Broader Tagging?
Should we take this chance to broaden the tagging a bit? I'm not saying go the /v/ route and differentiate post with "big_ass, huge_ass, ass" but maybe if a request called for ageing up a character, or milf character, or something a bit more than just "parody" or "cosplay", but not too nuts like "blue_hair_with_stripes".

We could probably do with having a discussion of what tags we should use, as I feel that the sort of tags used defines the purpose of the site.

Personally, I think anything more than character/series/IP, artist name, and a few meta-descriptors (comics, parody, etc) is superfluous. For me, the focus of this collection should be as a repository of /co/-produced fanart. You browse this site because you specifically want to see, for example, "Dexter's_Mom", not just any generic "milf" + "huge_ass" (there are plenty of other booru for that).

Actually, yes, that works. I remember the "parody" tag being use for things like "could you do X character like this picture of this underwear model i found?" So, should that still be the norm?

I feel that with the recent creation of /aco/, we need to reconsider things. Obviously, there's not much point in trying to make all the porn from there go make their own booru, as /aco/ is technically the porn sub-board of /co/. Therefore, I think it's wise to start using more descriptive tags to ensure people who just want SFW content can find it easy, and those who want NSFW or don't care can sift through everything.

I hope you guys don't mind, i'm tagging the gay posts with the "Male_Only" post. That's how it works in Rule 34.

Surely this is what the Safe/Questionable/Explicit ratings are for?

Though they're not quite as intuitive as basic tags. Personally, I don't think we need to do anything more than reinforcing the S/Q/E ratings with "SFW" and "NSFW" tags (Questionable content would be the tagger's judgement, but I'd be extra cautious and file it as NSFW).


Again, a discussion as to what we feel the purpose of this Booru should be would help in determining the type of tags used.

I disagree. There's always going to be something you don't like when browsing a website, it can even be just a character. And there is a way to just see the SFW posts.

And as for being more descriptive, the reason I like this booru, and even help with it, is because of the more simple tagging, and the reason other more “descriptive” tags have stayed is because some go way back, and are too many of them. Like LHK said, there's plenty of other boorus for that kind of tagging.

Are you referring to any of the Rule34 boorus? Like by name “Rule 34”? Well yeah, they do what works for them.

Then we don't tag the ones that are SFW. But come on, people should be able to enter a tag for a specific thing, and if that happens to be something NSFW, it should be made easier to find rather than having to sift through everything.

Since when did people viewing this booru, and the site from which the content this booru archives, have a problem with encountering an "offensive" image? I don't do drawthreads, so I don't know what's going on in them lately, but this is the first time I'm seeing someone advocating for a "safer" browsing experience.
People are responsible enough to pick a time and place to browse anything, in any kind of "rating".

Also, and I'm saying this based on my own style of uploading, this booru isn't really the "sifting through" type. Since there are times when several images tend to be of a consecutive theme. As people have mentioned before, the tagging style of this booru might as well defined its purpose, and that purpose is "You came here with a specific character/property/artist in mind to look at, so you type in that specific character/property/artist". The only way to really have a leisurely browse, is to use the Random button.
I'm pretty content with the tagging.

The point is that having some broader tag options would make things more manageable in the long run. For one, plenty of people dump images here, which can lead to many not getting the proper rating. But at the same time, some people who may enjoy explicit images might only prefer explicit things like blood or something generally violent and not want to be met with porn. Not only that, since /aco/ is basically going to make as much /d/ content as /h/ content, it'd be useful to have tags for things people especially don't want to see, like diapers or futa. Sure, you can say that many people won't be bother, I know I wouldn't really be, but it'd be foolish to assume that everyone will just ignore such things and not raise a fuss.

Really, long as we don't get crazy with the tagging, like having 3 different ones for something like ass and tits, I don't see much problem in making the additional tags. Granted, we would need to make sure people uploading, and even some who just browse, are willing to tag things accordingly so the effort doesn't just fall to the moderators.

“The point is that having some broader tag options would make things more manageable in the long run.” How so? It’s already pretty manageable now, without the cluster of tags.
And that bit at the end there, that already reads like it would take extra effort, the opposite of more manageable.

“For one, plenty of people dump images here, which can lead to many not getting the proper rating.” Also not really true? I only ever see Blargarg when I’m putting things from the drawthreads, and even when there’s people like “petitebrownpunk” going after other threads, the ratings are on point. Even one-time posters haven’t messed up in that regard, and if they did, me or other users just correct it.

Again, like PTB and LHK have said, the purpose of this particular booru should be that a person already has a certain character, IP, or even artist, in mind when coming here. For everything else, there’s plenty of other boorus and archiving sites for that.

This reads like you’re afraid of what the new board might bring to anyone’s sensible eyes. I’m a relatively new user, at least with uploading, but I’ve never seen anybody complaining that they stumbled on something they didn’t like.
