Thoughts on Inkbunny!

Furaffinity is still my primary use site (to be honest, I really only use this as a mirror and to look at references I am sent) BUT, in general, I like Inkbunny. The tip jar thing is cool and once the paid submissions thing gets back up, I could see myself using it for hi-res files or comics (if I ever got around to making some) etc.

My only problem with inkbunny is the lack of consistency/monitoring of tags :/ I love the hell out of the blocking by keywords thing, but the fact that I have several variants of what should be the same thing blocked ("cub", "cubs", and "underage" is an example) means that I periodically come across more stuff I have to block, just because someone has changed the spelling or term from what's explicitly on my list. I've also encountered so far at least one artist I blocked outright because they weren't tagging anything blockable (such as writing the characters' names instead of the visual content of the image, e.g. "cubs"). :T

some level of community tagging would be helpful, I think. I'd also think that artists would want to have a standardized thing, or to be descriptive in tagging, because it helps group more of the same stuff together. If I upload a tiger but don't tag it "tiger", how are fans of tigers going to find it? That kind of thing.

the tag stuff is really minor, though. the fact that I CAN block stuff at all pretty much makes me happy. <3

I've bothered Starling about community tagging for months now. He says he's doing it. Apparently it's harder to implement that it seems. Remember it can be open to abuse (tagging a work cub when the artist didn't mean it, etc)

Yeah, I'm aware of the potential for abuse (I've seen it on livejournal). I know e621 has some system of standardization, but I think that's enforced at the approval of images level, and that could potentially interfere with a free uploading system? I'm sure there's no perfect solution, or at least no simple one. I think maybe a "do you agree with this tag?" type thing could be used to "downvote" incorrect or inappropriate tags, but that sounds like a coding nightmare. XD

i hate how i still see cub stuff too, i have every word i can think of for it blocked... but i think minus the cub porn etc this site is better then fa plus fa is way out dated (gui) etc

yeah, FA is really showing it's age... I just keep hanging on to it because I have so many watchers and friends over there, plus artists on FA who won't post over here... sigh.
