    This is where I stand. I had a lot of hope for Weasyl, but unless they let artists disallow community tagging, I will be staying with FA until it burns to the ground, and only keep Weasyl as a tiny side gallery.

    Random people don't get to mislabel MY ART. It's mine, I own the rights to it. I shouldn't have to undertake a bunch of extra steps just to get it displayed correctly.

    How about an "Approve this Tag* system for artists to click yes/no in adding a tag that people have suggested?

    A good idea!

    You could also maybe have a toggle, if you set it on you get to approve all tags before they appear, or you can disable it and let anyone tag your shit up.

    It's still giving artists absolute control over their art. The real question is whether that's what should be done, considering they can easily just spam "safe" tags all over their erotica. Little Big Planet had a community driven tag system and in general it worked fabulously.
    "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

    The real question about who should have full rights over the tags and who shouldn't is this: Is this site meant for artists or not?
    If you wanna remove the artists absolute control over tags by standard (and not just after abusing the system) then the answer is No.

    Yes this system works fine on many other platforms, but the reality of those platforms also is that they are meant for watchers first and creators second.

    I think opting for approval-required tags wouldn't be a /bad/ idea
    I'd have it off by default so community tagging doesn't put work on the artist, but for those who are sensitive about their tags it might help them manage their own work.
    It's not like people would use it to actively abuse the system.

    I think something like LBP is different because here there's adult work and situations like taasla brings up are a good example of that (although if someone is consistently tagging your stuff incorrectly and it bothers you I think maybe asking them to stop or reporting it might be a good idea)

    That's a pretty good idea. Regardless of extremes, I think the best situation is one where there are two distinct tag sets (i.e. artist/community) so having the "community" set be optional seems like a good compromise. Those artists who wish for more exposure can allow for community tags, and those who'd want to have strict control can turn it off.

    You could also, if you really want to make it complicated, make hidden tags.
    Tags that aren't visible to anyone but the artist, and won't show up in search, but will be picked up by the blocking filter.
    So as things can be tagged as something people don't want to see, but also not attract views from something the artist doesn't want their art associated with.

    And it works with the artist approval of added tags thing suggested. Tags added by the community would be invisible until approved (or not) by the artist.
    So that if it's tagged by someone who are blacklisting the tag, the submission will disappear from their view instantly, while the tag won't be visible on the submission itself or in search results before the artist approves the tag (or sends it to invisible for good.)

    my concern is that it gives too much power to the non-artist community.

    I know what my work should be tagged, not you.
