On "subjective" tags

Posted under Tags

So, a recent thread about wanting some things gone got me thinking.

I don't exactly mind them, and while I know that most of those have very few posts; I'd like to know what users think about rather subjecive tags. For further explanation, those tags that are basically applied based on points of view or the tagger's opinion.

To list a few examples, tags such as sexy, cute and the minor related tags (cute loli, cute boy, apparently cute fang and cute fangs, cute eyes, cute expression, cute face...), beautiful, and while this is just nitpicking, the naming of bewitching little thighs given the amount of flat-chested shortstack seen as petite by a majority, both within the tag and outside of it.

The latter I am not counting as a subjective tag since its own wiki page explains its use, and I understand that it wouldn't exactly be bare thighs or bare legs. Again, this is simple curiosity and I do not mind such tags, but I am curious about others' view on this.

I don't always use these tags, but when i do i want to emphasize on the emotions of the character based on the way they are drawn.

I personally don't think they're needed or should be used since that's very opinion-based and tags are supposed to be fact attached to an image to make it easier to search for.

The cute_fang and cute_fangs tags are actually an anime trope called

YAEBA

In Japan, yaeba (八重歯, lit. 'double tooth') are human teeth, especially upper canines, with an uncommonly fang-like appearance. In Japan it is perceived as a sign of youthfulness and natural beauty.

My curiosity is kinda related to such things, would that be considered different to fang and fangs? As in the use and such; I've used an example before with bewitching little thighs.

Which I understand if it wouldn't exactly be that.

Those tags suck and I would love to see them gone. Make a fav group if you want to sort a group of your favorite pics based on a subjective quality.

Not a fan either, mostly because its the newest posts that gonna end up tagged like that while the 3+ years ones dont and it just gonna end up half assed and without much standard
