Check mikupa. The whole point of this topic is to bring up the fact that there isn't a single picture under mikupa that's related to the concerts.
I was getting into how the tag should be spit if they were split. I missed the forest for the trees.
Also as it stands even without concert images the tag is being used incorrectly.
- Concert images should be easy enough to find with concert + mikupa if there are any and assuming people can tag worth a damn.
- You could make mikupa specific to the concert(s) and create a new tag for all the non concert images but the question is what would be overall more confusing?
That's the idea, and there are plenty such pictures to occupy a 39 tag.
pointless if it is used incorrectly though.
This is untrue. It could have 2012, 12, Heisei 24, or just be a picture of a dragon.
While I can see what you are saying here to me the difference is this:
2012 is specific and understandable to everyone putting in the tag search. That is 2012 is identical in tag and meaning. You want the year or number.
39 being used for 3/9 is not necessarily obvious (it's specific to miku) to most users and is not consistent since day/month or month/day vary by country.
I am not saying don't do it, I am trying to give my reasoning since you said the tag got nuked before.
Figured I could clarify my position more.
First, there's no need to treat tags like a limited resource.
No one does.
Third, slippery slope arguments are invalid. Just because we have tags for eye color doesn't mean we need one corresponding to every color in a 120 count box of Crayola Crayons. Or just because we have a 2girls tag doesn't mean we need one for 10girls.
Slippery slope does "matter" since people were making 7girls and such tags. There was a discussion which all 7/8/9girls tags became 6+girls.
People try to tag everything as correctly as they can and things can get out of hand.
I don't think it is an issue here but it does happen.
A tag's merits should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. I hope I made my case for a 39 tag, though if someone's missing the point, note that I'm just trying to find something to rename mikupa to. To say that there's no need for such a tag is to say that the content under mikupa need not be tagged together as such, and mikupa should cease to exist (so long as there is no truly mikupa-related content on Danbooru).
You have to remember you are effectively creating a new type of date tag. While it might be fine it is the only example of a month tag (that I could find) is 9/11.
Anyway this all being said, if nothing happens with the thread on way or the other in the next few days I would make the tag and see what happens.
