Summary:Feature request: tag redirection
Description:Make main tags cover similar tags to avoid a "nobody is there but us chickens" error.

Example: "Ass" covers "butt" & "buttocks", which makes writing "butt" show pictures tagged with the "ass" tag.

Huh, sounds like tag aliases (if that was what you meant, anyway). Thankfully, that exists already! Here: https://gelbooru.com/index.php?page=alias&s=list.
Tag aliases are usually used to help consolidate pictures from multiple tags (that cover the same thing) into larger, more general tags for easier searching and less confusion. Some examples:

Differing wording for similar terms/ items: thigh_highs -> thighhighs / dickgirl -> futanari
Typos and misspellings: bukake -> bukkake / onepiece -> one_piece
Slang words: dick -> penis / boobs -> breasts
Nearly identical tags: side_tie_bikini -> side-tie_bikini

You're also free to make a tag alias request if you want.

Didn't know this was its name and didn't know it exists.
Thanks for the news. While I'm at it, can you tell me which features should I be aware of on Gelbooru?
