swirly markings probably should, although, it would need to get removed from a few pictures where there aren’t any coat markings, like >>1906972, >>2223022, >>2243866, etc.
swirls definitely shouldn’t imply coat markings, it’s just for the shape in general.
That’s a good summary. Thank you :)
Yeah upon thinking about it more, swirls is probably more general than just the straight-up swirly markings.

Should the tag 3ds be only used when a Nintendo 3DS is depicted (which is my opinion), or is it also acceptable to tag it on pictures that were drawn on a 3DS (which is a way some people have used the tag)?

I think it’s neither and instead just a ‘Robin Hood hat’ (apparently named “bycocket”), just seen from the front. Would fit with the ‘sword and cape’ theme going on.
I don’t think there’s a tag for it, but I’ve not checked all five pages under *hat*. Not sure there’s enough results to warrant a tag, even with Robin Hood’s (which apparently is used to actually mean the hat sometimes), but then again it’s not like it’d be easy to check how many uploads have this hat…
If the tag needs to be made, I’d say robin hood hat is the better name of the two. But I’d wait for more/mod input beforehand.

Thanks for this Roseluck :)
I’ll take the tricorne tag off for now :)

I’d like an opinion on whether these two images should have the “vore” and “vore sequence” tags:
(spoilered because I don’t know if they’re too much for this thread)
Derpibooru’s definition of the “vore” tag is:
A living being mostly in another or otherwise being eaten.
And neither of these images depict any living thing entering another. Whether the building Twilight swallows contains anything alive or not is up to the viewer’s interpretation so I thought replacing the “vore” tag with “implied vore” here fit the tags’ definitions best. Would appreciate a second opinion though.
Similar concern applies for the “vore sequence” tag but it has no implications set up so it’s unclear if that one’s intended to be exclusively for “vore” that matches the main “vore” tag’s definition or if it also should include broader things like “object vore”.

Although this is true, I think the situations are different because:
  1. There are only a few dozen pictures tagged Commodore 64 so it is not a lot of work to look them over if someone wants to find specifically depictions of it vs. images made by it, whereas there are >500 posts tagged 3DS
  2. In my opinion, images created on (or mimicking) a Commodore 64 will have a very distinct appearance, whereas images created on a 3DS will not have any particular style or appearance

Check the description in oc:maría teresa de los ponyos paguetti. The origin of this is basically because someone wrote that sentence in an English forum.
@Background Pony #52BA
Regardless of the popularity of one device or another, or the aesthetics of the drawings made on them, I think it still has a common tag for both.
In another case, it occurs to me to be more specific like: Nintendo 3ds (console) But does this contemplate its representation in drawings or does it also apply with photos? What 3ds model is it? I think console It is already more direct, you just need to filter well what you are looking for.

In your second point you also have to take into account that each artist try to has their own style, regardless of whether they are using the same tools.
Yea, Commodore 64 and 3DS has a characteristic style, so ¿does this idea have to be applied in other drawing tools on consoles and/or computers? I mean, would the drawings in Mario Paint also follow the same logic?

Not necessarily. Could be standing out. Could be just peeking out. Could be held out. Could be taking a little walk all on its own, out and about, if you will.

When you find a piece without a credited artist or source*, and reverse searches can’t find it, but the image has an artist signature on it but you can’t be sure if you’re reading it correctly - whether because it’s hard to make out/ambiguous/illegible, or because it might have lookalike characters that you’re not reading correctly (eg. cyrillic), or because it might not exactly match the artist’s account name anywhere…
…is there a way to write that into the tags in a way that indicates “I want to try crediting this person but this tag might not be correct”? Just addding it as artist:xxxx seems too authoritative.
*and there is effectively no hope of asking the uploader to tag it, because it’s a BP and is of OCs for which there is a pattern of refusal to tag artists

@Background Pony #52BA
Hmm, hard to say. I’d probably either tag it with something like “suspected artist:xxxx” or “artist:xxxx” + “artist needed”. Plus I’d definitely explain the situation in the comments.
EDIT: Actually, instead of “artist:xxxx” + “artist needed”, it would be better to use something like “artist:xxxx” + “artist guessed” or “artist uncertain”. And of course still add a note in the comments.

BPs who regularly upload art with no attempt at artist credit whatsoever– especially from shit like desuarchive– should get an IP ban, they’re scum.

vibrating implies animated but routinely gets tagged on still images where a character is supposed to be vibrating (>>2903297 >>2862810) or a vibrator is being used vibrating + vibrator
Should the former images use shaking, suddering or shivering/quivering instead? If vibrator should be used instead for all the latter, what do with images using improvised sex toys (>>2742099 Explicit) or other means of vibration (>>2478624 Questionable) instead of proper vibrators? Should vibrating be renamed to make it more clear it’s primarily for gifs?

@Vauria
Good question. Even more than just implying animated, vibrating has it written in its description that it’s for animated images only, too… (In some other cases tag implications are just because they’re forgotten too often, and it’s OK to remove them afterward.)
