One Yukkuri Place

Question about the character tags

Posted under General

So now that we've got color-coded tags, should we start tagging the characters/types and retag the old ones with green tags? Or should they stay as general tags?

Also, about the artist tags, do we leave the 'artist___' part or should we just leave the artist name? I think the artist___ part is a bit redundant now that we have special tags, but I'm not sure.

I believe by tagging something with artist: you make it into an artist tag. Character:blah makes it into a character. I think the underline is what Toawa did to avoid tag collisions.

We have some stuff in place already, like character:cirno for cirno the youkai and character:letty. Converting a tag like Reimu to character:reimu is not really needed, I think.

What about for example...

reimu - For Yukkuri Reimu
hakurei_reimu or reimu_hakurei - For the actual Reimu.
cirno - For Yukkuri Cirno
cirno_(character) - For the actual Cirno. The same could easily be applied to all other single-named characters.

that's what we're doing.

Reimu = yukkuri Reimu.
Hakurei_Reimu = real deal
Cirno = cirno
Character:Cirno for fairy cirno

I'm assuming such posts as

are mistagged, then? I noticed that on some of the yukkuris based on single-named characters (well, it's actually just Cirno and Nazrin that I've seen for now) are tagged as character: tags instead of general. Is this intentional or...?

*head a splode*

Question guys, isn't it supposed to be flandre_scarlet/remilia_scarlet for the Characters instead of scarlet_flandre/scarlet_remilia?

They aren't Japanese AFAIK.

(EDIT: How do I mass-rename, if ever my suggestion is accepted?)

I think that using aliases is a much more time-efficient and convenient solution that works well.


I actually changed that pre-migration. We can change it back, the mass-edit function is only available to janitors and admins.

We can also use alias. if that suits our purposes.

How do we create a new character tag for Mima (character)? It automatically turns green for the yukkuri mima.

I've tried that as well, but it also turns green for yukkuri mima.

On another subject, why do we have a "yuka-chen" tag but not a "bushy reimu" tag?

Because a bushy Reimu is still a Reimu.

Hybrids, on the other hand, are different.
