One Yukkuri Place

Tag alias: puffing_up→puff-puff

Posted under General

going to use this post for discussion if you don't mind.

I'm wondering the validity of these because while it's consistent, it'd be hard to search for a new user (and can be annoying for old users).

First and foremost, the site is a yukkuri image repository. It needs to accomplish 2 primary objectivess:

1) store pictures
2) let others search said pictures.

That being said, i know we've had a discussion on mister_* items before and we decided to make everything into a mister_blah, but eventually reverted back to "ants" because it's just easier to search that way.

I think these fall under a similar set of circumstances. Would like to ask for input on this from the community...

I think keep tags in normal human words so that like poweryoga said, make it easier for newcomers to search and also because just because I like looking at yukkkuris I don't want to have to think like one or a kind who's just learning to speak, just to find images.

We can do implications, but I think aliasing is too much.

Any thoughts?

Implications should be fine.

I actually like puff puff instead of puffing up.

You like everything, though.

I vote against. Silly tag names like you_are_so_fucking_fucked are okay in small amounts, but "puff-puff" etc. would be just obnoxious.

I prefer puffing up to puff-puff because somewhat reminds me of the Dragon Quest puff-puff technique. For some reason it feels kind of weird searching for puff-puff than puffing up. That and saw someone's license plate say "ZPUFPUF".

Hold on, in the first place, should it be puff-puff or puff_puff?

I think puff-puff it's better, because it's sightly easier to type. But no matter what we choose, we should use the same character in all related tags.
Right now the implication is set to puff_puff, but that's inconsistent with other similar tags like lick-lick, stretch-stretch and rub-rub. This will be a source of tagging errors.

try to not use any hyphens for tags. We had issues in the past for searching.

edit:

Not sure if we should alias into puff_puff or etc at all. I think its the other way: if you have an implication one way you should point people to the "right" tag. Not to mention when I did the implication there were 0 tags called "puff-puff" or "puff_puff"

So, as an example, rub-rub should be rub_rub then. Skrib gets it!

Why not alias redundant tags? Like say, have all the action words aliased into their equivalent nouns (sleeping->sleep, dreaming->dream), or something like that.
