I’d like to bump this with a suggestion for tagging specific to images.
This first post appears to be focused more on entry tags and not image tags. However, I think that many people (users and those without accounts) come to look for images. Now that you can search for images with specific tags, I think that tags for images need to be discussed.
First off, when I last posted here in regards to the images I uploaded, apparently commas didn’t matter. However, I’ve been tagging images, and commas separate tags now.
Also, there are some tags that I would like to look for on occasion and change/add.
For example, some tags might be redundant:
- animated gif
I would prefer “animated,” because there are animated .png’s, and some .gifs are not animated. I think “animated” covers all three.
And I would most certainly prefer not to use all three for any moving image.
I also don’t know how the name of the entry affects the images. Do all images in the “forever alone” entry come up in the images of the results when you search for “forever alone?” Or will they only come up if they are tagged individually as “forever alone?”
If images from the Forever Alone gallery come up even if the images themselves are not tagged “Forever Alone” or the entry is gallery has the tag “forever alone,” then people can know/learn that they don’t have to add the name of the entry to the tag if it is in that entry.
But if that image crosses over an is part of two or three entries, then the tags for the other entries that this particular image isn’t in should be added to the image.
It’s of great interest to me, because I’m tagging images I’ve found to be untagged, but I’d like to develop a list for some commonly expected and used tags.
4 pane comic?
4 panel comic?
If there is a commonly agreed upon list for images, then users can just click on those to find images. And mods who are going through and tagging images can know how to tag (and can search for other likely used tags to change them to the accepted tag.)
Anyone want to chat about this on here?
tl;dr: I need an admin here plz thx.
