How many times do I have to say that I'm not talking about the title? "Touhou breasts" wouldn't be specific to that artist. All of the posts in rokugatsu_t 4koma are in pool:3499, and all of the posts in pool:3499 are in rokugatsu_t 4koma. They are the same. We don't need a pool when just searching for rokugatsu_t 4koma gets you the same results: all of that artist's 4koma. That's my point.
Let me ask you this (better example):
A new artist creates a single story. They call it jim_bob Meiling. All the images have Meiling in them and it happens to be a 4koma (or any type of comic). This would be tag searchable but is still a story unto it's own. Does the rule apply?
He now creates 6 more stories all involving meiling under the same title. Does that change anything since it should more or less have continuity.
Think about someone like colonel_aki. If you did a tag search colonel_aki and 4koma you would get all of Life of Maid. He does have more then one 4koma series but assuming it was his only one, the pool and the tag search would end up with the same results (regardless of the title of the comic).
Which is more or less what I was getting at. Any artist that currently has a single 4koma (regardless of name or continuity) would also fall afoul of that rule.
That is why I asked. The rule seems to trip over itself in this situation. It is not a situation where someone is simply taking two tags boobs and ass and making a pool, it is a specific comic design by the artist itself.
Anyone else have 2 cents to toss in?
