We still have a Discord server, come talk to us! Want to advertise on e? ! Posted under Tag Alias and Implication Suggestions. Both are subjective as hell but if one exists then I should be able to easily find that kind of content by searching a single word tag rather than have horror be invalidated for no good reason.
Updated by stalkerd about 4 years ago. See forum It's subjective, and the wiki entry is a mess. Updated by anonymous over 4 years ago. Genjar said: See forum Yet those don't seem notably different from regular nightmare fuel to me. It is very effective to keep people from downvoting a post to hell or leave nasty comments like this. The tag should be fixed rather than dismissed entirely.
The two are not interchangeable, even if they are related. Same here. Hence why I suggested using the Horror tag. Rather than invalidating another useful tag for people to use which is completely unreasonable and silly. Why not alias a useful tag thats already invalidated for some unknown reason into it so its easier to use. That is, for when a piece of art is drawn in a surrealistic and thereby disturbing style or when it is deed to be creepy. IE: rotting flesh and "unspeakable" or eldritch creatures. See any art of any Eldrazi for the most part and they normally fit into this bracket by de.
Theres a reason to use these tags for people who want to find it because they enjoy it, and for people to blacklist as a handy tool. We cant afford to be trigger happy to get rid of useful things because one person personally dont use them. Yes someone out there wants to fuck the swamp thing. And yes someone else out there thinks its terrifying. This is no different and your immediate response shouldnt be "hey lets get rid of this because I dont personally use it.
It boggles my mind why parasprite got rid of the useful horror tag for no reason in the first place when theyre literally both for the same thing. As I just said, horror is not necessarily nightmare fuel. The best analogy I can use is "all beetles are insects, but not all insects are beetles". Take for example classic monster movies like the WolfmanNosferatuand the Blob they are considered part of the horror genre, but aren't particularly scary by today's standards. Nightmare fuel takes horror to a whole new level from being so visually disturbing that I inspires nightmares.
Whereas horror can be much tamer by comparison. There's already scarycreepyand grimdarkwhich is bad enough. Throwing in horror too would just muddle it further. Especially when nobody's been able to explain what's the difference. Like I said, the current wiki entries are a mess. Next line: The tag scary, creepy or similar does not refer to this.
No wonder nobody tags these consistently. We're going to need proper definitions for these first, before even thinking about restoring related tags. Certainly doesn't help that the concept of nightmare fuel is common knowledge, and too broad to fit under a single tag. I really don't know why someone once saw such aliases as good ideas they hadn't any avalible thread, at least I couldn't found any. Horror is a feeling and genre named after the feeling it should evoke. Nightmare fuel is immanently disturbing.
Horror as a genre is not necessarily disturbing, or at least not necessarily disturbing on a present, visceral level. Although I should "know better" than to lump Lovecraft wholesale in with horror, splitting that hair here would be a fruitless endeavor and waste of the casual user's time. Terror is usually described as the feeling of dread and anticipation that precedes the horrifying experience. By contrast, horror is the feeling of revulsion that usually occurs after something frightening is seen, heard, or otherwise experienced.
It is the feeling one gets after coming to an awful realization or experiencing a deeply unpleasant occurrence. In other words, horror is more related to being shocked or scared being horrifiedwhile terror is more related to being anxious or fearful. Horror has also been defined as a combination of terror and revulsion. In that sense, horrifying would be a better descriptive form of the word that disambiguates the tag from the genre.
Speaking of Semantically, there's obviously an important distinction between the ideas, but I highly doubt e will see a post where Lovecraft should be tagged but not his mythos. Just Google boner kill thread for examples, not that I recommend poring over them. Alias initiated by former staff aurali for the reason "redundant use of the alias", date not recorded. A Google image search of go to sleep makes that relationship clear.
That originating context can be transplanted e. As a rule, I won't dignify creepypasta and SCP stuff by actually reading them. I'm a Weird genre snob that way, so no comment from me on what that context specifically is.
Aliased August by Riversyde for the reason of redundant tagging? Somewhat related, go to sleep can also imply or suggest someone's death, similar to take a dirt nap. The er of this post tagged it with horror, if horror's one current search result means that. I'm glad horror is invalidated As the posters explained, those aren't the same thing.

By default a limited blacklist has been applied hiding content that is commonly objected to. You may remove items from this blacklist by using the blacklist menu item.

We already have other trigger tags such as Trypophobia available for blacklist. Demesejha said: [snip] As I just said, horror is not necessarily nightmare fuel. Next line: The tag scary, creepy or similar does not refer to this So it's for creepy mental imagery that's not scary or creepy?
Well, that's plain as day. May someone please answer the question I made in my first post? Thirtyeight Member. Those were last tagged in Don't worry about it.
Cheese graters are only nightmare fuel when used incorrectly. Over 18? I agree and am over 18 I do not agree, or am not overE621 nightmare fuel
