Merge Arabian/s with Middle Eastern. Essentially the same. It doesn't matter which name you keep.

Okay so I was bored, and saw there's a bit over 800 left with this tag. Almost done lynira.
That's a nice way to put it. smile
About two-thirds of the way done, compared to the original tag count, I think...
Quote
Where you can get rid of Bespectacled Protagonist and I added the proper Glasses-Wearing lead.
Took care of them. Thank you for your help. smile

This also has Stepfather/Stepdaughter Relationship and Stepmother/Stepson Relationship which most of the time I see those tags used more in a romantic sense ... I'm not sure if it's just supposed to be for a non romantic family bond, or just for those stories where the love interest happens to be a step parent and step child.
I see them used for both, some more than others. I can't think of a good way to fix this right now without making these already long relationship tags even longer.
Quote
Otona Pink Love Polygon should be deleted as it's only a love triangle with one female lead and two male leads, no other people for love interests.
Left Love Polygon; something about one of the male leads already having fallen for a different girl...?
Quote
There's also a bit with both Male lead and Seme ; Male lead and Uke. (I linked both the searches to save you the time from doing that. Still talking about the Glasses thing).
Done, thanks. Although, I'm regretting saying that it was okay to have separate seme and uke versions of the glasses tag... It already took a lot of effort and time just switching them all to "male lead" from "protagonist" for all those yaoi series (hundreds).
Quote
Is there really a need for Shota Protagonist and Shota Character/s? I mean there's a Shotacon genre ...
Those categories are bizarre. Seems like people often use them simply to mean young boy protagonists/characters, so I renamed them to Young Male Lead or deleted them where applicable.
Quote
A Lolicon tag has seemed to slip in even though there's already a Lolicon Genre.
deleted
Quote
There's also a Lolita/s tag which given the actual definition would be used in the same way as Lolicon and thus deleted, but it seems it's being used to describe the "Lolita Fashion" so the Lolita/s tag should probably be renamed (or deleted, I personally don't see a need to tag a manga with the way character/s would dress ... There's also a "Gothic Lolita/s" tag that should also get renamed or deleted ....
Yes, the Lolita/s tag must necessarily be used to refer to main characters wearing lolita fashion (and most often, the accompanying character traits), otherwise the tag would be redundant with the lolicon genre. As just mentioned, these characters tend to have certain personalities, so that's why I haven't deleted it. I decided to merge Gothic Lolita/s into Lolita/s, having it serve as an umbrella term for main characters wearing various types of lolita fashion (e.g., "sweet lolita" with its typical personality traits, and so on).
Quote
Speaking of Goth... There's a few tags that seem to be overlaying a bit like "Gothic", "Gothic Art Style", "Gothic Character", "Goths")
Goth fashion (and typical personality) is different from gothic lolita and from lolita fashion in general, it's more like a punk rock-influenced, rebellious sort of thing. I'm going to leave it alone for now.
I decided to merge Gothic (which seems to mean gothic literature style (e.g., Stoker's Dracula)) and Gothic Art Style into a new tag, Gothic Style, since the two (literature and art style) are pretty much always going to both occur together anyway.
Quote
Chobits has a few tags with negative scores, Hikikomori (-4), Lolicon as a Subplot (-4), Lolita/s (-4), Otaku (-4), Perverted Male Lead (-6)
deleted
Quote
Josei with Male Lead should probably merge into Female Demographic with Male Lead
Before Lookalike/s gets used too much that should probably merge into Doppelganger/s
done and done
Quote
Isn't Deity/ies and God/s the same thing and should be merged?
I merged Deity/ies into God/s. The only slight nuisance is that there is also a goddess tag, meaning that technically the series should be sorted into male and female. But, it's not unheard of in English to call a female deity a "god" rather than a "goddess," so I'm not going to spend time combing through the entries.
Quote
Ummmm is there a need for tags like "Mexico", "China", United Kingdom" "Japan" "America" "England" "North America" "Asia" "Europe" Etc.
I'm okay with tags being used to mark the country provided that the country is unusual (not Japan), and relevant to the plot. About this time last year, I had deleted the Japan tag, simply because there's nothing noteworthy about a manga being set in Japan (and advocated the use of tags like Japanese Politics and Japanese Society instead, for those manga that are actually about Japan). I've done the same again.
Quote
There's an "Impersonation" and "Impersonating Someone" tag (the latter I made) and they should probably merge ...
I merged Impersonation into Impersonating Someone (sounds more definitive).

Quote
"Mind Control" tag was deleted and all mangas have no mention of it anymore. I distinctly remember there were many under it.
I have started rebuilding this list it but can the previous lost list be recovered?
I see no problem with that tag and don't know why someone would have deleted it, but unfortunately, there is no way to recover deleted categories yet. You can usually find portions of those lists on Wayback Machine, but even so, it will still have to be re-added one by one.

Quote
Might I suggest merging the "Cool [character]" tags into the "Stoic [character]" tags? "Cool" seems incredibly vague to me as it could have at least two meanings, and I think the "Stoic" and "Cold" character tags already covers all of them.
I'm going to leave them as is. It's true that one of the meanings of "cool" is calm and composed, which is similar to stoic, but when used in a phrase like "cool male lead," it's pretty clear that it means attractive and impressive (as in, "He wears sunglasses indoors because he wants to look cool."). That's different from "stoic character" (enduring hardship without showing distress) and "cold character" (unfeeling or cruel).

I know you like the shortest possible name for tags, but if I can take another stab at changing the Lolita/s tag into "Lolita Fashion" (Or style?) mostly to avoid the confusion what the tag means.


You could always merge Goddess in God/s to make things easier laugh but I can see some having a fit over that ...


There's a Glasslamp Fantasy tag. Which I think was just spelled wrong ... as I tried googling it and it was asking if I meant "Gaslamp Fantasy" which makes a lot more sense.

Point taken. I went with Fashion Lolita/s, since, although it does sound a bit weird, I want the tag to be about the characters personalities, not just about clothes.

Quote

Yeah. That's why I compromised, not sorting through it but still leaving the female version, and, conveniently, I think that's totally fine for that particular term.

Quote

Changed it to Gaslamp Fantasy. I think most gas-powered lights are glass, but for the literature term, I think it's always either "gaslamp" or "gaslight."
