Alias shaded to shading

In category: Tag Alias and Implication Suggestions

This would both make it consistent with the other shading tags cel_shading and soft_shading and also remove confusion when tagging since currently shading is an invalid tag.

It was invalidated under the justification of being a too common technique (forum #180438 forum #180385)

... Am I the only one that see this as a kind of stupid reason?

Edit: I accidentally typed the second phrase as an affirmation.

That's fair enough, but in that case shaded should be invalidated.

Wait, what?

I) There are a considerable percentage of posts that aren't shaded (not the majority, but a considerable percentage).

II) A post could be shaded, flat colored or neither of those (some monochromatic posts, usually uncolored).

III) There is a plenty of shading methods, variations and related techniques: soft shading, cell shading, hatching, crosshatching, chiaroscuro etc.

I don't feel like debating whether or not it should be a valid tag. If it's not supposed to be a tag, so be it. If people want to bring it back, then there should be consistency.


I just bumped into this.

I was following e621:tagging_checklist, which endorses shading. I misspelled it as shaded in the upload form, which is aliased to invalid_tag. Pretty frustrating.

Like regsmutt, I care more about the inconsistency between shaded (invalid) and shading (perfectly fine) than I care about whether or not this is a thing that we should be tagging at all.

Could the alias at least be moved to a shading_(disambiguation) page?
