Rating check:
>>2250148 is currently questionable, should it be explicit instead?
>>2556541 is currently questionable, is it indeed showing “Moderately-detailed genital or anus outlines in clothing” or does it reach explicit-level?
Same question: >>3015863
Isn’t a sex toy, such as a dildo, not in use not automatically explicit? For example, should >>3289822 (currently explicit) be rated down to questionable?

>>3314194 was changed to Safe by staff, but is pretty aggressively Suggestive.
As per the Suggestive description “Sexually showing off part of the body or a situation with more than just a saucy look, like presenting a butt or stroking a stuffed belly seductively “ and I think the camera being zoomed in on Fluttershy twerking at it clearly counts as “presenting a butt”.

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.

That part of the guidelines is about the character’s action, not the camera’s, zooming in on a butt is something done in FiM itself at times, but there’s no direct equivalent for the dancing motion. The image is currently under review.

Requesting rating check for >>3061905. currently set to semi-grimdark, should it be grimdark instead?
Semi-grimdark description states “Minor physical/sexual abuse, including very dubious consent”. But since the original upload by one of the artists who worked on the animation, the game has been stated as tentacle rape porn.
Also not sure on the tags of dubious consent and dubious consentacles. While the tentacles don’t visibly maim Applejack, they clearly aren’t being gentle on her and her visual discomfort lasts throughout the entire animation

Tags were changed again before tag lock but wasn’t sure if it was just dubious consent or proper rape. Feels like former with nervousness/fear but still looking like he wanted to and in the last panel seems like genuine desire for her to take her time. Currently has both along with spikeabuse, abuse.

Can images with “submissive” characters be safe? Because there’s a lot of images with “submissive” characters that are rated “safe”, and I don’t think that’s very family friendly if you ask me.

Yes they can. BDSM power exchange does not have to be limited to sexy times. A perfectly safe image of a submissive could be something like a submissive character cleaning house, or massaging their dominant, or even simply physically lowering themselves in the physical or symbolic presence of a dominant character. Visual clues like devotion collar or sissifying outfit can suggest that it’s specifically a submissive doing service.
/edit to address actual images on site
Rating comments for themes that get tagged safe, submissive a lot (to keep thing simple, I won’t say anything about the validity of ‘submissive’):
  • tied up and/or gagged characters, characters in shackles or stocks etc.
  • characters existing while leashed/collared
  • characters being physically overpowered/dominated: pinned to ground, kabedon, being sat on, princess carried, over-the-shoulder carried
  • characters wearing bridles, saddles, harnesses - they’re little horses, Bront
  • tickle torture
  • characters being coiled up by serpentine bodied characters/creatures
All of these are easily ‘safe’ if there’s no nudity, suggestive touching/poses/view angles, implication of genital contact, or suggestive reactions. All of these appear rather frequently in TV shows approved for ages 7 and up (which is our reference frame for ‘safe’), or otherwise in media that is targeted and approved for small children.
