Pools for pixiv projects

Posted under General

I wanted to make this thread a while ago, but I didn't feel it was relevant back then.

So, we have created a few pools in the past which are based entirely on the existance of a tag at the pixiv source.

The earliest one I remember is pool #323 - Touhou - Let's Make Touhou Kids!
All images in the pixiv project are tagged "東方子作りしましょ!", which is essentially a pixiv equivalent of touhou if_they_mated.
Now, the rule for what goes in the pool is simple. Is it tagged "東方子作りしましょ!"?
Yes: include
No: don't include

These are the problems I have experienced with such pools:
1. They are essentially redundant with tag searches
2. Danbooru users don't care about the rule. Even after the project is finished, they add any touhou if_they_mated image into it.
3. Pixiv tags can be added by any user and pixiv users care even less than we do.
4. pool:323 bad_id: If a post is in the pool, but no longer on pixiv, you cannot tell if problem #2 happened or not.

I made this thread because of pool #7030 - Touhou Armored Warriors
with these 2 questions:

1. Do we want such a pool?
2. If yes, how do we enforce the rules and avoid the 4 problems stated above?

So posts should only qualify for these pools if the artist was the one who added the Pixiv tag?

I doubt that could be enforced. I could see casual Danbooru users not knowing how to check the tags on Pixiv before adding to the pool (or they just won't read the pool's description).

IMHO there's no point in having pools that can be covered by tags, be it about pixiv projects or whatever.

I agree. We have no reason to mimic Pixiv's tags perfectly.

+1 for deleting pool #323 and pool #7030.

I didn't come here to get pool #323 deleted...
I just used it as an example for being the first one I know of. There are many more pixiv tag -> danbooru pool:

pool #533 - Touhou - Gothic Lolita
pool #2352 - Touhou - Let's draw short-haired Hinanawi Tenshi (I thought this had already been deleted)
pool #531 - Touhou - Kindergarten
pool #486 - Touhou Parka Girls
pool #2193 - Touhou - Corrupted by Evil
pool #1441 - Touhou - All Seme Wriggle
pool #1765 - Touhou - Costume Examination (this could really become a general "costume examination" pool or tag)
pool #588 - Touhou - Vampire Chain
