Should Taur be a general tag or should Anthro and Feral be species tags?

taur are mythological species, anthro and feral are body structures. Everything is how it should be.

Thanks for your reply. I am waiting for an opinion from an administator or moderator.

Not officially, no.

anthro and feral are body structures.

Around here, taur is used as a body structure since there was no official term for it.

Citation? I know that Centaur are mythological creatures, but not "Taur" in general.

it's all a little wibbley, but generally, yeah, kinda what Versperus said. we could probably mix it up and do it the other way instead, but we've been doing it this way for like 10 years.

Taur is roughly in the same category as animal_humanoid -- it's a big broad category that describes a particular type of character.

fox_humanoid is a animal_humanoid.
Fox_taur is a taur

There's not really an 'X is an anthro' statement that could be made, though. A fox CAN be anthro. or feral! It's an option. A foxtaur is always a taur.

I guess Anthro and feral are a bit like gender/sex tags. -- There's a lot of variation on what one looks like, some look more like one than another... but generally speaking, you can't be both a male and a herm. You can't be both anthro AND feral.

But you can be a fox_taur AND a taur.

maybe that makes sense?

Maybe changing anthro and feral to species tags and using tags like anthro_fox will work. If you think a little bit about it, someone will be searching for an image with an anthro fox and a feral wolf so it will search "anthro feral fox wolf" and end up finding a picture with a feral fox and an anthro wolf.

There are 1,522,052 posts on here. If we could retag one picture a second, it'd take about 423 hours, or about 17.6 days. One picture a second. With no sleep, drinking, blinking or anything.

One second per picture is not reasonable. 2 seconds would mean it would be 35.2 days. more realistic is probably closer to 10 or 15 seconds per image. I'll let you do the math.

Anthro_fox would be a very nice tag, but it would take So. Freakin. Long. to get everything retagged.

Now add in that if we decided to go through Every. Single. Picture on the website, there are several other things we would want to do too -- adding even more to that time.

It's a nice idea, but it's about 11 years too late, man. :c

I would've gone with werefox over anthro_fox to completely decouple the anthros from the ferals just like the humanoids and taurs, but yeah. WAY too many images to retag.
