solo_male tag

In category: Tag/Wiki Projects and Questions

Can we implement this tag already? I can't be the only one sick of seeing all these males doing nothing but showing their dicks off, it's becoming an increasing annoyance having to scroll past so many lame-o male pictures in search of good art.


... do you mean you want to blacklist solo male? Having a tag for when there are already tags for that combination is redundant, for searching and blacklisting purposes using the tags solo and male would result in images featuring only men being found or blacklisted.


Nothing has changed since 6 months ago (forum #242144).

How would one go about blacklisting images with groups of males that aren't necessarily male/male?

...what? Are you sure you that know what I was talking about?

Yes, I know exactly what you were talking about. You can blacklist a tag combo and you were saying you can combine "solo" and "male" to blacklist images of solo males.

I'm saying how would you do that with groups of males? What would the blacklist combo be for that?

male group -female -ambiguous_gender -intersex. This blacklists images where there are only men of at least 3 (group).

I'm not hyper-focused on them being in a group per se. My point was how to blacklist male-only images with more than one male, sorry if I expressed that poorly. I assume I could do that by using "male -female -ambiguous_gender -intersex", right?

That would blacklist any post that is tagged male unless the post's tagged female, ambiguous_gender, or intersex. This would prevent you from seeing solo males, duos with only men, and groups comprised of only men. If you want to see solo men, add -solo in there as well.

But yes, male -female -intersex -ambiguous_gender would blacklist all posts that only have men, and exclude any posts with men and women, intersex, or ambiguous genders.

That seems like it'd do it. Testing it out in my blacklist seems to work, aside from a couple 'probably male ambiguous' and 'thumbnail looks like a mistag' image.

There's always going to be images here and there that slip through the cracks, all that we have to do is to add the missing tag, hit refresh, and poof. Image is gone from the search.


male -female -intersex -ambiguous_gender
what's the point of even having 'male' in there at that point he could just blacklist -female -intersex and -ambiguous individually and that would serve the same function if not better since no images lacking gender tags would slip through.

That would inadvertently blacklist zero_pictured. The user outright stated that they wanted to remove posts containing only men, your suggested would also blacklist posts containing no gender whatsoever. If the user also not wants to see those then by all means, but it's less messy to use the aforementioned blacklist combo than to also add more -tags to fill in the holes left when posts legitimately won't have genders.

Actually, blacklisting them individually like I suggested would be even worse, only things that were all three would show up because I wasn't thinking, and they should actually all be tagged in a group.

your suggested would also blacklist posts containing no gender whatsoever. If the user also not wants to see those then by all means, but it's less messy to use the aforementioned blacklist combo than to also add more -tags to fill in the holes left when posts legitimately won't have genders.

Preferably, there wouldn't be any posts that lack either gender (m, f, intersex, ambiguous) tags or zero_pictured (even though in reality about 2% of all posts)


You had this thread 6 months ago, plenty of information was added there for you to blacklist it.
forum #242144

Don't make duplicate threads. I've taken the liberty of adding solo male to your blacklist.
