One i've looked for before but not yet managed to find: a tag for characters who are wearing shorts however the zipper is open and you are able to see a little lower than usual. This tag I guess may be associated to more than just shorts, but thats filterable :P

Well, we have open_zipper and, related penis_through_fly

There are only about 1500 zipper posts, so populating open_zipper shouldn't take too much effort..

The only catch is, open_zipper is for all zippers not just the fly.

Thought about some sort of 'open_fly', but not all flies have zippers. Some are just buttons.

Hmm....I'd honestly just probably use open_zipper.

Sooo what body type is mareanie?

In this post

"Mareanie may be based on a sea urchin mixed with a Crown-of-Thorns starfish." Crown-of-Thorns Starfish

It's effectively legless, armless, and has hair tentacles.

"In borderline cases between feral and anthro, if the character couldn't pass off as a feral animal, it should be tagged as anthro. Use the overall body shape and posture when determining which tag is more appropriate." -anthro

I don't know about "borderline", but I don't ever see Mareanie "pass[ing] off as a feral animal". Does that make it anthro?

I could see monster or tentacle_monster as life rafts of convenience.

What's the correct thinking for classifying this under the current system?

Definitely doesn't look feral (as we use it here) to me. Looks more like a humanoid to me- it has a humanoid face and the animal features it has are limited to things like hair.


abadbird said:

Pokemon tagging can be fairly messy, I know for sure that pokémorph should be used when pokemon are depicted to be more human-like than their canon appearance.

Mareanie is rather tricky as it lies outside of the definition for most body types. It doesn't have arms and legs, so it can't be anthro. It is close to a waddling_head, but it has a defined 'torso' under its head. It doesn't appear to be feral either as it is too different from any wild animal I can identify, while also having a fairly humanoid face.

I do believe it should be tagged with tentacle_hair, though I would doubt it being a fully fledged tentacle_monster.

It could certainly qualify as having a humanoid_face, but it lacks the limbs to be a proper humanoid.

For like, my 2 cents on it - I tend to tag feral on things that do not have like, regularly usable hands. Maybe it has hand-like front paws, but it spends most of it's time walking on them. Or maybe it has wings. additionally/alternatively, it's torso is horizontally oriented, rather than vertically. As general rules of thumb, anyway. :)

I had another reason for posting here, but I've completely forgotten what it was. How are you? Doing good? That's good. :) Have a nice day!

2. Do we have a tag for when a characters who is not nightmare moon goes "nightmare mode"? we have nightmare_rarity_(idw) for a character from the comics, but what about if someone draws, say, nightmare twilight sparkle?

3. we have the alicornification tag. Is there.. .something better for "I turned this earth pony into an alicorn!" ? I mean, fluttershy_(MLP) alternate_species winged_unicorn has a lot of false positives. and allicornifcation only has 3 posts in it c_c I put 2 of them there myself.

Hard to say.

It doesn't resemble any real animal, so feral is out.
And anything with a humanoid face is usually a poor fit for anthro. (One thing to keep in mind is that anthro and feral are strictly 'furry' tags, and should never be tagged for anything that's not_furry. Yep, everything in ~anthro ~feral not_furry is mistagged in some way.).

If it had limbs, it'd be solidly in the humanoid category, similar to the splatoon characters. Wiki defines humanoids as bipeds, but that guideline tends to get bent for creatures such as human-like ghosts and genies who often lack actual legs. In short, anything that's mostly human-shaped tends to be humanoid.

But that still feels like a poor fit for mareanie. Ah well, like I've said elsewhere, there are creatures that don't fit solidly into any current category.

Some kind of pattern + fur_pattern. We have paisley_pattern, but those aren't quite the same. You can Google types of patterns to find *the* exact one, but then you may be the only person to ever use that tag unless you choose something broad, like spiral_pattern.

Wow. My brain reacts to that one almost violently with a no. ... Huh. Hm. I think it's... because a curls seem 3D versus 2D. .... brain associations are weird. Also, curls are sort of a hair-thing. ...? I dunno, Brain is weird.
