:3 Heya all!
Sorry to bother you XD I just... thought I'd talk to someone about this because it just seems that no one seems to really bother with the keywords too much yet.
Keywords seem to be a very important thing to this site as they assist the user in parsing content to themselves, and way from themselves. It not only helps promote you toward the crowd you desire, but also helps you get more watches and faves because users do not have to wade through content they do not wish to see to watch you (a problem with FA.) Users will not watch artists where they feel they will be assaulted with content that they do not wish to see so it is in every artists best interest to include proper keywords.
Such things should include:
1.) genders, an image should always include a gender, especially in nude or pictures of nude content so it makes its way to its appropriate party and can be filtered out by those who are offended.
2.) fetishes (see above) helping some of us weed out the more unnerving fetishes, and putting it in the hands of those who want it :3
3.) points of interest / focus, for example, in non adult pictures if you're focused on the character, say jogging, add it. In adult pictures if your point of view, or focus is particularly on someone's butt, mention it.
4) species (obvious reasons)
:3 I don't really need to stress that by adding the appropriate keywords adds monumental value to the whole site as users are able to find and hide the content they want, a point that this site is prided for. (edit:) Also, keep in mind, those people who might be using excessive tags that don't actually have anything to do with their picture, you're just as likely to trip a block as you are to trip a search :3 don't do it.
I hope in future revisions of the site that there is a box with common keywords to click and add to your submission (where the user is encouraged to read through them and select) as well as a custom keyword box.
At the very least list the genders of all characters in a picture and any fetishes that could be problematic with other users. The rest is more or less to help people find content. :3
Thanks for reading this. :3 Hope I didn't ramble on too much.
