Tag Alias: genitals -> genitals_(disambiguation)

In category: Tag Alias and Implication Suggestions

Aliasing genitalsgenitals_(disambiguation)
Link to alias

Reason:

Ambiguous.
And it keeps getting tagged, despite the wiki. Should be either disambiguated or invalidated.

That makes it harder to find the posts that have been tagged genitals without having penis/pussy/etc tagged.

....though....

{{rating:e -genitals} might make it easier to search for 'missing penis/pussy/etc' tags.

but more realisitcally, that's a HUGE implication/alias and that's pretty system intensive to impliment.

Considering "genitals" can only be a penis or a pussy (and I guess balls) I don't think they need a grouping tag. That's just obnoxious. It should just be invalidated imo. Disambiguation is a dumb system.

Or a cloaca. Or some form of alien genitals that isn't readily identified as a penis or pussy.

*shrug*

Invalid tags are annoying. "Wait? what tag was invalid? which of all the tags that I typed in was the wrong one?" and I then waste a lot of time trying to figure out which of the 30 tags I typed is missing and it's just frustrating.

disambiguous tags make it really clear what the error was and provides suggestions on how to fix the matter.

As snowwolf said invalidation is even worse. That's a really dumb system, since you don't even know what was wrong.

I'm guessing invalidation are for things that shouldn't be tagged in the first place, so wouldn't it be better to just remove them? Optimal solution, if you ask me, would be to show 'invalid tag' only to the uploader, because noone else will have any idea what to do with it. I do however see that it would be complicated. So then again I guess 'invalid tag' doesn't do any damage even if it doesn'tt help anyone either.

But if it should leave any trace then I vote for disambiguation.

Ok, so there's 3...with one being extremelly rare compared to the other two, and if an alien's "genitals" aren't recognizable as a penis or a pussy they shouldn't be tagged as such...TWYS and all that. I could say that an aliens nose is actually its dick, but if it doesn't look like one that doesn't matter much.

Good? Most of the invalidated tags are really dumb. Maybe you should be punished with some frustration if you're trying to use them, that is if you even care enough to go over your posts after you post them...most people don't and leave a garbage heap of "x_(disambiguation)" tags in their wake, which someone else is going to have to go over for them later on. Much better to invalidate certain tags...removing "invalid_tag" is a fairly brain-dead procedure. See it, delete it, move on.

...mostly, my point is that there are more that two options, as opposed to what you said, which implied that there were only two. Plus, I can image something that doesn't look like penis or pussy that is clearly intended to be genitalia. *shrug*

See, there's this thing called a "typo"...

For example:

  • "action" is an invalid tag, but action_pose is not.
  • "after" is an invalid tag, but after_sex is not. Neither is after_masturbation, after_orgasm, afterglow, after_rape, or afternoon.
  • "and" is an invalid tag, yet is part of numerous tags: black_and_white, brother_and_sister, etc etc etc.
  • "skin" is an invalid tag, yet blue_skin is not. Nor are any of the other (color)_skin tags.

Other fun words that are invalid: Of, open, over, the, thigh, up,...

So, for example, I try to tag something like "after_sex" and accidentally type "after sex" and I am left with a mystery: 30 or 40 tags, and no clue what the missing one is.

And that's only swapping underscores for spaces--that's not even covering swapping letters or missing/adding letters to turn a valid tag into an invalid tag..

that is if you even care enough to go over your posts after you post them... most people don't and leave a garbage heap of "x_(disambiguation)" tags in their wake, which someone else is going to have to go over for them later on. Much better to invalidate certain tags...removing "invalid_tag" is a fairly brain-dead procedure. See it, delete it, move on.

ahem.. from invalid_tag:

if you see this tag, try to determine what may have caused it, then remove it from the picture.

Just because you can go along and spam -invalid_tag on all of the pictures doesn't mean you should.

For example "neuter" is an invalid tag. If there is castration occurring in the image, IT SHOULD BE TAGGED. That's why invalid_tag is a copyright tag--so it is bright purple and easy to notice on most pictures.

It should not be a a mindless procedure.
