is there a way to search images lacking copyright / character tags?

Posted under General

I've noticed in some cases an image does get tagged with a char / copyright but the tags were not prefixed so they have not become color-coordinated.

I'm kinda manually going through (the hover option for tags is helpful) but was wondering if as a time saver anyone knew how to encode a search where it would only show images lacking a "character:X" or "series:y" type of tag.

I know you can limit searches by using a minus sign preceding a tag, but I'm trying to exclude an entire classification of tag instead, basically looking for places where the tags need to be improved.

I'm not aware of a way to specifically find posts that don't have a character or source listed. There are tags that are used to indicate they are missing (source_request, character_request, artist_request), so your best bet (as far as I'm aware) is to use those.
