    Oh, I'm sure it would happen, probably a bit, but that's the problem with internet stuff. People are dicks.

    Reporting should go both ways. i.e. an artist uses tags that are inappropriate, a community member adds tags that are incorrect.
    "To tell us that every species of thing is endowed with an occult specific quality by which it acts and produces manifest effects, is to tell us nothing; but to derive two or three general principles of motion from phenomena, and afterwards to tell us how the properties and actions of all corporeal things follow from those manifest principles, would be a very great step." -Issac Newton, Optics

    Naturally. Perhaps over time artists can learn proper tagging (or at least, not flipping out at the addition of a reasonable and proper tag) and those who use tags abusively can be located and rooted out of the community (or at least lose their tagging privileges).

    The current system doesn't really engender that, though.

    How about changing the system to simply disallow artists from touching community tags. If there's one the artist finds problematic then they can report it.

    It definitely seems like full submitter control over tags is at odds with the goal of having an active community tagging system. If people think that any tags they add will be summarily deleted, or even get them blocked, then they probably won't bother to try adding tags in the first place. If you want comprehensive, accurate tags then you'll probably have to actually prioritize that over other concerns.

    only problem I can see with that is if a viewing user abuses the tags on an artist's entire gallery, it'd just end up being much more work for the admins to have to go through and clearing out the mess.

    They couldn't view the submission page, or do any of the things doable on the submission page (fave, comment, etc.). But if you just want to be able to link references, direct image links will still function.

    I'll be honest, what you're suggesting as a solution seems like it would be difficult to implement and have very few use cases, so I'm trying to find a more general solution that still fixes your problem.

    I forget about the time involved in tagging to begin with, though - so this a good point and I like your idea better, actually! It sounds way simpler to implement and use.
    You can create a folder and set a folder option that nothing uploaded to it will appear on the front page. It's intended for designating a 'scraps' folder, but there's no restrictions on how you choose to actually use it.

    Expanding that option to be able to hide it from searches too seems reasonable to me. I'll float the idea past other staff.

    Yup. Though doing something like that is just begging for a ban (and can be resolved wholesale by just removing all tags created by that user on an artist).

    I'm really glad to have that feature pointed out again actually, because I didn't realize "Will not appear on your profile page or your submissions page" was an option in addition to that - this is very close and very good so I'll take it for now. o:

    And thank you for forwarding my search concern, still! Just hoping this didn't veer too off-topic here now, whoops.

    My main issue with allowing randoms to tag my work is that they tag it with a fetish that the image isn't even. I am speaking specifically for the people who tag "futa" or other such porn slurs on trans* images. I want nothing to do with your fetish; quit tagging my work with it.
