Solo tag

1boy 1girl solo

There are a lot of pictures like that with at least two actors and solo tag. Does solo tag have some special meaning on gelbooru?

As for why I ask this question, I use "1boy solo" to filter out homo stuff.

Pictures like that image should have 'solo_focus' instead and others should just have 'solo' removed. A more effective way to filter out "homo stuff" is to put 'yaoi' and 'yuri' into your blacklist. Tagging questions should go into forum #1706.

You can also use "-yaoi" to filter out yaoi. Incorrect tagging is a thing. Solo means single character and nothing else.

Already filtering yaoi tag. But there are lot of images with naked solo men I'd like to avoid, that don't have the yaoi tag, thus the "1boy solo rating:explicit", which happen to filter out "acceptable" pictures like the one above.

Definitely needs work. "solo_focus solo" has over 1760 posts even though the two are mutually exclusive.

I wonder if it is so hard to understand tags meanings. This image has only one character, yet instead of solo the solo_focus tag was used. No place is safe from ******** people.
