BUR #14558 has been approved by @nonamethanks.

deprecate bangs
nuke bangs

Mandatory controversial topic of the month.

  • this tag is equivalent with the frontpage. At the moment, 1/4 of all of the posts on danbooru have this tag. Even characters with really long front hair which don't exactly fall under bangs get the tag anyway due to parted bangs
  • we have so many bangs styles for anyone who wants to search for proper bangs. blunt bangs, asymmetrical bangs, braided bangs, etc. The umbrella tag is pointless.
  • it makes much more sense to have a no bangs tag than this mess

This tag serves no purpose other than to inflate tag count.

Updated

My argument in favour of nuking bangs is that, for the same reason we do not simply use clothes tag when there are more recognizable, more specified clothing article-related terms like t-shirt, serafuku, military uniform etc. We do not even use hair while clearer hair length and colour-related tags are available. (+1)

While still being discussed on a controversial topic, is it recommended not to use bangs when the uploader cannot simply recognize what type of bangs does the character's hairstyle have? I did not even tag post #5992679 with bangs.

im guessing since both admins are in favor of this its basically a done deal, but i want to say that i really do find this tag useful

I struggle to find a use for this tag that isn't covered by any of the specific hairstyle tags, and realistically speaking pretty much every character that isn't bald or has parted bangs (which already implies bangs anyway) hair slicked back or bangs pinned back could be argued that has bangs to some degree or another.

parted bangs implies bangs because it shouldn't be used on posts where there are no bangs being parted. Stuff like post #5994411 and post #5994044 is rightly not tagged as parted bangs.
