The easiest way to "save" this tag is to

1. Put all cute posts into a public set
2. Delete all cute tags
3. Invalidate the cute tag

The same goes for armpit but it's too late for that.

Our basic tagging/searching system already may cause some problems, incorporating sets wouldn't help, quite the opposite actually.
Also, is pretty likely for most people to continue using the tag instead of adding posts to the set, then those posts would be invalidated and lost, stagnating the referred set almost entirely, if not entirely.

For some reason the 'daww' tag is basically a smaller version of what the 'cute' tag is supposed to be; this sounds like a great opportunity to me and (as far as I can see) it would need this disambiguation to be availed.

Kinda hard to answer when the wiki doesn't really define what cute is.

Wiki says:
Images or animations drawn in a manner that deliberately renders the characters overly adorable.
Such images are usually not erotic in nature; think butterflies and rainbows and kittens.

To be fair, the wiki does say usually not. ~10450 rated explicit vs. ~26600 not.


'Cute' is often associated with young characters, but the current posts that I see right now are not associated with that in anyway. Cute and adorable are vague, subjective terms at best as some people are aware of already. I'd much rather have the tag invalidated than have varying viewpoints of what is considered 'cute'; dirty anal sex in this regard is not cute in any stretch of the imagination.

The concept of cuteness is somewhat vague, however it doesn't seem something we can't deal with; the problem here appears to be more the polysemy of the word 'cute' itself than anything else.
Within 'cute' exists more than one meaning:

I) 'adorable', which is what we wanted, what the tag was originally supposed to represent.

II) 'attractive' in so way, which works similarly to 'sexy' (in another words: useless).

III) 'heartwarming', which is romantic or just affectionate interaction between individuals.

I believe the problem is that we tried to select one among those meanings and use it, but the word itself hold them together in a practically inseparable way.
I have been saying this for a while now: if we found a word that encompasses only the significance we want it is possible to remediate that, creating a new tag that work as intended. Also this isn't a mere speculation, because that already happened before with the 'daww' tag.

About the 'cute' tag itself; there is no reason to keep it as a functional tag, however this doesn't mean we should invalidate it, not in this case. If a new tag for "adorable things" is created, people will continue tagging 'cute' sometimes; we will need to clean out the tag time to time, picking the posts that fit in what we want and ridding of the rest of them. We will need the disambiguation for all this to work.

There was some support for alternate tags back when this became a problem (in 2015).

Such as too_cute or too_damn_cute. But that never went anywhere. Instead, the consensus was that we should just try to keep it clean.

And of course, it was all talk as usual. The users who favored that never bothered to clean it.

So isn't the first time this gets suggested...

Well, since the "we will just clean it" plan failed we can opt for this one now. Also, if it got approved, I compromise myself in cleaning the disambiguation page (preferentially not alone).


Ugh I've tagged too many things as cute.
Should I be more specific in the future?

For the record your avatar (post #936429) is something I would classify as cute without hesitation and I think most users would agree. Even with its flawed implementation, I think this tag has value.

Well, yes, but I would say it isn't necessarily your fault.

I suggest you (and any person interested) to start using 'daww' for "adorable things", since it is a unambiguous and way more functional version of the 'cute' tag.

Ageed.
I don't know how may times I mentioned it until this point, but the problem isn't the tag's concept, it is the simple fact of 'cute' being ambiguous, hence a better name would be necessary.

I recommended seeing one of my posts on this same theread if you are interested (this one ); in which I explain that better.

Who are you talking to? Did you create a new account just to say this?

Welp, thread got "necro'd" by a spam account. Time to lock this stickied discussion thread.
