Tag Implication: hand_mirror -> mirror

Posted under General

Not sure how valid "x is a subset of y" is supposed to be. Sure, in common language, a hand mirror is a type of mirror, but danbooru tags don't often reflect common language.

A better question to ask is "do users searching for mirror want to find all the results for hand_mirror?". I'm not sure I'd want to find images with the mirror pointing away from the viewer.

  • Understandable, but at the same time, not all mirrors shown are reflecting the subject of the picture either. Mirrors by themselves are mere objects; if one wanted to find specifically use of a mirror such that the camera can see the image in it, the reflection tag in conjunction works just fine, and has to be done already to omit the aforementioned non-reflecting mirrors.Pun not intended.
