Tag Alias: :q to licking_lips

I could swear I've seen a few pics here where the character is clearly making that expression yet not licking their lips - for example, sticking one's tongue out while concentrating on playing a video game.

If it's indicating concentration then I think it should be tagged concentrating.

:q is a terribly unintuitive name for a tag. I would much prefer to have it replaced by other tag(s) if at all possible.

That's been discussed many times previously. Smileys are supposed to represent exactly what they look like. Descriptive tags should express some kind of intent or higher-level interpretation. That's why we haven't aliased them previously, and I don't see it happening for :q unless we completely change the policy on that.

Yeah. The problem with using word-tags for expressions that match the emoticon is that the emoticon is actually much more specific in those cases. There are many words and phrases that could describe the action, but only one emoticon really.

It just gets messy as it starts to look less like the emoticon, which is a valid problem.

I skimmed the first few pages under :q and can testify that none of the posts under it resemble the emoticon to such an extent that it can't be better described by words.
