It has occurred to me that I have no idea what the difference between shoujo_ai and yuri is on Konachan.

I know the difference in terms of what they are in fiction, but not how we apply them to images here.
I’ve always thought about it yuri being questionable/explicit, and shoujo is being safe (except for maybe hot kissing)
Same, pretty much. I guess I need to do some sorting and double checking later.
Advice that's even better actually: what I ALSO do is everytime I see a lesbian anime picture, I think to myself: "what if they were DUDES?" Which then leads me to think, "if Konachan would delete it, it would be yaoi (or, yuri). If Konachan were to approve it, it would be shounen ai (or, shoujo ai).

Does that make sense?
The difference lies in the intent of the characters.

If their actions are sexual, it's yuri.
If their actions are purely romantical, its shoujo ai
The wiki pages we have for shoujo_ai and yuri seem pretty clear to me.

Damn. Ran me clean through, Zolxys.

I did have it explained to me once. I honestly just completely forget about the Wikis sometimes.

Well, that was over a year ago.
