Danbooru-based image board with a specialization in high-quality images.
I would say keep xmas and valentine tags, many artworks are made especially for those events and have some related "hints" in them.
Remove all tags other then copyright, character, circle, artist & faults. I know it won't be popular.

I like that idea.

censored is a useless tag IMO since censoring is required in Japan.
Don't worry aoie, I wasn't going to touch dress or summer dress. The holiday theme tags will probably stay as well. As for censored, I dislike uncensored more. I don't really care which, but I'd rather just pick one, so you can search with -censored or -uncensored.

I don't know yet if I want to remove all general type tags. I don't use most of them myself (sorry for making you do all the work, vistigris). I know you don't use the blacklist, but there are others like me who do. And most of the stuff on that list is general tags, with a couple artists sprinkled in. I certainly don't mind pruning general tags a little, which is basically what I'm doing (albeit very slowly).

Uncensored is more useful since it's less used and can be used to either search for fan decensored stuff or alternatively to remove fan decensored stuff from a search.
I think just 'photoshop' or not is enough to divide censored or uncensored.
It depends on how specific we want to go about doing our tagging. "Photoshop" is an all around term for anything altered with comparison to the original. Which includes cen and uncen like midzki just posted.
Yeah, and not everyone who wants to remove the 'uncensored' tag is necessarily going to want to remove all 'photoshop' tags as well, I think it's best to keep them seperate.
hm I have few proposals for tags we could delete

underboob, I always tried to figure what is so important to see "under boobs" before you are below waist
cleavage, girls have boobs so they have cleavage... and those who don't are loli ^.-
kitsune, or why don't we have tags like frog, inu, neko for all those animal ears girls?
erect nipples, no idea how to comment this one
cameltoe, imo it is covered by tag pantsu usually
dress, I think if girls are not naked, have seifuku or swimsuit so are 90% of them are in some kind of dress, oh we have kimono tag for 5% of those remaining too

edit: one more tag: pireze
Thoughts on demon_eyes (post #8531) ?

He doesn't sign his vectors, but tags them. Should we move the tag to the source field or change the tag to 'Artist' ?
hm I don't think we should make tags for people who vector images, but putting him under source would be ok
pireze is a source, go ahead and remove that one.

demon_eyes - unless it's a copyright or an artist himself, remove it. Now if he was vectoring his own illustrations it would be perfectly fine too.
vector should be called wannabe is made by an non-japanese. *nods*

I'll move it to source when I have a minute.
I'm okay with keeping most of the tags that you listed, Imbir, mainly for rating reasons.
underboob covers what cleavage doesn't, and we don't have a sideboob tag, which I'd delete anyways. I'll admit that cleavage is somewhat subjective, but I basically describe it as lots of boobage showing due to a low neckline.
kitsune girls are the most common, I think. Nekomimi, inumimi, bunny ears, bunny girls and animal ears cover most of the rest.
Cameltoes apply to swimsuits as well. I use this and erect nipples to make sure things are rated correctly, quickly (these belong in questionable).
I've always been a little iffy about dress, but it's common enough and you'll have to take it up with aoie. :P

Anyways, here is the list of tags I am working my way through. It used to be 40 pages, but it's shrinking slowly.
http://moe.imouto.org/tag?name=&type=0&order=date
Simply, I also do not think dress is an important tag, but I just like the tag and more specifically the summer dresses. But as you are going, we're merging tags so they each fit into a category for simpler searching and dress would fit nicely enough into what you've been doing, Aurelia.

For not just keep it ^^

*kitsune and bunnygirls are nouns, and at the moment I don't have any word that can combine these at the moment, so from here it's your decision either to merge them or remove them.

*nekomimi and inumimi are adjectives to describe but animal ears has it covered, so the removal of those 2, I wouldn't fret about to much.

Or you can add an implication to those 4. But since we're in the process of the removal of tags, implications might not be the best of thing to use for it and more for copyrights and artists.
hum... is wallpaper being kept, or is it going away?

silly me ^^

It'll stay.
A couple of questions then, for whoever reads this thread:
1. How do people feel about bed and beach?
2. Would you prefer to merge nekomimi, inumimi, etc. into animal_ears or implications?
3. Some people didn't seem to get the message that some tags aren't in use anymore (blush especially), so I have to do some periodic checking up and cleaning out. I was thinking about aliasing several of these into a "deletethistag" sort of thing, so I could just mass edit those out. Thoughts?

I'm still ambivalent about kitsune and related. I'll think about it more.
1. Not sure at the moment.
2. I think we should keep them and add implications.
3. Yah, we don't like to use personal state as a tag ^^. Ha, that's a neat idea and I can't believe I never thought of that. That would be terribly useful. You got my vote on that, on tags that users may want to add, but we have tried to totally remove from the site, an implication to them to a tag like "deletethistag" should fully suffice, since it would ease the moderation on them and explain to the users that it's not in use no more.
I would delete bed and beach tags, my reason for deleting tags like this, it is either keep them and start to add similar tags like chairs, forest, field, etc, etc. or how do you want to explain why beach is ok and forest is not?

I would merge all animal ears tags under one, most of them look very similar with excpetion of bunny ears maybe

I don't know what to say about unused tags, just delete them?
Nekomimi is by far the most common so I'd say leave that seperate if the rest are to be merged into animal_ears.

animal ears 567
inumimi 74
bunny ears 312
nekomimi 1514

So yeah, I'm definitely for keeping nekomimi seperate.
-I aliased blush so far to deletethistag.

-Planning on merging inumimi and bunny ears into animal ears. Will suggest the animal ears implication for nekomimi.

-I'm definitely getting rid of kupaa (http://danbooru.donmai.us/wiki/show?nordirect=1&title=kupaa ).

-bed and beach will be going.

Speak now if you have objections, or forever hold your peace!
I'd merge nekomimi too in animal ears. Less tags, less trouble.
breast grab and thighhighs/pantyhose/stockings?

- wings
- demon_eyes
- symmetrical_docking? I don't even get this at all. I see is 2 women embracing each other?
- nipples? aren't breasts enough for you guys?
- megane? fetish i think?
- shimapan? come again?
- skirt_lift
- cleavage? what else would you see?

I understand lingerie and bikinis/bras that's okay I guess but come on...

And what about open shirt? Wouldn't undressing be a much better tag for these types?

As if for now.
I think wings, megane should stay, reason is that there is no way to search for them in any other way, and wings can cover all kind of angels/demons/bird-girls(birdbrain girls :) ) unless we will have tags for demons angels and all other kind of winged girls?

That can be arranged.

Breast grab, thighhighs and pantyhose are staying. Stockings can probably be merged with thighhighs since the difference is slight.
Feito, try reading the description associated with some of the tags (click on the little '?' next to it), or search Danbooru's wiki.

I thought demon_eyes was taken care of already? Radioactive should be, if it hasn't yet. Skirt lift can probably go; the rest are staying.

Anyways, I want to get deletions and merges done quickly before I forget them, but I don't want to be too hasty. More opinions are always appreciated before I make any final decisions.

Give me a chance.
I have only one thing to say.
some meaningless silly things make the world flourish, so please not too strictly.
Agreed with midzki, you guys are getting way too overzealous with the pruning now.
