or sugarmac and really imo none of them should be tagged like at all unless they're like kissing or the scene in question contextually has them expressing affection. I don't think drinking from the same cup or hugging counts for any of them. I mean that's my opinion anyway. My logic applies to all couples, whether married or not. I just think that nitpicking smaller things or tagging it on those smaller things is too much.

There's a big difference between sharing a swig from a bottle with somebody and sitting at a table drinking the same drink from different straws.

The former, buddies do. The latter, buddies don't.

In your opinion. Personally I don't think we should be so hard on tagging this as shipping and making it like a rule to have it there. Just let people see what they want and don't enforce it. And before you say something like "oh you're just saying that as you don't like lyrabon" I would say this for any pairing. I think it's less complicated to just not bother with it and let people see what they want to. It would create less drama imo versus nitpicking what you or I personally see as shipping and not shipping.

To be a bit more explicit, here's a table of images.
1: Lyra and Bon Bon I tagged shipping. 2: Lyra and Bon Bon I did not tag shipping.

3: Maud and Mud Briar I left tagged shipping 4: Maud and Mud Briar I removed the shipping tag from.

So where do you think the inconsistency in tag application is?

Guess that's the way to go for now. Though your list isn't really what I'm looking for either, partly because some stuff is completely unrelated (what does "inflation", "disembodied penis" or "fidget cube" have to do with the image containing ponies?), but partly because a lot of stuff is from the show and I wouldn't mind seeing it — first of all, things like changelings or zebras are practically ponies, and second of all I am now realising that while there's nothing wrong with gryphons those would be excluded by a "pony" filter. (Also unless I'm reading your filter wrong, it would exclude all images containing at least one of those tags, meaning that e.g. Opal being present in an image would be enough for it to get excluded.)
Which brings me to my next question: is there any better way to search for content that is "show canon species only"? (Without EqG for my personal tastes, but that's easy enough to filter.) If "original species" was tagged comprehensively, that might in theory be a good tag to exclude, though anthro and human probably wouldn't be included. Still, assuming that's not well tagged either, is there again no choice but to simply build up a giant filter of species that can be white- and blacklisted over time?

Well, I wouldn't assume that hand hold to be romantic, given the way the hand's offered with dialog and the glowing. I think it's pretty fair to cut shipping vs. not somewhere in hand holding, and I don't think it'd be a good idea to try to go "hand holding isn't sufficient" just based on some clearly-not-relationship hand holding existing.

Meh, w/e, I just don't like shipping tags on screencaps as it's always a mess to deal with and I'd rather not force them to be tagged and just let it be if it gets removed.
