Unable to edit "toon_link" as a character tag

Posted under Tags

I've been trying to fix Toon Link's tag to the character tag category. But every time I try to. It doesn't work. Could someone please fix that tag so it's in the character category?

DTMC, do you have the ability to fix these issues with a couple of clicks, or do you have to do it the hard way? I've been fixing them the hard way when I can, but if you are able to do it easily, I may just bring them here to the forum.

And "the hard way" entails removing posts from the tag until all the posts that are blocking the change are gone from it. (Removing meaning normally moving them to a temporary tag name) If I knew how to find the problem posts easily, that would also make it simpler, but for now this works, as long as there are not too many posts in the tag. A couple of hundred I can handle with the tag script mode. A thousand (or more) is pushing it, and at that point I usually shrug and move on.

@Leortha i can change the color as long as the tag is under 1k. you could have told me you were editing that many tags. i made you a builder to make your life a little easier. you can now change tag colors up to 1k after that the color wont change. there other things buildsrs can do but im not fully familar with what i will have to experiment. hope that helps.

Looking at the notes the other thing that most jumps out at me, Builder looks to be able to edit tag aliases. I'll experiment with this at some point, but if so I can see myself making definite use of that.

Thank you very much for the additional permissions.

np! and ive tried i dont think builder can and only admins can for some reason. but please confirm for me. alot of the wiki data was just copied over from danbooru. the same rules and permission dont apply here so ive been correcting that as i go.

Looking at the alias's page I don't see any new links that would allow me to edit them, or even better to add new ones.

One thing I have noticed is that I am suddenly able to vote posts up and down. I had been wondering how to do that, and now it appears that it was locked behind the access levels. I would think that would be something that normally would be allowed more generally. Base users can up/down vote comments, but not posts themselves.

yeah this site has weird kwirks lol

How about the tag "old_school_academy". This should be an Artist tag. But I've tried several times to change it, both as an edit to a pic and in the UI to directly change tag types. And I get each time what are likely timeout errors. Quantity is a little under 1K items. If you are not able to quick-convert it I'm fine to do it the hard way (as described above), but I want to exhaust easy way options before I start mass moving posts to a temp tag to try to get it down to a small enough number to get under whatever timeout is happening.

"old_school_academy" is aka "amedama_akihito".

Would you like me to change all "old_school_academy" to "amedama_akihito"?

If "old_school_academy" is preferred, let me know, and i'll change it the other way and fix the tag color as well.

Hmm. Unless there is a clear rule that says one or the other, I tend to merge to the more populated one. But in this case the difference isn't that big on a pair of tags both within the neighborhood of 1K posts. So yeah, they should merge, but that does not help for direction.

I would lean towards the Japanese name, as that's the rule for characters. But I don't know if the same rule holds for artist/doujin circles.

Honestly, beyond that I don't have a strong opinion which way they should merge, but I agree they should merge one direction or the other.
