Topic: Meta Tag Suggestions

Posted under Tag/Wiki Projects and Questions

If general tags are supposed to be about the meaningful content of a post, and meta tags are supposed to be about the nature of the post, then the tags below may need to be reclassified to 'meta'. This is definitely not an exhaustive list, but this should hopefully help us make use of the category.

Notes:

Updated

It looks like this is what the new "request BUR" link is for (BUR == bulk update request).
Seems like, per the provided help, you would feed in lines like

category bust_portrait meta
category url meta

(it's easy to generate this from a list of tags using a basic regexp search+replace (^(.+)$ -> category \1 meta))

.. I guess the intended usage would be something like, enter all the ones you were pretty certain of into the BUR script, and then start a thread to discuss individually handling the ones you were uncertain of.

.. I've read over your list and I agree with all of it.

Don't forget long_image and tall_image which are auto-tags brought in with the updated danbooru framework.

I'm not sure how many auto-tags were introduced, but I imagine most of them would be meta.

Thanks! I added it to the list.

I'm not sure that the text, color palette, or portrait tags really belong as meta tags, to me they feel more like information about the content of a post rather than information about the post itself.

It looks like the tags added by @NotUncommon (like long_image and tall_image) weren't included in the BUR and thus haven't been moved to the meta category.

Sorry for the late reply. When I said that I'd at it to the list, I meant the list on this forum not the BUR. If I get around to making a second BUR, I'll add them. Until then, tags that aren't in the meta category but could belong there will be marked with [!] on the forum post.

Dated should be a meta tag

What would "dated" even mean? That it has a date written on it? That it's subject matter is "dated" (i.e. no longer relevant, didn't age well)? That it depicts someone on a romantic date? Seems more like it should be disambiguated.

Seems to mean the first of those options.

In my personal tagging (drawings) I use 'datestamp', which is.. not strictly accurate, but at least less ambiguous.

I believe that voice_acted should be categorized as a meta tag due it being related to sound
Can this forum be stickied for a bit?
